As Spring approaches, the first thing I change in my daily routine is the fragrance. And when I change the fragrance every season, I do relate the notes with the season as many of you might do. A particular note might feel and smell different to me in particular season and it might be very off for the other. For me, Spring is all about fresh, floral, or fruity notes blended with the base notes of my choice which keep my mood elevated all day. Miu Miu L’Eau Rosée Eau de Toilette is a fresh floral fragrance with the keynotes of Blackcurrant, Lily, and Musk. Miu Miu L’eau Rosée is a new take on the first fragrance from Miu Miu.
Miu Miu L’Eau Rosée Eau de Toilette (CAD $94 – 50ml) is described to capture the spirit of the Miu Miu girl. This soft floral fragrance created from lily of the valley and cassis buds is tightly wrapped in notes of sophisticated musk. The iconic matelassé bottle is magnified by the elegant alchemy of transparent glass and light pink juice, with a contrasting navy blue collar. The nose behind the fragrance is Daniela (Roche) Andrier. The juice is a soft floral created from lily of the valley and cassis buds, tightly wrapped in the notes of sophisticated musk. As the name suggests, Miu Miu L’Eau Rosée is dewy and alive, a brand new olfactory chapter that stays true to the youthful yet erudite Miu Miu story.
This is very beautiful scent, the perfect feminine rose scent. I do not find it very sweet but the perfect blend of sweetness yet light and airy. It feels very pleasant and elegant. The green notes and the floral notes with the base note of musk, what can I ask more, such a beautiful blend and so perfect for the spring and summer. Just want to mention here that Rosée here means ‘dew’ as in dewdrop and not rose, so the focus is on the early spring vibe. The bottle as you see in pictures has matelassé-quilted glass, the navy blue band around the neck with house logo in gold. The bottle is heavy and feels really luxurious.
There is a reason why Cle de Peau Beaute – Le Serum is a bestseller product. I am going to share that reason with you guys and what difference I have noticed in my skin since I have started using this serum. You might have noticed I do mention in my posts how much time I have used a skincare product before having my thoughts ready, I will never want to give you guys an update on something that I have not used for good enough time, based on what product it is. For a serum, which works as a treatment and usually works on the deeper level of the skin, I do use it for around or over a month or two before writing about it. I have used Cle de Peau Beaute – Le Serum for over a month, 4-5 times every week in my night routine and over 3 times in a week during the daily day routine.
Cle de Peau Beaute – Le Serum (CAD $390) is described as a luxurious anti-aging serum awakens natural beauty for visible radiance with Chai Hu technology and our exclusive ingredient Illuminating Complex EX. Supporting skin’s natural healthy look, it enhances resilience and strengthens for increased suppleness, hydration, radiance and a soft cushiony texture. The serum is the new reformulated version of original, it has been elevated by not only the packaging, but the formula now contains Essential Prime Complex, an exclusive ingredient to support the fundamental barrier function of skin and lock in moisture for a visibly vibrant complexion. The serum is dermatologist tested and is non-comedogenic, so I was so happy about it as I have congestion-prone skin.
The ingredient list is amazing as well as the key benefits:

If you see the packaging, it is like a piece of art or jewelry, I am loving the performance, results, and the packaging, it is all in one superb product. I use this serum after cleansing my face. The serum is colorless and fragrance-free, the consistency is gel-like, good to apply all over the face before it gets sunk into it and dries. As approaching my mid-thirties, I am more inclined towards the anti-aging products to maintain my skin. This serum has been a great addition to my skincare routine. My skin has been more clear, radiant, and youthful. I know some of you may not like the word youthful for a thirty-something woman, but I mean in the sense that I am seeing and feeling like the way my skin was in my twenties, it is youthful. So I am very positive that for a little more older skin than mine, it will have amazing results too. For younger age group, I would say it is better to start early than be late. The resurfacing action of the serum is helpful in keeping the breakouts at bay and also to clear out the skin of any pigmentation and imperfections. My skin has been brighter, clearer and luminous. I know you guys commented on my skin in my Instagram stories, this serum has been a part of my skincare routine and I am impressed. I do tend to get some dry flaky areas on the face while I have combination skin, more on the oily side. And while using this serum, I have not noticed any dry areas, skin is hydrated and calm.
I really love Cle de Peau Beaute skincare and makeup products as well, I reviewed the Clé de Peau Beauté Le Fond De Teint The Foundation and Clé de Peau Beauté Correcteur Visage Concealer SPF 25 here and Cle de Peau Eye and Lip Makeup Remover, Cle de Peau Cleansing Clay Scrub, and Cle de Peau Cotton here. Cle de Peau Beaute – Le Serum is available at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Cle de Peau Beaute official website.

The shine and color are buildable, I have been wearing it to work, one single swipe and I am good to go to even a formal meeting. They did not dry out my lips, the color stayed on pretty well for over 5 hours and there was a stain on my lips after the product was gone. Even with the stain, I did not feel it dried my lips.
