Interested in brands like Korres, Vichy, Rene Furterer, Kneipps?
Move over Sephora there’s a much cheaper store in town.
Reading the reviews of Farmaline was terrifying. Especially since I was reading them after placing a $150 order.
Was this just a phishing scheme to get my credit card details? A virus to steal all my bank account information? Or simply a straight-forward old fashioned take the money and run con game?
Whatever it was, the damage was done so all that was left was to sit and wait and see if my products ever arrived. Upon second glance, the poor English and amateur graphics/website design definitely left me wondering how many days I would wait until I called my credit card to dispute the charges.
Well, obviously since this is on my blog, Farmaline turned out to be a brilliant secret source for upscale, especially European, skincare brands at the lowest of all prices.
I ordered 6 or 7 Dr. Hauschka products. The first, Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream, was $21.88, an almost $20 savings over CVS’ $42 and Whole Foods $41. Even with shipping (free shipping is only available in Europe), it came out at least 30% lower than any available price–with any discount or promo code–anywhere else.
Not only did it arrive on a timely basis (approximately one week after placing my order) and well-packed in perfect condition, and it also had a bonus Dr. Hauschka product attached to each Rose Cream. I tested it and it was definitely the same, authentic product, albeit with the German label.
I placed another other this week, a few months after my first, for sunscreens and shampoo. If you are still reading this, everything must have arrived just right.
I highly recommend trying them if you want to save 20-50% off the price of upscale skincare products.
