Why We Love The Caudalie Beauty Elixir

The iconic Caudalie Beauty Elixir turns 20 this month, and even after two decades of cult-status, the beauty enhancing mist is showing no signs of dropping off our radar!

First released in 1997, the idea behind the Caudalie Beauty Elixir first came to Caudalie Founder, Mathilde Thomas when discovering a historical recipe for the ‘elixir of youth’ prepared for Queen Isabelle of Hungary in the 16th century. Inspired by the idea of a modern woman’s elixir, Mathilde created her own interpretation, which is the Caudalie Beauty Elixir we know and love today.

To celebrate its milestone birthday and ingenious formula, Caudalie has unveiled a golden limited edition bottle that has major dressing table appeal. A collaboration with Supermodel and Actress, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, this special edition bottle is perfect whether you’re discovering the Beauty Elixir for the very first time or are well overdue another bottle.

It’s clear that the Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a thing of beauty, just look at that packaging! But, you’re probably wondering what makes this mist so magical. So, let me tell you…

100% Natural 

The Caudalie Beauty Elixir is 100% natural, so you can rest assured that there are no parabens or preservatives in sight. The loved formula is also vegan-friendly, meaning all can enjoy its radiance-enhancing powers.


This is where the Caudalie Beauty Elixir excels! The elixir contains a blend of essential oils, each with their own unique skin-enhancing action. Ingredients include hydrating orange blossom, toning rose, radiance-enhancing grape and pore-minimizing astringent myrrh. Benzoin essential oil gives the mist its instantly recognisable scent, whilst essential oils of organic lemon balm, rosemary and mint boost the complexion, immediately refreshing skin and leaving pores visibly tightened, and the features smoothed.



How we use it

There’s one thing you need to know about the Caudalie Beauty Elixir: it’s a major multitasker! It will fit into your morning routine, be your go-to throughout the day and make its way into your nighttime routine too. Here are some of our favourite ways to use it…

As a wake-up spray…

There’s nothing better in the morning than a few spritz of this refreshing mist! Infused with invigorating notes of benzoin and myrrh, the mist will bring an instant sense of calm – what a great wake up call!

To set makeup…

Right after applying your foundation spritz the Caudalie Beauty Elixir over the skin, to set makeup for hours. This action will also help to stop foundation looking cakey or heavy.

After makeup removal…

One of my favourite ways to use the Caudalie Beauty Elixir is as a toner. An excellent way to purify the complexion after makeup removal, the elixir will help to tighten pores, promote radiance and hydrate overnight.

For a mid-day pick-me-up…

Whether you’re in the office, out and about in the city or have just finished a workout, the Caudalie Beauty Elixir is an ideal way to revitalise the skin. Packed full of skin-loving ingredients, the elixir is an easy way to keep skin looking happy and healthy, wherever you are.
