GUERLAIN Abeille Royale Masque & Skin Defense
GUERLAIN HONEY CATAPLASM MASK INSTANT SMOOTHING
Bees produce some of the world’s most effective natural healing substances.
Honey has been used for its healing properties since antiquity. It is still used today in bandages on patients who do not respond well to classic procedures. Guerlain Research, headed by Dr Frédéric Bonté, in partnership with Prof. Desmoulière, professor of physiology in the pharmacy faculty at the University of Limoges in France and a tissue repair specialist, revealed that the healing process and the repairing of wrinkles and loss of firmness involve common mechanisms of tissue reconstruction.
Inspired by this work, Guerlain Research has extracted all of its active power to create Black Bee Repair Technology. Formulated based on pure Ouessant black bee honey and royal jelly exclusive to Guerlain, this complex reactivates the skin’s key mechanisms to repair the visible signs of ageing: contours, wrinkles, firmness, elasticity, tone, density.
Since 2015, Guerlain has been inspired by the latest advances in neuroscience. The most recent Black Bee Repair Technology expands skin’s self-repairing capacity. For the first time, it targets the signs of ageing caused by the nervous system (signs of ageing due to environmental impact/stress on the cutaneous nervous system). Skin can thus repair itself more effectively.
A NEW-GENERATION MASK WITH
A SECOND-SKIN EFFECT
CONCENTRATED IN HONEY FOR SPECTACULAR SMOOTHING RESULTS
With Honey Cataplasm Mask,
Guerlain Research is concentrating
all the power of honey in an expert mask inspired by honey bandages.
This latest-generation mask smoothes the features in just a few minutes with an instant effect, i.e. a 27% reduction in wrinkles in 15 minutes. But that’s not all; thanks to its exceptional concentration in honey, it brightens and lastingly smoothes the facial features.
A unique skincare treatment to offer skin at any time, Honey Cataplasm Mask slips seamlessly into any Guerlain beauty routine. It is a solution perfectly suited to all those looking for smooth skin and an instant glow whatever the occasion, before an important meeting, a first date, an evening out, etc.
A SECOND-SKIN TEXTURE
AT THE CUTTING EDGE OF INNOVATION
To give Honey Cataplasm Mask this kind
of repairing performance, Guerlain
has used a new-generation biocellulose obtained by fermenting a microorganism derived from Kombucha, traditional
Asian fermented tea.
Up to seven times finer than conventional plant biocelluloses* and boasting an unprecedented translucency and lightness, this latest-generation cataplasm mask perfectly hugs the contours and outline of the face, providing extra comfort of use.
This second-skin technology in affinity with the skin’s surface offers skin ideal restorative properties. It is as if skin were imbued with their anti-ageing power.
A REAL HONEY CATAPLASM
FOR AN INSTANT
Honey Cataplasm Mask’s concentrated formula delivers the same amount of honey as using the Double R Serum applied morning and evening for nine days. This generous active ingredient content produces an instant effect on facial features. It unleashes its extraordinary smoothing power in fifteen minutes flat. Instantly unlined, plumped, supple and comfortable, skin recovers a voluptuous feel.
STUNNING RESULTS: A 27% REDUCTION
IN WRINKLES IN UNDER 15 MINUTES
After just one application, skin is literally transformed under the action of the plumping nectar.
In just 15 minutes, wrinkles are significantly smoothed. A 27% reduction in wrinkles has been scientifically proven. Skin is visibly less lined in an instant. Smooth, plump and glowing with youth, it is supple and luminous.
6h after application, the skin’s moisture levels are maintained.
Skin is brighter = + 50 %
The action on the visible signs of ageing increases
with each application of the mask.

THE PLUMPING ROUTINE
Apply the mask morning or evening
to thoroughly cleansed skin.
Leave on for 15 minutes and then massage in any excess product, avoiding the eye contour area.
SKIN DEFENSE CARE
SUN PROTECTION FACTOR 50 – PA++++SKIN PROTECTION
Light pollution, a source
of premature ageing
UVB, UVA, blue light, infrared… Day after day, these four light sources disseminate their oxidative stress, damage collagen and detract from the skin’s youthfulness. Formidable youth stealers, long UVA rays prove especially harmful. They are singlehandedly responsible for 95% of skin damage. Present all year round, even in cloudy weather and whatever the latitude, they penetrate deeply into the dermis, making a severe impact. Combining their detrimental actions on the dermis, these four light sources are behind inflammatory reactions and irreversible damage to collagen and therefore ultimately contribute to wrinkles and a lack of firmness and radiance.
LIMITING LIGHT AGGRESSORS
Guerlain Research has developed SKIN DEFENSE SPF 50 – PA++++, the first Abeille Royale age-defying skincare to protect against four light waves (UVA, UVB, blue light and infrared). Designed for women keen to shield their skin from premature ageing, Skin Defense SPF 50 – PA++++ plays a key role in staying young for longer. As the days go by, this expert formula delivers its remarkable age-defying power to skin: wrinkles are filled in, skin is plumper, firmer and glows with renewed radiance.
A NEW-GENERATION TECHNOLOGICAL SHIELD
At the heart of the formula, Abeille Royale technology deploys a double biological and physical action, offering a protective shield and collagen booster.
THE ULTIMATE SKIN PROTECTION
Its SPF 50 – PA++++ high-protection filter system offers broad UV protection. This multi-defence shield provides protection from UVB rays, as well as short and long UVA rays. The combined action of antioxidants and a mineral filter pigment protects skin from oxidative damage induced by blue light and infrared rays.
COLLAGEN SYNTHESIS CONSTANTLY BOOSTED
Uniting their age-defying power, bee products target the complete biological protective action of collagen, inhibiting its breakdown and reactivating its production*. By regulating cell proliferation and protecting the extracellular matrix, Guerlain exclusive royal jelly and Ouessant honey take concerted action to help to tirelessly boost skin regeneration.
THE ROUTINE FOR YOUNGER-LOOKING SKIN
Use Skin Defense SPF 50 – PA++++
as a final daily skincare step.
It is applied in the morning before make-up
for perfect protection from UV rays for six hours.
It screens UV rays all day long and prevents
the detrimental effects of light sources.
