Hey Honey is one of those brands that just doesn’t get the amount of love they deserve on social media. I know they have a hardcore cult following and I swear I would be this cults leader and RULE THE WORLD!
Too far? I think I have been watching way too much American Horror Story on On Demand.
I first heard about this brand from Birchbox. I got a sample of the Hey Honey Trick or Treat Concealer and immediately became hooked. In this day and age, when everyone on Instagram and YouTube is highlighting the beejeezus out of their under eye, it is refreshing to find a concealer for the everyday woman because it’s creamy, doesn’t crease and looks natural. I don’t know about you, but this pretty sums up my concealer needs.
I actually received a deluxe sized sample of their Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum simply for answering a survey they sent to me (SWEET!). According to their website, it says that it is supposed to be a moisturizing serum that can be used alone or under your moisturizer, but to be honest, my favorite way to use this serum is as a primer. It leaves your skin feeling smooth, silky to the touch and blurs out my pores. My foundation literally glides on and once it dries down it has a velvet like feel, but does not pill under my makeup, like some other primers with a similar effect do.
The one downside, in my opinion, is the price. $45 for 1 oz. of product is pretty high. To compare, Benefit’s Porefesional has .75 oz. of product for $31 and Smashbox’s Photo Finish Foundation Primer costs $36 for 1 oz. of product. All these products have a similar finish, so there is a bit of a price hike, but considering that it can double as a moisturizer and a primer, maybe you can justify it.
Also, you really don’t need a whole lot of product. My sample is .34 oz. and I only need a pea size amount to cover my T-zone completely and then tap the rest on my laugh lines and crows feet. I’ve been using this consistently for about 3 weeks now and still have more to go before it runs out.
Right now Hey Honey is including the serum in a few of their holiday sets, so it might be a good time to gift yourself or a loved one the look of smooth, silky skin.
Till next time, my friends!
