So, Kitschy inspired me to try the no poo thing again and along with that, using raw honey (it HAS to be raw!) as a face wash. At first, I was not really impressed with the honey. It wasn't horrible, but I didn't think it was doing anything great for me either. The last week though, I've noticed my pores have shrunk and my overall complexion is just smoother. I still get pimples here and there, but the rest of my face looks great!

I don't really have any great pics because my webcam tends to make my skin look better than it actually is LOL, but here's an after anyway. And I know, wet hair, no bangs isn't a great look for me so you can save that, anons. ;)

I should also add that I've made my own moisturizer, so that could be part of it too!

I found the recipe for my moisturizer:

1 cup raw, organic shea butter
1/2 cup coconut oil (unrefined, organic, virgin)
1 tsp vitamin E oil
1/2 tsp tea tree oil
splash of rosewater and glycerin mix 

Whip the ever loving CRAP out of it. :)

Your skin looks awesome! I'm totally addicted to honey now. Yay! I'm glad that it works for you! Have you tried the coconut oil on your eyes at night?

Sort of. I use co to take my makeup off, so it ends up being my eye moisturizer too. lol The honey and/or my moisturizer has seriously shrunk my pores and gotten rid of the redness I had in my cheeks. I am SHOCKED that it actually worked! (I'm such a pessimist lol).

I tried raw honey but it dried out my face too much so I switched to coconut oil and love it!!! I also use the coconut oil as a moisturizer if I dry my skin out from hot showers. It's also the BEST make up remover ever!!!

I would show pics of how bad my redness used to be but people would call me a liar and say I was sunburned when I wasn't. I had days when it literally looked like I had a red mask on. My skin is so even now, it instantly takes away inflammation. I just love it so much.
