Secret files: 11 cult French beauty products you haven't heard about a zillion times already!

Secret files: 11 cult French beauty products you haven't heard about a zillion times already! | The Beauty Gypsy | Scoop.it
Both pretty and potent, these are the cult beauty products French women, makeup artists and beauty editors are really obsessing over. Shhhhhhhh... !
Anubha Charan's insight:

Embryolisse and La Roche-Posay sit at every pharmacy around the corner. Avène and Bioderma are possibly even more easily available Stateside than in France. Le Petit Marseillais and Lierac are present at Walgreens.

 

French beauty, in short, is under threat of becoming almost generic.

 

Surely, there has to be something more?

Chantecaille Rose de Mai Face Oil: Let's talk about the rarest rose in the world of beauty | The Beauty Gypsy | Scoop.it
There are roses. And then there’s Rose de Mai. A flower so rare that it blooms for only three weeks a year. And I know of only one brand which uses it in high concentrations for skincare: Chantecaille.
Anubha Charan's insight:

There are roses. And then there’s Rose de Mai. A flower so rare that it blooms for only three weeks a year, in Grasse, the flower capital of France. The entire year’s production of this clear and sweet-scented rose, whose petals carry the notes of pale honey and green earth, is less than one day’s production of Bulgarian rose.
