I'm sure you want to know if this is worth the hype. Made famous by Victoria Beckham herself, this elixir has surfaced on almost every major blog with extremely favorable reviews. I find it hard sometimes to not fall into the "hype" trap - how can so many people actually think a product is THAT good? Hype makes me question whether a product is that worth it or if people want to simply follow the trend. But sometimes, I give in, just to see for myself if they are right or not.
I have to say, I honestly agree with most of the reviews out there. The Caudalie Eau de Beaute is very refreshing when spritzed on the skin, and has a very pleasant herbal pepperminty scent I love. But I wouldn't recommend it to you if it just stopped there. I actually very much like this product because in my month or so of regularly using it, I have found my skin to have less and less breakouts. I'm not sure if it is because I'm using it as a toner most of the time, but my skin has been almost spotless for the month. My skin is quite temperamental so it's hard to say if the Caudalie Eau de Beaute has much to do with anything, but I think it might just have helped my skin stay clear. After going on vacation and only using once during that week, I found myself have a few whiteheads coming to the surface. I'd say this is suitable for all skin types. I have oily skin and this product seems to moisturize, refresh but not leave my skin oily at all. I even tried it on the boy who just said it didn't do anything, but that's because, well, he's a boy. Oh, the things I put him through.
If you're into skin care at all, I'd say this is definitely something to try. I have to say I wasn't quite sold on it in the first couple of weeks I've used this Eau de Beaute, but the consistent use of it really changed my mind. I haven't been using it over makeup (it's not a setting spray, but some bloggers have been using it as a makeup refresher) so I can't comment on that, but as a toner, this really is excellent.
Movie of the week (a day late, my apologies): The boy and I caught a showing of The Queen of Versailles on vacation and absolutely loved it. The documentary follows a billionaire family (The Seigels, owners of Westgate Resorts), trying to make it through harsh economic times - except they are still rich as can be, and they aren't able to help by cutting their ludicrous spending habits, and letting go the construction of their 90,000 square foot Versaille-looking dream home. This is seriously a must see.
