Each time I’m coming back to Paris, I always have one thing in mind: going to City Pharma in the 6th district to shop the newest French pharmacy beauty products. In a previous post, I’ve already shared with you my favorite French pharmacy beauty products, but today I want to talk a little bit more about the French pharmacy eye cream.
Favored by make-up artists, models and beauty editors alike, French pharmacy beauty products are rightly famed for its fuss-free yet effective formulas at affordable prices. In French pharmacies the best buys are not always the most obvious, expensive, nor the fanciest-looking. So, selecting the best French pharmacy eye cream to treat eye bags, dark circles, and fine lines is not that easy. For this selection, I’ve carefully looked at the ingredient list to guarantee you both product efficacy and safety.
Parisian tip: For Parisians, CityPharama (near to Saint-Germain-des-Pres) is the best French pharmacy for its impressive selection of products and its low prices. I usually go there very early in the morning to avoid the crowd.
