As you may know, I'm in Paris at the moment (seeing the family etc) and everyone loves a good french pharmacy so I've done a little bit of shopping. Not a lot - I've kind of been looking around at the best deals in different places because my mom stops me from impulse buying. Anyway, these are a few things that I've picked up.
Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm
This is my favourite lip balm of all time, it's really thick and moisturising which is great for really dry lips like mine. It stays on for hours and when I put it on before bed it's still on when I wake up. Yes, I did buy five but they are a little bit cheaper in France than they are in the UK so it makes sense.
Caudalie Vinosource SOS Serum
Again, this buy was influenced by Estée from EssieButton because I think she has a similar skin type to me and she has raved about this product many times. I don't currently use a serum very often so I thought it was something that was missing from my skincare routine. This is supposed to be really good for putting on before moisturising, if you have dry skin.
Because I bought the SOS Serum, I also got given a free, pink makeup bag and a load of Caudalie samples to try out. Included were:
Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Cream SPF 15
Vinosource Moisture Recovery Cream x 2
Vinexpert Night Infusion Cream
Vinosouce Moisturizing Matifying Fluid
Vinosource SOS Serum
Premier Cru The Cream x 2
Melvita Camomile Floral Water
There are different versions of this for different skin types, obviously I got the one for dry skin. I'm trying to replace my Caudalie Beauty Elixir because that has a load of alcohol in it which I think is probably not great for my skin. You can use this as a toner, but I just pat it into my skin after I've done my makeup.
YSL False Lash Effect Mascara
This is one of my favourite mascaras along with Armani Eyes To Kill - I won't need to open this for a little while because I have other mascaras I need to use up first. Actually one of the ones I need to use up is a YSL False Lash Effect that I've had for a few months now, which shows that it's an old favourite of mine that I always go back to.
