Do it yourself botox in 6 steps | Heaven skin care + Bee Venom Mask & Bee Venom Eyes

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

In June I am turning 26 (only? already?) and lately I have been getting more and more into anti-aging. I protect my skin from the sun, I try to be gentle with my skin and I respond to reports on innovative anti-aging products like a dog responds to the smell of his favorite treat: with utter and total excitement! It’s probably a little early for botox (or maybe not, who knows) but I definitely won’t say no to the natural alternative for botox. Say what, there’s a natural alternative for botox? Yes, apparently there is, in the form of Heaven’s Bee Venom Mask and Bee Venom. Don’t frown, you’ll get wrinkles, let me explain. I already wrote a post about the products when I first got them and I won’t bore you with all the details again, but the bottom line is that the Bee Venom products contain natural bee venom that relaxes the muscles in the skin and makes you look all (or at least almost) wrinkle-free again in just a matter of minutes. Talk about a big promise! I have been using the Bee Venom Mask and the Bee Venom Eyes daily for a few weeks now and every weekend I take the time for what I call my do-it-yourself botox routine. Today I am showing you my DIY anti-wrinkle routine and I am giving you a little review of all my new Heaven products.

Step 1: Cleansing

Every Saturday night I replace my usual cleansing routine with one that includes only Heaven products. I use the Limited Edition Cleansing Milk to cleanse my skin and then use the Orange Flower Cell Renewal. The milk removes dirt and cleanses the skin, but it also repairs, tones and rejuvenates it at the same time. The toner gently peels away dead skin cells and smoothens the skin.

Step 2: Exfoliating

After cleansing I exfoliate my skin with the Heaven Skin Polish Exfoliator. It contains fruit acid and echinacea to remove dead skin cells and gently peels off the upper layer of the skin. I leave the Skin Polish Exfoliator on for about 30 to 60 seconds and then take it off with water. The light gel formula tingles a bit, but it doesn’t sting and the treatment is not painful at all.

Step 3: Nourishing

No matter how you look at it and no matter how gentle an exfoliator may be, it’s always a good idea to give you skin some extra TLC afterwards. That’s why I apply the Heaven Overnight Success Moisturizer after I exfoliate. It intensely nourishes the skin and has an anti-aging effect.

Step 4: Mask

The next morning after cleansing I use Heaven’s Deep Cleansing & Firming Mask. This clay mask removes dirt and oil and makes the skin smooth, firm and ready for what it is really all about in this do-it-yourself botox routine: the Bee Venom products.

Step 5: Bee Venom

I apply a thin layer of the Bee Venom Mask on my whole face and I use the Bee Venom Eyes on my eye contour. For some reason I expected the products to sting (bee venom, you know) but they don’t. Both products have a very pleasant light texture, are pale yellow and smell very nice. I don’t know what it is I am smelling, but it smells very natural and luxurious. What a random description, I know, but there’s no better way I can put it. The Bee Venom Mask and the Bee Venom Eyes smell like the kind of products you would find at a professional spa. So yes, luxurious.

Step 6: Moisturizing

In the last step of my routine I apply the Heaven Age Defiance Moisturizer. It’s an intensely hydrating moisturizer with anti-aging capacities that protects the skin from external influences. For me personally the moisturizer is too rich to be used daily, but once a week after all that peeling and purifying my skin can use the Age Defiance Moisturizer.
Et voilà, do-it-yourself botox in six simple steps, all without needles or creepy doctors! I am really happy with my new Heaven products. They all look professional, they are very pleasant to use and they smell nice. Ever since I turned 23 I have been saying that I would like to hit pause so that time would stop, and maybe now that’s possible with these products. 26 is probably a bit too young to really judge the anti-aging effect of the Bee Venom products, but I am a strong believer in prevention and I definitely intend to keep using both Bee Venom products. *hits pause*

What are your thoughts? Is (almost) 26 too young to be thinking about anti-aging, or did I get started too late?

  1. Wel, ik denk nog niet echt aan anti age (22 hierzo) maar ik heb wel al enkele anti age producten in mijn routine zitten, nog zo’n voorstander van preventie dus ;) haha ik had ook het gevoel dat het zou prikken, wel fijn dat het wat milder is voor je huid. ben benieuwd naar het resultaat binnen 10 jaar :D

  2. I think you do right! I get you so well, I’m also paying much attention to it now, better starts early then have regrets then!:) The stuff looks very good, for sure they are a nice products! Kisses! xo

  3. I think you should always take care of your skin and really concentrate on prevention in your mid twenties so you’re right on! That’s exactly when I started and I feel like people keep telling me I look younger than 31 (why thank you). I do have some typical eye lines but products and makeup really perk my eyes up and make me look younger. Also I think they originally happened because of too heavy concealer so, stay away from heavy concealer! :)

      • Aww thank you – you’re so sweet! I’m always proud of people for taking care of themselves so you go girl! I think you will see the results of taking care of your already beautiful skin for years to come.

      • Oh yeah, I so agree. It always saddens me when I see people who’ve let themselves go and don’t take pride in taking care of their body. In my opinion, if you respect yourself, you take good care of yourself. So I am wondering, how did you come to the conclusion that it was the heavy concealer that causes a few lines around your eyes? I have been mulling it over in my head, lol :-)

  4. Je kan beter wat vroeger beginnen denk ik altijd, want eenmaal je rimpels hebt is het natuurlijk te laat :) Zien er fijne producten uit!

