    My first honey wash, I just used straight honey. Then, due to dryness (but not as much as with soap!), after discovering oil-washing, I have since been spreading my face with grapeseed oil and washing it off with honey. But I still need moisture afterwards or my nose gets flaky. :( So if I try the method of baking soda with honey (and I’m sure I shall, since I have very oily skin and LOTS of blackheads that thankfully are becoming less visible!) I will absolutely need a moisturizer to follow. Right now, not having decided upon a natural one yet, I just use as sparing an amount as possible of trader joes midsummer nights cream. before switching to honey/oil wash, I slathered my face in the stuff, but I’m trying to be conservative with it these days, not knowing much about it’s ingredients… This morning however, I touched up with some more grapeseed oil on my nose (extremely tiny amount so as not to grease myself back up again) and elsewhere, and have seemingly survived, so who knows? maybe the grapeseed oil will be my moisturizer of choice now? I’ll have to use it for a few days before making a final verdict. :)

    Do you do the honey/acv/oil method before after a shower…I shower at night.

    I gave been using the OCM for over a month now and I have seen great results. Just recently I started using raw honey on my dry face after a few minutes I cleanse with crunchy Betty’s oil cleansing face wash. After washing off with clean warm wash cloth I moisterize with CB lucid face oil. So far so good!

    I tried the Honey (and a few other things) for the first time last night. I was very impressed. The product I had been using said it was “non-drying”… that was not true. It was drying my face so much it started to peel. The Honey method was very easy. The only thing I didn’t like was smelling like the ACV. Can anyone suggest something that does the same thing as the ACV but smells better?

  5. I usually do not leave a leave a response, however I looked at a few of the responses here Removing Your Makeup the Honey
    Face-Wash Way | Crunchy Betty. I actually do
    have a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind.
    Is it just me or do a few of these responses look
    as if they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if
    you are writing on other online social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post.
    Would you make a list of every one of all your social pages like your Facebook
    page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

      I was thinking the same thing. Brain dead.
      I shake my head , DAILY, at the numbskulls that inhabit our world these days. There is NO excuse, for the level of ignorance displayed, with the existence of Google. Just sayin’.

  6. This is nicely expressed! !

  7. Wonderful information. Thanks.

  8. Honey is one of the highly effective natural face wash for acne that can be used daily. It does an excellent job of cleaning the skin while also moisturizing it leaving the skin smooth and soft.

    What purpose does baking soda serve in this regimen? If it is for exfoliating could cinnamon or something else be used instead?

    • Cass

      I bought raw honey with royal jelly in it. It’s rather granular and stays that way until you rinse it off. Ifound it excellent for exfoliating.

    • Sal

      From what I hear baking soda works as a neutralizer for your PH level in your skin. I think it works the same for hair as well.

  10. Debbie

    What do u think about coconut oil? I have been putting on my face at night for awhile. Thanks!

  11. AmyMills

    I do not need to moisturize after washing with honey but in the morning I do need to have some SPF on my skin, so I put a light layer of my current daytime moisturizer (SPF 25) under my makeup and it seems to do the trick. I agree with you though! Feels fresh and moist!

  12. Allison

    The raw honey is really drying out my face….. I need to apply a moisterizer after I wash….. Does the ACV serve as a moisterizer? Or do you have any recommendations for a natural moisterizer? Thank you:-)

    Hi there! I just came upon your website and I love it!! I do have a question abt the honey and baking soda wash. I thought exfoliating everyday harmed your skin, so would washing with the baking soda to remove my makeup, wouldn’t that freak out my skin? If you could help, I would so appreciate it. Cant wait to start the honey wash!:)

  14. Hi! I’ve been going back and forth on your site for hours now (I love it), and was just curious what order some of you use for face cleaning. Do you still exfoliate after the OCM? What do you use?


  15. Irise

    Ive been using the Somaluxe Face Wash (with organic ingredients) everyday. Works amazing, makes skin clear after the first use. It smells so fresh and makes your skin feel like it just left the spa. The ingredients are not harsh nor do they test on animals. Which is a big plus. It keeps pores perfect and makes my skin even.

    How tall is your glass cruet? (The pitcher with the honey in it)

    Really.. thank you for starting this up. This site is one thing
    that is required on the web, someone with some originality!

