Reviewing my French beauty buys: Caudalíe Hand and Nail Cream

Paris Beauty Buys - 02

It’s been a few months now since I went beauty shopping in Paris, and during that time I’ve travelled elsewhere, picked up new beauty products, tried them out, and written some blog posts. However, I haven’t yet reviewed everything from that Parisian haul, and because I’ve been loving it so much lately today I want to review the Caudalíe Hand and Nail Cream.

In Paris I picked up the Caudalíe Hand and Nail Cream almost on a whim. My hands were feeling a bit dry, I was near a pharmacy, and I thought why not? So I popped inside, asked for a hand cream recommendation, and voila! I was handing over my cash and pocketing this beauty.

Well, since I bought it I’m lucky enough to say that a smaller, sample size version arrived in my March My Little Superbox which promptly made its way into my handbag where it became a staple item. And while that one is nearly finished, this full size version is practically untouched and ready to spring into action when the weather turns in a couple months.

I love that this hand cream leaves my hands feeling hydrated without a sticky/filmy residue. It’s also helped my fingernails recover from the flaking caused by months of being covered in nail polish. (I find that if I don’t give my nails a week or so to breath every few weeks they become a flaky mess that can take a while to fix, and recently I didn’t respect that!) It also has a fresh, grapefuity scent that’s refreshing for summer, and in the winter will remind me of these warmer days.
