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.

Totally love

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.

nice
Sampled

I don't usually use anti-wrinkle serums--I haven't quite found myself at that point. But I did like how I felt like my eyes didn't seem as tired/dark after using it. But I feel like I could get the same effect with another product that isn't as pricey.

Too small sample
Sampled

This may be a really good product, but the sample size was so small I can't tell. It made my skin feel nice when I applied the product but it only lasted a couple of days and I really didn't see any difference when using it after 2 days

good face serum

this serum made my skin feel soft and hydrated. I am young and have pretty good skin so I'm not sure if I love the price, but my mom tried my sample and loved it.

This sample is tiny so it's hard to tell if it is actually doing anything BUT I love Caudalie and it feel cool and nice after application. I would like to try it more fully to be sure. It can't be hurting my skin, I don't think.
