This is seriously the best decision I've ever made. I've stopped using store-bought cleansers and soaps and masks, and have been using honey as a face mask every night. Not only do I wake up with a glow, any pimple I've had the night before either shrinks/ comes to a head or simply disappears. The process may not be instantaneous but I see results after just a couple of tries, and that's enough for me. This morning I decided to add cinnamon into the honey to spot treat a couple of cystic acne that would not go away. I also ended up smearing it all over my hyper-pigmentation marks left from previous acne because I'm so extra lol. But guess what? After 30 mins, I washed it off and saw that my inflammation was almost gone. I wasn't even expecting it! My face wasn't red, I didn't experience ANY burning sensation (which is what most reviews on cinnamon have said)- I guess it's because I bought organic cinnamon (?). I am LOVING this combo. If you have acne please change up your skincare routine to a simpler, more gentle and natural one. Have a go at this. It's also inexpensive! I can't think of any con except that it's sticky, so it's uncomfortable for an overnight mask (I still do it regardless)... good luck!

I've started using honey with some cinnamon to dab on to the pimples that come up from time to time. I find it works really well and within a few days it's gone. Even for those nasty cystic pimples! I just mix a very small amount of both and use a toothpick to apply. I try to leave it on at least twice a day for 20 mins.

I really wanted to like this. It lookied like it was working and making my acne disappear. Then my acne got radically worse. To this day, I'm not sure whether that was because of the stress I was under at the time or because of the honey. I do think it was the honey, though, because I stopped using it and my acne got better (full disclaimer: that wasn't the only change I made. I also started to drink more water and I purchased a higher-end skincare routine from Biotherm).

I have had a lot of success using honey as a face wash and as a hair treatment. I still need to try it out for other things as it seems to do a lot!

I mix honey with baking soda for a gentle exfoliant. I keep it in a air tight container in my shower, it keeps well for weeks. I don't make large batches at a time. I love this exfoliant and have used it for years. Smell beautiful, tastes like honey comb leaves my skin feeling soft and never dry.

I mix honey with lemon juice to lighten my skin. I result is slightly lighter skin tone with out the drying effect of lemon juice.

I decided about a year ago to start going all natural with my skin care. I have sensitive skin to the point that I can't use any product that has chemicals in it. Even washing my hands with regular soap dries it out. I started using raw honey in my everyday regime as a twice daily wash. I love it!! It has helped my skin and makes it feel super nice. This is a wonderful product and will continue to use it for my acne skin!!

I use honey mixed with oat flour (Bob's Red Mill brand) as a mask, and it's so soothing! The oat flour exfoliates as well.

I really like the honey thing. It's not miracle like but I feel it is helping to calm my skin down a bit and it feels really good. I do this in the morning really often because in the evening I have to take of my makeup with my oils.
I also feel like it reduces my blackheads a bit and it makes me feel really fresh in the morning.
If you start using hones - maybe don't expect miracles but it is absolutely worth trying.

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.
