French pharmacie haul

I'm a big fan of French skincare so on my recent roadtrip to France I just had to pop into a local pharmacie and stock up on a few basics:

 French pharmacie haul, Bioderma crealine H2O, Bioderma sebium H2O, Caudalie beauty elixir, French skincareI love the Bioderma crealine H20 solution for make up removal, so naturally they were the first item on my list. Whilst there I also spotted these green bottles of Bioderma sebium H20. They're targed for oily skin, something which I suffer from, so into the basket they went too.

Finally, I brought a small bottle of Caudalie beauty elixir to try out. On first impressions, it's very refreshing, I love the herbal scent, and I'm hoping the essential oils will be beneficial for my skin.

Unfortunately there weren't any big pharmacies where we were, else I'd have picked up a lot more. Hopefully next time I'll be visiting Paris and can shop to my heart's content in one of their bigger stores.

Are you a fan of French skincare? What are your favourite products?

Ps. Congrats to Ying who is the winner of my Saturday night out kit giveaway. Congrats Ying, can you please email me your address and I'll get your prizes sent out asap.

    1. Bioderma's not the easiest to get hold of in the UK, but if you can then I would definitely recommend x

  6. I'm definitely a fan of French skincare! My fave brands are Bioderma (love micellar water!), La Roche-Posay, Lierac, Galenic, Nuxe, Sanoflore, Uriage and some Vichy products. I'm lucky I can buy them almost at every chemist's.

    1. The pink Bioderma was 18, the green one a few euros cheaper and I think the Caudalie beauty elixir was around 10 x
