This Week's Answer

Farmacy Beauty's Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer is described as a light yet intensely hydrating honey face moisturizer to keep skin plump with hydration. The product is formulated with antioxidant-rich honey, hyaluronic acid and golden cupuaçu butter beads to nourish skin.

The hyaluronic acid complex is reported to hold up to 1,000× its weight in water. The three molecular weights in this honey moisturizer replenish the skin’s moisture reservoir at different levels.

Royal jelly, propolis, fermented soy and cupuaçu butter are utilized to naturally lock in moisture, replenish nutrients and deliver amino acids to maintain skin's elasticity. Additionally, the golden cupuaçu butter beads from the Amazon melt into skin and disappear as they’re absorbed, releasing lasting hydration.
