I bought this Caudalie cleansing water for £8.50 from Amazon which is a good price as it can sell for up to £16.00 I have recently been using cleansing water rather than regular cleansers as I find them to be very gentle yet they still remove all my make up. This cleansing water comes in a 200ml plastic bottle with a screw top and it gives you the list of ingredients and instructions for use on the bottle.
It is soap free and has been opthamologically and dermatologically tested and is suitable for the most sensitive skin. As it is a cleansing water it is clear so you do have to be a bit careful how much you are tipping out as you could use a bit too much at a time. I will tip the bottle onto a cleansing pad just the once and find that this gives me enough cleansing water to cover a large section of the pad. I will then cleanse my face with the pad and usually find that one application is enough, but if I am wearing quite a lot of make up I will tip the bottle up again onto the pad.
I think it feels very refreshing on my skin and also quite cooling. I am always surprised at how much dirt is on the cleansing pad after use. There is a nice fresh cucumber fragrance but it it not strong or overpowering. My skin always feels very fresh and clean afterwards and I will then apply my moisturiser or night cream and I find it always goes on well after using this cleansing water. I find that I never get any residue or greasy feeling as I sometimes do with cleansers and I am happy that my face is completely clean. I do recommend this cleansing water and would say that if you have never used one, then this is a great one to try.
Caudalie Cleansing Water (30ml)
I received this product as part of a starter set from Caudalie which contained five minis and the set was priced at just under £10 I think and this product was included. I have been using this product as a toner and like all of the other caudalie products I have tried - it is great!

- About the product
I received this product as part of a starter/mini set and it is the 30ml bottle, which would be great for travelling. The cleansing water is suitable for all skin types and sensitive eyes. The product is made in France, it is soap free, it doesn't contain parabens and it is ophthalmologically and dermatologically tested.
- Using the product and results
I have been using this product as a toner after my cleanser and before my moisturiser. The product itself does look just like water, it is very runny and it is clear - but it smells like cucumbers, which I like but others may not. To use as a toner I have been dispensing some of the water onto a cotton pad and sweeping it over my face, eyes and neck before I apply my moisturiser. The first couple of times I used this product I did experience very slight irritation but it really wasn't anything major and it definitely didn't stop me from using this product and after those first couple of times I then didn't experience any irritation. This product works well as a toner I find as it just clears and refreshes the skin and makes sure that all of my cleanser or face mask has been removed before I apply my moisturiser.
The toner feels really light, fresh and refreshing on the skin which makes it nice to use and it is a quick and easy process. The scent of the product is evident when using but when the cleansing water has dried off the skin the scent isn't noticeable. I have tried using this product as a makeup remover too and it does remove some of my makeup really well but it doesn't get rid of all of it and it is best used as a toner, in my opinion. I have now used this product up and I think I would buy it again although I am happy with my Lush Eau Roma Water Toner instead but I would recommend this product for use as a toner.
