I’m a little late to the party (per usual), but yesterday and today are Amazon Prime Days where Amazon Prime members can get great deals on lots of different products available on Amazon. It officially kicks off the holiday shopping I suppose (seems so early!). I’ve selected a few of my French favorites that are available on Amazon Prime Day. These are all products that I use and really love.
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré
Embroylisse Lait-Crème Concentré is probably the French pharmacy cult-beauty find. And for good reason. Makeup artists swear by it as a makeup primer, but I love it for the rich, thick, moisture-locking feeling I get every time I use it. There’s no problem using it every day, but I really love it at night and during the colder months. If you haven’t tried it yet, now is the moment!
Vichy Mineral 89 Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum
I love this Vichy Mineral 89 Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum. It’s a great serum and daily moisturizer and you really feel it plumping your skin right away. Originally I bought it as a gift for Romain. I asked a French pharmacist what she would recommend and she told me her sons and husband used this because it was effective and a one-step product. I tried it one time and was hooked. It’s great option for travel because it’s an all-in-one.
Turkish Towels are super versatile and a great thing to have around, especially for summer travel. You can use them for anything – I’ve used mine as a yoga mat, beach towel, blanket and more. They’re a lot lighter than regular towels and also dry much quicker. Plus they come in lots of great colors!
Bioderma Micellar Water
Bioderma Micellar Water is another cult-favorite French pharmacy pick because it’s a cleansing water and a makeup remover in one. There are different versions available for different types of skin – I use the sensitive formula. I started using it when I moved to France simply out of curiosity (it’s everywhere) and don’t think I’ll ever be able to go back to other makeup removers!
L’Occitane Head-to-toe Beauty Favorites Kit
This is an awesome Prime Day deal from an ultimate French favorite brand, L’Occitane. The L’Occitane Head-to-toe Beauty Favorites Kit would be a great thing to buy for almost anyone – lovers of travel, France, beauty and more! It’s a great way to try out some of L’Occitane’s most-loved products.
Vichy Thermal Water
Thermal water was something that I didn’t fully understand until I used it. I’ve always loved it for travel, but it was when I started using it every day that I really saw the difference in my skin. The water in Paris is hard, so I spray it on my face before applying anything. Now I’m completely addicted. It helps with aging, to reinforce the skin barrier, and just improves the general quality of skin. I’ve tried a lot of different thermal waters but the Vichy thermal water is my favorite. Just as a note – the Prime Day deal is only available on the 10.1 oz format.
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones
Okay so these Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones aren’t exactly “French,” however, they will save your life on the flight to France! My dad got me hooked on these headphones and I don’t think I’ll ever take a long-haul flight without them again. I leave them in my carry-on bag to make sure I don’t forget them when I travel. Once you experience a noise-cancelled flight you won’t look back. I know some airlines give these out, but in these COVID-19 times wouldn’t you rather have your own? They’re expensive but worth it.
Sorry for another headphone recommendation…but if you haven’t tried Airpods yet now is the moment. Airpods are a game changer for everything, but especially traveling and walking around Paris. I didn’t understand why they were so great until I tried them, and again, I’ll never go back to headphones with wires. They just make everything easier!
European Plug Adapter
Another must-have France travel essential is European plug adapters. I don’t think you can ever have enough of these – I’m always either losing them, leaving them behind somewhere, or loaning them out. These are great because they work for the US to most of Europe and they have USB ports too. Another great item to just keep in your travel bag!
I hope you enjoyed this selection of French Favorites available on Amazon Prime Day! Next year I’ll try to be more on top of when the days are. Happy shopping!
