Herbfarmacy skincare review


I bought all of these products way back in July when I went to visit the Herbfarmacy HQ (read more on that here) and apart from the eye cream which is still in use the cleanser and the toner have long since been finished. Herbfarmacy is a lovely brand, Soil Association certified and uses herbs grown directly on their own farm in Herefordshire, it is perhaps one of the most idyllic places I have ever visited. These are the products I have been using: 

Wash off cleansing mousse (£15.50 for 100 mls) I tried this product before and it has been repackaged since then and put in to an airless pump dispenser. This is a very unique product, I haven't tried another cleanser quite like it before, it feels like a cream but washes of completely clean and gives a very fresh feeling to the skin. This is the only cleanser in the range and it has been formulated for all skin types, I think very dry skins might not find this hydrating enough for consistent use but most skin types would like this, especially combination or oily. I personally favour a balm in the evenings but this for me is perfect for a post gym cleanse or when you need something that is very fuss free as it is quick and easy to use. It is beautifully scented with Ylang Ylang. 

Rose and Echinacea toner (£17.50 for 100 mls) This is my most repurchased Herbfarmacy product and I absolutely adore it! I have lost track of how many different rosewater toners I have tried but this one is always top of my list, I think it is the Echinacea which sets it apart, as it is very gently astringent whilst the rose is hydrating and cooling. I love the heavy glass bottle this comes in, just gorgeous. I prefer to spray directly on to my face and I do wish the spray was a little more delicate, as some mornings I find I can get rather wet doing it that way if I am not careful but other than that I find this toner to be perfect!

Herbfarmacy Just Eyes (£16.60 for 15 mls) This eye cream is award winning and I can really see why! I actually think this is Herbfarmacy's best kept secret it is simply a fantastic product. The trio of active ingredients are Cornflower, Arnica and Siberian ginseng. The cornflower is soothing and reduces irritation, the Siberian Ginseng is anti-ageing but the star of the show for me is the Arnica which reduces dark circles. The first time I applied this I saw an instant brightening effect under the eye, especially if you spend a bit of time patting it gently in to the eye area it is simply amazing! With continued use I have seen a reduction in the darkness under my eyes and it also fantastically hydrating too. I still have lot's left as you need such a small amount for each use, but when this is finished I will be reordering straight away. 

You can find full ingredients lists on the Herbfarmacy website, this a lovely brand and one that I really enjoy. Have you ever used Herbfarmacy, what are your thoughts?
