Albolene® offers a Beta Carotene cream formula designed for moisturizing. Albolene® is also advertised to fight wrinkles. However, Albolene® has received a number of low or below-average scores on many consumer reports tests. Albolene seems to be safe and affordable. However, it is suggested that this isn’t the most high quality product available. At the time of this review, Albolene® was retailing at about $13.00 per jar, making it fairly reasonable.

Beenigma - Premium All-In-One Bee Venom Face Cream
We are so pleased to bring this formula to you and have found that Beenigma is the premium choice among Bee Venom face creams in the entire world. New Zealand, where the premium Beenigma face cream is manufactured - is located in the South Pacific at the bottom of the world. There are very few places on earth offering such unspoiled wilderness and purity in flora and fauna. It is this purity and beauty that inspires the very core of the Beenigma cream.

Angelique: Before buying Albolene I had heard good things about it, that it was good for sensitive skin and could do a decent job of removing makeup. I was not exactly thrilled with it though, I thought it still left a filmy layer on my face and this resulted in several nasty breakouts a few days after I began using it. Don’t know what all the buzz is about, it’s not really that good.

billie: Albolene is super cheesy! I get that it’s supposed to be like your mothers all in one beauty cream/cleanser but it just feels greasy, oily, cheap and gross. with so many better products available, I am not sure why I bothered and thought I’d be a good online “friend” and tell you all to save your selves the trouble. happy beauty battles to you all!

sarajane: I tried the Albolene weight loss challenge & i was so excited about it…they said it worked really well. But it turned out to just be a diuretic, it didn’t lead to any lasting weight loss whatsoever. Disappointing.

Trudi: Albolene is disgusting, it has the consistency of Vaseline! I didn’t know this about it prior to purchasing, it was a bit of a shock to feel this in my hands and have to speread it all over my face. So it was sorta hard to wash off, not what I expected from a cleanser. Wouln’t recommend.

Kirsten: Albolene was…just…boring. The things about using it on your lips is pretty good, but what I really want is a lip venom like plumping gloss. As for a moisturizer, Albolene is below average.

Roshann: When I put Albolene on my lips, they do look shiny & luscious, has anyone tried to “intensify” their cleavage with this? I wonder if it works, seems like a strange suggestion, but hey, you never know…

NancyJ: YES, SO BAD!!! It was obvious that I was NOT going to use Albolene on my face so instead I tried it on my legs for “gleaming gams”. It was like using crisco! It stained by skirt and dribbled into my new shoes. This stuff isn’t god for ANYTHING. maybe oiling rusty hinges :)

ChelseeLSmith: I get what y’all are sayin but I liked how thick and rich it is. I use Albolene on my tanned shoulders and sometimes on my legs, that’s how we use it down here. But ohno, we would NEVR use it as a facial cream. I thought everyone knew that…

jessica: Albolene is supposed to “intensify cleavage…” whatever. They make it sound like this stuff can solve every problem in the book!! But in reality it did nothing for my cleavage. Its not bad for removing makeup, but that’s about it.

Dawn: For awhile I had gotten really lazy about washing my makeup off at night, like maybe I would 2 or 3 times a week, but never on the weekends or on those late nights out when I really SHOULD be washing my face. Those were the worst, probably, when I wore extra makeup, sat around smokey bars and would just go home and crash. Not good for the skin. Anyway, I read about Albolene and how good it was at getting the makeup off, and so I thougth maybe it was time to take better care of my skin. I was a little surprised when it actually turned my whole entire face red! I don’t know why it did that, but I used it for 3 days in a row, same thing happened, just a bright red face. I really should still find something to cleanse my skin, but this is not it.

honesttoblog: I thought Albolene would be a little like Noxema, minty and refreshing, like summer camp and slumber parties. Instead it was very heavy, did not absorb into my skin and left buildup that I could scratch with my fimgernails. smell is a bit funny also, can’t quite name it. like spoiled cheese and cat pee.

Cecilia: Eww, that’s gross, I had wondered about the Albolene suggestions for putting it on ur legs. I’ll just keep using it as a makeup remover, thx. Anyone know of a good moisturizer?

