Every so often, a few ingredients will come into the skin care industry that take the world by surprise. Bee venom has definitely been one of those ingredients. While the idea of putting bee venom on your skin might seem dangerous and intimidating at first, there are actually some surprising benefits to be had by using bee products. Today we’re going to be diving into this category of ingredients by looking specifically at the brand Venofye. In this Venofye review, we’ll cover the brand’s background, best selling products, key ingredients, Venofye reviews from real customers, an alternative for you to consider, and more!

What are the Best Skin Care Products of 2020?

The story behind Venofye

Established in 2015, Venofye is a luxury bee venom skin care brand. While bee products have been used in skin care for centuries, bee venom has only recently been introduced to the large-scale skin care market. Since most of the beneficial properties of bee venom center around treating fine lines and wrinkles, most of the products in the Venofye range are designed for those who are concerned with anti-aging. 

What are the best selling Venofye products?

Venofye offers several different skin care and body care ranges that target specific skin concerns. Their central line, Queen Bee, includes everything from cleansers and moisturizers to more unique treatments and serums. Of this range, the best selling Venofye products are the Queen Bee Facial Peeling and the Queen Bee Day Moisturizer. 

The Queen Bee Facial Peel is designed to be a gentle yet effective exfoliating mask that helps to remove dead skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter looking skin. This product can be used two to three times a week for regular exfoliation and contains no harsh scrubs or manual exfoliants that can cause micro tears on your skin. 

The Queen Bee Day Moisturizer serves as a daily moisturizer that hydrates and nourishes the skin without feeling heavy or sticky. As a daytime moisturizer, this product was designed to work well under sun protection and makeup so you won’t experience any bunching or pilling.

In addition to the Queen Bee line, Venofye also has a number of offshoots that serve more specific skin care concerns. This includes the Drone Bee line, which was designed with men in mind, the Royal collection, the Orchard Line, Apitoxin, Viperlift, and more. Each of these collections feature a specific key ingredient, such as bee venom, snake venom, propolis extract, royal jelly and more.

What are the key ingredients in Venofye skin care products?

As we’ve already alluded to, bee venom (also known as apitoxin) is one of the key ingredients in Venofye skin care products. Studies show that the use of this ingredient may help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is theorized that the topical bee venom can potentially trigger an increase in the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Collagen is the protein that gives skin strength and firmness, while elastin is the protein that allows skin to “bounce back” after moving or stretching. 

Bee venom also helps to increase blood circulation thanks to the enzyme hyaluronidase, which actively dilates the capillaries and increases blood flow. Another major component of bee venom is melittin, a peptide consisting of 26 amino acids. Melittin helps to plump and firm the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother, younger looking complexion. 

Another venom used in Venofye skin care products is SYN-AKE (diaminobutyroyl benzylamide diacetate), a synthetic peptide complex that mimics the effects of the peptide Waglerin 1. Waglerin 1 is a component of the venom found in the Temple Viper, a poisonous snake native to southeast Asia. SYN-AKE peptide complex works by reducing muscular contractions in the face and reduces cell movement; thereby keeping the skin smooth. This snake venom peptide is the key ingredient in the Venofye ViperLift Collection. 

Where are Venofye skin care products sold?

Venofye skin care products are sold on the brand’s website, as well as third party sellers like Amazon and eBay. Due to the high cost of Venofye skin care products, it may be a good idea to avoid third party sellers, as there is great incentive for unscrupulous individuals to create counterfeit versions of these products.

What is the Venofye return policy?

Venofye does not allow you to return a product for a refund at this time. However, for all authorized online purchases, Venofye offers a Manufacturer Warranty – if you are not satisfied with your product purchased online venofye.com offers a 100% Manufacturer Satisfaction Guarantee and will permit an exchange of the purchased product for any alternative Venofye product of equal or lesser value. The exchange must be made within 30 days of purchase. 

Is Venofye cruelty free?

One of the main questions you may have when it comes to Venofye skin care products is likely: Is Venofye cruelty free? Fortunately, Venofye is cruelty free and  is 100% animal-friendly. None of the bees are hurt during the bee venom extraction process. If you’ve ever been stung by a bee, you know that the bee loses its stinger, which ultimately results in its death. But according to Venofye, collecting bee venom is neither stressful for the bees, nor is it harmful. Bee venom is usually collected using a glass sheet which encourages the bees to pump out a small amount of venom into the glass. This sheet is then removed from the beehive and the venom is sent for purification. The bee continues with its normal life because stinging the glass doesn’t force it to lose its stinger.

Venofye reviews

Venofye reviews on the brand’s website are overall pretty positive, with most products receiving 4 and 5 star ratings. Since Venofye skin care products are almost exclusively available through the brand’s website, there is only a select few reviews available for a handful of products. Currently, the most reviewed product from Venofye is the Queen Bee Day Moisturizer with 32 reviews and an overall rating of 5 out of 5 stars. Reviewers said that this product helped to smooth their skin and deliver that instant glow, while also helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Most Venofye reviews for this moisturizer also said that it was rich and creamy without feeling too heavy or leaving a film on the skin.

What are some alternatives to Venofye?

While Venofye is certainly one of the more unique skin care brands we’ve reviewed, we understand that you may not be interested in putting bee venom on your skin (or dishing out several hundred to several thousand dollars for a single skin care product!) That’s why we’d like to recommend a few alternatives for you to consider. 

