On my journey for glowing, clear skin I heard a lot of buzz about the wondrous stuff made by bees and its numerous benefits for the skin. Guerlain’s exceptional formula offers the richness of an oil, the lightness of a lotion and the power of a serum. Enriched with nourishing microbeads that melt quickly to moisturize the skin, leaving it silky and super soft without weighing it down. I could write an entire essay on how beneficial honey is for the skin, so I really love this natural formula being the first protective and repairing layer in my moisturizing regime. I found that it dried a bit tacky on its own but paired perfectly with my daily moisturizers, leaving my skin supple with a dewy, natural glow. I used it for over a week, morning and night, under my regular moisturizers and I am astonished by how youthful my skin looks! Guerlain delivers on everything this magic potion promises – renewing radiance, anti-aging, and anti-puffiness, while plumping up all the right places! I can smoothly apply my make-up over it beautifully, but now that I’ve discovered the Youth Watery Oil from Guerlain, I’ll be showing off my healthy and glowing bare skin more confidently!
The packaging is splendidly regal! Fit for a Queen! The fragrance is surprisingly slightly strong, but in the most delightful way! Instead of smelling like a flower, you’ll smell like a field of wildflowers! The potency of the fragrance does diminish once you’ve applied your usual moisturizer. This must have been what Angelina was wearing the day she was photographed being kissed by thousands of honeybees! They must have thought that she was a big, beautiful flower!
I have been wanting to try Guerlain's skincare since their astounding collaboration with actress and philanthropist, Angelina Jolie. In an initiative to raise awareness for bee conservation the Hollywood starlet shocked the world by covering herself in thousands of live honey bees for a photoshoot with National Geographic.

I applaud Guerlain Paris for taking the initiative to really make a difference for a better world and having such a positive impact on the environment to help save the bees! I really love how much research they have done about all of the benefits honey has on our skin. Guerlain's website is full of in-depth knowledge and years of perfecting the most exquisite skincare formulas.

I am fascinated with nature's most miraculous skincare emollient: Honey. Did you know that honey naturally opens the pores, helping clear away dirt. And because honey is antibacterial, it is very effective in the prevention and treatment of acne. Yet, it is not harsh or abrasive, nor does it dry or strip your skin. In fact, honey is loaded with minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and natural enzymes that literally nourish your skin from the outside in. It is also a humectant, which helps your skin absorb and retain moisture. While other skincare products are full of toxic ingredients like parabens and phthalates, Guerlain's gentle formulas use 95% all natural ingredients. So, instead of spending a small fortune purchasing all sorts of specialty skincare items that promise to combat specific skin issues, i.e. acne, sensitivity, dry skin, etc. mother nature seems to know what's best ... pure and simple.
Guerlain Paris is one of my favorite skincare brands! Committed to preserving biodiversity, innovating sustainability, acting for the climate and creating a positive social impact. And above all, they seek to protect one of nature's most precious wonders... bees.
