This Chic New High-Street Beauty Collection Is Set to Be a French-Girl Fave

There are very few high-street shops that manage to embody French-girl style as perfectly and effortlessly as Sézane. Over the years, the brand’s pretty pastel knits, laid-back crochet and iconic boxy shirts have come to epitomise French-girl style, and frankly, I couldn’t be more on-board with the whole aesthetic. It’s laid-back, easy and takes chic to a whole new level. However, with that being said, I was always aware that the brand was missing a pretty major trick. 

While I admit that French-girl style really is an art form, if you ask me, it’s the French girl’s approach to beauty that inspires me the most every day. For a brand like Sézane, which embodies all of the chicest, most stylish things about the French way of life, to not have a beauty offering always upset me a little. For too long I have been itching to discover the secret behind the effortless French-girl glow, and I have always had an inkling that Sézane could be the brand to hold the answers.

And now, finally, my wish has been granted. As pared-back and simple as one might expect, Sézane’s new beauty offering consists of bath, body and fragrance treats that look just as chic as they smell and feel. From an oily lip balm that keeps lips soft and supple all day long to a fresh, floral perfume that would impress even the hardest-to-please of noses, I’ve snapped up just about every beauty product Sézane has to offer. And believe me when I say they're all totally dreamy. Ready to see the levels of chicness we’re dealing with here? Keep scrolling to discover the new, natural beauty collection.
