French Skincare

It all started with a sample I received ten years ago.  It was Caudalie's Pulpe Vitaminée Moisturizing Cream...the texture, the smell, the effects on my skin... the whole experience had me captivated. 
  Pulpe Vitaminée Moisturizing Cream
Since then, sure I have strayed and cheated and tried other brands hoping for great results, but have found no other line that offers non-irritating formulas that deliver (even at a bit of a price).

Shortly before the holidays, I ran out of everything! Quelle horreur!!  But my loving family came to the rescue and got me stocked up for a short while.  First and foremost with my twice daily staple:

Instant Foaming Cleanser
{Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser}
A delightful foamy cloud dispensed through a pump for thorough, gentle cleansing (yes, even mascara!)

In addition to this cleanser, I am trying two new products:

{Caudalie Vinoperfect Enzymatic Peel Masque & Vinosource Quenching Sorbet-Crème}

The mask leaves my skin more even-toned, super soft and glowing and the moisturizer is so light it absorbs almost instantly but moisturizes my winter skin perfectly.  Winners!

Other Caudalie faves (particularly for spring and summer perfect skin}...

Vinopure Matte Finishing Fluid
{Vinopure Matte Finishing Fluid...absolute FAVORITE Caudalie product}

Vinopure Balancing Concentrate
{Vinopure Balancing Concentrate..a lightweight oil to help clear & purify the skin...I know you're cringing that it is oil, but trust me, it works well}

For the record, I am in no way affiliated with or endorsing Caudalie.  I just feel excited when I find products that work among the sea of many.  So, what skincare secrets are you keeping?
