I’ll take the opportunity of a 2 day trip to London to bring back new products, that are not yet available in France, and to see long time friends.
Pour préparer mon voyage et trouver les dernières nouveautés, j’ai passé un temps considérable sur la toile et ai interrogé plusieurs bloggeuses beauté londoniennes, qui ont bien voulu dévoiler leurs secrets. Je vous présente donc 5 bloggeuses anglaises au profil assez différent, qui ont un nombre impressionnant de fans.
To get ready for this trip and find my way amidst beauty corners, I’ve spent time on the web and asked beauty bloggers living in London to help and share their secrets. Let me introduce you 5 differents English bloggers, who has their own style of talking beauty and a pretty impressive « fan club ».
Who are u??? BritishBeautyBlogger, I am a freelance beauty writer and editor so can get the inside scoop on beauty news thanks to my job. My blog is about insider news, beauty reviews, first looks at upcoming ranges and also the occasional angry post about the beauty industry! I speak my mind at all times and am happy to have made new friends from all over the world through blogging.
Which product would you recommend to buy in London? I suggest you look at Brit brands such as Cowshed – lovely shower gels and body moisturisers (there is a Cowshed store off Carnaby Street), Mitchell & Peach (luxury lavender body/bath range available in Fenwick) and Emma Hardie skincare range – absolutely amazing (available in Space NK).
Your favorite French beauty product ? Bioderma Crionline …it’s a great gentle cleanser that gets the skin really, really clean no matter how much make up you need to take off!

Who are u??? I’m known as the London Darling. My blog Pretty Stylish London is a yummy, sweet cupcake of a blog, with plenty of fashion, a dollop of beauty and a sprinkling of dates for your diary.
Which product would you recommend to buy in London? I’d recommend Berkley Square London. They do some great toiletries with vintage fashion themes My fave being the Fig & Cherry Shea Butter Soap.

Who are u??? My nom de plume is Grace London, from my childhood nickname (I was awkward, my brother is mean) and the place where I work (and shop.)
I tend to like the smaller, independant brands, and prefer to use skincare that is paraben/mineral oil-free, so those are the types of brands that I write about.Which product would you recommend to buy in London? Suqqu foundation (stocked in Selfridges) – this foundation is loved by makeup artists for giving good coverage with a natural skin-but-better finish. If you are looking for a specifically English line, then I’d recommend Emma Hardie cleanser (you can find it in Space NK.) This is a balm cleanser that contains Moringa seed to purify. It feels and smells lovely, and leaves the skin soft and not stripped of moisture.
Your favorite French beauty product ? Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Murano, one of my favourite eyeshadow palettes for a sophisticated green eye look. I’m very much looking forward to getting Melvita products over here too.
Who are u??? My names Michelle Alias Beauty and the Blog23 , am 23 years of age
I started my blog late July of 2009. I created it because I am a self confessed beauty addict. My blog is about anything to do with beauty,hair,makeup and consists of loads of reviews.
Which product would you recommend to buy in London? I would recommend No7 Skin Illuminator,I use the peach one but it also comes in pink.Its great for illuminating the skin and giving you that fresh faced glow,I use it to highlight my cheek bones and my brow bone,and on occasion mix it with my foundation.Its available in boots stores and retails for £10.50,It sounds expensive but its worth it,and a little goes a long way.Heres the link so you know what your looking for http://www.boots.com/en/No7-Skin-Illuminator_851146/
Your favorite French beauty product ? Bourjois Bronzer in 52. It looks just like chocolate, smells yummy and the colour is beautiful.
Who are u??? Still only a few weeks old, SO FAR, SO CHIC is a blog I created to showcase my writing, while allowing me to indulge my love of all things fashion and beauty related. My priority is honesty: every entry reflects my personal feelings on a subject, product or person. I only recommend things that I love. All entries also come served with a strong dose of acerbic wit!
Which product would you recommend to buy in London? A cult brand in the UK, Liz Earle, focuses on pure, natural ingredients (some of their suppliers are French!), which are free from mineral oils and animal derivatives. Their Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is a must-have. The creamy lotion gently cleanses and removes makeup, while the muslin cloth exfoliates and stimulates skin. Improves skin clarity and texture in a matter of days. The company’s flagship store is at 38-39 Duke of York Square, King’s Road, SW3 4LY. The range is also available at John Lewis (there’s one on Oxford Street).
If chiconomics are important to you, Boots pharmacy offers a bargain makeup range called ‘17’. One of my go-to products is the 17 Soft Liner Eye Pen. Basically a felt-tip pen for eyes, it makes applying liquid liner quick and simple. Much easier than ‘pen-pot’ liners with their useless, whispy brush applicators. It’s just as good as other expensive pen liners, and costing just £3.99, you won’t mind when it inevitably dries out (as all felt-tips do!).
If you’d prefer I name a skincare product, it’s A-DERMA Creme de Soin – a moisturiser that works wonders on dry or irritated skin. It soothes and reduces that tight feeling skin can get during cold weather and provides a smooth base for makeup.
