For those of us that love a glass of vino then this brand could be
of great interest to you.
Caudalie has been on my beauty radar for several years and I regret not buying
some of their iconic beauty products on my last trip to France.
(Interesting fact me sister lives just 2 hours away from Bordeaux, 
so it's definitely on my bucket list to visit the
Caudalie Vinothérapie Spa outside of Bordeaux)

I have a slight obsession with a good facial water spray and I include them daily
 in my beauty routine, in fact I merrily spritz away several times a day.
I have a wardrobe of four facial water sprays and even though, on the surface,
they may appear to perform the same function, for me they each have their
own specific strengths,who knew that facial water sprays could vary so much!
 (perhaps this will be a blogpost for another day) 
Previous Facial Water Spray Reviews

 I recently added the Caudalie Grape Water Spray to my collection and what 
better product from Caudalie to review first.

Before I get to my review here is some background to the brand:

The skin care brand Caudalie was founded by Mathilde Thomas and her husband Bertrand. The story starts in Bordeaux (France), at the heart of the vineyards on the family estate. The vine and grapes possess exeptional powers for the skin - powers which were simply waiting to be developed. 'Do you know that you are throwing away treasures?" This sentence changed Mathilde's life. It marks the meeting with Professor Vercauteren. He is one of the world's specialists in Polyphenols and has been the scientific advisor of the research centre since the creation of Caudalie. Ever since the brand was created, products were created with the maximum amount of natural ingredients that respect the environment. In 2006, Mathilde took the decision to remove parabens from all their products.
One of my fascinations with this brand stems from its intriguing name 
and its beautiful meaning.

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.

The Grape Water Spray itself is made from 100% organic ingredients, 
this gentle plant-based mist, extracted from grapes, works to sooth, refresh and moisturise the skin anytime, anywhere, whilst also reducing sensitivity.

It all starts with the picking of fresh grapes during the very first days of the harvest.
 The harvested grapes are then pressed and distilled using a low-pressure process. 
This exclusive Caudalie process makes it possible to isolate water from the 
grape juice by evaporation.
 This exceptional water is combined with a very small dose of pure 
organic red grape juice to achieve the perfect formula: 
Caudalie organic grape water.

This organic grape water spray has slotted perfectly into my facial water spray 

wardrobe and currently I seem to reach for the Caudalie more than the others.
It has all of those wonderful refreshing, calming and hydrating benefits that we
expect from any good facial water spray, but the Caudalie seems 
to have more of a moisturising element, thanks to the
"power of the Vine" 

Will there be a re-purchase?
For sure along with some other interesting products.
