This moisturiser from Caudalie is supposed to create "unparalleled age-fighting power," yet if that’s true, Caudalie should own up to the fact that none of their other antiwrinkle products are as good and stop selling them. Of course, they won't do that, and consumers will continue to be puzzled by this brand's many repetitive options claiming to leave their face line-free. As it turns out, this product, whose name is similar to Lauder's Creme de la Mer, shouldn't be at the top of anyone's list of anti-aging moisturisers, or any moisturiser for that matter.
It's a fairly standard blend of water, thickeners, slip agent, and plant oils. Grape, olive, and sesame oils have antioxidant ability, but they show up in lots of other products sold at more realistic prices and with far better formulations. Several of the more enticing ingredients are present in amounts too small for skin to notice, including the peptides. For what Caudalie is charging, those ingredients should be front and centre, not relegated to mere dustings.
At best, this is an overly fragranced moisturizer for normal to dry skin. It cannot, fill wrinkles, lift skin, or reduce discolorations. Lots of other companies offer moisturisers whose formulas come a lot closer to achieving anti-aging results than this does. and with more elegant textures, too.
Strengths: Good cleansers; an excellent scrub for dry skin; air-tight packaging; a good lip balm and moisturising mask; one truly state-of-the-art moisturiser for dry skin (one is better than none).
As much as Caudalie would like you to believe that their botanical cocktails are the sought-after fountain of youth, for the most part, you'd be far better off spending your money on fresh grapes, grape juice, or a vintage bottle of Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon!
