French skincare haul

While I was in Paris I did what any self-respecting blogger did and hunted down the gem that is City Pharma. Cliche? As Elodie, Olivia, Gemma, Kristabel, Lucy, Lauren, Charlotte and I all headed through the mean back streets of Paris, we were ladies on a mission. My, was it worth the trek! I felt like all my Christmas' had came and once and didn't quite know where to look first. It was very busy and overwhelming.

After making a beeline and picking up enough Bioderma to see me through for at least 6 months I hounded Elodie on what other skincare beauties I should lug back to London. I was on the lookout for a clay mask as working in London seems to be playing havoc with my face. It is not my friend at the minute. After evesdropping and hearing Elodie mention the Nuxe lipbalm was a winner I sneaked it into my bag as I was queuing. I hold Olivia fully responsible for the purchase of the red Sephora lip paint. It's not really something I would ever think to look at in a shop - lipstick is the way to my heart. But I saw it on her and decided I needed to own it right that minute. Baaaa someone say sheep?!

Have you ever tried any of these products?


  1. Great haul, I love Bioderma!
