Any amount of time on this blog will scream what a Caudalie fangirl I am, and I stand by this unabashedly. 

This was the serum I was using between my depression at finishing off my Estee Lauder ANR and contemplating another bottle of the elixir, and The Body Shop's Drops of Youth


This comes in a lovely, luxuriously weighty glass bottle.


It's great that the pump actually dispenses a good amount of product. I'd say 2 pumps would do it for your whole face and neck if you are on the combi/dry end of things. Personally, I stuck with 1 pump in the morning, and 2 at night. 



The formulation on this is lovely because it's extremely light and sinks in as soon as it touches your skin. You'll feel an immediate boost of hydration and plumping. It doesn't hurt that it smells absolutely lovely as well. 

Retailing at RM150, it's decidedly cheaper than ANR, but rather on part with Nutriganics. So, would I buy this again? I did like it, but I doubt I'd pick it up again simply because the former two catch my fancy a lot more. This would be great if you are on the drier scale because it did make me a tad shinier than I would like because it is so hydrating and moisturising. If you have dry skin, you will absolutely adore this because it will soothe your skin almost immediately and plump it up.

All in all, a fantastic serum in its own right, but I can't escape my love for ANR and Nutriganics enough to justify another purchase of the stuff. However, this definitely comes in at a very close 2nd (ANR and Nutriganics are on par). 

Caudalie is available at Kensapothecary and Sephora.

  1. I don't know what it is about Caudalie that has not made me leap for it but I think I read that it was once being sued by Catherine Zeta Jones who was upset for them mentioning that she was an enthusiast when she never did make any such claim.

    Not that I care what Catherine uses as I don't think she has actually aged well anyway but I guess the idea of this silly lawsuit has just stuck in my mind and all I associate with Caudalie is THAT legal spittle and not the wonderful skincare products everyone keeps mentioning. Rather awful way to overshadow your good name, don't you think?

    Anyway, this was a totally irrelevant thing to say but that's the first thing that comes to mind when I hear the name Caudalie. Forgive my madness.

    1. Hahaha whenever I hear her name I think of lawsuits as well because one of the first cases I studied was that of her and Michael Douglas suing Hello! for publishing pictures of their wedding. Quite the litigious couple!
