GUERLAIN Abeille Royale Advanced Youth Watery Oil Review

Review of GUERLAIN Abeille Royale Advanced Youth Watery Oil

The GUERLAIN Abeille Royale Advanced Youth Watery Oil needs no introduction, but I think it deserves one. An exciting update on the iconic Youth Watery Oil, the advanced anti-ageing oil is the outcome of over 10 years of research into honey, and it’s skin-renewing and healing properties. Following GUERLAIN’s mission to find the most biodiverse honey, each ingredient in this 95% natural formula has been selected for its nutrient-rich properties, and the result is an incredible anti-ageing serum with untold anti-ageing benefits…


The Most Important Thing About This Oil Is…

Fans of the iconic Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil needn’t worry that their favourite skincare formulation has changed: this advanced formula is just as good as before – it just comes with a new name to reflect just how innovative it is.

I mean, just look at these stats:

• It helps skin self-repair x9 faster
• It boosts skin hydration by up to 125%
• 100% of beauty lovers said their skin felt smoother, plumper and looked more radiant after just one use

But despite the word ‘oil’ featuring in the name, the award-winning Advanced Youth Watery Oil doesn’t feel like a traditional oil; it has the richness and deep hydration you’d associate with normal oils but the freshness and skincare benefits of a serum. As soon as you apply the Watery Oil, hydrating microbeads burst onto the skin; the formula disperses over the complexion and absorbs almost instantly, leaving your skin fresh, soft and bouncy to touch – all without any residue.


What Skin Type Is It For?

The Advanced Youth Watery Oil is suitable for all skin types, especially those experiencing signs of ageing, like a lack of radiance, hydration and plumpness.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re a fan of GUERLAIN’s iconic Abeille Royal skincare collection or you’re looking for a refreshing anti-ageing formula that adds luminosity and fullness to your skin, you’ll adore the Advanced Youth Watery Oil.


Hero Ingredients:

What makes the GUERLAIN Abeille Royale Advanced Youth Watery Oil so luxurious is its core ingredient: honey. Renowned for it’s skin-repairing benefits, the wonder ingredient has been thoroughly researched by GUERLAIN in order for them to utilise the finest honey available – all of which is packed with skincare benefits, of course.

The Dynamic Blackbee Repair Technology is made of four types of honey sourced from all around the world, with each possessing a unique skincare benefit – including repairing, radiance-boosting and plumping properties. GUERLAIN’s classic Ouessant black bee honey from Brittany, which is rich in polyphenols and featured throughout their Abeille Royale range, sits alongside Corsican honey, Ikaria honey and Åland honey, prized for its abundance of amino acids. And, finally GUERLAIN add their exclusive Royal Jelly produced by the unique species, Black Bee, into the mix to protect your skin against the effects of stress and pollution.


What Does It Feel Like?

Unlike traditional oils, the formula feels fresh and not at all greasy; the oil itself is silky and light.


What Does It Smell Like?

The Advanced Youth Watery Oil has a deliciously honeyed scent with a distinct brightness that makes the experience extremely refreshing.


How Do You Use The Product?

Use the GUERLAIN Abeille Royale Advanced Youth Watery Oil on the face and neck in the morning and evening, ideally before the Double R Renew & Repair Serum or the cream. You use the formula in three steps: first, you shake the bottle to mix the microbeads. Then, dispense 2-3 drops using the pipette and warm it in the palm of your hands. Finally, using the palm of your hand, pat into the skin, moving outwards.


What’s Special About The Design?

The bottle has had a slight update from the original but is still almost identical in appearance – and the formula is the same. The iconic hexagonal bottle has been updated so it’s now made with glass to become more sustainable – and, as a result, it feels even more luxurious.



Features 95% natural ingredients.
