I usually am way behind on beauty trends even though I’m a beauty blogger. I don’t like to wake up at midnight to be the first to place an order, because sleep > everything. And having a toddler takes up a lot of my attention right now. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t slightly obsess over products that hit the beauty market, and the serums from Farsali are a perfect example of that. Since before the end of the year, I’ve wanted to try their products. It wasn’t until last month that I was finally able to place an order for their ever popular Farsali Unicorn Essence Elixir.
If you’ve been living under a rock like I was, let me bring you up to date on this trendy brand. Farsali is a brand created by Sal Ali, beauty guru, Farah Dhukai’s husband in an effort to create a skincare line that enhanced the look of your makeup. The Farsali brand includes serums, primers, a cleanser and lash enhancer. Their serums and primer are the hot items at the moment and if you take a look at their Instagram you’ll see that every big beauty Instagramer or Youtuber is featuring the product in their makeup routines.
I really wanted to get their Rose Gold Elixir because I’ve been trying out a lot of matte liquid lipsticks and it looked like the solution to a problem we all usually have. Seriously dried out lips! But when Unicorn Essence Elixir was reintroduced and was selling out on Sephora, I knew I better grab this antioxidant serum and primer because EVERY other time I’d seen it, it was already gone and not available for months. Still got my eye on the Rose Gold Elixir, but had to get this one first!
You guys, I’ve been wanting to try this brand since before the holidays and I finally got my hands on this hot little bottle right here. @farsalicare Unicorn Essence Antioxidant Serum and Primer has been so popular that it was always sold out when I checked! It’s oil free, smells like unicorn farts, and feels fantastic on the skin! 💕 I tried it this past weekend and felt that my skin was properly moisturized and ready for foundation —and loved that it was packed with good for your skin ingredients like goji Berry fruit extract and acai fruit extract. Love me some antioxidant power! And the formula is just gorgeous! A pink shimmery liquid that soaks into the skin quickly. Swipe to see a better look! 😍 I need to get that rose gold elixir next! . . . #farsali #farsalicare #farsalounicornessence #antioxidants #serum #primer #farahdhukai #bblogger #ocblogger #beautyblog #beautyblogger #skincare #makeupblogger #makeuplover #skinprep #beautyblogcoalition #sephora #lovelysquares #pursuepretty #crueltyfree #crueltyfreebeauty #crueltyfreeskincare #pink #girly #girly🎀 #beautifulskin #healthyskin #farsaliunicornessence
This dual purpose serum is oil-free, suitable for all skin types, preps the skin for makeup application and fights free radical damage with it’s unique blend of superfruit extracts. The formula is pink and shimmery and totally appeals to my visual senses. I think the scent is possibly Vanilla? It smells like it has more to it than that, but I’m pretty bad at describing scents. Just know it smells good!
Since this is a pricer primer serum for me to use, I only use it if I’m going to wear makeup that day. It absorbs well and does leave my skin feeling smooth and moisturized so my foundations applies evenly. Not an artificial, silicone-like smooth, but your own skin, just better.
I appreciate that the serum has so many great ingredients to it and has a high level of antioxidants for my mid-thirties skin. Acai berry, Elderberry, Goji berry and Blueberry extracts are just a few of the easy to recognize ingredients in this skin prep primer.
I can’t say that my makeup lasts longer with this serum because I think I use a pretty good foundation with holding power, but the fact that my skin has the right level of hydration before I put a foundation on is key for me. If something is too oily my makeup with slide around and wear off around my nose and between my brows.
I’d really like to get my hands on the Rose Gold Elixir next. I mean, you guys, have you seen it? It’s got gold flakes in it! I want gold flakes on my face! Somehow that stuff rubs in and everyone sees to be really impressed with it.
Will you be hopping on the Farsali bandwagon with me?
