Hey Y’all! Guess who’s back? Back again?…How’s everyone doing? For me, it’s been quite a gloomy loomy day. I could sense the fall coming, then winter is coming, then John Snow is coming….woot! y’all calm down! chillax! Back to my main purpose and intention here 🙂 , I have a question for you? Did you keep your Sephora Beauty Insider points? (at least until it reaches 500 points) because if you did not, then you might miss out on their 500 points reward. Thank goodness I kept mine this time because I usually claim them right after garnering a 100 points.
So what did I claim for my Beauty Insider 500 points? Some samples of Caudalie’s best-selling skincare products. For those of you who have kept their points and tried these, tell us about your experience, but as for me, I think they’re nothing but wonderful. And as you all know, Caudalie makes some of the best skincare products out there.
Three of the samples were about 0.5 oz to 0.33 oz each, with the fourth one being 1.69 oz. There’s not a lot of products in them, perhaps good only for a week or a week and a half of constant sampling or application.
- Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum (0.33 oz) – This is one of Caudalie’s cult product because it corrects dark spots and a lot of people love it. It’s meant to promote skin radiance, counteracts acne marks and evens skin tone. It’s also great for all skin types. While a week of sampling may not be enough to see its lightening benefits, I find that I like the serum a lot. I love its sweet yet light grape scent, and my skin absorbs it easily without any untoward reactions.
- Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water (1.69 oz) – A refreshing micellar water that removes both waterproof and non-waterproof makeup easily. It can also remove eye makeups gently and has an orange-lemon-mint scent. At the beginning, I thought it smelled like green tea, which I still think it does and it also feels a bit sticky but not extremely sticky. I like this a lot because it’s indeed a refreshing take on the simple yet incredible micellar water.
- Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet (0.33 oz) – Great for anybody with a sensitive skin. This gel-like cream is easily absorbed by the skin without any negative reactions. It’s very soothing just like the Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. In fact, both of them almost have the same scent, but this Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet has a much lighter and even fresher scent. Like a fresh grapevine, or if my sense of smell serves me right, a fresh page of a magazine. Don’t get me wrong, I lurve the scent of a fresh page of a magazine, (LOL, perhaps my sense of smell has gone bonkers,) specially when there’s a perfume sample attached to it.
- Caudalie Instant Detox Mask (0.5 oz) – This is a purifying mask for combination to oily skin that’s prone to breakouts, like mine. It’s meant to diminish the appearance of pores and removes dead skin cells. Also has a soothing bergamot and lavender scent that you just can’t get enough of. I like this mask a lot because it made my skin feel clean and oil-free for quite some time. It also makes my skin feel supple to touch. The mask itself is pink-colored and you need to apply fast because it dries quickly, but it’s not streaky unlike some facial masks out there and it’s very easy to rinse it out.
So what’s my favorite among the four Caudalie faves? I really like the Instant Detox Mask, followed by the Micellar Cleansing Water, then the Vinoperfect Radiance Serum. In fact, I like them all and might eventually buy all of them in the future.
