I highly recommend using a raw, organic Manuka honey with a UMF level of 10-16. Apply as a masque after steaming pores open first, as honey works best in conjunction with moisture. Also try using with a touch of oil, such as jojoba or grapeseed.As most honey comes in a jar, be very careful not to contaminate it, and use a clean spoon each time. No double dipping!If your skin reacts badly and you aren’t allergic to honey, it could be that the UMF level of the honey you are using is too strong for your skin, and you may need to either dilute it or use a honey with a lower UMF level.

This is more first aid than beauty, but mananuka helped me keep a fingertip, so that's pretty beautiful. I hurt my hand, specifically the side of my ring finger. Squeamish, stop here and skip to next p. Avulsion (big flap of skin), lost half a fingernail, deep, deep cut. I didn't get great care in the rural ER, but immediately started doing wet wound care and kept it covered with honey under a nonstick bandaid. It took two months to heal, but I didn't lose the part that had been lifted up. It reattached and sensation is back. The scar is not terrible. I had been so worried that part of my finger would be lost, but I think keeping the honey on it encouraged reconnection in a way that it wouldn't have with a dry scab. Please see a doctor if you are hurt, and follow their recommendations, but if you have access to real wound honey, it seems like an amazing healing agent.

About half a year ago, I tried using almond oil as a moisturizer, which turned out to be a nightmare. My combination skin became full fledged oily. Even the sides of my cheeks, which were dry, became oily. My forehead erupted in painful, swollen cystic pimples which never seems to end. Out of desperation, I bought a jar of manuka honey umf5. I applied it as a mask for the first week or so. The oiliness was reduced very significantly , especially on my cheeks. The second week, I applied like a moisturizer. I misted my face with water, then used a smidgen (just a smidgen!), and rubbed it all over my face. Yes,it will dry with a little bit of stickiness. If your hair sticks to your face, that's too much. It helped to reduce the number of new pimples I get, and they also deflate and form heads much faster. I live in a humid country, so I guess I dont have the issue of the honey sucking water from my skin instead of from the environment.I'm still trying ways to stop my forehead from mimicking an active volcano, but manuka honey does help with it, though it doesn't completely solve my problem. I will try mixing oatmeal in next, hopefully it gives better results.

I'm never going back to regular cleansers!! I have acne-prone skin,mostly in the T-zone along with some scarring on my cheeks and this Manuka Honey has been like an angel helping me with these issues. It has SIGNIFICANTLY improved the acne and white-heads on my face along with improving the scars. All I do is wet my face a little and then apply a layer of this honey on my face for however long I feel like because not only does it cleans your face, but it also moisturizes! This stuff also washes off soo easy (I don't know how but it does) and basically it's the most amazing product in the world. If you're still not convinced to try it, try looking at review videos on youtube and I'm sure you'll be convinced too!

Ok. Let me tell you my experience with this stuff. I own horses and a few years ago I had a horse that suffered an absolutely horrific external injury to the back leg. No flesh was left afterwards. It was pretty much deaths door for the poor baby. Our vet told us at that point there was very little we could do, but he gave us a jar of manuka honey as one last hope. We covered this horses leg in it as bandaged it. Three says later. A layer of flesh has grown back. Nine months later he was walking and running around as f it had never happened. It also reduced the scarring majorly! Manuka honey saved that horses life. And now I'm just amazed with it's healing power. I have very acne prone oily skin so I use this everyday as a face mask. I generally leave it on for an hour to three hours a night. It washes off very easily with water and clears my skin so dam fast it's brilliant. I don't use any other face washes anymore except to remove my makeup. This completely eliminates the need for exfoliators, washes, treatments etc. And this is coming from the girl who has pretty much had shitty skin for six years and tried everything including proactive. I also live in nz so it doesn't cost too much. 17 dollars for a jar of 10+. It obviously won't work for everyone but if you have scarring and uneven skin, bad texture and redness this will help so much.

