    I’m one week in and my skin has become dehydrated and itchy. fyi i’m usually pretty oily. i think i might be using the wrong kind of honey. weird thing is ever since i started washing face with honey it has become more sensitive to other face wash. the other night i tried washing with drugstore creamy cleanser (hada labo, i don’t know if it’s a known brand in us/europe but it’s pretty big here in asia) which usually calms any irritation…and the itch and dehydration became worse. any suggestions? i don’t want to give up because seeing how i now react to my previous cleanser i can’t go back but i’m not sure i should continue with this batch of honey… (it is however super yummy on toast so i can always relocate it to my kitchen)

      Maybe add a drop or two of milk if your skin is dry and make sure you wash the honey off completely. If you don’t, it will get itchy.

  10. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and
    I ended up losing months of hard work due to no
    back up. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

    four days into the honey challenge and my skin is breaking out. Has this happened to anyone else? sticking with the 2 weeks hoping it will clear up beautifully once all the dirt and oil is pulled out.

  12. With this proven system you to definitely can lower your
    blood glucose level and retake charge of your health and your life.

    I’ve always had sensitive, dry skin, and most things over the counter irritate it. After my first usage of honey, I could already see and feel a difference. A week and a half after using honey on my face EVERY DAY, I received my first compliment (from a complete stranger). It’s only been about 4 weeks, my face has never looked better, and strangers continue to compliment my skin. (I get a kick out of the looks I get when I tell them I use raw honey…) AND I’ve converted 5 people to honey usage! This stuff really works!!!!

    I live in Texas and what’s available in my area is Kelley’s raw, unfiltered honey. Make sure you get raw, unfiltered honey… “Grade A” honey doesn’t mean raw!

    In my experience, it’s also important to do it every day for the best results. (Previously, I was only using honey once or twice a week.) Thank you, Crunchy Betty!!

  14. When someone writes an article he/she maintains the idea of a user in his/her brain that how a user can know it.
    Therefore that’s why this article is perfect. Thanks!

    i have a family of blackheads on my little nose and im desperate for them to move out! my forehead, chin and pretty much entire face and neck have luttle dry patches of insatiable itch inducers. i cant seem to shake the fear of “washing” with honey…help!

  18. Goldylocksca

    Willingly I will wash my face with raw honey at least once a day for the next two weeks.

  19. sridevi

    hi crunchy,
    can you please tell me whether i can use dabur honey or pathanjali honey for this honey challenge.i m just confused about what are the key words(other than raw) that are available on honey bottle for identification of raw honey.because till now i didnot get any honey bottle on which key word raw is written.

  20. I ,michelle peiffer, am accepting the challenge to wash my face with honey for two weeks….

  21. Terri

    Love the honey! Gotta be the real stuff, it’s thick and kinda white in colour not the runny yellow stuff even though they say pure, it’s not and made me break out. Found some at the farmers market and it works great!, so soft. I use it in the morning to cleanse.

  24. Madison

    So I can add this to my oil cleansing, no problem. Right?
    I have been doing the oil cleanser for two weeks but I am still having breakout problems, I will add this in after my oil cleansing and see if it helps at all.

  25. Do you have any video of that? I’d love to find out some additional information.

  26. mary

    Sorry I’m late to this thread. What about organic Honey. The bottle doesn’t say “raw”.

    I started using raw honey to wash my face at the beginning of the year. I was breaking out like crazy over the holidays, worse than ever before. I started with the two-week honey challenge and saw positive effects almost immediately, my painful zits became less inflamed and stopped hurting as much, and any pimples that did pop out went away quickly. I’ve cut down to using the honey once a day in the morning, followed by jojoba oil for moisturizer. Since January my breakouts have decreased significantly, to the point that I get maybe one or two zits a month, and only when I’m PMSing. The ones I do get don’t hurt like they used to (no more of those awful under-the-skin suckers that feel like a mountain of hurt on your face). I might go back to using honey twice a day when the heat returns (I’m in New England), but thus far I am a true raw-honey-as-facewash convert and tell everyone how much I love it!

  29. Gwen

    Thank you for the wonderful post! Quick question, does honey remove sunscreen? Like something as heavy as badger’s for example?

  30. Me ha encantado tu articulo. Hace al menos 5 meses que sufro lo mismo.

  33. Maggie

    I started the honey challenge tonight, and will give the honey a 2-weeks trial. I have great expectations. :-)

  34. Joan

    My son, 27, has acne and uses commercial products/medication. He also has a beard and moustache. With honey being sticky in hair, how does the honey wash work with a beard/moustache?

    I am taking the 2 week honey challenge, started yesterday (6/22/15). If it works for me, I want to be able to recommend it to him, and to my new daughter-in-love, who is gifting me with my first grandchild in December!

    -I, Diane, solemnly swear to wash my face with honey every day for two weeks, no exceptions, no excuses.I already use the COM and love it, so I’m super excited to try this. We keep bees and have lots of raw honey already, so this is right up my alley!

  36. Lw

    Hi! I have suffered from acne and black heads as well as large pores on my chin and T zone for years. I’m considering trying honey. Would you suggest using an exfoliant a few times a week as well ( some suggest adding brown sugar to honey and using it as an exfoliation)? Right now I’m using a gentler, more natural cleanser which doesn’t dry out my sensitive skin, yet at the same time, it doesn’t clean deep enough to take care of my blackheads.

    I LOVE washing my face with honey. I have dry skin with occasional dry, red patches. My face looks & feels AWESOME! This is better than the $90 medicated cream that my doctor prescribed. Plus no negative side effects.
