Farmacy; mini brand review

Mallory
Farmacy Beauty has been one of my favorite skincare brands at Sephora for quite some time now. I’ve tried about half of their products and for the most part I’m really happy with them. FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser
- Amazing for oily skin! A really simple gel cleanser that gets all the dirt and sebum off the face. Foams up really well without stripping. Mild scent. FARMACY - Deep Sweep
- An absolute must if you want to look into acne treatments. It has a water consistency that absorbs well into the skin. It helped reduce acne, appearance of pores, and inflammation. It does kind of smell like mouth wash though... FARMACY - Dew It All Total Eye Cream
- This did absolutely nothing for me. It’s just a hydrating eye cream. It’s not worth the 30 some dollars I paid for it. It’s also hard to get the last little bits out of the container. Not worth the price. FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer
- It is a very lightweight gel moisturizer but it didn’t blow me away. I remember being super underwhelmed with this product and I stopped using it halfway through only to pick it up later down the line and feel the same way. There are better on the market. FARMACY - Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask
- Did nothing for me FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask
- Very hydrating and very fun! It’s a thick mask that warms when rubbed into the face. If you have dry skin you’ll love how nourishing this is. FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm
- I absolutely love this for removing make up. It has a little bit of a slip to it but it rinses off really well and doesn’t leave your face greasy. It gets all the stubborn eyeliner and mascara off easily. FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya
- I love this for oily skin! The gel formula is very hydrating and sinks into the skin without feeling too heavy. Works great under make up! #CheriePartner

Spa Day Essentials
Here are three products I got earlier this year from Sephora that I thought I would my updated thought on!! 💜@CAUDALIE - Instant Foaming Cleanser caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser I’ve used this up so much! It’s so good and gentle on my skin. It foams up but it isn’t stripping so I can use this even in the morning without feeling dry. I would definitely repurchase this cause I think I could use this at any time of the year! 💚fresh - Vitamin C Glow Moisturizer freshbeauty Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow Face Cream I’m trying use this cream before it gets really cold here since it is more lightweight! Love it as a day cream since it’s so light but still feels occlusive. Definitely a great night cream for oily skin too! I don’t think I would repurchase this right now since I want to try other skincare, but definitely a nice cream that makes your skin glow. Plus it smells like candy which I love but probably not great if you have sensitive skin haha 💜FARMACY - Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask @farmacy Bright On Massage Activated Vitamin C Mask This mask is nice, my skin feels really soft after I use it. It goes on purple and then when rubbed in, it turns green which is pretty cool. I think my overall complexion looks more even and the texture is smoother since its a clay mask. It didn’t irritate me but I don’t think I would recommend this mask to those with sensitive skin.

Eco-friendly skincare 🌿
For reference, my skin is oily and acne-prone, and my main concerns are acne and hyperpigmentation. I think the phrase “clean beauty” can be dangerous because there aren’t any standards for what constitutes “clean,” so a lot of companies are just trying to capitalize off of it. However, I do do research into how sustainable and environmentally friendly certain brands are, whether or not they’re “clean” brands. For those of us who love skincare but also want to be conscious of how our habits impact the environment, it can be difficult to find brands whose values align with our own. A lot of brands skirt the question of sustainability, or greenwash their products with designs and buzzwords that make them seem more eco-friendly than they are. Farmacy actually has a section on their website about their commitment to sustainability, saying that they do things like partner with organic farms that use sustainable methods. I know that they partner with beekeepers in upstate New York for the honey that they include in their products, and they also partner with a small farm in California. I appreciate their efforts to support local farmers who farm sustainably. In addition, their packaging is made with paper that’s certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a non-profit organization that sets high standards for responsible forestry. This means that the paper used in Farmacy’s packaging comes from forests that are managed sustainably. The inks used on Farmacy packaging are also based on naturally renewable raw materials (like soy). Last, all their jars are glass and made from recycled glass and are recyclable, as long as you peel off the label first. As far as I know, their plastic containers (like for Bee Clean, Clean Bee, and Green Clean) are also recyclable; just check your local recycling rules to make sure you follow them. As for the products themselves, all are cruelty free—because animals are part of the environment too! Some mini-reviews of the products seen here: FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser This is a lovely gentle foaming cleanser. It doesn’t strip my skin at all; the honey and hyaluronic acid leave my skin feeling clean and moisturized. The scent is beautiful, and a little goes a long way. I think this one is worth the price. FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow SerumI haven’t cracked this one open yet, but I’m super excited to! I just have too many other acids open at the moment. FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask I bought this full size after trying a sample size and loving it. The warming sensation is so luxurious, and it’s deeply moisturizing. FARMACY - Better Daze Ahead CBD Moisturizer This one has grown on me! It’s a thick, luxurious cream that helps a lot with my dryness from tretinoin. However, I wouldn’t pay $68 for it (I won this full size in a giveaway). #CheriePartner