  5. Hello miss !!
    Pas mal ta routine du samedi soir ! C’est interessant en tout cas !!
    Et perso j’ai commencé à utiliser du contour pour les yeux anti age depuis mes 22 ans lol
    je ne veux pas avoir de ride non non non ! Et pour l’âge je pense que c’est comme l’on ressent le besoin ;)

  6. Thanks for the great tips.

    If you get a sec, check out my latest post. I would love to read what you think.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Goed review, erg duidelijk stappenplan. Als een ‘onder de twintiger’ myself kan ik niet echt meepraten over het hele anti-aging, maar het is wel dat de cosmetica markt, naar mijn gevoel, de laatste jaren overal anti-aging en SPF in stopt. Er zit waarschijnlijk wel een bron van waarheid in het beter voorkomen dan genezen, zou het eens moeten opzoeken.

  8. Preventie is the way to go, schade die zichtbaar is, kan je niet meer weg smeren. Ik doe ook aan preventie, altijd al gedaan en ik ben blij, 37 met het huidje van een 28 jarige hoor ik vaak. Frons rimpel is hardnekkig, maar ach je kan de genen niet tegenwerken. Ik ben zeer nieuwsgierig naar deze lijn, leuke review, thanks.

    • Woohoo, way to go :-D Ik hoop dat ze tegen mij net hetzelfde zeggen wanneer ik 37 ben. Maar je hebt wel gelijk, aan fronsrimpels en expressierimpels kan je weinig doen, Ik heb ook een beetje een ”denklijn”. Klinkt mooier dan rimpel eh ;-)

  9. Je pense qu’il n’est jamais trop tôt pour penser à aux anti rides/vieillissements. Tu es jeune mais ce n’est pas trop tôt je pense. J’ai 22 ans et il m’arrive de m’en servir alors tu vois !

  10. Oh wow, that’s quite an extensive routine! Some say you should start using anti-aging products at 30. I don’t really have an opinion about that. I don’t really look for anti-aging products, but some might have strayed into my stash for one reason or another. I think sun protection and a healthy lifestyle definitely help, but it’s good to know when those fail, there are still pots of potions we can resort to!

    • I only do this once a week, though, and this is spread over two days. My daily routine is a lot shorter :-) I think you’re right about the healthy lifestyle and sun protection. I try to eat and live healthy, and I try to remember to use sunscreen.

  11. Wat een fijne producten! Ik ben heel benieuwd naar heaven’s deep cleansing & firming mask. Ga ‘m zeker proberen! Tnx voor de uitgebreide review!!

  12. I’ve been looking all over this blog,and it is so helpful! I am just not talented at beauty and make up, and there is so much helpful info on here :)

    xoxo,

  13. Ik vind het niet raar dat je er op je (bijna) 26ste mee bezig bent hoor. Ik ben vanaf mijn 25ste oogcrème gaan gebruiken en nu ik 31 ben, ben ik er nog meer mee bezig om mijn huid goed te houden. Al moet je je ook weer niet gek laten maken door het hele anti-aging gebeuren, want ergens begrijp ik ook niet waarom we allemaal zo geobsedeerd lijken door jong eruit blijven zien. Tja, zonbescherming, niet te agressieve producten en veel gezichtsolie doen het voor mij wel, alleen speelt een gezonde levensstijl en een gezond eetpatroon ook mee natuurlijk. Ik ben iemand die vaak veel te laat gaat slapen en daardoor korte nachten maakt, wat eigenlijk niet goed is, maar ja. En ik maak me snel zorgen (=stress) en dat is ook niet goed, dus ik zou nog wat kunnen verbeteren ;-).

    • Oh, ben jij 31? Dat wist ik niet, je ziet er veel jonger uit. Je hebt wel gelijk over die gezonde levenstijl. Ik ben ook een enorme stresskip, en dat helpt natuurlijk niet echt. Qua gezond eten, genoeg bewegen en genoeg slapen doe ik het denk ik wel oké :-)

  14. Dank je wel voor je reactie op mijn blog. Blijf me zeker volgen, er komt nog veel meer!

    Jouw blog ziet er ook super uit… I follow you 2;-)

    Liefs,

    Lotte

  15. Wow, I hope I can be more like you, I’m too lazy with skincare. I’m trying to start early with anti aging treatment, but getting to hard since I’m a little lazy~
    I think you started at the right time!

    • Oh hehe, but putting in the effort will (hopefully) be worth it in the end! :-) And don’t you like putting on creams and masks and all that stuff? I love it, it relaxes me.

  16. Loved this post!

    I started the anti aging care at 26, I’m 27 now and I’m getting more and more concious by the minute! I do like the idea of the venom, will have to look into the products you mentioned. The beauty junkie within me is intrigued!

  17. I’m turning 33 next week (WTF?! Pardonnez-moi…) and I started using eye cream when I was 21-22. It’s definitely paying off because I don’t really have much in the way of fine lines around my eyes, so I’m so happy I started young! It’s never too early to prevent troubs down the line! I am really intrigued by these bee venom products. Thanks for sharing your weekly venomous (LOL) routine! Might have to add some of these items to my summer wish list!

  18. GReat, great, great review! Melissa, again, such a professional description!
    I personally think you’re a bit young to be worrying about wrinkles, BUT you’re just in perfect timing to be caring about your skin a little further than mosturizing: PREVENTION! is the keyword in my book. Once you get the lines, is often too late for any cream. I, for instance have started too late to use the good products (specially eye area products) I usually limited myself to sun protection and mosturizing until the age of 30 and that’s too late in our world!! (just my opinion).
    I never heard of the brand before, is this available in Switzerland?

    • You’re so sweet, your comments are always so nice! :-) I agree 100% on the importance of prevention. I got my products from skincareorganics.co.uk. They ship to Switzerland.

I love your comments! (spam and URLs will be removed)
