Enjoying French Pharmacy Finds In The U.S. Of A


Not being at the Couture shows is upsetting for a few reasons. First and foremost, it’s missing out on things like seeing one of those gorgeous dresses—and Kim and Kanye—in person at Valentino that really eats us up. But we’re also still trying to come to terms with losing a golden opportunity to hit up la pharmacie for a few of our favorite skincare essentials. Luckily, one of our go-to French drugstore staples started shipping to the U.S. last year, which means we can take a little solace in the fact that we’ll still be able to partake in its latest launch. Embryolisse, the brand that makes the moisturizer to end all moisturizers, has just debuted its Lait-Crème Moussante Sans Savon, a nourishing cleansing cream for face and body that just so happens to be soap-free. We segued into soap-free cleansing creams in the spring after Sonya Dakar personally placed her Nutrasphere Sensi Wash in our hands and haven’t looked back. This creamy liquid formula is equally adept at thoroughly removing dirt and grime as it boasts tiny, barely perceptible microbeads that help exfoliate, while a milky consistency loaded with hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin E ensures that skin remains soft, not dried out. It certainly came in handy yesterday after a long day celebrating America in the unbearable July heat required a lot of post-party skin maintenance.
