Find out why FRENCH women love this product

Oh the smell of roses is dancing in the air, Michael Buble is now your morning prayer. Love notes pasted across the city of Paris leading you to the Eiffel Tower. Rose petals scattered across the bed with candles flickering in the background. While this may be your reality for French people, you will be surprised that French people are the most practical in love. 

Rather than filling the ‘gram with cheesy love poems and expensive gifts that has been meticulously picked out for a few extra likes and follows. The French have a quieter expression for love, which all starts with loving and treating yourself.

The night before Valentines day, the bathroom is filled with all sorts of perfumes, creams, and treatments to make sure that they feel and look the best for their man. It starts with a relaxing bath with a glass of their favourite red. They say that you can’t give yourself to the fullest until you love yourself.

Pampering Bath

Pampering starts in the bath, French women love adding oils into the bath. In fact, oils are a common skin staple for a lot of French women.  Oils when natural, deliver impeccable skin restorative properties like brightening, plumping and detoxifying the skin. It’s a common misconception that oils cannot be used on oily skin, and unfortunately the complexion is over cleansed and stripped. This actually produces more oils to compensate, resulting in a vicious cycle of more oil production leading to even an oilier complexion. What we should be doing is feeding the skin a healthy quality of oil to rebalance and strengthen the moisture barrier of the skin.  

Some of our favourite oils are Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil and Caudalie Divine Oil. These multi-purpose oils contain a blend of oils to leave the skin feeling softer, repaired and nourished. A few drops in the bath is your entrée to your beauty pamper night!
