If you’re into French pharmacy–or active in the Reddit skincare community–, then SVR skincare products are no strangers to you. Previously, the brand only manufactured extremely medicalized products for skin issues. However, a few years ago the brand shifted and started making a lot of new and interesting stuff. Nowadays you can’t go through a “best of” list of European sunscreens without coming across one or two SVR options. Besides, the products for skin conditions are still very much relevant and useful for those who need them. All in all, SVR is a true French pharmacy skincare brand: suitable for those with skin conditions while at the same time being super modern.
