Caudalie Magic Skin Potions

Who would have thunk I would win two Facebook contests in a weeks time but it happened!

I won the Caudalie Anti OXBox contest!! This of course has given me the motivation to enter any and all contests that I come across :)

I wasn't exactly sure what the kit would include.  Until about a month ago, I had never heard of the brand Caudalie before.  Partly, I am sure, because it is a bit pricey.  But I am finally to the age where I do realize that when you pay a bit more for certain products, they help you pay less on other products.

Basically, these skin care products help your face become an even, smooth, clear canvas for your makeup. And who doesn't need a bit of that??

Here are some of what you will and won't find in their products.  And they are against animal cruelty and that is very important to me.

Now, the Anti OX box comes with three products that have antioxidants and anti wrinkle properties in them. It also came with a stress ball and a note pad :)  So now let's review the Anti OX Box from Caudalie :)

Guess who wanted the ball??

First item up for review is the Anti Wrinkle Defense Serum.

I had gotten this item before in my Birchbox and I fell in love.  Its main ingredient is Vitamin C and it brightens, moisturizes and plumps my skin.  It doesn't clog my pores and keeps my skin clean and protected. It has a very lovely natural scent, too. Get It Here.

Next, it came with the Anti Wrinkle Protection Fluid.

This is pretty much the same product as the serum, but is more of a lotion type consistency.  This also has Vitamin C and sun filters in it.  It is never too early to start the war on wrinkles either!  Get It Here.

And lastly, it came with the Anti Wrinkle Eye & Lip Cream.

This is a doubly duty product, for both my eyes and lips.  Vitamin C and Witch Hazel are the star ingredients.  Instantly tightens, smooths and moisturizes.  I have been using it on and off for about 3 days now.  No dramatic results, but no negative feedback here either.

The one thing that I was really hoping would come in this box was the Overnight Detox Oil.  Oh. My. Gosh.

Again, another sample I received from Birchbox and it is truly a magical product! It clears and brightens your skin OVERNIGHT.  Literally, the only product I have ever used that instantly showed what it can do.  I have not read any negative reviews on it, either!

This is what it looks like and you can Get It Here.  I plan on placing an order with my points and 20% off code (FIRST20OFF) soon, as I have used up my sample.

Don't get me wrong, I was terrified as I have never put oil on my already oily face.  Despite my one girlfriend (who does it all the time and her face looks perfect) telling me to do so! But I charged on and did it and I was so glad I did.  It is pricey but yes, a little goes a long way and the results are worth it and it keeps my skin pretty.....yes that is what I told my husband about spending $52 on oil.......

Are you a fan of Caudalie?

Do you use them all at once or finish one product and then use the others?

What other products of theirs should I be using?

Do you use a better detox oil that you recommend?  I'd love to know!

Let me know in the comments below.

Have a great day!!
