Caudalie Beauty Elixir

Monday, August 26, 2013


This post has been a long time coming, as this famous facial spritz by Caudalie is one of my most loved products of all time. The Beauty Elixir, which claims to "smooth features, tighten pours and provide an instant burst of radiance to the complexion", has become a cult product, capturing hearts all over the world and becoming a staple in most beauty lovers collections. Makeup artists, celebrities and skincare enthusiasts alike swear by this stuff, while others consider it to simply be an overpriced bottle of water. Here's why I'm firmly in the lovers camp...

The smell is amazing. It's a 'love it or hate it' kinda smell, but I most definitely love it. It's a menthol-scented, herby concoction of organic balm mint, rosemary and rose; and is both refreshing and calming at the same time. Spritzing this throughout the day livens up my skin and makes me feel much more awake and revitalised. It can be used in several different ways - as part of your skincare routine as a toner, to set makeup or simply sprayed onto the face throughout the day. I've used this stuff for well over a year now and nothing brightens or calms my skin like it. Sure, there are cheaper facial sprays out there (Beauty Elixir comes in at around £10 for the 30ml bottle pictured, and over £30 for the full 100ml), but, for me, there's no other product that even comes close to the effectiveness of this stuff. To top it all off, it's completely free of parabens and other baddies, and cruelty free. What's not to love?

  4. i have a few hydrating toners/facial mists including the 30ml beauty elixir and i have to agree with you on this, it's such a lovely product. because i have a few of them and because the caudalie one is quite pricey i generally only use it to help clear up my skin if i've been having any issues with it and i use my other toners day to day but i'll definitely be repurchasing this one when it runs out.

  8. I still haven't tried this yet because I'm just not sure about the smell. I find it a little too overwhelming sometimes but I still keep staring at it in stores. I might just have to take the plunge and buy it to finally decide for myself.