Updated Review
FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya was dropped almost a full year ago. My first impressions were high. I thought this was a hit and would be a great choice for any skin type. I’ve finished the jar and can say that is no longer my belief. WHAT IS IT? Daily Greens is an oil-free + silicone free lightweight gel that contains a blend of hyaluronic acid and phytonutrients (chemicals found in plants). • Paraben Free • Phthalate Free • Mineral Oil Free • Cruelty Free SPECIAL INGREDIENTS: Moringa Seed Extract + Moringa Water - purify and refresh Papaya Extract - provides gentle exfoliation Hyaluronic Acid (4 Types) + Polyglutamic Acid - powerful hydration Kale, Cucumber + Eucalyptus - superfoods to nourish Willow Herb + Niacinamide - reduce oil production and minimize appearance of pores SKIN TYPE: Normal, Combination, Oily - (I’D SAY OILY & COMBO) HOW TO USE: Use both am and pm as last step in skincare routine PRICE: $38 1.7 oz Enter code: KATHERINE20 at checkout and save 20% each time you shop! (Support $ save w/my beauty @blendedbeautyblurbs) MY EXPERIENCE: As I said, at first I thought I really was going to like this gel-like moisturizer. I’m a normal skin girl and typically can get along with any moisturizer. Unfortunately this left my face “feeling tacky”, I could just FEEL it on my skin and I didn’t like it. To the touch it wasn’t but it still felt that way. I tried a smaller amount and would get the same results. It worked fine with makeup I personally just didn’t like the feel of it. I don’t quite understand why but I think my face just didn’t care for this texture. I’ve used this type of moisturizer before - SUNDAY RILEY - Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream is a wonderful one I enjoyed and had no issues with. From my research and reading reviews I feel this would be a great moisturizer for those with oily skin as it has been a clear hit for them. I think if you have dry skin this isn’t going to provide you the moisture you like, even though it’s got four types of HA. I personally love a rich, hydrating cream. Farmacy has a great range of moisturizers to choose from and I’ve been able to try them all: FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer - a good option for all skin types but may not be rich enough for those looking for a deep moisturize FARMACY - Better Daze Ahead CBD Moisturizer - perfect for all skin types. One of my faves FARMACY - Honey Halo Ultra-hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer - for normal to dry. Dry skin lovers dream! * I have a review of all the moisturizers on my page except Honey Halo which is to come soon. What’s your FAVORITE moisturizer? Which one do you repurchase time and time again? I’ve got several more moisturizer reviews coming your way! Stay tuned 👀 Much ❤️ my 🍒 skinnies

