As someone with dry skin who’s begun to pay more attention to skincare, I was thrilled to test out the Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Melting Cleanser.
I wrote a few weeks ago about how I’m slowly switching over my beauty and skincare products to be cruelty-free, more natural and, ideally, vegan. Currently, I use plain old coconut oil to remove my makeup (followed by a cleanser) and it works beautifully. So how does this makeup cleanser compare?
What is it?
“A nourishing cleansing balm that erases makeup and gently lifts away impurities caused by pollution, it leaves the skin hydrated and silky smooth.”
What is the price?
$34 for 3.2 fl. oz
What is the Farmacy brand?
According to their website, “Unique farm-grown botanicals define Farmacy beauty, which fuses age-old wisdom with cutting-edge technologies to create irritant-free bioactive formulations for fresh, radiant skin.”
What are the ingredients?
Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Peg-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Peg-10 Isostearate, Polyethylene, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Melia Azadirachta Flower Extract, Amino Esters-1, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Amber Powder, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Coccinia Indica Fruit Extract, Solanum Melongena (Eggplant) Fruit Extract, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Ocimum Sanctum Leaf Extract, Corallina Officinalis Extract, Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Water/ Aqua/ Eau, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Echinacea Purpurea Root Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract, Disodium Phosphate, Citric Acid
How should I apply?
“Scoop a generous amount with the spatula, then use the fingertips to massage into the skin with gentle upward and outward circular motions.
Rinse with a splash of water or wipe off with a warm, damp washcloth for ultimate comfort.”
Does it work?
YES! This is an extremely effective makeup remover, even on waterproof eyeliner and mascara. It’s gentle and has a very light, pleasant scent. I also LOVE that it comes with a spatula that is incorporated into the packaging. So smart!
Where is it sold?
Would I recommend it and is it worth the cost?
Unfortunately, no. In the spirit of full disclosure, I will stick with coconut oil for removing my makeup, since it performs exactly the same as this makeup cleanser for a fraction of the cost.
However, if you’ve always wanted to try a cleansing balm, then I would absolutely recommend this one!
Can I get a discount?
Yes! You can use code Green29 for 20% off through October 31!
