The Most Important Thing About The Caudalie Premier Cru Range Is…
Updated for 2022, Caudalie’s Premier Cru range is specifically designed to combat the eight signs of ageing: deep wrinkles, fine lines, a loss of firmness, reduced volume, depleted elasticity, dark spots, a loss of hydration, and dullness. Throughout the collection, Caudalie have harnessed patented technology – developed alongside Harvard Medical School – to smooth wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and reduce dark spots/circles for the ultimate anti-ageing skincare line.
The icing on the cake? The range offers a more sustainable approach to skincare as both of the vegan moisturisers in the collection are recyclable, while they’re also offered in an easy-to-use refill format that is both eco-conscious and economical.
What Skin Type Is It For?
Intended to be used on skin showing signs of ageing, there’s something for everyone with this collection. The Premier Cru The Serum, The Cream and The Eye Cream are all suitable for all skin types, while Caudalie’s The Rich Cream has been specially formulated to offer an extra dose of nourishment to dry complexions. As an added bonus, the high percentage of skin-loving natural ingredients and the natural rose fragrance makes the range ideal for those with sensitive skin in need of some hydration.
You Will Love This Range If…
If you loved the previous Premier Cru range, the updated version is just that bit better due to the shift towards sustainable packaging. Anyone looking to add a luxurious feel to their skincare routine will appreciate the nourishing textures – and, of course, if you’re looking for serious anti-ageing innovation, the Premier Cru range is for you.
A range of natural and high-tech ingredients work together to tackle the signs of ageing and leave an instant radiance. 100% natural hyaluronic acid hydrates and smooths the surface of the skin whilst dark spots and the under-eyes are corrected by Viniferine. Loyal fans of the brand will recognise this powerhouse ingredient; made from vine sap, the Caudalie-patented active, Viniferine, also runs throughout their skin-brightening Vinoperfect range – and it’s dark spot-correcting action is shown to be 62 times more effective than vitamin C.
Although it’s incredibly exciting to see Viniferine feature throughout the Premier Cru range, the thing that really sets this collection apart is TET8™ Patented Technology. In collaboration with Harvard Medical School, Caudalie have created this high-tech innovation to enhance your body’s natural TET enzyme to target youth proteins, reducing the eight key signs of ageing. This active is a true feat in the world of skincare; it took no less than ten years of research to perfect and patent this revolutionary technology.
As if that wasn’t enough, tightening sugars, bio-ceramides and natural pearlisers also feature throughout different formulas to tighten and brighten the skin to give a healthy radiance.
What Do The Products Feel Like?
The various cream textures all feel sumptuously soft, with the richest being the Premier Cru The Rich Cream for the thickest texture and most fluid being the serum and eye cream for fast-absorption. After being massaged into the skin, the products all feel smooth, leaving your skin hydrated without a sticky feeling.
What Does The Range Smell Like?
Aside from the fragrance free eye-cream, the range is scented with a subtle rose floral blend with notes of white cedar and benzoin for the ultimate delicate, natural fragrance. The fragrance is 100% natural so as not to irritate your skin, while still enhancing the luxurious application experience of the Premier Cru range.
How Do You Use The Products?
Each formulation should be applied to cleansed skin. Start by pressing the serum into your skin and then use the metallic applicator of the eye cream to smooth the cream into your under-eye; the cooling sensation helps to reduce puffiness as you work it along the skin. Follow up with your choice of cream moisturisers – the rich version is best for dry, sensitive skin types. The creams should be massaged into the skin using upwards motions to improve skin firmness and elasticity.
What’s Special About The Design Of The Range?
The chic dark purple packaging is luxurious as well as sustainable, making this the perfect set to be proudly displayed on your skincare cabinet. Most of the designs contain a high percentage of recycled plastic and everything can be recycled. As an added bonus, the refill formats reduce waste, even though the glass jar of the original creams are also recyclable!
