With elements drawn from nature and treated with respect, along with botanical ingredients such as carrot, rich in vitamin C, and anti-oxidants, the illuminating treatment moisturizes and gives a carrot overtone to your complexion... making the mood much more joyful. Tops: each carnation has its colour tone.

For a boosting effect
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is wild about it. For her it’s: “a spa right at home”. As proof, she always has her Eau De Beauté by Caudalie handy and has even become their ambassador. Composed of 100 % natural ingredients such as extracts of orange blossom, grapes and rose, essential oils of rosemary—as well as others— it has a whiplash effect on the dullest skins, fixes makeup and tightens pores. Ideal after a sports session to smooth out face lines, on the plane to moisturize skin or at the office to refresh skin with a destressing effect. The plus: a marvellous fragrance of essential oils.
Eau de Beauté Limited edition 100ml, Caudalie, €31.80.
To look 10 years younger
You will become addicted to the healthy cream Absolution: formulated with coconut oil and offering anti-bacteria properties —that instantly calm irritations and redness while fighting against imperfections—a probiotic that stimulates good bacteria to rebalance the skin ph, honey filled with amino acids, sugar and vitamins to nourish and boost the immune system. The plus: a formula with 98 % natural and 52 % organic origins.
As a complement and for a bluffing result, after your day cream, apply just a few drops of Smoothing serum by Ren with the fingertips. Its formula, also rich in probiotic and without silicone, tightens skin and makes it look 10 years younger.
La crème de Santé, Absolution, €38.

It can be applied to the entire face or in glowing touches, like a blush, just on the cheeks. Ideal for retouching during the day.
