Reviewing MOST Hyped & Popular Skincare Products: Drunk Elephant, Farmacy, Krave & More! (Pt. 1)

Whoa so many products, hey guys welcome back it’s
Rowena, it’s Felicia, and today we’re starting a new skincare series
we recently polled you guys and asked you guys on our community tab
of which skincare products you want us to try to see if they’re worth your monies, yeah and then we’re like five or six
hundred comments telling us which brands that you guys
were interested in that you wanted us to kind of review, you know we read through every single
one of those comments and compiled it in a spreadsheet that we took a screenshot for you
guys that was too small that you can really zoom into, so for this first video we selected nine
of the top brands that you guys kept asking about, and that we personally loved
and have tried ourselves, because we do want to give you guys
our personal recommendations, and we wanted this to also
help you guys decide which one of the products under
each brand is worth buying or if you just can spend your money
elsewhere on a different brand, because there’s a lot of products
within a brand, and it can get really overwhelming
sometimes we know from experience, yeah and to give you guys
a little preview today, we’re going to talk about Drunk Elephant
Origins Pharmacy Krave Beauty, Son & Park, Summer
Fridays, Glow Recipe, Thayers and Farsali, so Before we jump into it, make
sure you’ve subscribed, and let’s introduce the wheel of skin care,
we made a wheel with all the nine brands on it very DIY , Summer Friday, it was started by a blogger
Marianna Hewitt as well as Lauren Gores, so they first came out with this one,
which is the jet lag mask, so this was inspired because they were
always traveling jet-setting, and then they just felt that their skin was
so parched and rough and stressed all the time that they wanted to create a mask that
was deeply nourishing and hydrating and soothing because if you think about
when you’re sitting on the plane, it’s so dehydrated so this
is actually perfect, but I actually didn’t use this for a while,
because I thought it was hype, because like everyone had it right, and then when I did,
I was like oh my god. so Felicia’s face broke out in little
bumps a few weeks ago, and it was pretty bad, and
she told me all she use was this, yeah it was inflamed every
single pole was like pop pop pop, you know just like
bumpy and rough, and then it was also flaking
around my mouth like crack, we’ll get to why it was
flaking and cracking, it’s one of these products. but this was really good like it
has this kind of natural scent, it’s just like natural, I love that
this packaging, the blue, the blue and the fact that it
comes in like a painters tube, so it’s a really hydrating mask
that calms soothes inflamed skin and for dry skin as well, so there’s vitamin C,
which helps brighten, vitamin E which is very hydrating, and it’s an antioxidant
that helps fight off radicals, the hydration and the soothing comes
from the Sodium Hyaluronate, and there’s this one thing
that sounds like Arginine which is a, it’s an amino acid that’s
basically got to do with collagen and keeps your skin plump
and youthful and stuff, so you can put a generous
amount on your face, leave on for about 10 minutes,
and wash it off, or you can just leave
it on overnight, which is what I do, and then
you wash it off in the morning, and it’s like wow, Next one, Krave. the first thing for
me is always the packaging, I just love how you get everything
you need on the packaging, so in the front it talks about
the active ingredients, it talks about who needs this
one you can use it, and in the back Kraved
by your skin, it’s like the first brand to
write pH levels on the back, yeah actually even before I knew
about everything about pH levels, I looked at the back, and I’m like
whoa this is a lot of info, but it’s very easy to decide. So the whole brand premise is that
because there are so many brands and products out there, we don’t need all of them, but we’re
like always marketed as needing them, so you press reset and you feed
your skin what it craves, yeah so that’s why you’ll see that
Krave doesn’t have a lot of products, but everything that they do have is
like an essential in the skincare routine, so we have the toner the cleanser
and the sunscreen, the jelly texture how
hydrating it is, you know how sometimes after
you wash your face, it’s like, you can’t move it and it’s
like uncomfortable and you feel like you need to put
something on real quick, so this doesn’t do that, and
that’s why I love it, so in here there’s matcha which is something
that I drink literally every single day, and it is actually one of the most antioxidant
dense things you can find on our planet, so it’s really great for our skin, and
there’s also hemp seed oil which is incredibly hydrating, so it just helps to keep the barrier
of your skin nice and cleansed, but also you hydrate it at the same
time, so it’s not like stripped of everything, and we did a video on how to
cleanse your face probably, there if you guys are curious,
Liah is our friend and we do love her, but if the products are mediocre
we won’t be talking about it you know, so like this is actually
