This is so hyped on YT & with bloggers, I felt like I had to try it. Plus the glass bottle feels so luxe. So I spent $18 & got the small size. For starters, I don't really like the scent. I can't really describe it but it's not something that I find appealing. I also don't notice that it makes any difference in my skin. And finally, just doing 2 spritzes (sp?) every morning makes the product level go down *really* quickly. Even if I did like it, I don't think I could afford to like it for very long.

Now after reading negative reviews due to the ingredients in this product, I'm on the fence about repurchasing this.
- I bought this about 1 1/2 month ago because I couldn't handle my curiousity about it any long. I wanted to try this product out for myself.
- I like the minty scent of it. It really helps me wake up in the morning when I spritz this post-shower pre-moisturizer (focusing on my T-zone)
- My moisturizer and eye cream glide effortlessly after spraying this elixer. Therefore I would say this product has improved the texture of my skin.
- I've only sprayed this before applying makeup. I have yet to try it after applying makeup to set/refresh my face, so I cant comment on the effect it gives
- I havent been using my regular toner since I purchased this, honestly because I'm too lazy to grab a cotton pad. I love this spray, and have been using it day & night therefore I have to repurchase another one really soon.
- I know that ppl have said below that the ingredients are not beneficial or good for the skin, but I personally haven't seen any negative/bad physical results on my skin.
lastly, I WILL be repurchasing this product.

I feel disappointed about this product because Lisa Eldridge likes and recommends it. However, the ingredient list is quite a nightmare: lots of fragants oils blended in alcohol. If you care about your skin, don't use it. Those oils not only have shown no good properties on the skin but are irritant and can promote cell death.
It might smell good, but it's almost like putting an eau de toilette on your face. Spray it on your clothes if you need to use it.

i'm actually pretty surprised that i jumped on the bandwagon for this so late as i'm a big caudalie lover. i guess the price always held me back a bit. i gotta say this really is a lovely product. i use it either between between my serum an moisturiser or after i put my makeup on to give me a lovely glow. surprisingly none of the essential oils irritate my skin and i feel like they help me clear up any zits and blemishes. it feels quite luxurious and indulgent. great multi purpose product that makes you feel like you just had a facial!

I heard rave reviews about this product on YT. And, the impressionable sucker I am, I went out and bought it immediately. I don't regret purchasing this, but I just don't think it's anything special. It's a toner and nothing more. I use it before and after I apply my makeup because it does provide a bit of hydration (nothing more than a normal toner would though) before I apply my primer and then after I set my face with powder products. The smell is quite overpowering, so if you don't care for very strong herbal scents, this probably isn't for you.
i'll use the product up but do not intend to repurchase. There are other less-expensive alternatives out there.

I currently have 2 30ml bottles of this. One in my bathroom and one in my handbag. I use this sometimes in place of a toner, and sometimes to set or de-cake my makeup. It works well on both accounts. It has a strong herbal scent that I really disliked when I first started using it. Now I have grown accustomed to the scent I actually find it refreshing. I can see myself repurchasing this in the future.

I really really like this stuff. I am a big fan of using a mineral water after washing with a micellar solution in the morning, and this is mineral water with a little something else. It smells great, is calming, and wakes you up. However, it is really expensive for what it is. I haven't repurchased for this reason. Having a nice smell and a bit of essential oil doesn't matter when I can either get spray mineral water for $10 CAN which will last 6-8 months, rather than a small bottle of this for $25 which will only last a month or two. I have removed one point just for this. That being said, I would buy it again if I could bring myself to spend the money...

I tried this product after hearing about it alot & then after visiting their website & hearing their story...had to give it a shot.
Things I like about it : I like the consistency. It leaves no residue or oiliness on the skin and absorbs fast. I like the smell - rather organic with quite a heavy peppermint note that I wasnt expecting but its good.
There is nothing quite like how it lifts your spirits when you are feeling anxious, unsettled, tired or a little nausea. Spray this directly to your face or into your hands, rub them together & breath in deep. Excellent. I do a similar/same thing with the Decleor Aromessence Rosed'Orient and it calms & restores.
Things I dont like : I dont like that it has alcohol in it. Alcohol is drying on the skin and with fairly dehydrated/dry skin to begin with, its not the best.
My conclusion : I dont know if this has great results for the skin per se, or if its more for the mind but either way, its a good product to have in your makeup kit/handbag, while traveling/flying and feeling unwell.

Probably the only product of it's kind that I have tried that make my face feel drier than before I applied it. The smell is nice, minty and refreshing, I know lots of people don't like this about it, but it's probably the only thing that I like, how it smells and feels when you spray it.
After it dries down and I have to moisturize my face because it feels so dry the initial fondness dies down. I do continue to use it because I did buy the large bottle and it was expensive, but I won't be rebuying it.