LisbethMcCarthy: Dawn, sorry to hear that! I too am so guilty of not removing my makeup at night, especially if I have been out late. and that;s usually when you need to the most. I tried different products like Ponds cloths and Yes to Carrots from the Rite Aid and I found Albolene to be on par with those types of things, maybe a little worse. I never had a real bad reaction like you did but I did break out more than usual. it was extra annoying because here I was doing what my mother always told me was her beauty secret (that and plenty of sleep and a slow gin fizz every now ad then) and I looked worse for it! what a bummer!

Tara: Has anybody tried Albolene for their lips? Bcs its supposed to also be good for lips but I didn’t notice any difference.

Florence: Well, I don’t mind Albolene so much for my face, but make sure you don’t get it in your eyes, it kinda stings. I was surprised, its supposed to be so good for mascara but you really gotta be careful.

kay: that depends, when I was younger I could use anything on my face. These days I want something I can wear under makeup for day and a product that will give me coverage at night. So far I have yet to find The One Thing that Does It All but I do know that Collagen is a good ingredient for mature skin. now that I’m a “woman of a certain age” I suppose I have to know these things. I can’t believe I used to complain about getting whistled at and flirted with. I’d kill for that attention now. p.s. Albolene is good for polishing your flatware, nothing more in my experience!

Charlotte: I agree with many of you, Albolene is primarily just a makeup remover altho it did cause some oiliness. My skin didn’t seem particularly improved when i used this and the smell was unpleasant to me, even though they promote it as being a “fragrance” too. I think they obviously are trying very hard to sell this stuff so they are marketing it as being the holy grail of everything. It’s just a makeup remover, tops.

Joan: here’s my tip of the day: put some Albolene on your mascara brush – it makes your lashes all dewy! I wouldn’t really use it on my face again I am just glad I found an alternative use…

beauty_queen994: Okay well I have used Albolene for taking my makeup off, and I liked it for a little while but it is sorta too greasy. So but before I stopped using it I also took the Weihgt Loss Challenge, I mean, who doesnt wanna lose a few pounds, tone up, whatever. Well you know, you gotta apply Albolene to those “trouble spots” and it totally made me break out when I was sweaty! And it was a bitch to clean off. Very messy stuff. I don;t use it anymore, but i was more motivated to search for a weight loss program. Jillian Michaels is a good one, lost 8 lbs so far, still looking for a good, light moisturizing cleanser.

Ashlynn: eww!!! my grandmay gave me Albolene to use when I stayed the night at her house and it made my face smell like an old lady!!! I must be really bored today to write about this! :)

Patrice: What IS that smell in Albolene??? I can’t place it…

miranda: Albolene has the texture and consistency of Vaseline, and i found that after i washed with it, it left my face red. i dont understnad how that happened but i looked it up and i saw that one of the ingredients Cesarin, is known to be an irritant for some skin types. This is not for me.

5thfloorgir: I washed my face with Albolene and then applied my makeup. I guess it makes sense now that I see it is also a makeup remover but my whole face just looked wet and runny by about 10 o’clock.

Ms Terry: Havent had any problems wiht Albolene for removing makeup, but I have heard that it promotes hair growth if you use it as a leave-on moisturizer. So make sure you wash it right off!!

Dina: I don’t want to be too mean because as some of you have mentioned this really reminds me of products my mother and her sisters used to use. I really loved watching them “do their faces” at night, joking and singing along to the radio. I don’t really use the Albolene I bought (because it just doesn’t compare to more sophisticated creams available) but sometimes I open the lid and give it a sniff, for nostalgia. Okay, now you think I’m a crazy girl!

Francesca: Thanks for all of the tips, this is sucha great site. I wanted to know how to use it up bcs I have a huge tub of Albolene that I don’t want to use on my face, gotta rid of it somehow.

Sheryl: Albolene is supposed to give a “younger looking complexion” which i was really hoping for bcs since i turned 44, I’ve been starting to look rather weathered. I was excited bcs Albolene is also supposed to help with firming and toning. So i figured i would be helping my face AND body. Well, this didn’t turn out to be the case. It didn’t really work for anything, although I will grant that it did remove my makeup. But with enough water and scrubbing, won’t ANYTHING kind of remove makeup eventually? I think i need a powerful anti aging product with something like Matrixyl in it.

