Today marks exactly 31 days since I started using Bénir BV-9 Platinum Provectus Super Serum with bee venom ($195 in the shop). I was anxious to try this serum after reading the ingredients (seven powerful peptides with antioxidants and bee venom), and their claim that, "After 30 days of use, wrinkles and lines look less pronounced, skin is firmer and behaves more youthfully
I'm 65, and although my skin is pretty healthy, it is showing signs of age. I've noticed more loss of elasticity in my cheeks, marionette lines below the corners of my mouth, enlarged pores (especially my chin) and droopy eye lids.
The product comes beautifully packaged in a tall, generous (1.7 oz) pump, but the container doesn't allow you to see how much serum is left. By weight, it feels like I've used less than half of it in a month. One pump goes a very long way — enough for my entire face and neck. It feels silky smooth going on and absorbs quickly with no noticeable fragrance.
I applied the Super Serum twice a day, both morning and night after cleansing. Immediately after it dries, my skin feels tighter, but not uncomfortably so, and upon close inspection, positive results are immediate. Fine lines are diminished, and my skin looks fresher. Normally, I follow with moisturizer and light foundation. That said, for three and a half weeks, I woke up disappointed. Although my skin looked better upon application, the next morning it was drab and mottled-looking again, with slightly sagging jowls and marionette lines still there.
Then four days ago, everything changed. At the first morning glance in the mirror, I noticed my skin had acquired a dewy, fresh look. I didn't look tired! The accumulative effect is very encouraging, and since there's still more than half a dispenser full, at this rate, my skin should look even more amazing in another 30 days.
There is now a noticeable improvement in my skin's overall texture, tone and elasticity. The pores on my chin are much smaller and less noticeable, and the marionette lines... well, the one on the left side has nearly disappeared, and the other is much less pronounced. My eyelids are not as droopy or wrinkled-looking, and the lines around and under my eyes are almost completely gone. I couldn't be happier with the result. The instructions state, "For best result, finish with BV-9 Platinum bee venom cream," and I can only imagine that using both products together would create an even more outstanding result.
At first, the price seemed way above my beauty budget, but doing the math, it now seems a reasonable investment in my skin, my face and overall attitude. Looking 10 to 15 years younger than my age always makes me feel better!
Bénir BV-9 Platinum Provectus Super Serum with bee venom is by far the best serum I've tried (I've tried many), and with patience and continued use, I anticipate even more improvement.
I give this product five stars. It delivers. I only wish I'd started using it 20 years ago. Thank you, Truth in Aging, for another fantastic product.
