Discovering CaudalÍe For Christmas

Discovering Caudalíe for Christmas


Caudalíe for christmas


One of my favourite things to find under the tree on Christmas morning is something beauty related, preferably at the luxury end of the scale as it feels like such a treat. A product from a favourite brand or one I’ve always wanted to try but never gotten around to buying myself is always welcome.

After all the hullabaloo of organising the Holiday Season, the early wake up call on the big day itself and a frenzied flurry of present opening, there’s nothing better than slinking off to the bathroom with said beauty treats to enjoy a quiet moment before the rest of the day ensues.

So when Caudalíe asked if I’d like to partner with them to try out a couple of their festive gifts, I jumped at the chance of a Christmas morning in the bathroom session come early!

First on my Dear Santa Beauty List was the Jason Wu For Caudalíe Beauty Elixir – a bottle dressed in its finest monochrome by Jason Wu makes for a very stylish bathroom shelf. Style aside, lets get to the substance.

This pore tightening solution is perfect for those days when skin needs an under makeup boost. Yes, I’m looking at you post Holiday party hangover. This one just might need to be a permanent party season addition!

Winter skin needs extra nourishment and I find the need for yet more moisture seems to have increased year upon year as I’ve gone through my forties. If the skin asks, then the skin must be fed.

A gift set at Christmas is a great value way of trying on a new brand for size and the Vine Body Butter Luxury Gift Set is no exception. Perfect for winter and delivering nourishment and protection for hands, lips and body all in one pretty box, this collection of products is a great way to discover Caudalíe for Christmas.

The Body Butter smells like a delicious pot of whipped citrus dessert – I love it’s subtle fragrance. Even better is the effect it has on bare legs peeping out from a party dress – raspy winter skin be gone!

And the handy sized Lip Conditioner and Hand & Nail Cream have now taken up residence in my bag as my on-the-go winter skin saviour favourites.

I think the only thing that would make this Christmas morning bathroom routine a little more sparkly would be the customary glass of Veuve Clicquot that goes with our traditional festive breakfast!

I loved reading the story of how Caudalíe came to be, starting in the vineyards on a family estate in Bordeaux and what the word itself actually means.

A caudalíe [kodalí] is a unit measuring the duration of the wine’s flavour on the palate. For each second the flavour remains, this is a caudalíe. A quality wine will contain many caudalíes. Making that glass of Christmas morning champagne even more appropriate I think!

Have you tried anything from the range yet and will you be asking Santa for some Caudalíe for Christmas this year?
