Caudalie product review

Caudalie products

I recently finished reading Mathilde Thomas’ book, The French Beauty Solution, and was inspired to think more carefully about the lotions and potions I put on my skin. The premise is based on using natural substances (grape seed, rosewater, and others) as part of a skin care regime that not only provides immediate benefits, but also cultivates a lifetime of lovely skin.

Mathilde is the co-founder of Caudalie skin care, and I was so inspired that I purchased two products: Premier Cru and Vinoperfect elixir. They arrived yesterday so last night I had a chance to give them a try.

After washing my face, I applied Premier Cru, a very smooth, lightly scented serum that claims it “…lifts, firms, smoothes, nourishes, and brightens with a proven blend of Caudalie’s three signature patents—resveratrol, viniferine, and polyphenols—plus five exceptional plant oils.*” It felt luscious and rich, but absorbed quickly. A little goes a long way, which is a good thing given that Caudalie products are not inexpensive. But then, I always believe you get what you pay for.

Following the Premier Cru, I smoothed on the Vinoperfect Elixir, a “…lightweight milky serum corrects and prevents dark spots, to even skin tone and increase radiance.*” Again, its lovely, delicate rose scent and quick absorption made this product heavenly to use.

My skin felt nourished and fresh, not greasy as some products can do.

I am anxious to see the results of regular use of both these products, but I already feel that I am a convert.

Products can be purchased online or at selected retailers.
