A pharmacy in France is no CVS — it is more like the skincare counter at your favorite high-end department store, without the judgy sales people and panic-inducing prices. These products are highly sought-after, beauty-insider worshipped, and as easy to get your hands on as a stroll to the drugstore at the end of the block. Trust me, you’re going to want to bring an extra suitcase to buy these products in bulk.
But if you’re not going to France anytime soon, thank your lucky stars for the internet. The favorite products of Parisian It-Girls and cult products of the most stylish country in the world can be yours at the click of “add to cart.”
The Micellar Water that started it all. By now, you probably know enough about Micellar Water and its amazing effects on your skin. But don’t take it from me — the flawless faces of the French are convincing enough. And this one from La Roche-Posay is a French-favorite.
Dry shampoo is the product we owe our best hair days and longest-lasting blowouts to, but it can be insanely drying. Oat milk soothes the scalp so there’s no irritation and dandruff, and it gets the job done without drying out your hair. C’est parfait!
This multi-purpose dry oil from NUXE feels just as good as it looks. It made my skin soft, smooth, and shimmery, and it never made me break out, even when using it on my face. Though it did leave my very thin hair a little oily, I’d imagine it works great for that perfectly thick Parisian hair.
