It’s back… The deal that all beauty bloggers nationwide love and swoon over, it is the up to 1/3 of all French Pharmacy Brands offer at Escentual. I remember getting the email in my inbox at the end of May and letting out a little squeal of excitement. What better time to stock up on some of my favourite beauty products? I do love my French skincare. This deal is on throughout the whole of June so get filling those online baskets ladies. Here are some of the products that I can’t live without and that are forever re-purchased.

La Roche-Posay:

20140605-043125 pm-59485402.jpg
Effaclar Duo [+]* – £10.33 (RRP – £15.50).
Effaclar K – £9.66 (RRP – £14.50).
Effaclar A.I. Targeted Breakout Corrector – £7.00 (RRP – £10.50).
Effaclar Mat* – £9.66 (RRP – £14.50).
Cicaplast Baume B5 40ml – £4.33 (RRP – £6.50).

I have combination/oily skin that is prone to breakouts and La Roche-Posay’s Effaclar range has been a massive game changer since joining my skincare regime by helping me achieve a clearer and more even looking complexion. Cicaplast Baume B5 is a must have as it helps sooth and repair damaged skin, particularly great for that horrible dry skin stage after a nasty breakout.

Dermablend Setting Powder* – £11.33 (RRP – £17.00).
Normaderm 3 in 1 Cleanser + Scrub + Mask* – £8.00 (RRP – £12.00).

Vichy’s Dermablend Powder is THE setting powder to use if you have a greaseball for a face like I do. It is the perfect finish to your make up and it keeps your face intact like no other setting powder could for the majority of the day. An essential in my make up arsenal. Normaderm 3 in 1 is a fabulously versatile product that I personally like to use as a scrub twice a week to help clear up any pesky spots and remove any dead skin cells leaving my skin super smooth, clear and soft.


20140605-044141 pm-60101760.jpg
Sensibo Micelle Solution 250ml – £6.66 (RRP – £9.99).
Sebium Micelle Solution 250ml – £6.66 (RRP – £9.99).

Do I really need to say anything about Bioderma? We all know that is a beauty must have loved worldwide by bloggers, make up artists and celebrities alike. It removes every last trace of make up with ease and comes available in three different formulas for different skin types. I personally love Sensibo for sensitive skin and Sebium for oily skin.


20140605-044429 pm-60269461.jpg
Rêve de Miel Lip Balm – £6.33 (RRP – £9.50).
Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil 50ml – £11.33 (RRP – £17.00).

I love NUXE as they offer two of my all time favourite products; Rêve de Miel (the holy grail of all lip balms as nothing leaves my lips quite as soothed or as supple as this little pot of magic) and Huile Prodigieuse (my go to product for the Spring/Summer months as it hydrates and nourishes my skin and it smells heavenly).


20140605-044856 pm-60536220.jpg
Beauty Elixir 30ml – £9.20 (RRP – £11.80).

Another essential Spring/Summer staple for me is this gorgeous little glass bottle from Caudalie which I love to take on holiday (hence the 30ml bottle for the airport). It smells amazing and I like to spray this on to my face throughout the day for a more glowing complexion. Most of the time, when I’m not enjoying any form of nice weather or on holiday, I prefer to spray this on to my face before moisturising in the morning to lock in all of its goodness. Then it’s time to put my game face on.


20140605-045211 pm-60731157.jpg
Eau Thermale Thermal Spring Water – £4.87 (RRP – £6.50).
Soothing Hydrating Serum* – £12.75 (RRP – £17.00).

If you have sensitive skin then Avène is definitely a brand for you. I suffer with quite red skin on my cheeks and I love nothing more than spraying a good douse of Thermal Spring Water on to my skin in the mornings to help reduce irritation. It is also really good for oil control too. Although my skin is oily, it is also pretty dehydrated so I like to use the Soothing Hydrating Serum after my normal cleanse and tone routine but before I moisturise to help restore some hydration to my skin.


You can also get up to 1/3 off Eucerin, Klorane, Rene Furterer, A-Derma, Evian, Biafine, etc.

So there we have it guys… These are my must have products from Escentual. What are yours? Have you taken advantage of this offer yet?
