Farmacy Green Clean, Lip Bloom and Sleep Tight Review

Not Sponsored: The Farmacy skincare brand has been on my list to try for awhile. They are considered a CLEAN brand! They use natural ingredients and believe in Farm to Face skincare. You may have heard of Farm to Table, well it's reached over to beauty and skincare as well. So, I love Farmacy's overall philosophy and ethics. I had some deluxe samples of their products. I've had a chance to try each. Let me share my thoughts with you.

Farmacy Green Clean (makeup meltaway cleansing balm) $22-$34 - Sweet
I love cleansing balms! Farmacy describes Green Clean (JCPenney, Sephora) as a nourishing makeup remover + cleansing balm that gently melts away stubborn makeup and impurities caused by pollution, without stripping skin. I found that this mint green, balm to oil formula did a great job removing basic makeup (foundation, blush, concealer, eyeshadow), but it struggled removing eyeliner, heavy mascara and stronger eye shadows. It removed those things, but I had to go over it 2-3 times. If you're a light makeup wearer, this is perfect for you. If you wear heavy eye makeup, then I would go with something a little stronger. I would describe the scent as very FRESH! Farmacy describes it as Summer! I would even throw Spring in the mix. It's nice, but I still prefer my Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm (Nordstrom, QVC, Saks Fifth Avenue, JCPenney, Sephora, Bloomingdales, ULTA) (review here) and IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm (QVC) (review here). One application with those and I'm done.

Farmacy Lip Bloom $12-$16 - Supersweet
Farmacy describes Lip Bloom as an herb infused lip balm, that replenishes moisture and forms a protective barrier on the lips. I was very impressed with Lip Bloom! I found it to be extremely moisturizing. My lips felt nourished. It's super long-lasting. It's not greasy. I had the scent citrus lemongrass, but this also comes in honey ginger, strawberry basil and apple rosemary. There's no taste, just scent. It even stays on if you drink something. It's really good!

Farmacy Sleep Tight $16-$48 - NO RATING
Farmacy describes Sleep Tight (Sephora) as a lightweight balm that melts into your skin, firms and you wake up with beautifully revived, hydrated skin. My dry, sensitive skin did not react well to this for some reason. I put this all over my face and between my undereye area and cheeks (cheekbone) became super sensitive (like a burn). So I immediately removed this from my face. Even after removing this, I experienced sensitivity for two more days. Everywhere else on my face was fine. It must be something in that I don't agree with. Just to give you a little insight, If I don't put on sunscreen and I'm in direct sunlight my entire eye area will swell up. It's a very sensitive area on my face. A number of people have had great results with Sleep Tight. I don't feel it's fair for me to rate it when I only kept it on for such a short period. If you have really sensitive skin, I would suggest trying it maybe on one side of your face. It's not greasy, but I didn't particularly care for the scent. It has a lemon au natural scent. I like some lemon scents, but this one ... no.
