Hi guys! What’s going on friends? So, if you read last week’s post, you’ll know about my new obsession in skincare by Caudalie and how much I’m loving the skincare products.
It’s going to be a little review on the skincare products that I’ve been using lately and it’s got to be the Caudalie Favorites Set. I really like that they have very much all the products which I wanted to try out and there have been a lot of requests for a review on some of the products from this set.
So, I’m going to go ahead with the review right now.
This set comes in a good size travel bag which I really appreciate. I like that the material is made of part cloth and the front a transparent plastic for easy view.
Premier Cru The Eye Cream – for all skin types
On the website, it says – this sumptuous eye cream reduces the signs of aging related to the eye contour: dark circles, puffiness, drooping eyelids, shadowy areas. Apply morning and evening, a twice daily ritual for best results.
I’m quite impressed with the texture, it’s creamy and luxurious. This tinted tan color cream goes on smoothly without leaving any white cast or stickiness whatsoever.
It’s been a week since I tried it and I haven’t noticed anything substantial. I don’t find that it helped at all with dark circles or puffiness. The only good side I noticed is an immediate radiance effect on my skin and that it works well under makeup.
Frankly, I’m so glad that I got it in sample size before I decided to plunge in the splurge. Given the price in full size bottle is $99 (CAD$110) at Sephora, I honestly don’t think it’s worth the hefty price tag. It’s an okay eye cream but don’t expect it to knock your socks off kind of eye cream.
Instant Detox Mask – to tighten pores
I get a lot of requests to do this review. So, I’m going to jump right in.
Although I’m a fan of Caudalie, this is my first experience with their masks and I’m well impressed. The full size tube is 75 ml and retails for CAD$47 and it’s Made in France. 0% animal ingredients and paraben free.
This mask comes packaged in a beautiful sleek squeeze tube. They claim that Instant Detox Mask is designed to eliminate impurities and toxins to tighten pores and renew skin texture. Recommended use is 5-10 minutes and rinse, 2x per week. Main ingredients are pink clay, grape marc and coffee.
My thoughts after one week of testing it. I do think to see long-term results one needs to put skincare products to the test for an extended period of time, but in the one week that I’ve tested it, I can say that after each use, you can definitely feel a difference in skin texture and overall feel.
This is a traditional clay mud masks that draw impurities, oils and tighten pores. It comes in a pink clay color that will dry and tighten after you applied it. As it dries, I can feel my skin tightening and you can see tiny dark spots where it’s drawing out oils from your pores. It’s non-irritating and leaves the skin feeling super clean. If you have dry skin like me, then you may want to leave this on for a shorter period of time or just use this on spots.
My verdict: The Instant Detox Mask is something I think will be extremely popular, especially for those with oily skin, it’s potent but still very gentle on the skin and won’t irritate or sting like some other lines will.
Beauty Elixir – for smoothing & glowing complexion
Let’s talk about this Beauty Elixir shall we and take a moment to enjoy this awesomeness! Yes, it’s my first experience trying out this product so you can tell how excited I was when I did the test run last week.
Here’s what I think.
I’ve heard so many hype on the internet awhile ago and have always wanted to try for myself and see what the raves were all about. So, when I saw this is in the Caudalie Favorites Set I was over the moon.
Could you just imagine misting your face with the refreshing Beauty Elixir on a hot summer day… What a relief that would be, right?
Let me tell you. It feels refreshing and awesome! The mist is very fine and not squirty at all, the frosted glass packaging looks beautiful on my vanity, and it does feel cooling on the skin for the 3 seconds before it dries. I love the amazing scents. I’m in heaven.
Micellar Cleansing Water – 3 in 1 remove makeup, cleanse and tone
Caudalie Make-Up Remover Cleansing Water is a soap-free water that removes makeup while cleansing and toning the your skin. I really like the scents – it has a slight orange, lemon and minty scents which I can’t really describe but it does smells amazing.
It removes eye makeup very easily. You don’t have to rub it hard, just leave the cotton pad on your eyes for a few seconds and then gently wipe it off. Won’t cause eye irritation and tugging. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. I know that I’ll be reaching for this from now on and will repurchase in a full size bottle once I go through this one.
Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet – to quench and smooth skin
Last but not least is the moisturizing sorbet cream. The product itself is a white color cream, which has the perfect texture and consistency. It’s neither runny like a lotion; nor is it very thick to mimic a balm. The moisturizer is extremely light weight, with a nice creamy texture, I would say it feels more or less like a mousse with primer. It’s cooling and not sticky at. I love the smell of what they characterize it as “cut grass”. Smells so fresh and calming.
This is a perfect cream for dry skin to combination skin typed people. Since I’m in the dry combination category I see myself reaching for it. At present. I’m mainly using it in the morning instead of putting loads of moisturizer. This moisturizer may seem light weight at first sight but it really gets the work of hydration done perfectly. I’m in love!
I truly think this is one of the best yet. If you’re a total skincare product junkie, new starter to skincare or product tester, you know you don’t really need a bunch of full size skincares … let’s face it, you just won’t use them up. Here you get a nice sampling of products that are still generously sized. Good job, Caudalie! For $39 it’s a super deal.
That rounds up my latest testing of skincare by Caudalie. I hope you enjoyed and if you’re on the hunt for a good skincare, I hope this review helps.
