Love buying beauty products to take back home? Here are the ones to avoid!

A few years ago I bought some hand cream in Monoprix and liked it so much I bought a few to take home. When I was back in Paris last week I went back to Monoprix and bought a few more. Le Petit Olivier. Doesn't make me beautiful but does make my hands feel good when they get dry in the winter.

Not on the list linked in this article although other Le Petit Olivier products are there. This is not something sold in stores where I live.

The packaging is a little different and I think it might be a little different inside too. I will be testing it on one human. And possibly on a couple of other humans if I decide to give some away.

Not much use if you're allergic to a natural ingredient like lanolin

But good to see that my favorite brand La Roche Posay doesn't feature very much on the list.
