I called Birchbox to get a recommendation for a good product to use and they suggested this- apparently several of the girls there use this brand and this particular product. I am so glad I called because this has done wonders for my super dry skin!! Almost immediately it left my face and neck super silky and helped tremendously with my severely dry skin. I also use it around my eyes as an eye cream. The pumping mechanism makes the bottle last a while- so I feel like I can justify the price :) It's great and I highly recommend it!
I've been searching and searching for a serum that will moisturize my dry skin. Now, I don't have bad dry skin, however, especially in the winters, I need that extra boost to keep my skin looking great. This is worth every penny. Once it's on, your skin is quenched, pores are clear, and you're ready to apply the rest of your skincare routine.
Dried out my skin
I purchased this product because I love the Caudalie hand and nail lotion. I was hoping this would be a great serum. Unfortunately, this serum didn't work me. When I started using it (and changed nothing else with my facial routine) I developed dry patches on my skin. After removing this from my facial routine, my skin returned to normal.
Unfortunately, this didn't work for me and I can't recommended it.
I purchased this serum because of the price and it is truly a case of "you get what you pay for". I wasn't crazy about it...it simply did not change the texture of my skin at all. I finished the bottle but will not purchase again.
This serum is the perfect balance of moisturizing well and drying quickly. It glides on your face and absorbs into your skin very quickly, yet your skin feels hydrated, not dry again. It works so well before a moisturizer (especially Caudalie's Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet). It's also great to wear in the morning before you put make-up on since it isn't heavy and soaks into the skin quickly. I definitely consider this a holy grail product!
I love that I got a deluxe sample size of Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum with this order as well as two great samples through the Birchbox Mystery Sample Pack. Great deal!
