When I went to Paris with a friend two years ago, we decided to stop by a French pharmacy to pick up some of the famed skincare items that you can only find there. We arrived with lists and proceeded to basically clear the shelves. I nearly died laughing when I realized that, between the two of us, we had arrived at the checkout with roughly sixteen bottles of Bioderma Miscellar Water (for us and as gifts). We ended up needing to buy another suitcase just for the pharmacy items we bought!
Two years later, I am still using these products (and loving them). Bioderma’s Miscellar Water, for instance, is an amazing makeup remover (I always use it when I’m too tired to wash my face at night) and skin toner. And, miraculously, these products are now available stateside. So, you don’t need to plan a trip to Paris to get them. But don’t let me stop you if you’d rather go get them in person.
Here are my favorites:
