April Favourites…

Hi lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

It’s a little late but here’s my April Favourites, and there are quite a few products that I’ve loved over the last month, some are new favourites and some are always on this old face of mine.


Mark and I have been out and about quite a bit lately visiting family etc, and now the nicer weather has arrived in England I’m using a lighter base on my face, and my favourite is the gorgeous Heaven Skincare Silk  Skin Bee Bee Cream, it minimises fine lines and wrinkles because it’s anti ageing and contains the patented ABeetoxin which was created by Deborah Mitchell owner of Heaven Skincare. It also has an SPF20. It gives my skin a lovely glow while at the same time provides hydration and coverage. You can read my full review HERE.

Another favourite that I use every day is my Heaven Skincare Heavenly Eyes Regenerating Complex. It is my perfect eye cream! I’ve been using this every day since December last year and I love the way my under eyes are looking. I still have my “hoods” and this lifts them slightly, temporarily, after all nothing will get rid of those except surgery, this eye cream is so cooling and hydrating it leaves my under eyes smooth and ready for makeup, and it doesn’t cause any puffiness either. Read full review HERE.

What can I say about this sell out palette from Makeup Revolution? It has become my favourite palette that the brand has given us so far. It’s in collab with Jane Cunningham aka British Beauty Blogger. It’s perfect for any age, the mixture of the different colors and textures is truly fab read my full review HERE.

My next favourite I haven’t actually reviewed yet. It was one of my birthday pressies from Mark, a gorgeous gift set called In The Pink and it’s from the brand Bomb Cosmetics. I love bath bombs but don’t tend to get to a Lush store so when a shop in our town began stocking Bomb Cosmetics products I was a very happy bunny. This gift set is gorgeous, it’s pink, it’s fruity, it’s very girly it’s just ME! I will be writing reviews very soon, so I hope you will come back for that.


There is a review coming of the MUA Makeup Academy Eye Define Volume Nourish & Care mascara. It’s made it into my April favourites because I’ve been using it every day since Jade at MUA sent it to me as a gift for my birthday, along with a cute little eye lash curler too. Used together they have transformed the way my eyelashes look, and I’m very happy with that!

MUA Skin Define Matte Perfect foundation, just so lovely it had to be in my April favourites. I don’t use a heavier foundation in the warmer months, I go for a BB cream, but this has been my go to foundation up till now. You can read why I love it HERE.

My last two favourites I thought I would never get to try. They were gifted to me by my blogger friend Kim Davis from Thefabcompany  HERE. She sent me a Thermal Cleansing Balm from Omorovicza to try and it’s been fabulous to use. I’ve been using it at night to remove all traces of the day. I reviewed it HERE. The Queen of Hungary Mist is a gorgeous refreshing facial mist that I use after cleansing every morning and night. It’s been fabulous for those hot flush moments too, when I get a hot flush I spritz my face and the back of the neck, wonderful! My review is HERE.

So that’s my favourites for April, I wonder if any of them will be in my May favourites? We’ll see.





Heaven Skincare…. Silver Bee Venom Mask

 Welcome to  Elegant Ageless Beauty. I’m Teresa.

This must be the piece de resistance of my beautiful Heaven by Deborah Mitchell Skincare that the lovely lady herself sent to me at Christmas time. This is the Silver Bee Venom Mask.


This amazing product is a multi tasker and then some! It’s loved by celebrities and royalty.  It’s ingredients are all organic and contains bee venom, nature’s alternative to Botox and Deborah Mitchell has upped the ante by creating and patented Abeetoxin* a formula that is said to have immediate effects by relaxing lines and wrinkles, and tightens and firms the skin. It is said to have an instant anti ageing effect, firms and releases collagen, it helps to relax the muscles of the face and is an analgesic. Other ingredients in this beautiful mask are Organic Rose and Organic Lavender, Organic Marshmallow herb, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Beta Carotene, Manuka Honey, with bee venom and Abeetoxin* this makes for a very powerful treatment mask.

I tried to find out how bee venom is extracted, because as we all know that when a bee stings it will die thereafter, and with the population of bees at risk I really needed to find out more. I haven’t had an answer straight from the “bees” mouth, but I have found an interview that Deborah Mitchell did with the Daily Mail, where she explains all. Deborah is an official guardian of bees, she donates a percentage of profits to bee charities, and also the way she extracts the venom will actually save the lives of bees. A very small electrical current on a pane of glass will make the bees “sting” the glass, it doesn’t cause them any harm but it will encourage them to release their venom and NOT their stinger because the glass is too hard for that to be released into. The bee lives, and the venom is then just scraped off the glass.

So what did I think of this bee-utiful face mask? I adore the packaging, it looks like a glass cube and is as weighty as glass but it’s not glass I think it’s probably perspex. Within the glass looking cube there is an inner well that holds the wonder cream. When I first opened the jar I took a sniff, it smells amazing! mostly of organic rose and lavender, very subtle and yummy. I decided to use this as an overnight mask treatment and applied it after cleansing taking right up under my eyes. It’s a lovely rich cream, although not heavy, very comfortable to wear and not sticky for overnight. The following morning I checked my skin, it looked more refreshed, smooth and firm, fine lines around my eyes were lessened, the horizontal line above my left eye had gone, my number 11s too. Under my eyes are really smooth and hydrated, eyes look more awake. I shall always use my Silver Bee Venom Mask as an overnight treatment a couple of times a week, but it can be used as a mask for just 15 minutes then rinsed off with cool water. Or use it as a moisturiser/primer under your makeup too. I haven’t tried it under my make up yet, I shall try that later on today, then come back with an update later.

There is one thing that I love about Heaven products, you can actually buy trial sizes before you commit to buy the full sized product, 5ml of product is just £7.50 and because it contains bee venom check first that you aren’t allergic. See Heaven Skincare HERE  for the Silver Bee Venom Mask.

See you next week for another Face Mask Friday!
