Hello, big fan of Farmacy here. I recently saw that the brand launched a new moisturizer, which just so happened to fall during the time of the Sephora VIB sale – so I tucked away my favourite Belif Aqua Bomb and added the Farmacy Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya straight to the cart.
Another clean beauty brand (I clearly have a type) to grace my top shelf, Farmacy already makes my all time favourite cleansing balm so it was no wonder I was going to pick this one up. Typically I would go for moisturizers that pack a bit more of a punch for dry skin, but I’ve been trying something new with my skin and instead of trying to find an all-in-one moisturizer, I’m layering multiple products tailored for a number of my specific needs. I’ve been finding more lightweight moisturizers are doing just the trick for daytime wear, while heavier oils and creams are reserved for my nighttime routine. And this daily moisturizer is just that – lightweight.
This oil-free, silicone-free moisturizer hydrates while helping to clear pores and reduce shine. It combines moringa seed extract and moringa water, as well as papaya extract to remove impurities and gently exfoliate, while four types of hyaluronic acid and polyglutamic acid hydrate skin and lock in moisture.
I can already tell this is going to be a summertime favourite for me, especially with it’s fresh citrus scent, but will it replace my OG Belif? It’s still too soon to tell. I think Belif will be more suitable for my winter skin, but I certainly appreciate the exfoliating properties that come with this Farmacy moisturizer. Perhaps it’s yet another skincare product that gets rotated into my regimen as needed. Either way, if you love clean beauty and are looking for a refreshing lightweight addition to your skincare routine, I cannot recommend this enough! A+ Farmacy, love what you do!
