Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Review!

Good evening!

I know this post comes a little later than expected (so unlike me, right? Naat..)
But I wanted to wait until we had official launch day of the product in work, which was yesterday!
Anyone who knows me, or who has been following my blog for a while will know how utterly OBSESSED I am with Caudalie. I love Caudalie. I know I'm throwing that word around a lot, but I'm currently not in love with any person so there's room for me to be in love with a Skincare range! 
I had never heard of Caudalie before I started working in Foody's Pharmacy 3 years ago, and to think of what I used to use on my skin makes me shudder to my core. Here's a little background info on this range for those of you who havent heard of it.(If you have met me, you can probably skim past this part as I never shut up about this range.) 

Caudalie is a French range, it is 100% natural and made from organic ingredients, with the modest grape being the most important ingredient. The grape contains many parts,and each part has a function for the skin, fighting against wrinkles and correcting damage already done. Caudalie split the grape in to 3 Parts and Patented these three parts, they are as follows: 

Polyphenols- the juice of the grape
Vinifrene- The sap of the grapevine
Resveratrol- the Stalk of the grapevine 

In another blog I will delve further in to each patent, but for now I will be concentrating on Polyphenols, and C15 to be more precise. 

I am lucky enough to work in a pharmacy that sells my favourite Skincare product because it means I have the luxury of being trained to know all about the range, and also it means I can try out everything in the range, therefore being able to give real advice about it. 

Caudalie recently sent me an amazing pack with the entire Polyphenol C15 range for me to try, and review on my blog- Thank you guys!! I was so excited bringing home my new treats to try! There is nothing in Caudalie that I don't like, so I knew I would love this range, but I wasn't prepared for the sheer volume of love I now have for it. 

Caudalie have developed this revolutionary range which is changing the skin of women and men around the world. Did you know that you can prevent 4/5 wrinkles? Did you know that FREE RADICALS are the first and main cause of ageing in the skin? Did you know that the first thing Free Radicals will attack is Hyaluronic Acid? Did you also know that by using this new range in Caudalie that you can correct and prevent all of this? 

Caudalie have added and stabilised Vitamin C to their patented ingredient Polyphenol. The combination of the two ingredients has produced incredible results. This powerful duo will BLOCK the skin from Free Radicals 100% and will also CORRECT damage that has been done to the skin. Read on to see how I found the products....

I can safely say that it is my favourite range so far. Here's a line up of the products:  

First off my favourite piece- The Overnight Detox Oil-

If I could drink this oil I would. This is a night oil, applied to the face after cleansing and before your night time moisturiser. I have been using it for 2 weeks now and the change in my skin is incredible. My skin is so clear, so glowing when I wake up in the morning, it has never looked better. For the first time in a while I can actually SEE my skin. I use this oil every night and on alternate nights I'll use it before my Serum. This oil, like the entire range is 100% natural. Which means no parabens, no alcohol and no perfume among some of the nasty additives present in so many Skincare ranges. Over night this oil helps tired skin regenerate and rejuvenate leaving you with detoxed and glowing skin when you wake. This has totally changed my skin. Every morning I wake up and my skin feels so soft and looks so fresh. So much so that last week I didn't wear foundation to work! Being a girl, you will know how big that is..And I didn't wear it because I didn't want to cover up my new found skin. 

The difference I have seen in my skin in two week is amazing, you NEED to try this oil. 

Next up: the Fluid: 

Even though I wasn't wearing make up, I made sure that I had this fluid on so I and SPF. If you do one thing today to change your skincare regime start wearing SPF. I cannot stress this enough. People don't realise the damage the sun is doing to their skin and by not wearing any SPF you are allowing your bare skin to be destroyed and aged by the sun's harmful rays. Even on days when the sun is hidden behind colours, the rays are still there so never leave the house with SPF! I love the fluid texture of this, it's perfect before my make up and it glides on the skin. I have oil combination skin so this balances the oils in my skin keeping me shine free all day. I love this!

Next up- The Anti-Wrinkle Serum-

As well as the two powerful ingredients, this serum also contains Hyaluronic Acid which moisturises and plumps the skin giving it back it's youth after it's attack by the free radicals. This is very high in antioxidants, and will correct and defend the skin from further damage. I use this either on it's own day or night before my cream or oil. This serum feels amazing on my skin, it clears my skin of any dullness and makes it look incredibly youthful and radiant. This is my favouorte serum in the Caudalie Range with the Radiance serum coming a very close second. 

Next up- Eye and Lip Cream 

This little bottle is quite the miracle worker.. Packed full of polyphenols, vitamin C and antioxidants, this eye and lip cream will ensure that bags and dark circles will be happily banished. You should always use a different cream on your eyes than you use on your face because the skin is so different on both and your eye cannot take as much product as the rest of your face. This is a light texture but leaves your eyes and lip area feeling refreshed, soothed and firmed. 

So that's the range in a nutshell. As you can tell I LOVE it. It gets a big thumbs up from me and in terms of what it has done for my skin, I am giving this a 10/10.. If you don't use Caudalie you NEED to start. I cannot stress enough how much I love this entire range, I can honestly say I will NEVER change. The difference in my skin is incredible since I began using this three years ago, and I've seen even more of an improvement since starting the C15 range. If you're ever around Ballina then call in and I can give you some samples to try the range yourself- your skin will thank you! 

Here are some pictures of our Launch at work we had such a great day ! Huge thanks to Hannah Ferguson of Crimson Threads who popped in and got some samples! 

Me and my favourite Vinotherapist in the entire world and the woman who introduced me and trained me in Caudalie- Krissy! 

Til debt do us part,
