Appreciated for thousands of years, honey is a natural foodstuff that provides a host of benefits. Traditional knowledge of its healing and repairing powers has been confirmed by science and then developed to produce targeted cosmetics to repair the signs of ageing.

Repairing Honey Gel Mask is the latest arrival to the Abeille Royale family. Its creamy appearance, gentle colour and mild honey scent all invite you to dip a finger into it.

Formulated from an extremely strict selection of bee products, including Pure Ouessant Honey and Exclusive Royal Jelly, both 100% controlled, 100% natural origin and 100% produced in France for Guerlain, the Pure Royal Concentrate has proven its effectiveness in repairing skin micro-tears and fighting against oxidative phenomena. Repairing Honey Gel Mask promotes skin reconstruction, boosts healing and is involved in re-sculpting the tissue, which helps to reduce free radicals.

Since its launch in 2013, firming, toning and re-sculpting Face Treatment Oil has risen to the ranks of a best-seller and cult product. A non-greasy “watery oil” texture with a golden translucency, revolutionary and enchanting in one, which instantly activates the skin’s beauty; and a star ingredient with one-of-a-kind performance – honey from the Ouessant Black Bee.

Incredibly rich as it nourishes the skin without ever leaving a greasy residue, incredibly light as it comes to rest like a fresh and original drop of water, it instantly and effortlessly melts into the skin for total absorption. From the moment of application, a feeling of well-being releases tension in the skin, while the face gradually recovers tonic support to create perfect curves and more defined contours.

This honey is produced by an endemic black bee from the common heather, which flourishes among other wild flowers sheltered from any pollution in the protected environment of Ouessant Island off the coast of Brittany. Harvested and protected by Guerlain through its partnership with the Brittany Black Bee Conservation Association, the ACANB, Ouessant honey boasts an absolute purity and holds cosmetic treasures. Its wealth of amino acids and trace elements along with its high fructose content make it an essential resource for the skin’s resistance and elasticity.

Like the Repairing Honey Gel Mask, Face Treatment Oil luxuriantly pairs the pleasures of its honey texture with the sensual delights of a re-sculpting technique that instantly boosts firmness.

After taking up two or three drops on your fingertips, warmed for a few seconds in the palm of the hand:

  • For a lifting action, smooth the face along the jaw line towards the ears, from the cheekbones to the temples and from the centre of the forehead outwards. This massage drains and smooths out the skin, encouraging the elimination of toxins.
  • For a firming action, place both fists on your cheeks and, using firm circular motions, move your hands up towards the cheekbones. This technique stimulates the cutaneous muscles to improve their tone.

Abeille Royale Firmness Activating Oil and New Repairing Honey Gel Mask are available at Guerlain counters in the UAE.
