Thursday Favourites: January 16th

Caudalie Beauty Elixir

Happy Thursday y’all!

This Thursday, I’m finally going to be covering one of my holy grail skincare products. I’ve been waiting to use it up so I can take better photos of it in a fresh bottle, and it finally happened!

There’s only two products in my current skincare routine that I’ve been using for years now without switching them up. The first product is Clinique’s Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator. I already covered it in a previous post, but it’s been my moisturizer since like, high school. Today’s product, which I actually did cover briefly in my Holiday Gift Guide, while not quite as much a veteran of my skincare routine, certainly has been a staple for at least 3+ years now. I’m talking about Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir Spray, the best and most simple product for adding a radiant glow to your complexion.

This toning mist is known for tightening pores, adding radiance, and even setting makeup. What I love most about it, however, is how simple it is to apply. While this spray is technically a toner, I use it as a sort of essence to add radiance to my skin. I absolutely love this product for this, since all I have to do is spray it on my face a few times and then I’m all good to go. There’s absolutely nothing oily, heavy, drying, or ANY other negative aspect of essences about this spray. It’s completely no-fuss, no-worries. If it wasn’t for how great it makes your complexion look, after a few seconds of absorbing into your skin it would almost be as if you’d never applied it at all.

The other great aspect of the simplicity of this product is also that you can use it whenever you need a bit of extra radiance in your day. Obviously you can use it during both your morning or nighttime skincare routines, but you can also just spritz a little on throughout the day as you need it. The best part is that not only will it not harm your makeup if you spray it over top — it actually acts as a setting spray, so you’re actually doing your makeup a little favour.

Ever since I began using this product (which is also certified clean by Sephora), I’ve never once had a dull skin day. Seriously, not ever. Even on my worst days, when I’m just completely worn out, my skin still looks fresh and radiant — and I have this spray to thank for it. While other skincare products in my rotation may come and go — the Caudalie Beauty Elixir is definitely here to stay.

Sound like the product you’ve been needing in your life? Check out the Caudalie Beauty Elixir online at Sephora here!

I hope you’ve all been having a great week! Personally, I’ve been struggling just a little since it’s snowing in Vancouver this week — hard to believe after spending nearly 18 years growing up in Toronto one week of snow could affect my life so much but oh well! It won’t hold me back from the important things (like going to my friends for Bachelor viewings or going on a quick wine run)!

Much love,

    Everything I’ve tried from Caudalie, I’ve really liked – so I would probably love this product too! I’ve just finished my Omorovicza version of this so I might pick it up!

      The brand is fantastic as well! I’ve tried a few other products on occasion and they’re fantastic, you really can’t go wrong with Caudalie. However this spray really is my all-time fave. Thanks so much for reading! ❤️

      If you’re looking for a simple product that’s easy to incorporate into a routine this is definitely it! Skincare doesn’t have to be super complicated though — when you’re building your routine, keep it as simple with as few steps when you start out! It’ll make it both a lot easier to start, as well as give you time to introduce each product separately so you know if you have a negative reaction to a product you’ll know exactly what product it is. It’s been super trendy lately to have super complicated multi-step skincare routines, but that doesn’t always work for everyone’s skin. Sometimes a simple routine is what’s best — but this is definitely a great toner, even for sensitive skin! Good luck, I hope building your routine goes well ❤️ Thank you so much for taking the time to read, I’m glad you enjoyed it!

      I totally understand — the struggle between wanting to try new products out and not purchasing excessive amounts of skincare products is super real. This is a fantastic brand though, so if you’re ever looking for a new toner/serum to add to your line up I’d totally recommend this one! Thanks for reading love, glad you enjoyed it ❤️
