- Tightens pores and provides an instant burst of radiance to the complexion.
BUY THE LARGE SIZE AND SAVE!
Who says there’s nothing new under the sun or, in this case, under the grape arbor? In what can only be thought of as a serendiptious meeting in 1993 young Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas met a professor from Bordeaux University on the estate of the Chateau Smith Hunt Lafitte.From this chance meeting the couple learned that the professor had discovered that seeds thrown away at the close of a grape harvest contained anti-ageing properties. Following research, experimentation, and several patents, Caudalie was born.A favorite from this line is Beauty Elixir, part tonic, part serum. Use of toners has proven too harsh, having a tendency to dry skin while the Elixir softens.In addition to the Grape Extracts Beauty Elixir contains Vitamins A, B, and C, extracts of Myrrh, Orange and Rose Flower, and oils of Rosemary and Mint.The Elixir, for use on a cleansed skin under moisturizer, tightens pores and smoothes the complexion leaving skin with a natural glow.
This elixir smells great and feels nice on the skin, but I guess I just don’t understand it’s purpose or how it benefits my skin. I won’t be repurchasing this product.
Hydrating and Refreshing
I love this but the smell keeps me from giving it 5 stars. The minty scent is definitely refreshing, however, the rest of the mix kind of smells like urine to me.That said, it does a great job of hydrating your skin and far better than other facial mists I’ve tried. It has a really fine mist that doesn’t require any blotting afterwards and it doesn’t leave your face feeling tight like other brands do. The 1 oz. size is perfect for carrying around in your purse but with daily use each bottle only lasts 2-3 months at best. I use it sometimes to set powder makeup and while it doesn’t really help the makeup last, it does keep it from looking powdery. I’ll frequently use it as a toner after washing my face and follow with a moisturizer. I’m on my second bottle and will likely continue to repurchase as I haven’t found any other clear mist that is quite as refreshing and hydrating.A tip: I definitely recommend shaking the bottle before applying.
Shift worker – this beauty spray helps me wake up when I am really tired
I have used this product off and on since 2007.I first found it at Sephora when I was working there part time.Fast forward 6 years. I now have a job where I work 12 hour shifts. I keep a bottle of this by my bed and its’ the first thing I do when I wake up, after I shut off my alarm. I have to wake up at 0300am and let me tell you, a spritz of this product instantly wakes me up and gets me going.I keep another bottle with me on shift, especially overnights, to help me stay alert and awake and combat the dry air in my work center.I wish it was not so expensive. I need to buy additional, larger bottles. This is a comfort item I have selected to put in my “go” kit.
I LOVE this stuff
when i ordered it I actually thought it was a serum or something (my mistake), but it turned out to be a toner…and a great one. Feels super refreshing, and helped shrink up my zits! Great stuff.
I splurged based off comments from a blog….
What is a beauty elixir and what do you do with it? I realized it would have been perfect for the airplane, but it’s too much liquid to allow bring on-board. It’s very light and refreshing. Has a bit more herbal medicinal scent than I was expecting. I’m not sure what the true purpose of this would be, but I found it works perfect to set my make-up. I use a powder foundation, blush and eye shadow. And wow, the staying and smudge-free effect I get when I spray this elixir on my face post my make-up routine was quite impressive. I notice a definite difference when I use this vs. not. It not only sets my make-up, but gives my drier skin a nice glow. I’m not sure I’ll purchase again due to the higher cost, but I’m glad I splurged and found a use!
I love this product!!! My face is always getting blackheads and is greasy and generally feels awful. When I first used this spray, I got a wonderful, clean, tingly feeling that didn’t fade away. It’s quite an experience! I’ve gone through 3/4 of the small bottle in about 2 weeks because I’m addicted to the way it makes my skin feel. I had a facial about 2 weeks ago, before I started using this product and haven’t seen a blackhead, yet. And the grease is gone! Awesome!!!
It smells heavenly. I feel a lot more awake after spraying it on my face. It dries to a little bit sticky but I’d think that’s because it has hydrating property. One of the best toners I’ve ever tried.
caudalie beauty elixir
They say the women in France are hooked on this stuff! I see why. I spray it on and it instantly hydrates and wakens my skin. I look great all day. I am in my 50’s with mature dry skin that is dull. Excuse me, used to be dull! Love love, love this stuff!!
Smells good but not exactly sure what’s it’s use
I purchased this for longer flights which tend to dry out my skin. I usually use the Evian spray but opted for this due to the pleasant scent. Considering it’s pricier, I would likely not purchase again because I don’t think it adds much. The scent is nice and it does last for quite awhile.
