The French Edit

Paris, it’s the city of love. And it comes in so many forms. Love for its architecture? Love for its food? Love for its fashion? Or love for its romances, the city is known for playing cupid, bringing lovers together...

I know I love all of the above. But another of my infatuations is with its beauty products.

 We all have heard of French pharmacies that provide its women with formulation you just can’t find anywhere else in the world. Glamorous globe trotters are known to stock up on products like Avibon anti-aging cream and Bioderma Crealine H2O Cleanser so that when they get home they re-equipped with lotions that will help with a plethora of beauty ailments.

It’s not just these hard to find cosmetics that I lust over. It’s there easy to access products that I swoon over regularly. In this post I have created a French edit of the best beauty products that were dreamt up in the land of love. The products must have been injected with this feel good emotion because as soon as they make contact with my face, skin, lips or lashes they never want to part.

In this gorgeous Lanvin makeup bag, I have filled it with the best French products that you can source at your closest David Jones or Myer store!
