Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum – Not an INCI blog

I am NOT a skincare guru.

It is incredibly flattering when my blogging buddies call me that, and I am happy and grateful for everyone reading here and trusting my reviews, but I would never (ever!) claim that title for myself.

You see: This is NOT an INCI blog. I am not a chemist, nor do I have any experience working in the industry.

I am a doctor, and even though I have read a ton of scientific publications and dermatological textbooks, I would be lost if I had to come up with my own formula.

While I do think that I know more about skincare than the average person (even more than the average beauty blogger), I am still not an expert in this field, as blogs like Lab Muffin tend to teach me.

There is still so much to learn, and until I know everything, being called a skincare guru simply feels wrong.

So keep that in mind while reading my review on the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum.

Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrating Brightening Essence – Valkyries

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

I know I am (once again) completely off trend here, but I just don´t understand the need to make everything “Asian beauty”

Not that I think the Asian Beauty community isn´t noteworthy, or that I would deny incorporating a few bits into my routine as well.

It is just that I firmly believe that people adapt to their surroundings and way of living, and that this influences their needs.

Not the most basic ones, obviously, I mean there are toilets all around the world – but you get what I am saying here.

Just look at me:

I am 1,72 m, have a strong frame, blonde hair, curves and love dairy.

I am by all means more Valkyrie than Geisha.

And that is perfectly fine. It just gets awkward if I forcefully try to adapt to a Geisha way of life.

Strictly speaking skincare here. I would look as weird trying to blow the steerhorn as I would trying to play the shamisen.

So at first I was a little surprised that Caudalie, obviously a French skincare brand, would claim to be inspired by Asian beauty when they released the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence. But Mathilde Thomas did live in Asia for quite a bit, so I guess it is only natural that she got inspired there. So let´s see if this inspiration lead to Asian beauty fit for a Valkyrie.

New In Beauty April 2018: pixi, Caudalie and more

Back when I first started getting into makeup, I would often raid my mothers stash.

Apply her lipsticks, ruin her rouge, drench myself in her perfume – basically making a big mess. Now that I am grown up (and a blogger), things are usually the other way round.

She plays with my lipsticks, inherits my eye cream and enjoys the packages that arrive at my doorstep just as much as I do.

But when I opened her cabinet recently and saw that she had purchased quite a few Caudalie products, I figured it was time to go back to the old days and help myself to some new skincare!
