Earlier in the year Caudalie released a new range, Vine[ACTIV], which is an upgrade from the C15 Polyphenols range launched a couple of years ago. There are 4 products in total, 3 new (serum, eye cream and moisturizer) and the Night Detox Oil which has simply been repackaged (I still have the old package as I’ve had this oil for a while).
I really like Caudalie’s products but I feel this range is a bit hit or miss, and there’s nothing really amazing about it as with other products from the brand. You can find the full ingredients list for all products if you scroll down below.
Starting with the Glow Activating Anti-Wrinkle Serum ¦ £36.00 here, I think it’s one of favorite products from this range, it’s a lightweight serum packed with anti-oxidants, can be used morning/night but I rather use it in the morning to help protect my skin from free radicals. It’s very lightweight and it absorbs quickly, it’s quite moisturizing but I don’t see any additional glow while using it.
The 3-in-1 Moisturizer ¦ £32.00 here has also a light and velvety texture that moisturizes the skin without leaving it sticky, it’s perfect for the summer months but not quite enough for the winter when my skin gets drier, which is odd because this does have quite a big amount of shea butter, if you have oily skin I would shy away from it as it might cause breakouts.
I’ve tried so much to love the Overnight Detox Oil ¦30.00 here but to be honest I can’t. I used to love the old purifying oil from Caudalie, which was discontinued a few years ago. To be honest I don’t see any results by using this and I’m not really sure what I’m supposed to see on my skin, I also never used this regularly, as I like to results fast and if I don’t I just stop using something. I’m actually trying to finish some of my products so I will try to use this more regularly and shall report back.
As for the Eye Cream ¦ £27.50 here, I spoke about it here. It’s lightweight and moisturizing but definitely not smoothing and anti-wrinkle. I have a few fine lines around my eye area and this did nothing for them.
Have you tried any of these? Do you have any favorites? I’m dying to try the new Essence, let me know your thoughts about it.
