As you can see from this photo, I really like Caudalie Crème Gommante Douce and not just because it is French.
I better explain: I lived in Paris for a year during my studies and fell in love with the French culture. I regularly try to get my fix by visiting France at least once a year and buying as many French magazines at the Relay store as my little arms can carry. Then I can read all about the latest fashion and beauty trends from the oh-so-chic Parisians. If there’s one thing I know about the French besides the fact that they go on strike – a lot – they take their beauty regime seriously. You’d therefore expect their products to be top-notch and Caudalie is no exception.
This ‘buffing cream’ gently exfoliates away the dead skin on my face without leaving it dry and sensitive. Containing jojoba microbeads, grape-seed oil and honey, it is a skin-friendly combination of cleansing and purifying ingredients.
The scent isn’t floral but a clean smell – you know kind of like freshly laundered sheets or fresh air. I simply love the feeling and smell of my face after I have massaged this product into my skin and washed it off with tepid water.
And I like to think my complexion looks better, even if that may not be the case. It certainly helps with breakouts around my chin and nose that I am still suffering with at 30!
One think I really should mention about this scrub and all of the Caudalie products is that they are 100% paraben- and mineral oil-free. This means they are less likely to irritate those with sensitive skin.
Soft and gentle, Caudalie Crème Gommante Douce is a real winner in my book and it’s high time I ordered some more.
Have you tried any Caudalie products?
