Why We’re Obsessed with Caudalie’s Premier Cru Line
It’s no secret that we are all feeling a little out of sorts lately; the world has been upside down for a while now and the stress is definitely taking a toll. We don’t think that we’re the only ones who’ve started to notice the appearance of some fine lines under our eyes and on our forehead, but we won’t tell if you won’t. What we will tell you however, is that while we can’t stop time or the wrinkles that come with it, we can surely help you to slow it down a little—and that’s all anybody really wants, right?
We know that as time passes, our cells produce less and less energy. The effect of this is most obvious with skin cells—as the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid declines. These cells need energy to maintain their regeneration functions and slow the ageing process. If you remember grade 10 biology, the mitochondria is the power house of the cell. All that needs to occur is to increase the functionality of the mitochondria and the skin cells will continue to be ‘powered up’.
That’s where Caudalie’s Premier Cru line comes in. After five years of research with Dr. David Sinclair from Harvard Medical School—nicknamed the “Guru of Longevity” by Time Magazine US—Caudalie has unveiled a new exclusive patent. Dr. Sinclair, in collaboration with Caudalie, has developed ground-breaking, anti-ageing innovations and discovered a solution to counteract the diminishing energy metabolism of cells over time. Their ground-breaking skincare ally, Vinergy, helps to restore skin cells’ energy production, allowing them to defend against signs of ageing.
When used along with the other products in the Premier Cru line, the serum (containing Vinergy) increases the creams’ anti-ageing efficacy sevenfold. Perfectly tolerated by sensitive skin, this slightly textured water directly inspired by Mathilde Thomas’s travels in Korea is both innovative and refreshing and contains 95% natural ingredients. It produces a delicate sensation and is subtly scented with rose petals infused in an oak barrel. With every application, skin cells work faster and harder to firm, tone, brighten, and smooth. Or in other words, return skin to its most youthful state. Premier Cru The Serum should be applied in the morning and evening to the face, neck and décolleté, immediately before applying Premier Cru The Cream or The Rich Cream.
Used together, the products are a potent set that improves visible signs of ageing while firming, smoothing, brightening, tackling dark spots and supporting skin’s natural collagen production (wow!). The name, Premier Cru comes from the French designation for wines of superior quality; just like those wines, these Caudalie products contain the best the vine has to offer. Uniting all of the Caudalie patents (Resveratrol, Viniferine, Polyphenols) with the most effective anti-ageing ingredients at their optimum concentrations makes these creams their most effective yet. In addition, their formulas have been renovated: they are now more effective, silicone-free, and even more natural.
The Premier Cru Lineup:
A natural and effective ‘time machine’ that with every application, returns skin to its most youthful state. Formulated with Caudalie’s three signature patents: resveratrol to lift and firm, Viniferine to brighten, and grape seed polyphenols to protect against environmental aggressors. Together, they further enhance the serum’s anti-aging benefits and boost the effectiveness of any subsequent cream. The formula is further enriched with niacinimide (vitamin B3) to protect skin from UV damage, age spots, and hyperpigmentation, as well as boost hydration and act as an anti-inflammatory.
Nicknamed “photoshop for the eyes,” this bestselling eye cream targets dark circles, puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles so eyes look perfectly filtered—soft, smooth, and bright—instantly. Enriched with hyaluronic acid and anti-ageing peptides this gentle cream is perfectly suited to the most fragile area of the face. It also acts as an immediate beautifier thanks to the presence of pearly and silvery micro-pigments that immediately illuminate the eye area.
This cream, designed for all skin types, is enriched with hyaluronic acid and anti-ageing peptides; it also acts on wrinkles and loss of firmness while rehydrating the skin and increasing complexion radiance. There’s nothing quite like it; the results—a 98 percent reduction in wrinkles and a 98 percent increased firmness—speak for themselves.
Designed for dry skin, this new creamy and velvety formula provides immediate comfort. It has been reformulated to offer an instant cocoon of softness and is enriched with hyaluronic acid. Because dry skin exacerbates all signs of aging, this luxurious, whipped formula has been created to instantly relieve that tight, parched feeling. Three super concentrated plant waxes—jojoba, mimosa, and sunflower—flood skin with hydration and create a protective barrier to prevent moisture loss. The formula is also infused with plumping peptides to fill out any loss of firmness.
Like applying silk to the skin, this luxurious, custom-made oil not only feels indulgent but also actively fights dehydration, fine lines, and dull skin. Formerly known as The Elixir, this dry oil is a multi-purpose product. It can be used as-is, after the serum and before the cream, when the skin is undernourished or attacked by a particularly dry and cold climate (like we have in Canada). It can also be mixed with a day or night cream to boost its nourishing effect or with a foundation for glowing radiance throughout the day.
