Caudalie Beauty Elixir

March 30, 2014
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mummy’s out there! I’m just heading out for a lovely carvery with my Mum and the fam, which is rather exciting for me. I’m hoping the weather will hold out for me so i can take photo’s for some exciting posts coming up this week! 

Today’s post is one of those beauty reviews i always promise but never deliver. I’m going to be talking about Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir which I’ve owned for about six months and only JUST used it! I bought this in the oh-so-famous Rue De Four, French Pharmacie in Paris which Lisa Eldridge mentioned in one of her video’s. It is supposed to be a secret hotspot but everyone and their mother knows about this little gem. I have the 30ml bottle which was around €8 but can be bought from Feel Unique here for £10.95 (there is also 10% with the code ‘UK10′ at the moment’). Long story short, I managed to loose it in a Disneyland bag somewhere, only to be discovered last week! 

My skin’s not been at it’s best recently, which might actually have something to do with the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, it seems to be drying me out! My skin’s become quite dry especially in the T-Zone area, so after finding this i thought i would give it a go and after a week I’ve noticed such a difference. It’s really helped, even after the first usage i noticed. I sprayed this on my face before applying make-up and later on in the day if i need a touch up. When applying, the mist isn’t too heavy which is amazing and there’s no liquid running down your face! The only thing that shocked me when i tried it was the smell, it’s quite a strong tea tree/minty smell which i was not expecting and I’m not overly keen on it! But overall, This product has done wonders for me so i can put up with the smell! Oh, this also is a beauty must-have for Victoria Beckham so if it’s good enough for her it must be good!

Has anyone else tried this? What did you think?

XOXO

    Dayum, I can't believe I haven't tried this yet! Well, I can really – I keep saying to myself that I need to use up all similar products I own first and then I can buy 1 new thing eg THIS – but I've got so much crap at home that it will never happen. *sigh* haha x

    This looks like a really nice product, but the smell could be enough to put me off, I'm not sure I want to go round smelling of tea tree all day!

    S xo.

  4. I love this product – it's wonderful at hydrating the skin throughout the day. I also really like the aromatic and herbal scent, but I completely understand that it might not be for everyone :o) Xx

    I really enjoy this product, mainly because it's nice and refreshing, but I don't know if it really does much for my skin! It is lovely for setting make-up though, and as you say, if it's good enough for VB…

    I've not tried anything from Caudalie yet but I might have a look into this, the skin on my nose has been peeling for months now and nothing I seem to do helps :/ Maybe this is just what I'm looking for! x
