Ingredients to Build your Routine Around
I am 35 years old with two kids. I have dry / normal skin. My top concerns are fine lines & wrinkles, preventing aging, dullness, and dark circles. When I started my skincare routine, all I knew was that I started to notice fine lines & wrinkles and wanted to buy new products for “anti-aging”. After a lot of research, here are my Top 5 Ingredients with proven benefits for 30s Skin: 1. Retinol Retinol is a powerhouse for wrinkles. It is a synthetic derivative of Vitamin A. It alters the behaviour of aged skin cells. It smooths skin texture, enhances radiance and treats aging. Retinol can be irritating to skin, so build up your tolerance gradually starting with a lower percentage and only 1-2 days per week. DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Cream Murad - Ready, Radiant, Retinol SKINCEUTICALS - Retinol 0.3 SUNDAY RILEY - Luna Sleeping Night Oil If you need an alternative to retinol because you have sensitive skin or you are pregnant or breastfeeding, bakuchiol is a good plant-based all natural alternative to retinol or rosehip oil is high in Vitamin A. HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Phyto-Retinol Serum The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil 2. Vitamin C A potent antioxidant that helps reduce skin inflammation, irregular pigmentation, and promotes healthier collagen production. It neutralizes free radical damage and great for AM routine. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Time to Wake Up Duo SUNDAY RILEY - CEO 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum VERSED - STROKE OF BRILLIANCE Brightening Serum 3. Exfoliate / AHAs Exfoliation is about boosting cell turnover. You should do it twice a week. Use different acids like lactic acid and glycolic acid. Build up a tolerance. You can use toners, serums, or creams. Kate Somerville - Liquid ExfoliKate Triple Acid Resurfacing Treatment SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum 4. Peptides Peptides preserve and boost collagen production. Peptides are short chain amino acids that act as building blocks for proteins such as collagen. It improves the appearance of firmness and wrinkles. Extensive research supports that peptides improve skin function and appearance. The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' OLAY - Wrinkle Correction Serum with Vitamin B3+ Collagen Peptides PAULA'S CHOICE - Peptide Booster 5. Hydration In your 30s your skin tends to get dehydrated. Hydration will plump up skin. Add a hydrating toner, facial spray, hyaluronic acid serum. The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 **BONUS** SPF Never forget you sunscreen ☀️
Quick visit to the Farmacy🍯
I’ve been stoked to try this brand because I love alllll things honey, so this little set seemed like the perfect intro! Sadly, I’m not overly impressed by any of the 3 items. FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum we’ll start here because I’m so stinking bummed about this. Upon first use, I noticed that the dropper is broken, and I have the most difficult time getting the serum out of the jar. I’m definitely not going to be able to use the whole bottle, simply because I can’t get it out. The little bit of serum I am able to use, I don’t love. It stings my face for quite a while after applying, and I can’t really tell if there have been any results. I think I’ll stick with SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment for a similar chemical exfoliation. FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm this was my first foray into a cleansing balm and I’m so sad that they only gave me enough for one cleanse! I don’t feel entirely qualified to give a review of it, but I did enjoy my one use!! FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask I’ve tried this out a couple of times and it has a pretty wild sensation! Whenever you apply it, it feels more like a honey, but upon adding to the face, it turns into a cream and gets warm. Honestly so fun! I have felt like my face was hydrated and refreshed after each use, so I would purchase this one again!

