Review: Caudalie Beauty Elixir

I thought I would add my two cents to the plethora of reviews regarding this wonderful little beautifying gem.

I am a big fan of Caudalie, and have a firm belief that their products are of high quality. So far, I have never been let down. So, when their Eau de Beaute (Beauty Elixir) came charging in and stealing the limelight, I was dying to get my hands on one and had an expectation of high standards I was hoping would be met.

The product is sold in two sizes: a handbag-friendly 30ml and more industrial-sized 100ml. I thought I would try the smaller of the two (purchased here) to have a little play with. This glorious stuff comes in a luxurious glass bottle with a misting spray for application and is marketed to be used as a toner/refresher/mood-enhancer/glow-enhancer all in one sort of thing and I absolutely adore it. In case you haven't seen it, the wonderful Lisa Eldridge mentioned this product (amongst many others) in her long-haul flight beauty regime video so be sure to go and have a watch for some more info.

I already use my precious Neal's Yard Rehydrating Rose Toner (review here) in the morning and evening and didn't want to use this as a substitute. However, on particularly hot days I do love this in the morning after cleansing, or throughout the day for a cool, tingling, refreshing sensation on the skin. It works well misted over a full face of make-up as the mist is so fine that only the smallest necessary quantity is dispensed. Remember to close your eyes whilst you mist as it can make them feel a little irritated if it gets in. It smells very strongly of a herbal-peppermint medley and this wont suit everyone, however I personally adore the scent and would recommend it to anyone for its refreshing, mood-enhancing properties.

Let me know if you have given this a try and what you think! I will definitely be repurchasing and fully support all the hype that it has been given.
