Ooh La La: French Pharmacy Haul



Bonjour, mes amis! When my parents went on a recent trip to Pariee I couldn't help but send my lovely mum off with a list of le French Pharmacy goodies… and zut alors, it's love!

First up is cult blogger bezzie, Bioderma, the miscelle solution that's got everyone talking. It's lovely and gentle and does a really good job at lifting all of the makeup off your face, despite looking and feeling just like water.

Next is La Roche-Posay's Serozinc which has received some killer reviews in the blogosphere, so I had to try it. It's a great option for toning as it soothes and clarifies without irritating my skin at all. Plus the ingredients are very simple and sparing so it's not full of surplus nasties that just aren't needed!

My third product was recommended by Amelia Liana in her French Pharmacy Haul and as a dry-skinned gal, I've been lusting after it ever since. The Bioderma Hydrabio Riche is a rich (but surprisingly light-weight) moisturiser. I'd recommend it for use in the pm rather than the mornings. It sinks in, goes to town on rebooting and hydrating tired skin, and BAM you wake up feeling like a new woman. I'm a fan.

The last is another Amelia-enabled purchase as she swears by the Dermophil lip balms to keep chapped pouts at bay. I have the coconut flavoured one (which truth be told, I'm not ultra keen on) but in terms of hydrating your pout and tackling chapped lips this could be a rival for the Nuxe Reve de Miel. The formula is almost as good and the handy twist-stick packaging is a big plus as lord knows I am not a fan of poking my digits in pots of lip balm.

Now, I've only been the proud owner of said products for just over a week so I can't really give an informed review just yet, but expect to see my faves popping up in skincare routines soon or if their super spesh, they might even get their own post!

What's your fave French Pharmacy products or what are you aching to try?

Love Elle xo
