Just when you thought you’ve seen and heard it all when it comes to beauty products, a new line of skincare products is creating quite a buzz (pun intended) in the beauty industry and is flying off the shelves. The Manuka Doctor creams, which contain more than 10,000 bee stings per pot, were developed in Korea following 12 years of research into the health benefits of the insect’s poisonous sting. Scientists claim the bee venom, helps to prevent ageing by smoothing out wrinkles and stimulating collagen growth and cell renewal, similar to Botox. The use of the insect poison as an anti-ageing treatment is already said to be popular among beauty junkies and youth-seeking celebrities such as Kylie Minogue and Victoria Beckham.

Would you try bee sting cream?

  • I’ve come to realize that just b/c we’re not already doing it, doesn’t mean it’s not legit. For years natural skin care options have been available, but they were hidden by the mass pop culture marketing of European cosmetics. A few pounds of shea butter changed the way we now view what we put on our skin. Who’s to say the same won’t work the bee’s? I mean, look at Burt. LOL. Either way, I would def take a stab at using this treatment as long there were no major side effects. Any free samples available?
