If all goes as planned, we’ll be spending a few days in Paris at the end of next month. 🤞 One stop I ALWAYS make is City Pharma in the 6th arrondissement. They stock an amazing selection of beauty products and the Sales Associates are very knowledgable and helpful. Not to mention, they often have the best prices in town. (Above: waiting for the store to open. I always try to get there early, as it can get VERY crowded later in the day.)
French drugstore skincare favorites
There are a few items I usually stock up on, but as it’s been over two years since our last visit, I’ve had to hunt down some sources of my favorite French drugstore beauty products online. I thought I’d share my top 6 with you.
This 3-in-1 “cleansing milk” is very soothing and gentle, but cleans effectively. I use this when my skin is feeling particularly dry and sensitive.
This is one of those products that makeup artists seem to swear by. When the air is dry, I’ll sometimes use Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré as a primer before applying foundation. Even more often, I’ll pat on later in the day over makeup to restore a dewy finish.
I usually try to save room in my travel “liquids” bag for a small size of this facial mist. It’s great to combat dry cabin air, and also can be used to set makeup. Unlike some facial mists, it doesn’t have a noticeable fragrance.
