Just an fyi, i used raw honey in a mask and my face started feeling itchy and i kept sneezing like a maniac. i washed it off and had red welts all over my face. obviously an allergic reaction but i can eat normal (processed?) honey fine so just do a patch test ladies, so that your previously clear face does not end up red and irritated :(

I'm not sure how I came to use honey as a face wash. I stumbled across a blog discussing it and as someone who likes to experiment with natural products I decided to give it a whirl. I am using raw honey morning and night. I wet my face and smear a fingerful on, leave it for about 10 minutes and rinse off with cold water. I then dab a speck onto my pimples to stay on overnight.
I have been struggling with angry red pimples that take forever to heal for a while now. I'm sure they are a result of breastfeeding
(crazy hormones/baby sucking the life out me...). It's only been 3 days but right now I am considering throwing away all of my skin care products. It has been such a dramatic and awesome change in my skin!! Its soft, moisturised with even skin tone and happily, the angry little skin invaders are all nearly gone. Suffice to say this is one majorly chuffed chick.

inspired by all the positive reviews, i decided to give honey another chance. used it so long ago, forgot why i stopped.
now i know why - my very sensitive skin still too sensitive for honey.
i used organic raw honey, made by bees in the loving care of our friends, took a very small amount and mixed it with evoo. warmed up between fingers and patted gently over face.
feels good, smell delish. happy for about 2 minutes. then, burning and itchiness starts. waited another minute, but burning sensation intensified, so i had to wash it off with cool water.
still continued stinging and even patting with a very soft towel felt painful.
though it does not work for me. i am happy it works for so many of you. moi, i will stick with eating raw honey in the morning :)

About a year ago I had severe acne and nothing was working. I was put on antibiotics which even made my face worse. I was very depressed. I read on this board about honey used as a face wash or a face mask for the treatment of acne and I can say without a doubt this saved my life. I stopped using all products including my antibiotics and used raw honey on my face twice a day. My regime was that, I apply a generous amount of honey on my face for at least 30 minutes or more and I rinse with warm water. After that I just apply my basic moisturiser. I did this twice a day. In just one week my face was better. In about 2 months my face was clear with no acne and my dermatologist was even surprised. All I use on my face now is honey and my moisturiser and my face is clear without post acne scares.

I tried using honey on my face for the first time last week. I bought a tub of Whole Foods house brand raw honey for less than $7. I really want to try manuka honey at some point, but...it's pretty expensive.

Backstory: I'm still recovering from a bad reaction to a new product (it's been a couple months. grrr.) and what I need to fix is my lower face and forehead: severe clogging, zits that won't heal because the clogs have been so difficult to get rid of, and the eventual Dark Marks they generously leave in their wake. I attacked this situation aggressively at first but my skin became a murderous flaky mess so I backed off and treated the areas with a combo of apple cider vinegar + hygrogen peroxide and it's been working very nicely!

So, the honey. I applied a generous layer mixed with cinnamon and left it on for about an hour. When I rinsed it off, the active zits were *a good deal* less inflamed, my skin was soothed, smooth, hydrated, plump, and the clogs reduced. A few more masks and the whole deal is almost dealt with. I noticed light fading of the scars but they obviously take forevs to truly vanish.

Conclusion: honey totally works. If you want to splurge for the manuka, go for it, but a dark-colored raw variety works wonders too. Adding the cinnamon means more benefits for skin as well as a pretty great non-abrasive exfoliating treatment. It's sticky and weird and hard to spread on your face but not hard to wash off, in fact it's WAY easier to rinse off than say, a clay mask. (And if you get some in your mouth, it's delicious.)

I use this as a mask with equal parts honey and milk, and I add it to face wash sometimes to make it less drying, great ingredient! I want to try using it for other things too, but I haven't yet.

Honey has been used since egyptian times, its purely antibacterial and can be used as a mask, soap or shampoo. I've since given up on soap and have just used honey ever since. Using it as a mask mixed with egg white, will bring wonders. It can also be on your top list for first aid for cuts and such because of its antibacterial properties.
Its precious so when you buy it, make sure its in a squeezable bottle that way you can control the liquid.

I use raw accacia honey for face wash every night. I massage my face with it and a little water, sometimes i leave it for about 20 minutes. It totaly draws my pimples put and purifies my skin. It was a total mess.

If you have a messy skin be sure to try this. It's really great.

U can use any sort of real raw honey!
If U have a lot of acne, use darker sorts of honey like manuka or buckweat.

Moisturize skin after if you think its necessery, and use it also in the morning if u think its neccesery.

Ditch all of your soaps and milks.

I used honey as a face wash in the morning for 2 or so weeks, and it worked wonders! My tiny skin coloured bumps (clogged pores i believe) went away, and it somehow lightened a beauty mark on cheek (went from dark brown to light Brown) along with the tips of my lashes unfortunately :( i used to put it on my whole face and leave it for up to 20 minutes and then wash it off. I'm gonna try it again and this time with milk to see if it lightens my hyperpigmentation. Try it, srsly it works!!

Guys. Seriously. This is the best fricken thing you can ever put on your face. It's organic and is antibacterial and is soo good for your skin. I recommend buying the most organic one you can find. Personally what I do is buy expensive organic home grown honey and let it sit there for a few months, and then it turns into this sugary consistency, PERFECT for exfoliating. Even if you have perfect skin, honey is good for the skin and is very healthy to eat instead of sugar. If you're acne prone like me, add a teaspoon of cinnamon and you have a great exfoliator. You can't go wrong with honey!
