I write this review with my tail between my legs (not literally!) If you've read my Caudalie Beauty Elixir review then you'll know I was on the fence about whether I loved it or not at that time.
Well in the midst of making my decision I saw a blog or You Tube video on the Caudalie Grape Water and when I looked it up it seemed like it was a facial spray that 'soothes and moisturises' which vaguely sounded like the Beauty Elixir but it was a much larger sized bottle for the same price as the small Elixir. Now I realise this logic doesn't quite make sense but at that time I just thought the Beauty Elixir was a refreshing spray with a nice smell.
As soon as the bottle arrived I realised that I'd made a mistake. The differences between the two were immediately apparent. Firstly the Grape Water is pressurised mist where as the Beauty Elixir is in a regular bottle with a spray. When you spray the Beauty Elixir you have a wave of herbs and mint wash over you where at the Grape Water is virtually fragrance free. Even the consistency of the Grape Water is literally water where as the Beauty Elixir is a slightly thicker.
The bottom line is... Caudalie Beauty Elixir is literally a water spray that you could just use to cool down with or perhaps as a toner. I honestly don't think it offers much in terms of hydration but that might just be my skin. I would keep this in my car or on my dressing table for a quick refresh but that's pretty much it as it's a massive 200ml bottle!
I have since repurchased the large sized Caudalie Beauty Elixir.
