The freshest picks from the beauty brand I secretly hoard

Beauty / November 04, 2019

I’m about to let you in one of my beauty secrets. I’m a huge fan of the Caudalie Beauty Elixir.

It’s their signature product, as old as the brand itself, and is a best-seller.

For long workdays, I spray on the Beauty Elixir when I need a quick refresher, before I step out of the car for a meeting, and especially during warm days.

This cult product contains green grape for instant radiance, peppermint essential oil for a refreshing feeling, rose essential oil to soothe dry skin and rosemary essential oil for purifying.

The product is so loved that there’s a limited-edition pink bottle. Trust me on this: You’ll love how effective and multipurpose it is—it tones, tightens pores, preps and sets makeup.

Beauty Elixier led me to explore more of the French beauty brand. Caudalie harnesses ingredients from nature. It’s all good stuff with a commitment to make luxury products with a responsible ethos.

In New York, I I was happy to find its stand-alone store in New York, and I always look for it in the famed pharmacies of Paris. It’s also a constant in my Sephora PH shopping cart.

A few other products I love from Caudalie are recent discoveries.

First is the Fleur de Vigne Instant Foaming Cleanser. This soap-free cleanser comes in an airy foam and takes care of the skin’s pH balance while cleansing it. It contains sage, chamomile and green grape.

A luxe treat is the Premier Cru The Eye Cream. The price is justified by its efficacy in smoothing wrinkles, firming the eye contours, reducing dark circles and puffiness. Its power comes from only good ingredients like peptides and avocado oil.

Serums are necessary especially when the air gets drier from cold weather. I have the Skin Perfecting Serum. It’s a lightweight formula that has natural salicylic acid, grape seed polyphenols and organic essential oils to reduce the appearance of imperfections, and enlarged pores.

For those who have dark spots, including pregnancy marks, acne marks, sun pigmentation, and age-related dark spots, you can try the Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. It’s one of Caudalie’s most popular products because it delivers results rapidly with potent ingredients, the most vital of which is the Viniferine, which is “62 times more effective than Vitamin C.”

In December, I’m planning to visit a place where there’s snow. So I will most likely bring S.O.S. Intense Moisturizing Cream.

This one means serious business for extremely dry skin. It’s also a lifesaver if your skin is a bit sensitive because it gives hydration with antioxidant grape seed polyphenols, calming organic grape water and nourishing olive squalane and borage oil.

It relieves, tightens and visibly plumps up the skin to give long-lasting comfort and prevent any more skin problems.
