Abeille Royale: Repair from science and the bee. With over 10 years of research, Guerlain has scientifically proven the effectiveness of bee products in boosting the skin's revitalization mechanisms.

Mattifying Day Cream - Firms, Smoothes, Corrects imperfections
The skin acts as a sensory interface with the outside world. Environmental factors and stress have a negative impact on the skin’s youthfulness, disrupting skin cell function, including cutaneous nerve cells. This is known as cutaneous “neuro-ageing”. Signs of ageing appear more quickly. Inspired by the latest discoveries in neuroscience, BlackBee Repair technology expands the skin’s self-regeneration capacity for more comprehensive efficacy on the visible signs of ageing. It is incorporated for the first time into the Abeille Royale range of creams for smoother, firmer and more radiant skin.
The Mattifying Day Cream is enriched with a sebo-regulating propolis complex* that helps keep the skin in balance and prevent slackening of the pores. It corrects visible signs of ageing and imperfections simultaneously.
