Guerlain Abeille Royale Youth Serum ($141.00)
I believe the best way the test out a line is to try their serum. Serum usually has the most amount of the ingredient that the line is based on so if the serum doesn't really do magic for your skin, the moisturizer with the same ingredient prob won't do much for you either.
What I love the most is the smell of this serum. I wish they would come out with a body lotion of this scent. It's sweet, but not overpowering. The texture is like any other serum on the market, more on the creamy side than liquid.
From the website it says- "Abeille Royale, the new anti-aging Youth Serum, employs the active power of bee products to repair wrinkles while lifting and firming skin. "
Unfortunately, when compared to other luxury products on the market, this one didn't cut it. I didn't see any difference in my skin and in fact I saw how my skin got worse when I switched from La Mer's Regenerating Serum to this and when I switched back to Regenerating Serum, I saw a difference immediately.
I would say skip it! If you love the scent as much as I do, i would say buy their toner. It has the same scent and the texture is almost like a serum. It's a great toner (they call it "lotion" in the line). I'll write a review on that sometime.
Guerlain Abeille Royale Youth Serum is $141.00
