If you take good care of yourself you would probably know a French cosmetic brand Caudalie whom are well known for their wine cosmetics. I first encountered Caudalie a little more than 5 years ago. I love their toners and hand creams, and all beauty bloggers keep talking about Caudalie products. For all the good reason, I should add. However, it was quite difficult to find Caudalie products in Barcelona. Luckily, this has recently changed. Caudalie open an office in center of Barcelona on the corner of Passeig de Gràcia and Gran Via.

I was invited to the opening. The event was just perfect, so simple yet elegant and refined. I really like the space that Caudalie picked for their offices. It is so graceful: fretwork, high ceilings, parquet floor and huge windows with wonderful views of Gran Via.

The opening coincided with launches of a couple new limited edition products. Caudalie “Agua de Belleza” (Beauty Elixir). This elixir is a product of collaboration of two creative leaders: Mathilde Thomas (Caudalie Director) and L’Wren Scott (model and fashion designer).

“Agua de Bellesa” is a beauty spray. The packaging is wonderful and is really comfortable if you travel. You can chose between two formats: 30 ml and 100 ml. The main ingredients are grape, orange blossom, mint and rosemary. The ingredients make up a wonderful aroma that has a very fresh scent that is similar to the “king of alcohol free fragrances” TOUS, that I really like. Mint and Rosemary are very good for irritated and delicate skin. Orange blossom scent is the perfect remedy for stress and winter blues.

Caudalie mist smoothes away fine lines, tightens pores, gives the complexion an instant boost of radiance and helps set make-up. I use it as a make up set-up, my skin is quite shiny so the elixir helps me to fix my make up longer and the scent fits my Diptique perfume. On weekends I like to use “Agua de Belleza” just as body spray and perfume as it helps me not to overload my daily image.

“Agua de Belleza” was not the only surprize from Caudalie opening but that’s a story for another day so stay tuned…
