These days, I'm using the Tony Moly Black Bee Emulsion as my everyday moisturizer. I received this as a gift from Tony Moly Philippines about a month ago, but it wasn't until mid-March that I started to use it.

Propolis - the sticky substance derived from tree resin that bees use to coat the hive - is known for its anti-fungal and anti-bacterial effects on the skin. It's rich in amino acids, bioflavonoids, vitamins, and minerals that help fight free radicals which can damage the skin. Bee venom, on the other hand, is creating a buzz these days in the world of skincare and cosmetics. It's been heralded as an ideal ingredient for skincare as it increases blood circulation, plumps out and firms the skin while filling and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. And then there's hornet extract, which helps relive skin irritation. Many believe that this amino acid-rich insect fluid help improve stamina and physical endurance, thus becoming the main ingredient of a popular sports drink in Japan.
Now here's how the product looks like.
