Whenever I'm in Paris, I find myself drawn to pharmacies like a moth to a flame. All those perfectly stacked shelves filled with lotions and potions that sound so effective and life-changing when pronounced in a French accent. I've also found some of the my absolute best, inexpensive, can't-live-without beauty products here. Don't live in France? Get yours here.
Biafine Everyone should have this in their drawer! A life-saver for sunburn, dry skin, burns, bumps and scratches (as you can see, I've used mine alot).
Klorane Dry Shampoo Fabulous for in-between washes or if you want to maintain a blowdry (PS. I spotted this one at Priceline last week. Get in!).
Dexeryl Amazingly effective on dry, winter-ravaged skin.
Avibon Packed with Vitamin A, this wonder cream is recommended to aid scarring, but I find it to be a cracking night time eye cream or a fabulous skin-reviving face mask. (You will struggle to find this one online sadly, so put it on your list for future trips or have a Euro-based friend pick it up for you.)
Avène Cold Cream Lip Balm I was an avid paw paw ointment user until I picked up this one on a whim at the Pharmacie counter. Amaze.
