REAL TALK FRIDAY
Influencer Bullsh*t ALERT
Beenigma
Touted as the”Most powerful answer to Anti-Aging” What a load of  Sh*t!
First of all, it’s not easy to find the ingredients for this product which is a major red flag. Be very suspicious when a company only tells you the “key ingredients, ” and even those are buried in the FAQ. You have to email the company to get the ingredients, which if you know anything about skincare, will piss you off! They are only fully listed on the box.

I ordered this a while ago because of two popular YouTube Influencers, one from Los Angeles who’s name rhymes with “snotty” and the other from Holland(there’s only one famous money hungry Dutch YouTuber) From the moment I opened it I immediately knew the company was lying about it being fragrance-free. I know the smell of Manuka Honey, and this isn’t it! Then there are the ingredients. Remember this is $129

Here are the ingredients in order:
-Water
-Glyceryl Stearate (emulsifying surfactant)
-Cetyl Alcohol ( many uses, assuming as a viscosity enhancer)
-Stearyl Alcohol (emulsifier and surfactant etc)
-Stearic Acid (Emulsifier)
-Shea Butter (Emollient)
-Glycerine (Humectant)
-Ceteareth 20 (solubilizing agent)
-Decyl Oleate (Lubricant, film forming agent, emollient)
-Dimethicone (Silicone Polymer)
-Triethanolamine (surfactant and pH adjuster) ☠️
-Propylene Glycol (Skin Conditioning, humectant, solvent)
-Diazolidinyl Urea(antimicrobial preservative that is a proven formaldehyde releaser)☠️
And for the last three which are at the lowest concentration and what you’re allegedly paying for are:
-Manuka honey
-Sweet almond oil
-Bee Venom
If I were the owner of Beenigma, I’d want these ingredients to be hard AF to find too. Why? Because they’re practically robbing you of your money! You can get a less inferior however still disappointing product from Manuka Doctor for $19.95(Currently on sale, for a good reason) In conclusion Beenigma is a $129 jar of emulsifying agents, viscosity enhancers, emollients and a minute amount of what should be in the jar. There are plenty of options for products including the every increasingly popular bee venom. One such product is listed below
