Review: Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer

Hi Beauties,

I’ve been using the Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer* on an off for the past couple of months. When I was first gifted the moisturiser I thought it was an extension of the Honey Drop Moisturiser range but in a lightweight formula. I was wrong, there’s only the one moisturiser but its lightweight. I was getting it confused with their best selling Honey Potion Hydrating Mask.


About the Farmacy Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer:

“A long-lasting, lightweight moisturiser with Echinacea GreenEnvy™ Honey, Triple Hyaluronic Acid Complex, and cupuaçu butter beads to keep skin smooth and soft all day long”. 

Proven results. After a four-week study and consumer panel test…

  • 92% of panelists indicated that Honey Drop left the skin moisturized and replenished for 8 hours.
  • 95% of panelists indicated that Honey Drop left skin feeling hydrated.
  • 95% of panelists indicated that Honey Drop left skin feeling soft and smooth throughout the course of the study.

Overall Thoughts: 

  • Retails for $61 AUD or $45 USD from Sephora
  • The packaging is glass, very luxe but also makes it hard to travel with. It also comes with a spatula which is great for not spreading germs. However I always find that I lose spatulas. But this is amazing! Its magnetic and sticks to the lid- OMG! How smart?!
  • Personally I don’t notice any scent- maybe a hint of honey but nothing overwhelming or obnoxious.
  • The texture is extremely light weight and not sticky which I was still surprised by as it contains honey. It also has tiny beads which I think are the cupuaçu butter beads. When you blend the moisturiser into the skin the beads disappear. They’re not hard or uncomfortable, they honestly just seem to disappear.
  • I like that it blends and absorbs into the skin really quickly. Perfect for summer, but also still hydrating enough for winter.
  • I only used this moisturiser at night, or on mornings when I knew I wouldn’t be out an about in the sun. However you can use this morning and night.

To be honest I’m not sold on this moisturiser. I liked the feel of it but there was no wow factor. I was using it for about a month and found that my skin was breaking out. I’m not saying it was this moisturiser as I was also trialling a few other products at the time. I stopped for a couple of months then started to use it again and noticed some pesky spots were coming to the surface. Again, it could be the honey being antibacterial and bringing the gunk to the surface but I wasn’t willing to keep using it. I’ve used about half of the jar so I think its fair to say I’ve given it a good go. While its not a winner for me, I recommend getting a sample before committing to the full jar.
