NEW PRODUCT: Farmacy’s Honey Savior Salve

IMG_2615

Life is a wonderful happening of events and meeting wonderful people.

Let me explain…. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

QVC.

I’ve met some awesome people. This one time, I can tell you who I met.

Mark Veeder of Farmacy.

My husfriend’s company had the TSV (Today’s Special Value) and I had spent almost 24 hours at QVC. I saw that Mark was going to be on that night. I wanted to tell him how much I love the Brightening Coconut Gel Mask that we got in June’s Boxycharm.

So, I did!

There I was telling Mark how much I loved the mask, that after the long flight from Orange County to Philadelphia it saved my face. That is just a brilliant sheet mask and Thank You!

(Here I am sitting in a Philadelphia hotel the night we got into town. I took the photo to show a friend, so excuse the crazy face!!)

He placed a box in my hand. Exclaiming how I should try it and how it’s their newest product and it’s almost available to the public.

I immediately tried it…thanks to my Hives of Unexplained Nature (most likely from it being Husfriend’s last few shows and goals and all the excitement of the day and the extreme lack of sleep…) but I digress… and I smoothed in on my face and arm and instant relief.

YOU PROBABLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT THIS AMAZING STUFF IS, RIGHT???

I’m gong to make you wait…. a little longer.

Let me tell you a little about Farmacy. It’s Farming, meets Science, meets What your wise Grandmother taught you… All rolled into one amazing Skin Care Company.

Okay, now let me tell you about this new tube of awesome.

It’s the Honey Savior All-in-One Skin Repair Salve!

I’m gonna drop some Science…. (from the box.)

“Powered by Echinacea GreenEnvy Honey. GreenEnvy honey is full of potent natural antioxidant and is made only by bees that live on our farm and pollinate the Echinacea GreenEnvy flowers.

A unique patent-protected variant of Echinacea Purpurea, GreenEvy contains the highest known concentration of the phytochemical Cichoric Acid, another natural antioxidant, which heightens the hydrating and purifying benefits of honey.”

That’s some serious stuff right there.

And Mark and the Farmacy Team are serious about natural skin care.

This salve really *does* soothe angry skin, be it from bug bites, hives or extra dry skin. There are oodles of great stuff packed into this salve. We know about the honey. In addition it contains royal jelly, propolis and natural oils.

I’ve been using it for the last few weeks. All over. Hands, cuticles, arms, legs… and FEET! It’s dry here in New Mexico and my poor hooves haven’t been very pretty this summer until I used this. It’s not one of those lotions/creams that you apply and then minutes later you have to re-apply. It also make a big visual change in dry skin. My heels no longer look cracked and dry.. and they don’t feel cracked and dry!

It absorbs into the skin. Doesn’t leave skin greasy. Just healthy looking and feeling.

It smells like warm honey, but it slowly dissipates. My mom said, “I want to eat it.”

On the nerd side of things.. I’m pretty sure the concoction that Cassandra from Dr. Who was sprayed with? Was made from this salve. Moisturize Me, Moisture Me!

You know that I’m also a packaging junkie. There was some time and thought put into the box and sleeve decide. The box has a honeycomb print all over the outside. Inside tells you about the company and it’s mission to meld nature and science for better skin. The actual tube is metal, you the kind that actual will stay rolled when you use up the product. the cap is uber awesome, it’s wood! Also, it’s made in the USA.

Having strange sensitive skin that has reacted beautifully to the two products that I have tried from Farmacy makes me want to try even more from this company.

When this product launches on July 16th, I will add the link.

Until then, put this on your, I HAVE TO TRY THIS STUFF list. I’m a fan of the Honey Savior.. It’s so aptly named!

Thank you to Mark for handing me the Honey Savior!

Stay Awesome,

Clare

Albertini Skin Care Review

Hello My Fellow Goo Horders!

I’ve recently gotten into skincare.

I’ll admit it. I slept in my makeup for almost 20 years.

Probably not the best thing to do, right? So, at the behest of a good friend, I started paying more attention to my skin. I figure that I want my skin to be good to me for at least the next 40 years, I better begin caring for it a little more, now. It’s been a year of hits and misses.

I was intrigued when I was contacted to review a couple products from Albertini’s skin care line!

Ready to find out about some fantastic items?

Let’s do this….

Rough Love. This is a body exfoliator. Wonderful scented with Rosemary and Eucalyptus oils. I love the fact that this scrub doesn’t smell sweet, it smells natural and earthy. Perfect amount of grit coming from the salt and dark mud combination. It’s the perfect exfoliator before a self tanner for me! It will feel like you have new skin. I’m an exfoliator lover (From way back, yo!) and this one is one of my new favorites! You’ll be so soft, like a baby’s bottom.

Warm Love. A Pumpkin Exfoliating Mask. OMG! Another product that I never knew I needed in ma life. My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. This is warm pumpkin pie and whipped cream in a face mask. When you apply it starts to warm and you feel the creaminess and smell the spices, it’s just so homey and comfy and and and…. I like to use this one before bed a couple times a week, smooth it on and rub it around after I’ve washed my face and keep it on while I brush my teeth. I’ll wash it off amount 10 minutes later, after finishing the rest of my nightly routine. It feels luxurious and I feel fancy using it. In the picture below you can see the exfoliating bits.

IMG_1034 My face feels soft and my skin looks brighter, happier. It’s all the goodness of Thanksgiving dessert in a face mask and none of the calories! It’s heaven in a tube.

Last but not least….

Pure Love. This is an oil cleanser that blends olive oil, argan oil and jojoba oil. This stuff is magic! Dissolves makeup including waterproof mascara. Emulsifies with water to rinse cleanly. There’s no film or greasiness at ALL! Gentle enough to use morning and night. Tough enough to really clean. There’s a gentle fresh warm scent to it. It’s really nice not having tight skin. I grew up being told that tight skin meant clean skin. This is so not the case! My skin feels amazing after I use this. I want a body cleanser like this. Seriously, I want to bathe myself in Pure Love!

I’ve noticed using these products that my skin is happier and more glowy. Who doesn’t want that? I’m always nervous trying new things because of my weird sensitive skin. I’ve not had one problem with any of these products. This makes me a happy woman! These will stay in my current rotation of skin care. Not only to I like using them, I’ve seen results.

Until next time, Stay Awesome!