    Should my skin burn when I apply the ACV??

  21. In fact no matter if someone doesn’t understand
    after that its up to other people that they will help, so here it occurs.

  22. I actually got so annoyed with doing squats that were not being counted, that I had to
    end the workout, and skip into another one. So should you sign up for a weight
    loss program or come up with your own. Its Vitamin C component is
    believed to help wash out toxins from the
    body as well as prevent fat absorption.

  23. Or just discover the obscure historical past about your
    neighborhood throughout your subsequent stroll to the park.

  24. I am in fact delighted to glance at this web site posts which consists
    of lots of valuable data, thanks for providing these kinds of information.

  25. I think the admin of this website is in fact working hard for his web page, because here
    every stuff is quality based stuff.

  26. Link exchange is nothing else except it is just placing the other person’s blog
    link on your page at appropriate place and other person will also do
    same for you.

  27. Instead of baking soda and honey, I read somewhere that cinnamon and honey will also wash your face and remove makeup but it won’t throw your PH off. I have been using this method for a while and I like it. I am just wondering if you had heard of this and if ACV is needed with cinnamon and honey.

    Of all things Ive tried to remove makeup and acne at the same time (naturally) this is the only time in my life im having almost perfect skin just in less than 2 weeks… i mix baking soda with honey in a microfiber towel, do the same as instructed, clean again with water and acv mixed, and use pumpkin seed oil to take out eye makeup and moisture and the end and acne is gone and even is clearing my face from blemishes… tried everything from oil cleansing with many many kinds of oil… had many many breakouts .. i thought i was never going to have acne free face… but thanks to this post, i think Ive found it. Thnks alot :) super sincerely… me

    • ChillEpepR

      Congrats on awesome results. I’m hoping I can curb my breakout prone, combo oily skin too. Im tired of dealing with new spots every morning. I tried a version of the honey and baking soda cleanse for the first time today. I’m going to add in the acv tomorrow. I’ve been using Grape seed oil vs coconut oil as a moisturizer for a week or so. (Tried coconut oil and struggled with breakouts from that.) Grape seed is going well so far. I’m curious KLH4ever…what was your experience with grapeseed oil? And do you use raw honey? Thanks and God Bless.

  29. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering issues with your
    website. It appears as though some of the text within your
    posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please
    comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Thank you

    I have very fair, sensitive, dry skin (and maybe the beginnings of rosacea). I started wearing less foundation and using the Somaluxe Face Cleanser to wash off my foundation. Its the only face cleanser I have found that really gets my foundation off – AND I starting getting compliments on my skin. This is what I do:

    1. I take off my mascara with the Somaluxe Face Cleanser
    2. Rinse face with warm water.

    From other reviews, I then massage my face with the cleanser for 30-60 seconds. Skin feels nice not tight.I am 40+ and everyone says I look 30 !

  32. Rose

    I’ve been using the Honey/Baking Soda wash every evening to take off my makeup, and I love it! I find that eye makeup is more difficult to take off, so I use Neutrogena cleansing wipes, then use the wash. My face is usually dry after this, so I use the ACV to moisturize. It works amazing! My skin is so soft, and every day my acne gets better and better. I don’t even need a cleanser anymore! I’m very pleased with the results, and I’d recommend this to anyone, no matter your skin type.

    I found on another website a recipe for a natural facial wash with honey that I love. It’s 1/4 cup raw honey, 1/4 cup oil (olive or coconut), and 1/4 cup castile soap. It works great. I am 42 years old and have been battling adult acne for a while now. This cleanser does not bother my skin. It will even clean the mascara and eye makeup off my eyes. Depending on the time of year, I may use a light moisturizer afterwards, but sometimes it’s not necessary.

    I love organic products and any antioxidant items and have tried all of them – but the Somaluxe Face Wash is the best. I used the Somaluxe Wash in the morning, and can still feel my skin zinging right into the evening. It is really important to me to find superior quality natural products and i enjoy the texture.

    It is so wonderfully refreshing to look at the ingredients list and not squirm! I have not found other brands have achieved this – even products over $50 each! Save yourself from overspending on items that will not do the best for your skin, and stop battling with age.
