Pharmacy Finds

The pharmacy is a one stop shop for all your summer needs, from antihistamines to SPF and beyond. The beauty aisles in pharmacies are some of my moist visited be it in town or online. I feel justified in allocating a little budget each month to treat myself to some of the skincare, supplements, and haircare available. The first range I would like to mention is Eucerin which has been a skin pioneer for over 130 years. Their best sellers are their moisturisers but the standout products for me are:

Hyaluron-Filler Night Peeling & Serum : €43.00,  combines two powerful formulas for multiple anti-ageing benefits: This works on a double pump system and offers a  refined skin texture and radiance: The creamy emulsion contains an effective AHA Complex and Glycine Saponin. AHAs exfoliate skin while Glycine Saponin supports the production of Hyaluronic Acid in the dermal layer where deeper wrinkles originate. Moisturisation and wrinkle-filling: The gel combines concentrated high and low molecular Hyaluronic Acid. High molecular Hyaluronic Acid works to smooth the external layers of skin while the low molecular Hyaluronic Acid penetrates further into the epidermal layers where deeper wrinkles originate. This is suitable for all skin types. 

Hyaluron-Filler Vitamin C Booster – 1 x 8ml RRSP: €23.00 / 3 x 8ml RRSP: €51.00. The Vitamin C Booster strengthens the skin while plumping up wrinkles for a fresh and more radiant look, with noticeable improvements after just seven days of daily use. The clinical, dermatological and consumer studies prove exceptionally good efficacy and skin tolerability. From a personal perspective I cannot say enough good things about the effect this has on my skin. I also think it would be a great one to do prior to an occasion or event. 

Avène Thermal Spring Water turns thirty this month. It is naturally soothing, calming and softening, and is rich in components particularly recommended for the most sensitive skin. The Thermal Water Spray is the core ingredient in each Avène product. This wonderful mist has endless uses! Multi-use product: It is a handbag her it hydrates after exercising or whilst travelling. On the dresser it tones after cleansing/make-up removal.  It can help reduce redness and minimises itching caused by dryness. It helps to calm the skin after cosmetic procedures. Brilliant for anyone doing a course of micro-needling or chemical peels. It cools sunburnt skin and can use on the skin after shaving or hair removal.

Swedish Nutra Vitamin C & D3 €17.99 is a great tasting supplement that plays a particularly important role in boosting your immune system using vital vitamins.  Vitamin C is needed to reduce tiredness and fighting the symptoms of fatigue.  Vitamin C is commonly known as the sunshine vitamin and is most known for its mood-boosting properties.  Zinc is also necessary for boosting our immune system as it produces white blood cells and is crucial all year round in helping to keep viruses and flu at bay.  It comes in a great-tasting orange flavour making it super easy to take. It has also got multiple skin benefits and can be implemented into your current regimen.