If you’re interested in the benefits of the SYN-AKE peptide complex that we discussed above, you may want to try Formulyst’s Anti-Wrinkle Peptide Serum. This serum combines the SYN-AKE peptide complex with five additional rejuvenating peptides into one formula. All of these peptides have a unique mechanism of action, and they work together to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The peptides in this formula are combined in a base of several potent hydrating ingredients, including glycerin, Chondrus Crispus extract, and sodium hyaluronate. Ultimately, Formulyst Anti-Wrinkle Peptide Serum can help to promote skin that looks and feels smoother, stronger, and more youthful.

Another peptide serum that we recommend is Formulyst’s Pro Collagen Serum. This lightweight serum includes two unique peptides: tripeptide-10 citrulline and tripeptide-1. Tripeptide-10 citrulline mimics the protein decorin, which plays a role in the regulation of collagen fibers. Tripeptide-1 is a signal peptide known to work with copper in skin to visibly repair substances that have begun to deteriorate due to age and sun exposure. Thanks to these two peptides, the Formulyst Pro-Collagen Serum may help to stimulate new collagen production, resulting in a more youthful complexion.

Venofye Viperlift Bio Syringe Review

Venofye ViperLift Bio Syringe is an anti-aging serum that comes in a syringe in order to deliver the serum directly to wrinkles. The combination of sodium silicate and sodium polystyrene sulfonate in this serum will instantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, however, this effect is purely cosmetic and provides no long-term benefit. Another ingredient that will provide anti-aging effects is dimethylaminoethanol tartrate (DMAE), which is an analog of the B vitamin choline and is a precursor of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. DMAE works by helping the underlying facial muscles to contract, thus tightening the skin and increasing skin firmness. However, research has shown that these results are short-lived and eventually give way to destruction of the substances in skin that help keep it firm. One anti-aging ingredient in the Venofye ViperLift Bio Syringe that actually does provide lasting effects is acetyl hexapeptide-8, also known as argireline. Acetyl hexapeptide-8 is a six amino acid peptide and is a fragment of SNAP-25 (a substrate of botulinum toxin). It works by limiting the ability of neurotransmitters to activate movement in your facial muscles, for example, when forming facial expressions such as smiling or frowning. By inhibiting the nerves that cause facial muscles to contract, subtle facial expressions are limited and wrinkles are subsequently reduced. There are several more beneficial ingredients in the Venofye ViperLift Bio Syringe, including cucumber fruit extract, hyaluronic acid, retinyl palmitate, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E ester), and avocado oil.

    Ha…I know that routine there on the strip in Lahaina…did you try and turn the cylinder on the syringe to open and close the valve that releases the serum out of the tip? That’s where I got mine, but it is working out good for me.

    I absolutely love these products. I was hailed by a rep in Mexico, he tried the syringe on me and my daughter screeched in amazement!. I bought a package very reasonably priced compared to the website and use the products religiously. I’m still amazed at the results. In Antigua i came across a storefront of theirs and purchased from them a similar line of their products as I was out of the others….(used sparingly they really last) and I remain sooo happy with their products.

    I started using the Venofye line about six weeks ago. Like many others I was flagged down by a sales rep in the mall. The first week my skin looked great. Then I started to notice my skin was getting dry and itching. Now my face feels like it’s always burning. I’ve stopped using the product, but don’t know what to do to stop this burning. I welcome any suggestions. I so mad to have wasted hard earned money on such a proper product. I will never recommend this product to anyone.

    I bought the Skintight Beehive Syringe for $150 after being hailed down by a guy in Lahaina, Maui. I have used it 2x & can’t get the serum to pump out of the bottle. What a waste!

    I absolutely love the Queen Bee day moisturizer and the facial peel. I get a lot of compliments. My mom uses the skin syringe and she feels it was worth it, but we did not buy full price in the site, as we bought ours in Mexico.

    Was mall-walking and this man hailed me and started out by giving me this packet of day moisturizer. I haven’t used it, but he went on and on and on about his stuff. I let him put some of the under-eye stuff on and, yes, it looked better, but when I took it off, it seemed to be something that dried fairly hard and simply covered up the dark circles. I don’t know if this stuff would work, but given that it has bee venom and I’ve had reactions to bees and wasps, I think I’ll save my thousands of $$$ and find something else.

    I used the Venofye every week without fail as they told me to. The product was the under eye `lift’ to get rid of bags and dark circles. They call it the non surgical eye lift. So after a year, not missing any `treatments’ I can tell you, it does not work in the least. In fact, my bags are worse. This product is basically an 8 hour temporary lift with some good cover up. So basicaly it’s cosmetic for about 10 hours. The problem is, you can only use once a week, so inbetween your eyes have bad bags and dark circles. Don’t buy this product!

    This stuff is crap. I got suckered into buying this in Alameda, CA. They put it on and it appears to be doing something. As the day goes on the skin under my eye was getting tighter and tighter. I couldn’t wait to go home and wash it off. Since then I have used the day moisturizer and serum after applying I start to feel really sick. I have done this a few times just to make sure. I for some reason bought the package of all of this. Now I can’t use any of it. No wonder they don’t do refunds as most people who want to return it. If you see these people any where run as fast as you can from them. They are snake oil sellers. They make promises they can’t keep. The woman I dealt with said she would call me to see if I had questions since she never bothered to call me I called the number she gave me and guess what it wasn’t the correct number. Crap and I wasted alot of money. I didn’t care if it worked but it doesn’t at all.
