SENT FOR REVIEW
Recently my skin has become dry, patchy and it’s lacking the healthy lustre. I don’t blame it, pulling all-nighter with a newborn baby will do so. I feel so depressed looking at my face in the mirror nowadays, I seriously need something as a “pick-me-up”.
I was sent a sheet face mask by “Farmacy” for review consideration recently. If you haven’t heard about this brand yet, may be you are not alone. Farmacy is a fairly new skin care brand which launched in Sephora and QVC.
The product description looked really promising. So I was intrigued to try it out. Did it meet my expectations? Keep on reading.
This is how the company represents itself:

HOW TO USE:
Cleanse and tone the skin.
Remove the mask from the sachet and unfold completely. The mask is placed between two sheets of protective mesh. Remove one side.
Now place the exposed mask side on your face and smooth over surface, then remove the other protective mesh.
Leave the mask on for 20–25 minutes for the best results.
Remove the mask and gently massage excess formula into the skin.
Here’s a demonstration on how to use this mask.
I was sent the Soothing Kale mask, which claims to supercharge stressed, tired skin.
The mask is easy to use.
Not over-powering smell.
It left my skin really smooth and supple.
If you leave this mask in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes and use it on your face, it feels just wonderfully refreshing.
I haven’t found any.
IN A NUTSHELL:
With good ingredients and ease of application, this mask didn’t lower my expectation, rather increased it.
Two thumbs up!
