The Farmacy brand is one those brands I discovered on Instagram. I discovered them earlier this year and it turns out it’s quite a popular brand! Among their popular products, I found Green Clean, a makeup melt away cleansing balm popular within the skincare community. I purchased ‘The Mighties’ set from Beautylish, which is the perfect introduction to the brand.
Farmacy Green Clean Cleansing Balm promises to melt away makeup and impurities without stripping the skin. It has their trademark Echinacea greenenvy formula which promotes an evenly toned complexion. It also has Moringa extract, sunflower oil and natural enzymes for gentle exfoliation
I had the trial size which I was using as a 1st cleanser in the evening. This size lasted about a week and a half. I did not experience any irritation from it. It has a lightweight pleasant scent. The texture is a soft balm that instantly melts into a lightweight oil when massaged unto the skin. It feels very gentle on the skin and quickly dissolves makeup & mascara. Green Clean emulsifies into a milk when water is added and rinses away clean and very easily. I tend to remove this with a makeup removing cloth. There is no residue left and my skin does not feel stripped.
Green Clean was extremely pleasant and easy to use. I was very impressed with how quickly it melts in the hands and how much makeup it removes. A little goes a long way with this balm and I only needed a small amount for cleansing. The amount still gives a bit of ‘slip’ for a facial massage but obviously, I would recommend a bigger amount for cleansing. I tried to make my trial size last as long as possible.
I am in love with this balm and I can see the hype. The balm is an effective makeup remover and cleanser: I loved using it every night even when I had no makeup on which was most of the time. it leaves the skin feeling refreshed and comfortable but importantly clean!
The full size is also affordable and I am considering buying the full size. I will be reviewing the other products in the set.
