I've dabbled in a few of Caudalies products thanks to beauty boxes in the past. I always love it when I get a sample size of a product to try before fully committing to the full sized options, and parting with my hard earned cash. I got hold of this sample of the  Caudalie Divine Oil after spotting an offer on facebook. I'd heard so many good things about the product I couldn't wait to give it a go.
When I remember to, I reach for a moisturising lotion or body butter after showering to treat my skin, however I can be quite slack with it purely on the basis that I am impatient and hate waiting for it to all sink in. This is where my love for the Caudalie Divine Oil starts, as it is in oil it doesn't take long to apply in the first place thanks to the spray nozzle. You can disperse the product evenly and quickly onto your skin. Secondly it sinks/melts into your skin quickly, meaning I'm not waiting around waiting to get dressed and I can just spritz all over my body, towel dry my hair and then throw on my clothes straight away! Winner!

The scent isn't too overpowering in my opinion but I know everyone will be different.I love that it does last on my skin throughout the day though. I noticed an improvement in my skin after a few uses, it definitely felt a lot more moisturised and soft. This is sold as a multi-use oil, so you can also use it to treat the ends of your hair and your cuticles, however I haven't tried using those ways yet. I'm enjoying it far too much as a body oil!
Retailing at £25 from Look Fantastic it is rather steep for a multi-use oil, especially as there are others available on the highstreet which a little more budget friendly. For that reason I don't think I will be purchasing the full sized oil based on the fact I simply cannot afford to at the moment. Not to say I don't like it, I really do but I have my priorities where my money needs to go first. Maybe it will be one of my treat products that I can treat myself with, when it suits my bank balance a little better! :-)
Have you tried the Caudlie divine oil or maybe a highstreet alternative? Let me know in the comments. :-)

Much Love,
