Brand Watch – Skincare – Caudalie – Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Cream – A CC Cream without the Gunk.

caAs you all know, I’m a sucker for anything that makes a lot of promises. I love products that have multiple benefits. In this day and age nobody needs primer, serum, moisturiser, concealer, powder and foundation. ‘Foundation’- to me the word seems like a word from yesteryear. Does anyone really actually ever wear it? Okay, I’m an easyish-to-please customer. I have mostly problem-free skin. That said, I do have the odd red patch, uneven tone. Everyone looks better with an even finish.

I get to try many, many products. The days of BB and CC creams were a revelation to me with every brand known to man promising no end of benefits. My issue with almost every one of these, without going into great detail was the colour-correction or skin tone perfection element. I could never find one that didn’t just seem like a moisturiser with some form of added pigment- a watered down foundation or hybrid foundation/moisturiser. I have always felt like my skin couldn’t breathe with foundation on. Never have like anything that could wipe off and colour my clothes. Always ‘too much’ for me.

Anyway, this leads me to a true beauty find. Those amazing people who have made wine good for you at Vinoperfect, a cult French brand based on the benefit of the grape and the vine using zero parabens, phenoxenthanol or mineral oils have produced a moisturiser that gives you flawless skin without the foundation-like component. You do not feel like you are wearing make-up at all. The moisturiser is rich enough for my normal to dry skin and it melts into the skin leaving a brighter, more even complexion. It’s just like a brilliant BB or CC cream but it feels like a really good moisturiser. It works on dark spots too. Let’s put it this way, I like it so much, I’m careful when I squeeze the tube because I don’t want to waste it! Try it for yourself, you will notice the difference instantly and for those who don’t like to wear any form of make-up, this is the one for you.
