Bath & Unwind Gift Sets + Caudalie Vine Body Butter Review

Colour me pink (tickled pink!) when the lovely people at Bath & Unwind contacted me recently, asking if I'd like to review some of their skincare products and Christmas gift sets. Bath & Unwind stock a large range of beauty brands (think Alpha H, Becca, Jane Iredale, OPI, The Balm and Trilogy, to name a few) and offer free worldwide delivery. I was able to select my trial products (YAY!) and today I'll show you what I got (my Korres cherry has finally been popped, y'all!) and review the first cab off the ranks, Caudalie Vine Body Butter.

REVIEW: Caudalie Vine Body Butter

This product comes in a generous-sized 200 mL plant-based tub that is sturdy, solid and isn't going to smash or split if you drop it. On removing the brown screw-top lid, I was met with a very pleasant citrus fragrance, which no doubt comes from the 'orange tree, bitter orange, orange blossom and orange wood' ingredients.

The product is a white, fairly thin consistency cream that absorbs quickly and effortlessly. It feels luxurious going on, however I had to be careful with the amount used, as sometimes my skin felt tacky after application. I do feel it nourishes my skin and it works best on dry areas, such as elbows, leaving them soothed and hydrated.

Caudalie Vine Body Butter also contains grapeseed and organic shea butters which help to repair damaged skin. It's touted as being an ideal after-sun product, and I can imagine coming home after a Summer day out with the family and lathering some of this on my exposed areas to soothe them. I particularly enjoy using this body butter right before bed, because I love the waft of this gorgeous scent as my head hits the pillow. I think the addictive orangey smell may well be my favourite feature of the cream.

Caudalie are against animal testing and this product is 95% natural. It's available at Bath & Unwind here with free shipping no matter where you are in the world. If this doesn't float your boat, check out the huge range of body moisturisers available at Bath & Unwind, there's sure to be something there to suit all tastes.
