If you have been around for a while, you may remember my utter disappointment after trying a few Caudalie products. Another overhyped French brand I thought to myself, loved for being French and their Instagram worthy floral prints.
Especially the “cult favorite”, the infamous Beauty Elixier (Read my review here) made me almost loose interest completely. But the constant appearance all over the blogosphere and the fact that you can’t do one step when on holiday in France without having it shoved into your face made me weak.
Just one more thing, I said. Just one.
Why I did end up purchasing the biggest size available though will forever remain a mystery. I guess the “sale” sticker had fogged my mind.
So, once again, Caudalie. The Caudalie Grape Water, to be precise. Did that one at last convince me?
There are many well-known and, dare I say, hyped brands out there that I have been meaning to try for a while now. I fall for anything that gets a lot of attention on the blogs quite easily and have a obscenely long “wish list” on my Pinterest featuring products that most likely cost more than my annual salary when added up.
Every once in a while I will take the plunge and get some stuff to see for myself what all the fuzz is about.
And every once in a while I am left pretty clueless, wondering: What am I missing?
The last time that happened was with the brand Caudalie. Of course I try different products, as there is no “one size fits all” in skincare, and today I will be showing you the two latest I put to the test. The “Eau de Beauté” facial mist (listed among the “Cult products on the website) and the Instant Foaming Cleanser.
