The world is still infatuated by French drugstore beauty brands, but frankly, I've moved on. While I'll never let go of my beloved Crealine or Nuxe's honey-flavoured lip balm, lately I've switched focus. Blame it on pregnancy, but right now I'm all about natural brands that also happen to be luxe. The French excel at this combo, across everything from skincare to makeup, so I haven't had to shift things too far. Happily, I've discovered some new brands to obsess over.

A mouth-watering mix of coffee, sugar and vanilla bean, this vegan body scrub makes short work of dry skin. I'll use it weekly for silky-smooth limbs all autumn.
Cruelty- and gluten-free, and ecocert certified, this moisturising lip tint delivers on colour and shine. The burgundy shade is perfect for pepping up dull skin.
I'm adding this concentrated serum (it contains camellia seed oil—said to be behind many a geisha's luminous skin), to my night moisturiser for a brighter complexion.
This bronzer has serious skincare benefits—it's infused with anti-ageing apricot oil, and soothing chamomile extract. Plus, it's great for fairer skin types. (Like me.)
