This Week’s Events: Caudalie & Oenobiol (and a Caudalie Promotion!)

Hey everyone!

This week I had the pleasure of going to two PR events, including Caudalie and Oenobiol. While Caudalie has been one of my favorite skincare brands for at least 8 years, Oenobiol is new to me. Let’s check out what they have to offer!

Caudalie is launching their new line Vinosource. This line includes the S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum, Moisturizing Mattifying Fluid (for people with combination skin like myself), Moisturizing Sorbet (this has been reformulated and is now in a tube rather than a pump bottle. I tried and liked the original formula, so I’m very curious about how the new one works. It targets those with sensitive skin), Moisture Recovery Cream (for those with dry skin), and Intense Moisture Rescue Cream (for very dry skin).

We got to try them on the back of our hands and arms. Not only is the texture amazing (even the Intense Moisture Rescue Cream is absorbed within seconds and not at all sticky), the smell is also divine (as all the Caudalie products do in my opinion)!

Oh, and the promotion! From today till the 31st of March, if you buy one product from this line, you get one of the shopping bags you just saw above! There are 3 kinds to choose from, but the majority of the bloggers wanted the Eiffel Tower one (doh). Luckily there were enough to go around, so there was no catfight haha

This is mine:

What would an event be without macaroons right? I’m not the biggest fan of macaroons, but those were delicious!

The serum retails for 27.85 euros, and all the creams will set you back 21.60. It will take me some time to test them out before I can write a thorough review, but honestly, during my 8 years of Caudalie addiction, I have not yet tried anything I don’t like!

Now let’s move on to Oenobiol!

Oenobiol is a French nutricosmetics company. They were one of the first (if not the first) companies to launch supplements that prepare your skin for tanning and even prolonging the tan (do I see you perk up in anticipation?)! The company representative told me the brand was launched in Taiwan last year. I checked out some websites and found out the slimming products are really popular haha

That’s Phil trying to steady a ball so that he could take his picture. If you check out his post for the event, you’ll see he managed to snap a picture of me looking like a bubble head (or in his words, an astronaut)!

Something for my weak, peeling nails? Yes please!

I received some samples to try, including the one that prepares skin for tanning and one that helps with hair and nails. These will take some time, but I promise I will and I will let you know how they work for me!

That’s it for today, dear friends! TGIF!

What are your plans for the weekend? Have you heard of/tried anything from Caudalie and Oenobiol? Did they work for you? Curious blogger wants to know!

    • They really are pretty cute! It’s not one of those plastic things either. I don’t know when this line will reach other countries or if they will have the same promotion. If they do you should totally grab something!

  1. I have never heard of these brands before but I am from the Caribbean so that might explain it! We are slowly expanding on the product lines here though! Love the bags! Glad you had a good time! Trying to see the Hunger games this weekend! Enjoy your weekend Sunny!

    • Thanks Nanni! Me too! They’re better but they’re still not very strong. I still have about 2 weeks left on the supplement though. Maybe by then things will magically become better.

  2. Oh wow, the goodie bags are adorable! The bubble’s floating around are so pretty, you sound like you had an amazing time!
    I’m a new style blogger and would love it if you could check out my blog!
    x Karen.

    • Hey Karen, thanks so much for swinging by and leaving a comment! The shopping bag is really pretty good, not one of the plastic things that you see everywhere. I’m a little afraid it’ll fuel my bag lady passion lol

      I just checked your blog out and LOVE it!!! You have good taste, and the layout/pictures are really adorable!!! Good job Karen! I’m following you now ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Aww the Caudalie tote is so cute! Glad to hear you got your hands on one ๐Ÿ˜€

    A tanning prep? That’s kinda odd that a Taiwanese brand would have something like that because it seems most Asian beauty brands aim to whiten the skin, not darken it. It’s refreshing that they have so many supplements that do different things though. I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of beauty supplements but am a bit weary about how long the effects actually last.

    • Hey Rinny!

      Oenobiol is actually a French brand. It was launched in Taiwan last year but I don’t think the tanning aid will sell too well there either :p It also works to keep moisture in the skin so that the sun doesn’t dry it out out though, so actually I think it’s good as long as you want/have to be in the sun!

      I’ve only tried two different supplements for my nails so far (one didn’t work). Usually I have to be on it for 3 months, and then they stay good for 3 months before I have to go back on it. I guess it depends on what kind of supplement it is and how well your body takes it though!

  4. oooh the shopping bags are really pretty!
    actually they are prettiest i’ve seen. (i usually detest bags like those..but…;p)
    the clear bubble displays are really cool, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Hey Lena! Yeah these are so nice! I’ll definitely drag it around with me at some point lol. And when people ask me where I got it I can tell them to get themselves some Caudalie cream lol

      The bubble display’s real cool, but it’s hard to photograph because they were constantly swaying!

  5. ๐Ÿ˜€ That looks like a bunch of fun, I love the bubble decorating at Oenobiol (how does one even pronounce that?!)
    I’ve only ever tried Caudalie scents, never any skincare.

    • Hey Mimi! Oenobiol is pronounced like wu-no-bi-ol if that makes sense lol

      I’ve tried a Caudalie scent too. Now they have three! You should try something from their skincare line. Everything is so gentle yet effective. I haven’t had the misfortune to try anything I don’t like yet!

  6. I like the cute totes! I always like the idea of caudalie products but never used them much… Maybe one day I’ll try again!

  7. Oh my goodness I love Caudalie! I’m so jealous of the tote. I love the sac in the center (with the quintessential Parisian advertisement things).

    What a wonderful time. I do wish we had more PR events here, those that you write about always look like such a wonderful time.

    • Hey Jessica! One of the great things about living in Belgium is that it’s small enough for similar events. In the US I suppose everything is more spread-out, so it’s more difficult to invite a bunch of bloggers anywhere! But then again you have IMATS and we don’t!

    • Hey Clara, sorry but I don’t know! I know that Oenobiol is already in Taiwan, so maybe they’re still testing the waters in Asia. I sure hope it’ll expand to Singapore soon!
