Maybe, it’s the way French women take care of their skin that leave others wanting to chime in on their secrets. Or perhaps it’s the fact that everything French screams opulence, luxury, and sophistication.

But more than anything, French skincare, whether tips or brands, are proven to be effective and easy to use, containing only natural ingredients that make them quintessential for your every day routine. So which of these brands should be in your beauty radar?


A lot of influential Parisians swear by French pharmacy brand Nuxe, especially its most popular product Huile Prodigieuse. This iconic multi-use dry oil offers perfect moisture for the face, body and hair, making it a favourite among celebrities and makeup artists. Recently, Nuxe also launched its Nuxe Crème Fraiche de Beaute, a moisturiser containing tiny mineral particles to give you that unmistakable glow each time they catch the light when you move. The product also contains a mix of camellia, hazelnut, sweet almond, borage, macadamia, and argan oils that offer supple hydration.


Talika is most known for its eye mask that contains a blend of essential oils like safflower, avocado, rose, and wheat germ that help reduce puffiness and inflammation along the eye area. Those who tried this French eye therapy patch noticed changes just 30 minutes after applying it on the eyes. This eye mask is also perfect for long haul flights when you need to keep the eye area moisturised. A lot of French women also swear by Talika’s eyelash conditioning cream that helps create thicker and fuller lashes that you won’t need to wear extensions or false eyelashes ever again. 


Almost every editor, model, celebrity and makeup artist knows about cult French moisturizer Embryolisse. French women have used the brand for many years, but it became so popular in the U.S. after makeup artists discovered its products. Embryolisse’s most popular product is the Crème Anti-Age Global, which contains all the ingredients you’d want for a younger-looking skin, including hyaluronic acid and vitamin E. Those who tried the product attest to its nourishing, hydrating and plumping effects, and it even smoothes fine lines after continued use. 


The brand’s beauty elixir is one of the most purchased French skincare products in the world, so it’s no surprising that Caudalie is a must-have for anyone who wanted to look younger and more radiant. This complexion treatment has ingredients like rose, mint, and rosemary that balance, tone, and soothe the skin while making you feel as relaxed as if you were in a spa.

The French really know beauty like the back of their hands. They’re known for effortless, low-maintenance skincare routines that use only the best products from these brands. So if you want to look as young, radiant and glowing as these French women, you’d have to try one or all of these brands at some point because they’re definitely worth the investment. If you love their skincare products, you should also try French fashion.
