For the last month, I have been using the Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm, it was my first time using a cleansing balm, and let me tell you I have been absolutely blown away with the quality of this product. To be honest I knew very little about this brand, it looked attractive in the random photos I would see on Instagram of their products, but I hadn’t done any research on it.
Last month, on a Sephora run with my sister (which I had no intention on purchasing anything) I saw this packaged so beautifully and with a big red Best of Allure 2017 sticker on it, I was intrigued, and had to try it. What I learned and love about Farmacy Beauty is that it’s a natural and organic skincare line that is free of parabens, formaldehyde, artificial coloring, and it is not tested on animals. All of the products contain the patented Echinacea Purpurea GreenEnvy, this formula contains anti – inflammatory properties that help protect and firm the skin by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen.
The balm comes in a jar and has a nice plastic spatula to take out the product and not dip your fingers in it so you don’t contaminate this green clean wonder. At first it is a sorbet texture, then when you put it in your hands it forms an oily – melting balm and you put in on your dry skin and massage away all of the makeup. Finally, when you add water it turns into a milky color. At this point I like to wipe it away with a moist towel, just to make sure I get everything off. The scent is light and barely there. I have combination skin, and I don’t feel that that the cleansing balm makes my skin more oily. I do however recommend that if you have acne prone skin to do a double cleanse with another cleanser that will help your acne.
I will definitely keep using this product in the evening to thoroughly cleanse and take off all of my makeup!
