Let's face it, the French know how to take care of themselves. Be it their chic attitude that comes from much pampering and equal amounts of just being born with it to their care of all things that come in contact with their body, they are known for the incredible things they come up with to give themselves a little treat.
That's also how things are with cosmetics, because they are the leaders when it comes to dermocosmetics, concocted from the best ingredients to get the best out of your skin.
My mother has always been a huge fan of them, I was just a glorious ignorant for most of my life, but I now have a couple of things that I cannot do without and that have improved my skin's well-being completely. And guess what? They're french.
I'd dare assume the Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water is the most famous of the bunch.Just the other day I was giggling about how pretty much every beauty blogger knows about this one. If you're not a beauty blogger and don't know about or haven't tried it yet, I suggest you do because it's one of the most delicate things to touch my face. I use it mostly as a post-makeup remover cleanser. I like it best that way and my super sensitive eyes have never had a complaint.
Of all, I think Vichy is the one I'm the biggest fan of. I haven't found anything from them that I tried and did not like. Same goes for the Vichy Pureté Thermale Soothing Eye Make Up Remover. ( You can read my review by clicking on the link). It is the most effective makeup remover I have ever tried and I use waterproof fiber mascara and eyeliner. Let me just tell you, no rubbing ever occurs and everything just disappears in one wipe.
The helper in need this summer has been the Avene Thermal Water Facial Spray. To have that on scorching hot summer days has been life saving and even now it does a great deal of good whenever I spray it on. Sure, there's not that much use for it in winter as you get all your freshness by just stepping outside, but I'm sure that once the heat hits, we'll be inseparable again.
And last but not least, my most recent discovery, Melvita Orange Blossom Extraordinary Water. This is a serum for dry and dehydrated skin which is pretty much pure perfection for my thirsty skin. I've been looking for a good serum for a while and when I saw this in my local pharmacy after hearing the praise it got from the equally dehydrated Estée ( that might have sounded wrong, but we be speakin the skin truth here) I grabbed it and couldn't wait to try it.
I am so glad I did! My skin feels so different and the dry patches that had started appearing were just gone never to be seen again. It's an incredible thing to try. I'm also trying out a hydrating gel from them and will tell you about it soon also because it's looking like they do many great things.
Have you tried any french pharma goodies? What do you think of them?
