Caudalie Nourishing Body Lotion Review + Swatches

Are you sick of hearing me talk about Caudalie yet? Too bad! I love everything they sell, and I can't stop telling you guys about it. The Caudalie Firming Nourishing Body Lotion ($36) is a rich, hydrating treatment promotes microcirculation and helps prevent premature skin aging. It leaves the skin soft and firm.

Who is it for?

For those wanting an intensely nourishing body treatment that provides lasting moisture to skin all day in a modern, non-sticky formula. Perfect for after a shower or bath when skin is most optimal to retaining moisture, or at any other time when skin is feeling dry. I would not recommend this lotion for people looking for scentless body lotions. Apply this rich, yet non-sticky formula to all areas of the body

Have you smelled Caudalie products before? They all have the same soft scent, so if you've tried anything from them you will know the smell. It's soft and calming, it reminds me of Spring time. You will either love or dislike the fragrance, but I'm guessing most people will really like it. It has a bit of a floral smell, maybe honeysuckle.

And does it work?

Yes! Caudalie products are great for sensitive skin, and won't irritate. For example, now that I'm pregnant I've noticed even some of the most basic lotions and moisturizers irritate my face and arms. I have dry patches, red spots, and my skin has been looking horrible lately. The Nourishing Body Lotion along with the Caudalie Face Cleanser are the only products I'm loving lately. The Body Lotion goes on smooth and non-greasy. It has eliminated my dry spots on my elbows and arms. And because it's firming I also use it around my waist and tummy in combination with my belly salve to prevent stretch marks.

I love that the soft smell lasts all day, and I consider this more of a perfumed body lotion. Looking at the bottle you might think it is scentless, because it doesn't list the fragrance, but I find it to be one of a kind, and my absolute favorite. You really feel like you're in a spa with every use. Your skin will love you for this one! I found this works best if you have patchy dry skin spots and don 't want to apply a yucky moisturizer that doesn't smell great. This lotion absorbs directly into your skin and won't leave behind any greasy feeling.

Buy: You can purchase the Caudalie Nourishing Body Lotion for $36 at Caudalie's website. And if you really love their body lotion, you can buy it in the Limited Edition full size for $40. Ok so you can purchase regular size oz or for 4 bucks more you can get the 14 oz size. So if you're looking for more bang for your buck, I would consider buying the larger size. But hurry, because it is limited edition.