I have dry, sensitive, very acne prone skin and purchaed a jar of 10+ Manuka honey to use as a cleanser, mask and spot treatment. After patch testing, I used the honey as a cleanser and spot treatment for 3 days, my skin just seemed to become far more inflamed and irritated. The acne I had was red and even more sore than before and new blemishes and red patches of skin were popping up everywhere! The only plus side was that my skin was a little more hydrated, but overall I am so dissapointed with the results, especially as it was very expensive. UPDATE: This stuff caused me some of the worst eczema I have ever experienced, if your skin is even the least bit sensitive please patch test first!

Nice as face mask several times a week, or even as a face wash. There are a million and one things that you can use it for, making it a great beauty/personal care staple to have on hand. PROSCalms skin: My face feels smoother and less irritated after leaving it on for an hourActs as a natural anti-bacterial without irritation or drying the skin outMulti-purpose: Good for blemishes, cuts, eczema, sore throat, etc.Amazing as an alternative, natural acne treatment if you're pregnant or thinking of starting of starting a family (products containing Retin-A can cause birth defects). Pro tip: Cover a pesky blemish with a breathable bandaid or surgical tape and leave on overnight to maximize benefits. CONSIt doesn't cure acne overnight--if anything, it brings those nasty 'underground' comedone plugs to a head (which helps speed up the healing process)Sticky! Especially when my cat walks up and decides to give me a kiss on the face :)I use Wedderspon Manuka 12 UMF, but next time I would probably go for at least 16 UMF.Shop around because the price varies. I'm addicted to Whole Foods but wouldn't repurchase there because I've found Wedderspon for less elsewhere. Overall, it's excellent value when you consider how much you get compared to what you'd pay for a chemically-based, less effective product at Sephora. Will definitely continue to repurchase.

HG. I even quit using Cerave wash except once every other day or to remove makeup. Manuka is amazing on all levels. Hydrating, soothes acne, all natural- try it! You'll never look back!:)!

I have never bothered to write reviews for anything but after trying Manuka honey, I had to. I've been using the wedderspoon Manuka honey 12+ active and it's worked wonders!I was using proactiv for 10 years. Although it is a harsh product, it kept my skin clear (my skin is not at all sensitive and needs strong products to maintain it) but after they changed their line to a more 'mild formula', I started breaking out in horrible cystic acne. I tried tea tree oil, different cleansers, lemon juice, vitamin e oil, changing my diet, and the olay microdermabrasion to clear the acne and the subsequent hyperpigmentation but nothing was working well.I finally researched Manuka honey and went to buy a jar at whole foods. It's expensive, 30$ for a plastic jar, but it was very worth it. I've only been using it for two weeks but the hyper pigmentation is finally starting to fade, my skin tone is starting to even out, my oiliness has reduced dramatically, and there has been no more break outs. My pores are not as clogged anymore resulting in a lot less whiteheads and my skin is returning back to its good old clear days.I use the honey as a mask for an hour every night after washing my face with my Murad aha/bha cleanser. The mask does get a little messy because the warmth of your skin melts the honey if applied too thickly. Overall, I would definitely recommend giving this product a try especially if you feel like you've hit rock bottom with your skin. It really worked for me.

This is the 'base mask' that I add my honey to: Oatmeal : two teaspoons (Any oatmeal is fine, be it instant or just the normal ones)Yogurt : one and a half to two teaspoonsIt is as simple as that. Although simple and basic as it is, this humble mask will instantly brighten, whiten and reduce redness on your skin. It soothes any irritation and leaves your skin feeling so smooth after.How I customise my mask to cater to my skin's needs: 1. HoneyGreat for : it's moisturising, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant abilitiesHoney has a great moisturising ability and can significantly prolong the time the mask stays moist. The longer the mask stays moist on the skin, the more your skin absorbs.It is also anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. Honey also has anti-oxidants in it. It is said that the darker the honey, the better the anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant properties of the honey. It is no surprise that Manuka Honey is the darkest of them all. In my picture I used Manuka honey, but I found that the more affordable honey works just as well on the skin. Directions: add half a teaspoon of honey to base mixtureTo read on about how oatmeal, yogurt helps your skin, or how I customise my masks with tumeric, coffee or lemon read: http://claudlyy.blogspot.com/2014/12/how-to-instantly-brighten-whiten-reduce.html
