I’m off to France tomorrow! Heading to Lille for 5 days of relaxation, red wine and cheese.

And maybe, a little trip to a pharmacy or 2 to pick up some French products I’ve had my eye on recently. It’s true that French brands are so much more expensive in England so I am going to use my time wisely to stock up on some French pharmacy skin care goodness!

Some definite purchases:

Obviously, the classic Bioderma Micelle Water will make its way into my basket. My skin has improved so much since I started taking my make-up off with this instead of face wipes so this is a definite must have. Even better if I manage to find the double packs that I’ve seen floating around the blogosphere.

This product has been on my list all year but I’ve just not had a chance to pick it up yet. I’ve not actually tried an Avene product before so I’ll be interested to see if it lives up to the hype.

I picked up the Bioderma Moisturising mattifying fluid in Latvia on a whim and I’ve actually used it pretty much every day since so I will definitely be repurchasing this.

I’m sure I’ll end up purchasing a few more bits than this but these are on my must-buy list. Any other products you’d recommend I pick up?