JANUARY 2021 : boxycharm review
the other day, i had the pleasure of receiving my first-ever boxycharm subscription box! i may be a little late seeing that the february box is already under way, but below i will be giving my first impressions on the products i received for january. i hope you enjoy! #Bali Balm - sweet orange & coconut lip balm[products]#[FourStars] this lip balm is really nice! it has a great scent and does not sit heavily on top of the lips. it isn’t the most moisturizing lip balm i have used and quality-wise it is pretty average, but i will happily keep this in my purse for on-the-go. FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya this moisturizer is so amazing and i’m very excited to use it more! it has a nice light fruity scent. it immediately absorbs into the skin and feels my face feeling hydrated without it being sticky or overly dewy. i have decided to incorporate this into my daily morning routine so keep your eyes peeled for more on this one! #Avant - Bi-Phase Hyaluronic Acid Rejuvenating Micellar Water[products]#[ThreeStars] i am not an enormous fan of micellar waters to begin with as i feel like they don’t clean my face at all, but i was eager to use this as i’ve never heard of the brand before. it has a light almost coconut scent. the product does separate in the bottle. it removes all makeup apart from waterproof eyeliner and mascara quite well in my experience so far. i will likely use this when i am in a rush to remove makeup but i probably won’t use it every day. #Violet Voss - Olive You Forever Palette[products]#[FiveStars] this palette is so pretty! the shadows are pigmented and blend very nicely, and the glittery shades apply so well. i can imagine this palette is perfect for green/brown/hazel eyes for both day and night looks. i am likely going to use it to create a look or two then give it to my mom as the whole colour scheme is perfect for her. tarte - Maneater Mascara this mascara is pretty good! it is a little clumpy but it certainly makes my sad little lashes visible. i can see myself using this on its own as well as with a full look. it is not waterproof and does transfer on the lid a little. i am so happy with everything i received and i’m super excited to continue to use all of these products. i hope you guys enjoyed my little review! #cheriecreator

Take a peek inside my Skin Cabinets
Since my husband decided to use the guest bath I have claimed both cabinets....and all my products still don’t fit in them!! I’ll share my bathroom sink area in another post, along with my mini fridge and backup shelf. My fingers are tired from tagging all the products right now 🙈 Let me know if there are any you’re curious about. I believe most products you can find already reviewed on my page. But if there is one not posted about, let me know and I’d be happy to share my thoughts with you. Some of my must haves are: Farmacy Beauty- Honeymoon Glow, Better Daze Ahead & Cheer Up Indie Lee - CO-Q10 Toner and & Brightening Wash Medik8- Crystal Retinal & HYDR8 + B5 Caudalie - Radiance Serum Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Youth to The People - Superberry Mask, Energy Facial The Ordinary- Niacinamide & Hyaluronic & the Facial Peel Elemis - Suerfood Mask Many of these have been repurchases. If a product is sitting out on my counter or in my cabinets, I’m enjoying using them. I have baskets of products that didn’t work so well for me but I keep them for friends to try or to create fun texture art. It’s taken me at least an entire year to gain the collection I have. I had subscribed to many subscription boxes so a good majority of products came to me that way. I haven’t received PR in a long time and the few items I did receive were from some small companies. I don’t mind receiving PR/gifts I just am very picky about what I will use so sometimes the offers don’t jive with them. Let’s see your skincare cabinet ☺️ @CreateOnCherie @CheriePick

Reviews of 3 eye cream: trouble shooting for your own needs
①for moisturising 💦 FARMACY - Dew It All Total Eye Cream $38 / 15ml This one is good at maintaining moisture, suitable for dry skin, or winkles.  The heavy and thick body of this eye cream really need patient massage for fully adsorption.  Not recommend to oily skin, not good for dry skin!! ②for dark circles🐼 CLINIQUE - All About Eyes Rich Eye Cream $33 / 15ml This eye cream has gel-like texture and is really watery and easy to be adsorbed! Would recommend people always having dark circles like me. Well, you can’t really depend on eye cream to remove the dark circles. But at least, this one could release part of the pro, make to glow after staying up for the whole night!  ③for puffy eyes🤩 LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye Illuminator Youth Activating Concentrate $70 / 20ml This eye cream claims to have caffine, great for dealing with puffy eyes. This eye serum is liquid-like and very easy to apply. Good for all skin types!! It has a special applicator and it’s really great to be used as massaging eye area. Most important!!!! It does eliminate my puffy eyes!!

