The Eye Cream Series - Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream

One of the earliest beauty habits I dutifully  preformed even as a young girl was eye cream application. 

The skin around the eye area is very delicate and void of any oil glands, which means it requires constant protection and targeted treatment formulas in order to resist damage and retain that youthful elasticity.
Proper hydration will plump up any fine lines making them less visible and the added layer acts as a barrier between the sensitive eye area and the damaging environmental factors. 
Seeing how the first signs of aging lurk around that delicate area, using an efficient eye cream formula is your first line of defense when it comes to anti-aging. 

When it comes to the field of anti-aging I am a big believer in prevention, protection and constant maintenance. There is no "magic potion" out there that will erase your fine lines and stop the aging process but using the right products with functioning formulas will certainly delay the inevitable. 
With that in mind I have been on a mission to find the best of the best when it comes to eye creams and that is how The Eye Cream Series was born. 

Caudalie is one of my go-to brands whose formula, ingredients, philosophy and commitment to quality, fit within my strict requirements when it comes to choosing a skincare product. The Premier Cru line is one of their most luxurious releases to date whose extravagant price tag ($98 for .5 fl.oz.) is backed up by superior ingredient concentrations and decades of grape antioxidant research. 

Caudalie Premier CruThis luxurious cream offers ultimate antiaging action for instantly transformed eyes. Perfectly hydrated, the skin is smoother and firmer. Dark circles and puffiness fade away and the eye area is brightened with renewed youth. 

Caudalie's three signature patents are blended at their highest concentration for unparalleled age-fighting power: Resveratrol-Oleyl for lifting and firming, Viniferine for brightening, and antioxidant-rich grape-seed Polyphenols. 

Key Ingredients;
-Grape Seed Polyphenols 

Caudalie Premier Cru formula has been created after years of diligent scientific research and dedicated test pools - resulting in what is said to be one of the most superior, concentrated eye treatments available. Since the basis of all Caudalie skincare is their famous Vinotherapie discovery, the fact that Premier Cru line is based on the same grape anti-oxidant system shouldn't be a surprise. After all these grape enzymes are thought to be the most powerful antioxidants in the plant kingdom so why mess with a good thing.

These grape seed polyphenols act as a protective agent, shielding the skin from environmental aggressors, free radicals and damaging UV rays. The reason that these polyphenols are unique is that along with their protective nature they are also able to reinforce skin's natural micro circulation and hydration level in the upper epidermal layer. 

The inclusion of the Resveratrol-Oleyl is worth mentioning especially when you consider that it is suppose to stimulate longevity proteins, which are said to increase the life of skin cells by a whooping 160%. The implications of that kind of success holds a lot of promise when it comes to anti-aging prevention and treatment. 

Caudalie Premier CruCaudalie Premier Cru also addresses the issue of "dark circles" by using the  Vinoferine molecule to regulate melanin production, prevent free radical damage and in turn lower the chances of developing even more discolorations. The Vinolevure inclusion offers deep moisture that is meant to lock hydration and restore natural glow and radiance. 

All of that sounds extremely impressive but lets face it all the formulas and fancy descriptions in the world mean nothing if the results are not attainable. 
Luckily Caudalie definitively delivers and the Premier Cru is one excellent eye cream. 

I love beauty products that produce both instant and long term benefits and this eye cream does exactly that. 
The texture is light and whipped but gives instant hydration and feels very creamy on the delicate eye area.The light reflecting particles instantly brighten the eye area and make me look a bit more rested each time I use it. 
After 3 months of mostly consistent use the difference is definitively visible - the under eye  area is significantly brighter, smoother, hydrated and plumped to a more youthful level

My final conclusion on the Caudalie Permier Cru Eye Cream is definitively positive. This eye cream means business and does exactly what it says it will do. The price tag is little extreme, however as usual I consider skin care to be an investment, especially if the product in question delivers. 
In this case Caudalie's promises all came through, so for me this really paid off in terms of skincare benefits. 

Caudalie Premier Cru and other Caudalie products can be purchased directly from their website or as always can be found at our trusty Sephora
