French Pharmacie Essentials Haul

When I went to France earlier this summer, I was so enamored with French pharmacies. The amount of skincare they have is amazing, and knowing how the French pay good money for good food I imagined the same stance with their cosmetics and skincare.

While I was there I didn't spend a lot of time in the pharmacies but I did get Embryolisse. I mean, it's touted as a makeup artist favorite and so I knew I had to have it. Needless to say, I love it and had to get a backup when my dad went to France 2 weeks ago. I also picked up Homeoplasmine, a vaseline balm similar to the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream but with extra plant essentials. I've always liked Aquaphor and Vaseline as a lip balm so I'm glad to find another kind.

I love the foil squeeze tubes. There's something so satisfying about using something with such a malleable container. As nice as it looks unused, it doesn't look as great all bent out of shape.


Still, I hope to see more brands adopting the foil tube. It's pretty satisfying to pierce the top with the cap.


And in case you were wondering, my Dad did bring home a pile of French foods :D



  1. Mai, when you can I'd love to see a review on the Embryolisse. I have it and I'm still iffy on it.

  2. I freaking LOOOOVE Embryolisse
