This is brand spanking new and has literally just hit the shelves here in the UK, say IYYYYA to the Vine [Activ] range from french skincare brand Caudalie. Are you between 20-40 years old? Do you live a stressful, fast-paced life, are you a city dweller, jet-setter or simply have not enough time in the day to do everything you want? If the answer is yes to any of these, then this range could be of interest. With a fast-paced life, comes tiredness, lack of sleep, possibly an unbalanced diet and fatigue…which in turn effects our skin.
The Vine [Activ] range has a perfect cocktail of ingredients to help with fatigue on the skin, dullness, stress and the general ageing process. It’s called the CELL BURNOUT COMPLEX and contains the following:
Grape-seed Polyphenols are the key anti-oxidant (and one of Caudalie’s signature ingredients) and preserve collagen and contain a natural hyaluronic acid. Stabilised Vitamin C acts as dominant anti-ageing ingredient & enhances skin radiance, Vitamin E is another antioxidant that protects the skin and the new star of this complex : SPRUCE EXTRACT. This has been scientifically proven to enhance the action of aforementioned Polyphenols and visa-versa, so these 2 powerhouses combined ensures the skin’s cells defenses are at their peak.
If you know Caudalie and have used it, this rabble is replacing the Polyphenol C15 range (dark green packaging) with exactly the same 4 products : a serum, face cream, eye cream & detox night oil. The point of difference being the addition the Spruce Extract we talked about above. If you liked that range, then this is the one to try! I *had used* the old range and I really rated both the eye cream and the detox night oil so I am intrigued to see if these work just as well on me.
I have tried the Vine [Activ] 3-in-1 moisturiser (albeit for only 2 days!) so I can only share with you my initial thoughts and feels ; absolutely wonderful a light, fresh texture. I feel normal-combo skins will love this in particular and can I say I always have and still love the small tube packaging that Caudalie adopts!
I love the idea of this range. Caudalie is a brand I have used A LOT over the years and I really do rate their skincare, and I like the fact they also do all the tests & research to back up their claims.
