The Story Behind Caudalie
Mathilda and her husband in 1993 believed that their vines and grapes possessed exceptional powers for the skin. By creating a skincare range on this basis, the couple went on to develop the power of these vines and grapes into an internationally known brand.
In 1995 they registered a patent for extracting and stabilising grape-seed Polyphenols and created the Caudalie brand.
Here is a little bit more about those hero products:
This Beauty Elixir is to be applied between foundation and powder. Designed to tighten pores and enhance radiance, it is hugely popular at Bath & Unwind. Its minty fragrance gives it that fresh and ready for the day ahead feeling. We like to keep one of these in our handbags, on our desks and in the bathroom so we can reapply for optimal results throughout the day. To “powder your nose” is only half of it.
Inspired by the ‘elixir of youth’ used by Queen Isabelle of Hungary.
A good cleanser is paramount in a daily routine and this Foaming Cleanser Fleur De Vigne knows how to perform. It is in fact a Bath & Unwind best seller! Without using parabens or oily minerals this is the prefect cleanser for even the most oily of skin types, it will not dry the skin out, nor will it become tight or dehydrated.
The thick creamy consistency makes for the prefect deep cleanse ensuring every pore is gently touched with just one pump. Completing this routine twice a day will remove all dirt and make up from the face, leaving the skin feeling fresh and plump.
Caudalie say grape-seed Polyphenols are the most powerful antioxidant in the plant world.
The first signs of ageing is usually visible on the face, specifically the dreaded crows feet and bags under the eyes. So to stop the constant worry of this becoming a reality. Caudalie have created the ultimate elixir that will correct dark circles, decrease the appearance of wrinkles, brighten up and give the eye contour radiance and firmness. It can be used alone if make up is not your thing, or can be blended with your usual foundation.
15ml may seem extremely small, you only need a tiny drop of it on each eye, 5oz should last a fairly long time. If used everyday it should last up to 3 months.
