SonyaSimoesThis post answered so many questions for me. I’ve been holding off on using this serum because I used the moisturizer and it did not workout very well. But now I’m willing to try it

Caudalie gifted me all three of these products which are actually being sold in a set right now at Sephora if you’d like to check them out!! First of all, I have honestly enjoyed using each of there products, which is why they’re all starred highly! CAUDALIE - Instant Foaming Cleanser This cleanser is great! The foaming texture is really nice and feels awesome on the skin! It really seems to do a nice job at removing the remaining makeup from my face! It smells amazing too! CAUDALIE - Vinosource SOS Intense Moisturizing Cream The moisturizing cream is extremely hydrating! I have naturally dry skin so this has been great at keeping my skin soft and supple! A little of this goes a long way! CAUDALIE - Vinosource SOS Deep Hydration Serum This is an awesome hydrating serum! I use this morning and night and only need one pump each time, so this would last you forever!
Go-to hydrating serum since forever!
I don't remember a time when I didn't use the CAUDALIE - Vinosource SOS Deep Hydration Serum . It is by far my favorite hydrating serum of all times. The formula is thin enough to be absorbed completely by the skin but thick enough to leave you feeling calm and hydrated. Great for those days when you need some deeper hydration or extra TLC. I also think this serum has a very mild brightening effect on my skin, which I don't mind at all. I absolutely love this stuff. I have gone through numerous bottles of it, and I always have a backup in my stash just in case it runs out. For a stronger brightening effect, I love to pair the serum with the CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Instant Brightening Moisturizer . Lighter than other Caudalie moisturizers I've used but equally great. I have really dry skin, and I wouldn't use this during the colder months but it's perfect during the summer.
Hydration game changer!
PRODUCT: belif - Hungarian Water Essence This is a lightweight hydration essence that hydrates skin from deep within. It has a watery texture that instantly glides on skin. The formula contains herbs like rosemary and lavender that have powerful antioxidant agents. MY THOUGHTS: I started using this essence a few weeks ago and I’m already considering it to be a staple in my skincare routine. I have dry skin so I’m always on the lookout for hydrating products. This water essence is the most lightweight product I’ve ever used. It feels like water as soon as it comes in contact with your skin and I really feel the deep hydration that it provides. Ever since I started using it my skin feels SO much more hydrated and I’ve had no issues with breakouts or irritation even though I have extremely sensitive skin. This is the perfect product to use on your face/neck after cleansing and toning. SIDE NOTE: ✨I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. ✨This product is dermatologist tested and is free of mineral oil, sulfates, petrolatum, synthetic preservatives, dyes, fragrances, and animal origin ingredients. (Clean at Sephora)🌱

My favorite night serum
I’ve tried 3 different serums for caudalie I actually enjoyed all of them but this was by far my favorite. I have dry and sensitive skin and I didn’t have any negative reactions to this one . It leaves me skin feeling so soft and gives me such a beautiful glow in the mornings . This retails for $79 but they currently have this kit that includes the full serum and essence and moisturizer in mini sizes so I picked this up instead .

You Don’t Think You Need Essence Until You Come Across This!
If you’re a skincare addict like me, you know as well as I do that glycolic acid is such a power ingredient when it comes to minimizing fine lines, evening out the skin tone, treating huge pores, and sloughing off dead skin cells. So, when I came across this essence, I knew I had to try it out. CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence I wasn’t a fan of essences, after my first ever purchase a few years ago (that was the iconic SK-II Pitera Essence). Unfortunately, that expensive essence didn’t really do anything on my skin. My faith for essences has been revived when I saw this virtually sitting on Sephora while I was browsing. Since I loved the brand’s hydration serum from its Vinosource range, I thought this essence will do wonders on my skin the way its serum has done. Turns out, I was right! Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence attributes its powerhouse brightening and smoothing features to glycolic acid, white peony, and Caudalie’s signature organic grape water. Glycolic essence is an exfoliant; it removes dead skin cells and gently sloughs off dry skin that’s lurking on top of our faces. It’s an effective ingredient for revealing a newer, fresher layer of skin, rendering us a more youthful look. It also assists in collagen production, which therefore helps in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles and maintaining skin’s youthful glow and elasticity. White peony unclogs and tightens huge pores, making our skin look younger and tighter. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory agent, which aids in treating skin inflammation and treats redness, rashes, and skin scarring. It’s Mother Earth’s natural brightening ingredient, eventually leading to fading of scars. The brand’s signature organic grape is a wonderful moisture-sealing and calming agent. This essence felt hydrating on my skin, and I felt like it allows the rest of my skincare product to be absorbed by my skin easier, making them work twice as hard to give me the best skin ever. The combination of glycolic acid, white peony, and organic grape water is the perfect hybrid of ‘chemical’ exfoliation and sealing of hydration after, rendering us youthful-looking, glowing, and evened out skin tone. I can’t recommend this enough! Another good news is that it’s vegan and is made from 100% natural ingredients! Winner!

Budget Brand vs High-End: $10 vs $54
Bakuchiol is a new, trending ingredient that has growing research behind it. Sourced from the babchi plant, it’s an antioxidant that is thought to offer benefits similar to retinol: smooth texture, even tone, diminish fine lines. The research isn’t as long-lived and consistent as that supporting retinol use, but it does seem promising. Its benefits as a soothing antioxidant have been established, which alone makes it worth trying out in your routine! But as for which product I’d recommend, as someone with super sensitive combination skin... 🌱 HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum Cost: $54 USD/30mL Texture: Jelly Serum; not thick enough to be a gel, more viscous than most liquids; soaks in quickly. Finish: Dewy; no shine, no stickiness, but more visibly hydrated. Skin Types: All! Results: Positive; but underwhelming. Overall: I had very low expectations for this serum- this one of only two Herbivore products I would ever repeatedly put on my face after disliking almost their entire line. But. This is actually pretty nice. The texture is unique, a gelatinous sort of almost-fluid that stretches and jiggles but soaks in quickly. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous, almost pretty enough to make it worth $54. But, it’s not. It is hydrating and does plump any fine lines that are worsened by dryness, but otherwise I only saw minor improvement in redness and no signs of any resurfacing or long-term lessening of fine lines. No acne aggravation or improvement. I wouldn’t purchase a full-size, but do enjoy the hydrating aspect enough to finish the other mini bottles I own. 🔬 THE inkey LIST - Bakuchiol Cost: $9.99 USD/30 mL Texture: Thin Lotion; silky and light; soaks in quickly. Finish: Satin; no shine, no stickiness. Skin Types: All; though it’s only moisturizing enough to be a stand-alone moisturizer for pretty oily skin. Results: Positive; as expected. Overall: Due to my experience with the Herbivore Bakuchiol, I had low expectations again- but this lotion surprised me! It doesn’t make my skin “dewy and bouncy” as the Herbivore did, but it did lightly moisturize and do something the purple serum did not: soothe. I used this alone as well as alongside retinol (like the Herbivore) and saw significant reduction in irritation from retinol use when using, enough so that I plan to use this every night that I’m applying Tretinoin or in the day when I apply benzoyl peroxide. It diminishes redness, flaking, and makes my skin not “itch” from the benzoyl peroxide. I didn’t see acne reduction or lessening of fine lines, but the soothing aspect alone is enough to get me to repurchase. Definitely worth it if you often experience skin inflammation and/or redness, retinoid-induced or otherwise!

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
