🍒CHERRY EYE CREAM FOR DARK CIRCLES🍒
What is it:FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry —$45 Brightening vitamin-c eye cream Key ingredients: * Vitamin-c/ peptides/caffeine: smooth appearance of fine lines * Hyaluronic acid/acerola cherry: rejuvenates/reduces appearances of dark circles Color/consistency: This is a very lightweight tinted pink cream/gel How to use: I use a pea sized amount and pat gently all over the eye area daily Results: My dark circles have been seeing some improvement with this cream! I have been using it for about 3 weeks so I am hopeful it will yield better results with continued use.

What were your results with this product?
Is Farmacy Really Farm Fresh?? 🌾
Me: dry-combo, currently acne prone, sensitive or very sensitive For my first dive into Farmacy products, I purchased the FARMACY - Farmer's Market Kit so that I could try a variety of their bestsellers. Overall, a good tester kit for your money with adequately sized samples! (Much bigger than the Glow Recipe sample sizes.) From favorite to least favorite: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm This was my first ever cleansing balm and I fell in love 😍 Your skin feels so smooth and moisturized afterwards. As a dry skin person I often used this as a single cleanse and didn’t notice any breakouts. I knocked off a star because it contains fragrance.... but actually I LOVE the smell... I just worry about my sensitive skin. The next balm I’m trying out is the GOOD MOLECULES - Instant Cleansing Balm FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya This was a nice lightweight moisturizer. I didn’t like the smell quite as much as the balm but it was fine. It did leave a bit of a shiny sticky residue for me but that went away when i added oil on top. Overall, not enough moisture for my skin right now, but I could see myself loving it in the summer! The next lightweight moisturizer I am trying is the CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask I wanted to love this one, and about half the time I loved it, but about half the time I HATED it. When it was good, it made my skin feel so smooth, hydrated, and brightened. When it was bad, it BURNED my skin, horribly at times. I guess it depends on how my skin barrier is doing? Probably not a repurchase since it was so unpredictable on my sensitive skin. I love honey and would love to hear thoughts on other honey masks to try! FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry My least favorite of the group, this one was just too sticky for me. I also didnt like the smell... it was almost sour smelling? Idk, just not for me. I’m now trying the Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serumfor my next vitamin C product. I also now purchased FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry and it is too soon for a full review but right now I am liking it a lot! It is not sticky, and does not have the funny smell of the serum. What do you guys think?? What Farmacy products should I try next? I’m eyeing the FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizeror the FARMACY - Honey Halo Ultra-hydrating Ceramide Moisturizerand the FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serumand maybe the FARMACY - Whipped Greens: Oil-Free Foaming Cleanser With Moringa and Papaya!! Let me know what you think!

Ole Henreksen delight
This is my ultimate favorite mask by Ole Henreksen. This is the Baby Phat Facial . Your face literally glows after using it . All it takes is 15 minutes. IIt’s best when applied with a brush because it has a sticky consistency. You apply it , work it in with the brush . As you are doing so the product turns from pink to white . That is the what you want . It doesn’t sting . The only thing is the 50! Price tag . I was introduced to this product when it was featured in my Boxy Charm beauty box
The gift of good skin!
For Christmas, I made my sister a new skincare routine! She has combo acne prone skin with some sensitivity and redness, she also complained of some dark circles around her eyes. She currently uses terrible products and is pretty lazy when it comes to skincare so she doesn’t even wash her face everyday! I tried to design something simple, affordable, and easy to keep up with (e.g. mostly drug store products) but also an effective starting point for her skin needs! How did I do?

My favorite k-beauty skincare products: Tonymoly face masks ☺️ This face mask claims to maximum hydration for your skin and to transform dull and tired skin into healthy, moisturized skin in as little as 20 minutes. This face mask targets dry skin & dullness. This face mask is wet & feels very refreshing when you put it on the face. I really like this face mask because it smells like roses, which smells so good & it moisturizes my skin. I also love this face mask because it doesn’t fall off my face unlike other face masks. Whenever I put this face mask on my face, I feel very relaxed & refreshed. I decided to try this because I love anything with rose, so I wanted to try it. Once I used this, I fell in love with it. I also like how there’s a variety of scents for the mask as well. After using this mask, I saw instant results with moisturizing my face & brightening my face. This product retails for $3 at Urban Outfitters, which is kinda pricey for a face mask, but I love it, so I think it’s definitely worth a try! I would rate this face mask a 5/5 😊 TONYMOLY - I'm Real Rose Sheet Mask

