Parisian Beauty Haul
When I find myself in a Parisian pharmacy, I’m like a kid in a candy store.
French pharmacies are notorious for having some of the most amazing cult beauty and skincare products in the world! Though this isn’t my first time diving into those hallowed aisles (check out this post here and here to see some more of my pharmacy picks), anytime I’m in Paris, I always find myself in a pharmacy to restock some of my faves and pick up some new goodies, too!
Deodorant & SPF
I actually ended up picking up some products that I forgot back in LA! Namely, deodorant and sunscreen. Both very very very important considering the summer heat! This Nuxe Deodorant is probably the chicest deodorant I’ve ever used. It’s a roll-on, super refreshing and smells like you spent the day at the spa! Since I was traveling directly from Paris to Hawaii, I knew not having sunscreen was just not an option. This spray-on SPF 50 was perfect for my travel needs. It doesn’t feel sticky or greasy and actually saved my face and shoulders under the Parisian sunshine. While I can’t find the spray-on version online, here’s the same sunscreen in a cream form!
Darphin Night Cream
One of my favorite re-stocks, when I’m in Paris, are my Darphin products! As I’m sure you guys know, Darphin products are some of my holy grail skincare products– but you can’t find them that easily in the states. Most French pharmacies carry the complete line, so I happily grabbed a new Overnight cream!
Nuxe Dry Oil
One of my all-time favorite French pharmacy finds is the Nuxe Dry Oil. It’s a total cult classic and I’ve only found it in stores in France, but luckily, it’s now available on Amazon! It’s great when used in your hair, all over your body, and even as perfume- it’s just all around amazing. It has a sensual musky scent and leaves a beautiful (and not at all greasy) shine.
Patchness Eye Mask
These eye patches are just so good! Not only is gold totally chic and luxe, but it actually can be anti-aging and purifying! They’re great to throw on after a long day, a long flight, and even to wear in-flight. I’ll definitely be picking some more of these up the next time I’m visiting Europe!
Let me tell you guys, I was SO excited to finally get my hands on this cream because nearly every makeup artist I’ve worked with has had this in their kit. It’s been used on me for years and I was never able to grab one until now! It’s great to wear under makeup as a moisturizing primer and has a very silky, milky texture. It’s super lightweight, instantly absorbs into your skin, is not greasy and a total miracle cream that smells so good.
Discovering new beauty products when I travel is one of my favorite things to find when shopping. It’s so interesting to see what’s popular in different parts of the world.
Have you guys used any of these products before? Let me know what you think!