Asking for tips/suggestions!!!
The Ordinary - Retinol 1% in Squalane haven’t used it for a long period of time to give a review. But there are times i would apply this at night and my skin is feeling soft like a baby’s butt. The way i integrate this product in my routine, is that i would use this only as my active and the rest of my skincare is gentle and basic. Cerave hydratjng cleanser, kiehls calendula toner, then this serum, and finish it with a nourishing cream such as drunk elephant lalaretro whipped cream! I know retinol can be very drying which is why i used the moisturizer that has the most beneficial ingredients. I got myself two bottles thinking i would go through this quick, but i thought wrong. Which is why i started using it on my neck every day, i have some noticeable lines that i would like to get rid of. i would buff it with the cerave lotion, and apply a few drops on the palm of my hands and apply it on my neck and chest. I only use this once a week, ive learned it the hard way and used so much actives at once that my skin became hella sensitive. Any suggestions as to how i could benefit more to this serum? YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Tonerno ratings, because i haven’t used it yet! I ended up buying the smaller bottle of it, because for now i’m finishing up the drunk elephant aha/bha serum before i could try this product out. Please give me tips on how to use it, how i can incorporate it in my routine, should i just not have bought it at all? Lol 🆘

Dropping Honey 🍯
Coming at ya with another moisturizer review. It’s a sleepless night so what’s a girl to do but talk and binge on skincare! 🤪 FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer has been apart of my skincare cabinet for just about three years now. It was the first moisturizer I tried of theirs and really enjoyed it. Since then they have come out with two new products, their FARMACY - Honey Halo Ultra-hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer being my preferred choice. What is it: A lightweight, hydrating gel-cream moisturizer that nourishes the skin. Helps with dryness, dullness, uneven texture and loss of firmness and elasticity. Best for: All skin types Highlighted Ingredients: Farmacy’s own proprietary honey blend - hydrates and nourishes the skin. Triple Hyaluronic Acid - moisturizes, supports firmness and elasticity Capuacu Butter Beads - skin softening and moisturizing Price: $45 for 1.7 oz As you can see in the photos this is definitely a light moisturizer. It sinks easily into my skin leaving no residue behind. I absolutely love this texture even though I typically favor a thicker, richer cream. I find this easy to work with my other skincare products as well as my makeup. No pilling! It does have a light honey scent which Farmacy states is a natural fragrance. This comes with a metal spatula that magnetically 🧲 attaches to the lid which helps for sanitary reasons. No finger scooping needed! I can’t say I saw all the benefits beyond hydration and moisturizing but I definitely enjoy the butter beads and the hyaluronic acid in this. It really is a hydrating cream for a lightweight formula. I feel like Honey Drop and Honey Halo can be your summer and winter moisturizers. Honey Drop being your lightweight summertime formula whereas Honey Halo offers just a bit more of a punch being a great option for those dry winter months. At $45 it is a pricier moisturizer. I do find I only need the amount shown to get full coverage. A container usually lasts me about two months. Bonus, the jar is recyclable! ♻️ As always, Farmacy is cruelty free 🐰 Have you tried any of Farmacy’s moisturizers? If so, which do you prefer? When I first started using Farmacy they were still a bit green but becoming more and more talked about. They had a pretty simple product line to choose from. In the three years I’ve been using the brand they’ve grown so much, not only in popularity but also in expanding their products. ❤️🍒

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!

My experiences with Farmacy
I’d like to talk about two recent additions to my skin care routine. These are both good clean products and I recommend them, but I don’t plan to repurchase. First, I’ve tried FARMACY - BEE CLEAN It was recommended to me by a sales person at Sephora. This cleanser is great, but I think it’s a little too stripping for my dry blemish prone skin. I’ve been trying to overcompensate with other hydrating products, but my skin has felt a little rough. I think this is a great cleanser for combination skin or oily skin, but if it’s on the dry side, find something else. To try and bring some much-needed hydration into my skin, I’ve also been trying the FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask I think it’s pretty pricey for what you get, and I just didn’t get the skin softening effects I was hoping for. It’s not the miracle product I was hoping for, but it is a nice warming treatment and again, I’d recommend it for combination skin or oily skin. I did discover a new serum that’s been giving oh skin more glow and hydration. I will post about it next time. Thanks for reading!

