Mask Monday | Farmacy Honey Potion

Farmacy calls this a "renewing antioxidant hydration mask".

Farmacy Honey Potion -

What the jar also says is it's a "warming massage mask". Well I did not see that the first time I put this on and I swore my nose was gonna fall off.

Farmacy Honey Potion -

From their site

"What it is
This warming massage mask nourishes and revitalizes the skin for a glowing, smooth complexion.

It gently warms and transforms into a rich cream as it’s massaged into the face, soothing and revitalizing the skin.

Size: 4.1 oz | 117 g

Good for
Dry skin
Fine lines and wrinkles
Dullness and uneven texture

Why it’s special
An intensely moisturizing combination of honey (a natural humectant used since ancient times), propolis (a healing antiseptic found in beehives) and amino acid-rich royal jelly, it enhances skin renewal for a younger appearance.

This super hydrating mask with natural honey sugars is rich in amino acids and essential B vitamins.

The ingenious magnetic spatula attaches to the top so you’ll never lose it.
Does NOT contain: Parabens, formaldehyde and artificial coloring.

Formulated with naturally derived ingredients.
Not tested on animals.


First cleanse and tone the skin then 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 for 1-2 minutes while it warms and transforms into a white cream. Leave on for 10-15 minutes then rinse off. Follow with your favorite Farmacy day or night treatment

I didn't read those instructions until after I had applied the mask either. Lots of lessons on what not to do here folks. So I didn't tone my skin prior but I did take my time and spread yellow gel thingie all over my face. It does kindda smell like honey...but it's faint so non offensive. As stated, it does transform into a white cream.

The warming sensation doesn't last long and while it was initially alarming it didn't cause discomfort.

The mask washed off easily enough and left my skin soft and plump. I didn't feel the need to follow up with a moisturizer.

" The ingredients listed on the website and my packaging are the same. Note how the Echinacea GreenEnvy honey that Farmacy boasts of is fairly far down the list.

Speaking of packaging, I got this 0.32 oz. / 9g jar in a Sephora Favourites kit. The full size retails for $56USD. I suspect that would last for a loooooong time although the directions do say you should apply a thick layer. 

I agree that dry and mature skin folk would enjoy this formula. Me and dis oily face hey appreciate the opportunity to try it but I wouldn't by the full size. Please note: the action of massaging your face for two minutes is a great thing to do with your face oil or moisturizer since it encourages blood circulation which boosts collagen production.

i.e. take some time and take care of yourself 😊
