Video Title: Manuka Honey on Acne

Video Author:  by Cloudy Apples.                     Published Date: September 9, 2014

Hey everyone, it’s Cassie. I am about to go to bed right now and the reason I look like a pile of ground beef is because I am not wearing any make up. I am going to try something that you guys have mentioned a lot in the comments and I have been reluctant to try. Just because putting honey on my face just seems like a very sticky and disgusting experience.

I have been eating a lot of bad food lately and I have mentioned before that when I eat bad food my skin in very easily impacted by it.  Pizza, Ramen Noodles, Deep Fried Pretzels and French Fries. They are all part of me know, so I have got to do something about it.

I’ve got these two really mean monsters right here. These hurt really badly and I also have this little constellation of acne all the way down my jaw.

I am going to try Manuka Honey.  I am going to use it as a Mask for 20 minutes, wash it off and then do a spot treatment, go to bed, wake up and then tell you guys what my first impression of Manuka Honey is.

I feel like it’s going to be really gross. That’s why I have never done it. But everyone in my comments, is like “Guys you gotta try Manuka Honey, it’s the best thing ever!”

I’ve got my 10+ Manuka Honey. My Mom got it for me. I know you can get higher numbers, but my Mom will always go for the cheaper honey if she can. Which I appreciate.

Here we go.  Gooey, Gooey, rich and chewy.

Yes, it feels quite disgusting, but the smell is AMAZING.

My current skincare routine smells really, really bad. It’s Apple Cider Vinegar, Tea Tree Oil and a bunch of really horrible things and Terry Cannot stand it.  I think he will like this a lot better if I end up adopting it into my skincare routine.

I am going to be honest with you guys. It’s kind of burning right now, and I hope that’s normal. I don’t know. I didn’t really look into it, because I wanted this to be a genuine first impression. But I hope the burning will fade. I am going to wait 20 minutes.  Hopefully just using water will be enough to get it off and my face won’t be sticky after. Because that’s one of the reasons why I didn’t want to use it in the first place.

I am going to go wash my hands.

It’s been about 5 minutes. The burning sensation has calmed down and I have to admit that it feels kind of good. It’s been 20 minutes so I am going to go and wash it off. I will let you know how it washes off.

It came off so much easier than I thought it would, my face isn’t sticky at all. My face doesn’t feel too tight or to dehydrated. It just feel good. And I put on some Lip Balm, but I am not going to put on any moisturiser, just because I am going to isolate the Manuka Honey and see if it does what I want it too do.  I am just going to spot treat these big horrible nasties with some Manuka Honey, go to sleep and wake up tomorrow morning and tell you what happens. Because these are the kinds of zits that will be there for weeks if you don’t do something about it.

This is probably going to make a huge mess anyway, but we’ll see.

Urgh.. This feels so gross.

It seems a little bit counter-intuitive to be fighting sugar with sugar.

I am going to go to bed and I will see you guys tomorrow.

Joke involving the boyfriend in the middle here.

Good morning, Well last night pretty much epitomized the reason why I did not want to use honey in the first place.  I am a face sleeper and honey got everywhere.  It’s a sticky terrible mess.

I woke up far earlier than I normally should and I couldn’t get back to sleep, so I like had this huge Missy Elliot Search and I was listening Missy Elliot and now I’m really, really tired.

But, that’s not the only thing that I havae to say about the Manuka Honey.  Despite the fact that the redness is still there, because that’s what hyperpigmentation does in my particular case. Today they don’t even hurt. If you couldn’t see the redness I wouldn’t be able to tell that I had breakouts.

There is nothing there that a little concealer can’t fix, so I am very, very intrigued. Obviously using a moisturising after you have cleansed is a good idea, but I didn’t do it because I wanted to isolate the honey to see what it did to my skin and all of my blemishes are visible but, they are less intense and they are not painful to the touch.

I am super impressed with that, so I am going to keep using it, but with a moisturiser and if I use it as a spot treatment, I am only going to use it during the day, because night time was horrible.

If you guys have any reviews, good or bad about Manuka Honey, please let me know because I am always in the Comments and now I am going to go and work out, because that is part of my morning routine.

I will talk to you guys soon. Bye.

  1. How long should I use this product? I understand you wear it at night, but is this a one-time thing, as needed basis, or like a nightly thing?

    Also, you are so delightful! I know I just watched a video but you so funny! A pile of garbage. You look absolutely stunning!

    But I would need to give this a try. Maybe I will leave it on only for 20 minutes before bed.

    1. Hello and thanks for stopping by.  How long should you wear it for? It depends on your body and either the level of inflammation or what your activities are going to be for the day.  Perhaps start with 20 minutes and then wash it off if you are busy today.  Alternatively, perhaps leave it on over night (the pillow will be sticky with honey by morning).  See how you go .  Your body will guide you.  This Manuka is “food grade” and great to eat! so enjoy!

  2. I came across your site while looking for some natural products to help with my sons acne.

    The Manuka Honey I had not heard of before. I am looking forward to getting this for him to try.

    Can you give me an idea of how many days before a person starts to see some results from using it?

    1. Hi Chris,

      Thank you for visiting our site today. 
      I am sorry to hear that your son has acne.  I am sure that it must be really frustrating for him. 

      Unfortunately many teenagers today get acne and it can make them feel really self-conscious.  Acne is often the result of inflamed or infected glands. 

      Manuka Honey is brilliant at attacking the bacteria that might be present in the inflammed area.  Manuka Honey is also really good at stimulating white blood sells into action in order to have the body heal itself.  If you are curious and want to learn more, please click here.

      In relation to timeframe, it will depend on the severity of the acne and how long he leaves the Manuka Honey on for. It is important for wound healing that the Manuka Honey covers all of the infected area. It will also depend on the quality of the Manuka Honey selected.  Most medical grade Manuka Honey is rated UMF 15+.  Personally, if I had acne and wanted them gone quickly, I wouldn’t use anything less than a UMF 10+ (approx. MGO of 250+).  For more information regarding the Manuka Honey rating system, please click here.

      Thank you again for stopping by, I hope your son’s acne clears up soon.
