HOW TO BE PARISIAN
I recently discovered this typical Instagram book „how to be Parisian“ in a friends book shelf and since I’ve always wondered what it is about I borrowed and read it. I have to admit some points are kind of funny and good to keep in mind! So I thought I would give you a little summary of the „Parisian Beauty Rules“
«Beauty in France is epidermal – nobody cares that much about make-up, it’s what’s underneath that matters.»
«Skin should look natural. Freckles can appear in spring… sometimes your cheekbones blush when you lie, and your whole face flushes when you are intimidated.»
«Never go to bed without taking off your make-up, so you fall asleep not smelling like the party. Yes you climb into bed more tired for this care. But that’s the price we pay to save our skin.»
«A few strokes of mascara – be generous on your top and bottom lashes, to accentuate your look and disguise any bags under your eyes.»
I´ve been testing some of the Codage Paris Signature Products which are definitely approved by Parisian girls and their love for naturality! Codage Paris was created by brother and sister Julien & Amandine Azencott. Each product is made to target specific skincare needs. From intense moisturising to soothing & anti-redness, there is a product for everyone. What I love most about Codage Paris is that the products smell amazing and by amazing I mean, they don’t smell perfumed and artificial, but just like fresh air! What I also love is, that you can create your own special serum by answering a questionnaire online. A serum will be created for you according to your results and it will be sent to you in a beautiful customized monogrammed bottle. The best news is, you don’t have to travel to France to pick Codage Paris Products up, because you get them exclusively at Marionnaud!
Lets get into details of the products I’ve been testing so far:
The EAU MICELLAIRE cleanses, removes makeup, purifies and moisturizes the skin all at once. It’s not aggressive at all and doesn’t dry out your skin however still gives a cleansed feeling. SERUM N°01 is a super intense moisturizer for dry and dehydrated skin. At the beginning it feels like it would never soak in because it’s so rich but after a little while my skin never felt softer.
The CREME GOMMANTE (Scrubbing Cream) is a rich and soothing emulsion made from fine rice particles. It’s made even for the most sensitive skin types. Your skin feels soft and clean after using it!
The CRÈME DE JOUR is an emulsion whose creamy texture is especially formulated to moisturize and protect the skin throughout the day. It literally feels like silk on my skin, I can really recommend this product!
The DAY FLUID is a fine and light emulsion specially formulated for oily skin. Since my skin is not really oily at the moment this Fluid didn’t feel as good as the Creme de Jour for me, but I am sure it works perfect for oily skin!
I hope you liked my little review and the Parisian Beauty Rules! I am currently in Marokko taking tons of pictures, can’t wait to share them with you guys!