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 🆘

FARMACY HONEY POTION MASK REVIEW
the @farmacybeauty Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask was a surprising fav in 2020 this face mask is made with glycerin & honey, which is great for hydrating the skin. because of its soothing and hydrating properties, this mask would be a great addition to supplement your skincare regime with during the colder months. i can see this mask working for all skin types but i think those with dry skin or a dull complexion would especially benefit from this mask! this mask is an interesting one because it warms up after application - essentially you apply this mask and massage it for 1-2 minutes as it slowly turns into a white cream consistency. then after 10-15 minutes, you wash it off & are left with supa soft, supple skin. i feel like it's incredibly noticeable how glowy my skin looks the day after i apply this mask from my personal experience, i find that you don't need to use a whole lot - a thin layer is enough to see visible results & i think that if this is applied too liberally, i can see how the warming sensation can feel uncomfortable for some for $38 for 1.7 oz, i think this mask is priced fairly reasonably for my personal budget. it's a mask that i saw a visible difference when using & i think it would be a great mask to use before special events (when those are allowed again). i also think it's the perf mask to use before applying makeup because of the way it smooths, softens and evens out skin tone! would definitely repurchase :)
Warm and cozy 🌞🍯
This is a warming mask that will bring all the cozy feels!!💛 At the time of application, you rub in the mask until it is spread evenly over your face, and it turns into a frothy white cream. While doing this, it gets activated and begins to warm! It has Vitamin B and Antioxidants in it, which is supposed to hydrate, renew skin, and leave a glowy and fresh feeling! This has definitely worked for me, after I use it, my skin feels refreshed and soft. It is a perfect end to a busy day! Relaxation time 💛FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask

My top 3 products for GLOWY skin ✨
These 3 have been my ritual for hydrated, glowy, happy, healthy skin !!💦☺️💗 It all starts with creating a smooth canvas... BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - LOTION P50 PIGM 400 This product truly keeps my skin happy. It has evened out my texture, closed comedones while brightening! This formulation is targeted at brightening and its main ingredient is niacinamide follow by some AHAs + BHAs🌼 Then something to brighten dull skin... MAELOVE - Glow Maker My favorite Vitamin C product to date!! You truly notice the difference within days of use and it has lightened up some tough dark spots. I love the watery formula as it allows for a really smooth and luscious application. It features Vitamin C + Vitamin E + Ferulic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid for a boost of hydration. Plus the price can’t be beat 😝 Finally a moisturizer to lock all the magic in... FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya The glow this moisturizer gives you cannot be beat! You will wake up in the morning with your pores seemingly filled and an appearance of really smooth skin. I love wearing this during the day time too for a subtle dewy no make up look. The ingredients I’m excited about are Niacinamide, Sodium Polyglutamate and 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid!! Not to mention is smells heavenly 🪴
Keep going! It will happen! 💕
I know when you first start your skincare journey it can be so incredibly overwhelming and discouraging. Especially when you drop a lot of money on a product that sooooo many people love and swear by and you just don’t see any results. Well let me tell you! No matter how amazing a product is, it’s going to take time. It doesn’t always take months upon months but you’ve got to be consistent and make sure the products you are using are right for you. YOU. It may take trial and error but you will find what works for you. I have been sticking to a routine for 2 months now. Before that I just used different products here and there. My results you see are a combination of the following products being added into my routine: A good cleanser currently: HERBIVORE - Pink Cloud Rosewater + Tremella Creamy Jelly Cleanser The Ordinary - Matrixyl* 10% + HA I use this ever single day. A good vitamin c serum currently Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum A retinol/ vitamin A serum currently Mad Hippie - Vitamin A Serum A good daytime moisturizer for combo skin like boscia - Revitalizing Black Charcoal Hydration Gel FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream Mad Hippie - Mad Hippie Face Cream Niacinamide serum or powder currently NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% The Ordinary - 100% Niacinamide Powder And a good exfoliant 3x weekly Currently using Mad Hippie - Microdermabrasion Facial I alternate these am-pm just depending on what I think my skin needs most at that time. I do not ever use these all together. I also use some masks a few times a week and those definitely vary. Just keep researching, learning, and trying things. You will find what is going to work best for you. We here on Cherie can tell you if a product work for us but no one but you can tell what’s going to give you the results you want. Just keep going 🧡 You got this!

