My two sachets gave me just about a week's use. It is lovely and silky but not oily or greasy at all. After I applied this my skin felt smooth and nice and I then applied my moisturiser.

I can't say I noticed my lines vanishing but my skin did feel firmer and look less saggy and tired I think.

I would say this is a great product and provided you are not allergic to bee stings it does a good job.

I would buy it again but it isn't cheap. It was not soooo good that I would throw out all my other products I have in my stash and use this instead though.

Love the way it feels as I apply it and it makes my skin feel tighter
Weakest points
The price is a little steep
Summary
I had two sachet samples with 5ml in each so the 3 weeks they say needed to see the benefit was not possible

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 Age-Defying Serum and this is the second product in the range I will review.

The Serum is housed in a plain white squeeze tube with a screw top lid. The packing is simple and does not detract from the natural source of the ingredients. The tube is easy to dispense the product from and the serum is a semi opaque white colour with a medium consistency. The ingredients in this serum are really quite a powerful combination! It contains the amazing Purified Bee Venom (PBV™), Manuka Honey, Propolis Extract, Royal Jelly, Rosehip Seed Oil, Blackcurrant Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid. All of these ingredients have amazing benefits for the complexion and I was very excited to see the results after use.
After cleansing and toning I dispense an approximate large ‘pea size’ of serum and smooth between the palms before applying to my skin. The serum has a dry silky feel and glides beautifully and easily onto the skin. Upon application the serum immediately and rapidly absorbs into the skin. Initially this gave me the feeling that I needed to apply more but do refrain! The results after just one application proves that less is more with this powerful serum! The product has a beautiful but not overpowering fragrance that is a slightly sugary, sweet scent. It is fresh and uplifting and an absolute delight to the senses. My first application of this serum was after my evening cleanse and underneath the Manuka Rejeuvanting Night Cream (as directed). The following morning I was really quite stunned at my refection in the mirror! For a while now I have suffered prolonged stress which has resulted in some rather upsetting and prominent frown lines, both on my forehead and between the eyes. No matter what I use I have not been able to tame these visible lines. Remarkably, on the first morning these lines were more than half their usual depth and prominence and my whole facial area looked plumped, smoothed and more even toned! I am absolutely thrilled and over awed by these results!
The effects of the serum are immediate but over several weeks of use it just gets better and better. I have suffered no reactions from the serum and my lines are barely visible in comparison to their previous appearance before the trial.

I cannot recommend this product enough, especially for those who have concerns mainly with ageing! I would suggest using it in combination with the rest of the ApiNourish range. The results have astounded me and I am saving very hard to buy the full size products. To sum this serum up, it is powerful, pure and perfect!!
