French Pharmacy Finds

One of the things I am still kicking myself over is not taking any time to explore a few French pharmacies while Shug and I were in Paris.  Yes, yes, we spent our days filled to the brim with fun and red wine, but I love exploring drug stores in different countries to see what beauty products they have to offer!

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.

Finally, a light moisturizer I found for daytime is 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?

  1. Not French, but I've got some Bourjois foundation coming to me via the UK ASOS site! I'm totally stoked.


Thank you so much for checking out Goldteef! I'd love to hear what you think!