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
Farmacy; mini brand review
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

Post-Halloween Skincare Tips 🎃
🎃With Halloween coming, I wanted to share some of my favorite make-up removing products and skin savers! I have sensitive combo skin that is highly acne prone, especially when it comes to makeup. 🌙 Very Cherry Clean Cleansing Balm $34 for 3.4 oz Cleansing balms are one of my favorite discoveries since starting my skincare journey. They are amazing at removing make-up, dirt, SPF and oils from the skin in a gentle way. My favorite is currently Very Cherry Clean by Farmacy which does the job and also has Vitamin C in it for brightening. You’ll want to follow this with a regular water-based cleanser but this is a great start when you’re done with your Halloween look for the night because it will melt it all off. When you begin to rinse, it turns into a milky texture and then when fully rinsed, it does not leave any residue. It also has a nice light cherry scent! 🌙 Oil-Free Eye Make-up Remover by Neutrogena $7.10 for 5.5 oz Although I use cleansing balms which of course do remove make-up, I always lean on this to get rid of any excess around my eyes. It is gentle and I’ve been using it for probably 15 years. This can be used on your face if needed. I’ve seen it do damage to a full face of face paint in college, although I would recommend using the cleansing balm FIRST, gently massaging it around and then going in with this if needed for any heavy eye looks that are being stubborn. This is my go to and I will always repurchase. 🌙 Healing Ointment by CeraVe $12 for 5oz When I’ve done something to my face like a full day of heavy heavy make-up and I know it’s going to be mad, I love using this as a nighttime moisturizer. This has Hyaluronic Acid and Ceramides so it’s packed with hydration. This has never made me break out and is truly an all around skin saver. I use this on my face, lips and any dry spots on my body. I feel like my skin is always happier the next morning with this product. I’ve purchased this for multiple people and will repurchase for myself over and over again.

How to moisturize OILY skin? | Favorites🥰
Finally here comes my favorite thing to talk, best moisturizers for oily skin! I am a combination now. But I use to be a oily skin for years and years and years. Maybe because of climate that i moved to a colder place or I changed my diet or even aging, I am now a combination that is oily in T-area and forehead and dry on the cheeks. As an oily skin before, I was always struggling moisturizing my face. I feel like all products are making my skin more oily. I have tried many moisturizers for my oily skin and none of them ever worked for my oily skin. And I preferred it stay dry without any moisturizer rather being oily. I was wrong. Oily skin comes from dehydration and unbalanced natural skin oil. A great place to start is to moisturizing because if you stripping your skin, your skin would actually over produce. It can be really daunting when having oily skin and it is hard to figure out how to balance it. Today I want to share some of my favorite moisturizers I really love for oily skin. I also recommended to my oily bffs and they love it. First of all, FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer The consistency of this is very WET. Nearly watery in my opinion. I normally use it at night after washing my face. This is the only product I use in my night routine when my skin was oily. Next morning wake up, I’ve noticed my skin has looked more supple and hydrated and some of my deeper lines have been less pronounced. One thing to notice when using this is be sure to use the scoop that comes with it and in the time frame it states until it is bad as it is a natural based product. Elizabeth Arden - PREVAGE Advanced Anti-Aging Serum This can be used day to night based on your preference. This one is more like a moisturizing serum. It is very light weighted and it is also good for normal to dry skin if you happen to have drier skin. And it has anti-aging formulas. I’ve been using this for about a year now and have had noticeable positive changes. I was blown away by how effective this product was. It is less advertised as many luxury skincare product. But it is definitely one of the top ones. It is so innovative and I was supper impressed by how moisturized and soft my skin became after a while of using it. This is an excellent product. However, if I was unable to take advantage of sale prices in Sephora which is 20% off , I could not justify the retail price. Spending nearly $200 on a small serum is not acceptable for me. But other than the price, this is an extremely great product. All in all both are my empty bottles and I did made second purchase. Highly recommanded you girls give both a try.
Happy Farmacy Friday 🌻
Happy Farmacy Friday 🌻 ⠀ I thought I would shine some light on this duo that I have been incorporating into my routine this week. ⠀ 🌻 Honey drop is a moisturizer that has been in my collection for months but hasn’t gotten nearly enough love due to all my attention being in daily greens. Now that it is empty it’s honey drops time to shine and boy have I been loving it. Honey drop is a light weight gel cream that moisturizes, hydrated, and softens my skin. My favorite part is the cupuacu butter beads that melt into your skin leaving it so soft and smooth. FARMACY - Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer ⠀ 🌻 Sleep Tight has been in my collection for months and hasn’t been touched honestly because I didn’t know how to use it. Do I use it with a mositurizer? Do I use it as an overnight mask? Well here’s how to use it! It can be usedduring the day or over night. Warm a small amount in your hands and apply to skin as a night moisturizer/overnight mask. This will give you a firmer and more evenly toned skin. It includes a plant based retinoid alternative which I love as it reduces the look of fine lines on your skin. It gives my skin the perfect boost of hydration when needed. Definitely need to get my hands on the full size. FARMACY - Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm ⠀ What’s one Farmacy product that you need to purchase in a full size?!

