As a teenager I suffered from oily skin prone to breakouts. We're talking Acutane levels of skin insanity. Over the last decade or so, it has settled down and now I'd say I run closer to “normal” – not too dry and not too oily. I have gone through what feels like a million face cleansers trying to find one that will cleanse the oily areas without making the dry parts worse. I wasn't looking for a magic eraser or cure-all pill and I definitely did not want a 30-minute 10-step morning routine. I just wanted a natural product that worked. It shouldn't be that difficult. Enter Caudalie. Their products work and do it without harsh chemicals and skin irritants. Everything by Caudalie conforms to EU standards, which are significantly (read: astronomically) more rigorous than those of the U.S. I use their Instant Foaming Cleanser in the morning to wash my skin of of all the build up that happens while sleeping (I swear, I think my body goes through a nightly detox dumping everything onto my skin). It is refreshing and light and just the thing I need to kick start my morning. At $28 for 150 mL (5 fl. oz.), it is pricier than most drug store and grocery store options, but right in line with most beauty lines sold at department stores. Worth every penny.
