Trick and Treat: Celebrating Halloween with Hey Honey’s CC2 Cream

Have you heard of Hey Honey? If not, I’m about to change your life. Well, ok, at least your beauty life! Hey Honey is a skincare brand that uses the science of honey in all of its products. They are the first “complete skin care line infused with Honey and/or Propolis.” I didn’t know this but using honey on the face dates back many and many ages, all the way back to Cleopatra!

Why Honey?

First and foremost, it’s important to note that honey is a natural preservative, it never spoils. Second, honey contains many amino acids, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Honey has more naturally-occurring antioxidants (substances that reduce the negative effects of free radicals) than almost any other botanically/naturally derived source.

You probably know that honey is known to have heath benefits, people use it orally for things like sore throats and or colds. Well, honey has been found to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties as well, and it retains moisture to the skin. With all of these benefits, it’s no wonder that Hey Honey decided to create a skincare line around this natural sweetener!

One of Hey Honey’s goals was to create skincare that fits into your busy life. Between working, blogging, reaching my fitness goals, and attempting to have a social life, I am busy, busy, busy and I don’t always (read: rarely ever) have time to put makeup on. I usually just stick to skincare, which is why I love tinted moisturizers and CC creams so much, because they kind of sit in both categories. So, when Hey Honey reached out about trying their Trick and Treat CC2 Cream, I was SO excited! I couldn’t wait to try it.

What It Does

This product is called the Trick and Treat CC Cream because it both tricks and treats the skin.

Trick: “Enjoy the complete and natural skin-perfecting coverage, use it all over the face and under eyes.”

Treat: “Feel the benefits of an all-day, active moisturizing cream.”

It truly does both of these things and I am absolutely obsessed!

My Review

The second I tried it, I knew that this CC Cream is a game-changer. I was absolutely shocked by the coverage it offers. I placed a few small drops of the cream on my face, one on each cheek, one on forehead and one on chin. Then, with just a few swipes of my Artis brush, bam, my entire face was covered, just like that. I have tried many different tinted moisturizers, cc creams, foundation serums, etc, and they all require me to use at least two layers. However, with Hey Honey’s product, I only applied one layer and I was out the door. It was truly unreal.

Not only did the product apply flawlessly, but it lasted for a long time too. I wore my CC cream under my mask, through the wind and the rain, and it didn’t budge. I am absolutely in awe of this product and I am so excited to have found it! This full-sized bottle is available at Ulta, so run, don’t walk to their site to get your hands on it. I know I will be buying more ASAP.

A Bonus

Hey Honey was also kind enough to send me a sample of their Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum to try as well. This product is just as incredible as the CC cream! It is described as “A light and luxurious moisturizing serum and makeup primer that replenishes and protects the skin, and improves tone for elegantly glowing skin. Rich moisturizers and nutrients such as silk amino acids provide moisture and silky smooth skin. Suitable for all skin types.” It really does make the skin silky smooth, and I love that it can be just a serum on skincare days or a serum and a makeup primer on makeup days. This product is also sold at Ulta, so I would highly recommend adding it to your cart the next time you’re shopping! Hey Honey has officially sold me on honey-infused skincare and I can’t wait to keep using these products, as well as exploring their other offerings! ♡

Hey Honey gifted me with their products, however, as always, all opinions are 100% my own!
