I personally regard Caudalie as one of few natural skincare brands that brings ideal textures to their products without adding overly harsh ingredients for skin. This is perhaps one of the main reasons why I don't mind going back and forth from luxury skincare brands to Caudalie, and vice versa.
Scent & Consistency
Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream has a delicate creamy consistency that goes onto skin soft and smooth.
I would personally consider their texture as an ideal model when one describes a skincare product as 'creamy' in terms of the consistency. There's no overly rich or heavy feel to the cream, and it leaves skin supple and velvety.
Upon application, you will also notice a subtle spicy cinnamon-like therapeutic scent which helps de-stressing and calming senses. The scent doesn't linger, so it hasn't been an issue with my skin.
Both luxurious and effective, Premier Cru The Cream delivers the ultimate anti-aging action for the skin, revealing a beautifully youthful complexion. The creamy texture melts into the skin to leave it feeling velvety soft, smoothed and hydrated. The powerful formula regenerates the skin, restores its density and smoothes wrinkles to reveal a firmer, more radiant complexion and redefined facial contours.
Its lightweight texture leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth.
Its signature fragrance combines subtle notes of rose petals infused in an oak barrel.

If you are someone who enjoys a holistic skincare ritual, Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream can be a great addition as it just feels quite indulgent and therapeutic overall, considering its scent and texture. In terms of its efficacy, it seems to help balancing skin quite well, and I've even been using it during my cycle to keep hormonal spots at bay. It's true that my skin looks less puffy and dull, which is great as it's something that I often struggle with during my monthly.
Having said that, I haven't noticed much mid-zone (around the cheek area) lifting action although it seemed to work pretty well around my jawline. I didn't see much improvement around smile lines, but my skin feels more resilient and well-balanced. If you are considering getting the cream for skin firming/ lifting purposes, I strongly suggest you to pair it with their Premier Cru The Serum as it works well in synergy.
Unlike most of the anti-aging face creams on the market, Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream doesn't interfere with make-up throughout the day, so you won't need to worry about your make-up breaking down. I didn't notice any excessive sebum problems, which is an added bonus. Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream is a good companion along your skincare journey if you are someone believing in naturally beautiful aging. It won't do much dramatic enhancement to your skin, but it's a great one to maintain the youth of skin and age in a more graceful manner.
