I'm not sure whether you read my older post (you can read it HERE) but it did say that I was going to France for a couple of days with my family. So this is a post to show you the couple of things I bought and some family piccies :) Hope you enjoy!
This is what I bought:
These sweets are literally the nicest sweets ever, we get the yellow packets in our French lessons at school (mine and Ellies favourite bit!) and the foamy strawberries are just to die for!
I also bought 2 really cute bracelets, but I was wearing them and they are so difficult to get off! Hehe.
So to start off with I am going to show you the Embroylisse Lait-Crème Concentré. I had never heard of this before I was dragged around, spending most of my days in France in Pharmacies with my sisters, so I thought I might as well make something productive of it! L'amour Josie said that this is supposed to be really good, and you can even use it as a primer as well as a moisturizer and cleanser.
My thought was "WOW! All 3 in one and it is only 13.30 euro! Must buy." So I did, and I tried it today and loved it!
I'm not really sure if you can see this picture, but I tried my best :)
It has been chucking it down all day today, and my make up stayed on perfectly :) MY face felt soft and my pause’ were non-existent! I am so pleased with this buy, and will probably use it forever :)
Next up is the Avène Eau Thermale which translates to Avène Thermal Water.
I have used this before since my sister introduced me to it on a hot summers day (I know, very rare!) this year, so I bought a mini one from boots. But as it is made in France, it is so much cheaper! Because if I am correct, I think it is just water from French mountains or something which is very refreshing! This bad boy only cost me 6.95euro!
I wish I had bought a couple more of the little ones which are easier to carry around with me, but that just gives me an excuse to go back, right?! And my lovely Dad has offered to take me and a couple of friends to Calais soon, so who knows!
I completely recommend both of these fantastic products! As I have already mentioned, the first one is just fantastic in every single way, and the second product is just so refreshing and it refreshes your make up too :) I do, however, recommend buying them in France if you get the chance to go as it is so much cheaper and makes you feel OK about buying them as you aren't spending so much money. Plus you get to try everything else out, like I said, I could have spent so much more!
Here are a couple of family pictures and pictures of views :)
The pictures are a bit bad because they were taken off my phone, but the first one is a view from the hotel room I stayed in with my parents and younger brother. The older ones stayed in another room. I think the second picture looks quite a lot like the house out of the film of 'A Series Of Unfortunate Events.' Don't you agree?
The pizza and salad were delicious, but unfortunately I didn't like the pudding I got one night :( No worries, though, because the macaroons were lovely! I had never tried them before this, but I knew I wanted to, and I was glad I did :)
Are there any products you like from France, or other countries?
