It’s been so long since my last sample stash post, even though my collection of samples is still as huge as ever! I wasn’t testing out anything for a few months as I had a pretty horrible dermatitis outbreak a couple months ago, so I was keeping everything very minimal for a while. Now that my skin is back under control I’ve been gradually digging in to my sample stash again!
For this post I’ll just be focusing on one brand – FOM London (Freshness of the Morning). FOM are a UK based brand specialising in high quality natural skincare. I received a couple of trial sized products in June’s SoukSouk box and I’ve been pretty impressed by how long these little samples have lasted me!
First up is the Antioxidant Facial Mask which comes in powder form. The main ingredient is bentonite clay, enriched with a few other ingredients such as olive leaf, chamomile, lavender and rosehip. To use this mask you just mix a little of the powder with water to make a paste, apply evenly to the face and leave for about 10 minutes before washing off.
This mask is for toning and detoxifying and it also stimulates circulation, so I did find my face looked a little red afterwards (definitely one to use in the evening)! The overall results are clearer, brighter skin, and I even noticed a reduction in pore size too. I think this is suitable for most skin types, except for dry or particularly sensitive skin.
The second product is by far my favourite of the two! The Revitalising Hair Serum is designed to nourish and protect the hair, giving shine and moisture. Some of the main ingredients include jojoba, rosehip, olive squalane, manketti and passion flower oils. It’s very highly concentrated and also contains a blend of essential oils said to encourage hair growth.
I’ve been using a few drops through the lengths of my hair after washing and I love how soft this makes my hair feel! It can also be used as a more intensive treatment applied to the hair and scalp a few hours before washing, but I haven’t tried this as I didn’t want to use up too much of the sample in one go. I’ve been really liking this hair serum so I’m very tempted to purchase full size, especially as it’s on sale at FOM at the moment!
Have you tried anything from FOM before?
