After attending the Caudalie event a few weeks back we were given some goodies of the range to try out! So as promised on my previous post here are the reviews on the range!!

Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser £14.50- This light, gentle cleanser transforms into a lovely airy foam which provides a gentle but soap free cleansing. I used this cleanser all throughout my Holiday to Greece. It was lovely and light to use and cleansed my skin throughly, even though I’m not much of a sun worshipper, you obviously do catch some rays that may make your skin a little sensitive even if you are wearing the highest factor available, I found this cleanser to be the perfect solution. Apply two pumps and sweep on the face in gentle circular motions. Only downer is that it stings like a bitch when it gets in your eyes! Would have been perfect if this was gentle on the eyes!! However this will not stop me from re-buying!!

VinoPerfect Day Perfecting Cream £35.50- Now this product really is one of a kind!! I suffer with a very odd un even skin tone, where my cheeks are very pale and the rest of my face is a shade or two darker. I have been using this cream for around two weeks and the difference is uncanny!! This moisturiser has what Caudalie like to call ‘The Invisible Shield’ which helps to protect your skin from the sun and the effects of free radicals. Main Ingredients: anti-dark spot and radiance boosting Viniferine triturated at 500ppm, gentle grape acid exfoliator, soothing candeia and many more. Since using the VinoPrefect Day Perfecting Cream, my skin tone has evened out at a noticeable level, the duey glow has returned and I even get compliments day in day out on how good my skin looks. I recommend this product to anyone suffering from un even skin tone, sun spots and also Asian skin tones who are known sufferers of un-even skin tones.

VinoSource Quenching Sorbet-Creme £20- Finally the ‘pier de resistance’ Caudalie’s newest launch. Inspired by the grapevine, which regulates its own water to counter climate changes, this amazing moisturiser really helps to restore your skins hydration levels. Many of us who think we drink plenty of water to keep us hydrated all over would be surprised to learn that our skin may well be very parched. This amazing formula (which is suitable for the most sensitive skin types, patch test always recommended) allows deep hydration which leaves your skin velvety smooth and luminous.  A great starting point if you are new to the Caudalie range, It will really prepare your skin to the level it should be and from there you can then go on to a more prescribed regime of the range which suits your needs. All in all a brilliant, simple product with maximum results!!

Caudalie was created in 1995 by Bertrand and Mathilde Thomas, their belief in natural formulas carried them forward and for more than 15 years they have been researching with Dr. Vercauteren from the university of Pharmacy of Bordeaux (France).

I went along to the press launch of Caudalie’s new moisturiser ‘Vinosource Quenching Sorbet-Creme’. It was a lovely event at Caudalie’s head office in london. On arrival I was greeted and introduced to John the Director of the company and Loraine the beauty expert and was offered refreshments. After having a little natter with the fellow bloggers we were asked to sit through a presentation on the company and the new product. After the presentation ended we were all whisked upstairs to have a play with the product and have a one-on-one consultation with the Caudalie Beauty expert. Loraine (Beauty expert) had an in-depth chat with me about my skin and its concerns, after examining my skin she then wrote me a prescription of Caudalie products and handed me over a lovely Caudalie goody bag.

Funny enough I learnt so much at the presentation, my pen could not write fast enough :p.

Caudalie team up with Dr Joseph Vercauteren and established an exclusive patent for extracting and stabilizing grape seed polyphenols. These Polyphenols are apparently the best antioxidants known to the plant world and can only be founded in vine. Some of the key ingredients you will find in the ‘Vinosource Quenching Sorbet-Creme’:

Grape water When the vine is subjected to very harsh weather conditions it protects itself, storing its water in it shoots and roots. Grape water is extracted during the harvesting period. It is rich in Polysaccharides that have the ability to capture and conserve the quantity it needs within its cells. Clinical results show a 127% increase in hydration immediately after application. Grape water is also rich in potassium and calcium which help to sooth the skin. Clinical test show that it reduces discomfort and dryness by 62%.

Vinolevure-  (Exclusive to Caudalie) is a molecule extracted from the walls of wine yeast. It has hydration, strengthening qualities and can conserve up to 100 times its weight in water, this prevents dehydration of the epidermis.

Grape-seed Polyphenols- The grape seed Polyphenols are the most powerful antioxidants in the plant kingdom and are 10,000 times more effective than Vitamin E (how interesting). They act as a shield for the skin protecting from any external damage and helping the skin to maintain its hyaluronic acid content. They also protect the skin’s collagen fibres and elastin.

The ingredients sound so important and amazing, I am very much looking forward to get cracking and bring you guys some reviews after I have used the range. Caudalie lovers… I want to hear from you, what are your favorite products and why do you love the brand so much? Contact me I would love to hear from you 🙂

Here are some images from the press Launch today 🙂
