Are you looking for Caudalie reviews? You’ve come to the right place! I’ve been a fan of the French skincare brand, Caudalie for a long time. I slowly added some of the best Caudalie products into my routine until that was all I used!
I love that Caudalie is a clean and planet-positive company that uses recycled materials and no harsh chemicals to create products that work!
After hearing me wax poetic for years about this brand, Jackie finally asked me for a list of what I consider the best Caudalie products. Um, all of them?
I figured while I was sharing my favorites with her, I would share them will all of you too! Especially because I talk about them all the time on Instagram.
Below you will find my daytime and nighttime skincare routine AND the changes I made to my list for Jackie’s skin. I have combination skin (hello oily T-zone!) and I’m looking to combat fine lines and wrinkles, while Jackie has dry skin (she wants ALL the hydration) and is worried about aging.

The Best Caudalie Products for Jackie’s Aging, Dry Skin
Jackie’s new routine is mostly the same as mine product-wise, but she uses a richer cream for her dry, aging skin. She swaps out my Resveterol picks with the Premier Cru products below. Since she’s newly trying these, I’ve linked them but have not included her full Caudalie review yet. Check back soon for updates!
Below you will find an individual Caudalie review for each product in my routine including why I like it and how I use it.
I use this gel cleanser morning and night. It has salicylic acid in it which helps reduce the oil my combination skin produces. I like that it lathers nicely but doesn’t leave my skin feeling stripped in any way.
I use this cleansing oil as the first step in my nighttime cleansing. You put the oil on your DRY face, rubbing it in where makeup is heaviest. The makeup literally melts off your face! It’s wild to see.
After the oil is rubbed all over, you wet your hands and rub again. The oil will turn into a milky consistency, which you then rub again to help cleanse. Rinse and you will have a clean face without drying out your skin.
You will be left with a slightly oily residue on your face – which is hydrating. Sometimes I stop there, but other time, particularly if I’m wearing heavy makeup for a night out, I like to use the gel cleanser too.
Toner is an optional step, but one I can’t live without. After washing my face, I put some of this in the palm of my hand, rub my hands together, and pat this all over my face and neck.
I can feel my skin tightening and it totally makes a difference in the visibility of my pores.
I use this dark spot-correcting serum during the day to help even out my skin. I have a few dark spots that can pop up if I’m exposed to the sun – but this serum helps eliminate them!
I’m constantly shocked at how quickly the dark spots on my forehead fade away when I’m using this product. In winter, I may use the Resveratrol-lift serum during the day, but in summer I won’t use anything but this.
While I don’t yet have deep wrinkles, I’m noticing that my face is developing fine lines. That’s why I started using this retinol alternative serum at night.
It uses Resveratrol, hyaluronic acid, and vegan collagen to visibly firm skin. Resveratrol with hyaluronic acid has been proven to be 40% more effective than retinol and is gentler on the skin!
I love this eye cream, but it’s pricy! It firms up my under eyes and visibly brightens them with this pearl texture that reflects light.
I instantly look like I got a great night’s sleep when I’m wearing this eye cream.
I wear this de-puffing eye cream at night to help reduce wrinkles and smooth out my eye contour.
By using this at night, I can reduce the overall cost of my skincare routine even though I will probably just wear the Premier cru eye cream in a year or two.
I use this daytime moisturizer to hydrate and firm my skin. It uses the same Hyaluronic Acid, Resveratrol, and vegan collagen alternative combo as the serum.
The moisturizer also has pearlizers in it that give your skin a daytime glow. Most days I don’t wear foundation because my skin doesn’t need it with this.
Once again the night cream version of the Resveratrol-life line uses the same combo of ingredients to firm up skin. But it also adds in peptides to firm up facial contours and olive squalane to repair the skin barrier.
I love that it’s not heavy or greasy. It’s fluffy and hydrating and I forget I’m wearing it the second I put it on.

The Best Caudalie Product for Acne-Prone Skin
During certain times of the month, I find myself turning to Caudalie’s Vinopure line. While I have combination skin, I’m not prone to breakouts unless it’s that time of the month or I’m particularly stressed. When I find that happening, I switch my daytime serum to the one below.
I love Caudalie Vinopure serum for battling breakouts and keeping my oil-prone T-zone under control. When I use this serum, I instantly get a cooling sensation that makes my skin feel cleared and ready to be moisturized – but not in a menthol weird way.
The redness around my nose crease and general nose oil are regulated within a few days of switching to this product. If I was in my 20s, this would have been my go-to serum every day and not just when I break out.
Caudalie Reviews: Mask Treatments and Beauty Elixer
As I mentioned, I have combination skin, which means that the pores in my T-zone can be bigger than I’d like them to be.
This clay mask helps to minimize the appearance of the pores and reduce the excess sebum that makes that area oily.
I use this Brightening Glycolic Enzyme Peel Mask to help brighten my skin and eliminate any dark spots.
It uses glycolic acid, natural AHAs, and Viniferine to refine the skin’s texture. I like to use this a lot in the fall or after vacation if I feel like my skin is uneven post-sun exposure.
Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir is a cult favorite for a reason. I use it all the time. If I’ve done my skincare routine, but not my make-up, I’ll spray it on my skin to refresh it before the makeup application.
If my makeup is done but looks dull a few hours into wear, I’ll spray it to refresh my skin. And during the winter, I just spray it on my face when I need more hydration.
