I know, I know.... Another Caudalie Beauty Elixir review. Well, I just wanted to share my thoughts. It is meant to have some magical ingredients/powers to make your skin look absolutely amazing. I think that the hype started when Victoria Beckham mentioned that Caudalie Beauty Elixir gives her a glowing complexion. Anyway... Many bloggers raved about it and I decided to get a small bottle from Feel Unique and see if it works for me.
CAUDALIE BEAUTY ELIXIR 30ml £9.90 link
"Inspired by the "elixir of youth" used by Queen Isabelle of Hungary, Caudalie Beauty Elixir smoothes features, tightens pores, and gives the complexion a burst of radiance. An excellent base for make-up, this water awakens the skin in the morning and livens it up before a night out. Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a favourite of Victoria Beckham's - she uses it on top of her make-up for a glowing complexion! For all skins lacking radiance. Caudalie Beauty Elixir is an exceptional anti-dull complexion treatment and a wonderful after-shave for men. Directions for use: Shake before use. Avoid contact with the eyes. Mist onto the face before your moisturiser and at any time of the day. Apply between your foundation and powder to perfectly set make-up."
At first I was absolutely amazed by this product! You probably seen me tweeting about it with excitement :) I used it 10 times a day!!! I just kept spraying it onto my face. It made my skin looking really fresh, tightened pores and gave me face a nice glow. I used it on top of my make up as well and it actually helped to keep it in place. It is great as a toner in the morning and gives a nice tingling sensation. The peppermint scent is lovely and refreshing. I know that it is too strong for some and I've heard people complaining about it, but I like the scent a lot.
After one week of using the elixir a couple of times a day I decided to only use it in the morning after washing my face and once again after putting makeup on. I am already halfway through the bottle, because I was really addicted to it at the beginning :)
It isn't a miracle product, but it gives impressive results if used a couple of times a day and I really like to use it to set my makeup. I am thinking about buying the full size. Let's hope buyapowa does a co-buy :) so we can get it cheaper.
Have you tried the Caudalie Beauty Elixir? What are your thoughts?
