Beauty: highlights from my holiday

My holidays are over ... and although I am missing the wonderful time I had in the South of France, I am very happy to be back and ... blogging!

To summarize a bit, my little french escapade this summer was divided into 2 parts: starting as usual with some quality times with my family and then off to some sightseeing in the Luberon/Ardeche/Drome provencale (I highly recommend to visit these beautiful areas if you don't know them).

...And today, I would love to share with you some of the various B E A U T Y highlights/findings/thoughts I had while relaxing in these beautiful surroundings. Here there are.


  • Thermal water was definitely my best friend those past few weeks. With a heatwave picking up at 40C some days, my Evian/Jonzac/Roche-Posay mists did not let me down (more details here).
  • I protected my skin every single day with the Mychelle Dermaceuticals SPF28 (full review here), another great product that I will probably repurchase.
  • I kept a very simple beauty routine. Cleanser (review soon), sunscreen, facial mask (review soon) and my amazing serum (review here) were my 4 travelling beauty companions.
  • My beauty routine was more an "art de vivre" rather than a serie of skincare steps. I took my time, slowed down my rythm, and kept everything very minimal.
  • My "relaxed" skincare approach worked very well. No over-consumption. Just the basics. At the end, I was on holiday!
  • I went to visit a plant distillery in the area of Sault (Luberon). It was amazing. And I bought some of their local certified organic floral waters. Can't wait to tell you more about it very soon.
  • Organic beauty at an affordable price is very developped in France and easy to access. If you are still doubting, drop me a email and I will direct you to some good brands.
  • (Non organic) micellar waters remain very popular in France. I am planning to try some green ones from Melvita and Jonzac just to get an idea. Will keep you posted.


What are your holiday beauty highlights? any thoughts?
