Hello, class! Today we are chatting about a lovely product line I received courtesy of Brandbacker (which means that it was free, but I am expected to give my honest opinion). This new line comes to us from Farmacy, which can be found on farmacybeauty.com as well as in Sephora online and in stores!
The Perennial Picks Skincare Discovery Kit contains:
INVINCIBLE Root Cell Anti-Aging Serum 0.27 fl. oz | 8 ml
SLEEP TIGHT Renewing Night Treatment 0.5 fl. oz | 15 ml
RISE ‘N SHINE Daily Moisture Lock o.5 fl. oz. | 15 ml
NEW DAY Gentle Cleansing Grains | 1.4 oz. | 40 g
According to Farmacy,
A unique patent-protected variant of Echinacea Purpurea, GreenEnvy™ contains the highest known concentration of the phytochemical Cichoric Acid, a potent natural antioxidant which helps protect and firm the skin by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen. Cichoric Acid also normalizes the skin pigmentation process to promote a more evenly toned complexion.
I tried these products for a week, using the following routine:
In the morning I cleansed with water and applied the Rise ‘n’ Shine Daily Moisture Lock.
In the evening I cleansed with the New Day Gentle Cleansing Grains. I applied a small amount of the Invincible Root Cell Anti-Aging Serum and let it sink it. Then, before bed, I applied the Sleep Tight Renewing Night Treatment.
First of all, I love the packaging on these items. Everything feels clean and simple. Additionally, none of the products has an overwhelming fragrance, which is a huge thumbs-up in my book.
I tend not to like products that involving mixing a grain with water to cleanse. I typically get pieces in my eyes, which is uncomfortable to say the least. However, the New Day Gentle Cleansing Grains are finely ground enough where this was never a problem for me. This product left my skin soft and clean.
The serum and night treatment are also amazing products. I kept touching my face before bed because it just felt so soft.
My least favorite item in the Perennial Picks Discovery Kit is the Rise ‘n’ Shine Daily Moisture Lock. I prefer a product that sinks into the skin a bit quicker. I also try to use products in the morning that have SPF in them, and this has none.
Overall, this is a fantastic kit if you are looking to try out Farmacy. I will be adding some more Farmacy products to my “must try” list, including their Skin Dew setting spray and their various hydrating coconut gel masks!
