After I finish the Chanel Le Blanc serum I wanted to find a cheaper alternative. I read many good reviews on the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and purchased a bottle to try. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now.
From Sephora’s description this serum claims to be oil-free, improve appearance of dark spots, and even out skintone to a brighter complexion. Its main ingredient is Viniferine, a natural compound found in vine sap known to brighten, lighten, and even skin, which was patented by Caudalie in 2004. It also claims that Viniferine is more effective than Vitamin C and arbutin in terms of brightening. The 1 oz bottle is sold for $79.
This serum is very lightweight. It goes on the face very smoothly and absorbs quickly. I like how it is oil free and made with natural ingredients and is non-comedogenic. It also has a scent that I can’t really describe, which is not offensive to me and disappears fairly quickly after application. One pump or squeeze is enough to cover my entire face. I use it morning and night under a moisturizer.
I’ve got to say this product does do what it claims. At least for me it did. Within the three weeks period of using this serum I find my skin to be more brightened. My hyperpigmentation from my past acnes are fading albeit slowly. I wake up every day to a glowy skin. I will continue to use this and see what happens. So far I like it better than the pricey Chanel Le Blanc serum and it seems to work better too considering that I see results quicker.
If I have to say one thing I don’t like about this product it will be that it leaves a sticky residue on my hands after application. I don’t know why although it is lightweight and fresh on my face, it is the opposite on my hands. Really weird.
Overall, I really like this serum and probably will repurchase. I’ve also started to use a moisturizer from Caudalie and so far I like it too. I’m really impressed with Caudalie and will try out more of their products.
