One thing I adore about France (along with their patisseries, moules et frites and beautiful homes with shutters) is their pharmacies and skincare brands! Whenever I go to France I make sure to pop into at least one chemist to browse their skincare aisles.
I thought I’d write up a blog post featuring some of my favourite French Skincare products!
Avene Triacneal Cream –
My skin is being a nightmare at the moment and I’m really suffering from inflamed, angry under the skin blemishes that take ages to heal and fade. Luckily I’ve added this to my regime and have been loving it. It contains the ingredients to reduce inflammation, imperfections and Glycolic Acid to buff away dead skin. I’ve been using this at night time underneath a moisturizing serum and spots have really started to fade now.
Avene Clearance Mask –
You know I’m addicted to face masks at the moment and this is another I’ve been loving. Again suited for acne-prone skin, this helps to reduce sebum and mattify the skin. It’s an odd formula containing small gritty bits which, after leaving on the skin for 5 minutes, you can rub in circular motions for extra exfoliation. Just be sure to moisturize well after hand.
Bioderma Sensibo H20 –
I hardly need to write about how much I love Bioderma. It’s my go-to eye makeup remover for lazy days and I always stock up on this when I visit France.
Bioderma Sebium Matifying Fluid –
For days when my skin feels particularly oily I wear this underneath my makeup. It’s a creamy gel texture which once applied, makes the perfect base for my foundation and instantly mattes my skin.
Eucerin is fast becoming one of my absolute favourite skincare brands. Their products are easy to find in Boots stores, are great quality and leave my skin feeling happy. I have a full blog post on my current skincare regime coming up so stay tuned to hear more about these products in more detail.
There we have it, some of my current French skincare favourites. There are a couple I’ve missed out from the likes of Vichy & La Roche Posay so maybe I’ll do a part #2 of this post!
Also, online beauty store Escentual.com currently have up to 1/3rd off all of their French Skincare Products until the end of October (HERE) so be sure to check that out if you like the sounds of any of the products mentioned here!
