I don’t talk about skin care enough, considering how much time and money I actually invest into it. And I actually get lots of compliments on my skin too! But before I found a regimen that worked, I had a very bad case of cystic acne that would flare up over and over again, like clockwork. The same areas would break out, heal, then break out again.

My current nighttime routine helps keep my skin happy, and now my skin is pretty much blemish-free…except for at this very moment, of course, because the Universe is a funny place. But generally these days I only need to focus on healing the damaged skin (can still look red and raw), exfoliating, and moisturizing.

Skin Prep: The Cleanse

The most important part of my nighttime routine involves removing every stitch of makeup before I go to bed. I won’t go too into detail, but I double cleanse, either using a makeup wipe + cleanser or cleansing water + cleansing oil, and I also always remove my eye makeup separately with a bi-phase product.

A Grape Escape for Dry Hands: The Fragrant Caudalie Hand Cream Trio Gets a Big Hand From Grapes http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/product-reviews/caudalie-hand-cream-trio/ http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/product-reviews/caudalie-hand-cream-trio/#comments Tue, 26 Nov 2013 18:51:26 +0000 http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/?p=152297 A Grape Escape for Dry Hands: The Fragrant Caudalie Hand Cream Trio Gets a Big Hand From Grapes

If there is such a thing as a Caudalie Hand Cream intervention, I WILL NOT HAVE ANY PART OF IT.

I’ve been unknowingly toting around not one, but two full-size tubes of the original version in my Poverty Flats purse for the past couple of months and only realized it last weekend. But you know what? Instead of taking out one of the tubes, I left them both in there, because you just never know when Z-Day will go down, and it would be such a travesty to not have a really, really great hand cream available. 🙂

Those two tubes in my purse may be joined shortly by Caudalie’s new trio of holiday Hand Creams, because I can’t get enough of the three wine grape-themed scents (each one comes in a 1-ounce travel-sized mini tube) in this limited edition set.

Just like the original formula, these three are bursting with botanicals and antioxidant-rich grapevine polyphenols to sooth, smooth and repair skin and nails. They’re also free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates.

They leave my paws lightly scented and feeling soft and smooth…

Good stuff!

Unfortunately, if you’re thinking about gifting this trio to someone, stock up on elbow grease, because that $25 sticker on the box is a bear to remove… I scratched up the cute box in the process.

My Dry Claws Crave Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/product-reviews/my-dry-claws-crave-caudalie-hand-and-nail-cream/ http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/product-reviews/my-dry-claws-crave-caudalie-hand-and-nail-cream/#comments Tue, 28 Feb 2012 19:24:18 +0000 http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/?p=104791 My Dry Claws Crave Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream

Last weekend I did the unthinkable… I encouraged a friend to forgo a caramel cupcake in favor of trying a beauty product.

I know! My sweet tooth was so ashamed, but ever since I picked up Caudalie’s $19 Hand and Nail Cream from Sephora, I’ve felt compelled to push it on all my friends.

“Dude,” I said to her, inches away from the tantalizing treat, “put down that cupcake, because you need to try this hand cream I just got at Sephora.”

Normally, I’d never dream of denying someone the chance to get their sugar on, but that’s how moved I was/am by Caudalie’s cream.

I’d been looking for a new anti-aging hand cream for a while when I stumbled upon this one. It’s bursting with beneficial botanicals and antioxidant-rich grapevine polyphenols to help smooth, soothe and repair, but it lacks parabens, and many of the harsh chemicals commonly found in anti-aging creams (NOTE: in the event that you’re sensitive to silicones, it does contain Dimethicone).

It’s just so rich and moisturizing, and yet it absorbs quickly without leaving a greasy film on my hands, that I’ve totally fallen in love.
