You may or may not have heard of the Farmacy Beauty brand by now but it's definitely one to watch for it's innovative farm to table approach to skincare and good, clean ingredients. I've become a big fan since trying a number of their products. The latest is this Honey Potion Mask. Honey happens to have many wonderful benefits both for the body and the skin. Since I've concocted many DIY facial masks with honey, I was really curious to see how this mask would perform.

About the Brand: Made with farm grown botanicals, Farmacy Beauty blends age-old wisdom with cutting-edge technologies. The brand has teamed up with local farmers in Upstate New York to create a unique line of irritant-free, bioactive skincare. The scientists and lab behind Farmacy are innovative experts in cosmetic formulation and research, and seek out nature’s most novel yet effective ingredients. Their products are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, formaldehyde and artificial coloring and never tested on animals.

Key Ingredients:  As with all other products in the Farmacy beauty range, this mask is formulated with naturally derived ingredients and features Echinacea GreenEnvy, a unique, patent-protected variant of echinacea purpurea that contains the highest known concentration of cichoric acid, which helps protect the skin. Honey from the bees that live on Farmacy’s farm; is a natural humectant. Propolis is known for it's intense healing and antibacterial properties. Royal Jelly which is rich in amino acids, enhances skin renewal for a more youthful appearance. Essential B vitamins work to smooth and renew dry skin. Ginger root extract helps to soothe skin. Glycerin attracts moisture and provides hydrating effects for a moist, supple skin surface.

Packaging: A heavyweight hexagonal glass jar with a wooden screw off top. A metallic spatula is included to dispense the product. The cap is magnetized so the spatula adheres to it when not in use which is fantastic for keeping track of it.

Price: $56 for 4.1 oz / 117g

How to Use: After cleansing and and toning, use the spatula to scoop the mask and spread a thick layer gently across the face from forehead to chin (avoiding direct contact with eye and lip areas). Massage around face for one to two minutes while it warms and transforms into a white cream. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes then rinse off. Follow with your skincare routine.

My Impressions: This mask has a thick honey-like texture and a subtle scent that's also reminiscent of honey. The spatula makes it easy to get the product out hygienically. The mask feels sticky upon contact and as you spread it around your face, it turns into a white cream. Following the instructions, I massaged it onto my face for about a minute and half each time I used it which releases a warming sensation all around. if you've ever used any type of warming mask before, it's the same type type of feeling and it does last for the duration as you have it on your face. It does slightly tingle initially but that goes away and this wasn't something that bothered me but I wanted to mention it just in case it's a concern for others. The mask easily rinses clean off without leaving behind any traces or residue. My skin felt clean and soothed afterwards. I didn't see any remarkable results the first time I used it but my face felt great afterwards and the next morning. The second time I used it was a day after doing a home microdermabrasion treatment with a device. I was probably a little overzealous since it was the first time I tried this and was with left a small red vacuum mark on my cheek. Following this mask, the red mark was barely visible and needless to say I was sold on this product. This alone was impressive but I also like how it leaves my skin feeling smooth and renewed whenever I use it. I think this will be especially good during the colder months. I'm not usually a big fan of glass jars because I'm afraid of shattering them but I'm partial to this one since it's both eco-friendly and luxe. I already have plans to re-use it after I'm finished with this mask. Check out my other Farmacy product reviews.

Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask can be purchased direct from Farmacy Beauty and it is also available at Sephora. Farmacy donates $1 for every jar of Honey Potion sold to City Growers, a nonprofit that engages city kids in active learning about where food comes from — including the importance of bees, pollination and the production of honey.

  2. I love how Farmacy is able to pull off such contemporary yet eco-friendly concept on their packaging. I think glass is the best possible material that can keep the ingredients "fresh".

  4. LOVE the whole honey jar concept :-) It really looks edible. I'm generally a fan of honey-based skincare because it always seems to help with my acne.

  7. Oooooo....I am liking the sound of this, Rowena! I'm a big fan of honey but I just realized that in terms of skin care, I don't have any on my stash...must change that. That's great how it worked for you right after your microdermabrasion. I should get this, as I find my skin has been really sensitive lately. I don't know if it's just that I'm eating not so great lately, or some of the products I've been trying...sigh....

    And man....I wish I'm into baseball. The Jays have been doing well since last season (although I know the Yankees just kicked their ass), and everyone seems to be really rallying for them here. I remember my mom really being into it in the 90's:)

    And I need to meet your cousin....hahaha:D

  11. I'll be posting my review on this next week! I agree that I didn't see any differences to my skin initially but now that I've used it for a few weeks, my skin is definitely looking better.

  12. Honey does have many health benefits and I do remember using DIY honey masks on my face. I have to remember to do so again. I haven't heard about this brand before, but it is good to know you have had a good experience with their products so far.

    This honey potion seems great! Nice to know that this honey based face mask worked well on your skin...and that it even removed that red spot from your face. It does seem like a lovely face mask and I like that it smells like honey too:).

  13. This sounds like a very delicious mask, haha. The packaging is absolutely lovely, and I am glad that it works for you, Rowena. I can see why you will re-use this product again. I personally have never used this type of masks (I don't use masks in general), but if I have this one at home, I would be happy. Enjoy the weekend!

  24. Ooo this sounds good but makes a bit cautious as any time I use Burts Bees products I have an allergic reaction makes me wonder if there is something in the honey etc, could be pollen which I am allergic to. But for those w/o allergies I say go for it!

  32. I think I want to try it Rowena for it's hydration properties! I'm a little scared of the warming effect HAHAHAHA but it sounds so worth it afterwards. I was suppose to get into Farmacy products this year, but I haven't had the time. All of their products sound so good. I loved the samples you sent me.
