International Finds: Beauty Products from Around the World

Our community of Birchbloggers is a vibrant bunch of beauty-loving ladies from all corners of the blogosphere. This month we’re featuring New York City-based sisters Valerie and Michelle Bar, the dynamic duo behind Pass the Rouge.

Whenever we’re traveling abroad, we love to poke our heads into pharmacies and beauty shops in hopes of discovering local products. Thanks to our curiosity, we've discovered life-changing items from names like Melvita, Nuxe, and Korres. From a French skin-saver to the Korean secret to beauty sleep, here are some of our favorite international beauty finds:

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentre

Ever since we picked this up on a trip to Paris, it has been a staple in our winter skin care regimen. During the warmer months this product can be a bit too heavy, but it’s the perfect fit for harsh, cold-weather months.

Laniege Firming Sleeping Pack

A friend got this product for us while on a trip to Korea, and it’s a dream—pun intended! Enriched with antioxidants, this treatment penetrates deep into skin for quick results—all while you're sleeping. Wake up to bright, hydrated, plump skin!

Missha Perfect Eyebrow Styler

This is another Korean product we love. This eyebrow pencil is great for people who want a stronger brow—but not too bold. Since the pigment is extremely buildable, you can apply a small amount at a time.

Phyto Secret De Nuit

This product took my damaged, color-treated hair and made it healthy and radiant! Just apply this cream to wet or dry hair in the evening before bed. In the morning, your hair will feel softer and hydrated—it’s that simple! You can keep the product in your hair the next day for added repair.

Bioderma Cleansing Water

Last but not least, the Holy Grail of beauty: Bioderma! Since this hyped French cleansing water is hard to find, we made sure to stock up on our last trip to France. Bioderma can take off all of your makeup—even stubborn waterproof formulas. And if you have sensitive skin (or just want a break from your normal face wash), you can use it as your daily facial cleanser.
