Review: Caudalie Beauty Elixir

Wednesday, June 26, 2013
I put off buying this product for such a long time but I did eventually buy it and...I LOVE it! I used this up fully a couple of weeks ago and I am going to put it in a empties blog post but this product is so good it had to have a post dedicated to it.
Firstly, what is this product? It is a glorified water spray, like the Avene and Vichy sprays. They are multipurpose, designed to be used as a refreshing facial water spray, a toner and a makeup setting spray. I use it for all three purposes and it is great at all three.
Refreshing water spray: I took this product on holiday with me last year and it was really useful. We went on a cruise holiday with Royal Caribbean and we went to Italy, Corsica, Sardinia and Spain - so it was quite hot. This product came in so useful on holiday, it has an instant cooling effect on the skin which lasts for a while which was great. It is great for refreshing the skin!
Toner: I also use it as a toner, but sparingly, as it is fairly expensive. I spray it onto a cotton pad and then sweep it over the face and neck. It again has an instant cooling effect and the skin just feels clean and refreshed but not dry or irritated which is fantastic!
Makeup setting spray: This product works really well as a makeup setting spray - it refreshed old makeup and it is great as a final setting spray to stop makeup looking caky or powdery. It also makes the skin glowing and radiant - I don't know how it makes my skin look so radiant (but not shiny or oily) - it is amazing!
Overall, it is an expensive product but it works so well, the packaging is great, it doesn't irritate my dry/sensitive skin and it makes my skin look great! Also because it is multipurpose I can justify the price tag - I am definitely going to repurchase soon! x

  6. Ugh I want this product SO bad. I have seen it on so many blogs and in so many YouTube videos.
    I love how you can just take it to go in your purse and use it to refresh during the day. It's a bummer that it's expensive though :/

    So jealous of your cruise holiday....you went to so many amazing places!! Must have been wonderful!

    1. I think it is worth the price especially as a makeup setting spray - it makes my skin look glowy and stops my makeup from looking caky :) x

  10. I tend to only use this to refresh my skin on hot and sticky days, but it's definitely something worth having in your stash! The spray is perfect, one press and my entire face is covered! xx
