A few times a year one of my favourite skincare shops offers incredible discounts on cult French pharmacy must-haves. You can save on the products that French girls swear by that give them that ooh-la-la factor (lets face it, we would all love to be an effortlessly which Parisienne). July is one of those lucky months where Escentual offers up to 1/3 off French Pharmacy brands. Hurry though, it ends July 31st. Here are my top picks from the offer:
This moisturiser has cult status in the beauty world, and it is one I have repurchased time and time again. Effacer Duo (+) is so lightweight it is the perfect moisturiser when I have a photoshoot or fashion show. It disappears without a trace so my makeup doesn't slide off halfway through the job.
This melt-in formula is clinically proven to … wait for it … control shine, unclog blocked pores, correct the appearance of blemishes and refining the skin’s texture.
This is another product that I constantly find in makeup artists kits on photoshoots. This is always on hand for irritated skin to restore the comfort, a multipurpose moisturising cream rich in natural active ingredients. One time on a photoshoot the skin on my face was quite irritated so the makeup artist left this on as mask for 15 minutes before she started doing my makeup.
The deeply moisturising formula can be used on the face and the body. It provides comfort, soothing repair and lasting moisture to ensure better elasticity and suppleness. Created with a rich infusion of shea butter, beeswax, soy and aloe vera, skin is smoothed, plumped and incredibly soft.
Another cult classic on photoshoots used to treat the lips while the makeup artist does the rest of the face – it's so cult that apparently one Reve de Miel balm is sold across the world every 28 seconds.
Soothe your chapped lips with the Nuxe Reve de Miel Honey Lip Balm, a delicious, whipped lip formula. The concentration of natural ingredients includes repairing honey, ultra soothing plant oils, nourishing shea butter and soothing grapefruit essence, which also provides the balm’s luscious scent. With its exquisite texture and non-greasy feel, the Reve de Miel balm is a pleasure to use. Free from preservatives, mineral oils and artificial fragrance.
I much prefer serums to using a single moisturiser in the evening. This hydrating oil-serum has worked it's way into my nightly routine with it's unique blend of essential oils. An award-winning super serum that hydrates all skin types with an uplifting scent and soft silky texture.
Used widely by professionals in treatments, it feels and smells like a spa treatment it home. The 100% naturally derived Decleor Oil Serum helps treats skin exposed to daily stress and provides comfort, radiance and luminosity for flawless-looking skin. Free from preservatives, mineral oils and colourants.
