Grapes are not just for Wine

Caudalie; I was somewhat recently introduced to by Ruth’s post on A Model Recommends. The active ingredients from this French brand’s products are from grapes so I guess wine is not the only commodity from viticulture.

The Cleansing water is a star product in my opinion and fantastic for cleansing the skin without the need for rinsing with water. Wetting a cotton pad with it and a few swipes later, I feel clean, awake and there is no uncomfortable tight feeling. It is quite effective in taking off light make-up but might need more than one cotton pad to get everything off. It is also perfect for travelling or when in a rush to get ready.

The cleanser is essentially oil droplets in micelles dissolved in water hence you don’t see the characteristic oil-water phases. The oils are able to dissolve dirt, oil and makeup on contact with the skin.

It does not contain mineral oils, artificial colouring or common surfactants (e.g. SLS) that can irritate the skin. It does contain fragrance but is said to be for all skin types and I would be willing to bet that most sensitive skins will not complain about this.
