There’s only one thing we love more than French Pharmacy at Escentual, and that’s new launches. So, we’re celebrating 1/3 off some of your favourite French skincare brands by sharing all of the best new releases. Whether you’re a returning fan or new to the category and looking for shopping inspiration, here’s what we recommend you add to your bag…
1. Bioderma Pigmentbio Daily Care SPF50+
SPF is crucial in preventing hyperpigmentation, but what if you already have it? Two words: Bioderma Pigmentbio; this innovative SPF for the face not only prevents dark spots from appearing, but it’s packed full of active ingredients that correct existing pigmentation. The face cream also contains vitamin E and C, a powerful antioxidant duo that protects the skin from UV rays and oxidative stress that can lead to premature ageing.
2. La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum
We’ve been waiting for this! The award-winning Effaclar range now has a serum, and it’s perfect for getting rid of maskne. Enriched with salicylic acid, LHA, and glycolic acid, the Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum targets breakouts, blackheads and unclogs pores – all while you sleep.
3. Eucerin DermatoClean Hyaluron Micellar Foam
Forget what you’ve heard about foam cleansers; the Dermatoclean Hyaluron Micellar Foam will leave your complexion feeling soft, hydrated and comfortable thanks to a pH level that’s the same as tears – so it’s extra gentle around the eyes too. Waterproof makeup and SPF won’t stand a chance against Eucerin’s extra mild cleansing complex, which removes all traces of dirt without any rubbing or irritation.
4. Vichy Ultra-Nourishing Hand Cream
If repeated hand washing has left your hands dry, cracked and chapped, Vichy’s Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream is the easiest order you’ll make this French Pharmacy. Specifically made for dry and sensitive hands, the moisturising balm contains anti-inflammatory rose extract and moisturising shea butter; a duo that’ll relieve and comfort in an instant.
5. Eucerin Sun Oil Control Gel-Cream SPF50+
Sun protection, shine control, and a light non-greasy texture – a dream SPF for oily and acne-prone skin. Made with broad-spectrum and photostable UVA filters, the Sun Oil Control Gel-Cream SPF50+ pairs very high sun protection with sebum-regulating L-Carnitine to keep skin matte for up to eight hours.