My first #farmacyfridays showcasing a few favorites of mine from the brand - & because I am super excited for their Honey Halo moisturizer that is coming soon! Right now Farmacy is running a 25% off site-wide sale if you use code: STOCKUP. This is the perfect time to “stockup” on all of your Farmacy faves! 💚 I really love their cleansing balms - 𝒢𝓇𝑒𝑒𝓃 𝒞𝓁𝑒𝒶𝓃 & 𝒱𝑒𝓇𝓎 𝒞𝒽𝑒𝓇𝓇𝓎. Their cleansing balm is probably their bestseller & what really put the brand on the map! It effortlessly removes makeup, sunscreen & debris. These cleansers don’t irritate my eyes or cause any burning sensation, but I do find my vision to be a tad bit blurry if it does get in my eyes - but nothing intolerable. They are definitely on my top three favorite cleansing balm list! 🍃 𝒟𝒶𝒾𝓁𝓎 𝒢𝓇𝑒𝑒𝓃𝓈 is an excellent daytime moisturizer - it is oil free so it is perfect for those with oily / combo skin types. It has a gel like texture and sinks into the skin beautifully. 🍃 𝐻𝑜𝓃𝑒𝓎 𝒫𝑜𝓉𝒾𝑜𝓃 has quickly become a favorite mask of mine - I honestly don’t know what took me so long to try it, but I am so glad I received it in a Boxycharm a few months back! This will be perfect for fall & winter as it gives a gentle warming sensation; leaving the skin hydrated & supple thanks to all of the antioxidants in the formula. 🍯 Let me know down below what your Farmacy Faves are! 💚 FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask FARMACY - Very Cherry Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm

Farmacy Beauty 🖤🐝 Fave or Meh?
Farmacy Beauty 🖤🐝 Fave or Meh?
Farmacy Beauty has been a been a favorite brand of mine for a few years now. They pride themselves on their “farm-to-face” skincare as well as contributing to environment sustainability. They are also considered “clean at Sephora”. Cleansing balms are my go to method of make up removal. One of my top 2 cleansing balms is the FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm . They have two sizes for sale at Sephora or their website. A 3.4 oz for $34 or a 1.7 oz for $22. Farmacy claims it melts away make up leaving your skin silky smooth. It has a thicker, solid balm consistency (much like the Clinique Take The Day Off) which is my favorite with balms. I feel like this is really easy to apply without it getting too goopy. I tend to leave my jar in my shower and before I wet my hands or face I take a scoop and apply it all over the face. It does a really good job at getting all my heavy make up off. The only issue I have is it can make my eyes a little blurry but that’s easily fixed with a flush of water. It has no smell that I can detect. I think it’s totally worth the price and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a good cleansing balm to get rid of heavy make up. A new favorite of mine is the FARMACY - Deep Sweep . Farmacy claims its an alcohol free 2% BHA toner that exfoliates, cleans the pores, and controls oil without stripping. I think the only thing I don’t like about this product is the smell. To me it kind of smells like mouthwash. To be “clean at Sephora” it has to have under 1% fragrance so it’s not as bad as it could be but I’m still not a fan. It’s a lightweight liquid that absorbs really easily into the skin. I usually use this right after I cleanse every other day. They say you might experience a tingle with this product but my face is really used to acids and I have not experienced that. It’s yet to make my skin feel stripped or dried out which I’m really happy about. I feel the 2% salicylic acid cleans out my pores and really balances my extremely oily, acne prone skin. So far I’m really happy with it. I feel like it’s really comparable to the Paula’s Choice but doesn’t have that slip the Paula’s Choice has. I would recommend this to anyone with oily skin looking for a BHA treatment. Overall I think Farmacy is a win. I’ve tried the above products, their honey potion renewing mask, honey drop lightweight moisturizer, bright on massage activated vitamin C mask, and dew it all all total eye cream. The only product I didn’t care for was the dew it all and it wasn’t even a bad product. It just didn’t do much for me besides hydration. Like they have not really let me down yet.

