Guerlain has recently added two new products to the brands Abeille Royale skincare line and I could not be happier. I have had products from the Abeille Royale range in my skincare routine for the last few years and they are my absolute staples. Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil is the only face oil I have been using for my combination skin and it never breaks me out, makes my skin supple, youthful, and radiant. And now that we are in fall, and soon will be in winter, this oil and the Double R Serum are saviours for my skin, keeping it moisturized and cared. If you want to read my detailed thoughts on Abeille Royale Youth Water Oil (here), Double R Serum (here), Abeille Royale Day and Night Cream (here).
Guerlain Abeille Royale skincare line has been around 10 years now. With the advancement of science, technology, and innovation, it has been proven time and again how bee products repair skin. Guerlain’s Abeille Royale skincare line is celebrating 10 years of success and proof of the effectiveness of its products, thanks to the brand’s approach that pairs transparency across production channels with a commitment to the protection of biodiversity and the creation of a beautiful and sustainable world.
“For 10 years, Guerlain Research has focused on the exceptional repairing properties of honey and the science behind the skin repair mechanisms
that help combat the principle signs of ageing wrinkles and skin sagging.”
Now coming to the newest addition to Guerlain Abeille Royale skincare line – Cleansing Oil and Fortifying Lotion. Guerlain Abeille Royale Cleansing Oil gently removes makeup from the face, eyes, and lips while helping get rid of the skin impurities and pollutant particles. The cleansing oil has an ultra-fine texture with fresh and airy honeyed scents that transform on contact with water into a milky emulsion that rinses off easily, without leaving a greasy or oily residue. I apply it directly on dry skin and massage gently, then I add some water which turns the oil into a milky emulsion. Then I prefer using a washcloth to remove it, even rinsing with warm water works nicely. The skin feels fresh, supple, and clean. The cleansing oil is gentle for my sensitive eye area and even lips. My skin felt comfortable, no dry skin feels. I did not experience any irritation or breakouts while using this cleansing oil. If it is the evening, I prefer using a second cleanser after this cleansing oil, just to make sure my face is clean before applying my nightly skincare products.
Guerlain Abeille Royale Fortifying Lotion with Royal Jelly is launched just in time for fall and winter when my skin needs extra care and nourishment. The Fortifying Lotion is a fresh aqueous light liquid lotion that has been the first step in my skincare routine after cleansing that helps prepare the skin for the next skincare products like the serum, moisturizer or even before massaging the skin. It rebalances the skin, hydrates it. The results are supple and radiant skin. It has the same fresh, airy honeyed scent as the Cleansing oil. “As the first essential step in the Abeille Royale ritual, the Fortifying Lotion combines microencapsulated Royal Jelly and BlackBee Repair technology to prepare and strengthen the skin.” Since I started using this lotion in my skincare routine, day and night – taking few drops on the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, pat on my skin, I feel my skin is smoother, hydrated, and radiant.
Guerlain’s Exclusive Royal Jelly is a very interesting ingredient in the Abeille Royale line. Royal Jelly is the most precious substance from the beehive, capable of transforming an ordinary bee into a queen with exceptional vitality. It is produced in very small quantities in Guerlain’s exclusive sourcing in France. The Royal Jelly is a natural source of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and vitamins. It helps with the skin’s ability to withstand the effects of stress and pollution.
In keeping with the rest of the Abeille Royal line, the new bottles for Cleansing Oil and Fortifying Lotion has been designed to ensure a limited environmental impact. Apart from these amazing new launches, I also had an opportunity to attend the virtual launch event with the brands International Makeup Artist and Skincare Expert Maxime Poulin. He shared some amazing tips and techniques, massage techniques – a few of them are shared in the video here.
I am really enjoying these two new additions to my skincare routine. Abeille Royale skincare line definitely is my most loved and recommended anti-ageing range. Guerlain Beauty Products and Fragrances are available at Guerlain Boutiques, Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, and Holt Renfrew.*Press samples
