Today I’m revealing the best address where to buy French pharmacy products in London. If you’re obsessed with French brands like me, and you can’t make it to Paris this post is for you! Indeed, there are actually some pretty decent pharmacies right here in London where you can find all the cult French brands.
In case you know nothing about French pharmacy you can still check my previous posts about the best cult French pharmacy products you need in your beauty cabinet. If you’re inspired by my picks and wondering where to buy them, here’s my guide to the best destinations for French pharmacy shopping in London.
Where to Buy French Pharmacy Beauty in London
Boots is the first shop that I’m thinking about when I need to stock French Pharmacy products. Indeed, there is a boots store in every street of London! There are 2,500 stores in the UK and over 90% of the UK population is within 10 minutes of a Boots store. However, Boots doesn’t contain all the French brands but only the cult ones including Avene, Bioderma, Eucerin, Embryolisse, Klorane, La Roche-Posay, and Vichy. https://www.boots.com/store-locator
The Garden Pharmacy
The Garden Pharmacy is located on Mercer Street in Coven Garden and contains all cult French Pharmacy brands among Avene, Bioderma, Caudalie, Institut Esthederm, La Roche Posay, Lierac, Nuxe, Vichy, etc. Around the edge of the store is the high-end brands such as Clarins and Clinique and down the center are the more niche brands. That’s why I love this shop; as I’ve found some brands that I haven’t seen anywhere else. If one day you’re doing your shopping in Covent Garden, stop by this shop to stock all the best French pharmacy products. 17 Sovereign Park, Park Royal, https://www.garden.co.uk/
John Bell & Croyden
The John Bell & Croyden is a pharmacy located in Wigmore Street in the City of Westminster (West End of London). This pharmacy dates from 1798 and in 2015 it re-opened its doors after a 6 months transformation! This pharmacy is my favorite one! I could spend hours browsing the shelves as the list of beauty brands they stock is impressive. They were one of the first UK stores to stock Bioderma and they have all other brands you could expect from a pharmacy, plus more. This is one of London’s oldest and biggest pharmacies and an absolute treasure trove of health and beauty finds. 50 Wigmore Street, http://johnbellcroyden.co.uk/
Make me feel
Make me feel is what we called in France a parapharmacie. Indeed, it’s a store where you can find a huge variety of beauty products including personal hygiene, make-up, cosmetics, diet food, baby products, etc. However French parapharmacie cannot sell any medicine.
Make Me Feel is a unique boutique providing the best products in skincare, medicines, baby care, and vitamins & supplements, with the best professional expertise. They also propose consultations provided by their in house medical consultants such as sophrology, physiotherapy, nutrition or aromatherapy. 25 Abbeville Road, London, https://makemefeel.co.uk/
The Allchin Pharmacy is a beautiful store that reminds me of the Parisian pharmacies! In this pharmacy, you can find a huge range of French pharmacy brands among Nuxe, Caudalie, Phyto, Klorane, Vichy, etc. Allchin Pharmacy is my go-to pharmacy if you’re living close to Belsize Park or Chalk Farm. I’ve shopped in here for over a year and I always pop in once a month. 28 Englands Lane, https://www.allchinpharmacy.co.uk/
Leonce Chenal is a modern lifestyle platform created and curated by a French woman for lovers of everything French. What started in 2018 as an online space to share French beauty tips has since evolved into a destination for fashion, beauty, and the French art de vivre.
I live in West London and Hillcrest Pharmacy in Holland Park has a lot of French and Italian products. So many things i cannot get at other pharmacies!
Thank you for sharing your favorite French pharmacy in London 🙂
