I'm confused. When Angie first mentioned her switch to Caudalie products, I took a look and decided I didn't want to change my cheapie regime (such that it is) for something more expensive.

Fast forward to gift sets at Sephora (which I love for trying new things). I bought a Caudalie grape water (I had no idea what this was and if I did I doubt I'd have bought it but it's nice) with a little moisturizing sorbet sample.

I went back to the original post and found that the gentle buffing cream was $15 so I went to the Caudalie shop in my local mall (Canada) and found that the same stuff was $42! I looked that the moisturizers and they were all in the $40+ range. What am I missing?
