Check out these six great honey-driven beauty products, including rich face masks and nourishing body lotions that will leave you feeling soft, supple and warm all over.

2. L’Oreal’s Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Honey Night Balm

And since our skin undergoes facial cell turnover at night (skin renewal), this honey night balm makes for a great way to end your night.
