If you can’t get enough of our budgeted drugstore shopping hauls from Australia, Japan or Korea, you’d be happy to know that our city guide this week covers France – the one country that never fails in providing the best beauty products.
There’s a reason why everybody wants to know the beauty secrets of Parisian ladies who have got their beauty game down on pat (not to mention, they always so effortlessly beautiful!) Oftentimes, most of their beauty kit’s contents can be found in French drugstores, from La Roche-Posay skincare to Caudalie fragrances and face mists. In our recent trip to France, we compiled a list of what you can ShopandBox with EUR100 from City Pharma in St. Germain, a super popular pharmacy that’s well-known in France for its cheaper prices. Other pharmacy options in France that your Boxers can shop at for you include Beautyshop, one of France’s leading pharmacies that also has a good range of products.
