Favorites from my Favorite: Caudalíe

Friday, August 5, 2016


Caudalie is one of my favorite skincare brands. It's ethically sourced, plant based, elegantly packaged (which, since getting ready is one of my favorite rituals, is admittedly but shamelessly important!), and makes my skin glow like no other. I have not tried every product from their whole line, as I buy things based on my own skin type & needs (normal to combination skin - some parts oily some parts too dry), but I have figured out what my favorites are of what I have gotten.

The Eau de Beauté is my favorite face mist of all time. It's supposed to have been the beauty elixir used by the Queen of Hungary. It's minty and tingly and makes your skin look super dewy. In the summer, I try to leave it in the fridge when I'm not carrying it around so it's extra refreshing in the heat. I use it in the morning when I wake up, throughout the day if my face feels dry, and it goes well over any makeup or sunscreen you may have on.


I first started using the brand's Vinosource Creme Sorbet when I was in Italy. All of the little pharmacies sold it and it was being advertised absolutely everywhere. I decided to find out what all the hype was about and was so pleasantly surprised. It comes in different viscosities for different skin types from dry to oily. Mine is for "sensitive skin." I decided to go with this because I layer it over my Caudalie Vitamin C Serum and didn't want to risk irritating my skin with multiple products. It really works out nicely. The creme is light, almost frothy, and really wakes up dull skin.

The Glycolic Peel is something I use about once a week. I really appreciate at-home treatments and masks. It's fun and way more economical to do your own spa treatments, even if you buy really high end products. (One treatment at a spa can run you 80 bucks or more alone). You can stock up your whole bathroom with 3 months worth of quality products for the cost of a few spa days. This is a creamy white mask that I use to sop up any excess oil on my face and tighten my pores. You only need to leave it on for ten minutes, and your skin looks bright and renewed instantly. I haven't necessarily noticed any long term effects yet, but on the day that I use it, I feel great.

  2. Got the sample size of the mist today and my god it is so refreshing. Looking forward to seeing what it does for my skin! Always looking for all-natural products so I appreciate the post. Would love to hear more when you make discoveries. Have you tried any products from Fresh? I'm a little fuzzy on whether or not they are all-natural but the products smell so amazing and feel so nice on the skin.

  4. I know this isn´t related to this post, but I was wondering if you know of any good documantaries about veganism and meat-industry? I´m trying to show my family the harm of eating meat, but I'd prefer documentaries that didn't show actual videos of animals getting harmed, but rather presented the facts in a less horrifying way. (I know the videoes show the truth but I can´t watch them without completely breaking down, so I´d prefer something a bit less violent.)

    Btw, I absolutely adore your blog!

    1. Try Cowspiracy! Or Forks Over Knives. That's what I started with before going to more intense ones, like Earthlings and Meet Your Meet.

  5. I once got to test out this brand through a free birthday "gift" from Sephora (it was either lipgloss or the Caudalíe moisturizer, so the choice was obvious). The cream was light, smelled amazing and my skin absorbed it so quickly. At the time I was not plant based, but it's good to know that their products are; I will look out for them again! :)

  6. Hey, but Caudalie tests on animals. at least in America, so, you know it's not very ethically sourced. But if you order their stuff in France then it's a bit better, but still the company is kinda hypocrite.

  8. Good evening,
    I just ordered the three products you recommended. I can't wait to try them.
    I think the best about it is that I will live in Paris in September so if they work for me, I'll be able to easily buy them at the nearest shop an for an average price.

    I had a question, could you be a bit more precise when it comes to the amount of money you spend on beauty products each month?
    Thank you in advance !

  9. Actually, the caudalie moisturizers (and I think the mist thing too) have like three types of alcohol and fragrance which are dreadful for your skin. I got the matifying one and it smelled great and felt great but then I read the ingredients and had to exchange it.
