Hello everybody! I hope you are all having an amazing weekend! Mine is bound to be a very special one but I will be sharing it with you on a different post… Because this one is all about my newly discovered French beauty love, Caudalie.
Caudalie and Me
I had heard of Caudalie before but I had never tried any of their products. It was only when I started looking for a new moisturising cream that I came across all the amazing reviews for the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet. And as it happens, I got intrigued and put it on my skincare wishlist. I went online, started reading about all the amazing vine-based ingredients extracted from organic grapes that are used in the Caudalie products and their benefits for the skin and placed my first order!
As I said, this is the product that led me to Caudalie. Its cream-to-gel formula is what attracted me the most. And rightly so. I love the cool, refreshing sensation that it gives to my skin first thing in the morning. Its lightweight texture gets instantly absorbed, leaving behind a hydrating glow. And on the days that I feel that my skin is very dry and irritated, I can feel the soothing effect almost immediately. Its main active ingredients include moisturising organic grape water, protective Vinolevure®, aqua-regulator complex, soothing chamomile and anti-oxidant grape Polyphenols.
While exploring the Caudalie website I came across these super cute French Kiss lip balms. And I have a confession to make… I added one to my basket just because their packaging was so, very beautiful! Luckily the product quality was as rewarding as the packaging! This lip balm is so moisturising on the lips, has a delicious vanilla scent and leaves a beautiful soft pink tint on the lips making them ultra-kissable. This is a product that won’t leave my bag these following months as the cold has never been gentle to my lips. Its hydrating ingredients include Aloe Vera extract, beeswax, Polyphenols and castor and sunflower oil.
This is another Caudalie product with great reviews. I really wanted to try it but as I am very particular with scents-some can give me strong headaches- I ordered the 15ml travel size. I shouldn’t have worried…. This oil’s name is not a coincidence; its smell is really divine, flowery and earthy! It is multi-use, you can use it on the body, hair, nails, in the bath or as a massage oil but I am using it mainly as a body oil. A small quantity goes a long way and it feels so luxurious on the skin! It is dry rather than sticky which I love and gets absorbed by the skin instantly. Its formula contains a blend of oils (grape, hibiscus, sesame and argan) as well as anti-oxidant Polyphenols which makes it really moisturising. This will make a great Christmas gift and it’s on my list already!
Since I was so happy with my first order I have already created my wishlist for the next one! Here’s what I have my eyes on:
There are few things that I like as much as a Spa day full of delicious, relaxing treatments! But as I can’t have a Spa day everyday I try to replicate the experience at home using the right beauty products.
This beautiful body set looks like it would be the perfect fit for the role! It comes in a beautiful wooden barrel and it contains 2 amazing-sounding products:
Crushed Cabernet Scrub (150g ) – One of the signature Caudalie Spa Vinothérapie® treatments, this scrub is enriched with grape seeds and six essential oils to leave the skin smooth, soft and silky.
Vine Body Butter (225ml) – Rich in grape and shea butters to sooth dry, tight-feeling skin.
Although I am currently enjoying using my Kiehl’s Cream Eye Treatment with Avocado, I am always in the look for the next great eye skincare product as I have a very sensitive skin around my eyes. And this one sounds like one to try! It contains and promises to visibly alleviate dark circles and smooth the eye and lip contours and reduce crows feet wrinkles by 24%.
The festive period is well and truly here! And beauty Christmas Crackers are one of the season’s most favourite things! This Christmas Cracker set contains:
– Thé des Vignes Fresh Fragrance (10ml)
– Thé des Vignes Shower Gel (30ml)
– Thé des Vignes Nourishing Body Lotion (30ml)
All products are infused with the Caudalie signature Thé des Vignes fragrance, a sensual blend of white musk, neroli flower, jasmine and ginger. Santa…. I’ve been good this year!