very very great, yeah I felt that’s like
the first time I used it, it was slightly tingly,
but I don’t know if it was, it is it says that when you use it the
first couple of times may be tingly, but I think with time
you get used to it, I don’t know what that
tingly thing was, the caffeine? I don’t know but it felt
really good, it was like you know when you
put tea tree on your face or whatever, it’s like that refreshing tingle,
not like a chemical exfoliation tingle, chemical exfoliation next
we have the Kale-Lalu-yAHA, this is a skin resurfacing
exfoliator with AHA, so it’s got hyaluronic
acid glycolic acid, but also kales spinach
and parsley, so what you do is just put
on a cotton pad on your face, maybe two to three
times a week, this is like 25, it’s actually
a pretty big bottle, you can use it for a long time
since it’s only a few times a week, yeah and then Beet the Sun, I love this, this has quickly grown to become
my favorite sunscreen of all time, it goes on like condensed milk, but it’s not like sticking gross
like condensed milk, it even looks like condensed milk, but
then when you blend it after a couple strokes, it just blends seamlessly into your skin,
and it leaves you with this beautiful glow, it’s like really lightweight, a lot of people
like Felicia aren’t used to wearing sunscreen every day, because sunscreen has just historically
been this like very oily like thick thing that leaves so a white film
on your face, makes you break out,yeah you wanted
to create something that just it’s like entry-level sunscreen just to
get people to start using sunscreen on a daily basis, under makeup on its own,
that’s a great primer, if you guys have been looking into
something that’s a little bit more affordable, and it’s very very effective in what
it does, it’s just simple, next one, Thayers oh nice, so remember earlier we’re talking about
how Felicia broke out in a bunch of little bumps all over her face, a lot of you love this product enjoy
this product, rave on about it, and on Amazon is like
one of the best sellers, so we decided to try one ourselves,
Rowena got the lavender, I got the the original aloe vera, this
is really good for oily skin people, because it’s an astringent, so they have toners and astringents, and astringent are designed to take
the excess oil away from the skin, so when I started using it, I was like okay this must be
great it’s alcohol free, I can just put on however
much I want to, and then I started breaking out
and not like pimples, but it was a rash, it was a rash
on my face and it was all dry down, and then it was like I opened it, and I could feel it crack, and
then I looked into like why, I think because I put on so
much literally like pools of it, and then I would just go
like this onto my face, and then with the way
through with this war, only because I thought
it was alcohol free that I thought it would
be like water you know, It’s like micellar water,
but that’s the difference, moral of the story it’s not, it’s still got a lot of like other ingredients in
there that helped to control your oil, which is a good thing, just
anything too much is not good, which I learned the hard way,
so I’ve been using this for a week or two now, that’s what it’s supposed to,
I liked it before that happened, oh so I gave it a little break and witch
hazel which is their key ingredient is good for inflammation, it’s good for
calming the skin soothing the skin, but yeah just don’t put on too much,
this is a really good toner if you’re starting out, if you’re not too fussed with brands,
it’s kind of like a no-fuss toner, Love heart do you wanna pick, Let’s do Drunk Elephant, only because that was also one of the
most highly requested that you guys commented on, so over here we have the entire line
of Drunk Elephant to show you guys, we look like we’re in a
infomercial, guys it’s not, yeah we just want to say
this isn’t sponsored either, this is just like our thoughts, yeah so the marula fruit belongs
in the same family as mangoes, a similar same sweet fruit, and it is
believed there’s a myth in Africa, that elephants get drunk on eating fermented
marula fruit off of the ground, but isn’t that funny, like why it’s called Drunk Elephant,
because that key ingredient is marula oil, so marula fruit shell aka nut shell, drunk elephant is known for being a simple
clean additive free skincare line, and let’s get into our favorites, let’s start with the cleanser what do you think,
so I really love the texture because it’s a jelly texture, something that not a lot of brands
have for cleansers anyway, and it hasn’t got any
like scent or coloring, is it strong enough for like let’s say if you
just wear sunscreen for the day, yeah yeah and good for double cleansing, and it doesn’t leave it like uncomfortably
stripped, moving on to the baby facial. yeah this one they say that it’s kind of
the same as getting a real facial, because chemical exfoliation is to
like get away the dead skin, is to show your baby skin which is probably why it’s
called baby Sakura facial, like we both use a lot of
chemical exfoliation, but this was still really like
pretty intense, definitely something you
want to use once a week, and more maybe even less, yeah this one’s like probably one
