Caudalie is from France. The basis of it's products are from grapes. The founders own a winery in France and they expand to developing skincare somewhere in 1993.
Last year, I was invited by Sasa Malaysia (organised by Sasa Hong Kong) to try out their new range, Caudalie Vinosource (pink range).
- Grape Water® extracted from organic grapes during harvesting rich in polysaccharides that have the ability to capture water and conserve the quantity it needs within its cells;
- Vinolevure® (exclusive to Caudalie) which is extracted from the walls of wine yeast with unique hydrating, strengthening and protective qualities and can conserve up to 100 times its weight in water; and
- Grape-seed Polyphenols, the most powerful anti-oxidants in the plant kingdom, they block 100% of free radicals and are 10,000 times more effective than Vitamin E.
Texture: Light cream but turn liquid upon face, light a wet mousse.
Absorption: Very quick. Leave no residue.
Smell: None for me
Ingredients: There are no harmful ingredients such as parabens, phenoxyethanol, phthalates, coloring agents, mineral oils and silicones
Packaging: I love pumps because it is hygienic and great for travelling as it won't spill (I always keep caps). But this pump is not possible to open/detached from the bottle. So I can't really dig in for any last drop lol.
I have heard many experts saying that oily skin is also the result of dehydrated skin, as in not much moisture/water under the face epidermis. This medium size moisturiser lasted me about 2 months.
Verdict: I like it ^^ I will continue to use it. I have no breakout using this, except the occasional zits that occur prior menstrual. I do feel less oily on my face, but only a minimal less. It is not yet my personal HG moisturiser, but it can be considered. I'm looking forward to know my face condition after the 3rd bottle :)
