Flying can play absolute havoc with your skin as the limited oxygen means your skin cannot breathe and cleanse itself as efficiently as it normally would, coupled with aeroplane air conditioning which can suck all of the moisture out in an instant, or leave it completely bone dry after hours of exposure. These elements coupled together cause dry and tired looking skin, and no body wants to start their holiday looking dull and dehydrated! Thanks to the lovely team at Caudalie, and their best selling range of Grape Water products, I was able to leave my recent long haul flight 'feeling grape', and was able to kick start my holiday feeling fresh and revived.

One of the greatest things about Caudalie products is their affordability. On a daily basis I use and swear by my Elemis products, however, the hefty price tags certainly add up when using a full skin care range on a daily basis, and the last thing you want to worry about is your expensive products being lost with your case at the airport! Therefore, using a more affordable brand such as Caudalie is perfect for me when travelling, as I feel I am still using great, high quality products without the price tag (the grape water products are priced as cheap as £6)!

One of the products I took away with me was the Vino Perfect Serum Eclat - their anti dark spot radiance serum. The gorgeous glass bottle is the perfect size for popping in your handbag (and at 30ml you are able to take it on the plane in hand luggage too!), and the pipette applicator makes the product super easy to apply when you're in the air, and can even be done from the comfort of your seat. As well as reducing the appearance of dark spots, scars and damage, the serum also helps to even your skin tone and boost radiance, helping to defy that dull looking aeroplane skin.

The benefits of this serum aren't just limited to the flight, however, as you can apply the serum underneath your sun tan cream to help achieve a smooth and even suntan!

Made with 100% organic Grape Water, this mist both tones and moisturised skin simultaneously, leaving the skin refreshed and feeling healthy all day long. Caudalie state that it is enriched with "moisturising polysaccharides and mineral salts", which provide hydration instantly, making this product the perfect flying companion for when you need a quick freshen up. For me, the best thing about this spray is it's soothing properties and ability to really freshen up the skin providing an extra boost of freshness.
