I have to be honest, I never heard of a makeup cleansing balm. I thought all makeup removers were the same.
They either came in a cloth or liquid form. So, I was pretty excited when Farmacy sent this over to me.
My first impression is that the packaging is amazing. It comes in a little green box that actually folds open to tell their story.
If you’re unfamiliar with Farmacy, they’re known for their ingredients. They use only naturally derived ingredients. That’s a huge plus in my book!
This cleanser smells of freshness that’s undeniable. It’s subtle and when it goes on your skin, it’s like a fresh of breath air. It’s not overwhelming so it’s great for those with sensitivities to scents.
It starts off as a balm but as you work onto your skin, it turns almost oil-like. But trust me, it’s not messy.
I’ve tried a lot of makeup removers before. The cloth and liquid forms.
This balm picks up every flake of mascara and every streak of foundation. I don’t wear much makeup to begin with but when I do, I want it all off my face at the end of the day.
Even one little flake of mascara on my pillow the next day annoys me to no end.
Oh, did I mention it also helps wipe away “impurities caused by pollution”? That’s exactly what’s written on the tub and let me tell you, I could feel it.
Even when I don’t wear makeup, I still get that yucky skin feeling at the end of the day. This also works as a nice refresher for when your face just needs a good cleanse.
So technically it does double duty! Or I guess you can say triple because my skin feels so fresh and clean after each use that I don’t feel the need to moisturize.
I don’t think you can get much better than that! I’m all for companies that incorporate ingredients that are good for your skin.
It’s made from natural oils like ginger root and sunflower along with papaya extract (which is great for anti-aging). All of the ingredients work together to get rid of all of that gunk built up onto your skin.
So, the question that I’m sure you all are asking is this: is it worth it?
My answer is a strong yes. And the price isn’t that bad either. For a makeup remover that’s good for your skin and affordable-it’s a definite yes.
Speaking of the price, Farmacy was kind enough to give me and my readers/followers a 20% discount!
