Enjoy your Moment in the Sun With Caudalie Sun Care Line
My favourite products from Caudalie Sun Care line are:
Anti-wrinkle Face Suncare SPF50 protection and skincare rolled into one. I love multi-tasking products and Caudalie has nailed the SPF game with this light and creamy formula that utilizes organic products like grape water that nourish and protect the skin while saving the environment as well. Built-in skincare products retain the youthful look of your skin while offering sun protection. SPF for the face is non-sticky, doesn’t leave a white cast and it’s safe for skin and nature thanks to its non-toxic, non-nano formula. I also love the smell and the packaging of the line a lot.
Suncare Oil SPF30 is ideal for those who can’t get enough of that tan. The grape oil rich formula ensures maximum UV protection while providing a natural radiance boost. The texture feels so luxurious and is not greasy at all. It leaves nice flattering shine on the body. I would recommend to use it if you want to look great in the bikini as it elongating legs and enhancing the decolletage. It has UVA/UVB filters. On holiday, I was applying this to my legs long after the sun went down!
If you want to make that tan last long Caudalie Tan Prolonging After-Sun Lotion is your best bet. This coconut oil, grape water, and aloe infused formula will transport you to your tropical vacation every time. It cools skin and helps with repairs on damages. It’s also non-sticky has velvety texture and is easily absorbed. It’s a true Summer 2021 Beauty Must-Have product that I swear by.
Dip Your Toes (and the rest of your body) in Water. Review of Vinosource Line by Caudalie.
This line is a liquid gold and I love it since I tried it. I have sensitive and dry skin and it works wonder on me. Line consist of 7 products ideal for day and night skincare. I tried 2 products and I am sure that rest of the line is equally amazing.
S.O.S THIRST-QUENCHING SERUM VINOSOURCE-HYDRA is God send for your summer parched skin. Infused with organic aloe and peach extracts, this gel is formulated to enhance the skin hydration to leave your skin dewy, supple, moist, and fresh. Nail that sun-kissed glow with a radiant 100-watt skin with this cult-favorite moisturizer. I apply it couple times a day, as it’s very light and texture is smooth and absorbs in seconds.
Main benefits according the brand:
- Captures and continuously diffuses water
- Restores balance and moisture to the skin
- Rehydrates & refreshes
It has rehydrating active ingredients which restores hydration even on dehydrated skin.
Other products that I recommend are:
Oil Yourself Up with new scent of iconic Huile Prodigieuse by Nuxe.
Nuxe in 2021 is celebrating the 30th anniversary of this iconic product. New Huile Prodigieuse Néroli is product launches especially for this occasion. Cherry on the top is that this product is organic certified and vegan. Scents includes notes of Neroli, Bergamot and Lavandin and is made with high concentration of organic plum and sesame oils.
Huile Prodigieuse promises to stimulate your senses completely. Add a few drops to your moisturizer for that dewy summer look. Rub it onto your body in soft circular motions; enjoy the indulging experience of inimitable dry touch formula and the luxurious blend of intoxicating perfumes. The formula is loved for it repairing benefits especially for stretch marks.
If your hair need some deep conditioning, massage it into the hair 10 minutes before shampooing and then towel dry. Say bonjour to soft, silky, and nourished summer tresses. The best thing about this oil is that it can easily transition from summer to winter making it a sturdy favourite for your shelfie all year round!
Clean Skin with Patyka DETOX CHARCOAL MASK
The DETOX Charcoal mask from Patyka Paris is musk that surprised me and it was a positive surprise. I tried a multiple amount of charcoal masks and they all had thick texture, dried my skin and smelled rather not welcoming 🙂 This product is completely different. It has a nice, pleasant smell, contains charcoal, green clay and algae extract. Texture is more clay, gel, light and creamy more than thick. It can be left on a skin a bit longer without drying the skin. After rising the mask my skin is purified, glowing and soft. Most of impurities are gone. As all Patyka products is it an organic certified mask, so you can stay assured that quality is amazing.
