French Skin Care Secrets

These are some of my favorite, tried & true skin care products! I’m a bit of a skin care junkie, I’ve tried many things and these are some of my favorites that happen to be made in France. I always feel like even if you can’t afford all sorts of fancy creams and such, it is the routine and the consistency of a good skin-care regimen that makes the biggest difference (ie exfoliate regularly, wash twice a day, etc). And of course it is cliché but true, skin care is so much better of an investment than make-up. I don’t like too much make-up, or looking like I tried too hard. Better to take care of yourself an let your real beauty and confidence shine.


AVENE THERMAL SPRING WATER I know, I know, its a bottle of water. But it is really cooling, soothing, and I can use it on my baby and not have to worry about it. Its a nice refreshing alternative to a toner some mornings. Eau Thermale Avene Thermal Spring Water

NUXE DRY OIL At first I didn’t like this one. The smell bothered me, I almost returned it. But after awhile I got used to it and started to love it. Just a dab here and there, just after the shower. Something I didn’t know I needed and now I can’t seem to do without! Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil 50ml/1.6oz

FRESH SOY CLEANSER Of course I’ve seen this for years but until I tried it I didn’t understand what the fuss was about. It truly leaves my complexion soothed and glowing. And surprisingly it really deep cleans my pores! I just love that I can use it on my eyes to get all my makeup off. Fresh Soy Face Cleanser and Makeup Remover - Rich in Amino Acids - For Face and Eyes

CAUDALIE EYE BALM This is a new purchase for me but I am really liking it so far. The creamy gel texture is comforting. Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Eye Lifting Balm

FRESH VITAMIN NECTAR FACE MASK I’m sure I never would have purchased this but it was included in a gift pack. I was very surprised at the results! It gives you an instant glow. I use it about twice a week and I’m on my second jar now. Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask

CAUDALIE HAND CREAM Okay, so a couple years ago I started to panic because my hands were looking really old. I started using this stuff EVERY NIGHT before I go to bed and I have seen a world of difference! It has eliminated the dry wrinkles and combats discoloration. Life saver! Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream

L’OCCITANE FOOT CREAM For years I was using weak foot creams that didn’t have much effect. I’m glad I found L’Occitane, this cream is rich and luxurious and with regular use has refreshed and improved my feet. L’Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream
