Favorite French Beauty Products -

  1. Esthederm Sun Protective Spray - You wont see French women at the beach without this essential! It combines cellular protection technology that prevents aging and enhances natural tanning while keeping your body, face and hair soft, silky and hydrated. Plus it smells insane.

  2. Nuxe Hair Oil - An all year round multi-purpose dry oil made up of precious plant extracts and vitamin E to nourish you from head to toe. It contains an amazing blend of oils including, borage oil, st. johns wort, sweet almond, camellia, hazelnut and macadamia nut oil for a beautiful timeless smell. A preservative free formula that French women swear by to keep skin soft and hair shiny and smooth.

  3. Biotherm Lait Corporel - This amazing body lotion instantly hydrates and transforms dry flaky skin while improving suppleness and elasticity. It has a fresh and uplifting aroma that eases the senses and leaves you looking dewy all over. Highly recommend for dry skin, one of my favorite body moisturizers.

  4. Biotherm Total Renew Cleansing Oil - Anti-pollution cleansing oil that gently lathers and foams to remove makeup and impurities from the skin. Gentle enough for daily use and has a light refreshing scent.

  5. Patyka face oil - Super clean organic and 100% natural luxury skincare line from Paris. Made for all natural beauty lovers who want the best of the best. It contains 12 essential oils and plant extracts full of antioxidants to regenerate and plump up the skin.

  6. Klorane Protective Oil Hair Spray - A multi-protecting oil that deeply nourishes and protects dry, colored hair from sun exposure, UV rays, salt, sand and chlorine with a natural waterproof formula. Contains Ylang Ylang for a soft feminine smell and hair is left feeling silky and beautiful.

  7. Boiron Homéostick lip balm - French makeup artist (who we are all obsessed with) Violete Fr, swears by this lip balm to keep her lips loved and hydrated all day long.

  8. Bioderma Micellar Removing Solution - My favorite makeup remover and toning solution. Does an amazing job to clean the skin without leaving it dry (which is super hard!). Super gentle formula made for sensitive skin. It helps to remove environmental toxins, makeup and dirt without drying. I use it day and night with a cotton pad instead of washing my face with harsh acidic tap water which dries the skin.

Other great french brands if you want to explore further are: Avene, Sisley, La Roche Posay.

European beauty standards are stricter than in America resulting in cleaner products for all over beauty (hair, skin, makeup) so if you are looking for quality products that have better ingredients than I recommended exploring these items. Let me know if you have any questions!
