Caudalie specialises in grape-oriented anti-aging and skincare products. It is definitely a very ethical brand, saying no to all artificial preservatives, mineral oil and animal by-products.

Klorane is another French brand that emphasizes the use of original natural ingredients. Their dry shampoo is super efficient in adding a great volume to and cleaning your hair with a simple shake and spray! Make sure you get one, because they uses ingredients such as oat milk, corn and rice starch. What a great botanical refreshment!

It comes in a very convient size that it fits your clutch perfectly, plus it has very original scents such as Wood Sage & Sea Salt and Earl Grey & Cucumber. It also does limited editions of scents that always go out of stock.
