Farmaline- Online French Pharmacy

While we have a fair few gems over here in the UK, it must be admitted that nobody does skincare quite like the French. Bioderma, La Roche-Posay, Nuxe, Vichy- the list goes on! We're lucky that these brands are getting easier and easier to source in the UK, particularly if you live in London (John, Bell & Croyden just behind Selfridges!) but for those of you further away, you must take to the Internet. 

Now that's where Farmaline come in, an online French pharmacy based in Belgium which boasts such a large range of stock - including the hard-to-find Serozinc! Despite being located abroad, delivery was super speedy and arrived within 48 hours (something particularly great for me, being as impatient as I am).  

The lovely Philippe was kind enough to send me a few things to sample and I'm really excited to try them. The main star of the show was the Bioderma Sébium Masque*, which aims to deeply cleanse pores and prevent blemishes, as well as controlling sebum production. I don't want to give too much away, but all I'll say is that it's a keeper! 

He also included lots of little samples for me to try out, from some of the less well-known French brands which still deserve just as much recognition as the big names. 

I've been really impressed with Farmaline and would certainly use them again, as can you! You can visit their website and have a browse at the multitude of products here.


  1. Will defiantly have to check this website out now!

  2. You're very welcome! ;)
    All the samples I added in are great to use in combination with acné treatments or sensitive skin from acne products. I look forward to your full review on the mask.
    If you have any questions, you know where to find me.
