This is literally one of the best facial sprays I have ever tried! When I first picked it up I had been eyeing it for a long time and I'm so glad I went ahead and bit the bullet. It's great over makeup for a dewy effect but I enjoy it most as a toner. For a spray it's extremely moisturizing and since I've added it to my routine I've noticed that my pores are less visible. There are, however, some drawbacks. One is the intense smell--it's extremely pepperminty with hints of rosemary. I don't mind it and actually enjoy it but I know some people are put off by fragrance in their cosmetics/skincare. Also, if you open your eyes too soon after spraying it you run the risk of irritating then, which I believe is due to the peppermint oil. Besides that, another point worth mentioning is that the all the ingredients in the spray are plant derived and organic (except for the water). It's also certified as a clean product at Sephora, which just means it's free of sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, and all the other gross ingredients that you want to keep away from your hair and skin. And one more thing! The mist on this bottle is. So. Freaking. Fine. It's one of the best, finest mists I've ever used and will evenly coat your face everytime. I wouldn't recommend this to everyone, but if you're in search of a great toner and refreshing makeup spray I say it's definitely worth the splurge.

Hmm I'm not sure if this product is for everyone considering its steep price. I used it as a toner for awhile but it didn't leave a difference in my skin. It mists over your face but I don't see it reducing any fine lines/wrinkles or whatever it proclaims to do. The smell is VERY naturey and be careful because if it gets in your eyes it WILL sting from the peppermint. It's hard to use with lash extensions because a pretty fine mist comes out and can get onto your extensions and in your eyes. Seeing as it makes no difference to me and I don't really love the smell, I won't be buying this again.

This is my favorite product of all time! For dry and sensitive skin it is so hard to find a product that actually improves, rather than irritates skin. I can always count on Caudalie to use the best ingredients that are natural, beneficial, and gentle enough for me. 
The elixir smells wonderful, sprays on beautifully and tightens pores without drying my skin at all. I also use it to set my makeup or freshen up during the day as you won't catch me without my travel size bottle in my bag as well! While some may think it's a bit pricey, it is worth every penny and then some!

I recently went to Sephora and picked up possibly the best facial spray that I have used in my life. A few years ago when I was in Canada I stopped by Sephora with my mom and sister and purchased the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. This is just too good. It smells like you're at a spa and just makes you feel so refreshed and rejuvenated. Highly highly recommend for skincare and for setting makeup! You can use this before, after, and during your makeup application process!

Hands down by far the best elixir on the market! I refer to this as my two minute make over in a bottle. The results are seriously impressive and immediate. Known as the “secret” for makeup artists for a reason! The mist that truly does it all! It works wonders for my pores, it tightens my skin, gives me a STUNNING glow and keeps me feeling fresh! This cult-favorite toning mist is perfect for every skin tone and fixing ALL skin imperfections. It is made with the best natural ingredients and essential oils and smells and feels amazing! This is probably my favorite skincare product out there.

The packaging is on point, in a glass spray bottle. The nozzle gives the right amount of spritz without large droplets. Caudalie Beauty Elixir The Secret of Makeup Artists is a little thicker than the average refreshing spray. It’s more of a serum type spray. It make my face feel amazing after a cleansing. You get that tingling minty feeling but not overwhelming. Besides feeling great, it sinks in and locks in moisture. I initially bought the travel size to see if i liked it and then I bought the full size. Only downfall is the price, it’s a bit expensive for what it is.

I purchased this product because of the scent not really paying attention to the skin benefits it was providing. Recently I started researching ways to tame my redness and provide more moisture to my high altitude stressed skin and I rediscovered this product! Not only does this elixir give your skin an instant moisturizing boost - it also, as I have only recently discovered - does an excellent job setting makeup! It’s a great, refreshing skin pick-me-up and I absolutely will be continuing to use this product to combat the DRY DRY DRY Wyoming winters!

I used to love this mist, is great if you want a glow from within after you apply your makeup and make it flawless. But unfortunately this mist a little too oily on hot days for my t zone so instead of a healthy glow I get an “oily” glow if you know what I mean. I still think is gorgeous for someone with dry or normal skin. I’m not too crazy about the smell it reminds me of floor cleaner but I love the glow I get when I use a matte foundation. The price is also too expensive and it doesn’t last that long if you use it everyday

Wow, if you are into a little more expensive skin care, this is it! It does such an amazing job at refreshing your skin and making it plump.
I was recommended to it when I had an allergic reaction to a beauty product and it helped me tons! The only thing I do say is that the price is a little bit much but it does the job so if I need it, I’ll buy!

If you liked the scent then maybe this product would be for you, but I’m personally not a big fan. Sadly, the scent seems to be the only thing notable about this product. It doesn’t seem to actually do anything for the appearance of your face/skin. It just smells and moistens your face upon spraying it— and I mean moistens not moisturizes, so I really don’t see a point once the moisture dries. It just cools you off a bit if anything. I also thought that maybe the price would be justifiable because it’s a mist and therefore I thought it would last a long time but that’s not the case. I’ve been through about 1/4 of the small bottle I bought and I’ve only used it a handful of times. Overall I just don’t see a point to buying this, especially for the ridiculous price tag.

I've been using this for several weeks now but I haven't really noticed any difference in my skin tone. Has anyone noticed an improvement and if so, when and how do you apply the product?

I'd really like to try this product in 2016 but I have been at a loss of what it is for!! Is it a dry oil? A perfume? A skin moisturizer? I couldn't figure out from product descriptions!!
