My New French Pharmacy Finds

As many of you know, the French pharmacy is one of my favorite places to go in Paris. Remember my pharmacy finds from my last trip? Since I’m back in Paris for Couture Fashion Week, I knew I had to stock up on more! I’ve heard so many amazing reviews from these brands and decided to pick up a popular product from each. Some of them are new French pharmacy finds and others are ones I brought from home such as this Caudalie detox tea alongside the Caudalie cleansing water and the Avéne face spray.




The Caudalie tea is a must have because it really helps me detox. I’ve found that my body retains more water more when I travel, so I drink this once a day before bed to help clear out my system. The Caudalie Cleansing Water is great for removing every last bit of makeup prior to continuing my skincare routine, and it’s a lifesaver at the end of a long day. The  Avéne Thermal spray has been a favorite for years and it doesn’t get more fresh than this one. I take it on the plane too!

The new products I picked up are strictly French-based brands besides the Skincueticals Retexturing Activator which can be found in the U.S. and can be purchased here. Like I said before, I’ve heard so many good things about the products I picked up so when I was in the pharmacy- I felt like a kid in a candy store! The first thing I grabbed was the La Roche-Posay Lipikar Baume which is a moisturizer and the dermadvanced Micellar water. I’ve used a micellar water before, but I’ve only tried the one from Bioderma so I’m excited to try this one out! Lastly, I picked up the SkinAdvance Paris night creme.

Would you guys like me to do an updated review once I’ve tried out these products for a while? Let me know down below!

    I love when you praise french pharmacy skincare products because 1. I’m French and 2. I’m obsessed with french pharmacy too. I use La Roche Posay and Bioderma mainly.
    I’d like to see an update review of your skincare and a new article of your empty out products of January.

    La Roche posay is a French product line that has been around for decades. They recently started selling it all over the US, you can find it in cvs, ulta, target, etc

    A lot of dermatologist prescribed to their clients so that should tell you a lot about this brand.

    But the French pharmacies carry a wider range of products that they don’t carry in the USA. I have yet to be dissapoined by any of their products. I highly recommended them to anyone! I have oily skin prone to acne and this line has saved me! I love it!

    Lipikar Baume is a great cream – balm. I use it on both my babies (I have twin girls) as their allover body and face hydrating cream. Since I started using it after recommedation from our peadiatrician they never ever had even the slitghtest dryness. And they both have very sensitive skin and at some point had baby eczema. After using Lipikar Baume after their bath every night and every day after I clean their faces and every time I change their diapers and feel that they need some extra hydration, during those very cold, dry days of winter, their skin is perfect, with no sign of dryness at all. I use it on me too for hydrating my body after my showers. And I use the Lipicar Gel Lavant as the babies body and hair wash, it is great too!

  • Great review! I love French beauty products as well!❤

    I’d love a review of all of these great products! <3 🙂 I've been really liking a lot of French beauty products lately, and would love to learn more about them, as well as some of their most popular finds! Hope you're having lots of fun in Paris!

    XO, Elizabeth

  • excited to try the claudelie tea! I’ve never heard of it.

    You can find La Roche Posay at Target ! Not sure if they carry Lipikar Baume since I went specifically to try out their sunscreen… I got the 50 SPF mineral ultra light fluid — matte finish, not oily, and tinted ! So far, loving it 🙂

  • Angel says:

    I also really recommend blemish and age defense serum! I personally feel like it works better than the re texturing serum but both are wonderful products. The re texturing serum is a great night time moisturizing serum.

  • I love Caudalie! Looking forward for your Couture week posts!

  • Leah says:

    Wow! Great products!

  • I had no idea that Caudalie made a Cleansing Water! It sounds amazing!
