Summertime makeup isn't all glowy skin and shimmery eyes. It's sweat. It's foundation melting off your face. It's tinted moisturizer only, thank you next. With fall here, many beauty lovers are moving back to their beloved full coverage foundations and smoky eyes. Thankfully, Farmacy Beauty's Green Clean comes in a jumbo size now, and it'll help your strip off every last stitch of fall makeup. Trust me, I know, because it's my favorite cleansing balm.
For those who aren't familiar with Farmacy's Green Clean, the makeup remover comes in a solid balm that, when warmed up in your hands, transitions into an oil. It's this smooth oil that helps to break down makeup and impurities taking away every bit of makeup on your face. Plus, unlike with other solid balm cleansers, Green Clean washes away with warm water requiring no messy wash cloths for removal. And it smells like a lemon-lime lollipop, which never hurts.
As for how the product does its job, natural plant-based oils like sunflower and ginger root break down makeup while also preventing your skin from being stripped like other cleansers with harsh surfectants are likely to do. Even if you don't wear daily makeup, the melting product also washes off difficult-to-remove impurities and products like sunscreen, removing them with turmeric and moringa extract while papaya enzyme helps to gently exfoliate.
For those like me who never wear less than eight makeup products at a time, Green Clean's jumbo size ensures you'll have clean skin through all of fall and winter's full coverage foundation, warm-toned smoky eye, and deep lip color staples.
The jumbo Green Clean features double the amount of product in comparison to the brand's standard size — 6.8 to 3.4 ounces. While the amount of product has doubled in this new size, the price hasn't. The brand's 3.4 ounce jar retails for $34, but the doubled, jumbo size is only $58 offering a $10 on the doubled balm.
While you certainly could take my word that this is the world's best cleansing balm, I'm not the only person who's praising this lemon-lime scented cleanser.
On the Sephora website, Green Clean is sitting pretty at a 4.6 star rating with over 2,800 reviews, and over 2,200 of them are a full 5 stars. Then, you can couple those ratings with the 150,000 loves the product carries. Customers are also vocal in their reviews. One Sephora customer wrote, "All time favorite. It breaks down makeup (including eye makeup) without a lot of work or fuss, and emulsifies quickly and completely, rinsing clean."
Whether you've been a fan of Farmacy's Green Clean for a while or are new to cleansing balms as a whole, it's time to invest, and a jumbo Green Clean is the way to do it.
