The best sunscreen for those with acne prone skin! I cannot begin to tell you what a blessing this product is. I generally detest all sunscreens because they cause massive breakouts all over my skin but this one doesn't!!! Buy this is you want a sunscreen without clogged pores!!
Treatments (Eye) -Skinceuticals - topical vitamin-c eye gel

Ok first and foremost, this is a preventative product and is geared more for younger skin or skin that does not have fine lines or has few fine lines. If you are looking for a corrective cream, use the AGE complex as it is designed for more mature skin. I am 28 and just beginning to become serious about my skincare. This product acts like the aox serum 10, 15, and 20 in the sense that it blocks free radicals. I love that once it sinks into your skin, it cannot be washed off and lasts 72 hours! This sinks into the skin within 5 minutes of applying and is not sticky or tacky. For your own good, stick this in the fridge so that it was last longer. This serum has taken off about 5 yrs of premature aging due to inflammation and sun damage. I highly recommend this product for anyone who is looking to stop premature aging. I use this under Caudalie's first wrinkle cream and I look like I did when I was 23 yrs old.
Treatments -Skinceuticals - Serum 10 AOX with Ferulic

I have to state that I have been using this serum for 5 weeks and I absolutely love this product when I use it with the Blemish+Age Defense and the Hydrating B5 gel. I have sensitive acne prone skin with mild rosecea and this combo seems to help restore balance to my skin. This contains the lowest amount of vitamin c, and is intended for people with more problematic skin. It doesn't seem to sting my skin even after I apply the Blemish+Age Defense. My skin is smoother and the acne scars, freckles, and hyperpigmentation all are beginning to fade. My friends and family have noticed the difference in the overall clarity of my skin. Since I have started this regiment, I have been carded at every restaurant and bar (my friends are the same age and they don't get carded)! It has seriously taken off about five years of premature aging due to inflammation and sun damage in this five week period. Needless to say, I never leave my house without using these products and look forward to cleansing my skin, even when I am extremely tired. I am also looking to incorporate the .5 retinol to keep my skin looking youthful and healthy. If you have similar skin, I highly recommend that you give this a shot.
This is an effective moisturizer by itself if you have the following skin types: Sensitive, acne prone, oily, or if you have rosecea. If you have normal to dry, better add this to your moisturizer to give it a boost. I have sensitive acne prone skin with a mild case of rosecea and it is just enough moisturizer for me without driving my skin nuts! I often find that most moisturizers leave me dry or really oily, or cause breakouts; but this doesn't! The only thing I don't like is the price tag. I use this over Skinceuticals Serum 10 AOX and I am loving my skin again.
Hg product! I use this for eye makeup and makeup removal and wish that caudalie would make a wipe form of this so I could take it to the yoga studio with me!! Sometimes when I am really tired or lazy I just use this as a cleanser and find it hydrating gentle and extremely effective.
I love this product during the summer and early fall months of the year when my skin is oilier due to living in hell's sauna aka Phoenix AZ. It is gentle and effective and works well with the cleansing water and the purifying treatment. I think that Caudalie is a great line for cleansers and body products, but needs to seriously improve their moisturizers! 2011 EDIT: I have discontinued use of this product due to hormonal acne and have switched over to Rhonda Allison's Pumpkin cleanser with better results. had to remove a few lippies... :(
Okay this product is designed for those with dry skin, and should be excellent for those combo skin girls during the winter months. I use this in conjunction with the instant foaming cleanser in the down time from kinerase pro+therapy skin smoothing cleanser April through early November and solo December through March. If you have combo skin/oily only use this in the cold/dry months as it may be too rich for your skin type. EDIT: Had to remove a few lippies becuz this is causing breakouts! :(
I love this product, it's a pick me up for my skin! I don't use it as a toner in the tradition sense, I use it after I put my makeup on, and in the middle of the day to cut back on oil, or on the days when I don't wear makeup. I always bring it with me when I travel to places with humid climates!!
Lotions/ Creams -Caudalie - Creme Gourmande - Hand and Nail Cream

I have lived in Arizona for the past two yrs, and I have been on a mission to find the most effective moisturizers for this weather, and let me tell you, I have tried everything. My search for an hg hand cream ended with this little miracle! I put this on in the morning before I go to work and wash my hands frequently and my hands remain soft and hydrated throughout the day despite the heat and the constant hand washing! It is not greasy at all and is worth every penny!! HG for sure- I also use it on my neck and feet and it has worked miracles!!'
This is my hg cleanser! I have sensitve congested skin and this product is the only cleanser that I have used that rids the skin of excess oil dirt and dead skin without stripping it's moisture and does not cause redness. Unfortunately, you can only use it for a few weeks and then use their gentle cleanser for a few weeks and then go back on it. I personally cannot stand the gentle cleanser and use caudalie's foaming cleanser during the off phase. EDIT: I have taken off a few lippies because this is no longer effective on my skin. :(
One of my all time favorite products! At first I was a little concerned about putting oil on my face, but this product changed my mind and my skin for the better. A must have for women with sensitive congested skin! My only concern with the product is the packaging- I have spilt the bottle too many times!
I was introduced to this lovely fragrance by an expert nose; she told me to come in to the store with no fragrance on so she could smell my feramones- spelling? And match a fragrance that would compliment them... She chose this beautiful scent for me, and so began my love affair. I receive many compliments from both men and women when I wear this scent because it isn't an overwhelming floral mess or a spicy screaming scent that should be worn in a club. This scent is lovely and is always appropriate and lasts all day. A year round must have!!
Fragrances -Acqua di Parma - Blu Mediterraneo Fico di Amalfi

I think that I am in the minority here, because I think this scent is absolutely stunning. At first the fragrance opens up as a lively citrus summertime scent, and soon develops into a lovely clean green elegant fragrance. I am not a huge fan of citrus, and love how the scent evolves into a fig and cedar clean scent. The major disappointment with this perfume is the fact that it only comes as an eau de toilette, so it doesn't have the lasting power, but it is nevertheless breathtaking and intoxicating!
I am always reluctant to spritz floral scents on my skin because I prefer either clean or oriental notes, but this particular fragrance has changed my life. It is timeless, elegant, and classy- I would go so far as to say that it is a modern Chanel #5. Always appropriate and ultra-feminine.
Fragrances -Estee Lauder - Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche Skinscent

I have been searching for a fragrance that captures the very essence of a California summer and this one delivers! Finally Estee Lauder has created a scent for women under the age of 60!!! This fragrance is fun without smelling like candy mixed with a cocktail like all those other awful 'summer' fragrances (rocking rio, ibiza). I plan on stocking up on this one, because it is out for a limited time!
