I’ve never purchased any of Caudalie’s products as they are quite expensive, but I’ve always had a few of their products on my list of things to try.
The SkinStore kindly offered to send me Caudalie’s new VineActiv range to try out. When I opened the box I was thrilled to see 4 full sized products from Caudalie. I wasn’t expecting that at all.
Here’s what I received…
Caudalie VineActiv Glow Activating Anti-Wrinkle Serum
Price: $52.00 for 30 ml
Caudalie VineActiv 3-in-1 Moisturiser
Price: $44.00 for 40 ml
Caudalie VineActiv Overnight Detox Oil
Price: $50.00 for 30 ml
Caudalie VineActiv Energizing and Smoothing Eye Cream
Price: $39.00 for 15 ml
I’ve been using the skin care line for about 2 months now and really have nothing negative to say about the products. 🙂
The VineActiv line was formulated to fight the effects of a hectic lifestyle and to help correct the intital signs of aging. It’s just what I need in my life.
Every morning I apply the Caudalie VineActiv Energizing and Smoothing Eye Cream around my eye area first. Then I apply the serum to my entire face and neck. After that soaks in I apply the Caudalie VineActiv 3-in-1 Moisturiser.
Before bed I apply the eye cream and then the Caudalie VineActiv Overnight Detox Oil. If I feel like my skin needs some extra moisture then I will apply the Caudalie VineActiv 3-in-1 Moisturiser before the detox oil.
I got into the routine of applying my eye cream first when started using this skin care line as the detox oil contains essential oils that should be avoided around the eye area.
All the products sink into my skin very quickly and don’t leave a film or greasy feel. Even the oil sinks in right away. I’ve experienced 0 breakouts since using the line. I break out easily so wasn’t sure how the dry oil would work for me.
My favourite product of the four is the Caudalie VineActiv Glow Activating Anti-Wrinkle Serum. I use it in the morning as I said and really feel that it brightens my skin and adds a glow.
The products have lasted me quite some time, my bottles are still half full. I initially didn’t like the price tag but don’t think it’s too bad for the quality of the products and also the fact that a little goes along way.
I should mention that I took the skincare line to me with Iceland and the detox oil didn’t travel too well. The jar opened and leaked into my toiletry bag. I was upset that some of the oil was wasted. I actually travelled with it a few times and it only opened once. But thought I should let you know as I wouldn’t want it to happen to you.
Until now I had no idea that Caudalie’s products were more “green”. It makes me even more interested in the brand. All of their products are free of…
- Mineral oils
- Sodium laureth sulfate
- Animal-derived raw materials
I’m really enjoying this skincare line and might repurchase it myself again in the future. There’s so many products to try and it’s hard for me to stick to one product forever.
If you are interested in trying the line you can find it at the SkinStore.
