Soak Up All Those Manuka Honey Benefits With Wild Ferns

I didn’t grow up with a ‘beauty’ mum who was into make-up and manicures but she did make sure to always take care of her skin, something I’ve adopted as an adult.

As someone who has sensitive and dry skin (what a combo), I’ve tried a number of products over the years to try and keep my skin feeling hydrated and smooth throughout the day. Through much trial and error, I’ve managed to figure out what works best for me:

  • Drink lots of water
  • Don’t wear too much make-up
  • Wash my face every morning and night
  • Use products that hydrate my skin

When the Wild Ferns Manuka Honey range came across my desk I was excited to dive right in because I’ve read so many articles about all the hidden benefits manuka honey has for your body (both inside and out). I also have a girlfriend who swears by the Lanolin range so I felt confident in life testing Wild Ferns. Well ladies, this range did not disappoint. I’ve been using it for the last few weeks and my skin has been feeling all kinds of flawless. Definitely more hydrated than I expected and not a breakout in sight (!), I’ve bought into the well deserved hype of Wild Ferns.

Check out the products we’ve been using and what a few of our resident beauty babes thought about the Wild Ferns Manuka Honey range.

What did our beauty testers think?

Our three beauty testers all have different types of skin and the results across the board have been fantastic. Worth every penny, the Wild Ferns range gives your skin a top-end pampering for a reasonable price. A few little steps and your skin starts reaping all the wonderful honey rewards that leave your skin feeling smoother, fresher and more hydrated than ever!

Maggie, oily skin:

I gave up on having a skincare routine when I had my last bub because life just became a little too hectic however after testing out the Facial Wash and the Purifying Toner, I’ve easily slipped the products into my morning routine. I was really impressed with the Toner specifically. Other products I’ve used in the past have made my skin feel tight and sticky after use but this one easily absorbed and helped make my skin feel nice and soft. I’ve also been using the Facial Wash in the shower while my conditioner sets so it hasn’t added on any extra time to my morning which I love. All in all, I’ve really enjoyed using these Manuka Honey products and I’ll definitely keep picking them up when these run out.

Heather, sensitive skin

I’ll be honest, I was nervous about using these because it feels like my skin breaks out if I even think about switching up my skincare routine but so far, the results are good! I’ve been religiously using the Lip Care every morning and my lips are staying hydrated for much longer than the coverage my usual lip balm gives me. The Replenishing Day Crème has been absolutely amazing at leaving my skin feeling fresh and smooth all day long and I like that it easily absorbs and there is no sticky residue left on the surface. I’ll also happily take all of those honey benefits too! I’ve already been raving about them to my friends so I definitely recommend you try them too.

Helen, dry skin:

Here’s my top tip: don’t use too much of the moisturiser, you don’t need it. I was overdoing it the first few days and found my skin wouldn’t absorb the product properly but once I scaled back how much I was using, everything settled into place – I was just a little over excited. After using the Manuka Honey range for the last few weeks, my skin feels smoother, cleaner and hydrated for longer. I used to find with other products I was trying that by the time the afternoon came along, my skin would dry out but so far, this hasn’t been a problem. I’m also really enjoying using the Eye Serum, the Hand Cream and the Night Crème so much that I’ve finally adopted a night time routine – less than 5 minutes and my skin is nice and soft for the rest of the night.

So, overall we are loving the Wild Ferns Manuka Honey range for its top-end results and affordable price point. Check out the range over at Wild Ferns and add a few of their skincare goodies to your daily routine.
