CAUDALIE Spa Favorites Set Review

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I wanted to give you guys a quick pick-me-up gift idea - from Sephora. Its the Caudalie Spa Favorites Gift Set. It retails for C$35 and makes a great gift for anyone you love or for yourself (like, I did).
This set is a great value for what you get. It includes 4 full sized products - truly a $67 value!
Its an incredible price, if you want a non greasy, high quality hand and foot cream and a lip balm that actually stays on and a great surprise - the Beauty Elixir!

CAUDALIE Spa Favorites Set 
CAUDALIE SPA FAVORITES SET contains:

  • Foot Beauty Cream (75ml)
  • Hand and Nail Cream (75ml)
  • Beauty Elixir (30 ml)
  • Lip Conditioner (4.5 gm)

I picked this up during the time, when my hands, lips and feet were uber dry and I wanted something close to nature, paraben free and vegan friendly - Caudalie, as a brand, stood out to me. All their products are plant based with no parabens, animal derived raw materials or other toxins.
CAUDALIE Spa Favorites Set - Lip Conditioner, Foot Beauty Cream, Hand and Nail Cream & Beauty Elixir

This is a completely non greasy formula that quickly absorbs in skin and makes hands feel softer and smoother, instantly. I am totally in love with it. I use it at night time and my hands stay moisturized till morning. Its formulated with grape antioxidants and shea butter that also treats the nails and its got a light fragrance, that I enjoy.

Before getting this, my usual foot rescue was a nice exfoliation with Microderm360 followed by body butter. It was working fine, until I realized by feet were obnoxiously dry and it needed a little something! So, this cream, has really been what I wanted. Moisturizes without the grease. I do not need to wear socks to avoid the mess on the floors or anywhere. It also quickly absorbs in skin. 
Since, it has a thicker texture, I do take some time to massage it in and I do not remember reapplying it, throughout the day. That's so cool. 


LIP CONDITIONER ($12 FOR 4.5ml)

This is again, an amazing product. Its stays on all night long and keeps lips moisturized. It does take some time to absorb, so I find it best for night time. I honestly, do not have chapped lips anymore!! Thats amazing! Its made with amazing ingredients which is something, I really respect Caudalie for and I would love to try their skincare products!

CAUDALIE BEAUTY ELIXIR ($19 for 30ml) 
Finally, a part-toner, part-serum - the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. I had never heard of this before, but it is such an amazing product. It's basically a face mist which quickly bathes your skin in plant active ingredients and essential oils.
I use it so much that I am done with it in 3 weeks and I have to get a new one. After cleansing my face, I quickly spritz it all over my face, with my eye shut and let it soak it - usually takes about 30 sec and then, I follow up with my moisturizer. My skin feels fresh and stays hydrated all day long. When ever, I feel a little dull, I just spray this on and its soooo refreshing.
I also spray this over my makeup to set it, or if I feel that my t-zone looks flaky, I spray it there. Its just a wonderful, multi-use product.
I also felt that it reduces redness on skin and did not break me out at all - even though, my skin is pretty sensitive these days. For me, this product literally blew me away and being part of this gift set, its just amazing.
I have replaced my serum and toner with this.

Overall, these products are quite amazing - they are formulated with plant based ingredients are paraben free and infused with antioxidants. There is nothing that I do not like about this set. It's priced right and definitely makes a great gift for a loved one.
