Paris Haul!

I couldn’t possibly visit Paris and not buy a thing or two.
Paris literally has a pharmacy in every street packed with amazing brands like Bioderma, La Roche-Posay, Nuxe, Avene, etc.
And even though we can get hold of these brands in the UK you can get them for a fraction of the price in France. So why not stock up?

My first must have was Bioderma´s Micelar water, this is a staple in my skin care routine and I go through them like water.
The 500ml bottle retails for £20 in the UK, I bought these two 500ml bottles for 17€, amazing bargain right?

Then I had to get La Roche-Posay Effaclar purifying foaming gel, even though I already have one in reserve. I love this cleanser as it is gentle and effective, it doesn’t leave your skin feeling stripped from all moisture and leaves oily skin feeling clean and fresh. You can also buy this in the UK, but to this day I haven’t seen a 400 ml bottle with a pump. The bottle I am using at the moment was bought well over a year a go, a little pump really does go a long way with this one.

Next was the La Roche-Posay Serozinc, this is a first purchase for me. I really wanted to try so I thought it was the perfect timing.

The rest of the items I bought are from Sephora. Even though there was a great selection of brands and products I decided not to splurge too much as the majority of the brands are available in the UK for a similar price. (Sephora in the EU doesn’t stock the same brands as Sephora in the US)

I love Sephora´s selection on minis, and even though Make Up For Ever is a brand you can get hold off in the UK I decided to get a mini Mattifying Primer. My skin rarely looks shiny but it does sometimes feel oily. A mini is always a good idea when you don’t know how your going to get on with the product. But honestly if I could I would have filled my basket with all the minis, they are so cute!

I decided to go crazy for the Sephora brand masks, but they are not all for me promise!
I’m not a fan a face sheet masks, but I had to try the rest of the Sephora sheet mask collection. I really wanted to try the eye masks as that area of my skin tends to get quite dry. I still haven’t tried any of them but I let you know how I get along with them.
