Caudalie · New Skincare 2019 Launches

Earlier this year Caudalie launched some new products, and as this is a brand I’ve always experienced excellent results with, I was really excited to give them a try. True story: as I was preparing my review, my daughter sent me her Christmas wish list (we do things pretty early around here) and I was amazed to see that she’s listed a few of today’s items; I consider that a pretty good endorsement for this brand — this generation knows, trust me.

Rodial · Vitamin C Collection

It’s no secret that I love makeup, but I must confess that skincare really excites me. I mean, like REALLY. Rodial is a brand that I’m slowly becoming more acquainted with, and I literally jumped at the chance to test out their Vitamin C Collection. Also, how uplifting is the orange colour of this range?
