Paris Beauty Haul

I mentioned in an earlier post that I couldn’t wait to go shopping in Paris, especially since I’d been away for almost 2 months. When I was sick, stuck in bed at home I had the time to write a list with products I wanted to buy, I was especially excited to go to the pharmacie, but after receiving all of these coupons from Sephora I had to take a look there as well, and no, I didn’t leave empty handed… :)

At the pharmacy I bought my beloved Bioderma Crealine H2O, which I can’t live without. I decided to get the 500 ml one as well as the baby/travel sized one as I’ll probably travel a lot this summer. I also got the new tinted sunscreen from La Roce-Posay which I can’t wait to try. I’m already a huge fan of La Roche-Posay’s sunscreens and that it now comes in a tinted version is even better. Last but not least I bought the Huile Prodigeuse with golden Shimmer from Nuxe which is also great for summer, it gives my skin such a beautiful glow.

At Sephora I didn’t buy that much actually, probably because they didn’t have most of the stuff I was looking for. A while ago I got some samples of the Hydra Beauty Cream from Chanel and after testing it – and loving it – I decided to get a full size jar. This creams smells delicious and it makes my skin so soft. I also decided to get the Diorshow Iconic mascara which I’ve tried before and was really pleased with. The last year or so I’ve mostly been using mascaras from Lancome and I really like L’Extreme, however I was really disappointed with Hypnose Doll Eyes. Another product I bought at Sephora is the Clinique Age Defense BB Cream SPF 30 but unfortunately I’m returning it. I should have read the reviews at Makeupalley before buing it, after having the product on for about one hour my skin broke out terribly, it was really not good for my skin.

What do you think about my beauty haul? Are you familiar with any of the products above?
