Carole Bouquet is another beautiful face.
As wonderful as travelling is there is nothing quite like your own bed to come home to. My brain is still foggy from time change and my thoughts not flowing as rapidly as I would like. With a few of my regular routines in place, I’m hopeful I will start making more sense soon.
Two weeks in the snow plays havoc on the skin.
I wanted to mention a new little something I found and I need to regress a few months and fill you in.
I was reading an article, just before Christmas and it mentioned one of the biggest selling beauty products in France was a little tube from La Roche-Posay. As an idea for a fun stocking filler I popped some in our guests Christmas parcel; both men and women. I think the local pharmacies thought I was mad requesting multiples but they reinforced how fabulous this little gem of a cream was and that it was a best seller.
Of course I kept a tube for myself.
I used this soothing repair balm on my hands over the holidays and thought it was good; no residual leftover and fragrance free are winning qualities for me. It wasn’t until I came home this past weekend from the ski trip, with torn cuticles around my nails from doing up and un-doing my ski boots, that I understood how wonderful this cream is. There is nothing worse than torn cuticles and I don’t find cutting them an ideal solution. For me, it only results in more tearing and trouble around the edges.
I used this La Roche-Posay for the last two nights and in terms of repair and soothing it is nothing short of a miracle. My hands, while still a wreck, are feeling so much better and the cuticles are much less inflamed. I can’t quite believe the difference and I am thinking I should be using this wonder all over. I wished I had used it when I was away, my hands might not be such terrible state.
It’s the perfect gift or souvenir if you are travelling to France soon. Don’t forget, I think you will love it, xv.
