Question
Is this a mosturizer? Or a serum?
Can this be used as a moisturizer alone? Or is this more considered to be a serum and better to use a moisturizer in addition? Thank you!

It is a serum and a cream but I use dior super serum underneath for even better results. I love it because it is an all in one and in a hurry it is all I use for eyes too. That is what a Sephora associate told me.So when you think about it it is not so expensive because you don't have to buy a separate serum and eye cream.

I used this in place of the Radiance Serum and Vendages moisturizing cream. It was - okay. I definitely didn't think it worked as well nor was it worth the expensive price. I love Caudalie products but this one just doesn't do it for me, especially at the cost. I've gone back to serum + moisturizer again.

This is a moisturizer but brings fast results and provides similar results as the best serums out there. Thus this can be used alone. I still use my favorite serums under this, but you'll see results either way.

I would not use the cru la creme for eyes. I started to use it underneath mine for dark circles, and my eyes started to burn when it was absorbed. Face serums and moisturizers aren't typically opthomologist tested and approved because your skin is a different body part from your eyes. I recently bought the premier cru eye cream and have not experienced any negative experiences.

The little pamphlet that comes with the moisturizer says to "finish by making small circles at the corners of the eyes and on the forehead." I'm sure it is just fine to use without it, but I still use an eye cream.

I only got a small sample of this, but from what i saw it definitely can be used around the eyes. I did, it didnt burn or anything, but you may have more sensitive skin than me. I noticed improvement everywhere, including my eyes. I say try it...you really only need a small amount for your whole face.

answer 6
Personally, I wouldn't. I don't believe it is formulated for that sort of use. And considering it is a lightweight creme, I find it is too rich for the immediate eye area. If I apply it just little too high on my cheek near the eye, I'll get one of those tiny superficial pimples.

I use Caudalíe's Vinexpert lip & eye serum, and it works well for me, but you do need to use it consistently for results (and you can use it on your eyelids, too)!

I have sensitive skin and T-zone redness if I'm not careful what products I use. I have been using this cream for a few months and have had no adverse reactions. You should try it knowing you can return it if it doesn't work for you. It's one of the best creams I have ever found.

I have perioral dermatitis (similar to rosacea) and this does not irritate my skin. It acctually makes it smoother with no break out or redness. I also use the moisture face and eye mask and it is gentle enough to leave on overnight or even during the day for extra moisture. My skin looks the best ever in years. Give it try and good luck!!

It's definitely a moisurizer. Nice and creamy but not too thick. I actually put a serum on first and then barely have to use any of this because it glides on so easily and smoothly. There is more in the bottle than you realize. Mine acted like it was empty so I took it apart and there was actually about half left! The dispensing mechanism got clogged against the side of the bag and I'm glad I checked. Don't want to waste a drop of this stuff!

I don't know if it's safe for pregnancy, but you should really go to a medical professional instead of cosmetic store with those questions. Does it make you break out? Different products make different people break out. There is never any guarantee.

Question
What products should I use this with?
I received a sample of this and just loved the product. Would now like it to be part of a complete Caudalie regimen. I am in my 40's so anti-aging is a priority and live at 7,000 feet altitude so the air is extremely dry. I am looking at using the foaming cleanser and eye/lip serum but am not sure if I need to add any other products to this.

I would also add the Beauty Elixer. One of my very favorite products, and is very refreshing when skin is dry. If you spray on skin before you put on cream, it will make cream even easier to spread. It is also great for setting makeup, i.e., after all is done lightly mist face. The eye and lip cream are great...I think they even make one for dry skin. Honestly, you can't go wrong with Caudalie!

The foaming cleanser is delightful, especially when mixed with Caudalie's gentle buffing cream as a daily cleansing treatment.
I also love the Vinoperfect radiance mask, it uses several fruit acids, lactic acid and other goodies to gently exfoliate the skin, which is an important weekly step in any skin care routine.

The beauty of this product is that it's all-inclusive...it's got all the good stuff already in there. And they've omitted the bad stuff (paraben & nasty chemicals I can't pronounce) If I had to choose a complementary product, I'd recommend a nice glass of Merlot (keeping with that healthy grape theme, of course). Enjoy the science of the grape!

I am chalked FULL of acne scars... Dreadfully, I used to be a picker, and was def punished for it. This will reduce them more than anything I have ever tried, but keep in mind, just like cellulite creams, there is NO product that will just get rid of them all forever. You can get artefill which is an injectable, that IS permanent, but $1000.00- if you dont want to be poked with needles, than this cream is for you. I use estee lauder double wear maximum cover, and combined with la creme CRU, you can't even see my scars.

I have been using the Vinoperfect Radiance Serum for almost a month now and definitely notice a reduction in dark spots and imperfections. The Vinoperfect is touted as being good for dark spots and seems to be more targeted towards unevenness than anti-aging. Here is what it says about the Radiance Serum:
Based on in vitro testing, conducted by the Montpellier Faculty of Pharmacy, of the inhibiting action of Viniferine on tyrosinase:
- 62 times more effective than vitamin C
- 4 times more effective than kojic acid
- 13 times more effective than arbutin in boosting skin radiance and fighting dark spots

In a test carried out on 20 volunteers after use of Vinoperfect Regimen, under dermatological control:
- Volunteers saw disappearance of one or more dark spots after 56 days

Whereas if you look at the Premier cream, it says "38% reduction of dark spots" and it seems to be more of an anti-aging cream, so I would go with the Serum. It's half the price, as well.
