Calling all fans of Farmacy's Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm: Starting today you can get your hands on a jumbo-size version of this beloved product, but only while supplies last. And get this: The original 3.4-ounce size costs $34, while the limited-edition, larger size gives you double the product for $58. You do the math (or if you're terrible at math like I am, just understand that this is a pretty sweet deal).
We've already expressed our love for this minty, balm-to-oil cleanser, which won a Best of Beauty Award in 2017. Sephora buyers apparently love it too, since it continues to be the retailer's number-one seller in the cleanser category.
"It's so widely loved because of its ultra-hydrating yet gently exfoliating formula that melts away dirt and makeup instantly without leaving any oily residue," notes Mina Chae, director of marketing and consumer engagement at Farmacy.
We definitely agree, but why the larger size? "This time of year, customers are always requesting larger sizes for the holidays," she says, so the jumbo version is "the perfect solution for beauty enthusiasts, professionals, and novices alike, inspiring endless creativity this fall and winter season."
If you're new to this type of cleanser, we won't fault you. I was late to the cleansing balm craze myself. But once I started using one as part of my nightly double-cleansing routine, I was hooked. "They are a great first step for removing makeup before using a traditional cleanser to clean the pores out effectively," explains board-certified dermatologist Arash Akhavan of the Dermatology and Laser Group in New York City. "Sometimes, for extremely dry skin such as with people suffering from eczema, a balm cleanser used alone may help prevent excessive drying for the patient."