MY MOST USED “NO FAIL” AM ROUTINE
The products you see have been products I’ve been using time and again for two years, around the time I got serious about my skincare life. These steps I never skip although I have added others or tried different brands. I will say again that I have used a more expensive version of Hyaluronic Acid and while it truly felt soft and comforting to my face, I don’t feel this is where my high dollars need to be spent. INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser best cleanser around! You can even leave it on longer and use it as a mask! This helps target dull, uneven textures, dark spots and pores. It’s a gel like texture. I am all about products that brighten my skin. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner next up is to tone and what better with one that will hydrate, soothe and protect your skin with the antioxidant coenzyme Q10 and Hyaluronic Acic! Plump that face up! I like to splash just a few drops of water on my face first then come in with Co-10. All we can do to help seal that hydration 💦 THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Then comes HA to really lock in that hydration. So may find it hard as people claim it can be “sticky” or “tacky” but I go right it after spraying my Co-Q10 and do a quick rub and then immediately tap it in. Then let it completely dry. If you don’t, you can have your following products pill, and believe me, that’s not fun! I believe everyone should have HA in their routine. There are so many variations out there at many different cost points but if you do your research and are comfortable using what works for you, go for it. Mine costs me $6.80 a month. I use it both am & pm. FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry depicted in the picture as the cute little 🍒 is VCB. I am currently out and my order is taking much longer than I’d like. But I have probably used almost 10 different brands of vitamin C (in comments) and I’ll still be goin back to Farmacy. I love the light scent and I had seen results pretty quickly, never any side effects. TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream I have a handful of creams I do adore and I could really probably spend less than dear ole Tatcha, but oh I do so love this cream. It just makes my face so happy. It’s a bit richer but my mother who has oily skin loves it! If I am hanging inside - tbh that’s 90% of my life - I do a light amount and then follow up about 10 mins later with sunscreen. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I do wear sunscreen indoors although I’m never near direct light. Life of a migrainer! 🤯but I figure one can’t aver be too careful. Plus I have ones open unfinished from the summer. But it is my stance that, yes, you should weat sunscreen indoors. It’s your best line of defense! Unseen Sunscreen makes me feel as if I have nothing on! My most used, never fail AM routine! ❤️ @cheriefam 🍒
Shop Sephora - Favorite Serums
I could go on and on with so many serums/treatments but I figured I’d cover just the basics. To me, personally, I feel a good skincare routine should have vitamin C & retinol in it. The retinol I use is from Medik8 - Crystal Retinal and hands down is the best I’ve ever tried. I also feel a routine needs Hyaluronic Acid in it and you can’t go wrong using Niacinamide either. First up I always apply a toner after washing and INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner $34 has been my favorite since discovering it over a year ago. I love how hydrating it is. This just leaves my skin feeling calm and refreshed every time I use it. I always keep a mini in my purse which is wonderful during the hot summer months. 😰 THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum $7.99 Hyaluronic Serum is always my next step. I want to keep my skin super hydrated and lock that hydration in! I’ve used a handful of HA, some on the pricey end and while I can feel a difference, I don’t feel this is where I need to spend a large amount of money on. I feel more money needs to go into the targeted areas of treatment (vitamin c and retinol). The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% $5.90 I skipped out on this for a few weeks after I had been using it for a full year and let me tell you, I could see a difference. My face just looked dull. And I had been doing everything else except keeping up with my Niacinamide. Once I added it back in my skin responded favorably. It can be a bit “soapy” so I have to just let it settle a bit before moving too quickly onto the next step. But I really find it essential in maintaining a balanced face. FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry $62 Ok, again, I have a personal beef with Farmacy but I gotta say I’ve tried a lot of vitamin C’s out there and this one has been the best. I’ve used three bottles and been out for awhile now and really miss it. I’ve been using Perricone MD - Vitamin C Ester Serum and am not impressed so far. Personally I love the light cherry scent of Farmacy. Perricone has little to no scent so that is always a plus too. But I really did see changes with Farmacy so I will most likely go back. If you have any questions about any products I have not listed that you are considering purchasing let me know. I have tried out a lot or may know someone to direct you to that can answer them. Also, I HIGHLY URGE YOU TO DO YOUR RESEARCH! Please don’t just purchase something based off what I use as it may not work for you. Put in the time to do some leg-work and research the product. Anytime I am considering purchasing a product I always check out a few sites for reviews (not just the brands as they are bias) and look into the ingredients. Cherie is one an amazing source! The reviews on products are growing by the day! Much love 😘🍒

