ALL ABOUT HONEY MASKS REVIEW

Since going green I have been all about the masks! Especially the honey masks because you could literally leave them on all day if you wanted to, they are extremely nourishing. I will usually sneak upstairs and put one on in the morning and then rinse it off when I shower and get ready for the day with the kids. Kind of gives my face that kickstart for a glowing day, and my skin is left supple so I don’t feel like I need makeup.

MAY LINDSTROM HONEY MUD

(Pictured above-Bottom right, black jar, light brown color.)

This is a green beauty cult favorite! It is the first honey mask I added to my collection. I purchased it from Citrine Natural Beauty Bar, and used organicbunny10 code to save at checkout. I am very impressed with all of my May Lindstrom products, you can see my full review of the entire collection here.

It can be used as a cleanser by massaging into warm, damp skin to remove makeup and debris.

I always use it as a mask. Applying it to clean, dry skin and allowing to penetrate for an extended period of time. (It is recommended to let penetrate for 10-20 minutes)

This is by far the thickest of the honey masks and the scent is intoxicating. It is truly a treat every time I use it. Very much makes me feel like I am at a luxury spa, even if it is only for a few minutes.

It rinses off clean, my skin is left soft and nourished! I like to follow with the May Lindstrom Youth Dew.

I wouldn’t change a thing. This product is absolutely amazing and I seriously hope I don’t ever have to be without it!

It is seriously a powerhouse full of nourishing ingredients. I always reach for it when my face and I need a pick me up.

Leaving it plump and refreshed. It has an amazing feminine rose scent! This ritual is highly addicting.

Deeply hydrate for a plump, glowing appearance. Gently remove dead skin and stimulate cellular renewal. Manage problem-prone skin by clearing bacteria that cause inflammation.

LEAHLANI HONEY LOVE 3-IN-1

(Pictured above-bottom left-dark blue jar-dark brown color)

I first discovered Leahlani Skincare seeing her cult favorite Mermaid Mask on my fellow green beauties. The two together are a force to be reckoned with! If you want to see the full review of these two products and more from my first order click here.

Honey Love 3-In-1 is a cleanser, mask, and exfoliator, you guessed it all in 1! Talk about value.

So how it works. You scoop a bit off the top and massage it into your warm damp skin, I wait forever and then rinse. (Recommended time is 3-5 minutes)

Then I stir to activate the crystals that naturally settle to the bottom of the jar. Scoop a bit off the bottom and massage into your skin for a couple of minutes. (Recommended time is 1-2 minutes) After massaging you can let it sit on your skin for an additional few minutes. (Recommended time is 3-5 minutes)

I like to following my Honey Love 3-In-1 cleansing/mask, exfoliating/mask ritual with the Mermaid Mask!

I just received my next order of Leahlani Skincare goodies, I used code organicbunny, to save at checkout too. I will be doing a full review of these products next.

Oh and my Honey Love pictured above is the old version. The new version has a few changes in the formulation:

We have added wildcrafted Maqui berry to the formulation. Maqui berry is one of the worlds most powerful superfoods, containing the highest levels of antioxidants amongst all fruits. The antioxidants contained in this berry have an extra molecule of oxygen, which help to quickly combat the effects of free radical damage while reducing inflammation and protecting cell membranes.

We have also added wildcrafted Noni fruit due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial nature. The addition of rose clay helps to stimulate circulation and tighten pores, while helping to even out hyperpigmentation. 

DESCRIPTION & INGREDIENTS

BEURRE CÉLESTE HONEY OIL CLEANSER + MASK

(Pictured above-black jar-golden color)

If you have been following my Instagram lately you know I have been pretty obsessed with err thing Moss! If you don’t believe me take a peek at my Moss Stash and review here.

Because I am loving all of my other honey masks naturally I had to get Beurre Celeste from Moss. This is by far the thickest and most creamy of the bunch. It is almost the consistency of a soft beauty balm, and reminds me of butter!

You can use it to cleanse like you would an oil cleanser. But I am all about getting the most out of everything. So I like to leave it on as a mask, for as long as I like. And get this recommended time for application is as long as I like, hallelujah! Moss for the win.

As Celestnya says, this is one seriously decadent oil cleanser that meets raw honey.

I use this when my skin is congested especially!

DESCRIPTION & INGREDIENTS

A wonderful cleanser for dry skin, especially if you leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing. Great for congested skin – helps exfoliate, soften and smooth. A beautiful blend of oils and anti-bacterial honey, taking oil cleansing for acne-prone skin to the next level.

Raw Honey, Macadamia Ternifolia (Macadamia) Nut Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Garcinia Indica (Kokum) Seed Butter, Lecithin, Xanthan Gum, Therapeutic Essential Oil blend (includes Myrtle, Lemon and more)
