You Don't Have To Fly To France For Fancy Skin Care Anymore

You know the feeling when you compliment someone's chic embroidered jacket only to have them purr, "thanks, it's vintage?" I mean, great for you, but I was sort of hoping you would say Zara so I could run down the street and get one, too. And the same holds true for beauty products. I'm glad you had a wonderful time in Seoul hoarding sheet masks and the body oil that you found in a tiny Parisian boutique sounds absolutely lovely — but it's not as exciting for the rest of us who can't find it at CVS.
But that's all starting to change. Those products you used to have to travel overseas for? They're arriving in the U.S. in record numbers. In fact, walk into any French drugstore and you'll notice it looks a lot like an American one these days. Check out our favorite recent international imports, ahead.

Thank the TSA gods for this one. Anyone who's been to France has likely seen Le Petit Marseillais body wash on drugstore shelves... and has probably been tempted to fuck the overweight luggage rules and check a few bottles in their bag home. According to the brand, LPM is the #1 body wash brand in France and it's quickly become our beauty director's #1, too. The silky lather is gentle — and honestly just smells ridiculously good.
