Obsession Du Jour: Caudalie Beauty Elixir 7.26.10

Let me set the stage for you, 110 degrees, 90% Humidity and smelly.

That was New York City for the past week. Unbearable basically. There was a massive heat wave and let me tell you something, it was wreaking havoc on my beauty regimen. Fortunately, my skin has been in tip top condition because I could not wear a stitch of makeup as it was SO hot I literally didn't want anything on my face. All I have been using is lip balm, a swipe of mascara and my secret weapon of choice, Caudalie Beauty Elixir.



How I love thee! It saved my life this week. How so?

First of all, it is very cooling and refreshing, it is in a spritzer bottle so at that time of day when I am so overheated a good spritz of this and I instantly feel better. It also smells amazing. It is smells reminiscent of an herbal scent, something lavender-y and minty. Additionally, when sprays it leaves a glow. No shimmer, no sparkle, just a glow from hydration. My favorite part about it, it is completely paraben and synthetic chemical free! This product is described as part toner, part serum mist of essential oils. Sign me up!

I picked mine up in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, but you can pick it up at Sephora for $16. It even has their seal of natural approval. Win Win!

This is a staple in my bag for those hot summer days!

Stay Cool!

  1. omg! i absolutely love this stuff, its even great on top of makeup, and when you using powders it gets rid of the powdery look and leaves a certain glow about about your skin - though im shocked at the price difference, here in the uk this fabulous prod cums with a hefty price tag of £36!!!!

  2. I was just thinking this sounded great for the heat we're having in the UK at the moment, until I saw Amina's comment - £36! Very expensive! x

  4. The beauty elixir is great. I also love their grape water mist for the same thing! They have such a great line - I use their gentle face cleanser and the complexion correcting radiance serum!

  7. sounds like a great product. But I'm being put off with oils in it. Has anyone with a combination acne-prone skin tried it? What do you think?

  10. I hear you Dara, its hot as the devils balls here in Florida too. Not smelly though, unless its red tide. I'm going to make my first NYC trip this September! I'm so excited! I'm copy and pasting all of your outfits of the day so when I go I won't look like a total Floridian! :) Going in Sept- heard its beautiful! Time to see the city and celebrate being single. Love your blog and vids :)

  11. I do want to try this but more than likely use it after my lunch hour gym workout since the weather has been well in the low 60's here in SF. I wonder how it would look on top of my tinted moisturizer.

  12. I like the line caudalie as well...

    as for the price difference, there are 2 sizes and I think the 16$ is for the small size (30ml), over here it is 10euros so it's the same

    their radiance serum is also great, musthave!
