How is the grape water different than the beauty elixir? Is one better than the other?

The Grape Water is pure organic grape water that hydrates and soothes the skin. Organic Grape Water increases skin's hydration by 127% and decreases sensitivity by 62%. It can be used as a toner and any time your skin needs a boost of moisture. The Beauty Elixir is a toner that also works as a setting spray for makeup. The Beauty Elixir contains essential oils that tighten the pores, hydrate and give the skin an instant burst of radiance.

Good Question, I've used both. The Elixer has more perfume in it, the Grape Water is Water Grape and Nitrogen. You'll want to spray the Elixer on before you spray then follow with your make up foundation. Both set your make-up and they both can be used to freshen up. the Elixer is more expensive than the Grape Water, both are great to have so it really comes down to a question of preference.

They are both completely different. Grape Water is soothing and has no fragrance, I like to use this during my skincare routine. I like to put moisturizer on damp skin, I find it soaks in better instead of sitting on top of my skin. I like to mist my skin with Grape Water and then use my moisterizer. The Elixer has essential oils in it and almost has a minty-ness to it. It feels kinda tingly on the skin, I like this to set makeup because it gives a nice glow. The Elixer is nice and I never have any issues with it, I love it. But... I could see this being a tad irritating to someone with senstive skin. It has a pretty strong smell due to all the essential oils used.

The beauty elixer is the better product by far. I have tried both and was far more impressed with the results of the elixer. They both will overall benefit your skin in clarity, skin tone, and pore reduction. However the grape waters benefits are far less noticeable than the beauty elixer.

The exilir has essential oils in it. The elixir smells kind of minty and floral. It also seems more hydrating than the grape water.

The grape water is mostly like water. It has a very fine spray and no scent at all.

The grape water is different from the elixir in a few ways. This is just water, light moisturizers and mineral salts, so it really serves as a hydrator or refresher and it can even be used to set mineral makeup very well. The elixir is more power packed and is ideally used before your moisturizer and/or creams for best results so it may be absorbed directly into your skin to provide the greatest benefit. With the elixir I have noticed a more even skin tone and less defined smile lines. So, I use the elixir in the morning before my moisturizer cream, after my makeup I use the grape water spray to set it, and through out the day I use the grape water periodically if I feel drab. I find I have tired eyes, or if I just need a little pick-me-up. I use the elixir again after I wash my face before bed.

I have used both and I prefer the grape water. I dont have a bottle of elixer to compare ingredients, I think the elixer has a bit more to it, maybe it has grape seed extract. I tried the grape water and I highly prefer the water. Settles down my skin when applied to bare skin, and it makes my makeup look very natural when sprayed over powder or liquid.

I have very sensitive pale white skin with roscea and found that the elixir made my face sting...and not in a good way. It was tolerable and went away after a minute or so. However, with roscea you are constantly trying to calm the redness and skin so I have to stay away from products that sting. I agree with the part about the serum. The finish of the elixir alone leaves a sticky/dewy finish...like a serum. Also, I think the elixir has a strong alcohol type smell which I did not care for.
On the other hand, the grape water is a dream. It is not a serum like the elixir and I would qualify it more as a toner. My skin is very dry so after I step out of the shower it is a race to put my serum and moisturizer on because the water on my face evaporates so quickly. I just spray a little of this on, wait and then apply serum and moisturizer. My skin ABSOLUTELY looks better with this as opposed to using any other toner or no toner at all. It really calmed my skin and made my makeup application very easy. It helps set my makeup so that I have an airbrush-like finish. It's cool and refreshing and I like the smell. It appears to calm or settle my roscea and redness. After gardening all day in the heat I sprayed some on my face, neck and back of neck. It was heaven. I cannot say enough of this product except that there are a million different uses for it and it has quickly risen to one of my all time favorite items.

Absolutely! The main function of a toner is to balance your skin pH after you wash and clean your face~ And I found this product to be mild enough to use for combination skin (not like some toners that are straightly for oily skin which may make your dry area super dry and itchy)~

answer 2
If you aren't using a moisturizer on your skin then your T-Zone is working overtime to compensate the lack of oil on your face. When you use a moisturizer, the T-Zone chills out and doesn't work as hard. I have super oily skin all over, so I hold the can at least a foot away from my face and I don't spray directly onto one part of my face. By holding it a foot away, I can cover more ground. It eventually will help you with hydrating your face and cutting down the oil too.

As a fellow oily T-zone gal, yes, it does somewhat make it feel oilier at least if not make it more oily. Because, I think it does trap moisture and for me personally it feels like adding moisture hence trapping my forehead grease underneath the moisture trapping properties of this spray.

The Grape Water is purely water, while it does contain hydrating and refreshing properties. The Elixir is water-based but contains various oils (don't forget to shake it before each use), so it helps with the "glow" effect as well as having additional hydrating benefits due to the rosemary. Though both are quality products, I think it's more sensible to use the Grape Water throughout the day; and, the Elixir in the morning before make-up, because of the oils it contains. Both products do not ruin make-up if you choose to use it after make-up application - but definitely has different purposes.

I actually use it right after I put on my make-up, as a setter. The mist comes out so fine that I've never had a problem with it 'washing' off my make up, which is why I prefer the aerosolized spray, versus the other sprays that come out of pump-type bottles.

probably depends how much makeup you wear. I wear no foundation, only a little powder. it is a very fine mist, so if you spray at somewhat of a distance you should be okay. But I think you'd be happier just using it after you cleanse and prior to moisturizing. take care ; )

I used this all summer, under or over makeup to refresh my face on a hot day. I think it depends on what type of makeup you use but, do not spray it directly into face. Close your eyes, hold it about 10-12 inches away until the light mist just bearly falls over your face . Your skin should slowly drink it in. If it unsettles your makeup, although I don't think it should, Sephora's great and will gladly take it back.

I had a similar reaction to the Caudalie Elixer, with eye irritaton and increased skin redness. There is no mint or rosemary in the Grape Water, and is far more soothing. I use it daily to remove any chalkiness from my mineral powder foundation and spritz it around my typically sensitive eyes.

I don't find it minty at all. I think it's pretty much pure grape juice and grape juice is like 70% water, so it doesn't sting at all. It's actually very refreshing. I really don't like minty stuff either and really don't enjoy the tingling feeling, and this product did not do any of that.

I would say yes, but check the TSA page online to see for sure since it has compressed air. The page online is constantly updated so that would be your best bet. I know I'd love to know because it'd be great to have to combat that dry cabin air on an airplane. You might have better luck with the Beauty Elixer, but again check for sure if they'd even allow that on a plane, you might have to check that one too.
