Caudalie Firming Concentrate: Spearmint Oil for the Win!Wednesday, June 08, 2011
I've occasionally been using this body oil from Caudalie after my showers, and I have to admit it feels very decadent when I do. The oil is pretty light and smells like spearmint, sometimes with a little herbal scent added in. It sprays on, though I wish more oil was released with each spritz. I spray it all over my body and rub it in lightly before applying my lotion over it. I swear it locks in more moisture and just smells yummy. I do not feel greasy afterwards, which I love!
Caudalie markets this oil as a firming oil for the body, which I suppose it is. A quick glance at the ingredient lists shows a lot of different oils that have anti-oxidant activity in the skin. I haven't noticed any great firming benefits anywhere on my body (including those pregnancy induced stretch marks, specifically mentioned on the Caudalie website), but the oils have seemed to help keep my skin well hydrated and my ezcema at bay.
