£29 buys a lot of things but I just spent my twenty-nine on a Caudalie “refill”.  I love this night oil and realised this week I’d never reviewed it, so here we go.

Have you tried this? How did you get on?

A 30ml bottle of good face oil for under £30 is a beauty steal in my opinion and while I’m all for investing in really good beauty products (your skin will be saying a big thank you when you hit the 40+/50+ mark) Caudalie have made this luxe oil surprisingly affordable. It would still sell well if it cost £50 upwards.

The giant pine cone is making the bottle look like it’s 15ml but it really is a full 30ml!

Grape-centric, one of Caudalie’s USPs is its signature antioxidant grape polyphenols (repair/regenerate cells), while neroli purifies and decongests. There’s also calming lavender, healing rosemary, protective rose and carrot oil in here (more, as well – see the full ingredients at the end).

Why do I like it/you might like it? Because I apply about 6 drops at night (alone or under your night cream) and I find I wake up with still-glowy skin, as if I’d just applied it an hour ago but in reality I’ve had a whole night’s sleep in between.  It manages to feed/plump/smoothe skin without leaving you looking like you slipped and fell into a vat of olive oil. It’s 100% plant oil-based, it just really agrees with my skin and my skin really agrees with me 😉

The Bathroom Shortlist (OSKIA and Tisserand have snuck in, too)

I also love the scent, you get wafts of bitter orange leaves and lavender…orangey-greeney…scent is so personal but for me there’s something inherently comforting and close-to-nature about it.

And it suits all skin types so it’s got wide appeal.

Most appealing of all (going round in circles, here!)…is the price.  If you find yourself hovering around the facial oil section this month wondering what to try next and you like the sound of this one, I’d say “go for it”.

(Ideal age: 30-35+ upwards).
