All time favorites from Caudalie

Caudalie is a brand I learned about a couple of years ago and fell in love immediately with their concept and their natural and viticultural approach to skincare. In case you'd like to read more about my first encounters with Caudalie, here are two blog posts for you: Four years ago, I wrote about the Crushed Cabernet Peeling and two years ago about their then newly-launched face masks, which are still a staple in my beauty cabinet.

This post is about the very first product I’ve bought from the brand: eau de beauté, also known as the Beauty Elixir, which celebrates its 20th birthday this month. It’s been so highly praised on all the beauty blogs I was reading at that time, so I purchased it to see what the hype was all about. Years later, it has made my top 3 of the brands products.

Designer collaborations and limited editions
The Beauty Elixir comes in a beautiful limited edition on its 20th birthday. The same formula has been given a unique bottle design by different designers until now. The first limited edition bottle I had bought was designed by the late L’Wren Scott in 2013. My favorite bottle design was by Jason Wu last year: so delicate and chic.

What it is and why I love it:
This is a luxurious must-have for me on a flight, especially long-haul distances. It does have a distinctive, herbal scent, so it might not be for everyone. I actually like the smell and find it very refreshing. I also use it to give my makeup a dewy finish, especially when I have applied powder.

What it is and why I love it:
This is one of the products I keep buying whenever I finish a bottle. I use it for a first cleanse and just love the delicate smell. It's so effective in removing most of my makeup, even my pesky almost waterproof mascara. Afterwards for my second cleanse I use a gel and my trusted Clarisonic. I find this the best combo to remove sunscreen and makeup and feel really clean afterwards.

What it is and why I love it:
My skin drinks this right up. To me, this is a very good everyday serum that's not sticky or oily. If you don't have any special needs like clearing up blemishes or anti-aging properties, this is an excellent serum to have in your beauty cabinet.

I can wholeheartedly recommend these products to anyone interested in trying out some products of this French brand. Now the only thing left for me is to book a trip to “Les Sources de Caudalie” their famous spa in Bordeaux. On my wishlist for a long time…

I know that lots of readers are unsure if all they see and read about on Social Media are ads. On Styleseeking Zurich we note when we have received products to test. The ones marked with a * are PR samples that have been sent to me unsolicited. There is no monetary compensation for a post unless stated otherwise.