Faith: So Albolene totally did nothing to firm up my “problem areas” of cellulite like they say it will. can anybody recommend a good cellulite cream that WORKS??

Violet: Don’t hate on Albolene. it’s just for older ladies. don’t wear it outside in the summer at night, b/c it does attract mosquitos.

Sophie: So it DOES take awhile to wash my face wiht Albolene, I only use it a couple of times a week, and have stopped wearing makeup daily bcs I just don’t have the energy to wash it off with this. But, it has been getting my face really clean, once I get it all off.

ARIES412: Oh I can’t believe I’m actually gonna say this, but Albolene is actually worse than Cetaphil was!! My face felt sticky and irritated with this, not cleansed, and yeah as others have mentioned, it does not work at all for anti-aging. Whatever. This stuff is HORRIBLE!!

Gail: Hmm, I have yet to find a cream that really tones my skin and works on cellulite. I just keep trying to work out and drink water. Also don’t eat anything fried. or cottage cheese. it makes sense because cellulite looks like cottage cheese so I just gave it up! Anyway I used Albolene for a while because it was supposed to be an all in one. I tried applying it to my bust but so far I’m still a small B. I use it to remove makeup but not any more as a cleanser. I really don’t know what to do about my face. maybe a face lift?

Audrey: Well….I’m an older lady, and while i think Albolene is fine, I would rather have something a bit more powerful for my wrinkles. This might be “old fashioned” or “old school,” as they say, but it’s not necessarily the best for old skin. In my opinion. I may be 58, but I do embrace change and progress, and i would rather have a more advanced wrinkle cream.

Dee: I would use Albolene to take my make up off and then wash with Dove soap and then use oil of Olay before bed. It has to be washed off.

Deb: Albolene DOES work well on my lips, I think bcs it has Vaseline in it, or something similar. It helps get the lipstick off (I wear bright colors usually) and I also put it on my lips at night, it keeps them soft. Only put it on my face once, that was enough to know that, I’ll just use it on my lips.

Cathie: Albolene doesn’t seem like it is useful for most of the purposes its advertised for. How can they say it does all of that stuff when it doesn’t? I don’t really understand that. I will finish it off for makeup removal, but when it’s done, i’m done with it. Can somebody tell me what the best anti wrinkle cream is? THANKS!

ASLewis: last month on a trip my luggage was lost and I was forced to buy products from the drug store, which I haven’t done since college. I thought Albolene seemed sort of quaint but it ended up giving me a rash. shouldn’t have surprised me. I’m never traveling to Texas again!

TOPEKA: So I do appreciate that I can always find Albolene, and it is a very affordbale product, esp for a makeup remover. I find that it works well to erase my “eyebrows” so that I can pencil them back on evenly the next morning. I don’t use it anywhere else though bcs it is so thick, I would like to find something that can safely be used on my entire face.

MissAlice: I don’t know about which is the “best’ for everyone because I am not an expert or an authority. I do try and keep up with trends and then experiment with the products that have staying power. I do like this lotion I recently bought that is made with Hyaluronic Acid. I can’t remember the name but I will try and log in to this net blog and write in with it when I get home from work this afternoon. Good Luck to you all, Yours Sincerely, Alice Greenlaw I used Albolene, YEARS AGO. I didn’t know it was even still on the shelves. terrible stuff indeed!

Glenna: What is the shelf life of Albolene? Mine’s been sitting on the shelf for several years now, I wonder if its still any good.

T_Janowitz: I don’t think I knew that Albolene was an old fashioned “retro” product…the ads made it look like it was something rather advanced. But i guess i should have been clued in by the fact that they claimed it would work for so many different things. Nothing does it all….and usually the products that say they do it all actually do NOTHiNG. Albolene turned out to be one of those.

cardioKelly: I too use Albolene sparingly and it works fine. I keep a little in a baggie in my pocketbook and use it with TP to remove makeup after work if I am going to th gym. It’s handy, cheap and lasts forever. It’s not a miracle cream, but then again what is?

