Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Caudalie, pronounced as kô-da-lee, is a measurement of quality that quantifies the duration of a wine’s flavor on the palette. For each second the flavor remains this is a caudalie. The finer a wine the more caudalies it will have.



Caudalie Paris is a natural brand enriched with Polyphenols from grape seeds, Resveratrol from grapevine stalks, and Viniferine from grapevine sap. The brand promotes free of parabens, phenoxyethanol, mineral oil, animal ingredients, sodium laureth sulfate and artificial coloring. According to Caudalie, this Hand & Nail Cream is highly concentrated in patented anti-oxidant grape-seed polyphenols, moisturizing and strengthening Vinolevure, fair trade shea butter, nourishing grape-seed oil, avocado, plant glycerine and sweet orange.



Caudalie line is solely distributed by Sasa in most Asia countries. Although I found their facial skin care products have beautiful consistency with look-good ingredient list, but I only grabbed this hand & nail cream MYR68/75ml at the end.  After many wrong purchases in the past , I was afraid to get another unsuitable product again.



Normally I’ll opt for rich and thick texture for extreme moisturizing care. Out of expectation, this hand cream is feeling so nice on hands. Comparing to those thick and rich textured hand cream that I only reserved for night care, I was addicted to this “light-taste” hand cream.



The hand cream is pleasant mild fruity citrus scented. The texture is lightweight yet creamy, leaving no greasy film on skin. It almost absorbed into skin instantly. Other than the silky touch I didn’t even sense any hand cream applied on.  The “nude” feeling is absolutely suitable for day use, especially those dislike greasy hands. At night, I used liberal amount for extra nourishment as I slept in air-conditioned room. That would be tiny sticky touch-feeling initialy when applied thickly but the stickiness would transformed into baby-smooth feeling in few minutes later.



Excluding cooking and bathing, I wash my hands very frequently everyday. The hand could be easily getting very dry and form the hard nail cuticle faster. What I totally adored this Caudalie hand & nail cream is it truly nourished despite the light texture. Having said that, of course using liberal amount is the key point. It soften the rough spots and hard cuticles (including the heel), refined the skin texture overnight!  However, I didn’t notice any change to my nail, may be my nails didn’t have any issue at the first place. Still, this is quality one.


Ignoring the price tag, I love to carry this around. This is the bulkiest skin care item that I brought to airplane or anywhere. Really enjoy the delightful fruity scent, though the scent faded off in a short while. I was thinking to get Jurlique hand cream (rose) for night care and reserve this for day use and travel because Jurlique’s is my favorite too, and it was much creamy for better moisturizing. I just finished the first tube of this hand & nail cream in 2 months, definitely will re-purchase.


Rating: ….)))      Excellent. Willing to buy again.
