Frequently, I talk about brands that I like, but very rarely, do I shout about the ones I adore. J'adore Caudalie. Throwback to the days of SpaceNK, I would be seen spritzing Beauty Elixir at least every 10 minutes, on myself, my colleagues or of course, on the customers. Caudalie, is one of the ONLY brands that I have never been disappointed by. So when I was invited to attend the launch of the new Polyphenol C15 range you can only imagine my delight!
French woman are beautiful. You cannot fault that statement. They take care of their appearance in a way British women can only wish they could. Be it a school run or running to the grocery store, the French just do it immaculately, a hair not out of place. Their secret? I am not entirely sure, but Caudalie opened my eyes to what the answer could be. Continue reading, you will not want to miss this.
Tucked away in Covent Garden, quietly sits the new Caudalie Boutique & Spa. I had been dying to visit, and walking through the doors I instantly fell in love with the place. If you haven't been, I urge that you do.
So let's get down to business. Polyphenol C15, what are you and WHY do I need you in my life?
Wrinkles, we've heard of these, but what causes them? Free. Bloody. Radicals. Free radicals attack the skin, breaking down our cells, causing us to look haggard and old. Unfortunately, we cannot escape free radicals, but we can improve our defense system, with a little help from some powerful grapes.
Caudalie derive their amazing skin care from grapes. Literally everything from the stem, to the skin, to the seeds and juicy goodness gets poured into their products. Polyphenol C15 is a combination of the antioxidant packed grapes and stabilized Vitamin C. The perfect anti-aging, wrinkle fighting cocktail.
Before I got to play around with these #AntiOx infused products we were introduced to a nutritionist, Sybille Gebhardt. I knew she was French before she spoke, yup you guessed it, she was beautiful and skin - FLAWLESS. Sybille explained you can look after yourself on the inside as well as the outside to help fight against these free radicals. She showed us how to make a beautiful chocolate mousse and a detox drink, all using completely natural ingredients. I went home that night and ordered a NutriBullet, I kid you not.
I was also thrilled to find out Sybille is a yoga teacher and she specialises in teaching you to become your own osteopath at a place called The Light Centre. I haven't been yet as I haven't had the time, but I will definitely be stopping by in the near future. Yoga is a passion of mine and I am very much looking forward to trying her class.
A serum, a moisturiser and an eye cream make up this fabulous range, and I promise you will love them. They carry the typical Caudalie fragance, which is gorgeous if you don't know that already, and feel amazing on the skin. I particularly love the serum, and I have been using it for a week now and I have seen a huge difference. My skin was beginning to look dull and sluggish, but in the last few days it is brighter and firmer, and just sooo much better than before. I got these little mini versions to keep, which I believe to be THE best size for travelling with and will come in handy as I travel back and forth between here and Mallorca over the Summer. Did I mention the moisturiser has an SPF 20? Well there you go.
Why not try this range for yourself, you can pick up an AntiOx box from Caudalie for just £15 online and in stores now. As well as samples of the new range, you get a recipe and a stress ball!
This launch was one of my favorites so far, I walked away feeling inspired and it isn't often a brand has that affect on me. It is so important that we look after ourselves on the inside and the outside and it is comforting to know that we have brands that genuinely understand this. Caudalie thank you for having me, it was an absolute pleasure.
