1/3 Off French Pharmacy Products with Escentual & Two to Try


When I'm shopping for beauty products, 99% of the time I search the internet for various voucher codes and offers before buying. It's so much more satisfying when you find something you've been after at a fraction of the price. Last week, Escentual offered me the chance to try the Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum* from the French Pharmacy section of their website, which has 1/3 knocked off the price for the entire of March. Because I couldn't resist, I went and ordered the Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation too, and I'm more than pleased with both products. 

The Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum* is rich in Avene Thermal Spring Water and formulated for sensitive skin, which was right up my street. My skin often has irritating flare ups, and with a lot of skincare products intended to soothe I don't actually notice anything. This however I can feel calming the skin, and while I don't feel it hydrates instantly my dry patches on my forehead in particular have reduced in just a week. It's only early days with this but for now it's remaining in my daily routine.

I've heard many rave reviews about the Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation, but I was slightly apprehensive about ordering. The shade range is limited, and I'd read that 15 Opal had a tiny orange tinge that would be noticeable on paler skin. But there was the offer of medium-full coverage and the promise of evening out redness, so I took the plunge. This is hands down one of the best foundations I've tried yet. It has a light liquid consistency and blends seamlessly over the face without caking. On first application I was worried about how dark the foundation looked coming out of the tube but it's a pretty good match for my skin tone. It lasts my entire work day without the need for topping up. My only gripe is that I feel it could run out quite quickly, but I'll have to report back when I finish the tube.

You can find all of Escentual's French Pharmacy products for 1/3 off the price here. Let me know if you decide to place an order!

  5. The Vichy Dermablend is something I've wanted to try! I hear it could be great as a spot concealer too for those who don't want to apply it all over the face.
