Farmacy Skin Dew Review

I first became interested in Farmacy when I tried their Lip Blooms at Sephora. I’m from Iowa so naturally, I’m down with anything with the word farm in it. I sure wish I could have one-full of goats, alpaca, horses and kittens! It helps that Farmacy’s brand video has a sick ass cat cameo in it. In all seriousness, that video really impressed me. Farmacy grows their GreenEnvy echinacea in upstate New York and gives jobs to young people that would otherwise be leaving the area. I was excited to try their new Skin Dew and tell you all about it!

Skin Dew contains Farmacy’s proprietary GreenEnvy Echinacea which I detected right away. The spray smells like an effervescent cough drop in a way. It’s not a bad smell necessarily. This is one of the few facial sprays I’ve used that actually gives a visible glow to the skin which I suspect comes from the variety of natural oils it contains. Peppermint, orange peel, lime, bergamot, rosemary, ginger, basil and kiwi make this a blast of herbal goodness. It also contains something called horsetail extract-uh what-tumeric and eggplant extract.

I enjoyed using this to hydrate and prime skin prior to foundation. I found it made my liquid foundation blend nicely and look more luminous. I also tried it as a makeup setting spray, assuming the glycerin it contains aids in this. It was a nice, glowy final step but didn’t lock my makeup in like other setting sprays I’ve tried. I will say, I prefer this to the Pixi Glow Mist. It has a less-sticky feel and is more refreshing.

I do like that you’re at least paying for a cruelty-free, American-made product free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates. I like that it’s more than a setting spray, packed with ingredients that have skin benefits.

I like it and enjoy using it but I think the price is a bit too high for me to wholeheartedly recommend it.
