Farmacy is a “farm- grown botanical” brand that I’ve been steadily hearing about for a while now. I knew it was sold at Sephora, and I’ve read great reviews about their masks, so it’s been on my list of brands to try. When the chance arose to test out their Perennial Skincare Discovery Kit, featuring four of their products that cover aspects of an AM or PM routine, I was so excited to give it a go! I used this set, only these products, for about 2 weeks & I have loved all of the products and how they’ve treated my skin while the weather has been changing and allergies have been attacking me– which always results in flare ups on my face.
One of the best aspects of this set is that it is made for all skin types. Yes, you read that correctly, every product can be used for combination, dry, oily, and even sensitive skin. The whole kit aims to revive dull skin, tackle wrinkles, and combat any dryness- without negatively effecting dry skin. As I mentioned above, I’ve been battling allergies, so certain parts of my face are very dry and irritated, while the rest is the typical oily-combo.
The first step in the process is the New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains which is a dry grain cleanser that foams with water. I always use a separate cleaning oil to remove makeup, but I made sure to use this as my follow up cleanser. Since I’ve been outside and since it’s been much warmer, I’ve been sweating a bit more than normal, so it felt good to have a gentle exfoliating cleanser each night. My skin felt so fresh and clean after using this each night, it wasn’t harsh at all and just gave an overall clean and healthy feeling to my skin.
The next step in the routine, and my personal favorite, was the Invincible Root Cell Anti-Aging Serum. I’m a huge serum so this may have had something to do with it, but aside from that this serum is packed with Farmacy’s patented Echinacea GreenEnvy which has a high concentration of cichoric acid which works to stop enzymes from breaking down your oh so precious collagen. As long as a serum isn’t sticky, or do something crazy to my skin, I usually love it. The added bonus with this one was the light & fresh scent.
The AM moisturizer was Farmacy’s Rise N’ Shine Daily Moisture Lock, which is a lightweight moisturizer which was perfect for the weather, but I wish it had SPF in it. The Moisture Lock also has that Echinacea GreenEnvy, just like the serum, so you get a double dose of protecting collagen and normalizing skin pigmentation.
Lastly, the PM Sleep Tight Firming Night Balm has been a great way to wrap up my routine each night. I’ve loved the texture of the balm and the product aim is right in the title, firming your skin to fight against fine lines and wrinkles. Again, this product has the Echinacea GreenEnvy, so you can probably guess that with consistency of using Farmacy products often, results will follow.
I really enjoyed using the Perennial Skincare Discovery Kit and I def think I will be purchasing the cleanser, and maybe even the serum. Using this Skincare Discovery Kit has made me want to branch out and purchase a variety products from the Farmacy line!
