The Cosmetics Post... Facial Water Sprays...

Friday, 26 July 2013

Remember when that Magicool came out? Basically water in a can that you sprayed on your face to cool down! That's what I thought these facial sprays were all about until I tried the Caudile Beauty Elixr. Apparently there are skin care benefits to the hybrid that's out now - who knew? Not me clearly. 
I have fallen ever so slightly in love with the Caudile Beauty Elixr but it is an expensive habit to have. At £30 a bottle it's not cheap and I flew through it. The minty refreshing spray is a staple in my handbag and I will always repurchase the same size (helps my travel sickness), I am not prepared to fork out the £30 every few weeks. After reading a few blogs I'd seen that the Grape Water by Caudile seemed to be the same refreshing face water but at a fraction of the price. This big bottle cost me just £9 from and because there is a fine mist that is sprayed out I think it will last longer. The spray refreshes and moisturises my skin especially when I spray it over makeup during the day, I need to pick up the travel size because a 200ml bottle just isn't practical. 
The travel size option I did go for this time is the Avene Thermal Spring Water basically because with the French Skin Care deal that Escentual had on it made this bottle dirt cheap. I thought it would be handy when I am bridemaid, and it was - the day was so hot. As a face spray it's nice but I prefer the Grape Water because it feels more cooling in my opinion. The PH of the water is almost neutral which is good for your skin and it leaves a barrier between your skin and all the nasties. 
These have both been life savers this past couple of weeks, especially at Leanne's wedding which was a scorcher! Even Matt is getting involved, though I don't think he will admit it ;).
What do you think of facial waters?


ps One more week left at my current job - scary!


  1. I'm addicted to the Avene one, I got the full size and it's almost all gone (sad face) but it's so refreshing, definitely worth it in the summer :-)

  2. I haven't tried any facial waters yet but I'm really interested in trying either the Caudalie beauty elixir or grape water. I wonder how big the difference is between the two; the latter is a lot cheaper. x

  3. Ive always been a bit skeptical about these but at £9 it's not to expensive to try is it? Plus I'm willing to try anything throughout this heatwave, I'm melting!


  4. I opted for the mini Avene thermal spray. I use this when I fly. Its so refreshing.
    I have a Simple one that I also like and that comes in a handy small size too