of the most expensive products, it’s like 90 bucks, you will find the
next day your skin is really soft, so if you have the time, if you
have the patience, if you have the money
in your wallet, and you want to invest in a
stronger chemical exfoliant, this is definitely something
worth looking into, but if you’re just starting out, or you just
want to start looking into chemical exfoliants, this may be a little bit too strong, so
then they have three serums, the B Hydra the most like neutral,
it’s just for nourishing and moisturizing, this is vitamin C this is probably what you love, out of these three, both of us agree that this is worth splurging on, the glycolic acid the night serum, actually if you want chemical
exfoliation entry, I would get this from
Drunk Elephant, this one, and then when you
start liking more things, and your skin is more used to it,
then you can purchase this one, because this one does what this one
does but in more of like a daily use kind of way, so in the glycolic night serum, here there is AHA and BHA blend,
including glycolic lactic tartaric citric and salicylic acid, and blend it with raspberry extract,
you use after your toner as a serum, and then before moisturizer, and
if AHA and BHA don’t make any sense to you, there is a exfoliating beginner’s guide up there that we made, so I’ll use this when my skin
is feeling congested or dull, because it helps to break away
that dead skin from the surface, and it said that it’s also really
great for spa treatment, did you know that, there you go,
just read it online, so this serum is really good at
exfoliating unclogging your pores, and it’s also very hydrating, that’s our favorite, and then we
have the peptides that we will pop up, and the Lala retro, okay so the biggest difference
I think a lot of people also confused, one is lighter than the other, so this is the thicker one lala
retro whipped cream, it’s super creamy it’s super hydrating
and it’s just super moisturizing, perfect for winter, they have a really I love these like dispenser things, you just push it so it’s
like portion control as well, so the Protini™ Polypeptide Cream is
just a lighter version of this, it’s got sodium hyaluronate, in terms of ingredients, the polypeptide has water lily extract
as well as soybean folic acid, so it’s just really nourishing as well, but I would say better for like normal
skin or like oily combination skin, like this one’s called whipped cream, this is like intense deep hydration
which my skin loves, so for me the polypeptides they
don’t work as well, I would say just pick one or the other
depending on how oily to dry you felt, then we have these are all the
same thing, I love this oil, me too. all oils are like oily, but this
one’s really like, it’s just like absorbs into your
skin and it just stays in there, yeah it gives you a nice glow, so
with the oil it’s very quick absorbing, and it’s just made of a
hundred marula oil, from the pip of the marula fruit. but it’s also antimicrobial which
helps with things like acne, because sometimes you have
bacteria on your face, which is an organism type of thing, and it just helps with keeping the face
like nice and nourished and cleansed, this one is the one that comes
with a baby Sakura, so these go really well together
as well as this, because I feel like after you
exfoliate your face in any capacity, it’s very important to nourish
to protect it and to hydrate afterwards, if you don’t want to
commit yet to full size, I think there’s sets like
this or sets like this where you can just try
in these sizes, yeah actually that’s how
I started on Drunk Elephant, I bought these two in this little like cylindrical
stuff, it’s like 28 dollars. it’s enough to use for maybe a month,
I found after that it really did help my skin, so then you know purchase this
one, so with this sunscreen, I’ve tried a handful of
sunscreens in my life, because she freckles really easily,
yeah I freckle very easily, and I just feel like maybe
because of the zinc oxide, it actually leaves a pretty
white film on your face, it takes a while for it to blend in,
it’s like an okay sunscreen, and I feel like I still freckle
pretty easily with this on, the Lippe that we both use,
both because we have this, and we both love it but we both
agreed that eighteen dollars for this, it’s like okay I’ll use it maybe
like a couple months, use it for a couple months, yeah and I find I always have to reapply
it because it comes off quite or maybe I just like lick
my lips and it’s off, but it is very hydrating,
it is great, it’s got this vanilla scent,
so that’s the Drunk Elephant. and next Glow Recipe,
so it started by two girls, Sara Lee and Christine Chang, so they first came out with this
one which is the sleeping mask, this is just a sample, but it comes in the rectangular tube thing
that was their baby first product, and then they came out
with this moisturizer, their key ingredient is the
water melon extract, and I actually never knew you
could use watermelon for your actually but fun fact
my grandma used to after I eat watermelon Use watermelon rind to yeah really is that an
asian thing, maybe, who did it, I was just put on face for fun as a kid, she would cut that white part
