Haul Week: French Pharmacy Purchases

I went to Nice on my honeymoon last month so it was inevitable that I'd end up looking in a few pharmacies while I was there. I tried not to go too wild and just picked up things that I would definitely use and didn't just buy things for the sake of it because they were cheaper than the UK!

It's been about 3 years since I tried the original Bioderma but I've stuck to using various drugstore Micellar waters ever since so I decided to buy the Bioderma Hydrabio Micelle Solution as it's for dehydrated skin and thought it would be interesting to see if I like it better than my current Garnier one. I knew my Vichy toner was starting to run low so I picked up the Hydrabio Moisturising Toning Lotion to try next. I like a nice, simple toner for days when I'm not using an acid based toner.

I mentioned my love for a Caudalie serum in a recent post so when I saw a night-time oil in the Caudalie section, I really fancied trying it. It's the Overnight Recovery Oil for dry skin and it sounds like a nice way to add some hydration to my skin over the winter.

I love a good cleansing balm and the Nuxe Melting Cleansing Gel sounded like that kind of thing for a very reasonable price so I bought that to try out. It's an added bonus that it's made from rose petals!

Finally, an old school favourite. A few years ago the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm was my favourite lip balm for healing sore, chapped lips. More recently, I'm obsessed with the By Terry Baume de Rose and I totally notice a difference when I don't use it, but for old times' sake, I thought I'd pick up another Reve de Miel as I think it will be good to alternate with the By Terry.

Do you use any French Pharmacy brands in your skincare regime?
