Primp Like a Parisian | French Pharmacy Must Haves

If you are a skincare fan like moi then a French pharmacy is your happy place.I remember when I visited Paris and I didn’t care at all about the clothing and makeup stores,I wanted to visit a French pharmacy and the experience was unique.So many brands, minimal aesthetic and great quality options,I was mesmerized.Skincare is very important for me and I am always inspired by French women who take care of their skin in a minimal but effective way.My favorite brands are of course La Roche Posay-I was lucky enough to be the Greek ambassador for 2015-2016 which gave me the chance to try almost all the products for my skin type – Bioderma ,Caudalie,Avene,Nuxe and many more.As these brands offer plenty of products I gathered my must haves that I always have in my collection and it’s actually my morning and night skincare routine.


First of all my Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellaire water that I can’t live without.It removes my eye makeup and cleanses my sensitive face perfectly.There are so many micellaire waters in the market but nothing is as good as the Bioderma Sensibio.Then I use the La Roche Posay Serozinc which calms my face a lot and preps it for the next steps.Serozinc is a very effective soothing spray that’s perfect for sensitive skintypes and works great as a mist before your moisturiser.If I won’t wear makeup Caudalie Beauty Elixir is my next step , I use it as a lotion as it hydrates my skin and adds a healthy glow.I use it also at night and as a glowy spray over my makeup.Then I use my Avene Hydrance serum that hydrates my face but it’s not heavy at all.It’s my night time serum too as I don’t like heavy creams and this is so light and effective.If I am going to wear makeup I use Embryolisse Lait Crème Concenté as my moisturiser and primer and it’s perfect for that.It’s a little bit heavy so I don’t apply it at night.As a primer it creates a smooth canvas and my foundation glides over like a dream.Of course I take care of my lips with the best Nuxe Reve de Miel ,I use it before lipstick or on its own day and night and my lips are super smooth and hydrated.One of my favorite hand creams is again by Nuxe the Reve de Miel one,amazing formula which is perfect for my dry hands and nails and it’s one of my bag’s staples.The last must have product for my facial beauty routine is my SPF and nothing compares to the La Roche Posay’s Anthelios Spray with SPF 50 – it’s a unique product that you can apply before and after your makeup, it’s transparent so it won’t affect your base and it’s so lightweight that you can’t feel it on your face.Last but not least the one and only product for my body care the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse ,an oil that you can use on your body, face and hair, it smells divine and it leaves my skin super soft .The scent lasts for ours, it gives a soft glow and I apply it after my shower while my skin is still wet -that’s my tip for body oils because they absorbed better this way.

I am a huge fan of French beauty and I am always trying to discover new products for my routine .I can’t wait to visit a French Pharmacy again so I need your skincare suggestions, which product is your must have?

Love Lou!