with the skin, and just like slap it on her face, this is the only brand that I know
that uses watermelon, so watermelon extract is very hydrating
because there’s a bunch of essential vitamins, and it is also really good for
soothing irritated skin, so the sleeping mask which is something
that you put on overnight has a bunch of AHAs which are really gentle on the skin, which
is why you can sleep overnight in it, and it’s like this really thin texture,
yeah it’s very light, it’s kind of like a wonky gel like
consistency that could separate, so sometimes you need to
give it a good shake before scooping it out
with a little spoon, and sometimes the spoon
like it won’t come out, so you have to like really dig it, what they did do really well is get
that millennial pink in there, so the glass container is super awesome, so in the watermelon glow sleeping mask, there’s peony root which is good
for brightening and soothing the skin, and I feel like most other like all
the active ingredients in the glow mask is in the moisturizer, so what I love doing with this, this is something I actually use
daily in the morning especially, to give it like an extra
boost of hydration, Three players of moisturizing,
cuz my skin is that dry, you guys can’t tell right now,
but it’s getting pretty flaky, would you say you
would buy both, this one for sure, the glow recipe I just, I think it’s like a fun sleeping mask, that’s the thing, if I were to choose
between like this sleeping mask and the summer fridays jet lag mask, I would do the jetlag, I just feel like
it’s way more nourishing, Next up, Son & Park, I’ll be honest, I don’t know much about
celebrity makeup artists, so if there’s a Jen Atkin in
Korea who split into two men, it would be Mr. Son
and Mr. Park, I actually didn’t know
it was to two people, Mr. Son was the celebrity
makeup artist for Song Hye-kyo, she was my favorite
because in Full House, her and Rain oh my
gosh she’s so pretty. so Son & Park are also known as the
pioneers of the whole like dewy natural makeup look in Korea that’s now I think taken over our
world, which I am a huge fan of, because I do feel like we should let
our natural beauty shine, let your light shine through, the active ingredients include
papaya extract which helps renew the skin surface by
lifting impurities and dead skin cells for brighter smoother skin, there’s also green tea which is an
awesome antioxidants, and there’s also rose flower water
orange fruit extract and lavender water which provides
deep hydration, they really believe that skin care is the
foundation of having like flawless makeup, because if you start off with like
canvas then no matter what you slap on, it’s not gonna be that great, so beauty water is a combination of a toner and a cleansing water, so do you wash it off, No no, so it’s kind of like a toner, so there’s a few uses for this beauty
water, one is the very straightforward toner, you put it on a cotton pad, and
you can wipe your face with it, and then you follow up with
a bunch of other products, or under your makeup as
like the first step to really create like a good
base for your makeup, yeah because actually the worst thing
you can do is apply makeup on to dry flaky skin, because you can really tell moisturized
skin and makeup and like not enough moisturized skin, this beauty water tones hydrates
and gently exfoliates all in one step, so how often do you use
this as a toner, everyday, this is pretty huge it is,
how much $30, I really like the smell I don’t
know what it is it’s like floral, I’m sold Origins. alright so these are my
kind of favorite Origins, I really love the brand, and can you tell me the
origins of origin, so the logo is like
these two trees, but it actually stands
for yin and yang, it’s powered by a nature
proven by science, so that’s just kind of means they use like a lot of natural ingredients but everything has to do with like
how it actually works on the skin, the reason why there’s different
colors for each one is because each of these stand
for its own line, and they each have a separate
key ingredient, the key ingredient for this one
is willow herb and sunflower oil, I really love this, and if you guys
are into cleansing oils, this is actually a
cleansing oil jelly, so when you put it
on it’s like a jelly right, but then you like
lather it a little bit with water, and it turns into
this milky froth, and it dissolves oil
gets it out of the pores, How can you froth it. No no, it just blends into my skin. now you just have saliva on me, Saliva willow urban sunflower oil, No, moving on, so yeah this is kind of like double
cleansing but in one, but sometimes they leave like
gross residue, so I would say it’s better if
you wear makeup, you don’t necessarily need
to use this if you’re not, so then you have this
line with ginseng, but there’s also coffee
beans as the key ingredient, and that’s good for brightening, this is gel moisturizer so I use
it like basically all year-round, but you can also layer it as well, and it’s just kind of like a no-fuss
gel moisturizer that helps to like brighten the skin in the morning,
and then these two are my favorites for congested skin, because the key ingredient
is, can you guess, charcoal, anything black
