Ladies and gentleman, I present to you… Farmaline. It is quite literally the one stop shop for all beauty bloggers/lovers, skincare fanatics and make up artists. Why you ask? Well, that would be because it stocks everything you could ever want or need. It’s an online pharmacy that doesn’t just sell medication, vitamins and minerals but some of the best skincare and hair care brands out there. Farmaline stock some of my absolute favourite brands and products (especially some of those hard to get French brands) such as Bioderma, La Roche-Posay, Vichy, NUXE, Darphin, Korres and so on and so forth. You name it, you’ll probably find it here. Farmaline is based in Belgium but they ship products to the UK at incredibly reasonable prices. Farmaline contacted me to ask if I’d like to review some samples and raise awareness about their website, naturally I said yes. The brands they stock are brands that I love and the delivery is super speedy. Let’s move on to what I received in my package, shall we?
I received a sample bottle of NUXE Huile Prodigieuse* (£14.99 50ml) which I had been lusting after for months but never got around to buying (I actually ended up buying the 50ml size after playing around with the sample as pictured above). It is a gorgeous scented dry oil that can contains six precious plant oils and is incredibly hydrating and good for the skin. I absolutely adored this stuff – I can’t get enough. A full review of this beauty will be coming soon so watch this space. I also received a second sample from NUXE which was NUXE Body Fondant Shower Gel with Almond & Orange Flower Petals* (£7.16) which also had the most incredible scent and left my skin feeling soft, clean and smooth. I am a massive NUXE fan and can’t rave about their products enough.
Farmaline sent my favourite moisturiser of the moment which made me incredibly happy. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat* (£14.99) is a perfect lightweight moisturiser for people like me with oily skin, it’s hydrating but also creates a lovely smooth matte surface for your make up too. I did a rave review of this product in full here. I LOVE this stuff. I also received a little sample shampoo, Rene Furterer Curbicia Lightness Regulating Shampoo* (£9.31) which is a brand I’ve heard of but never tried before so I pretty excited to give it a whirl. I have oily hair which means I find that I am washing it every day. This is specially formulated for my hair type and helps regulate excess sebum meaning you can go longer between washes. It smells fresh, light and left my hair feeling nice and clean.
The last two samples I got in my box of goodies were Galenic Argane Milk Cream Nutri-Body* (£20.11) which is a great moisturiser for dry skin and it melts in to a milky liquid on contact with your skin. It’s best to use this after a shower or bath to ensure you lock in all of your bodies moisture. It contains lots of lovely plant oils that are incredibly good for your skin. Last but not least was Flavo-C Serum* (£17.07) which is to be used twice daily to stabilise your skin. You only need to use one or two drops, massage the serum in to the skin – it contains vitamin C which helps increase collagen stimulation which will improve the look and feel of your skin.
So, there you have it… Amazing or what? I got a great variety of different products and I got to try a few new brands too. This makes me a very happy Erin.
