Honey is an all-natural ingredient that’s good for so much more than sweetening up your tea or coffee. As it turns out, this natural ingredient has a ton of skin and hair benefits, too. Made by the alchemy of bees collecting nectar, pollen, and resins from flowers, honey can help moisturize, fight aging, and fight bacteria. Plus, it’s loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and healing compounds.
Guerlain harnesses the qualities of the raw honey and the effectiveness of its benefits in their Abeille Royale skincare line. It’s a skincare program with Pure Royal Concentrate that stimulates the key mechanisms of the healing process within the skin to continuously help to repair skin, reduction wrinkles and the loss of tissue firmness. I’ve been trying out 3 of their products, the Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil, Abeille Royale Black Bee Honey Balm and Abeille Royale Repairing Honey Gel Mask. Keep reading to see my thoughts below…
Guerlain Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil
Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil has the power of a serum, the richness of an oil, and the freshness of a lotion. Guerlain really innovates with this non-greasy oil-in-water instantly plumps and radiant skin. This product left my skin feeling super smooth, moisturized, and nourished immediately after use. It’s not as thick and rich as a traditional beauty oil and truly is a “watery oil”, with a super light weight texture that absorbs quickly into the skin.
Within the oil, you’ll find suspended micro droplets of oil that are released as you massage the product on to your skin, leaving the complexion looking radiant. The skin feels incredibly silky and baby-soft to the touch. I love everything about this product, from the luxurious feel of the packaging, the scent, and finish.
Guerlain Abeille Royale Black Bee Honey Balm
This product is a god-send if you are suffering form dry skin. During the dry winter months it was the only thing that would protect my skin from chapping in the cold Canadian winter weather. What’s amazing is it never felt heavy or greasy. The Abeille Royale Black Bee Honey Balm is specially formulated by Guerlain to care dry, undernourished and weakened skin. It’s highly concentrated in Ouessant Black Bee Honey, which intensely moisturizes and nourishes for skin repair and leaves skin feeling supple and comfortable.
Guerlain Abeille Royale Repairing Honey Gel Mask
For an extra boost of hydration the Abeille Royale Repairing Honey Gel Mask is a luxurious, gel-textured mask that smooths and moisturizes skin instantly. Not only that, but it helps melt away find lines and wrinkles with a beauty-boosting formula leaves skin nourished and healthy-looking. It has an exquisite honey-gel texture that visibly plumps up the skin and I love using this as a weekly treat for my skin.

The Black Bee Honey Balm looks like something I would really need once summer is over. Strangely, my skin feels hydrated enough during the summer but when the cold season starts I feel like Frankenstein’s monster.

I never knew all the health benefits of honey. Only knew it tastes good on a buttermilk biscuit, and helps with allergies. Thanks for the info.
