Gold Medal-Worthy Beauty Products from Around the World
As the world prepares to watch the Summer Olympics, we decided to host our very own beauty-themed games. Behold the winningest products from around the globe
FranceGold: La Roche-Posay Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid, $32.95. From the company that gave us the first "shaka shaka" technology, this sunscreen has emulsifiers which, when shaken, help combine all the ingredients, so that they penetrate the skin faster and leave no residue behind. "I'm a firm believer that physical/mineral sunscreens are best because they don't produce free radicals like chemical sunscreens, and this one is the original," says Dawn Davis, New York City Editor.
Silver: Caudalie Divine Oil, $48. Senior Editor Sarah Carrillo, says, "It smells absolutely amazing (the scent is inspired by the South of France), moisturizes without feeling greasy, and gives my skin a nice glow that's perfect for summer."
Bronze: Laboratoires Dermatologiques d'Uriage Roseliane Cream.* Special Projects Editor Audrey Fine says, "This French cream totally helps calm and soothe rosacea and red skin. It's a miracle worker."
* Not available in the U.S. Great excuse to fly to France.
