Review of the Resveratrol Treatment by Caudalie Paris

I was recently lucky to get the opportunity to get a Resveratrol Facial Treatment at the Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie Paris at the Shangri-La Hotel. I was greeted upon arrival at the luxurious spa and led to the change room to put my belongings away. A robe and properly-sized slippers were given to me and I was assigned a locker to store my belongings.

I then met with Alexandra who would be giving me the facial. She explained that the Resveratrol Facial Treatment lasts an hour. The facial treatment (a Canadian exclusive) firms and lifts and immediately boosts collagen and elastin in the skin. It’s performed with stimulating rollers meant to encourage circulation for a toning effect. The new Resveratrol product line contains hyaluronic acid to promote immediate lifting and firming results.

Alexandra began by cleansing my face, neck and decollage with a gentle cleansing milk. All of the products used are by Caudalie and are natural with no parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, mineral oils, sodium laureth sulfate or animal ingredients.

My skin was then exfoliated with a gentle buffing cream to remove any dead skin. Next, a moisturizing toner was applied which balances and brightens, followed by a spritz of grape water that hydrates and soothes. A firming serum was applied next, followed by an eye and lip serum that firms and drains. A spritz of the beauty elixir was then sprayed and I have to say, I loved this product the most. The smell is just incredible.

A mask was then applied which promotes the previous products to sink in more efficiently.

A hand and foot massage is included when getting any of the facials.The Miraj Hammam spa offers seven different facials (The Caudalie Grand, The Men’s Vinotherapie, the Vinoperfect Treatment, Polyphenol C15 Treatment, the “Premier Cru,” Vinosource and the Resveratrol Facial Treatment). A luxurious hand and nail cream along with a foot beauty cream are massaged in while the mask hardens.
