The best honey-infused beauty buys to sweeten up your routine
Beauty that beez in the trap

Honey is kind of like nature’s golden elixir, boasting anti-bacterial, humectant and nourishing properties. From medicinal to skin care benefits (we’re looking at you manuka honey) and everything in-between, honey has an otherworldly ability to make anything it’s dropped into feel all that more indulgent.
In fact, this decadent delicacy is the sweet addition to all of the beauty products in this carefully curated line-up. From serums to fragrance, the natural ingredient is the star of the show in every single one of these beauty buys.
Here are five honey-infused picks that we think are the bee’s knees.
FARMACY Honeymoon Glow AHA Resurfacing Night Serum
Honey and hyaluronic acid are the powerful humectants behind the hydration-powered pressure blast your skin is going to experience with this little winner in your routine. Thanks to the addition of AHAs, BHAs and a blend of gentle flower acids, this serum resurfaces, hydrates, and clarifies dull skin as you snooze for a sinfully glowy complexion by breakfast. Yum.
WISHFUL Honey Balm Jelly Moisturizer
This unique water-in-silicone formula really seals in moisture, ensuring that the moisturiser’s ingredient complex can maintain its potency and deliver all that skin-loving honey extract, niacinamide and turmeric straight to where it’s needed. You can look forward to a hydrated complexion for up to 24 hours after application, as well as an improvement to the appearance of any hyperpigmentation and texture. The promise of a brighter visage, basically non-existent pores and reduction in redness means you’re on the fast track to that glass skin we’re all after.
Swisse Skincare Manuka Honey Daily Glow Foaming Cleanser
It’s all natural and all good when it comes to this daily cleanser. Boasting a formula that includes not only Manuka honey but a blend of vitamin C and papaya enzymes, it helps to keep dull, tired skin firmly at bay. Consider this the perfect wake me up to get any day started.
Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask
Designed to add a bit of luxury to your everyday, this cleansing mask is formulated for daily use (if you like it like that, otherwise once or twice a week should do the trick) and combines Manuka honey extract and organic avocado oils rich in omegas 9, 3 and 6 for hydrated soft skin that’s free from impurities post-rinse. Simply carve out a cool 15 min mask sesh and you’re good to go. We love.
Jo Malone London Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne
Now that your skin care routine is honey-infused, you should probably smell like the sweet and natural offering too. Spritz some of this nectarine blossom and honey cologne over yourself and enjoy playful notes of nectarine, peach, cassis, spring florals and acacia honey. Nature’s nectar never smelled so good.
