Make your skin look younger in a flash!? The Rodial Bee Venom Micro-Sting Patches are supposed to instantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making your skin look at its best during special occasions like the coming holidays. I’m going to put this product to the test and see if it really works in this post.
The Rodial Bee Venom Micro-Sting Patches comes in a sealed sachet that includes two patches. They can also come in a box that contains four sachets. The patches are described as anti-aging masks that contain pure Hyaluronic Acid and Bee Venom. It is therefore not suitable for someone who is allergic to bee stings and if you’re not sure you have any allergies to bee stings, a patch test is highly recommended before using this product.
A closeup of the Rodial Bee Venom Micro-Sting Patches shows the 350 micro-stings structure that self dissolves to directly target the specific areas with the ingredients. Hyaluronic Acid plumps out lines by boosting moisture retention in the skin while Melittin Peptide Bee Venom plumps and firms wrinkle appearance.
To use the Rodial Bee Venom Micro-Sting Patches, remove the protective film (the white part) from the patch and position carefully. Apply to the desired area on cleansed skin and firmly press. Then, remove the plastic sheet and leave on for 30 minutes for a quick fix or 60 minutes for better results and peel of gently. You can use the patches on any areas where you have fine lines or wrinkles. There are some recommended areas of application on the packaging itself like for Crows Feet and Smile Lines.
My problem area is my forehead. I have two large forehead creases on the top, which I really dislike and often remove with photoshop in pictures. Foundation tends to heap up in these areas and a pore-filling primer also doesn’t help since the creases are too deep and move when I use facial expressions.
The patch isn’t long enough to cover the whole length of my forehead creases but it is wide enough to cover a part of both of them. I pressed the patch firmly on my skin like instructed. It doesn’t hurt but I can definitely feel the micro-stings structure. It’s like pressing a softer version of Velcro (in Dutch: Klittenband) on my skin. The outer part is sticky like a plaster so the patch stays on well. During the waiting period, I can feel some tingling sensation on the applied area but it didn’t feel uncomfortable at all.
I removed the patch after one hour, which didn’t hurt. This is how my skin looks like immediately after removal. You can see the area where the sticky part was and the structure of the patch imprinted on my skin. My skin looks slightly red but it wasn’t irritated. Through the structure, I could already see that the fine lines of my forehead creases have been reduced.
Here’s a before/after picture using the Rodial Bee Venom Micro-Sting Patch. I waited a few minutes until the imprint of the patch itself was gone. I still can see the forehead creases however, they have been heavily reduced, which is what the product promises, reduce the appearance and not make them disappear,
The Rodial Bee Venom Micro-Sting Patches definitely work. The patch has reduced the appearance of the fine lines on my forehead in an hour. It isn’t a long lasting effect though, I noticed that everything was normal again when I woke up the next day. I noticed though that the instructions on the official Rodial website were different than on the pack. There, it said to leave the patch for two, preferably three hours for optimal results, so it might be that the effect will lasts longer. The website also mentions that they can be used 2-3 times per week for lasting results. I find it rather expensive to use these multiple times per week so I personally would use these for special occasions where you want to look your best like on Holidays or Weddings.
