I don’t know about you but I’m really enjoying UEFA Euro 2016. I couldn’t help but be influenced by the host country France with my latest French pharmacy beauty purchases. I might be stating the obvious but I need little encouragement to engage in a beauty haul.
Here are my latest purchases…
Serum Merveillance Visible Expression Lines Serum 30ml, Nuxe Paris at Amazon, £47.24
I originally bought this from Escentual many years ago and I was very impressed with it. So much so, that I was devastated to discover it’s no longer sold at most online beauty retailers (seriously, what’s up with companies discontinuing amazing products?!). Fortunately, I’ve been able to find it on Amazon.
Anyway, back to the product. I’m a huge fan of Nuxe and this anti-wrinkle serum makes me love them even more. It’s two products in one (yay!) because it can be used on my face and eye area.
It claims to reduce visible expression lines and smooth skin, which is exactly what this lovely little serum does. My skin feels refreshed and lifted whenever I use it. It really does get to work straight away!
I adorable pump dispenser ensures no product is wasted. That in itself would be a cardinal sin…
Thermal Water, Eau Thermale Avene at Boots, £10
This water spray is a staple in my beauty cabinet. I’m not even joking.
Made with Eau Thermale Avene’s famous spring water, it soothes everything from allergic skin to sunburn. Pesky mosquito bites too. It’s so easy to use. I spray it onto my skin and within a matter of seconds it nourishes my skin.
When the weather is really hot (I’m looking at you Croatia!), I love keeping this in the fridge for a chilled boost.
Normaderm Anti-Age Anti-Imperfection Anti-Wrinkle Resurfacing Care, Vichy at Feel Unique, £15.50
It’s so difficult finding a cream that does everything isn’t it? This beauty (pardon the pun) tackles imperfections including uneven skin and visible pores. It smooths skin and also has anti-wrinkle properties. It’s never too late to start thinking about that, you know.
This light green cream (don’t worry, it blends it amazingly well!) contains lipo-hydroxy acid (LHA), glycolic acid as well as glucosylated vitamin C to gently exfoliate and boost skin renewal. It’s super moisturising, which makes it ideal for dehydrated skin and it’s non-comedogenic so it won’t block pores.
It’s suitable for morning and/or evening use and because it’s made with Vichy’s thermal spring water it won’t irritate skin.
