Beauty Roundup: Honey, Honey



Honey is good for many reasons: it’s hydrating and has antibacterial properties (so it’s good for acne-prone skin), it’s full of antioxidants and just makes you glow. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my favorite Glow Balm so I just did (again!). I’ve always loved the little honey-in-a-bear, which of course you can slather on your face for a quick fix or mix with equal parts yogurt and make an effective mask. And then there are the more complex products that utilize the golden elixir.

They really wax poetic about this cleansing cream, but it just looks really silky and effective to me.
Here’s an interesting mask that’s actually a splashy thing that you use in the shower for a little extra Oomph to the skin (kind of like Jean Nate for the face!)
Apparently Osmia’s Lip Repair can heal chapped lips in a day or two.
I am intrigued by this whole line from Guerlain, and the Honey Elixir is supposed to “plump, smooth and revitalize skin” and who doesn’t want a little of that?
This exotic Honey mask  is formulated with Solomon’s Seal powder (whatever that is) which they claim absorbs impurities. Plus it has Korean medicinal herbs in it. Nice.

    Just a head’s up regarding raw, unfiltered honey. I’m highly allergic to bee stings and if I ingest or use raw honey on my face I break out in rather unattractive painful hives. I don’t know if this is true for all people allergic to bees, but it is to this one allergic person.

    Laurie Stern, creator of Velvet & Sweet Pea Purrfumery makes a luscious Honey Organic perfume, that contains bee propolis, honey and beeswax among the other gorgeous ingredients. Sensational!

    “Jean Nate for the face.” 🙂 A perfect turn of phrase that both cracked me up and conveyed exactly what the product is.
