This year I wanted to try more from Caudalie, a brand that I had only tried luxury samples of but had instantly wowed me. I’ve been trialling the new Caudalie Vine[Activ] range for about 3 weeks now and wanted to share my initial thoughts with you. The Vine[Activ] range helps protect the skin from pollution and against ageing and said to leave your skin feeling bright and youthful.
I’ve really enjoyed having an entire skincare range to try out and since this range is great for all skin types it means even my dry skin has benefited from it. Prior to using this my skin was dull and I was really struggling with dry skin and my under eyes were just lack lustre, they weren’t dry but makeup wasn’t sitting great there but since then things have changed.
This oil I have used every night before bed and feel it’s one of two products that have really stood out to me. A 100% natural oil that works overnight by detoxifying the skin and leaving it fresh and glowing the following morning. When applied at night my skin is left feeling all slippery but it feels so moisturising and exactly what my dry skin needs, my skin just drinks this stuff up and looks so fresh. Come morning my skin is smooth and hydrated but for me, most importantly it doesn’t feel tight or uncomfortable.
Whereas the oil is my nighttime base, this serum is my daytime base which goes underneath the moisturiser every morning. I feel like this is the product that boosts my radiance a little, after looking a bit groggy once I’ve just woken up it leaves my skin feeling a little brighter, hydrated and smooth. It’s a great base as an extra skincare step and sits really well on the skin.
This moisturiser I use after the oil at night and the serum in the daytime. It’s such a lightweight texture that doesn’t feel sticky or tacky on the skin, it sinks in really quickly to leave your skin with a plump fresh appearance. Makeup applies beautifully on top of it and leaves my skin feeling hydrated all day.
This is the product that has impressed me the most, I’ve used eye creams a lot in the past and although they are nice I have never noticed a huge difference. I know eye creams and skincare in general require a long testing period to see the true benefits, that’s why this is an initial thoughts post instead of a full blown review, however saying that, I have noticed the biggest difference around my eyes. Before I started using this my eye makeup would sit in my fine lines, it would crease and although it wasn’t dry in terms of flaky skin, my under eye areas were dull and dehydrated. Since using this my makeup has applied so much better and doesn’t settle in the lines anymore. I feel like this eye cream plumps up the skin and really nourishes it, they are less dull and I just look a bit brighter and more fresh.
I really am enjoying this range, it’s a great selection of products that work great together. Stand out products for me are definitely the oil and eye cream, they are so lovely and I’ve noticed the biggest difference from them the most. I highly recommend this range to any skin type who is struggling with dull skin that needs a boost of radiance and youthfulness.
