Caudalie Premier Cru + WIWT

Morning ladies today I'm talking skincare & in particular a relatively new brand you may or may not of heard of called Caudalie.  A brand that favour 'natural & environmentally friendly active ingredients'.  Who are against animal testing & whose products contain 0% paragons, phenoxyethand, phthalates, mineral oils, sodium laureate sulphate or animal ingredients.

With a variety of products to target various skin specifics & skin types their newest range is their Premier Cru range which has been designed to offer the ultimate anti-ageing products.

Inspired by the vintages of Bordeaux, the Premier Cru products are an exclusive blend of Caudalie's patents (Resveratrol, Viniferine & Polyphenols), which offer high performance active ingredients to correct all the signs of ageing in a single step.

I've been lucky enough to have been sent a couple of their products from this range to try - the Premier Cru eye cream & also a sample of the Premier Cru The Cream.

So starting with the eye cream, which is designed to instantly transform eyes, which as someone who's permanently tired, I was eager to see if it could offer any benefits.  On their site the eye cream is described as a cream that will perfectly hydrate & smooth the skin whilst also making the skin firmer in appearance.  That is designed to fade any puffiness & dark circles & brightening the eye area with renewed youth - yes please to all of that!

I've been using the eye cream for approximately 4 weeks now, applying both morning & evening &  whilst the cream is definitely a thicker texture to eye creams I have previously used.  I have found the cream lovely & light to apply, with quick absorption & feel that it has definitely made a difference to the appearance to the skin around my eyes & reduced the puffiness, so much so that I shall definitely continue using the product.  Plus it can also be used on the lip contour area so I've also been applying the excess on my fingertips to my lip contour of an evening too - something I'd never previously thought of doing.

Moving onto The Cream, this should also be applied morning & evening but as I already use my hyaluronic gel I've just been applying it after the gel of an evening.  Again the cream is designed to make skin visibly younger with the aim to smooth wrinkles, firm & define facial contours & create a more even & radiant complexion.  Now I'm always a little apprehensive using a product that is called a cream as I always think it's going to be too rich & heavy for my skin but that wasn't the case & like the eye cream the facial cream was light in texture & easily & quickly absorbed into my skin.  However, if you do prefer something a little richer then they also offer La Creme Riche in the same range together with the Premier Cru The Elixir Facial Serum, which can be used both morning & evening & applied to the face, neck & decollete areas.

I have to admit to being really impressed with the products I've tried & would definitely recommend them (in fact my Mum has already placed an order on my endorsement), especially if you're looking for products that are natural & not tested on animals.  As I mentioned they have a whole host of skincare to suit different needs, which you can see here.  Plus if you sign up to their newsletter they'll even give you 10% off your first order :-)

Back to today & I'm breaking out one of my breton styled sweatshirts.  As I mentioned in a previous post (see here) I'm really impressed by the quality of these & such a fab price point too it would be rude not to & definitely another of my 'must have' recommendations.

    1. They really are fantastic tops Chris & even better that they're in the sale :-) It just goes to show you shouldn't rule any brand out in terms of finding clothes that you love.
      Hope you love them as much as I do when they arrive.
