My list of things to do while in Paris grows each and every time I’m in the city. From the Eiffel Tower (duh) to the best Pho spot ever, there are places I stop by each time I’m here! One spot you might not know about? The pharmacy! The French pharmacy is a magical place, filled with beauty products that are as amazing as they are affordable. So my team and I stopped by the little pharmacy in our arrondissement and stocked up to bring you my five french pharmacy finds!
First on the list, the Bioderma Crealine H2O. This makeup remover is pretty much magic in a bottle! It cuts through the heaviest makeup in a single swipe of a cotton swab all while being super gentle on your skin. Even waterproof mascara! Unlike a lot of H2O makeup removers, this one doesn’t leave a gross oily residue on your skin. This scentless cleansing water is quite possibly the gentlest (and most effective) makeup remover. Luckily, you don’t have to hop on a plane to France to get your hands on some – it’s sold on Amazon! (But if you do hop on a plane to Paris- read this first!)
This eye lift cream has been a lifesaver this fashion week. If you read my PFW Day 4 post, you know I was sick in bed for the better part of the day. And while getting some much-needed rest helped my skin a lot, I also used this eye cream to help brighten my eyes. It’s designed to reduce dark circles, which is something you know I struggle with a lot, and puffiness by supporting your natural circulation. You can use it in the morning and at night, or throughout the day if you need a little pick me up!
Rene Furterer Lumicia
Now to give your hair a little love. Just like traveling can wreak havoc on your skin – your hair can take a toll too. Especially if you use a straightener/curling iron. First, make sure you’re using shampoo & conditioner that works well and nourishes your hair depending on its type. Second, spray some of this Rene Furterer Lumicia on it! It gives a gorgeous shine, protects your hair and detangles, what’s not to love?
NUXE Huile Prodigieuse
Body oils aren’t really that popular in the US, but ever since I’ve been traveling to France – I’ve fallen in love. They give a light scent and the perfect amount of glow. You can use it in place of your perfume or layer it with your scent to give it an extra little something!
Avène Cleanacne Spot
You all know how much I love Avène products and this one is no different. Remember that pimple I had on my chin during NYFW that I talked about on snapchat? I wish I had this product then! This spot acne treatment is perfect for those pesky blemishes that show up out of no where. It drys, purifies and mattifies!
