Herbfarmacy Celebrates 10th Anniversary With New Look

Herbfarmacy is an award-winning natural skincare brand that I’ve had on my ‘to check out’ list for a while but had just not got around to. It’s the kind of ‘slow beauty’ skincare that appeals to me. No outrageous claims, hand made, small batch using time honoured, organic ingredients and herbs grown on its farm in Herefordshire.

I love organic stuff. I love great minimalist design. I love wood. Tick tick tick – well hello Abel! I’m allergic to synthetic parfum (a word that can legally cover up to 200 different chemicals) so don’t experiment with new perfumes very often.
