Well, I finally finished my beloved tube of Caudalie Vine Body Butter last weekend, and yes, it was just like Maxwell House Coffee (good to the last drop).
Polishing it off also left a void in my heart that I knew only one thing could fill, and the name of that thing starts with the word, “Sephora.”
Okay, that doesn’t make any sense at all, but you know me. Anything to try something new! 🙂
I stopped by Sephora on Monday night to look around, and here are three things (among many others) that caught my eye…
1. Caudalie Nourishing Body Lotion
As soon as I stepped foot in the store, I made a beeline for the Caudalie display. I’m still on a Caudalie kick, so I’m taking their Nourishing Body Lotion ($36 for 8.4 counces) out for a test drive.
With summer approaching, this is about the time I usually switch to lighter body lotions that don’t feel so heavy on my skin.
This one, for normal and dry skin types, contains antioxidant grape polyphenols and ginkgo biloba (of cognition-enhancing fame) to help keep skin soft and firm.
I’ve only been using two days, including today, and I already love it. It’s rich and moisturizing but doesn’t leave my skin greasy, and it absorbs more quickly than the Vine Body Butter.
If you’ve ever sniffed Caudalie’s Hand Cream before, it has the same light, fresh grassy scent.
So refreshing after a shower… It might be too early to say this, but I think I found my new summer moisturizer for my bod.