Pearl: I was glad to read the fitness tips that Albolene prescribes. I think I am a little old to take the Albolene challenge but I will continue to use it once in a while on my body just in case. At my age, you are willing to try anything.

Shaun: THe tips posted on the Albolene website are helpful, you know, it is an awfully large tub, so its good to know there are several potential uses for this stuff. I hate to be wasteful, since I only need a little bit to remove my makeup. Oh, but If any of you decide to create your own Albolene scent, make sure its one you like. i tried their mixture (jasmine, gardenia, lime & lavender) and it stayed on my skin for about a week. too strong, hard to wash off.

TEEJ23: I CAN”T BELEEVE ANYONE BUYS THIS STUFF. ALBOLENE IS DUSGUSTING. I THINK ITS MADE FROM ANIMAL FAT.

Christie: Albolene is not terrible for reducing water retention BUT it doesn’t do anything for cellulite that i know of. For my lips, it did a bit of moisturizing, just a bit, but what i want to know is, what’s a good lip plumper?

Mo: Well I will agree with the Albolene site that the product is not as drying as other cleansers. Some cleansers, and especially soap, just completely dry out my skin and I am left with a flaky mess. Albolene doesn’t do that, and I am glad, but it’s still not my favorite all time cleanser. Stilll looking for that.

Joelly: no one seriously uses this stuff anymore?! My girlfriends and I use to klepto Albolene from the market when we were teens so we could remove all the terrible eye shadow and blush we put on to look grownup for school. It was horrible stuff then; I can’t imagine using it now! Find a moisturizer made with Matrixyl. Best thing I’ve found for my long suffering old face!

Dawn: ALBOLENE IS A TOTAL DINOSAUR IT IS EVEN MORE OUTDATED THAN NOXEMA! DONT BOTHER!!

Johnnie: What is Ceresin? Somebody mentioned its in Albolene, I’m wondering if its responsible for the pimples I’ve been getting around the edge of my nose.

MarshiaMendez: in the winter when my skin is REALLY dry and I need a little comfort I take out my old jar of Albolene and use it on my lips, hands and elbows. It’s basically just mineral oil. I think the jar I bought 5 years ago is finally finished…so long Albolene, I think out time is over…

Phalicia: I use Albolene on my cuticles when I do my nails but that’s it. It was to greasy for my face.

Maria: Interesting how Albolene uses the word “Intensify” to describe the cleavage effects it supposedly has. Guess they wouldn’t want to come out and say it INCREASES cleavage, bcs it doesnt. Has ANYBODY noticed a change in their cleavage? ANd can somebody describe to me what an “intensified” bust looks like? Intensified in what way?

Kris: I tried using Albolene on my chest and collarbones. When my husband came home he asked me if I had been running. Not so sexy. That was the first and last time for me and Albolene!

Jann: Ceresin is some kind of wax, and so is Parrafin which is also in Albolene. No wonder its so sticky and unpleasant to use!!

JBJackson: Are you there Albolene, it’s me Julie? I’ll slather this goo on my bust just as soon as I am finished playing Dream Date and listening to my Leslie Gore records. get serious! it is the 21st century! Go get some collagen or botox or saline or whatever floats your boat and call it a day!

Desiree: Since I am a performer (stage) I have been well aware of the benefits of Albolene for quite some time. It was all the talk backstage, between men & women, and we would pass the tub around if we were going to a cast party, or just out in public after a performance. Nobody wants to be seen on the street wearing thick blush, eyeliner, lipstick, etc, it’s not the attention I want anyway. Well I have been with the theater company for most of my adult life, and although Albolene was fine for removing the makeup when I was younger, lately I have found it to be too drying. Maybe my skin has just gotten drier anyway, its hard to say. But I am in need of a stronger wrinkle cream because when the makeup is washed off, I;m left with these deep lines & wrinkles. Albolene has not improved my skin, though I’ve been using it for so long. Don’t believe for a minute it has anti-aging properties, it is no more than a makeup remover, thats all.

