For my birthday, my good friend Chiara Boschis gave me some products from Caudalie. It was the first time I had heard of the brand, which was founded in Bordeaux by Mathilde Thomas. The beauty products are made from the vine and grape from vineyards in France. How cool is that?!
What does Caudalie mean?
What does the term caudalie mean? A caudalie [kodali] is a unit measuring the duration of the wine’s flavour on the palate. For each second the flavour remains this is a caudalie. A quality wine will contain many caudalie’s.
No animal testing and good for the environment; what more do we need?
What I love most about the products is that they don’t test on animals and they don’t use parabens. Instead, they use fair trade and organic raw material. So you can feel good about the products, because they are natural and environmentally friendly. And as a wine nerd, it’s cool to use creams and shampoo derived from the grapes that made the wine you drink! Finally a wine product that doesn’t get you drunk (haha).
Their products range from hand creams to face creams to face wash to shampoo. Mine are all travel size, but you get them full size as well. And the smell is amazing! You can find their products in stores in the US, Canada, Paris, UK, Germany and a few other places. You can also buy the products online.
