Good Things Manuka Honey


The Good Things Manuka Honey Facial range/products are said to be filled with nothing but ‘good things’ and if you know me well that exactly what I look for in facial products. I want skin care products that don’t just remove dirt and grime but that also have added benefit for my sensitive, oily & acne prone skin. The promise of ‘good things’ plus honey in one product is enough to get me to dip my hand into the honey jar. 

I’ve been using these products for two weeks now and  I am impressed. The main ingredient in this Good Things range is Manuka Honey, manuka honey is a universal beauty tonic that works well to heal and nourish the skin. Manuka Honey is a potent yet gentle skin care wonder that I believe every woman or man should add to their beauty routine. It works wonders for acne prone, enlarged pores, hyperpigmented and dull skin. Honey is in my opinion God’s gift to all people who have pesky skin.

When I bought the Good Things Manuka Honey products I was in bind. I had forgotten my honey at home and was on the verge of losing my mind. I remembered seeing the Good Things Facial Cream in Clicks and wondering if it would work for me . I would hate to worsen or do anything that would make my skin break out. 

Manuka Honey Creamy Cleanser

Manuka Honey Creamy Cleanser with Royal Jelly and Beeswax  (Hydrate + Balance) ♥ R69,95 Ladies and Gentlemen I hit the ultimate skin care jack pot with this product. I’ve been using it for two weeks and I can already see the difference in the way my skin looks. My skin feels great, it looks hydrated and balanced. A creamy cleanser is great for washing or cleansing oily skin as it does not dry out the skin. It helps manage oiliness and it helps keep your skin balanced. 

The creamy cleanser comes in white tube that dispenses just the right amount of product. You never have to worry about using too much or it being messy. It is a peachy cream colour and it smells almost of shea butter. 

If you have oily skin washing your face with a drying face wash or soap could worsen the skin’s oiliness. Drying out your skin will lead to your skin trying its best to counter that that increasing oil production. A cream allows you to clean and hydrate your face which is what you need. 

The Manuka Honey Creamy Cleanser has Royal Jelly which is rich in Amino Acids. Royal Jelly is a power hormonal tonic which will help with hormonal imbalances that may be causing your acne, dryness, oiliness or just causing your skin to look dull. 

The scientists who worked on this were really focused if you ask me. They added beeswax to the mix, beeswax contains Vitamin A and provides long-term moisturizing, actually locking moisture into the skin. So now you have the healing and antiseptic properties from the Manuka Honey, the Amino Acids from the Royal Jelly and the Vitamin A from the beeswax. It’s a triple threat cleanser that focuses on cleansing and restoring the skin. 

 I love how the cream is working on my skin. I can even use this cream to remove my make up and it does such a great job. Considering this is the first deviation I’ve taken from my natural skin care regime I am pleased with my decision. 

Manuka Honey Refining Scrub Good Things Manuka Honey_-18

Manuka Honey Refining Scrub 

Manuka Honey Refining Scrub with Oatmeal and Sweet Almond Oil (Refine + Smooth) ♥ R69,95 Because of my skin “Issues” I’ve made a point to have a solid ROUTINE  which involves, steaming, scrubbing and masking my face at least once a week. This allows my skin to renew, rejuvenate and heal. Breakouts are sometimes caused by dirt in your pores, I am talking about that extra grime that just hides itself in your pores and makes itself comfortable. Steaming your face allows your pores to open up to allow for a deep cleanse ‘of sorts’. By using a face scrub, you are helping to buff away dead, dry skin cells, revealing the newer and fresher ones underneath.

The Manuka Honey Refining Scrub has oatmeal, oatmeal helps soothe your skin, it has hypoallergenic properties which make it perfect for sensitive, acne prone skin. Oatmeal helps absorb oils and removes impurities in your skin and in addition to that oatmeal are packed of anti-oxidants that fight free radicals which promote a clear , healthy. glowing complexion. I’ve used the scrub twice and although there is a need to take great care not to over exfoliate your skin the natural ingredients in the scrub work well together to produce favourable results.

When used in a well formulated routine this scrub will benefit you and your skin. Like I said about the cleanser  tube is not messy in the slightest and dispenses just the right amount of product. No wastage here yay!  The beads are minuscule, which is good when scrubbing you face plus its slightly creamy to so you won’t have to worry about it being to rough for your skin. As you massage into the skin, you can feel them ever so slightly and it creates a slight creamy foam

I am not a big fan of the way the scrub smells but I wash it off so I don’t really mind it. I suppose its the oatmeal and oil put together.

I am so happy I bought these two products. if you are looking for a good cleanser or scrub I recommend the Good Things Manuka Honey Range. Their products are both affordable and good for the skin.

Thank you for joining me, I hope you enjoyed reading the review. Have you tried any of the “Good Things Manuka Honey” products
