french pharmacie haul

when i was in paris i knew i wanted to pick up a few french beauty products. after watching this video i was itching to try a few of the items. i decided on these and so far so good....

mini review:

  • bioderma crealine: this makeup remover water solution is insanely famous in the beauty world. it is considered the most effective gentle makeup remover on the market and lusted over by several celebrity makeup artists. i have been using face wipes in combination with clinique take off the day makeup remover forever and i was looking for an oil free alternative and so far this h20 non rinse solution is living up to the hype. 
  • la roche posay effaclar mat: this pore minimizing moisturizer is divine. unlike many daily moisturizers it does not leave your skin feeling greasy but rather matte and smooth. also the smell is light and flowery which makes applying it even more of a treat. 
  • caudalie beauty elixir: boy are people talking about this toner! ever since it was revealed to be one of victoria beckham's beauty secrets, responsible for giving her that effortless red carpet glow, beauty guru's cannot stop raving about it. the scent is minty and fresh and i love a few spritzes of it after i have powdered my face.
  • bioderma hydrabio legere: while using this product i felt a little guilty because i felt like i was cheating on my clinique dramatically different moisturizer. but as it turns out i am not ditching my clinique for the bioderma. actually i am not a fan of it at all really. although it is super hydrating for my dry cheeks, it leaves a sticky film on my skin. i probably will not repurchase, however if you need a super nourishing cream every so often, especially for hyper sensitive dry skin, this is a safe bet. 
au revoir mes belles xoxo