Talking about FARMACY: Fav or Meh?
Talking about FARMACY: Fav or Meh?
FARMACY is almost everywhere in IG recently, and nearly all the bloggers I follow will post beautiful pics to recommend Farmacy’s products. FARMACY is famous for cleaning skincare products and features natural ingredients, like honey, which makes the product sound fantastic. FARMACY - Dew It All Total Eye Cream I don’t really like this brand and still wonder why it could be such popular! My first try in FARMACY is their Dew It All Total Eye Cream ($38/15ml). It’s too heavy and hard to apply that I have to give up after trying for a while. Also, the unreasonable packaging design makes it impossible to use eye cream at the bottom. It freaks me out every time! So annoying!! FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask I thought it might be only because the eye cream is not my type (dry skin might have a try). So I got to try the other two best sellers of FARMACY-Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm & Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask. Unfortunately, these two don’t surprise me and not work for me. The cleansing balm smells too chemical, and I worry this could cause pimples. Also, the mask burns my face. Luckily, I only get minimize, not wast too much. Overall, I feel so disappointed with FARMACY that it’s just not the right one for me. It wastes my expectations! 🙁Won’t recommend it! Please keep it away!

So I had a good, simple routine for a long time and my skin was great! Then I moved and now my skin is so much different. I’ve been using tons of products trying to get results but I think I’ve been tormenting my skin and not giving any one product enough of a chance to do it’s thing so I’m trying to simplify. Right now my skin is dry, dehydrated, red and bumpy and my pores have gotten huge and black and icky and I’m really frustrated. I like to think that I’m knowledgeable about skincare but I still have a lot to learn. If you have any thoughts on my current products that would help the most! I have a lot and need a real routine. AM routine: Rinse my face with water. If I’m oily (which isn’t often) I will go in with THAYERS - Lavender Facial Toner but only on my t-zone, my cheeks can’t handle it. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream VERSED - Daily Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum a little greasy but non irritating and only if I go outside. PM: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm only if I wear makeup and spf For cleansers I’ve been using DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser Too Faced - Hangover Wash The Day Away Gentle Foaming Cleanser I also have a sample size of belif - Aqua Bomb Jelly CleanserI haven’t used and sometimes I will VERY GENTLY scrub with fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash I have 3 different toners, I use fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner but it’s started to sting a bit with all the fragrance. I just purchased LANEIGE - Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizerand also GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Tonerwhich I want to incorporate instead. Maybe alternate? I loved FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry but I think it went bad bc it stings so much now. I use PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum every day but I might switch to DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serumthoughts? YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi never switching! other products I own: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask LANEIGE - Cica Sleeping MaskGLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask ORIGINS - Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream I DEW CARE - Cake My Day Hydrating Sprinkle Wash-Off Mask DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream

