Caudalie – Beauty Treats Well Worth A Mention

After reading about Caudalie, it’s everywhere – magazines and social media, I was excited to see what all the hype is about! I’ve been using this little collection for a couple of weeks now, road testing it for you all.


Caudalie Review

Caudalie was founded by Mathilde Thomas and her husband on their family estate in Bordeaux France. From the heart of the Vineyards.

The vine and grapes possess exceptional powers for the skin -Powers that were waiting to be discovered

The brand has been a huge success and there are also spa’s dedicated to the Caudalie brand where you can experience face and body treatments discovering more about what Caudalie has to offer. They look really dreamy too and I’ve added a visit to my wish list.

Let’s talk about the three items I’m using

I’ve had the Beauty Elixer (right side) for some time now actually. I was saving it for my holiday in May but after my face dehydrating from all the central heating being kept in overdrive due to our lovely British weather, I decided to give it a go and see if it would make a good remedy. I will be talking about this on the weekly vlog so you will be able to see how fine this spray actually is. Did you catch last weeks film? You can catch it here

The spray is really fine and I’ve used this with or without makeup and it doesn’t interfere with the makeup at all. I’ve used some hydrating sprays before and my makeup has run! The fine mist from this is perfect.

Called the makeup artist secret, it’s actually used to set makeup. Made from all natural ingredients Rose, Lemon, Peppermint, Rosemary and of course grape, it smells delicious but not at all overpowering.

It’s said that this is great for tightening pores, setting makeup, smoothing fine lines and giving a boost of radiance. I’m loving it for the hydration boost too.

Caudalie Premier Cru is super hydrating with my favourite ingredient Hyaluronic Acid

The Premier Cru “The Cream” is not at all heavy. This is great for me when using at night. I find the heavier the cream, the puffier I am in the mornings, so for me, this is great.  Containing my all-time favourite Hyaluronic Acid it’s really hydrating.

This also contains Vineferine from the grapevine and this ingredient is said to keep dark spots at bay. Grapeseed oil for moisture and Peptides for lifting. I’m only using this at night because it doesn’t contain SPF. A light floral smell, not at all overpowering I’m really enjoying using it. I like the fact that these products are Paraben free too.


Caudalie Premier Cru “The Serum”

I’m using this Premiere Cru Serum morning and night and it’s fantastic. This is what I’m most pleased with out of the three items. Expensive at £90.00 but boy it seems to be doing its job.

Restores Cellular energy – most important for our anti ageing! Tackles deep wrinkles and dark spots plus firming ingredients are added. The reviews for this on the Caudalie website are really good. Containing a patented ingredient called Vinergy –  to help restore cellular energetic metabolism and combat the ageing process. That’s why it’s pricey! Who’d have thought a grapevine was so antiageing?

One pump of the serum is enough to cover the face I used two for face and neck. A light smelling serum, I can smell peonies! I will report back on my experience using the serum after a month or so but so far it’s fantastic.


Do take a look at the Caudalie website

Overall so far I’m very impressed with these Caudalie items. The Beauty Elixer has been a godsend, helping my dehydrated skin due to our UK weather! Do take some time out to look at the website and see What Caudalie has to offer.

All thoughts are honest in this review. I get sent many creams and potions! If I don’t rate it, then it doesn’t get mentioned!

    A wonderful post and useful information. I saw this cosmetics on the site, but I have not tried it yet. And they have a very beautiful packaging 🙂

    Great post!! Spring is in its way and its very important to take a proper care of the skin. Our skin is very sensitive so it’s very important that we should take a proper care.

    Ooops , I’d not heard of them or the hype – but they sound interesting. I’m glad you’re here to test them for me, and keep me informed! Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

    I’ve never been big on using creams but over the last few months I’ve noticed my skin becoming dry and itchy and I started using a face cream which really helps. Thanks for the recommendations!

    My husband and I both adore Caudalie!! We’ve been using the Overnight Detox Oil for almost two years now, and it’s been a blessing in keeping age at bay 🙂 it’s so much cheaper in Europe though than here in the States so we tend to stock up each time we go back to Italy.

    Great recommendations thank you. As I get older, I am spending more and more money on facial skin care. Tips are always welcome. Pen x #AnythingGoes

    These look and sound great Laurie. could do with treating myself to a whole new skincare range 🙂

    Thanks so much for sharing your post with us at Creative Mondays.

    Thank you so much for the review! I wish I could spend more money on skin care, but I have a hard time doing that. I’m mostly a soap and water gal because of it.

    I am more and more in need of good quality products like these, thanks for giving such a good review.

    I find grapes perfect for my antiaging, but in the form of wine but there we go:). I have heard of the brand and do have some samples which I’m ashamed to say I have’t go around to trying. That mist sounds superb. Thank you for experimenting for us.

    Have used Caudalie in the past – like the idea of using grapes with all their polyphenols and goodness. Like the sound of the spray!

    My skin so needs a dose of proper care. Why does age have to create so much havoc on our skins. I’ll be back for a follow up, I’d love to know how the serum works over a longer term

    I love Caudalie products! I was fortunate enough to visit the vineyards and spa in Bordeaux a few years ago – it is the most incredible place! I’d love to go back one of these days.

    I can only imagine that the weather is crazy and you struggle with dry skin in the UK. This sounds like a great product.

    I’ve tried several of their products after I was given some samples at a shop in Antwerp. And although I’m usually using cheaper products, one of the samples won me over so that I bought it. I believe it was the serum! The smell is absolutely divine as well! xxx

    An interesting post, Laurie, and as I type I’m looking over to my grapevine and wondering what magic it holds for my skin! Looking very elegant in that dressing gown, may I say! Happy huggly week to you, x
