C’est l’amour.. How we adore French cosmetics. I do feature on my blog, products that you can get from other countries. There’s something about the exotic appeal, buying things that have a history to them, or new advancement in skincare that’s just not sold here. Here I’m going to list some French cosmetics that you can get your hands on, AND they’re affordable! This is great for every French girl (or French girl wannabe).
