Working for a French company means I’m always thinking about the country across the channel. I make it over to Paris around two times a year with work and I’m always making a beeline for the pharmacy. That great thing about a lot of these brands now is that they are being stocked in good old Boots and online, at places like Escentual. I thought I’d talk through my top 5 products that I’m either using already or is on my wishlist.

First up is a personal favourite of mine – Bioderma’s SensibioH2O – Micelle Solution. I used to be a chronic face wipe user until I found this on my 2nd trip to Paris. I love it now – it takes off make-up really easily and even gets off stubborn waterproof mascara.

I love the Aroma-Perfection Anti-Shine Fluid from Nuxe – I actually picked this up from the M&S beauty hall a little while ago. This is perfect for my combination skin,I just apply is liberally to areas I know will get oily later.

Although my skin can get a little oily, I also have to suffer the intense air conditioning at work which my skin just hates. I try to drink water to re-hydrate it but sometimes your skin needs an extra boost. I’ve heard good things about La Roche-Posay Nutritic Intense Riche- I think I’d apply it to the effected areas and let it work it’s magic.

I’ve just bought a house and I’m 25 which means I have wrinkles already! I spotted the Caudalie Polyphenol [C15]Anti-Wrinkle Eye & Lip Cream which I’d love to apply to my prominent laughter lines around my mouth. I don’t have many wrinkles around my eyes yet but this should hold them off a little while longer.

Lastly I noticed that Avene’s Triacn√©al Cream is perfect for those little imperfections – I still get the odd spot and touch of disclouration on the skin. I think if I use all of these product I’ll have beautiful skin on the regular – right?
