Caudalie are a French based company launched in 1995 by Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas from the family vineyard in France and has grown into one of the most successful skin care brands in the world. I have never tried Caudalie before but I was in the Space NK shop in Brighton and I spotted this little gift set. It consists of a little travel bag with 4 travel size items. I always think it is a good idea to buy these little gift sets as you can try them without spending your money on the full size versions in case you don’t like them. The set contains Grape water and Camomile cleansing water make up remover, Vinosource Moisturizing sorbet, Divine oil and Fleur De Vigne shower gel.
The moisurizer looks sour milk when you pour some onto your hand but it feels so light and absorbs so quickly you barely notice it. I have break outs on my skin and this has really helped.
The Divine oil smells gorgeous and is a dry oil which dries almost instantly. It really hydrates the skin and can be used not just for your body and face, but for your hair, nails or even as a massage oil. A wonderful product.
The shower gel is soap free enriched with aloe vera and has the fragrance of white rose and rose pepper. It really is a beautiful gel with a lovely smell.
I have left the make up remover till last as this hasn’t really worked for me. I find it very difficult to remove ordinary black mascara as it left me with grey residue stains all around my eyes. I had to use a different product to remove the stains and time consuming to do this. It smells wonderful but I have to say this wasn’t for me and I am glad I tried it.
I can’t wait to try other products from this wonderful company, particularly the hand creams, face creams and the body products. Paris here I come! 🙂
