Firm, fresh skin in a flash
I have my fair share of aging concerns, but my skin’s firmness hasn’t become the subject of scrutiny (at least not yet). But never one to procrastinate, I figured I’d be proactive when I received Manuka Doctor’s Gold Dust Firming Serum—and see what all the bee-based ingredient buzz was about.
Just to rewind a bit, Manuka Doctor turns to purified bee venom, Manuka honey from New Zealand and propolis (which is essentially nutrient-packed “bee glue”) to improve a variety of skin concerns—including visible signs of aging. This particular product offers the collagen-boosting, hydrating and nourishing benefits of these hive-derived ingredients along with a dash of colloidal gold dust for instant yet subtle luminosity.
The first time I tried it, I absolutely felt a tightening sensation as the serum absorbed and my skin looked glowy and fresh—before I even started my makeup. And when I proceeded to makeup, this extra step in my skincare regimen didn’t get in the way (i.e. no pilling or residue). Bottom line: I’ll definitely be keeping this serum in the rotation in hopes that it will help maintain my skin’s firmness and perhaps improve the little age-related changes that are already on my radar.
