CAUDALIE Beauty Elixir & other great face sprays


Over the summer I have really gotten into face sprays. I used to find them more drying than hydrating, but have recently found quite a few that I am really enjoying.

This one by Caudalie is one of my absolute favourites, it’s incredibly uplifting and hydrating due to the peppermint oil and mint balm leaf oil – perfect for hot weather. Beware though, this stuff really packs a punch – keep eyes closed when spraying, peppermint = ouch! It contains grape extract (as is typical to the range), orange flower water, rosemary and rose extract – all wonderful for toning, hydrating and strengthening the skin. It can be used at toner stage before moisturiser, to set makeup, or to refresh skin any time of the day – a total boost whenever you need it.

It’s available in 2 sizes 30ml (£11.50) and 100ml (£32) and is available at (and many other online retailers and SpaceNK). Escentual have a great selection of french pharmacy brands, and often have great discounts – so check them out.

Here are some other great facial sprays that I am really enjoying using:

Susanne Kaufmann Harmonising Moisturising Spray – the most hydrating of them all, really soft and fresh and floral – leaves skin dewy and nourished. £30, 75ml at Liberty London.

La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water – cooling, soothing and full of minerals. Perfect for any time of day. £3.50 – £7.50 at

La Roche-Posay Serozinc (not shown) – a cooling spray perfect for after an acid tone (with PIXI Glow Tonic, or First Aid Beauty pads – both pictured). This product contains zinc sulphate, great for people with oily or blemish prone skin, but doesn’t dry out my dehydrated skin. £8.50 at 

Caudalie Grape water – great after an acid tone. Perfect fine spray – super refreshing, and excellent value –  £6-£10 at

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist – if you love rose, you will love this! 100ml, £24 at

Happy spritzing! x
