Worth the Hype? Caudalie Beauty Elixir

This Caudalie Beauty Elixir has been recommended by some of the biggest names in the industry (the amazing Lisa Eldridge for one calls this a travel essential), but I have to admit I didn’t quite get along with it last time I had a little bottle. Time to see if it works better for me the second time around!

Caudalie Beauty Elixir

The Beauty Elixir comes in two sizes and I have the smaller here which contains 30 ml. This size costs between 10 and 16 euro, depending on your source. The sturdy glass bottle and decent lid makes it perfect for travel or carrying it around in your handbag on a long day.

The toner smells very refreshing and contains grape, orange blossom, mint, rose, and rosemary. It can be used as a toner in morning or evening for a little hydration and that great fresh feeling. Very comparable to my normal floral toner waters and not special enough for me to justify the spend. This aspect left me a little underwhelmed last time, so I didn’t quite understand the hype. I have since discovered that there is a different way to use this product.

You can use this to refresh your makeup on hot summer days be spraying a little into your palms and carefully patting it onto your face. It makes your makeup look fresh by creating a lovely dewy finish and the scent gives a great pick-me-up. This is clearly a much better way to use the product.

I can see myself taking this along on a flight or holiday, to freshen up and keep looking radiant. Now I understand why everyone keeps going on about this! Have you tried it? Let me know!


Het Caudalie Beauty Elixir word aangeraden door een aantal bekende namen (waaronder de geweldige Lisa Eldridge, die dit een noodzakelijk reisproduct noemt), maar ik moet eerlijk toegeven dat ik de vorige keer niet bepaald weg was van dit product.Tijd om te zien of het tweede flesje beter werkt!

Het Beauty Elixir bestaat in twee maten en ik heb hier het kleinere flesje met 30 ml. Deze maat kost tussen de 10 en 16 euro, afhankelijk van waar je het aanschaft. Het stevige glazen flesje en goede deksel maken dit heel geschikt om mee te nemen op reis of in je handtas voor een lange dag.

De toner ruikt heel verfrissend en bevat druif, oranjebloesem, mint, roos, en rozemarijn. Het kan ‘s ochtends en ‘s avonds gebruikt worden als een toner voor een beetje hydratatie en dat fijne frisse gevoel. Heel vergelijkbaar met mijn normale bloemen waters en een stuk duurder. ik vind het dus niet de moeite waard en was een beetje teleurgesteld. Ik heb nu ontdekt dat er nog een manier is om dit te gebruiken.

Je kunt het namelijk ook gebruiken om je makeup te verfrissen op een warme zomerdag. Spray een beetje in je handpalm en dep voorzichtig over je gezicht. Je makeup ziet er weer helemaal fris en stralend uit en de geur is een geweldige opkikker. Dit is echt een veel betere manier om het Beauty Elixir te gebruiken.

Dit is echt iets om mee te nemen tijdens een vlucht of vakantie, lekker om jezelf mee op te frissen en er weer stralend uit te zien. Nu snap ik waarom iedereen het hier steeds over heeft! Heb jij het al geprobeerd? Laat het me weten.

    This is the only Caudalie product (so far) that made my skin react–I got all these fleshy bumps on my forehead so I def stopped using it.

      Oh no! Haven’t had that much of a reaction, but it isn’t the best toner I’ve used. Great as a setting spray though.

    I look up to Lisa, so when she included this in some of her videos, I bought ti right away. But it didn’t work for me! I started to get fleshy bumps on my forehead so I had to return it.

      Oh no! I haven’t had that – thankfully – but it isn’t as multifunctional as I would have hoped. I love it as a finishing spray, but it isn’t the best toner.

      I agree it is a decent product, but not really special as a toner. I like it as a refresher, but I have so many new things to try I might not repurchase any time soon either.

      It smells really refreshing and works well in these warm summer months. I had expected it to do more as a toner though, but that isn’t its strong suit.

    This product sounds absolutely wonderful! I have never seen it around here but I can imagine it will be amazing for dry skin so I will have to keep my eyes open for it. 😀
    Lisa Eldridge is amazing! I love her videos.

      It is quite nice if a little pricey for what you get. I have tried some testers of other Caudalie products and they were nice 🙂
