Shopping: French pharmacies


Where you can get the beauty must-haves of impeccable French women.

So I was in France recently and the first thing I did was check out the pharmacies in the neighbourhood.

Most French pharmacies, even the run-of-the-mill ones, are more well-stocked in great beauty products than anywhere else I’ve been to.

So I spotted this really nice, sprawling one in an exclusive neighbourhood.







They have everything from quality nail clippers, sparkly eveningwear-appropriate headbands to luxe Phillip B haircare and Mason Pearson brushes (one of the best in the world).

And at a good price too.

But as usual, I stock up on the best Micellar lotion brand out there: Bioderma.

It gets rid of makeup quickly and gently, and is good for the skin.

And I got some Klorane dry shampoo to keep my scalp clean, and hair voluminous.

So the next time you are in France, you know where to go get your beauty fix.

  1. AHHH – this is like beauty porn. LOVE IT. I’m drooling over all those amazing options just floating around their drugstores. Do they carry Avene?

      Yes they do! Any French pharma beauty brand you can think of, it is there :)

      • No, because I also picked up a bad sinus infection in France – not the best souvenir, mind you – but it will be up as soon as I’m better :)

        Looking forward to it! :)
