We’ve discovered many of our favorite beauty staples in French pharmacies over the years. Of course, as we clean up our beauty routines, our favorites have changed (in fact, we wrote a roundup of French pharmacies in the early days, and exactly one of the products in it meets our cleaning standards today). But our love affair with French beauty, whether the products are truly French or simply exude that ineffable air of mystery and common sense, remains as passionate as ever. From a velvety orange peel balm and a rich and elegant cream infused with resveratrol (the French paradox antioxidant compound found in red wine) to a shinier, smoother hair styling cream ever, our French pharmacy inspired obsessions are clean and best-in-class.
