There are a few things that I refuse to skimp on: toilet paper, paper towels, a good face foundation, and skin care. Pretty much everything else I don’t mind buying the “cheap” or “cheaper” stuff. So it will come as no surprise that I buy MAC and philosophy makeup. And for skin care? philosophy all the way. I love it doesn’t irritate my skin, they smell good, and they work. For the most part. Even though I used those products religiously, I still always seemed to have dry skin around my nose and on my chin and forehead. And it irritated me to no end, but it was the best stuff I’d found.
Until I was given the chance to try Honey Girl Organics. Honey Girl Organics products are simply A-MA-ZING. My skin has never looked or felt so good.
All of the products are made with organic Hawaiian honey, beeswax, propolis, pollen, and royal jelly. These ingredients are packed with nutrition and healing qualities. All of these ingredients are also edible. They believe that it’s best to put on your body only what you’d be willing to put into your body. And really, how could you not agree with that?
I bet I know what you’re thinking: did I taste it? Because of course it occurred to me too. But I did not. Seemed kinda weird to eat my lotion, you know? But I could if I wanted to!
Now back to the products: Honey Girl Organics sent me a TON of products to try. I have to be honest when I tell you that I wasn’t expecting too much. I figured they’d work and I’d write a nice review and that would be it. I was so wrong! I am now a Honey Girl convert!
The first product I tried was the Facial Cleanser. It comes with a nice little pump and I just keep it in the shower. You shake it, and you only need a very small amount. It takes off your makeup while cleansing your face. I can remove my eye makeup without stinging my eyes. At first, it felt like it left my skin feeling a little greasy, but when I dried off, my skin just felt silky smooth. I was really surprised by how it took all of my makeup off and didn’t leave me feeling like my face had all of the moisture sucked out of it (like soap leaves your skin feeling after a shower).
It was then on to the Facial Toner. I’m not a big toner girl, but I tried it and have continued to use it because it is so refreshing! It’s a nice pick-me-up at the end of a long day.
Next, I tried the Face and Eye Cream. Yep, you read that right…face AND eye cream! This is the stuff that sold me on Honey Girl forever. I was a little turned off by the smell at first, because I’m not used to something that smelled so strong. Even after it dried, I kept smelling it. Now, I really love the smell because it reminds me of how well it works and it means that I’m feeding my skin! I saw immediate results from this product. Not only did it soften (and it makes my skin SO soft) and moisturize my skin, I have noticed that it’s repaired fine lines around my eyes. Like no product that I’ve ever tried before! And the dry skin around my nose and on my chin and forehead? Gone. After one use. I’m not kidding.
I also love the Body Cream. It’s packed full of stuff that makes your skin feel instantly moisturized. Using it just makes me feel good. I need to get another jar of it to keep downstairs by the sink!
They sent me other products as well, and I’m going to continue to share them with you. But these are the products that immediately sold me forever on Honey Girl Organics. Yes, these products are pricey – but if you used high-end products (like philosophy) already, you will be used to the price. If you think I’m crazy for paying $29.99 for face and eye cream, let me tell you why it’s 100% worth it: because you literally use a pea-sized amount of it. I’ve been using the stuff everyday for almost 2 months now and it’s nowhere near being gone. It is worth every.single.penny.
Don’t believe me? The only reason I agreed to try Honey Girl in the first place is because my gorgeous friends Lerner and Morgan both swear by the stuff and now I understand why. And I want you to, too!
