Dealing with acne-prone skin can be tricky – you should always be careful about the products you use so you don’t trigger another rash. But when I was introduced to the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Correcting Serum, the promise of faded dark spots and fresher, clearer skin was more than enough reason I could risk it all (and by risking it all). , I hear more eruptions, of course).
Caudalie is one of the most trusted and respected brands in the skin care community, and this serum has been a fan favorite for a long time. So while I put a lot of faith in a new product, I felt like the odds were in my favor with this one. Although the brand recently received a slight overhaul in 2021, it continues to be a beauty staple among many. This particular serum promises to give you a dewy glow, and even your skin tone (thanks to its formula, which includes a combination of olive squalane and a special blend of grape sap ingredients).

When I first tried the serum, I was pleasantly surprised by its milky white consistency. It’s a bit thicker than other serums, but it’s still able to penetrate deep into your pores to create a powerful dose of hydration. It applies gently and leaves my skin refreshed rather than oily.
Plus (and most importantly) it didn’t cause my acne-prone skin to react or break out, which is a major skincare win for me. The added moisture actually helped minimize my breakouts. It is important for me to note that I use it in combination with other anti-acne skin care products (mainly salicylic acid treatments from Paula’s Choice). So, I can’t say that this serum prevented or treated blemishes on its own, but it certainly didn’t cause them to form. A win is a win, however.
Not to mention that the bottle lasts a long time. In fact, you only need a few drops to adequately hydrate your face, which is a huge plus considering the hefty price tag. Overall, I would say that during the four months that I wore this serum (i.e. before I ran out of my own bottle) my skin definitely saw an improvement in luminosity. Keep in mind that this was not an overnight miracle. However, within a week, my dry skin seemed more rejuvenated and healthier (and that’s without the coffee).
At $ 79, it is a bit of an investment, but if you’re looking for a luxurious, hydrating serum that won’t do more harm than good, and you’re willing to try a different approach to help combat dullness (and keep your skin just as clear) as possible while you’re at it), then it’s totally worth it.
