Farmaesthetics Sweet Milk & Chamomile Flowers Facial Exfoliate ($28.00 for 4 oz. from Farmaaesthetics): This beautiful exfoliating cleanser begins its life as an ultra fine powder that achieves a creamy, aromatic lather when mixed with water. The light abrasion, coupled with the lactic acid, gently eliminates and dissolves dead skin cells, unclogs congested pores, and reveals soft, supple and luminous skin. Furthermore, it is neither stripping, nor too abrasive, and is gentle enough to be used every day. It also can be left on the skin as a deeper cleansing mask. The wonderful light Chamomile aroma is calming and very pleasant. Purchase Again? While I really enjoyed using this, I have too many products to use in this category.
Omorovicza Cleansing Foam ($82.00 for 150ml from Omorovicza, Nordstrom, Space NK and Saks Fifth Avenue): I do not usually review deluxe samples, or really comment on the if I haven't used the product long enough to really evaluate its claims, efficacy or whether I really like it. However, this decadent cleanser was such a treat to use that I coveted it down to the last drop. In fact, right after I took this picture, I cut the tube open and used every single drop. It is a wonderfully gentle cleanser with a satisfying lather, but it is not in the least bit drying, stripping or irritating to the skin. Described as, "Refreshing cleansing foam for a deep, yet gentle, daily cleanse"– this cleanser is an absolute treat to use. Purchase Again? It is quite pricey, but I would consider purchasing it during a sale.Blüh Alchemy Multi C Serum ($140.00 for 1 oz. from Boxwalla): This antioxidant-rich creamy gel-based Vitamin C serum is lightweight, fast absorbing and it has a delectable warm dreamy aroma. It is filled with botanical actives and peptides that deliver potent and bioactive Vitamin C to help plump, brighten and firm the skin. It combines, "a stable cellular extraction of wild harvested Kakadu plum (which is one of the highest sources of botanical, bioactive Vitamin C), with a stable Vitamin C ester (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate) and then enhances the effectiveness of all that Vitamin C goodness with Kangaroo Paw Flower which is rich in Ferulic Acid." Furthermore, it is formulated to strengthen capillaries, increase collagen production, deeply hydrate, and to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. Purchase Again? YES! This is an extraordinary Vitamin C serum!
Herbivore Orchid Facial Oil ($64.00 for 1.7 oz. from Nordstrom, Credo Beauty, Sephora, Dermstore and Revolve): Formulated for normal skin, this gorgeous lightweight and fast absorbing oil leaves skin soft, silky smooth, hydrated and with a pronounced dewy glow. The antioxidant and Omega-rich formula nourishes and protects the skin, while the delectable Camellia and Jasmine aroma delights the senses. The fractionated Coconut Oil, which is the carrier oil, is used in this effective formulation to ensures that this elixir effortlessly melts into the skin without leaving behind a greasy residue. Purchase Again? Not likely because I have too many open face oils to use first, but I really liked this oil a lot.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal UV Defense Moisturizer ($31.00 for 1.69 oz. from Vichy, Ulta, Amazon, Dermstore and Target): is a lightweight daily moisturizer that keeps skin wonderfully hydrated while offering a broad spectrum SPF 30. This all-in-one SPF moisturizer has a high enough SPF that I do not feel the need to use another sunscreen, but I do have to reapply it every 80 minutes as I would with a regular sunscreen. This is a chemical sunscreen– using Avobenzone 3%, Homosalate 5%, Octisalate 5% and Octocrylene 7%– therefore, if you prefer physical sunscreens then you probably won't want to use this French Pharmacy favorite. Purchase Again? Probably the next time that I need a sunscreen for my face.Vitabrid C¹² Deep Cleansing Shampoo Shot Pre-Shampoo Treatment: This Deep Cleansing Shampoo Shot is formulated to deeply clean the scalp and to effectively exfoliate dead skin cells without stripping or drying the scalp or hair. The gel transforms into a milky emulsion when water is introduced, and it can be used before you use shampoo, or you can mix it with your shampoo. It rinses clean and really refreshes the scalp. Purchase Again? I think that they discontinued it because it is no longer available on their website. This stuff was great!
Farmhouse Fresh Pink Moon Body Wash & Bubble Bath ($19.00 for 8.4 oz. plastic BPA-free bottle from Farmhouse Fresh): This sulfate-free, creamy foaming body wash thoroughly cleansing skin without stripping it in the least. In fact, skin is self soft, smooth and silky after use. The antioxidant-rich and nourishing formula hydrates skin, but leaves behind no greasy film or residue, and it is emollient enough that I use it to shave my legs. The aroma is a sugary floral that is utterly delectable. Purchase Again? I have quite a few body washes and bubble baths to use before I consider purchasing more, but I would definitely use this one again!
