Product Review: Caudalie Beauty Elixir

I'm sure you've all read so many of these reviews by now your probably blue in the face, so I will keep it pretty short, but I just had to give it a post of it's own. I succumbed to the hype surrounding this product, like I'm sure a lot of people did lol, I can definitely say it's lived up to my expectations.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir Product Review

This Beauty Elixir is marketed as a multi-purpose product, and can be used as a toner, facial refresher, it also claims to reduce and tighten pores, eliminate lackluster skin and set make-up.

I use it primarily as my toner and it really refreshes my skin, especially in the mornings. I do suffer from large pores mainly on my nose and I'm going to be honest and say I've not really noticed any difference, but I didn't buy this product for that purpose anyway, so it doesn't bother me too much. It definitely helps my skin look more perky in the cold autumn mornings, I know some people really don't like the scent, my mum for example hates it and had to wash her face right after she'd used it. I personally love the scent, it's quite herbal, think Liz Earle.

I also tend to use it sometimes at night (lets face it, I am a bit lazy) after I've removed my make up.

I think you either love or hate this product, I for one love it and I'm already on my 2nd bottle, I actually look forward to using it in the mornings, that's really sad I know, but for me that's the power of a true skincare product.

The one downside I will say to this product is that it's quite pricey, the small bottle (30ml) is about £11 and the big bottle (100ml) is about £30, so it's definitely better value to buy the bigger one, except so far I've only ordered the small ones lol. I don't have an exact time-line to how long a bottle lasts me, but I can definitely say I will be repurchasing it, over and over.

What do you think of this beauty elixir?, are you a fan or do you think its a bit over hyped?
