We're on the brink of that time of year when every hour feels like 3pm. You know, that wall we hit during a hectic day when we think we can't possibly go any further without a pot of strong tea, a box of Purdy's Sweet Georgia Browns (or a jar of Nutella) and a nap. Save yourself instead with a generous misting of this Caudalie Beauty Elixir L'Wren Scott Collector's Edition.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir (from $19, sephora.ca) is near legendary in the world of glow-boosting facial mists. Celebs, beauty editors and beauty addicts swear by its blend of flower water, rosemary essential oil, glycerin, and mint to wake up skin and spirit. Lovely for all complexions, it's especially delightful for dehydrated and dry skin. (Tip: facial mists are lovely gifts for skincare enthusiasts. This face-mists 101 post can help you choose.)
I bought Beauty Elixir on my first-ever trip to Paris; shortly after my return, the little bottle smashed in my pedestal sink. My small bathroom smelled so wonderful that I couldn't stay sad. That's the pick-me-up power of its natural scent alone. On skin, that delicate trace of mint is the soothing yet freshing gift that keeps on giving.
Designer L'Wren Scott is apparently a fan of Beauty Elixir, too. At the behest of Caudalie founder Mathilde Thomas, she designed this limited Caudalie Beauty Elixir L'Wren Scott Collector's Edition (from $19, sephora.ca). The curving mosaic is a nod to her current clothing collection, which she says was inspired by painter Gustav Klimpt.
Do yourself a favour and pick up the travel size bottle of Caudalie Beauty Elixir L'Wren Scott Collector's Edition to keep in your purse starting now. (I've used it eight nine times while writing this post. I feel good.)
L'Wren Scott's been busy. She's also collaborated with Gap on an upcoming collection.
