Some of the best French beauty products are sold in drugstores in France and they rival the pricey ones we covet here in the U.S. It’s hard not to be jealous, but Amazon has a pretty amazing selection of French beauty products (yes, Amazon!), which means you don’t have to travel overseas to try some of our favorites.

Homeoplasmine Ointment

This ointment soothes irritated, cracked skin almost immediately for flawless makeup application (some makeup artists use it to give models a dewy look!). Although it’s packaged similarly to Neosporin and Vaseline, it’s actually surprisingly light.

A313 Vitamin A Pommade

If you want to treat fine lines and wrinkles yourself, this pomade can help: it’s a synthetic version of vitamin A, which is known for its wrinkle-treating properties. Use on skin overnight, instead of during the day, since vitamin A can make your skin sensitive to sunlight.

Klorane Shampoo with Desert Date

French drugstore favorite, Klorane has a desert date shampoo that helps repair and strengthens the hair over time. Dates are rich in fatty acids and proteins which help strengthen hair (and get split-ends in shape).

Bioderma Micellar Water

Bioderma Micellar Water has a cult following for a good reason. It removes makeup effectively without stripping the skin and penetrates cells to remove dirt. An added plus? You don’t have to do any additional cleansing after you use it.

Embryolisse Concentrated Lait Cream

If you’re looking for a 3-in-1 product, look no further. This Lait Cream removes makeup, moisturizes skin, and even works as a cleansing lotion for babies. It’s an emulsifier and a softening agent to restore the natural balance of the skin.
