French women are known for taking their beauty and skincare regimes very seriously and I, for one, take notice. Having a mother who lives in France, and traveling there as often as I do, I have learned a VERY interesting little secret ~ often their drugstore beauty products are considered the equivalent to our department store beauty products here.   … Did you know that?

So today I thought I’d share 5 of my most-trusted French drugstore beauty products that I can’t live without and YOU don’t have to go to France to purchase.  They are all available online and are ALL priced at less than $50 each.  … Can I get a très bien, s’il vous plaît?!

Alrighty then,  let’s get started with Embroyolisse ~ Lait-Crème Concentré.

This moisturizer has a huge cult following. It is the staple of makeup artists and is often the only moisturizer they use because it works on every skin type.  It’s super hydrating to the skin, makes it plump AND is considered the perfect hydrating primer.  I like that it doesn’t have much of a scent and I’ve been using this little gem for years.

Not for your skin but rather your hair, this is a fabulous finishing spray.  I always pick up a few cans in France because not only does it really hold your hair in place, it also volumizes, softens and moisturizes your hair without weighing it down.  Psst.  It has a secret extract that contains vitamin B5.

Makeup artists purchase this in bulk and a bottle is sold every three seconds in the world.  It is considered to be one of the best makeup removers ever and will cut through the smokiest of all smoky eyes.  It looks and feels just like water but this is Micellar water …  and will totally clean your skin without irritating it. OH ~ You don’t even have to rinse your face afterwards!

This is my most FAVORITE French drugstore product ever and YES, 80% of why I feel this way is because I think it just smells so good! This dry oil contains vitamin E, macadamia oil, sweet almond oil, hazelnut oil, and camellia and French women swear that it is the BEST skin-silkener. You can use it anywhere on your body, including your hair!  … Did I mention that it smells GREAT??!

And lastly … CAUDALÍE ~ Eau De Beauté

This light facial mist tightens pores, energizes your skin and sets your makeup. The recipe for this elixir hasn’t changed for over 20 years and contains 99% natural ingredients such as rose, peppermint, orange blossom and grape pulp.  All these combined will calm, tone and brighten your skin.  I basically use this  twice a day and the one ounce size is really kind of perfect.

And so, as I bid you adieu I must ask … Do YOU have any secret drugstore beauty products you’d like to share?  Please ~ my face needs to know!
