According to Ms. Collette, life can be stressful, and that stress can leave marks on your skin. But her product line hydrates and removes impurities to restore your skin to a healthy glow wIth naturally derived ingredients such as honey, turmeric, and vitamin C. We have identified a few celebrities who swear by these same ingredients for their face. There must be something to them!

The ingredients of the celebrities:

“I have cystic acne, so I use a Manuka honey mask to combat it and hemp oil to smooth out the surface of my skin. I also use a vitamin C serum and black soap, and that’s it.”

It’s no wonder that Collette uses a lot of the same ingredients in her own skincare line. We have tested out a few of Pink Suga’s products at home, particularly the turmeric sugar scrub and the homemade black soap. Let us tell you- her sugar scrub is the truth! 

Collette’s raw organic black soap

As for the black soap and manuka honey, these ingredients are perfect for acne-prone skin without drying you out. The key ingredient, manuka honey, contains strong anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties for soothing irritated skin. It can be on the expensive side if you are purchasing from a natural or health food store. But, we found one brand here on Amazon that we love. Regardless of where you purchase it, it’s important that the product be raw and unpasteurized so you can receive the full benefits. 

Manuka honey can be used as a facemask- use about 1-2 tablespoons of high-quality honey over the entire face, leave it on for about 20 minutes, then rinse it off and pat skin dry. Or, if you don’t want to DIY, try Colette’s homemade facemask with turmeric and oatmeal.
