Well, today I turn 36! Hurrah! I am visiting my family today for a few days, and so I hope you enjoy today's post all about Caudalie skincare. I was recently watching a You Tuber, who incidentally has nothing to do with beauty, it was Jenn Tracker from the Disney vlogs, and she was saying how good Caudalie skincare is, but I haven't ever tried it and so I thought I would give it a whirl. I made a few Caudalie purchases which I haven't tried yet, and with them I received this little gift set free, so I thought it was a great opportunity to try a variety of products in one go. I have seen a similar set on the Caudalie website which retails for £25.00 and you can find that here.
The skincare set I received features five travel-sized products, including the Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water, the Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream, the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet. They are all quite generous 'tester' sizes, especially the Beauty Elixir which I believe is one of their cult products.
First up is the Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water (30ml RRP £19.00 for 400ml), and I really want a full-sized version of this as I found it so lovely to use and my skin felt so much healthier too. It it suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive and contains 98% naturally derived ingredients. The formula is infused with soothing chamomile and moisturising grape water, and I found it a very comfortable product to use. It rids the skin of makeup and impurities and has a fresh fragrance of mandarin tree blossom, lemon leaf, watermelon and fresh mint, so it gives you a fruity fresh boost in a morning.
The Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream (5ml) contains 97% natural-origin ingredients and tackles all signs of ageing whilst also promoting an instant glow around what can normally be quite a dull area. The formula is hydrating and it smooths and firms the skin, ensuring any puffiness or dark circles disappear. This normally costs £49.00 for 15ml, so you are getting a third of the regular size and it is a really enjoyable eye cream to use.
We then have the cult Caudalie Beauty Elixir (30ml RRP £12.00), which contains 100% natural-origin ingredients and is full of powerful plant extracts. This is a lovely refreshing spray which can be used to boost the complexion, whilst tightening pores and smoothing fine lines. It can be used as a pre-makeup spray, to set the makeup, to refresh during the day, or simply as a skincare routine addition. The Beauty Elixir has a gorgeous aromatic fragrance to it, but it is not too heavily scented so I don't believe this would aggravate sensitive skin and I have since bought another bottle of this as it is such an amazing product.
We then have the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum (10ml RRP £46.00 for 30ml), which comes in a little glass bottle complete with glass dropper so you can control the amount of product you are dispensing. The first thing I noticed about this serum is that it is in no way shape or form greasy, as I have found some serums quite greasy but this sinks into the skin instantly and leaves no residue behind. The Radiance Serum contains 97% natural-origin ingredients and helps to boost the skin's radiance and even out skin tone, and is apparently great for dark spots. The formula is lightweight and comfortable on the skin and is suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive.
The last of the bunch is the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet (15ml RRP £23.00 for 40ml), which is the only Caudalie product I have tried before. I took a sample size on the flight to Orlando back in December, and I didn't love the formula, only because my skin gets super dry on flights and in cold weather, and I prefer something more creamier, whereas this is a lightweight sorbet. However, because it is so lightweight and refreshing, this is lovely after a day in the sunshine as it is soothing and hydrating, and so I think if you had normal to oily skin, then this would work well for you, but for my skin I personally prefer a creamier moisturiser.
You can find the Caudalie gift set similar to this one online at Caudalie here.
All the Loves,
