If you a) like Caudalie b) like hand creams (I know I do) c) are looking for a small present, grab one of the limited edition Caudalie Hand Cream Trios while you can! The set contains 3 30ml (1 oz) tubes of Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream, and they are all delicately scented with notes inspired by different grapes!
The three fragrances include Feuille de Cassis (blackcurrant leaf), Pamplemousse Rose (pink grapefruit), and Miel de Vigne (vine honey). The notes are interpreted from Merlot, Sauvignon, and Cabernet (sorry but I know next to nothing about wine and the variety of grapes that go into making it). Not only do you get to sample three delicious scents, the size is just right for tossing into your makeup bag!
None of these three smells overwhelmingly strong, but the scents do stay around for quite some time. In terms of formula, Caudalie slightly altered their Hand and Nail Cream recently (they took dimenthicone out! Yay). I have used up several tubes of the old formula, and I can’t say I notice any difference between the two. It is still super lightweight, leaving no greasy residue but keeping hands moisturized: definitely one of the best hand creams for daytime!
Feuille de Cassis smells fruity, a bit sour and sweet at the same time! I am normally not big on blackcurrant, but I really love this one!
If I have to pick a favorite out of the three, I’d go with Pamplemousse Rose. This is citrus done right: not sharp or sour, but just light and fresh!
Last but not least, we have Miel de Vigne. This is the most “interesting” one in a way, as it is green and woody while “honey” should smell sweet for me. If all three scents were available full-size, this is probably the only one I wouldn’t purchase alone. However, thrown into the mix, I really don’t mind it that much!
Here are the ingredient lists of all three in the same order:
For comparison, here is the ingredient list of the previous formula:
Bottom line: Caudalie Hand Cream Trio goes for around 10,20 euros here. Despite the fact that I have more hand creams than I can use already as it is, I am still very tempted to stockpile this set! It’s the same great formula in adorable packaging that is easy to carry around, plus the different scents will keep things interesting!
Did anyone cave in and grab it already? What are some of your favorite hand creams?
