I'm one of those people who has to try out a bunch of skincare products to really see what works for them, constantly trying to find my next holy grail. I'd heard of Caudalíe before but had never tried their products, so when three skincare items came through my postbox, I had to try them. With skincare it takes longer to review as your skin has to get used to new products but after weeks of use I now feel confident I can give a full review. The products I received were the Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet (£23)*, the Micellar Cleansing Water (£9)* and the Gentle Cleansing Milk (£9)*.

The Vinosource Moisturising Sorbet is claimed to be a 'sensitive skin saviour' by aiming to soothe the skin and reduce redness. It contains "quick break" technology and is gel-cream formula that turns into water on contact, helping to nourish, strengthen and calm the skin. It contains organic grape water, soothing chamomile an anti-oxident rich polyphenols which all work together to rehydrate your skin and keep it smooth. It's also suggested that you store it in your fridge to make it refreshing and cool. I'm really loving this product, especially since my skin has been hating the cold weather at the moment. It's preventing me from developing dry patches on my forehead and cheeks which means my makeup looks so much better on the skin.

I love a good lazy-person makeup remover, so when I saw the Micellar Cleansing Water I was really excited to try it. It's aimed towards people with sensitive skin, to gently cleanse and remove makeup from the eyes and face in just one step. The formula contains micelles which trap impurities in the skin, so sebum, oil and leftover makeup which are then wiped away with a soaked cotton pad. It has a scent too which is unusual for a cleansing water, with hints of orange and lemon blossom, watermelon and mint leaves. The only thing I dislike about the product is that it leaves your skin a bit sticky after you've used it, but once you've applied a moisturiser or serum it goes away. Aside from that, it works well in removing the makeup and I'm quite pleased with it. It has a handy pump which I've not seen from other micellar waters before.

The final product is the Gentle Cleansing Milk is aimed towards all skin types and comes in three different sizes; 100ml, 200ml and 400ml. You can use this product with or without rinsing afterwards which is a great feature about this product. It's a velvety milk formula that cleanses and removes makeup, enriched with soothing and hydrating agents to leave the skin soft and clean. It contains sweet almond oil, grape seed oil and extracts of sunflower and oat. It's another alternative to micellar water, especially for the eyes when you're looking for a product to gently remove eyeliner and mascara. After I've used this bottle up I'll most definitely be picking up a 400ml bottle as it's a lovely remover especially on the eye area which for me is pretty sensitive.
