Review: Caudalie Divine Oil


Caudalie Divine Oil

Availability: Sephora
Price: $15.00 (1 ounce)

Company’s Description

This multi-use miracle oil is ideal for hair, nails, bath, and massages. Divine Oil is a unique alchemy of four extremely fine and evanescent vegetable oils (60 percent of the formula). To ensure that the benefits are truly complete, Divine Oil also features patented antioxidant grape-seed polyphenols and fair trade shea butter.

A subtle fragrance that will make you swoon as it caresses your skin. For the signature note of the fragrance Jacques Cavallier chose the rose, both the Moroccan rose and the Bulgarian rose. A burst of grapefruit and sparkling spicy pink pepper add a freshness to the fragrance while cedar, vanilla, and white musk base notes offer warmth. The composition is modern and infinitely desirable.

Caudalie’s Divine Oil is a multi-use dry oil that can be used on the hair, nails, and skin. Keep reading for photos and my thoughts on this product.
