Welcome to Currently Trending, a special series where we highlight the products people can’t get enough of right now. Whether it’s blowing up on social media or selling nonstop on Rank & Style, this is where you'll find it.

From their chic wardrobe basics and perfectly undone waves to their less-is-more makeup looks, there's an undeniable allure about the beauty and style choices of French women. But perhaps the one thing that's most swoon-worthy—as well as attainable—is their skincare products. The beauty industry has long obsessed over the idea of what French women put on their faces, and it's easy to see why. French skincare is all about low-maintenance, results-driven formulas with fewer, gentler ingredients, and many of them can be found for an affordable price at one of the country's iconic drugstores (or online, for us Americans).

Over the years, a number of French beauty products have gained cult status—think Bioderma's $10 micellar water and Nuxe's indulgent multi-use body oil. Here to break them down for you, we've rounded up a list of the 10 most beloved French skincare products out there. Whether you want to fill some gaps in your routine or simply see what the hype is about, start here—the 10 options that follow definitely won't disappoint.
