There's something about a French pharmacy that sets our hearts aflutter. Maybe it's the aisles and aisles of cult-status products or maybe it's the joy in shopping alongside the most stylish, effortlessly beautiful women in the world (if we stand close enough to them, some of that inherent chicness is bound to rub off on us, right?). Either way, there's a certain je ne sais quoi about the whole experience — and now, The Cut has taught us how to make the most of it.

The site has rounded up a bevy of French pharmacy must-haves, including everything from Bioderma's much-lauded Crealine cleanser to under-the-radar capsules designed to dispense a healthy glow. Comprehensive though it may be, we're thinking this list should have come with a warning: We've suddenly got an uncontrollable urge to hop on the next flight to Paris.
So, click on over to The Cut for a primer in shopping the most famous pharmacies in the world. As for us, we'll be printing out this list and sticking it in our passport — you know, just in case. (The Cut)
