New! Miss Spa Bee Venom Plumping Mask

bee venom mask packaging

The latest craze in beauty is bee venom, and Miss Spa has created a fantastic Bee Venom Plumping mask that’s affordable even for the beauty on a budget. The Miss Spa mask contains bee venom to firm and smooth your skin and Propolis Extract a substance harvested by bees that contains anti-oxidants and antiseptic. The mask is also comprised of aloe and honey extract to leave your face feeling refreshed and hydrated. I love sheets masks they are easy to use and I love the no mess clean up. The Miss Spa Bee Venom mask makes at home spa time a breeze just unfold, remove the paper backing and apply to clean dry skin. Let the mask do its magic for 20 minutes then remove and pat the remaining product into your skin.

I have very sensitive skin so I wondered if the bee venom would aggravate my skin or burn. But from the time of application to removal no stinging or burning. And the mask material is so light once I smoothed it on I could barely tell it was there. So as for the 20 minutes that didn’t quite happen. I put on my mask and climbed into bed to binge watch another episode of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, when lo and behold Netflix is not working. Argh!!! So frustrating and local tv won’t work its all crime dramas and hospital soap operas. Anyway I may have dozed off and by dozed off I mean fall asleep for the night. At some point in the night I woke up and realized the mask was still on and pulled it off then rolled back into my pillow pit and went back to sleep. So I can’t speak to the immediate results after removing the mask but this morning my skin felt hydrated and I could definitely see a bit of lift along my jaw and cheek line. Overall I think this is a great mask, it was easy to wear not too goopy or slippery and felt amazing. I will definitely be getting more to use in teh future.
