    It's suited for all skin types who are looking for an extra dose of ~vitamin sea!~

    "One tube lasts me for around six months since I use a very small dab (quite literally less than a dime-sized amount). It has a very mossy smell, which I actually kind of like because it's actually a soothing scent first thing in the morning and it makes me feel like I'm using good ingredients on my face. This exfoliates so well that I've actually seen some acne marks on my face lighten up over time with continuous use. And, it always leaves my face feeling soft and smoother." —Jasmin Suknanan

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed, @caudalie / Via instagram.com

    I've been washing my hands a lot recently (AS WE ALL SHOULD BE) and it was starting to take a toll on my skin. My hands were so dry and the skin felt really tight immediately after washing. So I started using some Caudalie hand cream, and it's become the second step in my hand-washing routine. The texture is light and it absorbs really quickly, without leaving behind a sticky or greasy feeling. And it has a warm citrus scent that I find very subtle and soothing. My hands look and feel moisturized and soft, and I'll definitely be restocking once I finish the tube.
