I must have been hiding under a rock lately because it seems I am one of the few people that have not come across Farmacy at Sephora. Did you know about this brand or were you in hiding with me?
The packaging is beautiful and well done but very deceiving as the line looks very similar to Burt’s Bees at first glance. In anticipation of winter, I decided to pick up one of their best sellers and put it to the test – Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer with Echniacea GreenEnvy Honey. The formula promises to be a long lasting, lightweight moisturizer that combines Enchinacea GreenEnvy Honey Triple Hyaluronic Acid Complex and Cupuacu Butter Beads. It is designed to promote a vibrant, glowing complexion and deliver powerful antioxidants to help nourish the skin and create a smooth, hydrated finish for all skin types.
The first thing that really stood out to me was the magnetic spatula that attached to the top of the container so you’ll never lose it! Genius! I love the simplicity and organization of that but also that there was a spatula and I didn’t have to stick my fingers into the jar and make a complete mess. You can just scoop out what you need, give the spatula a rinse and stick it back on top of the jar. I don’t know about you but this made me feel better about the price of the product. The hexagon glass jar is also adorable and has this luxurious look and feel to it which is a nice touch. The product itself does have a light fresh scent to it but nothing overpowering at all which is refreshing in a moisturizer.
I have to admit it… I am pretty impressed with the Honey Drop moisturizer. I would challenge that is it not as lightweight as I expected though. It is not a super heavy formula, but it is not lightlight either. For this reason, I find that I use it more at night than I do in the mornings. I appreciate that I have not had any issues with my pores being clogged or any breakouts either which does sometimes happen for me when I have a heavier moisturizer.
One other thing that I really love and appreciate is the Farmacy website, it is basically a resource library. For each of their products, they break down exactly what it is in their products and what each specific key ingredient’s purpose is. I love the detail that goes into describing their products. They also explain the importance of protecting against blue lights and the different sources of blue lights.
If you’re looking to make the switch to a cruelty free skincare brand, this would be a perfect one to check out. Also, Farmacy is donating $1.00 from every honey product sold through December 2017 to City Growers to aid in the development of the Bee Education program. All these great and positive feels from Farmacy make me feel comfortable with this product being at the price point of $58.00 at Sephora.
Have you had a chance to try any products from Farmacy yet? I would love to hear your feedback and experiences. This is a line that I want to explore more and get to know better so please tell me anything you know about them!
