With up to 1/3rd off selected French Pharmacy brands the skincare treat you need is just a click away. But if the last couple of days are still catching up with you don’t worry, I’ve collated all the must-have French Pharmacy products everyone’s talking about, meaning you can fit in a quick French Pharmacy fix before a much needed snooze!

Vichy Purete Thermale Purifying Cleansing Micellar Oil
Vichy Purete Thermale Micellar Oil

I had to pop this little gem in as it definitely is at the top of my personal what’s hot list. Lightweight and non-greasy, the Vichy Purete Thermale Micellar Oil makes my entire makeup removal routine quick and easy. As well as removing all traces of makeup (even full-face festive warpaint), the oil removes impurities, excess sebum and dead cells without irritation or rubbing. And another reason it’s such a big hitter is the protection it provides against free radicals, making it much more impressive than just any old makeup remover.

The latest release from luxury skincare brand Darphin, the oil-cream hybrid is a daily moisturiser that aims to smooth, firm and improve the elasticity of your skin. Truly luxurious, each jar contain the equivalent of 280 flower petals, and once created the formula is left in the jar for 168 hours to reach its optimum efficiency. Nothing about this whipped formula is ordinary and it’s just the thing if you want to start 2016 off with a bang.

An oldie but a goodie, Bioderma Sensibio H20 will be on my French Pharmacy shopping list time and time again. An easy go-to for removing makeup and refreshing the skin, it’s a product that you can always do with a secret stash of. After celebrating its 20th birthday back in September, the H20 Micellar Water is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. So, if you’re still yet to try it, now is your chance!

    I would like to know more about the shades of the BB blur. Do the shades run darker than expected or not?? I bought once a bb cream in light that was too dark.

      Hi there Jessica,

      Each BB Blur shade runs a little dark straight from the tube, but we’ve had customer feedback that once blended into the skin the shades are a very good match. The colour adaptive pigments give a little shade flexibility! We’ve just posted a review here if you’d like a closer look: http://www.escentual.com/blog/2016/01/05/why-you-need-effaclar-bb-blur/
