Caudalie Beauty Elixir - Worth the Hype?

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months, you'll have seen rave reviews left, right and centre on Caudalie's Beauty Elixir. I've always been a little sceptical about toners - to me, they're just a bottle of water with a few fragrances chucked in for good measure, and I've never really seen an improvement in my skin from using them.

However, I really am intrigued by this little bottle of goodness. The elixir claims to smooth, tighten pores and provide an instant burst of radiance to the complexion with extracts of grape essential oil, rosemary, orange blossom, myrrh, mint and rose. This sounds perfect for summer, however, it doesn't come cheap: a tiny 30ml bottle will set you back just under £10 and the 100ml full size is £28.80!

Have you jumped on the Caudalie Band wagon? I really am on-the-fence with this one, so if you have tried it, drop me a comment. I'd also be interested to know if it has any noticeable effect on spots, so let me know!



  1. Im so on the fence with this too. I know i dont need it, but it's like is it worth a try?! I think i'll end up getting it eventually - the 30ml won't break the bank(unless i fall in love with it and have to buy the 100ml..)

  2. I've tried this but couldn't stand the scent. Lots of people do love it though x

  3. I'm with you on the toner thing. Posh, overpriced water in my opinion :) I probably wouldn't buy this because I don't think I'd get enough use out of it for what the price is! x

  4. I haven't tried it, but just wanted to say you have a really cute blog layout :)

  5. I really want to try this! I've only heard amazing things about it :)

  6. In my opinion this product is not worth the hype - I tried it out in store and not only does it have such an offensively strong scent that it made me feel a little queasy but it just left my skin looking damp x
