The secret to Millie Mackintosh's glowing skin

Bee venom is one of those ingredients that everyone seems to be crazy for in the beauty world at the moment; in fact, it was predicted as the biggest beauty trend for 2013. A brand that have dedicated 10 years of research into the effects of purified bee venom, I've been getting to grips with a few pieces from Manuka Doctor.

Foaming Cleanser
Apiclear range

This is really lovely for achieving a really polished skin feel. You could team it with a muslin cloth to remove make-up, too, but be sure to avoid the eye area. It smells quite neutral and very fresh – perfect for washing away a busy day at work. The consistency foams as soon as you mix it with water, so sometimes for a slightly deeper clean I’ll work it onto damp skin before beginning to massage away with water.


Skin Treatment Serum

A beautiful serum and by far my favourite piece from the range. One of the things that purified bee venom can be attributed to is an anti-inflammatory effect and on using this serum I’ve seen the strongest evidence of that. A gel-like clear formula, it instantly cools the skin on application and sinks in seamlessly. It claims to leave skin ‘calmer and cooler’ and I can safely say that it does.



Restoring night cream
Apinourish range

With lots of restorative ingredients like Vitamin E and Rosehip Oil, this is a lovely bed time treat. The texture is almost like a balm because it is very thick but not oily, and it will leave your skin looking plump and fresh by morning. If you have oily skin this may be too rich for you; instead, I’d stick to serum for the face and save the cream for your neck. night cream

Age Defying Serum

A richer consistency than lots of serums, this is great for those nights when your skin needs an extra boost of moisture. One thing I would note about this is that you should only use a small amount because there seems to be quite a residue if you layer it on. Be gentle with the pump and squeeze a smaller amount than you normally would, taking time to work it into the face and neck. It will leave your skin feeling soft by morning.
