Face mists. I’ve a new-found love for them. The cause is as a result of I’ve included misting into my day by day skincare routine for some time now. I exploit an acid toner, and misting after that helps rehydrate my pores and skin and helps my merchandise take in higher.
Some time in the past, I acquired a can of the Caudalie Grape Water spray, however mistook it for the Beauty Elixir (which I’m not a lot a fan of) so I caught it away in my magnificence cupboard for some time. One day, once I ran out of face mist, I made a decision to attempt it.
It didn’t take me lengthy to fall in love with it (and to understand that I used to be mistaken about it being just like the famed Beauty Elixir – it’s MUCH BETTER!). I shortly picked up again up bottles whereas in Paris, as a result of they have been rather more reasonably priced there, however I’ve actually loved utilizing this, and since it’s so under-rated, I needed to share! ?
Part of the rationale I take pleasure in utilizing this Caudalie Grape Water mist is due to the spray. It is available in an aerosol can, and the mist that comes out of the can is tremendous high quality. So fantastic, that it feels identical to a whisper of air in your face as you mist your pores and skin. Yet, the superb mist of water leaves sufficient water on pores and skin to make it really feel damp. Just how I prefer it, as a result of once I layer on my serums or oils, it absorbs extra shortly. You imply you don’t apply your products on damp skin? You should!
Now, we aren’t strangers to mists that are available spray cans are we? I used to enjoy the Vichy ones earlier than Vichy pulled out, and there are lots of extra out there. However, a lot of the spray mists you discover out there boast of thermal water.
Caudalie, as could also be anticipated from the model, makes use of water derived from grapes. Does this really feel any totally different on pores and skin? To be trustworthy, no it doesn’t. Yes, it feels very snug, moisturising even, however does it really feel identical to some other water? Yes it does. The spray does really feel extra superb, so my face isn’t drenched, simply properly damp.
I used to be proven nevertheless, that when you do a PH check with the Caudalie Grape Water, it exhibits a end result that’s nearer to the PH degree of our pores and skin. By distinction, a well-liked thermal water spray confirmed a extra alkaline end result. Does it imply the Caudalie one is best? Let me be trustworthy – I don’t know.
What I do know is that this. The Caudalie Grape Water cools down my pores and skin when it’s scorching, soothes it when it’s irritated, feels superb once I use it, and sandwiches properly with my skincare. My pores and skin appears to really feel softer once I use this – once more it might be nothing, or it could possibly be every little thing.
I took the small journey sized 75ml can with me to Paris (I do know, carrying coal to Newcastle – does anybody nonetheless say this stuff?! ? ) and used it extensively on the aircraft. It doubled up as my facial rinse when I didn’t have one on board, it helped to hydrate my pores and skin in dry airplane air (by no means let it air-dry after misting. Give it a couple of seconds after which gently blot with a bit of tissue for greatest outcomes) and it refreshed me earlier than touchdown.
As a end result, I purchased bottles of it in each French pharmacie I might discover LOL! If my baggage was greater, I’d have purchased extra ?
Do you want it? Of course not. Who wants something ? I exploit this interchangeably with different facial mists. But I like how I can do a steady spray with this (due to the aerosol motion) and the way the mist is so superb it doesn’t depart my face drenched. I like how soothing it’s, and once I really feel overheated, as I did on a current go to to Bangkok, I like the way it cooled and calmed my pores and skin, so ready for the general public bus and even taking the tuk-tuk felt minutely extra snug. Even my mother and father beloved it after I satisfied them it might make them really feel higher LOL! ?
Will I repurchase? Why not. I’ve. Many! ?
IN A NUTSHELL
The Caudalie Grape Water spray is available in an aerosol can in 2 sizes – 200ml and 75ml. The small measurement is ideal for journey and I extremely advocate it for when you’re visiting a scorching nation, or on a aircraft. The fascinating factor although, is that though it’s an aerosol can, I’ve handed airport safety with this on a number of flights now. I used to be requested to open my bag for safety to try the quantity of content material, however it was returned to me once they noticed it was simply 75ml. I just like the very high quality mist that comes out of the can, that leaves my pores and skin feeling barely damp however not drenched so you should use it even over make-up, simply to refresh your self. It is straightforward to regulate too. It has been some time since I’ve used a sprig can sort of facial mist so I can’t examine it with thermal water sprays. But I’ve loved utilizing this because it cools and soothes my pores and skin, and permits my serums, lotions and potions to soak up higher. I prefer it higher than another widespread manufacturers of facial sprays – I notably dislike Evian which simply looks like splashing mineral water on pores and skin. Avene is OK however I don’t discover it soothing; however I favored Vichy which we not get. It’s not a should have, however I’ve stocked up fairly a couple of cans, so I’m good for some time! ?

If you’re curious as to what’s in there, right here’s the ingredient listing.
In a nutshell, it’s simply grape water in there LOL! ?
If you’re questioning, no it isn’t candy. It doesn’t style of something (sure I tasted it ? ) and I’ve questioned if the cooling impact may need something to do with the aerosol perform.
But I’ll notice you can undergo a can fairly shortly. I blew by way of the 75ml can in nearly a month with pretty common use. So sure, it’ll harm the pockets considerably. That’s why I alternate it with different facial sprays – I’m not that frivolous LOL! ?
Have you used this Grape Water spray? Do you employ a facial spray or mist?
You know what tickles me? That it’s referred to as Grape Water in English and Eau de Raisin in French. Raisin in English refers to a dried grape so I simply discover it barely oxymoronic to have an Eau de Raisin. Just me and my bizarre way of living LOL! ? Now, inform me what spray you’re utilizing proper now?
