A day trip to Paris

Dior teaches the rest of the industry how to do a 'pop-up' shop

A little walk down Avenue L'Opera to my favourite chemist....

White Clay. On the shelf. Bliss.

Green clay next door to it. Before it went in my basket.


Shedloads of Avene - naturellement

Baby Avene

My favourite bath salts. See that gap? That'd be me.

And finally - aah Bioderma. Or 'crack' as its known to makeup artists.


  1. I like this post a lot. I really have to go to Paris!! (I love Avene, although I'm sure I could learn to like the other stuff too ;) x

  2. Fab pics! I am drooling at all the French pharmacy goodies, and that Le Metier de Beaute stand is super-swish! I am curious about Patyka as Naturisimo has started stocking this line.

  3. I think I need a moment after looking at that Bioderma display. SO didn't understand why I was more excited when he brought me a big bottle of that back from Paris over the big bottle of Chanel No.5. Silly boys.

  4. Hmmm - I'm considering booking a flight there right now! x

  5. Forgive me if you get this twice, but Google is playing games again. I just wanted to know where the LMdB counter is as I've got friends in Paris who can send me all the stuff I didn't get when the brand was available here. Thanks Caroline!

  6. WOW - nothing beats a Parisian pharmacy! Amazing pics! x

  7. wistful sigh *rests cheek on hand*

  8. Holy bob, I love all the pictures of all the brands there... so many I've never even seen before! The French do beauty right... What a fun trip that looked to be.
