Happy Wednesday beYOUties!
REAL TALK – it’s a very rare thing when I can say I Love Everything about a certain brand. As my blog turns 1yr and a half- I am writing more and more about what I WANT to, in the way I want to. So It’s a Big statement to say I love everything that I have tried from FARMACY Beauty.
You will definitely see them in more posts and I will be talking about them on my Beauty podcast in upcoming episodes.
So this is how I first fell in love.
Their mission statement – their philosophy wrapped up in one Video.
Very beautiful. Beauty with Purpose. Beauty that makes a difference.
That thrills me.
As I podcast more and more, I am realizing that there is a purpose to why I wanted to create a beauty podcast !
Cute parallel but let’s get on with the products.
Mark Veeder is the pioneer plantsman behind the discovery and patenting of Echinacea GreenEnvy™, a unique variant of Echinacea Purpurea. He has partnered with farming expert Robert Beyfuss to cultivate the plant in upstate New York. Together, they are creating jobs and changing lives in their local community.
About a month ago they kindly sent me their Skin Dew
One product started the Big love !!!!!!!!
If You look in my comments under the photo on IG – You will see my excitement grow!
Glycerine based with a chock full of benefits.
With one Spritz and truly it was the aroma – Slightly minty – and totally fresh- I was spritzing 6 or 7 times a day. I really adore my face to feel cool and refreshed – ALL the time.
Having very sensitive skin and skin that reddens easily is something that I have always had. Yes I blush easily too !
French and Danish and a bit of Scottish makes for very Pink and white skin. Genetics, thin skin and a fast metabolism play a Huge part in why this skincare works for me.
So For me – the main concern is to lessen the pinkness without makeup.
And -as I took the time to figure out what the key ingredient would be for my type of skin.
I found it !
EASY PEASY! It’s Cichoric Acid!
Obviously when there are LESS ingredients in a product or product line It makes the guesswork Fun!
So TADA the ingredient that tones down Pink tones and calms My skin the best is Cichoric Acid!
And then I understood MORE!
POWERED BY ECHINACEA GREENENVY™
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.
It’s amazing when You find the one ingredient that can completely correct tone.
So let’s get into the products – Shall we !