Is there anything more satisfying than an empty?! Especially an eye cream.. I feel like you use so little at a time that it feels like such an accomplishment to polish one of these babies off ✨ I recently finished my FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry I really liked this product, it was a nice consistency and soaked in quickly. I doesn’t smell like cherries, like I think some people would assume.. which is fine by me as I don’t like anything heavily scented near my eyes. I’m not sure it provided the brightening effects it promised but it did keep my under eyes hydrated, protected and looking rested. This little guy goes for $58 for 15ml, I don’t know if I would repurchase this at full price but if there was a deal I would probably snag one. Do you use eye creams ?! 👀
I have been enjoying this eye cream , it’s super hydrating and leaves my under eyes moisturized and ready for makeup . It contains vitamin c and cherry to help combat dark circles and dryness. I definitely will continue to use this product daily as it claims are true FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry

“Honey” oil? 🤔👀
FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum FARMACY - Honey Grail Ultra-Hydrating Face Oil ⚡️my skin type: sensitive eczema and acne prone ⚡️what the product does: resurfaces skin & moisturizes ⚡️what makes it worth it: natural ingredients ⚡️ingredient highlights: buckwheat honey ⚡️what the experience is like: the glow serum is nice but the honey face oil is sticky and never seems to fully absorb. also i do think the face oil broke me out ⚡️in full transparency: i was sent these products as a gift. i didnt love the face oil but i think the glow serum is quite nice! give it a try if you like natural ingredients
🌍Eco friendly skincare packaging = the future
Glass packaging in skincare really is the wave when it comes to sustainability! Glass jars reduce the quantity of plastic waste created by the beauty industry, and I’m for it. I love repurposing glass jars to store other items like jewelry, homemade creams and candle wax! Something Youth to the People does that I find amazing is they sell a large bottle that you can refill smaller bottles with. My mini is now a travel must for me, and instead of purchasing again and again I just refill it! 🍀🌴☘️ I also think it’s an amazing cleanser so it’s a win-win.

I’m a Farmacy newbie so I decided to start with their Mighties Kit to get a feel for the brand. 😊 First off, I love the jars that 3 out of the 4 come in & am also pleased with the amount of product given their small size. 👍🏾 I’ve used the Honey Drop moisturizer so far and it’s wonderful! The hype is real, y’all. I’m going to try out both the Honey Potion mask & Sleep Tight this evening. 🍯 Hope everyone is having a good week. Thank goodness it’s almost Friday! 😎
FARMACY-Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer
I know I’ve talked about Green Clean so much that you guys are probably annoyed by now but I don’t care because it’s the BEST cleansing balm ever 🙌🏼 if you still haven’t tried it, then I highly recommend running to Sephora and grabbing one. Or put an order through online. I promise it’ll be worth it ☺️
FARMACY-Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm
I haven’t changed my mind about farmacybeauty green clean. It is still by far the best cleansing balm I have ever used and definitely a favourite skincare product! It’s very similar to banilaco but I find that this doesn’t feel as greasy on my skin. I also really enjoy the subtle fresh, citrusy scent 😍 anyways, look at that texture tho!