is like charcoal, this is relatively new, and
it’s really cool, because it’s a metallic color,
and it’s got honey in there as well, so honey is a natural antioxidant,
and it’s good for inflammation, it’s good for soothing,
it’s good for hydrating, so it purifies and kind of like helps to unclog
your pores but clean it out as well, so it dries and becomes this kind of
like velvety smooth texture, know this is very different from
glamglow, this mask you just put on, but how is this charcoal mask
different from glamglow, so I feel like the glamglow mud
mask are way more muddy, it’s like drier, and then you can
see your pores, pulls out the oils, yeah yeah but this one
is a much softer, like the mask it’s still
like flexible on the skin, but it doesn’t kind of get to that glamglow level, sometimes I’ll like use mask
under different areas of the face especially if you have combination
skin so like around here, maybe you want a
moisturizing mask, and then maybe just around the pores in
the forehead you want a mud mask, I wouldn’t necessarily
say get both of these, which one would you
recommend, like I want to try one, this one is
better for like really oily skin, and this is good for oily combo, and this goes without saying if you
guys have answers to any questions we’re asking each other, because we’re all exploring
on our journey together, let us know down below
what your favorites are, how they compared to the different
products that we brought up or even products we
didn’t bring up, because I’m sure many
people are very curious, alright since we have
two products left, let’s just go with FARSÁLI,
you talked about it, okay so the unicorn elixir we
had it but we couldn’t find it, yeah it’s in a purple bottle, and then there’s this 24k
infused beauty oil, this brand was founded by a husband who
wanted to create something for his wife who was just troubled, honey my skin, and then
next day I got you, so the name is a combination of
his wife’s name which is Farah, and then Sal Ali, So FARSÁLI, I don’t know if they
have any other products, but we had the two face oils, so this
one’s got yet 24k gold in it, it’s like really extra, yeah so we’ve
actually almost come to the end, I just broke the cap, so there’s like
little flakes of gold in it, okay so actually gold was used in the
Tang dynasty for women doing like mask and stuff, and they used to just like cover
their faces with it, and I know there’s also mask that you
can do now that also replicate using gold, but I think it’s more of like
a luxurious thing, I don’t know about like this isn’t real
gold, you know what I mean, what I love about these oils is that
one it smells really good, it doesn’t smell bad, I was just a little, I don’t
know what smell, I don’t know I was expecting
the smell of gold or something, which is a bank, but the purple one I remember
smell more like grape oil, so how do you use
these facial oils is you wash your face you tone
you serum and you moisturize, and then you can put a little
bit of facial oil at the end, or you can use this as a primer
for your makeup, you can actually mix facial oils
like this into your foundation to make it thinner
and more glowy, and is that what the unicorn
elixir is known for, yeah it’s kind of like a primer for makeup
that you can mix into your makeup, but to also wear alone, so that it’s like nourish, It can also be used as highlighter, so I would say in terms of like a facial oil
prices around the benchmark of what it normally is, is it worth it, I like it,
I really do like it, it’s like luxurious as well, I would
actually buy this over marula oil, really, because the marula
is like 90 bucks, that’s true, so if you don’t have money
to buy marula, I would say this is like a
really good facial oil as well, and there’s multi uses to this oil, last one Farmacy, Farmacy is farm to face,
farm to face, not farm-to-table, farm to face, the main ingredient of all these
products is the echinacea green envy which is a patented product
from Farmacy, it’s the foundation of every
single one of these products, and why it works the way it does, so I know this was the very first product
that I bought from them before we like, we actually went to one of their
events for the launch of this, but I tried this one when I had
inflammation as well, and you know because honey is very
soothing and calming hydrating, helps with everything, everything that you said,
but in this honey mask, it’s so cool because you put it on, well it’s got this magnetic spatula,
that actually works with, there’s a magnetic thing on all of them, and then you scoop a little bit out,
we can do some now, it’s kind of like this, and then the cool thing is
how you’re supposed to put it on your skin is you put it on right, and then
you kind of spread it, but what you have to do,
wow it’s like waxing, no but feel it, it’s heated, and you have to actually work
it in, yeah you work it in, and it turns milky, and you feel it,
it’s like hot, farm tech to face, farm tech it’s so cool, so that’s
when you leave it on, like you can’t just put it on
there and let it chill, I really love this because it
hasn’t got just honey, it’s got like, you know how ingredients
work together, it’s got vital chemical cichoric acid
