I had a skin consultation years ago and they said I had sun damage around my eyes (eek!) so I always make sure to protect the eye area and help prevent wrinkles in the future. So far I don't have wrinkles or creases around my eyes, so those creams must have been working all those years! Eye creams can be hard to get right, some are too thick and sit on your skin without blending in, I find the Kiehl's Creamy Avocado Cream too heavy for me. The Caudalie Energizing and Smoothing Eye Cream* is a really gentle and light texture, I can barely feel it on my skin. I like how it blends in nicely and a good base for your makeup. It's packed with vitamins E & C and antioxidants to help strengthen the delicate eye area as well as licorice extract and horse chestnut to help sort out those dark circles. It can also be used around the lip area to keep them smooth.
I've really been enjoying using the Caudalie 3-in-1 moisturiser* - Anti pollution, anti wrinkle, healthy glow - everything you want from a moisteriser! This is a great everyday moisturiser, they call it a 'daily savior for urban skin' so helps against pollutants and other nasties that get on our face. The combination of hyaluronice acid and anti cell burn out complex helps keep your skin plump and smooth. I love applying this cream, it's so effortless and not thick and heavy at all for an anti wrinkle cream.
Before using the 3 in 1 moisteriser, I pop on their Glow-Activating Anti Wrinkle serum*. Serums as great as they're jammed packed with goodness. This serum has anti-oxidant polyphenols to help give your skin that healthy glow that we all want. It also contains hyaluronic acid, which adds moisture and plumping effect as well as anti-oxidant vitamin C. It's a cream formula so feels comfortable on the skin and easy to apply. Most serums I've used are gel like texture and can feel slightly tacky on the skin, this formula is like an amp up moisteriser.
My favourite product of this range is the Overnight Detox Oil* I love using facial oils as I find them really nourishing and effective. This 100% natural Detox Oil renews, protects and regenerates your skin over night. It contains omega 6 and 6 essential oils to detoxify the skin. I had high hopes for this product and every morning my skin feels and look smooth, firm and a little bit more refreshed. I like the dropper application and the bottle looks so nice and luxe! The only downside is I'm not keen on the smell, which is odd as I always love the scents of Caudalie products but I guess it's the combination of all those natural ingredients!
