There isn’t a lot from Farmacy’s Skincare Collection that I haven’t loved and that love extends to the new Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer that was introduced a few short weeks ago. Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer is contains a Triple Hyaluronic Acid Complex as well as tiny cupuaçu butter beads which moisturizes skin and aids in retaining that moisture.
I already use and love Farmacy Honey Potion Warming Face Mask so, trying out this new moisturizer was a no brainer. I didn’t even have to try it to know I’d love it and that’s exactly what happened on first use, I fell in love.
Here’s my review and thoughts on the formula!
I wasn’t so sure that trying this in the Summer was a good idea. Honey, cupuaçu butter, Hyaluronic Acid, it seemed like I was setting myself up for shine and oil even though I’m drier. But I dove right in anyway!
This arrives in a small glass jar that holds 1.7 oz of product. It comes with a metal spatula just like the Honey Mask and the lid is magnetic so after you use the spatula you can slap it on the lid and it’ll hold it in place. I can’t tell you how many plastic spatulas I’ve misplaced. I lay them down and they fall into a crack in time somewhere. I love I can use this, wipe it off, and just lay it on the lid and it sticks like magic!
As the for the moisturizer, it’s just as lovely as the packaging.
This is a water-based gel light yellow cream with tiny cupuaçu butter beads that are visible upon opening the jar. I had some reservations about those beads as I felt sure they wouldn’t burst and I’d have them sitting on top of my skin but they do in fact burst and absorb into skin. The cream starts out as a creamy gel but when it hits skin it thins out and becomes more water and instantly absorbs. At first it felt a little slick for daily use but I noticed within moments of absorption the “wet” slicker feel disappeared and my skin felt very smooth and very well hydrated. I think it’s rare to find a moisturizer that not only visibly hydrates right away but also one that retains that moisture throughout the day. My skin remained very soft through the entire day and my makeup looked more even and smoother because of this.
Farmacy formulated this with their Echinacea GreenEnvy Honey which is a natural humectant that attracts water and retains it. It also contains Royal jelly which contains nourishing emino acids as well as propolis as well as a Triple Hyaluronic Acid Complex. It’s a fantastic combination of ingredients that work wonderfully well on my drier skin leaving it smooth, soft, and well hydrated but never greasy, shiny, or oil.
As I mentioned before, many of the Farmacy products I’ve tried I really enjoyed and the Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer is no exception. It’s a welcome addition to their skincare line up and works beautifully as a daily moisturizer under makeup to keep skin moist, smooth, and soft throughout the day which in turn makes your makeup look great.
I liked this one and I’m quite happy to add it to my daily skincare routine.
Anyone try it?
