Caudalie is such a luxurious brand. Everything they have has such a great scent and makes you feel like a million bucks when you use it.
When it comes to skincare, I like things that make my skin feel fresh and clean – and I try to stay away from things that make me feel oily. Having dry skin, I need hydration. I need it under my makeup and over my makeup.
I decided to try this Beauty Elixir from Caudalie because I was in the Sephora checkout line, and you know, the travel sized goodies are so tempting. Well, I ended up really loving this product! Do you need this product? No. Will your makeup and skin still look good if you don’t have it? Yes. This is an extra, a bonus product if you will.
So, this is a spray skincare product. It is a serum and a toner, so it balances your skin without the sting-y, menthol feeling that toners usually give. It is very hydrating to the skin like a serum would be. It’s made up of essential oils and fruit extracts that are good for your skin.
So, you can pretty much use this a lot of different ways. You can use it before your moisturizer, after your moisturizer before you put on your makeup, or just as a cool refreshing mist anytime during the day. I use it any of these ways. I like to use it after I apply my foundation because I find that it takes some cakiness away and helps my foundation blend in and look more like skin. I also like to use it after powder to take away the powder-y look and give a dewy finish. On the days that I don’t wear makeup, I like to spritz this all over my face before my moisturizer. When I come inside after being in 100 degree heat, this feels great to spray all over my face.
The scent of this product is hard to describe. It smells amazing. You can definitely smell the peppermint, but it also smells like a spa with the blend of essential oils in it. Kind of like flowers. It makes you feel like you are at a spa, and is just so luxurious.
So, this product is not necessary, it’s just a bonus, because sometimes it’s nice to just have that one product that makes you feel special and like a queen. Haha. Treat yourself!
