So you've just got your well earned pennies exchanged into euros for your trip to Paris, and if you're anything like me, you see that exchange rate as 'extra money' for example if you got out £500 worth of euros you would have €628, which makes me see dollar signs.. or should I say euro signs! And that only means one thing, shopping spree! Here is my top 5 list of products I would pick up in a French pharmacy that aren't all that easy to grab hold of on the UK highstreet.
Can you see a bit of a skincare theme here (obsessed!)
Of course, there is my much loved Effaclar Duo that I go through in a matter of moments! I am in dire need of a new one, but just haven't got round to purchasing one yet! Then the overly HYPED Bioderma, that I really liked when I had a mini sample, but not enough to have some shipped over via Amazon (let's just pop to France instead!) I love me some moisturiser and I have heard amazing things about the Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré which can be used on face on body to add moisture and repair skin! I have the tiniest bit of Caudalie Beaty Elixar left which I am clinging onto until I pick up another bottle because I love it! It's so hydrating and uplifting throughout the day. And lastly, another mist type product, the Avenue Thermal Spring Water which offers relief from nappy rash, sunburn, razor burn, bites, and other skin irritations. You are guarenteed to find a steal in French Pharmacies, now if only I were going to Paris...
You're back home, attempting to change your left over cents only to find you can only swap back notes and 'big' coins (this really disappointed me when I came back from Spain as I had a lot of loose change basically worthless to me!) and you end up with that jar full of Euros, dollars and even the odd Franc (that's old school French money) So instead of heading to Tesco or Sainsburys to change your currency back, try out cash4coins where you can just send ALL your left over money, coinage and all and they will get you the best rate of conversion sent directly to your bank account! Pretty damn snazzy if you ask me!
What's on your French pharmacy wishlist?
