Hello, class! If you’re in the midst of winter like I am, your skin might be feeling the effects of the cooler, dryer weather. So today I want to talk about my new favorite mask that is perfect for a cold day. We are talking about the Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration mask from Farmacy Beauty. As always, I must share with you that Farmacy was kind enough to gift me this product, and though they asked for nothing in return, I like it so much that I want to discuss it with you!
The Honey Potion mask, which, by the way, is available at Sephora, is supposed to hyrdate the skin and promote a younger appearance.
It features an intensely moisturizing combination of honey (a natural humectant used since ancient times), propolis (antiseptic found in beehives), and amino acid-rich royal jelly. Echinacea GreenEnvy™ is a unique variant of echinacea purpurea, which contains the highest known concentration of the phytochemical cichoric acid—a potent, natural antioxidant that enhances hydration and the purifying benefits of honey. The balm gently warms and transforms into a rich cream as it’s massaged into the skin for an indulgent experience.
My Thoughts on Honey Potion
The Honey Potion mask comes in a cute little (not really little… it’s 4.1oz. of product…) jar with a magnetic cap. This is important because the product also comes with a metal applicator that can sit on the lid when not in use. The mask itself is a thick, gooey cream that is best scooped out with the metal applicator. I like to apply it in globs to my face which I then spread with my fingers. Once you have a nice thick layer, massaging the Honey Potion into the skin creates a warming reaction. I like to let the mask sit and warm my face for about 15 minutes before rinsing it with cool water.
Now, you might be thinking – isn’t this really messy to remove? The answer is no. Because the one thing I remember from chemistry is that honey is water soluble. OK, maybe that’s not the only thing I remember, but it’s probably the most important thing I remember. Anyway, that means that water breaks honey down very easily, so the Honey Potion mask is not sticky when you try to remove it.
I’ve been using the Honey Potion mask all winter and I love the way my skin looks and feels post-application. I also just love having the mask on my face. The warming reaction is both refreshing and energizing.
Anyway, keep the Farmacy Honey Potion mask in mind if you are in the market for a new skin product! And let me know if you’ve tried it!
