I managed to get myself two small sample packs from Manuka Doctor and even as sample packs these I felt were expensive for the size of sample.
This cane in a small plastic squeezy tube and was a nice thick cream.
Once applied I found this was quickly absorbed by my skin and felt both nourishing and gentle on my face.
I liked the slightly honey aroma of the cream but it wasn't so string that it was overpowering. It was pleasantly sweet and nice to apply before bed time.
The next day my skin looked well nourished . the lines were still there but it just had a fresh well cared for look.
It is a very nice all natural product but it is not a cheap option.
I received a trial pack of the Manuka Doctor products and have written individual reviews for all. This is a new brand to me and I was captivated by the brand’s ethic, ingredients and products. Purified bee venom is renowned for its powerful benefits and this is what Manuka Doctor has to say about its cosmetic benefits
“Research into Purified Bee Venom has proven that this potent combination of enzymes, peptides and amino acids works on all levels of the skin to encourage naturally occurring cell regeneration, boost collagen formation, prevent sun damage and accelerate the recovery of damaged skin cells”
I was naturally intrigued to try these products based on these facts.
I received a 7ml sample of the ApiNourish Restoring Night Cream and this is the first product I will review.
The Night Cream is housed in a plain white squeeze tube with a screw top lid. The packing is simple and does not retract from the natural source of the ingredients. The tube is easy to dispense the product from and the cream is of a thick, indulgent consistency so there is no danger of over dispensing your product. After cleansing and toning I dispense an approximate ‘pea size’ of cream and smooth between the palms before applying to my skin. The product feels more like a balm to me that almost melts with the heat of your hands and glides beautifully and easily onto the skin. The product contains a mixture of oils, cocoa butter, honey and Shea Butter and it has a beautiful but difficult to describe fragrance. I can only describe it as a sugary, sweet fragrance and I love it so much I literally look forward to my night routine just to smell this wonderful cream. The cream absorbs extremely quickly and leaves no trace of residue or stickiness on the skin. The product is so highly concentrated this little tube has lasted me 3 weeks and I still have a quarter of a tube remaining. This is definitely a “less is more” product and although not on the cheaper end of the cosmetic pricing scale, it is excellent value for money based on its concentration.
The effects of this cream are immediate. Your skin drinks it in and the hydration is obvious. Each time, after application my skin feels plumped, soothed and has a rosy glow. Overnight the product continues to work and in the morning my skin is plumped, hydrated and rosy. I have suffered no breakouts or irritation at any time.
I am overjoyed at the results on my skin and would highly recommend this as a night cream for most complexions. Do not be put off by the thick texture of the cream, as once applied you will quickly see the benefits of these wonderful ingredients.
I, for one will be purchasing a full size jar of this cream as based on my trial I believe the results will continue to show and get better with each usage. A wonderful, indulgent, nurturing cream with instant results. And best of all…..it is bee friendly and not one of our ‘buzzy’ friends has been harmed in the process! This is a potent product that won’t sting your budget!!!
