A post on Lipglossiping about Hei Poa Monoi Oil got me thinking about the products that I love to stockpile when I'm away. Even though you can probably source most of them here, products seem all the more alluring when you discover them abroad. I remember visiting virtually every pharmacy in Milan with a fashion ed colleague, intent on tracking down a new RoC retinol product. When she found out Boots stocked it, she promptly lost interest. In Italy, I look for Marvis toothpaste, particularly the pink one, (Liberty sell it now, but at the inflated price of £5.95), I figure if my other half is always going to leave the toothpaste out, then it may as well be in a lovely-to-look-at tube. In New York, I go for the Duane Reade drugstore staples, like the biggest size of Cetaphil, a super-mild rinse-off cleanser. Hei Poa, the gorgeously-scented multi-purpose oil (which I love mainly for the packaging!) you find in French department stores and pharmacies, as well as online here. I also like Le Petit Marseillais liquid soap. Do you pick up products abroad, or stick to online shopping instead?
