I spent my weekend with Guerlain to find more surprises from them and it was a get together for a few of their consumers. From this get together, I learned about Guerlain Abeille Royale skin care range as well as Guerlain Christmas 2014 Makeup Collection, Un Soir A L’Opera.
For this occasion, Guerlain had flew in their International Makeup Artist, Jose Luis Yuve who it’s his first time in Malaysia and our Malaysia Guerlain Trainer, Adrian Sin. Jose Luis Yuve was borned in Uruguay, who studied sculpture and his shifted his passion over to makeup in his earlier years. The session begun by Adrian Sin whereby to showcase Guerlain Abeille Royale skincare range.
Before I go into the skincare, let’s have a brief idea about Guerlain Abeille Royale skincare from the video above. During this session, we are encourage to experience the difference and benefit of the skincare. I was skeptical as I have just recovered from laser treatment that was done a week before.

‘Bee products are some of the world’s most effective natural healing substances. Guerlain Research has extracted their active power to create Abeille Royale: a skincare programme with Pure Royal Concentrate that stimulates the key mechanisms in the healing process within the skin* to continuously help to repair wrinkles and loss of tissue firmness (*In vitro test).’
‘Derived from the exceptional repairing power of bee products, this toner prepares the skin to optimise the wrinkle-correcting and firming action of Abeille Royale skincare. The skin seems stimulated from within: reshaped and smoothed, it glows with youthfulness. Its fresh and creamy texture delivers plumping softness to the skin.
According to Instrumental tests: wrinkles and fine lines smoothed from the very first month.
Women are convinced*:
- For 94% of them, the toner leaves the skin softer
- For 91% of them, the toner leaves the skin suppler
*Satisfaction test, 32 women, results after 1 month’s twice-daily use’
A very light and refreshing toner that helps to balance skin moisture. Of course, there is a hint of honey scent to it and this is to apply over cleansed skin with facial cotton. For an extra boost, this toner can be applied on it’s own by warming it in between palms and pat it over the skin.
*tips – always warm the product for it to melt for better absorbency and effectiveness.
‘Derived from the exceptional repairing power of bee products, this eye care helps to repair visible signs of ageing and fatigue in the eye area. It smoothes wrinkles and fine lines, and lifts and firms the eye contour. Combatting puffiness and dark circles, it illuminates areas of shadow. The eyes appear visibly younger, as if lifted.
Lifting effect: 91%*
- On the upper eyelid: anti-slackening action: 88%*
- On the eye contour: firmed contour: 84%, smoothed contour: 88%*
- On the lower eyelid: dark circles fade away: 75%, decongesting effect: 84%, more rested eyes: 88%*
*Satisfaction test, 32 women, 1 month after twice-daily application’
This eye cream can also be applied over the makeup for quick fatigue relief. Even with eye cream, we do need to warm up the product in between fingers before applying them. To use this eye cream, Adrian recommend to gently pat the product in from outer corner of the eyes towards inside then over the eye lid. Repeat the steps until the eye cream is fully absorbed into your skin.
‘Born from the exceptional repairing power of bee products, the cooling treatment oil, a concentrated elixir of specific honeys, instantly promotes firmness when massaged into the skin. The skin is invigorated, toned and perfectly sculpted.’
There is a misconception over oil based products. Though I have oily skin, there are times I love face oil treatment like this as they are nourishing and provide so much more nutrition for the skin to glow and increases skin radiance. This oil has a sweet scent of honey and the texture is light and runny. To apply this, Adrian shared a specific application to enjoy the benefit of this oil.
- With both palms, warm the product and place your palm over the face. Gently cover your skin with the oil.
- Place your fist over your cheek and move it upwards with firm circular motion. This motion helps to stimulate the muscles to improve skin firmness.
- Using the bottom of the palm, start from the chin and work your way towards the ear. Then at the sides of the nose towards the ear. This motion helps to tighten skin.
‘Bees produce some of the world’s most effective natural healing substances. Guerlain has extracted the exceptional repairing* power of bee products to create this gel-textured honey mask which leaves the skin plumped up and exceptionally smooth right from the first application. Skin recovers its density and appears more nourished after each application.
*In vitro tests on ingredients
Instantly bluffing results:
The skin is moisturized*: 6h, +24%
The skin is smooth**: -15% of wrinkles
* Measure of the instantly moisturizing
** Measure of the instantly smooth effect
Women note extraordinary results on their skin’s quality just after the first use and after 1 month ***:’
We were told to apply a thick layer of this mask, my skin would be more than just happy as they are in recovery stage and thirst for more moisture. I applied this mask twice and my skin absorbed them so quickly as though I did not apply anything over my skin. It doesn’t feel sticky or oily at all. Some may experience tingling sensation as the product is working it’s way deep into your skin. I like this mask very much especially when it has been kind to my sensitive skin and no oily residue.
Isn’t this something new to learn from just Guerlain skin care? I will continue on Guerlain Christmas 2014 Makeup Collection, Un Soir A L’Opera in my next post as there is much more to learn from Jose Luis. He is informative, charming, funny and approachable. Remember to check over my next post!
