The Magical Mist
We don’t mean to be biased, but Serozinc, the soothing saviour from La Roche-Posay, has to be one of our favourite French Pharmacy products ever! Famed for its toning properties, this super spritz can soothe blemishes, nappy rash and even razor burn. Its isotonic blend of zinc and sodium chloride work perfectly to instantly soothe, rediuce pore size and mattify your complexion.
The Dry Skin Dream
A must-have for those with extremely dry skin conditions, the Avene XeraCalm Balm is renowned for its intensive moisturising results. Its gentle yet productive formula can be used all over the face and body and is ideal for soothing flare ups. Enriched with Avene’s healing and hydrating Thermal Spring Water plus I-modulia®, this skin-softening cream repairs, nourishes and soothes the skin. 97% of customers report a reduction in itchiness too – result!
The Super Serum
Now, if skin regeneration is what you’re looking for, Institut Estherderm E.V.E Serum is exactly what you need! Under the radar for most but hyped by some of the beauty industry’s favourite bloggers, this 21-day programme boosts and brightens your complexion to reveal a redensified finish to your skin with luminous results. Infused with over 50 biomimetic ingredients and super-plumping hyaluronic acid, this super serum works to completely transform and re-power the tissues in your skin.
Yes it’s new, and yes we’re excited. So excited that we can’t stop shouting about it wherever and whenever we can! A new take on the association of skincare and makeup, Vichy Dermablend 3D is a high coverage foundation hero that brings the benefits of acne-fighting ingredients into your every day makeup routine. Added salicylic acid helps this foundation to diffuse the appearance of pores and oil production to keep breakouts at bay, while SPF25 provides added protection. Its amazing coverage glides effortlessly across your skin, and its flawless texture provides seriously effortless application.
The Re-balancing Remedy
Congested skin can be a real nightmare, especially when blemishes decide to show up unexpectedly. If hormonal breakouts and uneven texture tend to pay your complexion a daily, weekly or even monthly visit, the Darphin Aromatic Purifying Balm is just what your skin needs! A mini skin detox in a pot, this 100% natural origin cream works while you sleep to rid your skin of toxins and imperfections, showcasing a clearer look to your complexion by morning.
