Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask
Today I will be reviewing the Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask. Those of you who follow me on Instagram would know about 2 new skincare masks from the brand Nip + Fab I posted about 5 months back. Nip + Fab products are now available through Ulta stores as well as through their US based website. So as usual I am a couple of months late with the reviews but nevertheless here it is.
An advanced performance gel mask combining bee venom with 3D express lifting effect technology. Wrinkles appear visibly smoother + skin feels firmer for the appearance of a more lifted facial contour.
Bee Venom: controls the facial muscles, increases blood circulation gently plumping out and firming the skin. Also fills and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
Propolis Extract: this is a resinous substance harvested by bees on flower buds and it is a great skin healer, anti-oxidant and antiseptic
Gransil: spheres scatter incoming rays of light + diminish the reflected light, resulting in a matte look
AC Moisture Plex: helps skin retain moisture and improves moisture balance in the skin
Instensyl: immediate 3D lifting and the skins surface will be immediately smoother. Clinical test showed lifting + smoothing effect within 30 minutes.
Price $15 for 50ml

What I think
Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask comes in an easy to use opaque squeeze tube packaging. This makes it very convenient to travel with. The lid screws in tightly preventing any unexpected leakage. The tube is bright yellow with some purple and silver accents thrown in. Nip+Fab sure knows how to be bold as well as beautiful. The mask is translucent and has a thick gel consistency that spreads on smoothly on the skin. The gel is high on moisture content so it takes up the full 10 minutes as suggested to dry up completely. Initially while applying, the mask feels very cool on the skin – you will experience a slight tingling sensation that disappears in a few seconds. Once the 10 minutes are up, wash it off with warm water as recommended. The mask is quite slippery when it comes in contact with water. Warm water reduces the slimy feel and induces some friction which allows it to be rinsed off effectively. The mask is pure genius on the skin. It plumps and firms the skin really well. If you have any dry patches on the skin, this mask completely gets rid of it and creates a smooth and soft canvas. It also brightens up the complexion spectacularly. I love how my skin looks and feels after using this mask. I don’t have any visible lines on my face to vouch for the wrinkle lifting aspect but going by its plumping and smoothening effect I would definitely say that it would work on aging skin. The fragrance is slightly intense and artificial so many won’t like it but it is not a cause of concern for me. I don’t feel the need for a moisturizer after using this mask. I have used this in summers when my skin is more combination/oily as well as winters when my skin is very dry and it works brilliantly in both cases. I tend to use this mask 2 to 3 times a week and one tube lasts for about 2 months. I am on my third tube now. This mask did not cause any breakouts on my skin in either of the weathers. I think this mask will work well across all skin types. But a patch test is a must since bee venom may cause allergic reactions.
Overall I fell for this mask hook, line and sinker. I absolutely love it. Bee venom is a bizarre ingredient for a face mask but it works great in enhancing your skin. Nip + Fab ships to India for a shipping charge of 20 Pounds!!! So my suggestion would be to buy a couple of their products in one go so that the shipping charge doesn’t pose much of a deal or you could totally gather in a few of your friends and order as a group and chip in the shipping cost. That’s what I did back in India 🙂

I highly recommend this face mask and would repurchase it. It lives upto all its claims – smoothening, softening, hydrating, firming and plumping. It also adds beautiful glow to the face. If you are not allergic to melittin, don’t miss this out.
