Farmacy Honey Potion
Okay guys, I have raved about Farmacy products before, and today I have their new Honey Potion mask!
You get 4.1 oz. of product in this jar (full size). It has a little metal spatula and the lid is magentized, so it just sticks there so you won't lose it, which is genius. I looked at it and was like :why don't more companies think of these things?"
One of the main things I love about Farmacy products is that they use plants for so much. And it's all made in the USA!
It definitely looks like honey and has a very faint honey scent to it, but it's nowhere near as sticky as you would think it would be. It is pretty thick, but once you spread a good amount onto your skin with the spatula, you're supposed to work it in with your hands until it turns white. At this point, it loses most of it's stickiness.
It's important to note that this is a warming mask, so you'll start feeling it heat up as soon as you work it into your skin. I leave it on for around 10 minutes. Now the first time I used this and went to rinse it off, I used hot water and it started burning. I was afraid to use it again, but realized when you use cool water it doesn't sting like that. Not sure why it reacts that way, but yes, if you have sensitive skin be sure to keep that in mind.
After using this a few times a week, my skin feels incredibly soft. I do love that it's a moisturizing mask that doesn't make your skin incredibly oily. That tends to happen to me a lot when I use new masks, and this one doesn't do that. It feels great, makes me skin feel great, and makes me feel like I got a facial at a spa. It retails for $56 which is pricey for a mask, but I think their products are definitely worth it. Everything I've tried from their line has lasted a long time and has NOT disappointed me!
I also filmed a video/demo using the mask, which you can view here:
