Frequently Asked Questions

Beauty advice

1 - What are serums for?

Applying a serum before your day and/or night creams boosts their effectiveness. The texture of serums is finer, so it is absorbed more quickly into the skin. Caudalie serums are highly concentrated in active ingredients and can be used every day, morning and evening. It's the skincare product to start using for optimal effectiveness and quicker visible results.
At Caudalie, we have several types of serum:
If you would like to combat dark spots and make your complexion glow, we recommend our Vinoperfect Serum, our worldwide best-seller.
If you would like to boost hydration and soothe your sensitive skin, we suggest Vinosource S.O.S Serum.
If you would like to help reduce the appearance of imperfections and tightens pores, we suggest Vinopure Skin Pefecting Serum.
If you would like your skin to be firmer and denser, we recommend Resveratrol[Lift] Serum.
If you would like anti-wrinkle effectiveness and a glowing complexion, opt for the Vine[Activ] Serum.
Finally, if you would like to combat all the signs of ageing, we advise Premier Cru The Serum.

2 - What is the difference between a cream and a fluid?

Fluids are light – almost liquid – to enable them to penetrate the skin rapidly. Therefore they moisturize without leaving a shiny finish. They are also oil-free and non-comedogenic. That is why we generally recommend them for combination and oily skin types. Unlike fluids, creams generally have a rich, creamy texture: they thoroughly nourish and moisturize the skin. They are ideal for dry to very dry skin types.

3 - Can products from different ranges be used together?

Products from any of the ranges may be used together. Please keep in mind that if you are seeking to correct a specific problem (such as dark spots or a loss of tone), it is advisable to use the full range targeting that issue (serum, day treatment, night cream and eye contour care) since the products are complementary and produce the best results when used together.

4 - At what age should I start using an anti-aging cream?

There is no precise age for starting to use anti-aging skincare.
From the age of 20, we recommend you use antioxidant and moisturizing skincare, such as the Vinosource line.
From the first signs of aging, we advise you use the Vine[Activ] line to prevent and correct early wrinkles and lack of radiance.
When you feel your skin is losing firmness and the facial contours are slackening slightly, we recommend you use the Resveratrol[Lift] line.
Finally, if you would like to correct all the signs of aging – wrinkles, firmness and dark spots – the Premier Cru Line was made for you.

5 - I have sensitive skin, can I use Caudalie products?

Certain Caudalie products have been specifically tested on sensitive skin to minimize the risk of reaction and soothe the most reactive skin.

We recommend the following products specifically tested on sensitive skin:

Grape Water Grape water
Gentle Buffing Cream
Vinosource Overnight Oil
Vinosource Sorbet

If your skin is very sensitive, we recommend that you consult your dermatologist before use.
