You may have seen my posts about my recent trip to Paris, today I’m chatting about what I bought while I was there.
Bioderma was an obvious one! After every beauty blogger and their pet raved about the stuff, I knew I wanted to pick some up. I got both of these for €17 I think and let me tell you, it definitely pays to shop around. The pharmacies near the Louvre were charging €19 a bottle. Luckily there was no way I was gonna part with that much for one and I found these in a little pharmacy just off the Champs-Élysées – which I actually thought would be a more expensive area.
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré
was another ‘must-buy’ and oh man was it worth it! I think it was around €14 and the man who served me seemed surprised I only picked up one. Looking back, I should’ve bought back ups since I can’t just pop over to Paris any time I feel like hitting up the French pharmacies!
I never got to CityPharma during our trip, which is a shame and that’s probably why I was pretty reserved with my spends. When I go back (whenever that may be) I’ll definitely get along there and pick up more bargains. By the time the next trip comes around I think I’ll be in need of more Nuxe. Honestly not sure why I didn’t get a second Rêve de Miel lip balm and pick up some Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil Spray to try out. Silly me!
Onto Sephora, well… we all knew this was going to happen. Of course I picked up two of the Cream Lip Stains didn’t I?! I actually couldn’t decide which to go for and my boyfriend bought me both 03 Strawberry Kissed and 06 Forever Fuchsia (keeper or what, ladies?) I’m sure it was some ploy to get me out of Sephora, but it worked…until the following day when I went back! I picked up a lipstick as a little gift for my Mam and the Sephora Pro Airbrush 55 which is an absolute dream to use!
I’d definitely recommend shopping around if you’re going to the pharmacies in Paris, get to CityPharma if you can as I’ve heard it’s the best and of course you have to go to Sephora!
Have you been to Paris? What did you pick up when you were there?
