Merry Christmas! Santa might be finished for the year, but the gift-giving isn't over yet. We've got three more giveaways to come this week, starting with this Caudalie Premier Cru skincare trio! We've got one gift set available for one of our lovely Beautygeeks readers in Canada.
a little caudalie background
If your family owns a vineyard in Bordeaux, France, and you find out that grape seed extract is packed with all kinds of antioxidants, you launch a skincare range around it. That's what Mathilde Thomas and her husband Bertrand did when they were in their early 20s, back in 1995, two years after a professor at the Pharmacy University of Bordeaux told them they were "throwing away treasure."
Caudalie, named for "a wine term that refers to the unit of measurement for the time the flavours of a wine linger on the palate after tasting it," will celebrate its 25th Anniversary in 2020.
In 1997, Caudalie debuted Beauty Elixir, a plant-based hydrating mist that quickly became a cult favourite. On many a beauty-insider's French-pharmacy shopping list until it became available in North America, Beauty Elixir remains one of the brand's most loved items.
Several years and launches later, in 2009, Premier Cru debuted as a luxe line for anyone with normal-to-dry skin and concerned with visible signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and dullness. Dosed with powerful antioxidant resveratrol (extracted from grapevine bark), brightening Viniferene (molecules extracted from grapevine stalk sap), and grape-seed polyphenols (antioxidant-rich micronutrients), Premier Cru formulas also contain tetrapeptides and hyaluronic acid to promote firmness and hydration, as well as grape and sesame seed oils as emollients to help skin retain moisture. In 2018, Caudalie patented another molecule that "targets skin aging," called it Vinergy and put it in the Premier Cru serum.
