Tried-and-true beauty treats that are oh-so-sweet.
You know the old saying: "You get more boys (er, bees) with honey." And, with major beauty benefits (moisturizing and anti-aging to name a few), it's not hard to see there's a lot more to the gooey golden staple than meets the eye — or tastebud.
Read on for our menu of tried-and-true treats to try today.
1. Fresh Creme Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask
Fresh Creme Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask, $130
Made with pure honey and the antioxidant Echinacea, this new little luxury formula from Fresh goes on smooth and seals in moisture for up to six hours at a time. Planning another dip in the chlorine-soaked pool come morning? Rinse, lather and repeat up to 4 times a week to maintain that healthy glow.</p>
2. Lush Cosmetics Honey I Washed the Kids Soap
Lush Cosmetics Honey I Washed the Kids Soap, $7.95 for 3.5 oz.
To our pleasant surprise, this beloved soap from Lush Cosmetics somehow manages to smell, feel (and look) even cooler than it sounds. We suggest scooping up a big enough slab of the Canadian honey, beeswax and aloe-enriched formula to cover that special guy and all of his soon-to-be sweet spots.
3. Queen Helene Oatmeal 'n Honey Natural Facial Scrub
Queen Helene Oatmeal 'n Honey Natural Facial Scrub, $4.60
Affordable and efficient, your skin won't want you to skip this nourishing breakfast of a formula from Queen Helene. The pure honey replenishes to prevent any over-drying caused by polishing.
4. Kiss My Face Honey Calendula Moisturizer
Kiss My Face Honey Calendula Moisturizer, $11.95
Show your softer side (at least physically) with this smooth operator from Kiss My Face, which contains botanicals and oils for packing major moisture (without leaving behind that heavy, greasy residue found in some other lotions).
5. Herbal Essences Honey, I'm Strong Strengthening Shampoo
Herbal Essences Honey, I'm Strong Strengthening Shampoo, $4.29
Get ready to flex your (follicle) muscles! This creamy concoction from Herbal Essences has what it takes to whip weakened strands back into shape (and, once he gets a whiff, perhaps your relationship).
6. Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm
4. Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm, $3.30
As if we didn't already love Burt's Bees collection of natural lip remedies, this balm comes equipped with honey and vitamin E for major moisturizing benefits. Have a habit of licking your lips? Consider yourself warned as this tastes as good as it feels.
