French Pharmacy Finds
Luckily, Amazon is making the world smaller in a much better way! I have a few staples I use religiously now that come straight from the aisles of a French pharmacy. The first find is the amazingly moisturizing Ducray Ictayne Creme. It is non-comedogenic and sooooo nice for parched winter skin. I usually slather this on at night over a serum to wake up to soft and super-moisturized skin.
Avibon is a thick and tacky gel that is rich in vitamin A. I use this alone at night and after about a month saw some reduction in fine lines and discoloration. It is THICK and produces a great barrier to moisture loss. This is also a great winter cream, but I use it year-round.
Embryolisse Hydrating Creme with Orange Extract. It is just the right amount of moisture for under makeup and leaves your skin with a slightly dewy finish. While it doesn't have SPF it doesn't break me out and my skin loves it!
I have other beauty finds from around the globe I'll talk about it a different post. Do you have anything in your beauty arsenal that comes from across the pond?
