For the rest of the month of June, you can get great discounts on the French pharmacy cosmetics brands at FeelUnique. This covers brands like La Roche-Posay, Vichy, Klorane, Caudalie, Eau Thermale Avène, Embryolisse, and a few others. The sale says “up to” 33% off because mostly all of the stuff is 33% off but there are a few exceptions that are 20% or 25% off instead. Caudalie products seem to be consistently just 20% off. It’s all quite good savings though. But you really need to hurry because they are selling out of stuff quickly! I’ve already missed out on a few things I wanted to try, though I’m hoping they get them back in stock before the end of the sale.
I’ve got a couple of reviews that I’ll be posting this week about some of my recent French pharmacy finds. I’ve got reviews of the following: Vichy Liftactive Serum 10 Eyes and Lashes, Vichy Idealia Life Serum, as well as La Roche-Posay Physiological Ultra-Fine Scrub. For the condensed version, I would have to say that they are all really great and I will be buying them again. I especially love the Vichy Serum 10 for eyes and lashes because it works well, but doesn’t irritate my eyes at all and you can put it on your entire eye area, even the lid, without causing irritation or problems. It is normally £25.00 at FeelUnique, but with the 33% off from the sale it is just £16.66, which is far less than the Lancome Hydra Zen eye cream that I used previously (£32.00 at FeelUnique for the same size container), but works just as well.
For years, people have been talking about how great all of these French pharmacy brands are for various beauty needs. The big reason they get so much love is that (for the most part) they are less pricey than premium cosmetics brands but give really great results with high quality ingredients, often including thermal water. So, this is a perfect time to try them out if you are unfamiliar, but curious. If you’re looking for some suggestions, I found some great articles that give plenty of recommendations:
