Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir recently turned 20 and this had to be celebrated with a limited-edition gold bottle… And with an ad featuring the always stunning Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Honestly, we had never tested the product till a few weeks ago (shame on us) and now we can’t stop spraying. After we cleaned our faces in the morning and the evening, to fixate our make-up or just randomly. Using the elixir might have become an addiction, luckily it’s a harmless one.
The elixir of eternal youth
After Mathilde Thomas learned about the 16th century elixir of eternal youth and its ingredients, she wanted to create her own modern version. At first she worked on a new formula, mainly for herself. It had to be a product that refreshes the complexion of the skin, fixates make-up and could be easily implemented in every beauty routine. She didn’t realize, all the way back in 1997, that she was carving a new way through the world of cosmetics.
Will it make you look young forever?
Is the Beauty Elixir really a mythical potion that promises eternal youth? Well, this wonderful product does a lot but nothing (except a plastic surgeon in some cases) can beat the aging. After using the elixir for a month we can say that it works refreshing. We don’t know about you guys but that mist in the morning really helps us to wake up. Besides that it smoothes away fine lines (check), tightens pores (check), sets make-up (check) and boosts radiance (check). Who wants to look like a 15-year-old when you’re 35 anyway?
Caudalie is known for its products make from 100% natural ingredients, same with the Beauty Elixir. No parabens, no synthetic perfumes but rose, myrrhe, rosemary, grapes and orange blossom instead.
This elixir is the favorite of celebs, make-up artists and beauty bloggers. And we get why… It’s such a practical allround product that keeps its promises. A must have for your makeup bag!
