French pharmacy products (Citypharma)

If you've read my Paris posts, you'll know that I went to Citypharma twice. It's a huge pharmacy in St. Germain where you can get some better deals than at other pharmacies in Paris. Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that some French pharmacy products have become a real hype, like Bioderma. I'll show you my selection of what I got at Citypharma (however you can get these products at almost every pharmacy in France). 
1. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse: A lovely all-purpose oil with a floral (I'd say yasmin) scent. read my post here 
€10.50 for 50 ml

2. Bioderma Créaline H2O Solution Micellaire: my favourite make-up remover. It's scent-less, very gentle and removes all make-up. 
€15 for two 500 ml bottles (€7.50 for one), €2.50 for a travel-size bottle

3. Klorane dry shampoo: I haven't tried this because I got this for a friend who told me this is the best dry shampoo, so I might have to borrow it from her some time;)
€7.90 for 150 ml

4. Biafine: this cream is mostly used to help the skin heal after sunburns or other burns, however it's also popular among make-up artists to soothe models' skin during fashion week. It also helps really dry skin as an overnight treatment. 
€3.90 for a big tube

5. Marvis toothpaste: Nice, very old fashioned toothpaste in metal tubes. I got 5 flavours for my family to try: cinnamon, licorice, very strong mint, yasmin and ginger.
€2.70 per tube

6. Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm: Forgot to add this to the picture, read my review here. 
€6.90 for 15 grams

Another recommendation is my all-time favourite face moisturiser by Avene (Skin Recovery Cream for sensitive skin). If you live in the UK you can buy some of these products on Escentual however some products (like Nuxe) are more than twice the price so it's worth stocking up when you go to France!
