FARMACY HYDRATING COCONUT GEL MASK


Wrapping up a weekend of #NYFW has its ups and downs. One of those downs is certainly how drained I feel, not to mention how that feeling translates to the condition of my skin. One treatment that I find always makes a wonderfully instant difference in my skin is a sheet mask. Already a fan of the skincare genre, you could imagine how excited I was to test out the new Farmacy Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask in the Deep Moisture variety. Farmacy's defining mantra revolves around its farm-grown, hand-picked botanical ingredients harvested in upstate NY and the discovery of their patented ingredient Echinacea GreenEnvy™. 

The mask, which is activated by Vitamin-C rich Cucumber Extract, uses coconut gel to provide skin with intensive hydration and help to restore the skin's balance. The sheet itself is made of bio-cellulose, which makes for easy release of its component complex that penetrate the surface layers of the skin for a boost of all natural potent ingredients. 

That being said, it's easy to see why it took no time at all for me to fall in love with this product. Even application is simple; after cleansing and toning the skin as usual, simply remove the mask from the sachet and unfold, keeping careful to remove only one side of the protective mesh until after smoothing over the face. Once it's in place and taught, the other side of mesh can be removed and the mask left on for 20-25 minutes to give the skin its boost of botanicals. The milky coconut gel soaked mask starts to hydrate and soothe stressed skin right away. I find that the longer the sheet mask is left on, the more moisturized and plump my skin feels after application and once the mask is removed, massage the remaining formula onto the skin as you would your serum. 

I could certainly get used to applying one of these multiple times a week to keep things as balanced, smooth, and flawless as possible. I personally love to take sheet masks along for long weekend trips, and while traveling in general, and this one in particular has taken top spot as my all-time favorite. Not only is it free of nasties, but the coconut gel formula moisturizes while taking care of any redness and irritation my skin has. My skin simply soaks up every last drop of the formula.

Farmacy is a relatively new skincare brand that launched in the US at Sephora August 8th, on QVC September 8th, and will be available in Sephora stores on September 18th. The masks come in a package of 3 and retail at $24. Check out their full product range on www.farmacybeauty.com and show how you enjoy your Farmacy products by hashtagging #farmacybeauty.
