Guerlain drops two honey-infused products to repair and restore your skin like no other

Honey trap

Text: Emily Heng

What do bees, bears, and beauty enthusiasts have in common? They all love honey. Hailed as a skin-healing ingredient since Archaic times, the antimicrobial, antioxidant-rich, and soothing nectar have found its way into various beauty treatments and products — and more so this season. It is your one-stop, multi-purpose powerhouse that repairs, moisturises, and protects your complexion in one fell swoop. 


But don't just go grabbing any ol' bottle of honey from Fairprice. According to Dendy Engelman, a dermatologic surgeon, different types of honey have different effect on your skin. Her pick: Manuka Honey. Ours? Guerlain's newly launched Abeille Royale Honey Cataplasm Mask and Skin Defense.

Said to brighten and smooth skin in just 15 minutes, the Guerlain Abeille Royale Honey Cataplasm Mask serves as a quick pick-me-up before important occasions and events. The inclusion of second-skin technology also means that the mask is designed to fit seamlessly over the contours of the face — which means no slippage or adjustments required throughout your masking session. Phew.


The Guerlain Abeille Royale Skin Defense, on the other hand, is for those in it for the long haul. Providing fortification against light sources responsible for 95% of skin damage, it delivers on a plumper, firmer and more radiant complexion than before with sustained use. This can be attributed to its one-of-a-kind royal jelly and Ouessant honey formulation, which tirelessly boosts skin regeneration as well as collagen production.

Available from February at all Guerlain counters, add 'em to your honey hoard, STAT - your skin will thank you for it.
