Goodbye acne, hello clear skin!
When we were teens, most of us had at least some acne almost 8 in 10 teens have acne and pimples. At least some form of acne is so common in teens that it’s considered a normal part of puberty. BUT! Skin issues don’t only affect teenagers; adults often suffer too. Adult acne may be a continuation of skin breakouts experienced during adolescence or may occur for the first time as an adult. Adult-onset acne and is more common in women than men, likely related to fluctuating hormones with breakouts occurring around menstrual periods and during pregnancy, perimenopause and/or menopause. Factors contributing to adult acne are family history; stress, pore-clogging beauty products, certain medications or specific underlying medical conditions.
Although acne is a skin disease, it is the primary reason for prominent emotional and psychological issues for women and men. Luckily, acne is not incurable—and although clear skin can feel like a distant dream for so many, Caudalie has us shouting from the rooftops (and not hiding our faces while we’re shouting) about their new skincare line. When you know the struggle of visible pores, inflamed blemishes and an oily t-zone, you can feel lost. When it comes to acne, finding products that help calm and soothe breakouts rather than aggravate your skin can be difficult—especially with SO many options available.
Caudalie Vinopure line is the option we are excited to have finally found. The products, formulated using natural ingredients, visibly improve the quality of acne-prone skin, without being harsh or damaging. While salicylic acid is often in the press for being the ‘best’ spot-solving ingredient, it’s not for everyone and should be used with caution. Caudalie’s Vinoperfect line features 100% natural salicylic acid extracted from winterleaf, which can be used every day, twice a day—without issues—and it unblocks pores and refines skin texture. The products also contain ingredients such as niacinamide to reduce dilated pores, polyphenols to limit the oxidation of sebum that’s responsible for blackheads and six antibacterial essential oils: lavender, lemongrass, peppermint, rosemary, lemon balm and geranium. Their products are also dermatologically tested and formulated without synthetic fragrance and PEGS, and are non-photosensitising.
Which skin types will benefit from Vinopure?
The skin types that will most benefit from Caudalie’s Vinopure line are those with adult acne. Adult acne tends to be blemishes caused by hormones and is usually occasional and/or reactional. This line of products is great for oily skin and combinations skin with oily t-zones.

There are four skincare steps to follow morning and night in the Vinopure routine. Each product ranges from a 96% to 98% natural formula, which is hugely beneficial for aggravated skin that’s usually associated with acne and blemishes.