What did you guys mask with to celebrate the midpoint of the week? I reached for this Origins one right here - it was such an easy choice, this beautiful guy was just speaking right to me. I have 2 of these masks as you can see, the first one I had bought right when it came out, and the second one I must’ve bought after just one use of my first tube 😂 I knew I couldn’t risk running out of it! 💕 This super fruit mask comes in a gel yet gritty consistency, and it is made to be a burst of hydration for your skin - it’s made with Dragon Fruit and vitamin C to help boost radiance to improve skin’s clarity. Crushed walnut shell exfoliators gently exfoliate & refine skin’s texture, and Tangerine, Lemon & Blackcurrant leave you feeling refreshed (taken from origins website) 💕 This lovely mask is made withOUT: Parabens, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Paraffin, DEA, Polyethylene Beads, Animal Ingredients* *except cruelty-free Honey & Beeswax. Talk about clean beauty! 💕 I love, love, LOVE the smell of this mask. It is just such a lovely pick-me-up kind of smell 💕 As previously mentioned, this is a gel mask that has crushed walnut shells in it to provide with exfoliation on top of the brightening benefits 💕 I like to leave this guy on for something like 45 minutes 💕 It’s an effort washing it off and I’ve noticed that a spot on my face I thought still had some mask on it, was actually my bare skin, but it didn’t feel that way because this mask is SO hydrating! The brightening benefits are so real, but a huge plus that I have to mention and that this mask doesn’t mention enough, is the way it leaves my skin SO incredibly moisturized and soft. 💕 I advise you to use a cleanser or tone twice after washing this mask off - there’ll be a bit of pink residue!
ORIGINS-Dragon Fruit Brightening Superfruit Mask
FARMACY - Coconut Gel Sheet Masks A coconut water infused sheet mask formulated with purple broccoli and plant-based collagen for healthy glow. It is for all skin types and targets dullness, uneven texture, loss of firmness and elasticity. This mask is vegan, cruelty-free and gluten-free. The texture is thin, gel-like which is protected by blue mesh covering. Blue mesh is removed while applying the mask. I have used this mask 4 times. I apply the mask for 15 minutes. It shapes well onto my face and doesn’t slip. After taking the mask off, I pat the products into the skin. My skin feels hydrated with a nice glow after using it. It has lots of essence and feels very moisturizing. I will definitely repurchase this. It is my go to mask whenever I need instant brightening. The mask is for $6 but I think it is worth it. I recommend this to everyone especially ones with dry/dehydrated skin and who wants instant glow and hydration.
FARMACY-Coconut Gel Sheet Masks
I wanted to share about the brand Pink Beauty Organic Skincare created by the beautiful Christals Makeup I recently discovered. I ordered the Pink potion pore zapper, which is now called pink potion pore refiner. It's a combo of Rosewater, Himalayan sea salt & witch hazel designed to decrease sebum production & balance it out. I also ordered the whipped kokum butter under eye cream in the smaller size, which is fantastic it smells so good, it's lightweight and feels really hydrating under my eyes. The last item I got was the 1 oz. of the matcha exfoliating detox mud mask. This mask smells amazing again, another lovely product it's made with organic chinese matcha. Feels so refreshing on the skin, I loved having this mask on, it was such a treat. The rosy cheeks cream cleanser is such a gentle hydrating cleanser, smells so fresh and light. Not harsh at all on the skin. I LOVED how gentle the kokum butter microdermabrasion scrub was on the skin. It has a lovely scent to it. I wasn't aware of how great kokum butter was in your skincare. It has antibacterial , anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties that make it ideal for damaged skin. Kokum butter is especially a great alternative for those with sensitive skin. Its ability to rejuvenate damaged skin cells is a killer way to combat wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. It is also non-comodegenic so it will not clog the pores. Her scrubs and creams come in three sizes which I feel like is so convenient and handy. I definitely recommend checking her products out if your on the market for all natural organic skincare at an affordable price point. ♥️

best sheet mask i’ve ever used
I’ve tried a fair few sheet masks throughout the years, but this is my ultimate favorite go-to sheet mask! This farmacy face mask is so so hydrating, without the post-sheet mask stickiness and/or messiness! (Like when the mask slides off your face, or the serum drips everywhere). This mask literally fits my face perfect and ALWAYS stays in place!!!! That alone makes it such a better sheet mask than most others I’ve tried. It is a coconut gel sheet mask, and is a jelly-like texture, but still firm enough to not fall apart from handing it. It’s literally such a lovely texture, and feels so cooling on the skin. It comes saturated in a serum that is so hydrating to the skin, it doesn’t irritate me or anything. It deeply nourishes the skin and leaves a nice glow from all the hydration that literally lasts me at least 24 hours. It is easy to apply and comes with a little mesh cover to help you pull it apart. This mask is only $6 too, which is absolutely worth every penny. I would recommend this to any skin types, as we all love & need hydration!!!! They also have a brightening sheet mask which I haven’t yet tried, but definitely will be soon as I love this one so much. Farmacy’s products have amazing ingredients too which obviously makes you feel better about what you’re putting on your face :) 5/5 stars!!! FARMACY - Coconut Gel Sheet Masks

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