which is a natural antioxidant and it actually helps the honey penetrate
deeper and hydrate deeper into the skin. I use this when my skin was in pain,
I use it when I need hydrating, and there’s a lot of it, oh it’s also
honey is anti-inflammatory, I mean if you’re all about like natural
natural, you can just squirt honey on your face, massage activated vitamin C mask,
oh my god you know what I just realized, all their masks are massage activated, okay so this one, why the color is
like this is because you put it on and it’s purple, and then in little to no time
you’ll see that it turns green, because it needs heat to activate it, so this mask has obviously vitamin C
because it’s a vitamin C mask, but also bentonite clay and kaolin, which is really good at
drawing out impurities toxins, it’s basically like a
detoxifying face mask and there’s a lot of natural
products that I love, which include sugar cane orange
lemon sugar maple, aloe and a superfood blend of Apple
broccoli kale blueberry and cucumber, this just sounds like something I put
in a smoothie and drink, so my kind of rule of thumb is if there’s
these many great ingredients if you can eat it, they should
be great for your skin, and then there’s this honeymoon
glow serum which we both love, this is a super potent and powerful
punch of 14% AHA and BHA for your skin, so it’s really good at jump to resurfacing
your skin, leaving this very dewy pretty glowy skin, just for reference, the drunk
elephant glycolic was 12% AHA, this is 14, which is why this is a little bit
more tingly but only for like 10 to 15 seconds, it feels like something is definitely
there, but yeah it’s a serum, so you follow up with a moisturizer,
and then wake up in the morning, and it’s like, and then
wear sunscreen, wear sunscreen especially
after using something like this, and this is something that
you should build up to, so maybe try using it once a week, and then maybe work up to two to three
times a week and a little more over time, this is Farmacy honey
drop lightweight moisturizer, I love using this during
the summertime, now that it is fall / winter,
it’s too lightweight for me, a long-lasting lightweight moisturizer
combining echinacea green envy honey, triple hyaluronic acid complex
and a cupuaçu butter beads, apply to skin in the morning and
evening using the spatula scoop, put a small amount between
the palm of hands, apply to the face in upward and
outward sweeping motions, I haven’t used this yet, but it’s so light,
it’s very lightweight and hydrating, wow it’s it looks like her hands wet,
yeah it’s so thin whoa, all of their line of products this is my pick,
yeah very interested in trying this, totally forgot about but worth mentioning is
the Farmacy coconut gel sheet mask so this is the brightening one, they also have a hydrating one which is yellow,
I just personally love coconut gel mask, because I feel like it fits to
the contours of your face, but what do you mean coconut gel,
it’s like a silkier, oh no it’s like a gel mask,
it’s not a sheet, it’s not dipped in serum, it’s just a layer
of gel that just if there’s pockets of air you can just very
easily tap the pockets of air out, so to me I feel like it’s
far more form-fitting, and it just may be it’s
all in my head, but yeah it feels
more comfortable, it stays put compared
to a sheet mask, and sometimes I just feel
it the edges of a mask, they’re just falling off,
they’re sliding off my face, but the thing is these
babies are six dollars each, so it’s pretty expensive
for a pop, but maybe if you’re into
sheet mask, then this is good, because
it’s also got collagen, for the brightening mask
it’s actually one of my favorites, and it does exactly what it says, what about the hydrating one,
it does exactly like what it says, very very hydrating, and it’s great
for if you have hyperpigmentation or for me freckles, so I think the coolest thing about Farmacy
is that it’s like fama cultivated you know because it’s from the
flower and the honey, but it’s also like scientific in a way,
because it’s like heat activated and all this stuff, farm to face, the recap of all the
products that we mentioned in this probably very long video but you know we wanted
to fit in like everything, and there’s so much
more coming, yeah like seriously so
many brands out there which is one of the reasons why we
wanted to make this video anyway, so that you guys know a little
bit more about each brand, and the best selling product or
best products within it, so for this video it may seem like we
recommended 80% of the products, but it is because these were the most
highly requested brands you guys picked, and also the brands that
we’re most familiar with, so of course these are our babies, yeah it just so it happened that like the ones
you guys were curious about we also love yeah so if you have any other questions,
leave them below about anything here, or even like extended product within
these brands, or even more brands more products, or brands you feel like we
should try and test, and we should know about that we should
add onto Rowena’s already like hardcore excel sheet, so in the next episode, we’ll be featuring
a bunch of other ones as well, including the ordinary, and I’m thinking about a couple

