I wanted to review this product as I've been dying to get my hands on a Caudalie product for ages. Every blogger seems to be raving about the Beauty Elixir, however I'd heard that people with sensitive skin were having reactions to it, which put me off somewhat. Luckily I was able to get hold of a sample of the moisturising sorbet so could try it without committing to buy a full size (A must for people with skin like me, that reacts to everything!)
Down to the review! It is described as a 'sorbet', I'd describe it as a gel-creme-mousse! It's texture is unlike anything I've used before. It has quite a pleasant, natural smell and seems to sink instantly into your skin. It's so light that at first it really doesn't feel like it's going to moisturise that well at all, but it does. A little bit goes a really long way, I do my whole face with a pea sized amount. I honestly love this product. I've often strayed from my beloved Jason Moisturiser and always regretted it, but the Caudalie gives me such a lovely glow. It's good enough to use as a night cream, after I've applied Argan Oil but the fizzy sorbet texture makes it lovely under make-up. I purchased mine from Naturisimo, as they have 10% off all Caudalie and free delivery, plus I like that you can order samples with your order.
