Caudalie

Birchbox Breakdown

We boost our vitamin C intake when we feel a cold coming on to try to block that unwanted visitor. And we can think of its powers in the same way when it comes to our skin. This oil-free, antioxidant-rich concentrate is loaded with vitamin C to shield your face from wrinkle-causing free radicals (UV rays, smog, and the like), while reversing previous damage and improving overall skin quality. The result: a brighter, smoother, more hydrated appearance.

How it Works

Polyphenol and vitamin C ward off pollutants and other harmful environmental factors that age your skin while they stimulate cellular turnover for a fresher complexion. At the same time, hyaluronic acid and olive squalane lock in moisture and plump skin to correct existing fine lines and wrinkles. The formula is hypoallergenic, nonphotosensitizing, and noncomedogenic.

How to Use

Morning and night, apply a dime-sized amount to a clean face and neck before applying moisturizer.

Amazing.

I hit that point where I needed to add a serum to my routine. I looked around the stores and googled the blogs. I finished a bottle of another high end brand and said "meh." There were a couple other brands that I almost bought. Ironically about a week before Birchbox started promoting this particular Caudalie line I found it myself at Sephora and had a very informative discussion with one of the sales gals. I fell in love with this serum at first try. And I am not expecting miraculous results with my skin care, much less without giving it a good long shot. But this serum absolutely feel right on my skin. It feels healthier. Sure not every fine line on my 44 year old face is gone, but there is a glow and a happiness in my skin tone. It isn't cheap but I am also starting to use it on my beat up old hands. It is awesome. I also started using the Vinexpert eye and lip serum and the Premier Cru the Cream. All good. Since the serum goes on first I can totally see how well the product works. I was really hoping my May box would contain a sample of the night oil. No luck. But based on my experience with the serums and creams I am just going to go ahead and order it when it is in stock again. If you try nothing else from Caudalie, try this serum.

Not impressed

I didn't like this serum- it was almost as if I wasn't even applying anything on. Almost too light and watery based. I didn't see any results after finishing the sample either

Great product!

I love this anti-wrinkle defense serum. It has an earthy/plant smell that is clean and refreshing. The texture is soft and creamy. I loved my samples. Since finishing them, I have purchased the product and continue to use daily. I highly recommend this skin care product for your beauty regimen.

I love the caudalie brand. this serum really hydrates and brightens my skin. It is not at all greasy feeling and does not break out my skin.

nice!

I used this serum in the morning before my moisturizer. It immediately made the areas I put it on feel firm and seemed to brighten my eyes under the rim, I am not certain of its long-term effects but it definitely felt like it was working!

I am not a fan of this type of product so I am not a good judge but will say that it went on good and did not smell bad.

I have been putting this on my forehead and around my eyes morning and night for a week with no results either in immediate plumping or wrinkle reduction. Pleasant scent though.

It's hard to make a good review for a product with claims of anti aging, especially with a small sample. I did like the way this serum felt on my face, but for the price, I just can't commit.