    I know I'm late to the party, but I know for me when I am using chemically-based products and then I switch to a natural product it makes my skin tingle. It does this, because it's almost a detox-type tingle.

  • Oolong Witch

    One company I can't say enough good things about is CocoKind. So amazing!!!! Absolutely unbelievable, cruelty free, organic, vegan and simple ingredients. Love! Highly recommend. I use they products every day. I'm addicted.

  • Samantha Mayo

    and DEFINITELY think you should try out Limelife by Alcone skincare (formerly Limelight) !!

  • IVY P

    I'm using the good molecules daily brightening and color correction if I wanted to use drunk elephants night glycolic acid would it react badly to each other

    I love this video. Exactly what I was looking for about Farmcy. Does anyone know how I could use the Farmacy Honeymoon Glow in a Korean skincare routine? Since it has that much of AHA I'm not sure about using it in my second to last step… but I really don't know, I'm not an expert so if someone could give me some advice I'd be so appreciative^^ I have been looking at this product for some time now but I don't know how I could incorporate it into my routine.

  • Thuy Gamilla

    Might be a dumb question but why do we use a cotton ball/pad when we use a toner? I pour toner in the palm of my hand and just spread it on my face like lotion. Is that harmful or, at the least, helpful? Help @beautywithin

  • Amy Wilson

    THANK YOU for breaking down and explaining the drunk elephant items. Not many people do it as well and as clear.

  • Stephanie Campos

    i have really bad whiteheads on my chin and i need help on what cleanser to buy! (a whole skincare routine would be helpful as well). please help my chin its so bad.

  • RMK Alh

    Hi! I adore your channel. You should try the Clarins dry touch sunscreen! it's amazing and i didn't find anyone reviewing it.

  • Steven Adrian

    I used krave matcha cleanser and boy it dried my skin so bad! my face felt so tight after i washed my face with it. But when i used other cleanser, my skin didn't feel tight. I just left it in my bathroom shelf

  • Alexis Evans

    You didn't really say anything about the Drunk Elephant C-Firma Day Serum I think it's called 😢 I just started using it and wanted to see what color it's supposed to be, mine is pretty dark and has a strongish smell

  • Madie Buenaventura

    I experienced the same with Thayers. Now I know why my skin broke out while using it. I also used it too much 😅

  • Nicole Jade Gonzaga

    I love your videos. You two bounce off each other really well. As a newcomer into the skin care world/realm, your videos have helped inform me about certain products! I love the animations and the aesthetic of the videos. You both are goals! Would love some advice on what you guys think of brands like ultravioletteau, natio skin care, josie maran, TATA harper, estee lauder advanced night cream, KIELHS, Jurlique, Then I met you, Neogen, Biologique Recherche Lotion P50, Youth to the People, Sunday Riley and MURAD!!!

  • purplecloud510

    Hi! Love your videos. Rowena what brand is your top? Is the belt harness thing separate from your top? It’s soo cute!

