Royal Nectar Moisturizing Face Lift is a light daily moisturizer with manuka honey, bee venom and a soothing blend of antioxidant oils. It hydrates skin, leaving it feeling nourished and supple, while firming and diminishing lines.

Directions:
Use daily on cleansed skin.

TIA Review by Marta:
I was very excited to track down the original source of bee venom (made famous by the British Royals) all the way to a family-owned beekeeping business in New Zealand

I really, really like this moisturizer. It has a light, almost whipped texture, is absorbent and not greasy at all. As would be expected Royal Nectar Moisturising Face Lift has a pleasant whiff of honey. With a lot to love and almost nothing to dislike, this is great moisturizer at any price and is excellent for under $60.

So what's with the bee venom anyway? Well, this ingredient had the British press all of a flutter earlier this year when it was said to account for Camilla's transformation from someone who looked like she had spent most of her life galloping on horses in all weathers. It turned out that bee venom, also known as apitoxin, is made up mainly of peptides. The venom acts as a strong anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. Yes, this is actual venom and so if you are allergic to bee venom you should do a patch test before using this product. Manuka honey is another of the key ingredients and this is an able healer of wounds and an anti-bacterial that can keep acne under control.

Although this moisturizer's formulation is light and easily suitable for daily use, the ingredients are similar to Royal Nectar's Face Mask. There are nourishing antioxidants in the form of avocado, vitamin E, apricot and rose hip. I like the inclusion of marshmallow as it has an inhibitory effect on hyaluronidase, the enzyme that degrades hyaluronic acid in our skin tissue. In case you scan Royal Nectar's ingredients list and wonder what "optiphen plus" is, it is basically the preservative phenoxyethanol, and ticaxan is a stabilizer.

Our Take...

I was very excited to track down (actually it was Faye) the original source of bee venom all the way to a family-owned beekeeping business in New Zealand. The Royal Nectar Face Mask turned out to be a dead ringer for the one made in the UK – and apparently beloved by Camilla Duchess of Cornwall... Read Full Article

    This is a moisturiser with a sting! (sorry, I couldn't resist it) It keeps my face beautifully moisturised and my face feels like it's protected all day long. Furthermore, my skin feels simultaneously soft, smooth AND tightened. I really recommend it for all mature faces

    Royal Nectar moisturizing face-lift...a good moisturizer. Esp combo skin. May not be enough for drier skins.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    Royal nectar face lift and mask are my go to products when my skin needs a pick-me-up. I use the face lift as a deep moisturizer during the day when my skin is feeling particularly parched.

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    I love using the face lift cream as it is very comforting and smells good. However, I don't really see any "face lift" results from using it.

    Gave this away to a friend, just couldn't get past the strange smell. I only used it for a couple of weeks at night and didn't notice any difference anyway.

    I really liked the non-greasy texture of this product and the way it easily absorbed into my skin. I was able to apply makeup without it sliding off of my face. No other face cream I have ever used has been this easy to wear-anything else I have used has been greasy. I did not notice a tightening effect though, nor did I notice any difference in my skin's texture by the end of my sample tube. I will order a full size of this product.

    This is a lovely light moisturizing face cream that has a wonderful non-greasy consistency and a very gentle honey smell. I applied this product twice daily for a month, once in the morning after my toner and vitamin C serum, and once nightly after toner and glycolic acid cream. I enjoy using it, as it leaves no trace and has a really pleasant fragrance. But is it a miracle facelift? Honestly, no. Perhaps greater results will appear with further use, and I plan to finish the jar, so I’ll let you know if things change. I see no harm in plying my face with a product like Royal Nectar, which I’m sure does no harm and surely does some good.

    There is so much to LOVE-LOVE-LOVE about the Royal Nectar Moisturising Face Lift, and one of the main things is the scent! I want to use it as a body moisturizer. My favorite ingredients in the whole world are lavender and honey, and this cream has both along with apricot oil, evening primrose, and a host of other wonderful-smelling oils. That being said, I thought it would be so much more moisturizing than it is. That is a disappointment along with the fact that the directions tell you to use this cream sparingly. VERY HARD to do when it smells this great!

    I am a 55-year-old female with really good skin, a few surface lines, and little sun damage, but, I didn’t find any lifting effects after using it for a month. My slackened jawline is, unfortunately, still the same. I applied it to my neck, also with no visible results. I will caution to use a little of it, because I did find I had some pesky breakouts on my chin and around my nose after using it. I typically never break out, so I do attribute it to the cream. The other huge advantage of this cream is that it is a great insect repellent – I live in the South, so that is a really good thing.

    All in all, I give this cream an 8 out of 10. What can be improved? I think it needs to be thicker and a lot more hydrating. Surprising that it’s not, considering most of the ingredients in it that are moisturizing, or so I thought. They need to make this cream into a body moisturizer – one that you can use liberally! Love it. The smell is the best!

    I have been using Royal Nectar for one week. I am 42 and I have spent copious amounts of money on potions, lotions, creams and masks! This is the first product that I can actually see making a difference in the texture and quality of my skin both face and neck:). I find it helps with skin imperfections ... Most likely thanks to to the manuka honey. I recently ordered the mask as well... Will post again! Also just wanted to say Truth in Ageing is fabulous... from product research to pricing, customer service, and prompt delivery with attention to detail... Marta has done a stellar job!

    Aside from doing a great job at moisturizing, I also noticed an improvement in the texture of my skin, especially on my neck – it was visibly smoother. (And I really haven’t had any products that produced any results for the neck.) Although I don’t see any “lifting” effect, I am pleased with the improvement I have experienced. As a side note, I did get a nice compliment while visiting my dermatologist’s office. The nurse practitioner remarked how well my skin looked and asked what I had been doing different. Since the Royal Nectar was the only product I had been using, I must have it to thank. My only suggestion for improving the product would be to have it packaged in a pump, rather than a jar. I intend to keep it in my daily routine as it performed well for me, and I would recommend it for guys and gals alike.

    I also *really* like the Royal Nectar Moisturising Face Lift … it’s light and I can almost feel my skin absorbing it … and it’s really making a difference on my neck … another great product from TIA.

    Hi Jodie, I think that this would be great for you. It is a nourishing mask that makes the skin glow and the properties of bee venom are preventative. Enjoy!

    Hi Marta
    Just had a quick query I was hoping you could help me with - I am currently debating whether to get the mask or the moisturising cream in this range. I am 25 and using it more as a preventative step (not to mention that I have sensitive skin that loves all natural ingredients). I wasn't sure based on your reviews whi than reversing the effects of again. Which would be best as a preventative treatment (especially seeing as the mask is more like a mask than a moisturising cream in comparison to heaven)?
    Thanks!

    Thanks for your kind words Monica and taking the time to write. I must admit that I love the mask. Gives me a healthy glow every time.

    Hi Sean, the texture is light and I haven't had any breakout issues. I haven't especially noticed a lifting effect (the mask, however, does give a lifting/tightening effect).
