If you are familiar with Parisian skincare products, you must have heard of Caudalie and their award winning, cult favourite – Caudalie Eau de Beaute aka Beauty Elixir. Celebrities all over swear by this from Victoria Beckham, Katy Perry, Jennifer Aniston and Madonna to the very inspirational Arissa from Carte Blanche.
There are so many use with this beauty elixir, you can use it as a toner, a refreshing mist and even over the top of your make up for that ‘glowy’ finish. The story behind this elixir is that the original formula was created for Queen Isabelle of Hungary as an elixir of youth. This half-toner, half-serum mist is filled with essential oils and rare plants, giving an instant boost to the complexion to smooth out lines, pores minimized and the skin is left looking radiant. It also helps to boost the effectiveness of moisturizer applied after using the elixir.
Whilst travelling to Paris earlier this year, I knew I had to pick up a bottle or two. The packaging comes in glass bottle and all the descriptions are in french so I don’t really know what are the ingredients. That being said, I love the refreshing scent that works as an instant pick me up. Be sure to shake this prior to using for an even application.
My favourite method of using this is over clean face in the morning and as a finish step post make up routine to help lock in everything and keep skin hydrated on the go. While I didn’t see any drastic change to my skin but I did like how my skin feel after a full face mist and how my make up doesn’t appear cakey during the day.
In terms of purchasing this, I am sure a little internet research will point you to the right direction.