THE YOUTH MINIS: Full Review! (Part 2)
THE YOUTH MINIS: Full Review! (Part 2)
I already reviewed two products from the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - The Youth Minis Kit plus the brand, please check it out if you want! Here’s the rest of my thoughts that couldn’t fit on the first post. DISCLAIMER: This is just my personal experience with the products and I by no means speak for everyone’s experience. Maybe you love these products, and if they work for you, that’s amazing! If they don’t, I hope you find something that does! But if you haven’t and are looking into any of these products, I hope I can help you make an informed decision. Thanks! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream Contains kale and spinach extract plus hyaluronic acid and green tea to lightly moisturize and balance. This moisturizer has a lot of the same ingredients as their cleanser as far as extracts and vitamins go, and a similar fragrance. It is a really nice daytime moisturizer or moisturizer for oily skin, it feels amazing and it absorbs super quickly. I won’t be repurchasing it since I have a lot of other similar lightweight moisturizers I need to get through, but I’ll definitely use this till the last drop. It’s a really solid moisturizer! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser Contains kale, spinach, green tea, and vitamins C, E, and K to deeply clean without stripping. I have already reviewed this product in my cleansers post, but I think it’s okay to re-emphasize how much I love this cleanser! My skin always looks so nice and clean and refreshed without having that stripped “squeaky-clean” feeling. I have actually already gone ahead and repurchased this cleanser, which is the only reason why I haven’t used up this entire bottle yet. I love it! I’ve finally found the one. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil Is a face oil with a boatload of plant extract oils: maqui, acai, prickly pear, goji berry, sunflower, jojoba, moringa and squalane oils illuminate and hydrate skin without clogging pores and weighing it down. I actually really like this oil but I use it very sparingly, as you can see. I’ve never been a huge oil fan, but if my skin is extra parched, i rub a drop into my hands and then lightly pat onto my skin, or if I want an extra glow in the morning, I’ll tap a teeny bit onto the high parts of my face. I’m not sure if I’ll purchase a full size of this but given how little I use it I have a long time to decide! A little definitely goes a long way so I’m sure if I purchased the full size it would last me at least a year. Overall I think this kit was a great purchase, since I actually found not one but TWO products I’d call holy grails in my new routine! If there’s one brand that’s worth the hype that you’re looking into, this is certainly the one: with their mission on sustainability and inclusiveness, it’s a great brand to support with great products! I’d purchase one of their mini kits soon before they sell out!

Honey-lious Routine 🍯
Honey-lious Routine 🍯
You know I love my Farmacy Beauty products & right here is a fabulous routine! Full of honey goodness 🍯 I start off with FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm (not sure why I didn’t picture it first) to remove all makeup, sunscreen and dirt & debris. I love how gentle and effective this is! I can see my makeup washing down the drain as I go to rinse my face. It’s so easy! Next up is FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser this washes away anything I may have missed with that first cleanse and rebalances my pH level for the next steps. This one is perfect for everyone! It’s got a natural honey scent that I am not a big fan of but I can easily get past that because of the amazing benefits! FARMACY - Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask I love to mask as often as I can. I find when I consistently use masks in my routine my skin responds much more favorably. I love exfoliating and brightening masks. This one does both! It’s a clay mask but doesn’t dry my skin out. Love the brightening effects of this one! FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum once I’ve removed the mask it’s time for my targeted skincare treatment and Honeymoon Glow is my absolute go-to! This has been my lifesaver. The results speak for themselves. I have a timeline photo on my page showing how well this beauty works (before/after). Some have a tingling sensation when applying. It’s never been a bother for me and I do have sensitive skin. So be aware this can happen. A finally FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer Between Honey Drop and Better Daze Ahead, I could survive off Farmacy’s moisturizers! Honey Drop is very lightweight so if you have super dry skin this one might not work for you. Better Daze Ahead is my go-to when my skin is acting up and needs extra moisturizing. They have a new one as well, FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya which I’ve heard those with oily skin love. It’s not for me personally. I find it leaves my skin feeling tacky and almost like it has a silicone feel (which it doesn’t have). For some reason my skin doesn’t get along with this one. So there you have it! A simple routine that won’t do you wrong. Of course you can add toners, (I’d do so after cleansing) other serums and essences (after masking) and oils (after moisturizing). This is a routine I often use 💚 hope you enjoy #CherieCreator ❤️ my@cheriefamily 🍒😘 My apologies for the terrible lighting! I’ve ordered a ring light in hopes for improvement as it’s too damn hot to shoot photos outside 🥵 (averaging 113 temps!) My products can’t be in that heat!
