I’ve had my eye on the Caudalie Beauty Elixir and Divine Oil for a while now but always assumed they were super expensive so didn’t go out of my way to buy them. This all changed whilst I was in the States last week. It’s no secret that Sephora is one of my favourite stateside shops and always top of my list when it comes to places to visit. Whilst I was wandering the shop in a somewhat jet-lagged state I spied a 30ml Caudalie Beauty Elixir for just $18, obviously I snapped it up.
The Divine Oil was more of an impulse buy on my last day in San Francisco and to be honest I instantly regretted buying it, even though it was only $15. I shouldn’t have worried though as already this has become a firm favourite of mine and one to add to the definite re-purchase list.
I’ll be writing a full review of both products once I’ve had a chance to use them for a while, but here are my initial impressions on them.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir – I used this to freshen up whilst on the flight and since getting home have used it morning and evening before my moisturiser. It has a fresh, minty scent which leaves my skin feeling tingly fresh. Whilst I like the way this works with the Divine Oil I’m not yet convinced this is an essential purchase.
Caudalie Divine Oil – One squirt of this was all it took to get me hooked. I’ve been using this nightly to rehydrate my skin. The scent is quite literally divine! A fabulous blend of 4 vegetable oils leaving your skin enveloped in a soft musky scent. As a multi-purpose oil I imagine it would also work fab used as a hair or body oil though I’m yet to try this.
I’ve had my eye on the Divine Oil, I was dead against the idea of using an oil on my face for so long but now I am finding it somehow really appealing, haha.
I felt exactly the same, but since taking the plunge I’ve been amazed by how great my skin looks and haven’t suffered my usual Winter dryness :)
