You may have heard the news the past week that Paris has been experiencing a canicule.
That’s French for HEATWAVE. So, we’ve all had more reason than normal to complain in true
Parisian fashion with temperatures hovering around 100 degrees! The French are known for
many things but air conditioning simply isn’t one of them so even indoors it’s hard to find solace.
Outdoors it feels like an oven, hot and humid, and when I’m forced to brave the streets for
errands or shoots at the moment, I’m running for shade. They say the heat will break soon but in
the meantime we’re all finding little tricks to stay cool!
For me, washing my face when I get home from the mean hot streets has been a saving grace!
A splash of cold water to cool off is just what the doctor ordered. With my new Miel-en-Mousse
foaming cleanser it’s really been a treat so I really take my time at the sink.
This new foaming face cleanser from Lancôme is made with acacia honey encapsulated in
water. The transformative 2-in-1 formula is created to dissolve makeup, oil, and other impurities,
which feels especially nice after a hot sticky summer day. It goes on thick and decadent like
honey and slowly melts into a rich velvety mousse once emulsified with water, washing away
any remaining residues and leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft. It’s a gentle cleanser so
perfect for dry or sensitive skin.
For honey lovers this cleanser is a must! Acacia honey comes from the nectar of tree flowers,
and has amazing beneficial properties for skin, including being antibacterial and having a hefty
serving of skin-saving antioxidants. It’s also great for a complexion boost as it’s extremely
moisturizing and soothing, helping you get a nice glow. It’s even considered clarifying as it
helps to open pores, making them easier to clean. Not to mention its smells wonderful, like a
sweet little treat for your skin. And trust me, in this Parisian summer Miel-en-Mousse really is!
