Cleansing is the basic step of removing makeup, dirt, excess oil and impurities from the skin’s surface as well as the pores. Without the cleansing process, all of these elements can build up to cause dullness, irritation and even breakouts. The Caudalie Cleanse and Tone line ensures a purification of the skin which is absolutely essential for a healthy complexion. Even though a high quality cleanser is designed to remove all impurities, it is inevitable that a little may be left behind. This is where toners come into play. Toners remove any excess residue from the skin after cleansing and return the skin to its natural pH level where it is better prepared to absorb active ingredients found in moisturizers and treatment products. Caudalie Cleanse and Tone products leave the skin feeling refreshed and ready for the next step.
No treatment product should be used before a thorough cleansing and toning. Caudalie Cleanse and Tone should always be considered the first step in any skin care system. To meet the varying needs of different skin types, Caudalie Cleanse and Tone offers a range of products with different purposes and goals.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir is a very refreshing spray that can be used as a toner to tighten pores, prepare the skin for hydrators and treatment products as well as setting mineral makeup. Caudalie Beauty Elixir contains essential oils that soothe the skin while also relaxing the mind and body. The elixir smells fabulous and can even be used to lightly fragrance clothes and linens. The scent is absolutely natural and does not linger.
The best cleansers are effective yet gentle, avoiding the stripping of the skin’s natural oils. Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser does not contain any soap that might dry or irritate. The light foam dissolves oils and impurities while leaving the skin feeling soft and balanced. It is gentle enough to be used twice a day.
Those with dry and/or sensitive skin need to be extra careful when selecting a cleanser. Caudalie Gentle Cleanser is a soft, nourishing cream cleanser that is extra mild and gentle so as not to aggravate complexions that tend to react to product. Added antioxidants help protect the skin against environmental aggressors that can lead to premature aging. The cleanser can be applied with a cotton ball or bad. You can also massage the cleanser directly onto the skin.
