When I received one of Caudalie’s signature wine stain-coloured bags containing their bestselling dark spot correcting Vinoperfect radiance serum and brand-new Glycolic Peel Mask, I tried them both that very evening. If there’s one thing that is key to achieving my number one skin goal – a glowing complexion – it’s even skin tone. And the Vinoperfect collection is designed to deliver exactly that: correcting the appearance of dark spots for a brighter complexion. I thought I was already familiar with the well-loved – and one of my all-time favourite – serums, but it’s had a revamp. A risky strategy when it’s already the no.1 anti-dark spot product in France. But the new formula promises to reduce the colour intensity of dark spots by 63% after one bottle. A pretty bold statement. And if you’d like to try it for yourself, you’re in luck because I’m running a giveaway to win the entire Vinoperfect range worth £170. Just head over to my Instagram page here and follow the instructions. Here’s what’s up for grabs – you could be in for a real treat!
I usually start in the order in which you would use the products in the skincare routine, but here I had to kick off with this 98% natural serum. The star of the show, this light yet hydrating milky serum has been reformulated for even more impressive radiance-boosting results. Thanks to Viniferine, a Caudalie patented ingredient derived from vine sap, the serum tackles dark spots whether caused by sun damage, acne scarring or melasma, and is proven to be 62 times more effective at doing this than the much loved vitamin C. For me this product is a staple in achieving glowing skin. 30ml RRP £46.00
The first time I introduced this essence into my skincare routine I struggled to see the point of adding an extra beauty step, but once Caudalie’s National Training Manager highlighted to me that applying the essence before the serum doubles its effectiveness, I was sold. The gentle glycolic essence removes dead cell build up to prepare skin for the serum application. A hard-working duo. 150ml RRP £23.00
Even if an even skin tone isn’t top of your skincare priorities, this remains a great moisturiser: a velvety texture that provides all-day hydration, my combination dehydrated skin feels nourished and balanced throughout the day. Rich in niacinamide – another very popular ingredient that tackles uneven skin tone – and natural pearly particles, it delivers a much needed radiance boost to my tired skin. 50ml RRP £34.00
This 95% natural night cream is new to me: containing glycolic acid and papaya enzymes, it works through the night as a gentle peel to reduce dark spots and prepare your skin for its morning routine. And as with all Caudalie Vinoperfect products it offers a very delicate fragrance, this one a green citrussy blend of bergamot, sweet orange, mandarin and lemon wood. 50ml RRP £34.00
If you need a weekly glow boost then this 96% natural glycolic peel mask will deliver a smooth skin canvas on which to paint your potions. Containing natural AHAs and the signature Viniferine ingredient, the mask only needs 10 minutes’ application to work away at dead skin cells and refine skin texture. Although I didn’t have any redness from using it, if you’ve got sensitive skin you’ll want to do a patch test or keep away altogether. And don’t forget to protect skin with SPF during the day! 75ml RRP £22.00
If there’s one place that dark spots appear as fast as on the face – or even faster – it’s on the back of your hands. I now have a couple of spots that have made an appearance and refuse to fade away come winter, so I’m well aware my hands need some attention too. With daily exposure to the elements, hands tend to take a battering, so this shea butter and avocado oil hand cream works to not only nourish, but correct and prevent dark spots. This beautiful non-sticky cream has earned its place on my bedside table for pre-bedtime application. 50ml RRP £12.00
So that’s the complete Caudalie Vinoperfect range, worth £170. For your chance to win it in full, head over to my Instagram page here. Good luck!
