Serums are treatments not moisturizers. The use of either depends on your age & skin condition. In your 20s a good moisturizer w/SPF should do it. This product is targeted to 40+ in age ~ aged/dry skin loves the combo of this product and Vinexpert Radiance day cream. Caudalie is one of the best ~ my introduction was on my 40th birthday, that was 17 years ago. I will never use another line, I found the best!

I've used it both ways, but I think it's better to follow with a light moisturizer -- esp. in the winter and if you have aging skin, which tends to get dry. Their day moisturizer is great -- a bit of shimmer to it --

Best results are when used with a moisturizer. A serum works deep into the skin cells.

You use this product under your moisturizer. It can work, I've done it. But not the same as using both in combo.

In this hot weather I would use a fluid,something lighter than a cream on top
of the Vinexpert Serum during day.Try Caudalie Vitaminee Pulpe Emulsion
Anti-Wrinkle Fluid-beautiful results day or night and lovely slight grape scent.
In winter-if like me you need more hydratiion to combat the weather-try one
of Caudalie's Radiance creme or fluid,gives a slight sparkle too.

Whenever you use any type of serum, always put that on first, then your moisturizer. And, if you're using a moisturizer that does not contain sunscreen, always put the sunscreen on next. If you're using a powder or foundation, put that on over the sunscreen. It's called layering products for optimal effectiveness. As a licensed esthetician, I am always glad to answer questions. Hope this helps.

This is one step in the skincare regimen. You won't get as good results using something that combines, it won't be as strong, and sometimes certain ingredients don't play well together so they need to be applied separately. It doesn't take that long to apply, and you can use it along with moisturizer nighttime only if you just want to use moisturizer in the morning.

it can be used alone but if its not moisturizing enough for you you can still apply a cream on top.

I use this serum with the Bliss Triple Oxygen cream. Your complexion looks great after one use. Your skin will have that "dewy" look. I don't have any wrinkles yet so I can't say that it diminishes your wrinkles. I use this as a prevantative.

I generally use it under my moisturizer--both in the morning & the evening. It helps immensely to hydrate my skin (I live in a very dry climate). In the summer, on warmer days, I find the serum alone is an effective light moisturizer.

I just use on top of the Caudalie toner, but no other moisturizer. Has done wonders for my face.
