7 New(ish) French Beauty Products We Can't Stop Talking About
We hardly need an occasion to demonstrate our long-standing Francophilia these days. From the borderline-absurd selection of drugstore products to their (almost) effortless approach to hair, makeup, and wellness, there really isn't much about French beauty that isn't covetable. Oh, and PS: Every French woman we encounter seems to have an endless stream of low-key amazing beauty secrets (though she'll always play it off as nothing).
And while we can't all be French girls, we can shop like one—starting with these notable new launches from some of the best makeup, skin, and haircare brands on that side of the Atlantic. From a travel-friendly hair oil to a truly game-changing face cream, shop some of the best new French beauty launches of the year below.
Sisley Paris Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream ($179)
Immediately upon applying Sisley's new moisturiser, it's easy to understand why it's the cult-loved brand's biggest launch in years—there's nothing else quite like it. Thanks to a unique water-in-oil emulsion that transforms into droplets upon contact with the skin, our complexions are left impossibly hydrated, velvety, and radiant. Pro tip: Use it pre-foundation for a noticeably dewy finish that lasts for hours on end.
Bioderma Sensibio Foaming Gel ($30)
This cult brand is a French-girl mainstay, and with good reason. We're long-standing fans of the classic Micellar Cleansing Water, but this foaming cleanser has definitely taken up residence in our shower. It will remove all makeup and impurities without drying out even the most sensitive skins.
Lancome Visionnaire Crescendo Night Peel ($125)
Proving that French-girl skin care is not just milky lotions and thermal water, this 28-day peel from Lancome is an intensive two-phase system that uses fruit, glycolic and salicyclic acids to reveal a brighter complexion. Use in the lead up to a big event.
Apot.Care Serum Wake Up In St. Tropez Botanical Day Reviving Concentrate ($122)
This luxe serum uses a blend of essential oils and vitamin E to erase skin dullness and fatigue (regardless if it's from too much partying in the EU or too many hours desk-side). If you're not sea-side on the French Riviera with a spritz in hand, this French serum is the next best thing.
