After reading Mostly Sunny's review of Caudalie Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Fluid, which you can read it here, I figured I should write a review of the one I've been using recently.
Caudalie Vinexpert Riche Radiance Day Cream SPF 10
This moisturizer is indeed rich but not as much as I was expecting. Recently we've had some frigid temperatures recently and I needed a little more protection than the one provided by Avène Anti-redness, the tube I usually go to in the morning. As with all Caudalie moisturizers, the tube is on the small side. The good thing is, you don't need a lot since it's quite concentrated and so a little goes a long way.
These days my skin is combination bordering on normal but on cold days it tends to be more on the dryish side, reason why I use a lightly more moisturizing product this time of year.
Caudalie Vinexpert Riches goes on smoothly and penetrates quickly. It has the light distinctive Caudalie fragrance but it fades quickly. One thing I do like about it is it doesn't make my skin as shiny as my usual Avène day cream. Although it is more moisturizing I don't think it would be enough for someone with really dry skin, even if you use more.
Do I recommend Caudalie Vinexpert Riche Radiance Day Cream SPF 10? Yes and no.
Yes if you're already a Caudalie fan. It is a good moisturizer and it does contain hyaluronic acid. No if you have very dry skin, the fragrance it that's an issue and because of the price. At $68.00 for 30 ml, I find it a little overpriced and I believe they could have made the SPF of 10 higher.
