Gwyneth Paltrow’s favourite French cosmetics

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

Mevrou Paltrow recently took to her blog, GOOP, to dish on some of her favourite French cosmetics. ‘Many of the absolute best beauty products I’ve found come from regular French pharmacies,’ she says, adding that she always stocks up when she’s in the country or gets her friends to bring things back for her when they’re passing through.

Her favourite items that are available locally include Decleor Aromaessence Baume Spa Relax, R565, (which she applies to her whole bod before bed to help relax her muscles)…

If it’s good enough for Gwynnie, its good enough for me…

…and Bioderma Sensibio H2O make-up remover, R139,95. Gwyn calls it the ‘best make-up remover’, saying ‘it’s unscented, doesn’t dry out your skin or sting, and gets rid of all your make-up with a few swipes’. 

I’ve actually used this and it is amazing. It feels like your swiping plain old water across your face and yet your make-up melts off in a flash.

You can find both Decleor and Biorderma products at selected Wellness Warehouse stores.
