Introducing MAC Naked Honey Body Wash ($19.50), one of the new body care products being released with the upcoming collection (arrives June 11).
Now close your eyes…
Picture the pages of a Pottery Barn catalog. A tranquil bedroom, dark, except for the flickering light from dozens of honey-scented candles. In the center of the room — a beautiful four-poster bed with fresh, soft cotton sheets covered in lavender and jasmine petals…
That’s the way I think MAC Naked Honey Body Wash smells to me — warm, soothing, and a touch sweet.
In the shower, the gel lathers into a rich foam that rinses completely away. It leaves my skin feeling lightly hydrated and smelling sweet like honey for hours.
It contains something MAC refers to as bio-converted honey, moisturizing waxes derived from lavender, narcissus and jasmine flowers; as well as the extract of the blue agave plant (the same plant used to make tequila, mezcal and pulque) to moisturize and cleanse the skin.
The body wash joins a few other body care products in the 13-piece Naked Honey collection like a skin salve ($18.50), a hand and body cream ($22.50) and a fragrance (called Creations, $22.50).
I haven’t smelled any of those yet, but I hope they smell just like the body wash because this stuff’s downright heavenly.

You might like MAC Naked Honey Body Wash if…
- …you’re a die-hard MAC devotee and love their seasonal body product releases,
- …you enjoy lightly sweetened scents,
- …you want a body wash that leaves you feeling soothed and relaxed when you step out of the shower,
- …your skin needs light moisturization.
NOTE: For a $20 body wash, the 3.4-oz. tube that Naked Honey Body Wash comes in is pretty small, fitting almost entirely in the palm of my hand. It’s a definite splurge, but a little does go a long way…and that counts for something.
Speaking of body washes…
I wish MAC would release a Naked Honey pet shampoo because Tabs needs a bath like Heidi Montag needs a clue.
He got back from Hotel Cattyfornia smelling like a bouquet of musk, rabbit pellets and cat butt, yuk!
He doesn’t know it yet, but there’s a bath in his immediate future.
Have you ever tried to bathe a cat? It makes going to the dentist seem like a day at the fair!
