Best Manuka Honey Face Products

Best Manuka Honey Face Products


I have been a huge fan of Manuka honey since I discovered it in New Zealand, and I already wrote about its benefits; YOU can read the information here. Today I will share a selection of Best Manuka honey face products which you can use to obtain a more hydrated and glowing skin.

Manuka Honey for Skin Care

Manuka honey is rich in minerals and vitamins and is also antioxidant and helps recover the moisture of your skin.


Manuka honey also has anti-inflammatory properties and makes it beneficial for problem skin. Manuka honey does not only nourish, it also heals.

All these benefits make Manuka honey a perfect ingredient in cosmetics as it serves so beauty products are gentle on your skin.

I dared a few times and drizzled raw manuka honey directly from the jar onto my face and also on my hair. The results are pretty good, however I have to admit it can be a bit messy, though tasting the honey when it trickles on your fingers or comes close to your lips is not bad at all, yummy!

Certainly, you should not use any of these products if you are allergic to honey.

I hope you like the selection and please feel free to share your comment or experience on any of the products listed.

  1. Nice, this face cream will be great for my very oily face skin. Yes I am not a girl but I can care for my skin thank you. I have dry and oily skin on my face and reading about these products on this article is actually good for me because this is what I need to resolve this problem. I am okay with your explanation of how each item works and how it can help me attain a glowing skin. My boo will Alayne very pleased when I gather this article and she learns about these amazing products. 

    1. Hi, natural creams and oils are good for everyone and also perfect for combination skin, as the majority of products are okay for all skin types. Glad you liked the products and thank you for writing. 

  2. I have been looking for something that can work on my dry, flaky skin like a mask.  I have no idea which products to use.  You seem to know a lot about these products from the article I read and happy I found someone with so much knowledge.  May I ask which you prefer for flaky and dry skin regarding the mask or mud?  Antipodes Mask or the Rotoria Mud.  Which do you think would work better for my issues?  I really appreciate all the information on your site and now have narrowed it down to two.  Thank you and look forward to your thoughts.

    1. Hi Dorri, both products are good but if you have flaky skin I´d go for the Antipodes as the Roturua mud is more for deep cleansing and detox. Also if you are not used to mud it can dry up your face a little when using it, although you can always apply a moisturiser after. 

      Let me know how it goes. Thank you for writing. 

  3. I love the way you describe the product just squirted on you and into your hair.  I can imagine the luxury and fun.  Honey has been used for millennia for treating all kinds of conditions so I can only think how good it would be for your skin and hair, too.  I especially liked the Wild Ferns Lanolin, Manuka Honey and Royal Jelly Night Cream as I’m sure it would be extremely softening to the skin.

    1. Hi, I agree, the Wild Ferns Lanolin, Manuka Honey and Royal Jelly Night Cream is a lovely product with some great ingredients in it. I love testing raw products on myself and see what comes out, and honey is a staple food for me. Thank you for writing.

  4. I love everything related to honey. I take bee pollen for my allergy, I eat honey with my cheese and I also eat and do a mask of Royal Jelly for health benefit and I even take some of the Manuka honey too 🙂 However, I need some practicalities in my life this is why these facial lotions come in handy 🙂 Thank you so much for your review! Wild Ferns Lanolin, Manuka Honey, and Royal Jelly Night Cream a try because it has royal jelly in it 🙂 I love how my skin is after I apply royal jelly 🙂 

    1. Hi, many thanks for sharing your experience in using Royal Jelly. I am of the same opinion, I love to use raw products for when I can dedicate more time to my beauty rituals; however I also want to have my natural creams handy to use on a daily basis. the Wild Ferns Lanolin, Manuka Honey, and Royal Jelly Night Cream is a favourite of many. I´m sure you will like it. Good day. 

  5. Hi, Marissa,

    Thank you for your presentation of these products.

    It seems like may of the creams that are beneficial have a moisturizing component to them. I know that dry, cracked skin can be quite uncomfortable.

    Over time, the lack of moisture can contribute to that dryness.

    One of the things I have begun to notice in recent years is that of dark spots occurring where there had been no previous problem. Many of the products that are reported to help with this condition dcontain statements about the moisturizing properties they include.

    I see that you have personal experience with some of these. I would be interested to hear what others say also.


    1. Hi Randy, I believe you are referring to pigmentation that comes along after sun exposure and with ageing, since you mention you never suffered of acne. Manuka honey is perfect to lighten the dark spots. Try using the Dr Organic Manuka Honey Rescue Cream, as it is safe to use frequently.  Thank you for writing and have a nice day. 

  6. Hello Marisa,
    Thank you for this review, I have heard of the highly medicinal Maruka honey and its effect on cough and other intestinal issues, now I Know again it works on the skin. I will go with the antipodes Aura Manuka, like you pointed out it has a deep cleansing ability and it is also anti-ageing.

  7. Hi! I really enjoyed reading your articles, especially the ones about breathing techniques. I do my exercise yoga every morning and I forget to add the breathing technique. I tried the Anuloma Viloma Pranayam. Your article about Manuka honey and the products caught my eye, I have never heard about Manuka honey. I am always on the search for natural and organic products. The beauty industry is poorly monitored that is they can use words like green, natural organic without having to prove anything hence I am always on the search and read a lot.  I did not know Rose water can be used for the treatment of dry eyes, I use it to refresh in the summer and spray it on my face and neck. You have good tips, advice, and solution on quite a few topics that blend together making the reader want to know more. Thank you.  I will surely continue visiting your very well informative site. 

    1. Hi Patricia, many thanks for writing and I am glad you like the information. I suggest you include breathing with your yoga exercise as you will find them so beneficial. When I´m short of time I prefer doing only breathing, as I find it relaxes you and gives you energy at the same time. Have a great day.
