Review: Jason Wu for Caudalie Beauty Elixir & Caudalie Resveratrol [Lift] Face Lifting Soft Cream #JasonWu #BeautyElixir #Caudalie #ResveratrolLift

Ever since I first lived in Paris, I've loved Caudalie skincare. In Paris you can get in the pharmacies. In the USA it's very exclusive. Recently I tried two products from Caudalie that are pretty good. One is a spray elixir and the other is a lifting moisturizer.

3.4 fl.oz./100mL $49.00
 
Fashion Designer Jason Wu loves Beauty Elixir so much he collaborated with Caudalie create a stunning limited edition bottle for his cult favorite so that it would be backstage at all of his fashion shows, with his makeup artists. The many benefits of this beauty-enhancing mist makes it the secret of the stars and their make-up artists. It tightens pores, smooths away fine lines, gives a huge boost of radiance and sets makeup. To use: spray onto the face, avoiding the eyes. Use before your moisturizer and at any time of the day to wake up the skin. Shake before use. Tip: backstage at runway shows, professional apply it between foundation and powder to set make-up. For an even more refreshing effect, place your elixir in the refrigerator before use. Beauty Elixir was inspired by the "Elixir of Youth" used by Queen Isabelle of Hungary.  

I love the scent of Beauty Elixir. And I love how it makes my skin feel after I apply it. It makes it feel awake and alive. There is a refreshing feeling to the mist, it sets makeup and it definitely gives skin a boost of radiance. Using this to set makeup and as a final touch is nice.




1.7 fl.oz./50mL $76.00
This anti-aging day cream for dry skin is a very lightweight, soft cream that deeply nourishes, smooth wrinkles and redensifies skin via moisturization in a single step. Skin ends up looking lifted and more youthful. This cream firms, reduces wrinkles, nourishes and acts as if it is a second skin. In a test, *100% of women were shown to have firmer skin; *88% had more redensified skin and *93% were shown to have lifted skin. (*clinical test of 42 women in 84 days of daily application, % of satisfaction) Apply the cream in the morning, avoid the eye contour area. Works well under makeup. To maximize anti-aging benefits, apply the cream evenly and massage in with fingertips. This cream has a nice matte finish. 

The secret of the formula is the their breakthrough patent, co-files with Harvard Medical School, that combines 2 proven ingredients, firming Vine Resveratrol and plumping Micro Hyaluronic Acids. Together they teach your skin how to act young again. Vine Resveratrol resculpts and firms skin. Micro Hyaluronic Acid plumps and smooths wrinkles. The result is lifted, nourishes skin that has more youthful contours. 

This cream does work. Skin ends up looking amazing. My only gripe is that an anti-aging day cream it does not have a sunscreen in it! It is very light and airy, and sinks right into the skin, so most people could likely handle a light sunscreen on top of this cream. However, I think it is better to just formulate the creams with sunscreen in them. I sometimes wear this cream alone under a SPF 30 foundation. Usually I wear a lot of foundation. Resveratrol is well known in the anti-aging world for its great effects on the skin. As is hyaluronic acid. Both are very good at helping in anti-aging creams.