Not a big fan of the herbal smell but I have to admit that this product works well on me. It's like a magical pick-me-up that can give an instant glow on my makeup and my skin even when I'm very tired and sleepy.
Another thing I noticed is that it vaporises so quickly (due to the alchohol) that I don't have enough time to tap it on. Only for this reason I prefer the thermal water.

I bought this product after reading so many good reviews. I found it expensive for a "beauty elixir", so I went for the smaller version that I found.
I still don't know what makes this product so special. I couldn't see any amazing result on me. Actually, I had to stop using it because I found some dry patches on my skin (one of the ingredients is alcohol).
There are products of "thermal water" or similar, better and cheaper than this one.
Anyway, smells very nice, so I usually use it as pre-bedtime fragance, hah!

I was skeptical that this would do anything, but after reading all the French raves, I bought a small Caudalie travel set that included the $18 smaller bottle. Wow, I am shocked at how quick this works and what it does. Upon application, I was not fond of the smell, but it was not awful or anything. After five to ten minutes of spritzing, I noticed that my skin felt calmer. It had been a little red and dry in several spots. I went and looked in the mirror and my skin looked glowing and smooth. All the redness was gone. I will definitely repurchase.

This is just awful....burnig and irritating, too much fragrance,horrible smell, alcohol and fragrance as main ingredients.

I could not resist the hype of this product and went ahead bought it. It comes in a glass bottle, the cap is sealed ie. the top of the spray nozzle cannot be removed.
The first time I used it, I opened my eyes right after I sprite and it stung my eyes. You should wait few seconds before opening your eyes after spritzing your face. The scent is very strongly herbal, very similar to Tiger Balm Ė not very fond of it. I use it during the day to freshen up but i donít think I noticed any improvement, whether in mood or skin condition (i used almost half a 30ml bottle). The mist is very fine though, which is great as it would not ruin your makeup.
I would not repurchase.

This is a great item to sprits on your face for a mid day pick me up. You can use this under or over your make up. When your make up is looking a little dull in the middle of the day, spray this on your face and it will look like you re applied and through some highlighter on as well. Whenever I am in the car with a girlfriend and we are heading out, I spray this on in the car. Almost always I am asked what that smell is, only to be followed by a "can I try it?" Of course I always oblige.
i have since then gotten a few friends onto this product. The boyfriend even enjoys a sprits or two every now and then.
Packaging is great. Price is a bit much but depending on how much you use this product it can have a purse life of a couple months. i always buy the small one and keep it in my purse. The drier your face is, the more you will use...The oiler, not so much.

This is the only product i have ever, ever used which has made my skin break out in spots. For the first week i didn't see any good or bad results from using it but i perservered in the hope that i would find out why there is so much hype around it. That was a mistake.
After the first week 3 huge, painful and swollen spots broke out, 2 down the sides of the bridge of my nose and 1 on my forehead. I've never had anything like it, my face has never ever been so irritated and they took forever to go down. At first i didn't know what was causing them so i kept using the beauty elixir but 2 or 3 more (smaller) spots popped over over the following 2 weeks. I read by chance somewhere that a lot of people can experience skin irritations from essential oils (there are a number in this!) so deided to lay off the elixir for a while and see if that helped. Within a week the spots were gone (although 2 have left marks - grrr) and i've never had any since, which is how my skin usually is as I probably get a spot about 3 times a year, if that.
I've never had a problem with any skincare (including some other Caudalie products) or makeup line before and i do not have sensitive skin, there is just obiously something in this which does not work for me (be it one of the essential oils or something else). I'm not too disappointed because it wasn't doing me any great favours before the breakout.
Unlike a lot of other reviewers, i did actually quite like the smell as i found it to be quite refreshing. Maybe i'll use it as a foot or hand refresher or something?!!

This really is like spraying your face with eau de toilette. I'm a big fan of Caudalie in general but for me this item is a real loser in their line. The scent is really overpowering and the spray is not as fine of a mist as I think it should be for spraying the face. Again, it seems better suited for application of body fragrance.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
After all the hype about this product, I had to give it a try. And I'm so glad that I did, I'm now using it every day on my sensitive skin, and I love the freshness feeling that it gives me, not to mention the divine smell! It really made a difference on the appearance of my skin (it looks more radiant), and I will definitely buy it again.

Picked this up - the smaller size, to try it out - at Sephora a few weeks ago and I'm really not impressed. In terms of a hydrating spray, I find that The Body Shop's Vitamin E spray or Mac Fix + are every bit as good and cost a lot less. As a setting product, I'll take Clarins Fix Makeup or Urban Decay All Nighter over this stuff any day of the week.
Some expensive products offer good value because they deliver (an example for me would be Hourglass primer); Beauty Elixir is pricey but doesn't offer good value for me because I have other products that do a better job or cost less or both.