  • briana azad

    Hi! What did Rowena mean by "freckling easily" when referring to the Drunk Elephant sunscreen? I am extremely sensitive to sunscreens myself, and the DE sunscreen seemed to make my face break out into small bumps everywhere and I'm wondering if Rowena is referring to the same thing.. If so, do you girls have any good sunscreen recommendations besides the Beet the Sun (out of stock)?

  • Organize with Andria Proctor

    Can you tell me what your top 5 products are that you would buy from that group?
    I would also love to hear a review for Sunday Riley and Clinique including the acne line.

  • Ashley Lunk

    You guys have educated me so much! 2 weeks since I started binge watching your videos and my skin is so much better! You guys are too cute 💖💖💖

  • nashburn

    I tired farmacy honeymoon glow for 2 months in hopes to replace my beloved but very expensive Sunday Riley lactic acid treatment. I also wanted something with BHA in it. Unfortunately it did nothing for me. I started looking at their ingredients & didn’t see a BHA listed. But they claim there’s aha & BHA. I’m confused.

  • xRosesxBloomx

    I've used thayers toners before… I don't know. People rave it clears skin and its so great and like.. I use it, and while its not bad, it doesnt irritate my skin… It just doesnt do anything. No reactions or dryness but no real benefits either. I always discontinue using it because it doesn't do what it claims. I'm not going to spend my money on something just because it doesn't irritate my skin when i can use something else that doesn't irritate my skin AND does what it claims.

  • Emily Li

    OMGGGG watermelon rind !!!! My mom was like you can use it to “WASH”your face and it’s good for you so EVERYTIME🤣 I always wipe my face with it 😭😭😭

  • Kit Samarakone

    Jack black spf lip balm is THE BEST lip balm ever. I’ve tried them all because I have dry lips! This is the one I buy in bulk and go back to time and again

  • Suzanne Teh

    Which would you recommend between The Ordinary Gylicolic Acid Toning Solution & Krave Beauty Kale-lalu-yAha? I notice they are both toner/more watery type of AHA so would really love to know how you would compare them and which you would recommend.

  • 10anisaishah

    Does the drunk elephant’s night serum causes purging like the other chemical exfoliants? I’m tempted to try but too afraid because I haven’t tried any chemical exfoliant before.

  • Inspirapist Bee

    You guys shall probably try Inna Organic! Their entire line is pretty awesome. I have a sensitive skin but sheet masks work fine on me 🙂 Inna Organic is from Taiwan, they are certified by Cosmos and verified by EWG. Hidden gems in organic skin care and I totally love it!

  • Love is what is

    I wish I had enough money to buy one of these products while y’all have every product from every brand! I love watching these videos. I get to live my skincare dreams vicariously through you:)

  • raspberry

    You said you to use alot of cemical exfoliants, but than one of you said, if my skn is dull i use exf. product, but if you using a lot of exfoliants how can youre skn ever be dull or with dead skin???

  • Jay Tee

    Although I love the information you provide, your over-the-top goofiness is annoying. You're not teenagers, but it seems that you are trying to act like you are.
    I'll keep watching, but I'll keep cringing too.

  • Yamel Anaya

    To anybody with a darker skin tone: Does the sunscreen leave an ashy or white cast? Having dark skin, its hard to find a sunscreen that won't leave me looking weird and ashy


    how long does the baby facial drunk elephant last after opening? i may have had it for 1-2 years and i find that now it doesn't sting as much as it used to.. does that mean it doesn't work properly anymore or just that my skin is used to chemical peels?

  • Kevin Jang

    I actually preferred Glow Recipe's Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask to the Watermelon Sleeping Mask, because it is creamier for dry to normal skin. They recently came up with a renewed version of the avocado-based mask with retinol in it.

  • Leslie D Tucker

    Sooo they use almost everything everyday 😂🤦🏽‍♀️.. got it… I wonder what combination of brands you use. Do you use multiple toners and moisturizers?

  • Sam McGuire

    Just a heads up…the farmacy brightening gel masks r $52 for 3 on Amazon thru the link they provided in the description but they're on Sephora for $6 each 👍

  • Justine's Mic

    i like, douse my face in the thayer’s witch hazel astringent and nothing bad happens to my skin. so i guess it really depends on your skin type. 🙂

  • Joey Peralta

    please include yu-be moisturising skin cream, i use it on my lips when its super dry and other parts such as knees, feet and elbow.
