French Pharmacy Blogger Favourites

There’s no better way to discover a new skincare hero than with a good old fashioned recommendation, especially when the recommender knows their stuff! So, with that in mind, we asked some of the UK’s leading beauty bloggers to reveal their must-have French Pharmacy skincare, so that we can copy of course!

Curious? We thought you might be! From blemish-busting sprays to ultra-intelligent SPFs, here are their tried and tested skincare must-haves that you need to know about…



Avene Tolerance Extreme Cream Jane Cunningham - British Beauty Blogger
French Pharmacy Favourite: Avene Tolerance Extreme Cream

Jane says: “I’ve been to the Avene Hydrotherapy Centre in France so have seen – and experienced – first hand just how effective this range really is and an absolute saviour for anyone with reactive skin. I mix up a custom blend BB coverage for my daughter who has very sensitive skin using Avene Tolerance Extreme Cream as a base and it works so well.”



La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra-light SPF50+ Very High Protection Ree Lodge - Really Ree
French Pharmacy Favourite: La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF50

Ree says: “As I have pale skin that’s prone to freckles and pigmentation, I can’t live without SPF in my life, and this one is the dream. It offers extremely high protection in a super lightweight formula that is both comfortable and hydrating at the same time. Makeup sits very well on top of it and I never burn or freckle up when I keep it topped up. There’s also a tinted version if you want something a little skin perfecting for beach days.”



Vichy Idealia Peeling Radiance Activating Night Peeling CareZoe Newlove
French Pharmacy Favourite: Vichy Idealia Peeling – Night Peeling Care

Zoe says: “I first came across Vichy Idealia Night Peeling when a friend recommended it to me, and I am now on my third bottle. I love skincare with glycolic acid in as I am determined to keep my skin looking as fresh and young as possible for as long as I can. I work very long hours and I am always on the go, so the first place tiredness shows is in my skin. When I want it to look radiant again I use this in my routine. I swear by this now and it really does make my skin look healthy and glowing again.”



Nuxe Reve de Miel Honey Ultra-Nourishing Lip BalmLaura Franklin-Hollier - Laurzrah
French Pharmacy Favourite: Nuxe Reve de Miel Honey Lip Balm

Laura Says: “I absolutely adore the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm and have gone through quite a few pots since I discovered it. It smells like orange and honey and leaves lip perfectly soft without too much slip which makes it the perfect base for my favourite matte lipsticks. It also works beautifully as an overnight treatment to soothe lips as you snooze.”



La Roche-Posay Serozinc

Laura Murray - Lelore
French Pharmacy Favourite: La Roche-Posay Serozinc Spray

Laura says: “La Roche-Posay Serozinc is the ultimate bad skin saviour. Not only does it refresh the complexion, but it also helps reduce the appearance of pores. It’s perfect for helping heal blemishes and I know I can always rely on it to soothe irritation.”



Avene Eau Thermale Thermal Spring Water Spray
Lex Gilles - Talonted Lex
French Pharmacy Favourite: Avéne Eau Thermale Water Spray

Lex Says: “My absolute holy grail French pharmacy product has to be the Avéne Eau Thermale Spring Water Spray. I have rosacea and find that Avéne makes some wonderfully gentle and effective products that really work for sensitive/reactive skin. But this spray is something I’ve used for such a long time as it helps to soothe and calm my skin, especially when I’m having a flare up. I have the full-size can on my dressing table and the mini in my handbag at all times because I just can’t be without it!”
