I have used up this face cream a while ago, so it’s time I write a review.
Cream comes in a 40ml long plastic tube, and inside a paper box there are some instructions on how to apply cream.
The texture is normal, not dense, easy to spread and it absorbs in a few seconds without leaving any greasy residue or film on the face. It leaves the skin smooth and soft.
The scent is subtle, herbal.
This is the copy/paste from Caudalie’s website:
“Rich in moisturizing and anti-oxidant active ingredients, this velvety cream instantly melts into skin to moisturize and preserve the skin youthfulness for a simply radiant effect.

And it really is ideal for young, undemanding skin, that needs light hydration.
Although the packaging says it is for all skin types, I would not agree. This cream is very light and I believe it would be good for normal and combination, even for oily skin, but I don’t think it is moisturizing enough for dry skin.
I used it in the summer because it didn’t make my T-zone even more greasy, it did not cause any reaction on my skin, and thanks to silicones, a foundation looks nice on top of this cream.
It does not contain parabens or mineral oils.
