The French have amazing skin due to the hard working French brands they have access to. I have been researching a few brands for you to take note of.Some of these brands can be bought in the bigger pharmacies, some in department stores and online. It will vary from country to country what you can buy. That’s why I have included more well known brands such as Clarins and Vichy which will be easier to obtain worldwide.
Founded 1989. They have a iconic product called Huille Prodiguese Multi Usage Dry Oil £30. Jennifer Aniston is a fan of this range.
Founded in the 1970s, it is famous for its Micellar water,which was launched in the 90s.
La Roche Posay
Launched in the seventies specialist in gentle products used by Dermatologists,tested on sensitive skin.They are non- comedogenic which wont clog pores. I have the Anthelios sunscreen which is great in the summer and works well. And the spring water spray which cools me down in the hot weather. Like the affordability of this brand too.
Founded in 1995 the inspiration comes from grapes that contain anti oxidants. There is a big fan base of Rosie Huntington -Whitely, Holly Willoughby and Victoria Beckham. I am considering of trying something in this brand in the future.
Founded 1931, by Prosper Haller from the Volcanic region of Auvergne,using mineral water from the springs. Dermatologists also work with Vichy to produce products for sensitive skin.
Named after the region in France in which it was founded. It also uses Thermal Spring water in its ingredients. Founded 1990.
Founded in 1950 in the Parisian hospitals. They used the cream to hydrate and care for patients skin. Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan of this brand.
Founded in 1962 by a French pharmacy for those with sensitive skin.
Finally my favourite a little more expensive, but not as expensive as other high end brands. I have been using this brand since 1990s whenever I can afford it and the results on my sensitive combination skin have been impressive and I have had compliments.
Founded in 1954 by Jacques Courtins a medical student. Who based his body and face treatments on plants. I found the skincare range caters widely, its heritage is skincare. The make up is amazing and doesn’t get the publicity it deserves. Most make up brands brings me out in allergies and sensitivities. This brand as never failed me. And I stopped burning when abroad using there sunscreens. I have mentioned products in this brand in other blogs, so I will leave it there.
Also before I forget do look up Caroline Hirons she has a blog. A facialist I met last year at a Clarins launch. She knows everything all the best brands worldwide. Her blog is http://www.carolinehirons.com
I hope you enjoyed this blog.
