I think I first hear about bee venom for anti-aging on Gwyneth Paltrow’s website, GOOP. Don’t get all rankled at the mere mention of GP, I know isn’t always easy to swallow. However, the bee venom was something that stuck with me. I’m not about to inject anything in my face. Not at this point in my life or wallet. But the BV-9 Platinum, the first 100% active ingredient skin cream using injectable grade bee venom peaked my curiosity. After all, I have this pesky dark spot (running without sunscreen, I think.) and I want it to fade from sight and memory.
Created by Benir founder Shelley Collins, BV-9 is now focused on bringing the purest, active-based ingredients with the Power Trio formula made from bee venom, arigireline and hyaluronic acid, which work together to restore skin to its natural beauty. Pure ingredients equals pure power and I like that. I have a small sample and for the next few weeks I will be applying the BV-9 to only that dark spot for maximum results, I hope. I will post a picture by year’s end and we will see the results.
BV-9 is an anti-aging product first and foremost. It does heal skin but it keeps skin soft, supple and prevents the signs of aging by moisturizing deep down. It works like a very mild form of botox and is suggested in the dry areas like your eyes.
