If you’re like us, then whenever you travel to a new city (especially in Europe), it’s mandatory to visit a drugstore or pharmacy as soon as possible upon landing. There’s something about perusing the aisles in foreign countries and seeing what the beauty products are like there. The beauty world is, with good reason, obsessed with the pharmacies in Paris because, the French seem to just understand skincare and beauty in a way the North American world doesn’t. Now if you’re searching for a few French pharmacy beauty essentials, you no longer have to travel to France if you don’t want to as everything is available on trusty Amazon.
Here are 11 French pharmacy products to add to your Amazon cart!
If it’s a nourishing yet light moisturizer you’re after, then you’ll want to have this Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre in your repertoire. Not only is it super hydrating for the skin but it can also be used as a primer and make up remover.
We’ve all experienced those moments where we’re feeling far too lazy to get up and take off our make up before bed. If this sounds like you, then it’s time to reach for Bioderma’s Misceller Cleansing Water. This magic make up remover is soothing and removes all traces of your foundation, eye make up, and even lipsticks. Plus, it doesn’t even need to be rinsed off!
Say farewell to ugly hand soap bottles and hello to this ultra chic French-girl fave. This hand soap by Compagnie de Provence not only smells amazing, but it’s also formulated with coconut oil!
Being that we sweat more in the summer heat (it’s natural, guys!), it only makes sense that we shower more. Many shower gels can be so drying so a shower gel that restores the skins lipids and is more gentle is necessary. This Bioderma shower gel is just that!
We all know how important wearing sunscreen is everyday, right? The La Roche-Posay Anthelios Sunscreen is perfect for anyone with blemish-prone skin as it’s oil-free and antioxidants.
If your skin needs a bit of oomph when you’re heading out for the night, a trusty body oil with a hint of glimmer is your secret weapon. The Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or gives off a gold shimmer that’ll illuminate your skin, but you can also apply it to hair and your face, too.
Let’s be real — dry shampoo really is a girls best friend. But what do you do when you have a sensitive scalp. This Klorane Dry Shampoo is extra gentle and is formulated with oat milk for a soothing alternative that’ll still extend the life of your bouncy blowout.
Who doesn’t love a face mist? This cult favourite toning mist by Caudalie provides instant radiance and freshens up any make up look for when touch ups aren’t available. Available in a variety of sizes, it’s perfect for travel and on the go!
Avene Eau Thermale, $26
If your skin needs a little TLC but you’re not wanting to slather on creams and serums, it might be time for a spray of Avene’s Thermal Spring Water. This soothing spring water will give your complexion the drink of water it’s desperately needing.
If your hair is feeling the effects of summer in a not-so-good way, Klorane’s shampoo made with desert dates might be what you need. Desert dates are rich in fatty proteins that will help nourish and repair your tired locks.
Picking up a new body wash may not be the most chic errand you ever ran but make it a French body wash with a french vanilla scent, and we’re sold! This body wash by Le Petit Marseillais is the upgrade your shower routine is looking for.
