Caudalie Beauty Elixir

Caudalie were always a brand that I’d heard of but never thought I’d ever be able to afford. However, in recent years, I’ve started to approach my skincare differently. I’ve started to realise that maybe it could be worthwhile spending out now in order to reap the benefits later. 

Caudalie favour natural and environmentally active ingredients, and have such an amazing ethic towards the environment. As a sufferer of dry and sensitive skin, I will always be drawn to a more organic product, knowing it’ll be so much more gentle.

On to the product! Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir is a beauty staple in the bags of many make-up artists, models and celebrities. It’s an anti-dull complexion mist, containing grape, orange blossom, rose, balm mint and rosemary.  The Elixir is inspired by the “Elixir of Youth” used by Queen Elizabeth of Hungary. Beauty Elixir claims to smooth features, tighten pores and give the complexion an instant boost of radiance. Who wouldn’t want to try that?

Just shake the bottle and spray the product onto the face before moisturiser or at any time of day if you feel your complexion needs a bit of a boost.

The first thing I noticed on using the product was the smell! I’d say the mint and lavender are the strongest notes, and it may not be for some but I instantly felt refreshed. I’ve been using this for around a week or two now and my skin feels more toned, and a thousand times more radiant. My foundation is applying much smoother and I’m using less (thank goodness, it cost me a fortune!)  Although I am drinking a lot more recently, I refuse to believe it could do so much for my skin and I’m sure Beauty Elixir has helped it along the way. I’ll be using this to the very last drop!

An extra plus is the beautiful limited edition bottle, designed by L'Wren Scott. It has pride of place on my desk. I was lucky enough to be sent this to try out but if you want to try it, Beauty Elixir retails at £32.00 for a 100ml bottle or £11.50 for 30ml, a perfect stocking filler! 

What do you think? Do you think it's worth splashing out for quality?

  3. I've wanted to try this for forever! I've only heard good things about it, plus my skin is quite sensitive so it would probably benefit.
    I might have to get it as a little stocking filler for myself ;)
