And the best facial moisturizer goes to…. Caudalíe Premier Cru!
What’s up with this moisturizer? People seem to love this cream, they said it’s very hydrating, smells good, lasts a long time etc…
While Allure Magazine’s recommendation is almost always good, I’d say that this cream can be either a hit or a miss. It depends on what you really prefer for a cream, and it also depends on your skin condition.
First and foremost, this cream is extreeeeemely thick! I almost cannot scoop it out with my fingers. You will definitely need a scoop for this. A little definitely goes a long way, but even a little amount takes a long long time to spread evenly on your fingers. You’re gonna need to 2 hands to warm and rub it together. It is quite a work.
I specially like my mosturizers to be creamy, smooth and soft. This one is a bit too much.
Upon application, this cream is indeed hydrating, no doubt about it. For someone like me who has dry skin, this is a big help, however, I find this cream to be too hydrating that it almost sits on my skin and I just felt “oily” all the time. It’s like I can feel this cream being always on my face. It felt very uncomfortable. I didn’t even put too much, but I guess this is just how this cream works.
What I love about this cream are its ingredients. Think red wine, as in resveratrol, polyphenol and hyaluronic acid, the main anti-aging formula.
While I love the concept of an all out anti-aging moisturizer, with a good packaging and a not-so-bad, grape-like scent. I do not really feel like using a very thick cream, almost clay-like on my face. I prefer a cream that’s easy to apply and absorbs fast on my skin, at the same time feels very hydrating. I can only recommend this cream for winter, if you need protection against cold, wind and snow.
