Ever wonder how French women always have amazing, flawless skin? My recent trip to the beauty counters and pharmacies in Paris has showed me their secret! Introducing the French beauty brands you need to invest in.
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, AED 218
French women don’t have time to waste, they want results and fast – and this is how they get them. A pea size amount of Clarins Beauty Flash Balm will give you fresher, moisturised, younger, tighter looking skin in seconds. It’s Clarins’ most popular radiance booster – with one being sold every 20 minutes worldwide!
Avene Couvrance Compact Foundation SPF35, AED 235, Bin Sina Pharmacy
If you have sensitive skin – this is a must! It’s a no-fuss full-coverage foundation that covers and camouflages imperfections whilst the silky smooth texture applies like second skin that stands against smudging and sweat. The oil-free formula minimises breakouts as well as protecting skin from harmful rays with its SPF35! Perfect for this Dubai mamas.
L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream, AED 139 for 150ml
French women know how to age gracefully – they also know that one of the first few signs of ageing can be seen with pigmentation, loss of elasticity and wrinkling of hands. Invest in L’Occitane’s best-seller Shea Butter Hand Cream. Made with 20% Shea Butter, honey, sweet almond extract and a slight scent of jasmine, a generous layer of this nourishing hand balm is a must. If you’re looking for that bit extra – apply a thick coat of cream and place your hands in gloves for about an hour for mega moisture.
Bioderma Sensibio H20 (100ml), AED 35, Life Pharmacy
A fabulous French juxtaposition – this product is gentle on the most sensitive on skins but extremely powerful and efficient as a make-up remover. It cleanses in just one swift wipe, leaving no traces of dirt or make-up. Perfect for busy mums!
Caudalie Beauty Elixir, AED 80 for 35ml, Bin Sina Pharmacy
Are you a glow-getter? If so – this purse friendly 30ml beauty mist a must-have! Drop it in your bag and when you need some instant refreshment, spritz on to skin to load it with a blend of essential oils and plant active ingredients. It smoothes, tightens pores and instantly freshens your face, fast.
