After a 36-year wait to return to the World Cup, Peru's Russian adventure will come to an end with their final group game against Australia next week.
But France's early intensity started to fade and Peru should have taken advantage, yet Guerrero shot straight at Lloris on the turn after Christian Cueva found him in the box.
Deschamps got a boost from Giroud and Matuidi in the match against Australia and wisely made the move to start them against Peru.
Les Bleus defender Raphael Varane said: "Some things were not done that well [in the first match]".
With Peru's record scorer Guerrero wasting a late free-kick, Didier Deschamps' squad safely held on to secure their place in the knockout stages.
But it was midfielder Paul Pogba who opened things up for Mbappe's goal.
- Peru are winless in their last eight World Cup matches (D2 L6), scoring just two goals in this run.
The first clear chance of the match was in the 31st minute with Paolo Guerrero's shot blocked by Hugo Lloris on his 100th appearance for France.
