I’m a beauty lover, but I’m not the biggest beauty shopper. Since I’m lucky to receive products in PR every once in a while (which is always indicated below every post), I don’t need to buy a lot of products myself. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to. I visited a handful of beauty shops on my recent trip to Paris and went to Sephora, but contained myself and only came home with a couple of beauty buys.
At Monoprix Beauté (a specialised branch of Monoprix that offers a wide variety of beauty products – from Maybelline to Christophe Robin), I bought two sheet masks by BRTC, a brand I hadn’t heard of yet. The Vitamin H Velvet Mask is supposed to provide skin relief, while the Vitamin C Velvet Mask is targeted for dull, pigmented skin. Expect a Mask Monday on both of these in the following months. (I’m not that fast)
I also got some random samples by Weleda and Sanoflore. Cute.
At the pharmacie, I bought the Sports Akileïne NOK cream. A recommendation from my sister, who said it works well as an anti-chafing cream. I’ve tried Smoovall in the past and liked it, but it’s quite pricey if you use it a lot. This cream won’t run out as fast. I’m currently testing this one!
And the last one already! Pixi’s Glow Tonic has been on my wishlist for a while now, but I couldn’t justify buying a full-price product when I still had a few tonics that I needed to try at home. But since this one was a sample size in that dreaded Sephora aisle, well…
