Discover What's New In French Pharmacy: Decleor Rosemary Officinalis White Clay Daily Care, La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum, Payot Uni Skin Masque Magnetique

It’s a new year and with that comes a fresh new start. While our skin definitely felt the love in 2020 as many of us used lockdown to get our glow back, 2021 promises to be even kinder to your skin with a flurry of new releases on the horizon (it’s time to get excited!).

Like most, you may have you’ve recently cleaned out your skincare and beauty stash to see in the new year, and you’re probably ready to inject some newness into your everyday routine; what better way to do this than a new release from the French Pharmacy category? All of which combine efficacy, innovative technology and value for money.

Here are my top picks to add to your basket in 2021 from the new French Pharmacy launches…


The Healing Icon Reimagined

Discover What's New In French Pharmacy: Eucerin Aquaphor Body Ointment Spray

What is Eucerin Aquaphor Body Spray?
A new handy spray version of the original multi-use barrier cream Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm.

What’s so good about it?
The original Aquaphor ointment has taken up residency French Pharmacy hall of fame for many a year, and I’ve often wondered why it has always been a stand-alone product, instead of a range. Its ability to moisturise intensively, repair, soothe and form a protective barrier, and add a glowy sheen to the skin makes it a staple product to own. Still, it’s balmy texture means that it isn’t always an easy product to work with. Enter Aquaphor in an easy-to-use aerosol spray; this new addition is perfect for covering larger areas easily or hard-to-reach areas of skin in a hurry, providing a quick and fuss-free way to apply your beloved Aquaphor ointment; I, for one, am hooked!

The ‘Wake Up With Brighter Skin’ Night Cream

Discover What's New In French Pharmacy: Bioderma Pigmentbio Night Renewer

What is Bioderma Pigmentbio Night Renewer?
A lightweight cream-gel night cream that will help prevent and reduce hyperpigmentation while boosting cell renewal will encourage your skin to have a gorgeous glow every morning with continued use.

What’s so good about it?
Bioderma replaced their popular White Objective range in 2020 with a new and improved range, Pigmentbio. The lightweight night cream is a new addition to the range (White Objective did not have a dedicated night cream) that not only tackles dark spots, acne scarring and pigmentation but also has an anti-ageing effect on the skin thanks to the ingredient, hexapeptide-2, which helps to improve collagen production. It gives the same skin-replenishing results as a rich cream and if you use it with the Bioderma Pigmentbio C-Concentrate, it’s a winning combination for glowing skin!

The Anti-Blemish Night Serum

Discover What's New In French Pharmacy: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum

What is La Roche-Posay Effaclar Ultra Concentrated Serum?
A night serum specially formulated for skin prone to spots, breakouts and blackheads. Its exfoliating and clarifying formula is perfect for those who suffer from adult acne or the effects of maskne.

What’s so good about it?
La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar range has long been a go-to for oily and blemish-prone skin and is one of their best-selling ranges. This latest addition to the Effaclar lineup has a lightweight gel texture. It contains a cocktail of active ingredients (salicylic acid, glycolic acid and niacinamide) to help smooth and clarify the complexion without being harsh on the skin. Specially formulated for adult-acne and with mask-wearing not disappearing any time soon, I think this is a great serum for anyone to have in their skincare arsenal.

The Soothing Hand Cream

Discover What's New In French Pharmacy: Avene Cicalfate Restorative Hand Cream

What is Avene Cicalfate Restorative Hand Cream?
An intensive hand cream for dry and cracked hands in need of some extra TLC.

What’s so good about it?
Suppose you’re familiar with the original Cicalfate cream you’ll know it’s a barrier cream that helps to heal and soothe dry, broken and irritated skin, but the thick and rich consistency of it doesn’t make it ideal to be used on the hands. The Cicalfate hand cream harnesses all the original cream’s healing powers but has a lightweight texture that absorbs quickly and easily, making it perfect for dry, chapped and over-washed hands (and let’s face it, that’s most of us at the moment!).

The Moisturiser That Makes Skin Glow

Even oily skin types need hydration, but the task of finding a moisturiser that doesn’t wreak havoc on your skin can be a difficult one; that’s where Decleor comes in. Their Rosemary Officinalis range uses the antibacterial abilities of rosemary essential oil to purify and detoxify breakout-prone deeply, and oily skin and this daily moisturiser provide just the right amount of hydration to keep skin balanced and healthy. White clay absorbs excess sebum and tightens pores while salicylic acid calms redness and encourages cell renewal. When I use this under my makeup, my face doesn’t get as shiny throughout the day, and there was no need to touch-up at midday!

The Magnetic Face Mask

Discover What's New In French Pharmacy: Payot Uni Skin Masque Magnetique - Magnet Perfector Care & Magnet

What is Payot Uni Skin Masque Magnetique?
A new way of masking! The Payot magnetic mask not only helps to draw out impurities and give your complexion a hydrated, healthy glow, it does so in a truly innovative way that also makes it a lot of fun to use – something we all need right now!

What’s so good about it?
At first, you’d be fooled into thinking this is just like any other face mask, but it isn’t. After five minutes (another bonus, this mask works quickly!) to remove the mask, instead of washing and scrubbing your skin at a sink, you wrap the magnet (included) in tissue then hover it over the complexion. Magically the mask is lifted off the face and onto the tissue. Not only is the whole process incredibly satisfying (and mesmerising!), the skin is left with a radiant glow. This is thanks to the magnetite-rich formula that helps to absorb dirt and pollution particles while boosting the skin’s microcirculation. It’s a yes from me!
