Caudalie's Vinoperfect Range began back in 2005 with the release of their Vinoperfect Radiance Serum* - a highly designed skincare product that offered a real solution to dark spots. Since 2008, it's been the number one anti-dark spot solution found in French pharmacies, and now in 2015 Caudalie have extended their Vinoperfect range. Caudalie's Cinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturiser with Broad Spectrum SPF 20* is the newest addition to the Vinoperfect skincare range, offering similar skincare benefits to the Vinoperfect Radiance Serum along with the coverage of a lightweight base and added UV protection. I was lucky enough to be invited along to an event that Caudalie held at the Sanderson Hotel in London where they talked me through the ingredients and effects of using these two lovely products. Today, I'll be giving you the low-down on what both of these products have to offer.

Caudalie's Vinoperfect Radiance Serum contains a special ingredient called Viniferine which is typically found in grapevine sap. Caudalie's expert skincare labs have been able to produce a stable form of Viniferine which they're able to use in skincare products. This is an important development because Viniferine is a powerful but gentle anti-dark spot ingredient. Not only does Viniferine promote mico-circulation in the blood capillaries to boost radiance and clarity but it also demonstrates an antioxidant activity that protects the skin from UV radiation - and Caudalie's Vinoperfect Radiance Serum contains 1000 ppm of Viniferine (a high concentration).
Caudalie's Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is oil-free and non-comedogenic, so it won't block your pores, with a light milky consistency that absorbs very quickly into your skin. The serum is supposed to work over time, reducing the appearance of existing dark spots (which can be caused by pregnancy, ageing or acne scars), helping to give you a more even and radiant complexion. Unlike many radiance serums, Caudalie's is not photosensitizing which means that it can be used in both the morning and evening. Additionally, it's worth noting that although Caudalie's Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is supposed to help enhance the appearance of your complexion it doesn't brighten your complexion by lightening your skin. Instead it actually helps to product a even production of melanin, allowing your skin to gain an even and high-quality tan that's more luminous and longer-lasting. It's a skincare product that's designed to get your skin looking it's best - and I'm really looking forward to trying it out for myself.
Caudalie's new Radiance Tinted Moisturiser is an all-in-one beauty treatment and complexion enhancer that helps to correct and cover dark spots thanks to a formula that functions as both skincare and make-up. Not only does it contain 500 ppm of Viniferine (the same complexion-evening ingredient as the Radiance Serum) but it also contains hylaronic acid for hydration and SPF 20 to protect your skin from sun damage. The Radiance Tinted Moisturiser enjoys a light, oil-free and non-comedegenic formula that offers sheer and luminous coverage to help give you the appearance of a more even complexion. Over time the skincare ingredients of the product help to actively fade dark marks, so that your skin is more even and luminous even without any coverage.
I love the idea of Caudalie's Radiance Tinted Moisturiser, however, it's worth noting that it offers very light, sheer coverage that might not cover all skin imperfections. I'm looking forward to trying this out for myself and seeing it helps improve the appearance of my skin.
