As some of you may know from my last post, I have recently been to Paris. While I was in Paris I thought I would pay Sephora a visit. I have heard lots about Sephora from other bloggers and Youtubers, so I thought I would have a look. It was amazing! Each aisle was full of wonderful products at wonderful prices, the shop was set out nicely and everything looked appealing, and the staff were lovely too. I always try to speak French whenever I am in France as I want to practice, mostly my French gets the message across but it isn’t always right. When I was in Sephora, the woman helped me to correct my French and she practiced her English which was great! Anyway, I picked up a few things while I was there that I wanted to share with you.
The first item I picked up was a lip balm, I thought it was cute and it was a bit like an Eos. I kind of have an obsession with Eos lip balms so I wanted to see how it compared to my Eos ones and I can safely say it is very similar. I like this balm as it isn’t greasy and the scent is quite neutral. Also, I like the way that the lid goes on easily I know this may seem weird but sometimes when I use my Eos it takes a few attempts to get the lid on properly. It cost around 6.95 Euros. It was definitely worth the money.
The next thing I bought was a lot of bath gel thingys. They came in cute packaging and I thought they would be good for gifts. In the shop there were many different flavours so I picked up 6 or 7 different ones. The flavours included cotton flower, green tea, mango and more. These little shower gels just looked too cute to ignore, and they were only 95 cents each!! I am yet to try any of these but have high hopes and I imagine they smell great.
My third item is a small Eau de Toilette. The French are known for their perfume and this one is so nice. The scent is mango and it smells really fresh. It is just a small size so I could try it. I personally think this is a good size as it has enough perfume in it to last a little while and it isn’t bulky so it can be tossed into your bag before you go out if you need a little bit of a refresh throughout the day. Also, I think the packaging is really attractive for this perfume as it is a slim cylinder made from glass which gives it more of a professional look. I am pretty sure that when I whip this out at school that everyone will be asking where I bought it from. Also this only cost 4.50 Euros.
Another item I bought from Sephora was a little travel bag with essentials inside. It has deodorant wipes, hand wipes, hand sanitizer, a hairbrush and a travel toothbrush. As I tend to do a lot of travelling I thought this would be great for when I’m on the go in case I want to freshen up a bit. Before I saw this I had never seen deodorant wipes but this is such a good idea. The white travel bag it comes in is simple and convenient. It is also see through so I can see what is inside that bag as soon as I grab it. When I picked it up I misread the price tag and thought it was only 6 Euros 50, however it was 16 Euros 50, which is probably a bit pricey for this really.
The next item I purchased in Sephora was a bath fizzing cube. I actually bought two but I have already used one and it was amazing. It immediately filled the bath the bath with a lovely aroma and made white clouds throughout the water. The flavour I tried was blue lilac. It made my skin feel lovely and soft and the aroma relaxed me and made me feel sleepy and ready for bed. I am really excited to try this coconut flavour too.
My last item wasn’t actually from Sephora but I wanted to include this in my haul. It is the Bioderma. Bioderma is a cleansing water that is really nice to your face it is takes all of your make up off well. I just squirt some on a cotton pad and wipe it all across my face, I even use it on my eyes. My face is really sensitive however this agrees with my skin perfectly well and it doesn’t cause any rashes or lumps. I also really like this as it is cooling on my face. For two 500ml bottles of Bioderma it cost 20 Euros. This seems like a lot but it was definitely worth the money.
I really liked this shop. I might do an online order too in the not so distant future. If there is anything you think I should try next time let me know in the comments I would love to hear what your Sephora favourites are.
