It's no secret that I have much love for all things French and it was only when I was closer examining my daily routine that I realised a lot of the products I am currently using happen to be French. I present to you, my French Fancies - The Autumn Edition!
Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Serum
With the amount of skin care I try it's hard to determine the results you from specific products. This serum was one of those products I instantly noticed a difference my skin looked radiant and felt great - and I wasn't the only one who noticed. I very rarely stick to the same skincare but this one made such a difference that as soon as I'd finished it I knew I needed it back in my life. This serum is great to incorporate into your skin care routine, especially in the colder months - it's high in antioxidants, anti-wrinkle (I need it!) and leaves the skin glowing
I love a good oil, especially to lather on to my skin overnight. This is another Caudalie favourite, the Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil is the ultimate product for hydrating dry skin and soothing sensitivity. It's ideal for me, especially as the weather gets colder my skin suffers and this is the perfect pick me up - When I wake up in the morning my skin feels moisturised and looks radiant.
I've confessed my love for this product in numerous favourites videos, in my opinion it's the easiest product to hydrate the body. I hate coming out of the shower and feeling cold, so moisturising my body has to be quick and easy. I spritz this all over and massage it in to my skin. It locks in the moisture, keeping me hydrated and it absorbs so well without a greasy finish - Parfait!
I recently blogged about this lip balm, so I'm not going to go into it all again but as I was covering my French Fancies it had to be included - nourishing, exfoliating and the best base for lipstick. Check out the full post HERE.
I don't know what I love more about this balm, the texture? or the scent? My obsession with Diptyque is slightly evident in this post and their skin care is no exception, it's amazing. This hand balm is from one of their travel sets and it sits comfortably on my desk to keep my forever typing hands moisturised.
I first used Embryolisse about four years ago, I was hooked on the face cream! I've now found love for the Lait-Fluide, it's such a light weight texture but extremely hydrating. It can be used in so many ways to moisturise the face, the body or even used to remove make up. I think it's the beautiful smell of this product that always has me wanting to apply more.
As far as fragrance goes I've whipped out my French favourites from Diptyque (Obviously!). I don't know what it is about their distinctive, unique scents but they are by far my go-to's for Autumn/Winter.
Volutes - This is a super smokey fragrance with top notes of tobacco and dried fruit, it's balanced so beautiful with opoponax and myrh, which makes it quite powdery when it settles.
34 - The ultimate Autumn evening fragrance, it's heavy on but I adore it on the skin. It's masculine, it's musky and the scent itself is based on the aromas of the flagship store on 34 Boulevard Saint Germain.
There is no better candle to burn at this time of the year than Diptiqyue's Figiuer, everything about the smell of this burning reminds me of Autumn. It's fresh like the leaves falling in the outdoors but still so warming - very similar to the Philosykos fragrance obvs!
Believe it or not, I had to cut down my French Fancies, there were so many products I love but I had to stop somewhere or this post would go on.. and on..
Are any of you suckers for French products like me?
