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.

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.

Didn't see a difference

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.

Great product, especially for summer!

I liked this serum immensely and was thrilled with the results. Especially in the summer when I am so tough on my skin (swimming, boating, spending a lot of time outside). It is a much needed reviver!

But hard to tell what it could really do given the sample size. Caudalie products continue to impress me though, I would buy this, but it's too expensive.

I wish this was more affordable!

I was surprised at how much I like the serum! I just wish it was a little more inexpensive, but maybe worth the cost if I didn't buy other face products as well. I may consider buying some when I'm out of my other products.

I just stated using heavier serums and night creams on my face. I never saw a need, but then woke up one morning wishing I had started years ago. The wrinkles appeared overnight. This serum is nice. It made my skin feel great. I just don't know if I can justify the cost yet.
