Disappointing Products: Caudalie Beauty Elixir

4 years ago

Having seen the Caudalie Beauty Elixir featured on 90% of the blogs I read, Youtube videos and in the media I finally caved and ordered myself a bottle from FeelUnique. At £9.90 for just 30ml, and £28.80 for 100ml this isn`t cheap which is what put me off purchasing it for so long.
This product claims to `smooth features, tighten pores and give the complexion a burst of radiance` - so, is it worth the money?
Honestly I`d say no. I had high hopes for this as I`d seen it raved about all over the web and heard that Victoria Beckham herself swears by it to give her a glowing complexion but for me it did nothing. I tried this under make-up on clean skin, over make-up and as a refresher but I didn`t find it made the slightest bit of difference whichever way I used it! If I was being generous I might say it added a small amount of luminosity when spritzed over make-up but it didn`t prolong the wear or keep up the effect during the day. Also, the fragrance is incredibly bizarre - I`d expected a lightly fragranced, refreshing mist but instead I found the scent overpowering. To me it smells very herbal, with a hint of mint and a bit flowery but it`s not discrete in the slightest so for me, spraying this in public as a refresher is a no, no.
The only thing I really liked about this product is the packaging which I think is very classic and expensive looking but apart from that, to me this just feels like over-hyped, over-priced smelly water. In no means do I want this to sound like a massive brand bashing post, so I do feel like I should mention that I love their S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum and Body Scrubs. But, in the future I`ll opt for my Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray or the Evian Face Mist.
