Honey is nothing short of a natural wonder. Not only does it taste delicious, it can also do your skin a whole world of good! It moisturizes deeply, disinfects the skin to fight acne, and soothes inflammation. Honey contains an impressive amount of vitamins and minerals to give the complexion a boost. It’s also rich in antioxidants and antimicrobial properties, making it a true superfood for the face.

This is why so many beauty brands have infused honey—and other honeybee byproducts like royal jelly and propolis—into their formulas. Observe: from face masks to moisturizers, these 5 honey-loving products will have you buzzing with excitement.

1. Banila Co. Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream, P2,300
This face balm looks and smells just like real honey. Despite its gooey texture, the formula sinks right in. We love it as a night cream/sleeping mask, because the tub is packed with the moisturizing trifecta of pure honey, royal jelly, and propolis extracts. Just apply it before bedtime to wake up to bright and hydrated skin.
