Let’s Talk About Caudalie


Caudalie Beauty Elixir – £10.35 30ml/£28.80 100ml

I have a confession to make. It’s been a secret that has been terribly hidden and as much as I wanted to ignore it and pretended it wasn’t happening, I have fallen head over heels for the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. This product has featured in a fair few favourite posts but shockingly enough there hasn’t been a sole review dedicated to this beauty water. As you can see from the above picture my love has been bubbling away for quite a while, four mini bottles down (and one still going strong in London) I finally gave in and picked up the 100ml bottle from Buyapowa. This product first became popular after the beaut herself Victoria Beckham tweeted about her love for it. Understandably anything that is hyped about by VB herself, quickly shoots to the top of everyone’s wish list and in (what seemed like no time at all) became one of the most talked about beauty products on the blogersphere.

When this first became popular there were mixed reactions. Many didn’t understand it, some were opposed to the  medicinal scent and others just didn’t see any skincare benefits. Initially I was part of that group and my first mini bottle sat unloved and unused. This quickly changed after a bout of bad skin where the Beauty Elixir was an integral part of my routine to getting my skin blemish free. Packed away inside these bottles are oodles of skincare benefiting ingredients that help to tighten pores and improve radiance in your complexion. This can be used as a toner but I prefer to use it throughout the day. Either on targeted areas of bad skin or just to pep my skin up I find this makes the perfect addition to my skincare routine. It seems to add that extra oomph I was lacking and it works wonders for me at reducing redness and helping to give any spots the heave ho.

Whenever I travel, go away for the weekend of even am out for a long day, there will always be a bottle of this by my side. It doesn’t give you an immediate result on your skin but after using it for a few months my skin is clearer, brighter and a lot more radiant. Looks like VB does know what she is talking about ;)

  • ah im so with you on this!! I pretty much use this to excess!!…it smells like a spa in a bottle (reaches for bottle…) haha xx

    I wanted to love this but unfortunately it broke me out! :(


    • A Girl and a Beauty Blog

      Oh no! That’s such a shame – just goes to show skincare is different for everyone xx

  • I love this, too. At first, I didn’t really understand it, but after a particularly bad break out I realized what it was doing for my skin & I’ve been spritzing it on everyday. It’s so refreshing. There’s another toner out there I want to try after my current bottle is finished, but I have a feeling this is going to become a staple.

      I haven’t got into the habit of using this as a toner but instead I use this as an additional skincare pick me up when my skin is misbehaving!xx

  • I really want to try this, heard so much about it!

    A little bit Unique


    • A Girl and a Beauty Blog

      It’s great that you can pick up a small bottle to try it out xx

  • I went through a small and large bottle of this and then forgot about it and moved on to other things. I think I should give it another go.

      It can easily be forgotten about but my skin shows when I haven’t been using it xx
