Buttery soft first cleanse
SKIN TYPE: acne prone, combination, dehydrated PRODUCT: Farmacy Green Clean Cleansing Balm This mint green balm packs a punch against all makeup! The balm melts nearly instantly on contact, cutting through SPF, foundation, and waterproof makeup gently but effectively. It is an excellent first cleanse and has quickly joined in my rotation of cleansers. For anyone who has super sensitive skin, it’s good to note that it has added fragrant essential oils (which result in a scent reminiscent of limes mixed with candied ginger) but I haven’t broken out so far while using it. At $34 for 3.4 oz or $22 for 1.7 oz, it’s not the most affordable oil based cleanser, but I definitely recommend giving this cleansing balm a shot!

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 🆘

Come, get the inside scoop. Banila Co I've been using their Pink (original) cleansing balm on a daily basis and I absolutely love it. It's a sherbet-like texture that melts into an oil when applied to the skin. And it does a great job at "melting away" my sunscreen/makeup without stripping my skin or stinging my eyes. It also doesn't break me out, which is a huge plus, given my acne-prone skin. What is the difference between each one, you ask? See below. 💗 Original - for Normal Skin 💙 Purifying - for Sensitive Skin 💛 Nourishing - for Dry Skin 💚 Revitalizing - for Oily/Combo Skin

The Best Makeup Remover
FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm I was never a big fan of cleansing balms until I tried this- I found them waxy and felt that they left a residue that I could never get rid of, so I hadn't really double cleansed before I met Green Clean. Farmacy's Green Clean is what I would say is their signature product. I mean check out that texture - it's actually GREEN! As a brand, Farmacy focuses on clean beauty, so the whole green theme fits. This also smells lovely and green - it reminds me of being outside in the woods! It contains sunflower oil, lime, bergamont and ginger so those lend it a pleasant scent. Packed in a recyclable jar, Green Clean is a balm meant to cleanse off all of your makeup- including eye makeup- and that it does. It even manages not to irritate my sensitive eyes! Let’s talk texture- It stays solid in the jar but once you put it on your skin, it lathers up nicely and leaves my skin feeling clean, but not dry. All without the waxy residue that turned me off from cleansing balms in the first place! I still like to use another cleanser after the green clean, but you don't need to, since it really washes clean. As I am in my late 30s with dry skin, I need to avoid cleansers that strip the skin, so this is perfect if you’re on the dry side. I’m not sure it would be as good for oily skin, but as it rinses clean I don’t think it would clog pores or cause breakouts. I give Green Clean 5/5 stars because this really IS an excellent cleanser. It runs $34 for a 3.4 oz size, which to be honest, is a little expensive. A 3.4 ounce jar lasts me around 3 months, so its still a good value, and on occasion Farmacy sells value sizes which makes it cheaper per ounce. Definitely the best balm available right now!

Favorite Makeup Remover
boscia - MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil this is my favorite cleanser to use in my double cleanse when I’m wearing makeup! Apply to your dry skin and then add water to activate, this makeup remover starts to lightly foam on your skin removing makeup, dirt and impurities. If you’re a fan of oil cleansers, I would put this one at the top of your wishlist! One pump (as shown above in my hand) can remove a full face - foundation, mascara, lip stain - you can put this product to the test!! MSRP $32

MAKEUP REMOVER REVIEW | Farmacy Green Clean
Time for another review! ✨ This time for one of my current FAVORITE products! FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm is marketed as an all-natural cleansing balm that will melt makeup and dirt away effortlessly. Even though this balm turns into an oily-er consistency, this product is recommended for people of all ages and skin types due to its gentle formula. As you can see in the second photo, this a balm product that begins as a solid and transforms into an oil as you warm it up. This is one of the softer balm makeup removers I’ve used and I really enjoy it. As soon as I used this product for the first time I knew that I was going to enjoy it. I’ve been using this product for over a month now and I don’t see myself using any other makeup removers any time soon! The product does not leave any residue on the skin which is a problem I have had with other make up removers. It is an overall wonderful experience to use this cleanser! The scent is very faint but smells natural. It removes makeup thoroughly and VERY easily which is a major win 👍. I have already recommended this product to my friends and they also love it! As for the price, I think it is a bit on the expensive side ($34 for the full size) but if you are a fan of double cleansing I say this is worth it! To have a clean face after a full day of makeup is SO IMPORTANT in skincare and preventing breakouts so this is totally worth it. I was hesitant about the price but keep in mind that a little goes a long way! 😊 Definitely try this one out!

Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway balm
I started using this product a year ago after reading raving reviews about it! it is amazing at removing even the stubborn forms of makeup (aka Mascara ahem)! I never have to take a full scoop of the product. I take half a scoop and apply a little to each of my eyes, each side of my cheek and forehead and then gently rub in circular motions all over for about 10 seconds. When i wash my face after this, all my makeup is off and my skin doesn’t feel irritated at all (I have sensitive, acne prone skin). I don’t use heavy makeup everyday but when I do I don’t feel tired just imagining how hard makeup taking off is gonna be! I used to legit have that fear but now I’m so happy about not having one extra problem! If you’re looking to buy a cleansing balm, I’d definitely recommend this!

Hydrating cleanser 💦🥇
The first hydrating type cleanser I’ve ever used... On my (more) younger days I always used to use cleansers that strip my skin leaving me feeling squeaky clean because I had oily skin and thought that’s what I needed... Moving from the Caribbean to the US my skin type change from oily to a more combination/dry type. I experienced dry spots for the first time: my cheeks would look red and I could see the flaky, scaly patches on them. Watching skincare based YouTube channels (as Beauty Within, skincarebyhyram, James Welsh.... and more) I stumble upon the brand Krave Beauty, and after hearing all the good reviews decided to try a couple of their products. This is the first tube of the Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser I finished (already have two back ups), so is pretty clear I love it... it cleans my skin but hydrates it at the same time, which sounds amazing now that I have a more dry skin. My boyfriend who suffers from rosacea also loves it, it really helps him soothe his flare ups. I recommend this cleanser for any skin type to be honest, anyone would benefit from the skin barrier friendly ingredients in it. It has a gooey/gel type of consistency, and you can actually see the (I guess) hemp particles in it. It’s really a 5/5 ⭐️ for me.
