Once upon a time (about five weeks ago) in a land far far away (at my desk, where I am sitting right now), I had a serious decision to make. Really serious. I had to decide which fantastic skincare product to use on vacation! Yes, my life is tough.
You see, I wanted the incredible radiance that Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum gives on contact, but I knew I should be wearing sunscreen. 99% of the time I use both in layers, but in the crazy hot first week of August, I thought that more than one layer of skincare product would be a bit too much for the matte yet slightly dewy look I was going for. If I was going to be outside for more than a couple of minutes, the choice would be clear – sunscreen. But I was going to be mostly inside one particular day, so the question remained: which product to use? As I sat there I checked my mail, and saw that the good folks at Caudalie were sending me their new Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Fluid SPF 15 for review. Suddenly, I didn’t have to choose – I would be able to get that radiant look and be wearing a SPF!
But the sum is greater than its’ parts in the case of Caudalie’s Day Perfecting Fluid. Not only did it make my skin radiant, supple, and provide the perfect base for makeup, it also evened out my skin tone immediately without foundation. I was instantly hooked. The texture of the formula is so silky too – it really feels like you have nothing on your skin, and it is incredibly gentle – which I love for a product with a SPF.
It definitely smoothed out little lines on Lyn and I, and as I said, it really evened out skin tone. So we decided to test it out on our father, who can be rather errant when it comes to SPF. (We call this “Skin Care Ninja-ing” – a quick sweep of moisturizer across his forehead and onto his temples when he’s not looking). He looked FANTASTIC. The lines on his forehead just disappeared with one use. While Day Perfecting Fluid is a beige-y color in your palm before application, it imparts no color to the skin, but smooths lines in no time flat, so it’s definitely a product men can use as well when looking for a SPF with a matte finish (aka doesn’t look like he has anything on, SPF or otherwise).
Lyn and I have both been using Caudalie Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Fluid SPF 15 for a few weeks now and we love it. It’s not sticky or greasy on the hottest of summer days, and keeps you looking fresh no matter what. It’s a great addition to using Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum at night – it really lightens up dark spots over time.
