Caudalie VineActiv: Skincare For The Modern Day Superwomen

Life would be simple if it evolved around one thing. Work, family, exercising, socialising all take an abundance of energy, making keeping the plates of life spinning is an exhausting task. Whilst we want to have it all, there’s no denying that a busy lifestyle takes its toll on the skin. Lack of sleep, free radicals and stress all show up in the form of tired, dull skin. That’s why, French skincare brand Caudalie have curated a skincare range that has been expertly formulated for the modern day superwomen.

About the range…

Caudalie VineActiv

The ages of 20 and 33, our skin loses around 10% of its elasticity, whilst its level of vitamin C and E concentration also plummets – making it ever difficult to look fresh and refreshed every day. Speaking to Glamour magazine, brand founder, Mathilde Thomas says: “Skin begins to look tired and dull, wrinkles begin to appear, and it takes longer to recover from the long days and late nights associated with modern living. This is skin cell burnout.”

But Caudalie have formulated an innovative solution: VineActiv. Built to tackle fine lines, wrinkles and a tired complexion, the VineActiv range is a line of ‘intelligent’ products which packed with AntiCell Burn-Out Complex.

Bursting with a powerful dose of grape polyphenols, the most powerful antioxidant in the plant world, the product’s have been expertly formulated to protect the skin from external aggressors and preserve radiance.

Key ingredients:

  • Vitamin C works to brighten the skin
  • Vitamin E targets sebum and keeps skin supple
  • Hyaluronic acid to moisturise and hydrate
  • Botanical antioxidants fight cell damage by oxidative stress, preserve collagen and boost moisture levels.

In the morning…

First step: Caudalie Vineactiv Glow Activating Wrinkle Serum

Apply the serum to a clean, fresh face. A highly concentrated formula packed with grape based antioxidants; the serum creates a ‘second skin’ like effect – protecting against aggressive factors such as pollution and stress. The lightweight texture effortlessly melts into the skin, infusing the skin cells with a high concentration of anti cell burnout complex, perfect for combatting fine lines and wrinkles throughout the day.

How to apply: Apply morning and evening to your face, neck and décolleté.

Second step:  Caudalie VineActiv 3-in-1 Moisturizer

A light, nourishing cream, this is the perfect moisturiser for the day time. A skin saviour for the city slicker, it works hard to limit the quantity of pollutant particles deposited onto the skin, visibly soothing wrinkles and restoring a healthy glow with little effort. The product’s Hyaluronic acid element replenishes the skin, whilst the soft-focus pigments play with light to create a natural light effect.

How to apply: Apply morning and evening, to the face, neck and décolleté. Use after Glow Activating Wrinkle Serum.

Third Step: Caudalie Vineactiv Energising and Soothing Eye Cream

Wake up tired, weary eyes with this soothing eye cream. A gentle yet effective cream, it combines Horse Chestnut and Liquorice to target pesky dark circles and puffiness. As with the entire range, the brand’s Anti Cell Burnout Complex reinforces the skin’s natural defences and helps to target the impact of ageing. Melting in to the skin, the Vitamin C element restores a healthy glow whilst the Vitamin E provides antioxidant protection.

How to apply: Squeeze a penny size amount of eye cream onto the finger and dab four dots of the product under the eye.

In the evening:

Step four: Caudalie Vineactiv Overnight Detox Oil

Nourish and repair your skin after a long day at the office with this detoxifying night oil. Bursting with Omega 6 and Vitamin E, its gentle formula is suitable for all skin types. Comfort tired, aggravated skin from the aggression of the day with the product’s ingredients such as olive Uva and essential oils Neroli, Lavender, Carrot, Sandalwood, White Wood and Petitgrain.

How to apply: apply 6 drop of the oil onto the finger tips and massage in an upright motion. Use before the Caudalie VineActiv 3-in-1 Moisturizer.
