Grape therapy / Caudalie style creams

I've used and loved Caudalie products in the past but can't justify the ££s they cost any more.

Earlier in the year I bought Aldi's Grape Therapy creams and I thought they were super. I stupidly didn't buy every jar in the shop at the time because my local branches have never stocked this line again and now I'm down to the dregs of my last jar.

Does anyone know of a similar alternative that won't break the bank please?

Never heard of the caudalie products, but Superdrug's optimum range have a couple of grape products... I was looking for a new moisturiser as No7 Protect and Perfect range is getting a little too spendy for me. I didn't try the grape products but they might work for you

Thanks, I might give that a go.

Anyone else know another cream?

What about the M&S day cream. You're after something with resversatrol in it which is the active ingredient in the Caudalie cream.

Thanks Suze, that might be closer to what I'm looking for.

Although I've just received a SpaceNK spend £x and get £y off, I'm teasing myself with the idea of a splurge (it's a bad idea).

Tk maxx often stock caudalie.. Obviously its not the full range but its worth a try to look in there.

Seaweed Step away from space nk...

What have you got your eye on?

Well... i seem to remember that there's a delicious rose smelling Eve Lom cream (can't remember if it's the Rescue Mask unlikely? or the TLC cream).

And then of course a Caudalie face cream, maybe NARS lip stick pencil...

But really, i can't afford to spend £60 just to get £15 off... can I? hmm

That Aldi cream made me retch! funny how some scents really are pleasant to some and less so to others. Ok, I was pregnant at the time, but since then I still can't even consider it. I gave it to my brother recently, who had tried it a while back in the summer while he was at ours and announced that it is one of the nicest 'lady creams that doesn't smell bad'! I'm sure that it'll be back in the new year OP. They were around at the beginning of this year wasn't it? They'll be back......

Tea oh what a shame that it was no good for you. And yes, I'd love to see it return to the shops!
