There’s nothing better than a genuine and honest review from somebody that you trust. That’s why word of mouth French Pharmacy recommendations have always been a favourite of mine. With hundreds of skin, body and makeup items in the catalogue, you sometimes need that beauty aficionado stamp of approval when dipping into this huge collection.
If, like me, you hate it when you take a chance on a product that turns out to be a disappointment, this edit is for you. Tried and tested reviews are the best! Luckily for me, I get to virtually hang out in the blogger community on a daily basis and I’ve made some close connections with some of the UK’s best-loved beauty writers. So this week, I thought that it’s only fair that I share the genuine French Pharmacy loves that have my #bblogger pals have been posting about recently.
P.s. the ‘Add to Wishlist’ button can be found underneath the size guide on every product page – in case you need that for later!
The Effortless Entrepreneur
Claudia from Beauty And The Chic
Hero Product: Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré
Claudia Says: I use the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré. I had run out of moisturiser and since I’ve always wanted to try it I decided to give it a go. Turns out it was a very good choice as it can be used for multiple things, a makeup primer, moisturiser, a mask and even baby care which therefore means it’s gentle. Anything that can be used on babies is safe for me. It’s a great product, just like the previous products, this too provides a great amount of moisture throughout the day and leaves my skin feeling soft and supply. Most importantly, it hasn’t irritated my skin.
The Perfect Pinterest Queen
Gemma from Miss Makeup Magpie
Hero Product: Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil
Gemma Says: Although the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil is super hyped, I wasn’t blown away by it especially as it’s so pricey but I personally much prefer this NUXE Shower Oil as it’s much better value and it leaves my skin softer for longer. The NUXE Prodigieux Precious Scented Shower Oil leaves my skin feeling amazingly soft, and it is incredible for shaving your legs with due to the oil as it helps the blades move smoothly over the skin. If you love the sweet floral scent of the NUXE Prodigieux Oil, you simply must try the new Shower Oil as it’s a divine addition to your body care routine…
The Grooming Guru
John from Mr Wharff
Hero Product: La Roche-Posay Serozinc
John Says: Heaven in a bottle! The La-Roche Posay Serozinc is a true skin saviour thanks to the soothing, healing ingredient Zinc Sulphate. Whenever my face erupts in blemishes or I develop an unfortunate shaving rash, I know my bottle of comforting Serozinc is able to save the day, reducing the signs of redness and irritation within seconds! Keep a bottle in the refrigerator for that extra cooling effect on the skin.
The Social Savvy Butterfly
Laura from Laurzrah
Hero Product: Vichy Quenching Mineral Mask
Laura Says: I have forever been in love with the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum, so the Vichy Quenching Mineral Masque was a very welcome addition to my skincare stash. It’s a lightweight gel that is so perfect for dehydrated skin – it’s not heavy but leaves behind such an intensive boost of hydration. I haven’t been washing it off because my skin needs all of the moisture, and it just dries down in about ten minutes on my skin and then leaves everything feeling smoother. Anyone with dehydrated skin needs this!
