Today I am finally able to review the Farmacy Honey Potion Face Mask, and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you! More formally labeled the ‘Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask with Echinacea GreenEnvy’, it’s a mouthful to actually spit out. Not to worry though, as the long name is about the only thing I hate. This is the first real product I’ve tried from the Farmacy brand, and I am over-the-moon impressed with the ingredients and results.
Product and Ingredient Breakdown
The Farmacy Honey Potion Face Mask is a warming mask that is meant to nourish and revitalize the skin, bringing through its youthfulness and restoring texture. This face mask, as well as all their other products, are made up of only naturally-derived ingredients and are free of any harmful chemicals. Typically, I am not fussy with all natural vs chemical brands. As long as the ingredients are stunning and not 100% rubbing alcohol (kidding of course), I am there. The main active ingredient is the brand’s own invention of Echinacea GreenEnvy Honey, which is a special ingredient made only by the bees that live on their farm. A few other notable ingredients are honey, essential b vitamins, and glycerin. Basically, all the ingredients you’d want in a nourishing and brightening mask!
I finally purchased this in October when the Sephora VIB sale hit. It’s a bit pricey at $56, but after using it and seeing results, I realize it’s actually not pricey at all and I shouldn’t have waited to buy it. This mask is freaking excellent. If you’re like me, and were or are debating the purchase because of the price tag, do it. You can thank me later (I hope).
I had my doubts about this guy from the beginning after reading several reviews from my favorite bloggers, stating that it did take some time to see results. Basically, I wasn’t expecting much for the first week. Alas, the beauty of this world is that everyone is different, and I saw results immediately after first use. I was so shocked! My skin looked so much brighter and had a great texture, and the results only got better with more use. The warming sensation was a little hard to get used to at first. I don’t mind it now because it’s really not too noticeably warm, and I’ve gotten used to the sensation. I find that the warming does makes me feel like I have an itch on my face, but the mask only has to stay on about 10 – 15 minutes. It is absolutely perfect for those cold winter months!
I used this for about a month straight and three times a week like the product suggests. Typically I would use it every other night, so sometimes I would use it four times a week. Currently this product is still in my nightly routine and I love it! My skin is glowing from night and until the next morning, and my texture has greatly improved. The smell is great and the consistency is thick like honey. It actually feels like you are putting pure honey on your face which is sort of fun! Do make sure you get all your baby hairs and whispies out of the way though, as they will stick to the mask. I like to wet my hands a little, and then slick back my hair a little before use!
Now, let’s not forget the packaging aspect. The packaging is my absolute favorite of all time. Really. It is so cute and I can’t wait to be able to use the jar after I am finished. The metal spatula it comes with is sturdy and durable, and you won’t lose it! I can’t recall the amount of times I’ve lost a little spatula (btw, is that what we call it?). The top of the Honey Potion Mask is magnetic, so the metal spatula stays perfectly on top of the product! Maybe one of my favorite things ever. This is definitely the expensive and luxurious packaging that make the $56 worth it.
Who This Would Be Good For
Everyone! I really cannot think of anyone that wouldn’t benefit from this warming mask. Obviously if you are allergic to honey, then steer clear. I will say this does make my skin itch a little, but not in a way that my skin is irritated. I think because it’s a warming mask that has some tingling property to it, it sort of stimulates my skin and makes me feel like I have an itch on my face. Nothing to dump the product over though. If you like the smell of warm Echinacea tea with honey, then you’ll love this! If you are looking for a good mask for your money that brightens and boosts your skin’s texture and radiance, then this is definitely for you. Aren’t we all looking for that? I mean really…
“Why did you wait so long to purchase this Emily?” That’s really all I have to say. Do grab this mask at your local Sephora or on their website (linked up top and below). My skin has only gotten better from using this mask, and I look forward to using it in my routine every other night. You just feel so good! I can’t explain it. Thank you Farmacy for creating such a brilliant honey mask. I will definitely be purchasing again once my pot runs out.
