In this new V-Day series, we asked beauty insiders and Her World Tribe members to pen heartfelt letters addressed to their most cherished makeup, skincare, and hair care products.

“I’ll be the first to admit that I’m picky about who I choose to enter my life. It’s only because I’ve been hurt one too many times. And over the years, I’ve accumulated a long list of ex-lovers who promised me the world, only to let me down. That is until I found you (Farmacy’s Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm).

From the moment I met you in Sephora, I knew you were different. You’re not flashy. You’re straightforward, easy-to-understand and refreshingly low-maintenance. What you see is what you get. Despite your tough exterior, you deal with stubborn (and oftentimes waterproof) situations delicately and oh-so-gently. You showed me that love will smooth out every bump in the road and on my face – and for that I’m so grateful. You’ve seen my every imperfection, dry patches and angry zits included, but somehow accepted me for them.

Don’t get me wrong, there have been temptations along the way. But with each new addition, I found myself missing all of your best traits: how you care for the environment; how you’re non-toxic and how you care for me on those high-stress, sensitive days. There will never be another you.

For the past five years, we’ve spent our mornings and nights together. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
