Shiny and New!

On my travels I had to leave behind a toiletry bag due to weight restrictions on my luggage, how is a high maintenance girl to survive with only 15kg?! I decided to leave the things I could buy here so first day dans la supermarche I had a look around the toileteries aisle.

I'm afraid I'm a bit of a shampoo snob and I tend to choose more luxury brands than the high street ones, I left my Label M faves behind. I skipped past the Herbal Essences, had a bad experience with them in the past, and honed in on the Bio section, the organic and natural area.

I was drawn towards this brand, Le Petit Marseillais, they had a large range and I started to notice the brand in other areas. I wanted something similar to what I'd left behind which was Honey and Oat so I chose the Shea Butter and Honey range. I can't quite remember how much they were but the conditioner was under €5 and the shampoo was under €3. 

I was blown away the first day I used them! My hair was gloriously shiny and soft. When I wash my hair here it tends to go very flat and limp and I usually hate it! I think it's something to do with the soft water. The scent is lovely, just like honey. The conditioner is thick and buttery and my hair loves it!

I also needed some shower wash and I would prefer to get something natural or organic so I stuck to Le Petit Marseillais.

I chose this one because of the scent, it smells just like my Elemis bath milk I have at home but for less than €3! Again it's lovely, really creamy and it leaves a lovely scent on my skin. I have fairly sensitive skin and moisturisers and shower products often leave me with red skin, nothing like that here!

I am so impressed with these I'm taking them home, I was just going to leave them here for next time. I'm not sure how natural or organic they are, it's not really mentioned on the bottles much and my French isn't good enough to understand everything on the back. I have had a nosey around their website and they are promoting a natural scene and seem concerned about the planet, all good in my book!



  1. we have this brand in spain and i'm pretty sure they aren't organic nor natural :( but they smell sooo good!

  2. I love La Petit M! A French beauty blogger got me hooked on their shower gels and I'm going to Paris next week to buy some more!