Gretta: isn’t Parrafin also quite flammable? Just asking. Albolene is too heavy and stinky for me!

blindfaith77: Hmm I’m starting to understand why I have not been able to get rid of the lines with Albolene, it doesn’t seem to be much good for this after all.

lyonna: yeah i think i must have assumed that Albolene was more powerful than it was in terms of combating wrinkles. it did not do ANYTHING for that. I wanted to have a younger looking complexion but in reality all that happened was my face began to take on a shiny appearance that was quite unattractive. I looked on the website because wanted to understand why this made my skin look so shiny. On there i saw that they suggest u put this on your legs to make them shiny. So i was thinking, how can you shine ur legs with this without it having the same shiny effect on your face? You can’t have it all.

Lena: Wow I am having a really hard time believing anyone actually has used the Albolene for toning, enhancing, whatever. I laughed when I saw those “tips” and thought how silly! The grease doesn’t feel good on my face, why would I want to slather it on my chest arms or legs?? Pointless. They just are making up uses for this product bcs they know women will get sick of putting it on their faces with no results.

therese: my mother’s generation drank and smoked and ate red meat and knew how to get the most out of life. We spend so much time worrying about everything from our kids soccer games to global warning and all the stress is showing up on our faces. I look a fright and I’m only 42. I plan to live a long, long time and continue to be active, busy and the life of the party. I bought Albolene because it was cheap and I had this notion that I needed to simplify. It wasn’t very good, but I don’t want to dwell on that. I want to move on, find a product that works and stop dreading middle age. It’s gonna happen so get over it.

sherri: Yeah i would like to know how ALbolene is supposed to slim your waist AND also increase your bust! I’ll tell you how: it doesn’t do EITHER!!! What a bunch of crap. I don’t so much mind the Albolene, it is what it is, but I DO mind this new marketing of it, it is VERY misleading.

Jesse: Their claims are DESPERATE AND PATHETIC like too many women I know. Albolene is never going to give you back you youth so stop crying.

Grace: USing Albolene as cleanser is okay, just remember, it really must be washed off. I didn’t realize this and after using it as a moisturizer for several weeks, I noticed thicker hairs on my chin!! I was mortified, and learned that it has been known to have this effect! Beware!!

Jen: There sure seems to be alot of complaints about this stuff. but realisticly there is no miracle cream to lose weight. all this stuff said was you would lose weight. and you do. water weight. it makes you sweat alot! and as for a makeup remover, it is a more expensive baby oil. for those of you who do not know this, if you want to remove waterproof makeup, rub baby oil (the gel works best) all over the spots that need to come off, then gently wipe all the oil off with a tissue ( perf the one with lotion so its not to ruff) and then wash your face with a cleanser of choice. i have used this for years. and baby oil no matter where you buy it is very cheap. oh, one more thing, it is said that boxers, or people that are in competitions use albolene to drop weight fast. these people are already very fit. they just want to look “cut up” for competitions. do not get discourged. all weight loss is hard as heck, and takes alot of work and determination. maybe this will help you get started. or if you already go to the gym, put this on your trouble spots and sit in the sauna. you will sweat! and it is refreshing!

RubyRedd: hey, jen, thanks for those excellent tips on waterproofing makeup, somehow i did not know that! Very helpful. Re: Albolene, I think you have a realistic view. It is WATER WEIGHT LOSS which is not gonna make ur fat stop jiggling in that bathing suit. It might make you less bloated temporarily buit i need a lot more than that. I weight 178 lbs and i am only 5′2″ and i need a solution that is gona last. Albolene is clearly just a temporary fix. We all know that now. LOvE THIS BLOG and all the solidarity on it! ! rock on girls!

Steve & Joan: You all don’t understand. This is not a cosmetic item, it’s a sex lubricant and does an incredible job of it! Try it, you’ll like it, I promise. It doesn’t dry out and has just the right feel.

Leah: Ha! That’s funny, Albolene as a sex lubricant! I would never use this on that area of my body!! If its a sexual enhancer your after, get Orexia http://www.orexia.com/free. Makes me climax every time!

Ali: I absolutely love Albolene. I am 25 years old – and have really sensitive skin that easily breaks out. My dermatologist recommended it to me so I gave it a try even though I was worried it would clog my skin. My skin RARELY breaks out now…is perfectly moisturized…my pores are less visible…people make comments about how awesome my skin looks all the time :) My best friend uses it now too and LOVES it. I’m surprised there are so many bad reviews on here, but I do know that different things work for different people. I think its worth trying!!

