I remember the days when my skin was pretty darn good. I mean, it was oily, but I easily zapped the oil. The up-side is that the oil gave me a dewy look long before oily was the trend in skin.
So apparently I was a skin trendsetter. And since it's common knowledge that oily skin ages well, so I can't complain now that my oil slick has dried up. (I was told that 50 must be the new 30)
Today, my skin doesn't look quite it's chronological age—54—only because I'm obsessive in my search for the ultimate elixer for radiant, firm, clear skin.
That search has let me to trying some extreme measures—an enzyme peel followed by a glycolic peel, (talk about feel the burn, that's why they are professional products). And then there are perfectly sensible skin care products that promote radiance and yield clear skin with gentle efficacy.
My most recent secret serum of skin care success is Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum.
What it is:
A highly concentrated oil-free serum that improves the appearance of dark spots, promotes even skintone, and boosts radiance.
What it is formulated to do:
Banish dark spots and achieve your most even, bright, and beautiful complexion. Perfect for all skin types, this satiny complex offers remarkable results, helping to correct dark spots, acne marks, and scars. Naturally powerful Viniferine, olive squalene, mint, caraway, and galbanum work to counter stretch marks, scars, and damage while bolstering collagen and elastin, for glowing results.
I'm all about double-duty products. Vinoperfect is double-duty and then some. My skin care concerns are limited to two—hyperpigmentation and firming. Vinoperfect addresses both of my concerns, and does it amazingly well.
Vinoperfect is pre-measured in a dropper applicator—packaging that I love as I don't have to worry that I'm using too much or not enough of the serum. I used the radiance serum from my hairline to down to my decolette twice daily. Vinoperfect has a light texture and immediately absorbs into the skin. The scent is light and refreshing.
Ordinarily I love to "feel the burn" of a product "working." I know that's wildly absurd thinking, but I started my anti-aging skin care regimens during the wild wild west days of Alpha Hydroxy Acids and chemical peels. Burn baby burn!
Ater 30 days my skin was clearly brighter and radiant. I have some dark spots that are from my OCD picking that were significantly lightened. Bonus blings for Caudalie Vinoperfect because my turkey neck was firmer.
When used in conjunction with other products (under, as I apply serums first) Vinoperfect stays put—no rolling or flaking. That's a major plus for those of us who wear layers of skin care and/or makeup.
Overall, Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is a skin care product that I found that lives up to its claims. It's what I'm loving now!
