I am an absolute believer in raw ingredients delivering great results if:
a.) Formulated correctly.
b.) Natural preservatives are used for longer shelf life.
c.) They are ingredients found to have benefits for the skin.
Dr. Atif Munir Malik, MD & MD (H), has found a way to formulate 4 raw ingredients that have been proven throughout time to have lasting benefits for the skin and are comprised of my three main product criteria listed above. Dr. Malik is Board Certified in Family Medicine and is also a Homeopathic Physician.
In the raw honey SKIN CORRECTING night balm, Dr. Malik has been able to properly shift his formulation from the REAL Honey Ointment for spot treatment therapy to a facial balm using the same four ingredients of:
1.) Raw Honey
2.) Coconut Oil
4.) Olive Oil
Raw Honey benefits the skin by helping to correct:
1.) Active acne.
*It’s anti-bacterial, properties help to rid the bacteria found within the follicle shaft which harbors acne.
*It’s anti-inflammatory properties help to de-red the skin from sun exposure, rosacea, acne, over consumption of alcohol and post laser treatments.
*It is a natural humectant which helps to keep moisture within the skin.
4.) Uneven texture.
*It has natural exfoliating properties which help to combat dead skin cells delivering an even skin tone.
*It’s natural emollient helps to keep your skin soft and supple, ridding the appearance of harsh wear and tear on the skin.
These five reasons alone from the RAW Honey are great reasons to use this facial balm for your skin benefit but it does not stop there. The three additional ingredients of Coconut Oil, Beeswax and Olive Oil have similar benefits for the skin:
anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-oxidants and moisture-retention.
These benefits indeed make this facial balm a TRUE SKIN TREATMENT.
The most effective area on my face that I saw the greatest results were my eyes. Not only did it help with minimizing the appearance of fine lines, it also helped to brighten the appearance of my eyes making them look more awake as well as help to reduce the appearance of dark circles under my eyes. If you want a great eye treatment balm, this would be ideal.
Using the balm on my face was great for helping to lock in moisture. It served similar to an ointment, creating an occlusive barrier to retain moisture within my skin. This was great for my skin on days that I felt the harsh conditions of the weather were wearing on my skin. The only downside to the balm was the sticky texture I would feel while applying but once when the balm warmed in my fingers and on my skin as I was applying it, the sticky texture began to dissipate as it dissolved onto my skin.
I found an added benefit to this facial balm as I used it. I applied it at night for skin therapy as I slept, I also applied it during the day at times when I wanted more moisture on my skin. I found it to be a perfect primer for that glowing, “dewy” look. Applying it before makeup allowed my makeup to go on smoothly and evenly. It held the makeup in place and kept my skin glowing the entire day. I would highly recommend it as a skincare tip for achieving a “dewy”, youthful look, for nights out on the town or for a special event. I assure you, your skin will look radiant and people may want to know your secret as to why it looks so radiant.
The raw honey SKIN CORRECTING night balm delivers in its name, it is precisely a balm that helps to correct the skin with its various imperfections but I don’t want the name, “balm”, to discourage anyone from using it on the face. Although we may think of balm’s being designed for lips or spot treating small areas on the body only, this balm is designed for the skin on the face. Your skin will receive wonderful benefits from using it on your face and eyes.
A little bit goes a long ways. Warm balm in fingertips before applying a thin layer onto the skin.
Because this product does not come completely packaged with an application tool raw honey SKIN CORRECTING night balm receives 4.0 stars.
