Review: Farmacy Honey Potion – Hydrating Mask

Very rarely have I gotten Joe involved in blog-related shenanigans, but a couple weeks ago we had fun filming a video “review” of Farmacy’s Honey Potion hydrating mask! I always appreciate having a reason to break out the nice camera 😉

Review: Farmacy Honey Potion – Hydrating Mask from Wanderings of Claire on Vimeo.

My happy face at the end says it all, right?! My face has definitely felt more moisturized after using this mask – but I did have to figure out how to actually use the product before experiencing those results. Hence the more instructional video rather than a straight up review. That said, let’s rewind a bit.

Review:

I’m all about the unboxing experience, and definitely think this mask’s packaging is worth mentioning. It felt like a premium product from the moment I took it out of the box it was shipped in, and that feeling of being a high-quality product continued as I actually began to unbox the product itself. So good. Oh, and the lid of the glass container is magnetic, which keeps the little metal scooper from getting lost. Brilliant if I may say so myself!

Buuuut this is where things got tricky for me. Should I use the scooper to apply the product to my face? Should I rub it in, or leave it kind of gloppy? How long should I leave the mask on? Directions were nowhere to be found, so I just ran with my gut. Unfortunately, after winding up with a gloppy smattering of honey potion on my face, it was pretty clear that my gut was wrong. 

I rinsed off round 1 of mask application, applying a smaller amount with my fingers for round 2. And I’ll be damned if it didn’t work out significantly better! The mask got warm as I smoothed it onto my face, turning white with time…instead of slowly dripping off in globs. I can’t wait to use the mask once it’s a bit cooler out; I can picture the warming sensation feeling so nice on a cold day!

Did I mention the mask is all natural? Here is a description straight from Farmacy’s website (where I also just discovered some directions, fancy that!)

An intensely moisturizing combination of honey (a natural humectant used since ancient times), propolis (a healing antiseptic found in beehives) and amino acid-rich royal jelly, it enhances skin renewal for a younger appearance. 

 This super hydrating mask with natural honey sugars is rich in amino acids and essential B vitamins.

It gently warms and transforms into a rich cream as it’s massaged into the face, soothing and revitalizing the skin. 

The ingenious magnetic spatula attaches to the top so you’ll never lose it.  

Needless to say, once I figured out the right way to put the mask on, I was sold. After rinsing the mask off about 10 minutes later, my face felt so smooth and moisturized; I can only imagine how great my face will look and feel after using the mask continuously.

Thanks, Farmacy, for providing this mask for me to review!!

  1. Honey is well known as a health product. I can only believe that on the face it would have beneficial properties providing what is added is also of similar genre. Enjoy your sharing thanks.
