Farmaline is a website where you can buy top quality ‘hard to find’ brands and most importantly French pharmacy items. I cannot get enough of the stuff! This is a great place to purchase products which are not yet available in the UK. An interesting fact about this online pharmacy is that they are located in Sint-Tridersteenweg BELGIUM… oooh!
I was kindly sent a package with products from Farmaline to try, two of which I picked myself. I picked the La Roche Posay-Serozinc and the Caudalie Lip conditioner which I have been wanting for ages! The rest were nice little surprises.
Below I will explain more about the two main products in a review style:
La Roche-Posay : Serozinc
This is a cleansing and soothing solution made of zinc sulfate. I found this works great on my oily problematic skin type especially when a rosey spot appears. It just slows down the reaction and reduces the redness of the skin. I either us the generously wide spritz over my face or sprat some on a cotton pad. This is done after cleansing and before applying a serum.
Also I accidently spilt hot chocolate over my mum’s arm. Such a fool! But this bad boy soothed the red/purple mark that was left on the skin surface. Such a life saver!
Caudalie : Lip Conditioner
I always rely on a lip balm all the time so this is something I have been using constantly. Such a good brand, top quality, nice smelling balm. I generally use this before any lip product whether it is a highly moisturing lipstick or gloss. My lips are always in need to for that supple base conditioning which keeps the lips in great condition for longer. I think it is very affordable but of course if you go to France you can buy in bulk which may work out cheaper which I did last year. It has a citrus, tangy scent which I this is oh so refreshing. Zestyyy 🙂
Also in the box I received these items which I am still yet to try out:
Shipping is free when you spend over 75 euros which if you think about it, is perfect for that ever increasing shopping basket. Conversion rates to pounds or other currencies are really easy to do too so don’t worry about that! Also delivery takes less than 48 hours!!
What brands will you try?
