good quality

on clean skin it freshens your face, tightens your skin and makes it look plump, spa treatment quality

but the quality of my skin is noticeably different

i wasn't expecting much, first impression judged only on look was 'it's only a water' but it's so much more than that, it calms your skin (and my skin is very moody, sometimes very oily sometimes with dry patches), smells lovely, makes your makeup that little bit dewy and most important, your skin is so incredibly smooth, and on top of that my boyfriend noticed a difference and he never does, so yeah speak for itself, ill def purchase another bottle

New Staple!

I bought this to try as a setting spray. Honestly I haven't figured out 100% how to use it as a setting spray. Sometimes it makes my makeup look like skin, other times it makes my pores more defined and makes my foundation look like wet flour (I use cream foundation). But holy shmoly when it works it looks ethereal.As a toner- YES! My skin is usually very sensitive to skincare products but this stuff is amazing. On clean skin it freshens your face, tightens your skin and makes it look plump, spa treatment quality. It kind of just sits on dry skin, but oily zones eat it up and look instantly cleaner and much less inflamed. I've started using it before primer without moisturizer and I don't need any "blurring" makeup because of it. And my acne is clearing up beautifully!The smell- I love it. I personally hate minty scents but I really really like this. The funny part? My mom usually loves minty smells, so I had her try this mist. She hated it!!! Could not get past the smell to enjoy the product. So if you're iffy about mint, maybe check it out in store first Less

I have very dry and sensitive skin--and a lot of skin care products give me hives. I've had zero reaction to this and I've been using is for more than a year. This is not super hydrating like I would have expected so I imagine you could use this on oily skin as well. I like to spray it on a flat-top foundation brush before using it and then also do a quick spritz after I finish my makeup. I've also used it on eyeshadow brushes when I need to apply shadow wet. I also have a small bottle to keep in my bag, and I will use spray it on again if I'm going out after work and it really refreshes my foundation to keep it dewy but not shiny. I rarely wear perfume and I've had several people ask me what I wearing after I've sprayed this. It's a nice smell, and one of my favorite Caudalie products.

Great for oily skin or acne; not for roscea.

I have fair pale white Irish-American skin with roscea. To say it's sensitive would be the understatement of the century. I tried the the elixir and it made my face sting...and not in a good way. It was tolerable and went away after a minute or so. However, with roscea you are constantly trying to calm the redness and skin so I have to stay away from products that sting. (I think it is the mint essential oil they add for the astringent aspect of the elixir that made my skin sting.) In reading other reviews, it seems that the people happiest with the product have "normal" or "combination skin" and that makes sense. I would recommend this product for those with oily skin or acne. I would recommend it for those with combination skin. However, if you have dry, sensitive or roscea skin...this is not for you. The finish of the elixir alone leaves a sticky/dewy a serum. Also, I think the elixir has a strong alcohol type smell which I did not care for. I know a lot of people are trying to figure out whether to get this product or the grape water. For what it's worth, I also tried the grape water and it works like a dream. It is not a serum like the elixir and I would qualify it more as a toner. My skin is very dry so after I step out of the shower it is a race to put my serum and moisturizer on because the water on my face evaporates so quickly. I just spray a little of this on, wait and then apply serum and moisturizer. My skin ABSOLUTELY looks better with this as opposed to using any other toner or no toner at all. It really calmed my skin and made my makeup application very easy. It helps set my makeup so that I have an airbrush-like finish. It's cool, refreshing and I like the smell. It appears to calm or settle my roscea and redness. A huge bonus. After gardening all day in the heat I sprayed some on my face, neck and back of neck. It was heaven. I cannot say enough about the grape water; it's an amazing product except that there are a million different uses for it and it has quickly risen to one of my all time favorite items. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Exceeded my expectation!

I bought this on a whim as it came in a favourites deal package after reading a couple of reviews on it. I bought it with the intention of using it on my mom when I do her makeup as she has dry skin but I loved it so much myself! I have combo skin and I find this helps so much with dry patches and any sensitive areas on my skin that gets red and inflamed through out the day. Even when my eczema starts to act up on my body, a few sprits of these and my sin feels so calm! The product also doesn't make my skin too dewy so that places like my t-zone become extra shiny, rather it has a mattifying effect as well which makes me appreciate the product all the more better.I was skeptical about the price at first (which is why I bought the package in order to get more products) but I now see it's worth every penny! « less

Best skincare product I have ever used

I have both sensitive and oily skin, so finding a product that doesn't cause my skin to breakout is close to impossible. This beauty elixir has replaced both my toner and daily moisturizer. I've tried so many moisturizers claiming to be good for sensitive skin, but they cause my pores to clog. And, moisturizers that claim to not clog pores, irritate my skin. This elixir both keeps my skin clear and hydrated. I used it the morning of my wedding day and the makeup artist said she had never seen skin that was so well hydrated, and I only had 3.5 hours of sleep the night before! It was the elixir that saved my skin. I also love traveling with it. It's the perfect antidote for long flights. All skin is different, so I would suggest to either buy the travel size first, or go to a Sephora store with no makeup a few times and test it on your face. Less
