Bahhhhh I'm officially a sheep.
I followed the hype and bought the Caudalie Beauty Elixir 30ml. I never feel the need to follow everyone else, I like being an individual with my own thoughts and my own original quirkiness. But I caved and I completely blame YouTube. After watching a million (it wasn't actually a million but it felt like it) YouTube Video were Guru's were talking about their love for this product I just had to check it out and see what all the hype was about.
I went on my merry way and pop over to the Feel Unique website, I browsed for ages before I actually got to the Caudalie section. As always I was a bit confused on what I was actually buying but I finally found it and brought the 30ml Bottle. As this was my first time buying the "hype" product I thought I would start small.
Once I got it through in the post I kind of forgotten about it and moved on to a new obsession (Essie nail polishes, THEY ARE AMAZEBALLS). I tried it out as soon as I ripped open the box. I hated the smell, but I liked that my skin felt really refreshed and made my make-up look almost new after an 8-hour shift in an air-con office. I did some more research on how to get the most out of this Beauty Elixir, finally found a way I wanted to use it. I have been using the product for the last 4 weeks as part of my skincare routine and I've been loving it.
I use it after cleansing in the morning, just before I put on my moisturiser (Simple Kind to Skin Light Moisturiser) which actually works quite well with the Beauty Elixir. I also spray it on the face once I have completed my makeup. I feel that my makeup does stay on longer with this, the few times I have forgotten to spray my face I noticed my make-up slipping from my face after a few hours in the office. I also tend to spray my face twice during the day, as I work in an air-con tight office, my face often dries out and looks well... horrendous! When I spray it on my face during the day it feels that it's giving my dry face a big massive wet kiss. My skin feels more awake and luminance after just one spray. I also use it before I put on my night moisturiser.
Since using this product I have noticed an improvement on my skin, I am a smoker so I tend to notice if something works on my skin straight away. My skin feels tighter and cleaner, my make-up glides on without fuss and I'm even getting to like the smell. The smell is like a Rosewater, Mint and Orange cocktail. I would recommend this anyone who needs that little pick me up during a long day in the office. Your skin will thank you for it.
I'm hoping to try out some more Caudalie products, I'm liking the look of the moisturisers. I'll keep you posted if I do.
