Wow! I can't believe how long this thread is!
I thought I would just share my results. I have been using honey as the main ingrediant for my skincare since Nov 06, for some reason I hit 30 and my skin went wacko on me. Anyway it took a while for my skin to adjust to the honey; I think about 4-6 wks before I started noticing continued results. Right off the bat I got soft skin and the tightness went away. After about a week the oily and dry spots balanced out. Once the acne break out cleared up the honey seemed to keep the zits at bay. I was also using various oils to moisterize...again it took a long time and different oils for me to find the right one. I went through jojoba, vco, olive, shea butter and finally rose hip. The later is the one that works best for me. I still use shea at night when I have dry patches that need extra attention or right before AF since that is when I am most prone to break outs.
Now I use a mix of Honey and oat flour in the am. In the p.m. I use olive oil to remove all my make up, then use just plain o'l honey to wash. I tone with green tea/avc (Thank you Leta) finish with rosehip oil and a couple drops of lavender oil.
Oh one last thing - I use pure raw honey in liquid form, I keep the bottle in the shower.
