Farmacy Farmer’s Market Kit 😄😐🙁
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!
New Purchases: Insta’s Most Famous Masks 🍉✈️
It’s my birthday so I had a SUPER splurge day at Sephora! Bought a ton of things I’ve been dying to try, including these two masks which I am very excited to add to my mask rotation (I have one for every day of the week now!) GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping MaskIs my first intro to AHA in my regimen and I am a bit nervous about it but this one claims to be very hydrating and gently exfoliating, so we’ll see how my sensitive skin tolerates it! I figured a mask might be safer than a serum to test drive an acid, and I am much more of a mask person anyway. I don’t plan on using as a sleeping mask (at least not initially) until I know my face can take it. I am interested to see how my sensitive skin reacts! SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag MaskI am super excited about this mask! I am always seeking hydration and I’ve heard very good things about this mask, literally when I picked it up the checker at sephora was raving about it so it is certainly a very hyped product. I’m excited to see what results it gives me! These are both the smaller sizes, and the packaging is just adorable! Check in later to see if they’re worth the hype 🤗

Honey Facial Mask
Sharing my love with one of my top mask picks This golden beauty is by FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask and is the most unique experience. It comes out thick, like honey, but as soon as you start massaging it into your skin, it turns into a rich cream. Some people are afraid to try this mask as it warms upon application but let me tell you, it’s a gentle feeling, just a light warmth on your skin. I have highly sensitive skin and have no issues with this mask at all. My face is left glowing and drenched in hydration after using. . Honey Potion is packed with antioxidants. Farmacy’s locally sourced honey comes from their very own bee farm. The bees pollinate the Echinacea Green Envy flowers. I love those flowers! The healing honey, soothing propolis and amino acid-rich royal jelly nourish dry skin and give you that dewy glow. . I have seen amazing results incorporating Honey Potion into my routine a few days a week. My skin always feels more nourished, softer and again, the glow of a younger face. . Honey Potion along with FARMACY - Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask will always be apart of my skincare routine because I’ve seen proven results from a company I can trust. . Have you tried Honey Potion? Is it on your list to try? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this mask! .

Mediocre first impressions... | 💔😔🎭
FARMACY - Coconut Gel Sheet Masks So far on Cherie, I've told you guys about a handful of products that I love and use on a weekly, if not daily, basis. Well, it's time to get into the nitty gritty and give y'all my take on a product I'm not already besties with. I picked up the Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Sheet Mask from Sephora for $8.00 and honestly, it sat in my cabinet for almost two months. I'm really not a huge sheet mask gal, but last night it was finally time to give this one a go. My first impressions: ✨ There's LOTS of product in this package - considering it's meant to be a one time use kinda situation, unless you're slathering it all over your neck/chest area, there's really too much in here for just the face. You could probably squeeze half of it into a little tub if you're looking to stretch your cash and use this as a hydrating treatment more than once. ✨ I 100% have combination skin, leaning more towards the oily side, with some dry patches depending on the week. While I usually dig hydrating treatments (like the Dr. Jart masks), I found this one to be particularly greasy. It's possible my hormones are starting a riot since I'm close to that time of the month, but if not, it's almost too hydrating for me. ✨ Farmacy is hyped up as being a clean, effective skincare brand. I think I need to dive into some products more similar to those I use everyday, and starting off with a type of mask I only reach for once in a while may have caused us to start off on the wrong foot. ✨ I DO love that they're cruelty and synthetic fragrance-free! From what I've read, Farmacy is a pretty natural company that tries their best to make great products for conscious buyers. I'm definitely willing to try some more from these folks, seeing as I'm constantly watching so many of you rave about them. Fingers crossed I can find something that works with my face, but I don't think I'll be dying to pick up one of these masks again. 🤷🏻♀️ Have you used anything from Farmacy? What are some great products you think I should pick up? 💸
FARMACY-Coconut Gel Sheet Masks
A mask that resets your skin!
📌My skin type: Dry to combination. 📌Product information: Spirulina + Microalgae Kale Spinach Superfood Skin Reset Mask ($44 for 2.0oz). This product claims to reset your skin, restores dull and tired skin. Spirulina (rich in vitamin K and B12) and microalgae are combined with their patented superfood technology. This technology consists of antioxidants, phytonutrients, essential amino acids, vitamins C, E, K and minerals, kale, spinach, green tea, alfa alfa. 📌Application: Apply it to dry skin for 10-20 minutes and rinse of with warm water. One can apply thicker layer to more dryer parts of the skin. 📌Product texture: It has a mousy texture which feels like silk on the skin. 📌My Experience: I used it 2-3 times a week and my skin really loved it. I followed it with a vitamin C serum and my normal everyday moisturizer. The best way to remove this mask is with a wet cloth which gives a mild exfoliation as well. 📌Like/ Dislike: I LOVE this product. 📌Would I recommend it?: I would definitely recommend it for dull and dry/combination skin types. 📌Rating of the product: 5/5
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Superfood Skin Reset Antioxidant Mask
AMAZING Moisturizing & Nourishing Mask (Farmacy)
This is by far one of the best masks I’ve found for repairing dry and dull skin. The gel-like formula turns into a creamy white lather as you work it into your face, and heats up in a way I’ve never felt before. It melts into my skin beautifully, leaving my skin feeling hydrated and brighter for days. I’ve tried many things to moisturize my skin, but this is the best in terms of long-term results. When my skin is very dry (especially in the winter), I often leave it on over night for a deeper treatment. As an added bonus, the packaging is beautiful, and the lid is magnetic so I can actually keep track of the application spatula! FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask

FARMACY - Honey Potion 3/5 💮 ——— Claims to hydrate, soothe and revitalize - Hydrate: Yes! / Soothe: No! / Revitalize: Yes Texture - Syrupy honey like which transforms to cream Scent - Wax and plastic Parabens - No ——— I have a love-hate relationship with this mask. It makes my skin really warm, like it’s on fire, which I get is the point but I do not like that feeling and it also leaves my skin really sensitive! It’s red for the longest time after using it. I can’t have it on more than 5 minutes. And I don’t know why because I don’t have sensitive skin! But, the big BUT is that it improves glow and radiance of the skin! So I don’t enjoy using it, and it doesn’t show immediate results but once it does I really like it for it... This is why it is getting a mediocre score. I get why people love it and oh it is a cult favorite but it wasn’t for me. I also have a problem with the smell? Is anyone with me? I expected honey, not this plastic and waxy smell... It improves radiance and it gives me a glow! I felt soft and moisturized but it’s just not comfortable using it. The first time I used it I had it for the suggested time, 10 minutes, and it burned on the part between my nose and my lips so bad I had to wash it off on that part... it wasn’t the best first impression. I find other products giving me similar results which are more enjoyable to use. What I really like though is the consistency and how it transforms from a honey-like texture to a cream when putting it on the face! Not for me though. I can occasionally use it.... or maybe not. I haven’t decided. If I feel a little sadomasochistic maybe. Purchased at Sephora - ~$45 (got the mightiest mini set)
