Caudalie Beauty Elixir

Recognise this beauty (elixir)? It's been hailed as "the" product to have since Victoria Beckham went out there and said she swears by it, since then, every man and his cat seems to own it! It's not cheap by any means and I thought I'd buy just the 30ml and see how I found it before I made my investment for the 100ml. Now, Gemma has labelled this as crack in a bottle which is a pretty big statement so of course, I had to try it! Prior to this I was using Benefit Ultra Radiance Mist (see post here) which I would resemble to this.  I have been using both products in the same way to get a view of which is better over a few weeks now and decided that I do love them both equally! 

I use the spray after cleansing and moisturising and then again, after putting my make up on. I'm not really one for the smell as it's a bit over-powering but if you're into menthol things, this may be your cup of tea! It feels really refreshing and I genuinely feel like it's made my skin clearer. I don't get spots that often so I can't comment on that, but my face feels tighter afterwards in a good way and I feel a lot more awake! I've also been using it during the day whenever I need a little pick-me-up. It is a great product and I can see why VB loves it but the price does put me off investing to the 100ml. I have been alternating since testing both this and the Benefit Ultra Radiance Mist and prefer the Benefit scent but hey, it dries quickly anyway.

It makes me feel like Victoria Beckham (not) but hey, if we use the same product surely that'll bag me David no?

This was the moment everybody went wild!
Have you tried the Caudalie Beauty Elixir or even the Benefit Ultra Radiance Mist? What are your thoughts?
