Discovery: Les Cosmétiques Design Paris
A week or two ago I was invited to discover Les Cosmétiques Design Paris, the in house beauty brand by Carrefour. Unfortunately I chose to be a double idiot that day; the first dose being when I forgot my camera and the second dose being when I didn’t actually take mobile pictures but 101 short videos of the products. Charming, right? Luckily there’s already quite a big assortment of products in stores, even though the big launch is still a month & a half away. I took my time to take some pictures of the things in store I really like. I’m in love with this melon pulp shower gel I bought today, it smells heavenly and it cost me just €1.70. There are eight beauty lines to be discovered: Essentials, Nectar Of Nature, Hydra Science, Age Science, Kéra Science, Age Ultimate, Body Ultimate & Pro’s. My favorite lines are Nectar Of Nature & Kéra Science. I also really like the budget water mist in huge bottles, which is from the Essentials line. And check out the detoxifying shampoo with green tea and clay! Some of the hair products look very promising, I tell you. If you’re up for some French, take a look at the official website for a look into all brands and products, as well as prices. Nothing will ever cost more than €15.00, by the way. Even the magic gold jar of regeneration serum that I’ve been eyeballing at the event. Couldn’t find it in stores yet, so I’ll be posting about that pot of gold later on. I really love luxury brands, but I love a good beauty bargain just as much. All products from all lines will be available from November on in all Carrefour branches. During the launch you’ll be able to take your third product home for free, so I know when I’ll be stacking up on shower gels! Enjoy the pictures (made with my slowly dying mobile phone).
