Caudalie Vinoperfect Facial Radiance Dark Spot Correcting Serum Review

Not Sponsored: Sephora had a lot of deluxe sample products that I was interested in, so I used some of my points to purchase them. I'll be reviewing the last of these products for you this week. So far, I've reviewed Biossance's Squalane + Omega Repair Cream, Fresh Beauty's Tea Elixir Skin Resilience Activating Serum and Drunk Elephant's Protini Powerpeptide Resurf Serum & Protini Polypeptide Cream. Today, I would like to review Caudalie's Vinoperfect Facial Radiance Dark Spot Correcting Serum (Anthropologie, Saks Fifth Avenue, Harvey Nichols, Macys, SpaceNK, Selfridges, Revolve, Nordstrom) for you. 

I've never tried anything from the skincare brand Caudalie before, so I went to their website to read about the brand. It's a French skincare company, that is independent and family owned. Its founders are a husband and wife duo, Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas. What I often noticed about Caudalie's packaging were the grapes on them. Grapes are synonymous with Caudalie's history. Grape seeds contain the most powerful antioxidants (polyphenols - see video below) in the world. These seeds are extracted from grapes and used in many of Caudalie's skincare products. You may also see the word Vino (vine-based ingredients) on their packaging. That is because Caudalie has also found useful beauty treatment from grape vines (sap) and grape water. They've truly found uses from all aspects of grapes.

I wanted to explain Caudalie's use of grapes in their skincare (above) before beginning my review of their Vinoperfect Facial Radiance Dark Spot Correcting Serum. Caudalie uses Viniferine (a precious sap that runs through vine stalks) to make this product. I've included a very interesting video for you below; but to sum it up ... women who worked in the vineyards often used sap from grapevines to help reverse sun damage (on their hands, face etc. - this sap has brightening power, it lightens dark spots, it also helps with uneven skin tone). 
As you age, you can get dark spots from many sources (sun, acne scars, age etc). I personally have a combination of them.  What caught my eye about this serum, was the fact that it is 62% more effective than Vitamin E alone. Our grandmother's solution to dark spots was "put some vitamin E on it". Well, now there are more options. The serum contains upcycled vine sap (corrects & prevents dark spots) and olive squalane (hydrates & nourishes skin). This serum is effective on dark spots caused by SUN, ACNE, PREGNANCY, AGE and MELASMA. It's perfect for sensitive skin. This serum has a nature/woodsy scent to it (in my opinion). Caudalie describes the scent as citron blossom, orange leaves, watermelon and crushed mint. It has a milky, cloudy white liquid consistency. It absorbs quickly into the skin. I only had a deluxe sample size of this serum, but while using it I noticed fading of dark areas of my skin, especially acne scars. It's really good and effective. I'm just not a huge fan of the scent. But sometimes you have to deal with negative things to achieve positive things. I may try another deluxe sample of this serum to see if its worth incorporating into my skincare regimen. The reason why I say that is because, I love Sunday Riley's Good Genes (Anthropologie, ASOS, Bloomingdales, Free People, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Macys, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Olivela, Revolve, Saks Fifth Avenue, Selfridges, SpaceNK). It's an excellent exfoliant, that has helped me with dark spots. I'll give you an update on this post, but I definitely experienced fading of my acne scars. This serum also worked well with my sensitive skin. I experienced no adverse effects. As far as hydration, I would say I didn't find this serum very hydrating. But it is really good at fading.
