Caudalie Vinopure Skin Perfecting Mattifying Fluid

Why can’t I for the life of me type Caudalie? I mean, I have written the name how often over the last three months, six times?

And that is six times in blog post titles only, I don’t even want to count how often the term Caudalie appeared in the corresponding text and social media shares.

And yet I keep writing Caudlaie, which to my eye somehow looks right (don’t even try to pronounce it though).

Why I have written it so often? It is not that I am obsessed with the brand, even though I admit they do have some gems. It is mostly because I first raided my mothers stash for her products and then discovered the Caudalie Vinopure trio aimed at congestion prone and oily skin.

Now that I have tested my way through all three products (read part one here and part two here), it is time to end the series with my thoughts on the Caudalie Vinopure Skin Perfecting Mattifying Fluid, bringing the count up to seven.

Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum – Two birds, one stone

Multitasking –  I have talked about that numerous times before. It just seems to be a recurrent thing in my life, albeit not always a successful one.

Just the other day, running on 1.5 hours of sleep, I tried to multitask feeding the cat and preparing my sons breakfast at the same time.

Well… let’s just put it that way: My son would eat about anything I serve him, the cat is much more picky.

Good thing I served the cat first and could quickly switch bowls before my son excitedly dug into his surprisingly meaty muesli…

So, once again, I vow to leave the multitasking to my skincare products, opting for versions that combine several beneficial ingredients at once. Like the Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum.

September Empties – Taking out the trash 18

I promise this is the last time you need to sit with me through sound issues.

See, in an attempt to be the most efficient I could be I bulk filmed a few videos. It was only when I got down to editing, quite some time later, that I realized the sound was completely messed up.

Take a look at my trash bin

 

In all four videos. And as per usual I was so late with editing, I simply couldn’t refilm them! Or, in case of this September  Empties video, I had thrown out all the stuff already.

Ah, now you know my dirty secret: I actually filmed my September Empties back in July! What can I say, I need content like that for when I am too busy holidaying in France (and probably shopping for skincare) to create something new.

What weighs heavier in your decisions, science or personal experience. Asking for a friend here, because of course I only go by science and would clearly change my opinion about a topic when presented with scientific facts.

Well, that friend (Let´s call her Anne, shall we?), Anne always said that shea butter would break her out. Even when she read that shea butter was recommended for acne. Even when she read that shea butter was one of the very few ingredients with a comdeogenic rating of zero. Even when presented with actual studies regarding that subject.

Anne was adamant. And then, one day, raiding her mother’s skincare stash, she grabbed a pot of Caudalie Resveratrol Face Lifting Soft Cream and used it. Without breakouts. Not knowing it contained shea butter pretty high up on the ingredient list.

She only noticed when she wrote this blog post…
