Caudalie Vinexpert Broad Spectrum Radiance Day Cream is a truly beautiful face cream, but it is so much more than just a lovely cream.
It’s packed full of super duper anti ageing properties, courtesy of the humble (or perhaps not so humble) grape.
To explain briefly, grapes contain a substance in their shoots called Vine Reservatrol. This molecule contains some wonderful anti ageing properties and in 2001, Caudalie proposed all the anti-ageing and firming benefits of Vine Resveratrol for the first time, with its Vinexpert line.
This clever little grape shoot extract has the ability to re-densify and activate cell renewal and stimulate collagen production.
Fast forward to 2014 and Caudalie researchers carried out a new European wide test to show the efficiency of Vine Reservatrol.
Its safe to say the study was a resounding success with 92% saying their skin was smoother,
84% said their skin quality was improved and 81% said their skin looked younger.
Those are pretty high percentages!
So, onto the cream itself.
The cream is thick, velvety and a very pretty, sheer pink colour.
It has a lovely gentle, fresh and rejuvenating scent which i found very pleasant.
Though it says it’s designed for dry skin, I actually found it was perfect for my combination/oily skin, with it being absorbed quickly leaving no greasy residue.
Containing SPF 15, the cream left my skin feeling soft and nourished and found that it worked as a pretty great base for my foundation too.
In terms of combating wrinkles, it’s probably a bit too early to tell, though I would certainly say that my skin feels firmer since using it and dare I say, more radiant?
