Caudalie Skincare Range

Caudalie, Caudalie, Caudalie…what are you doing to me! I came across this skincare brand at Christmas (a little late to the party I know) and didn’t really know much about it. I tried one of their cleansing waters and loved it but didn’t really know much about the other products.

Then a few months ago I popped into their spa in Covent Garden for a facial and my love affair began. The story behind these products is so nice. They are all made from a vineyard in France using the crushed grapes when they have been used for wine. Grapes have so many anti-oxidants in them which explains why my skin has been looking and feeling so soft and radiant. Lots of you have been commenting that my skin looks better and I honestly think it’s this.

I’ve picked out my 3 hero products from the range. The first, the beauty elixir, is my favourite from the whole range. Blogs, makeup artists and celebrities have been raving about this and I was so desperate to try it. I’m not usually a fan of face sprays, I find them a little sticky and pointless but this has become my absolute staple! I’m so addicted I bought the mini so I could carry it in my handbag and it doubles up as a toner too. The spray smells of mint and is so refreshing and leaves my skin so soft. I have combination skin and I’ve noticed a huge difference in terms of the dry patches feeling far less flaky without leaving me feeling greasy. If you’re lazy like me with applying toners this will become your new best friend!

Next up is my go-to moisturiser, the Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Fluid with SPF15. This has fast become a monthly favourite. First of all it’s matte in texture and literally melts onto your skin like a primer. It works like one too and smoothes out my skin instantly leaving it looking flawless. The smell is beautiful too. If you’re looking to try out their skincare, the the vinexpert and premier cru is for dry or mature skin, the vinoperfect range will suit combination and oily skin types and the vinosource range is for sensitive skin.

Finally last but by no means least, the divine scrub. The smell of this had me hooked from the moment I opened the pot. It’s scented with grapefruit, rose, cedar, vanilla and white musk. Absolute heaven! It’s made up of plant oils and brown sugar which make it a slightly softer body exfoliator which works if you’re not so keen on the ones that have bigger granules. It is a little thicker than some scrubs, so I add a bit of water and it turns into a milky consistency.

To top to off they’ve just opened a spa in Covent Garden London. Looks as though I better get saving! Have you tried the range? What’s your go-to skincare at the moment? Love Becky x

MY MORNING ROUTINE: London Fashion Week

It’s that time of year again, London Fashion Week! Every time it happens my twitter feed is filled with gorgeous outfits, the best of the best comes out of everyones wardrobe and I get total outfit envy! So this year, I was so excited to be going to my first ever LFW!

In the first of two videos from London, I’ve put together my morning routine along with a really cute and easy hair braid. I’ve changed my skincare recently after going along to one of Simple’s Skin Social workshops to learn all about my skin. I suffered from acne as a teenager and still get spots now so it was great to learn so much! Happy watching! Becky x
