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.

a must have
SampledPurchased

I always have some sort of Vitamin C in my face regimen for it's anti aging and brightening qualities. This one is light and not greasy so it works perfectly. My only complaint is the dropper does not fill up easily as the formula is a bit thick but that does not take away from the efficacy of this product.

I used this on my eyes, though that's not it's intent, and it worked nicely - reduced much of the 56+ sag. Also look great on the rest of my face and neck - gentle, soothing, subtle. Expensive in full size, but it lasts quite a while.

I have been hoping to get my hands on this product in my box and low and behold, here it is for me to try. I think this product would easily keep my skin on the up and up looking awesome but have purchased another set of products from a sample that I tried over a year ago from Birchbox's British sister company so I will try this again once my other ones is closer to being used up but since I purchased a large size of the UK products, which have won over 100 International awards, so I do know that the products I'm using are tip top, as the Brits would say.

excellent

Wasn't sure what I thought of this at first, but when I stopped using it for a few days, I could tell a difference in my skin. It takes a few weeks to see results, but this left my skin soft, dewy and glowing. This also helps with post acne marks. I use this in the morning after washing my face with their cleansing milk, and pat the serum on my skin while it's still damp. I will continue to buy this!

SO I read a bunch of hype about vitamin c products, but I was skeptical. I was pleased to see this in my birchbox. A drop or two smoothed on my skin and I noticed a difference in the texture within a day. I also think my skin is more hydrated and dewy looking. The price tag is high but considering a drop or two is enough, this will last a while. I am pleased with the results.
