French Beauty, Oo La La

Have I mentioned how much I adore all things French?  Well, I do...French major in college, love French food and fashion, and dream of heading back to Paris.  Along with that comes a love and admiration for French beauty products.

Two of my fav Frenchie brands are L'Occitane en Provence and Institut Esthederm.  One hails from the countryside of Provence, the latter, the haute skincare labs of Paris.  Here are a couple of their products I can't do without:

Lavender Vinegar, L'Occitane - this little tin bottle packs a powerful punch when it comes to pimples.  Dab it on over trouble spots, and let the natural properties of lavender dry out and heal the area.  Love it!  $14 www.loccitane.com

Cellular Water Gel, Institut Esthederm - This cooling moisturizer has the texture of pudding, and feels amazing going on.  It's super hydrating, and I have the softest, smoothest skin when I use it. $58 www.spacenk.com

Green Tea Solid Perfume, L'Occitane - Solid perfume is ingenious.  It's perfect to keep in your bag for touch-ups during the day, and great for traveling and getting through airport security. Not only is it convenient, the scent is beautiful...light, airy and a bit watery. $9 www.loccitane.com 

These beauty products are my little way of feeling French each and every day.  :)