Rosina: I am 53 and have been using Albolene since I was 19. People are surprised at my age and take me for someone in my late 30’s early 40’s. They always ask me what I use on my face – I tell them I use Albolene. I love it. I use a warm wash cloth to wipe it off in the morning and before bed. I love it.

Patsy: Love it! Have been using it for 40 years, along with Cetaphil. And have a ‘peaches and cream’ complexion; according to my dermatologist.

pat: I have been using Abolene for many years and they have changed the formula . this new garbage is like Vaseline and have discarded 3/4 of a jar .


Albolene®

Albolene® is marketed as a skincare item that relaxes the skin and erases wrinkles by altering facial tissue. Albolene® contains Beta Carotene and is designed to moisturize skin. Albolene® is promoted as being able to produce significant results. We will take a close look at this item and assess how Albolene® measures up to today’s top skincare products.

We believe it is important for people to be educated about what is contained in the skincare products they purchase. Not all skincare products are equal, and in order to avoid disappointment and potential side effects, we feel it is crucial for individuals to become aware of which ingredients make up a high quality skincare product.

 Ingredients at a Glance
We know that Albolene® is said to contain Mineral Oil, Beta Carotene, Petrolatum and Ceresin, but beyond that, we are uncertain of what the remaining ingredients in Albolene® are.

Albolene® may be used both day and night and is recommended for use on cleansed skin. In term of consumer reports, Albolene® has received relatively low scores as a skin-care item. This doesn’t necessarily reflect Albolene®’s potential benefits, so we’ll further evaluate this formula to see what it has to offer.

 Ingredients in Focus
While Albolene® is promoted as a hydrating and moisturizing product, we find very little about the Albolene® formula that is unique or exciting. Albolene® contains Beta Carotene; however, little evidence exists to prove this ingredients abilities, causing us to remain unconvinced of this product’s abilities.

For example, Albolene® lacks the very important Matrixyl 3000®. Matrixyl 3000® is an ingredient that is specially designed to promote Collagen, which keeps skin soft and vibrant. This ingredient works to reduce wrinkles and restore the skin. When searching for a skincare product, we feel it is crucial for people to look for this ingredient.

In addition to Matrixyl 3000®, we believe individuals should also look for Argireline® and Real Collagen. The combination of these ingredients is known make up the core of any highly effective skincare formula. Without these ingredients, Albolene® seems to be an incomplete item that doesn’t offer a well-rounded skincare option.

 Lifestyle
There are so many products of this nature on the market, which can make sifting through them a daunting process. However, with a little knowledge about quality ingredients and a sense of what products provide long-term results, we believe people will be on their way to healthy skincare.

With Albolene®, we have the case of a product that seems to lack background information, which suggests it could be mediocre and ineffective. Usually, top-notch items have been featured in prominent publications and are backed by user testimonials, which Albolene® appears to lack.

 Positives
• Competitively priced at about $13.00
• Contains Beta Carotene
• Easy ordering may be available
• Topical cream


 Negatives
• No refund policy or customer service as of this review
• Do not appear to be featured in prominent publications
• We have concerns about the efficiency of this product
• Doesn’t contain Matrixyl 3000®


 Final Thoughts
Albolene® appears to be a very typical product. It may be acceptable as a moisturizer, but it doesn’t spear to offer significant skincare benefits. People interested in safe, effective skincare may be better off avoiding Albolene® and searching for a product that combines Matrixyl 3000® with Argireline® and other essential ingredients. Also, we believe a fair refund policy is one of the most important things people can look for in a skincare product. It has been our experience that fair refund policies assure a customer’s satisfaction and offers a plan of action in the event of dissatisfaction.

In closing, we tend to side with the consumer reports trend of dismissing Albolene® as an unsatisfactory product. Customers should know that while there are many run-of-the-mill skincare items, there are usually only a few top quality products that truly promote healthy skin. Our best advice is to search for top-notch ingredients and a fair refund policy. Healthy skin is possible with just a little effort on the part of the consumer.
