The Best French Pharmacy Skincare Products


Scroll through beauty accounts on social media and you’re likely to notice that many of the most popular posts are focused on the subject of French style and beauty. The French seem to have a knack for formulating skincare products that work exceptionally well, and fortunately for us, we don’t have to book a transatlantic flight to acquire them. There are a few we’ve discovered at our own local pharmacies that we now wonder how we ever lived without. 

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water

Micellar water is a gentle, yet effective way to remove impurities such as dirt, oil, and makeup. Unlike other facial cleansers, it protects the skin’s natural barrier and doesn’t need to be rinsed away after use. Bioderma’s micellar water for sensitive skin is made with cucumber to soothe irritation.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Serum

This serum is formulated with a potent Vitamin C alternative that improves skin’s texture while reducing the appearance of dark spots. It’s also oil-free, 100% vegan, and now comes in sustainable packaging.

Avène Thermal Spring Water

It may seem odd to make a point of spraying water on your face as part of a beauty routine, but this product is worth every penny. It contains thermal spring water bottled directly from the source and does a fantastic job of soothing and hydrating sensitive skin when applied throughout the day.
