Skin Care


My first try on Caudalie skincare product.

I’ve never stuck to a skincare brand/product. I’ll tend to look for a new brand after finish using my existing skin care product or stop using if it doesn’t suit my skin. First, I will get to know my own skin type, then look for a trustworthy brand with the product series that suit my skin. Besides, I will read through the reviews from users or get recommendations from friends and family.

My skin type

Normal to Dry. If I don’t apply any moisturizing skin cares while traveling during spring/winter season, my skin starts peeling off. I usually look for moisturizing series to keep my skin hydrated.


Caudalie skin cares are Natural, Paraben free and they are made in France. Products are mainly made of vine extracts that come from French Vineyards.  

Why paraben free?

Parabens are synthetic preservatives used in cosmetics and allow skin care products to survive for months or even years in your cabinet. They enter your body through your skin when you use these products. Parabens can mimic hormones in the body, disrupt functions of the endocrine system or increase the risk associated with exposure to estrogenic chemicals. However, many researchers found that it does not pose a significant health risk especially in the small amounts used in personal-care products. Anyway, it’s better to be safe than sorry!

My First-Try on Caudalie Skin Care

Instant Foaming Cleanser

This 99% natural soap-free liquid cleanser turns into a generous, airy foam for gentle, effective cleansing. From the first use, the skin is cleansed, radiant and refreshed. A blend of grape extracts, sage and chamomile remove make-up and impurities, while soothing skin. 

As I know, Foaming Cleansers are usually suitable for oily skin. It’s true enough that my skin has that stinging feeling after using, it feels dry, I should probably stick back to cleansing milk. Other than that, I’m attracted to the delicate scentsmells like cucumber, it’s refreshing!

Foaming cleansers are the types of cleansers that last the longest. All you need is a small amount of cleanser to work up a nice lather to clean your whole face.

Airy foam

Moisturizing Toner

Enriched with moisturizing Vinolevure®, this lotion completes cleansing and revitalizes the skin. Fresh, clean and soft, 
the skin is ready to fully benefit from its skincare regimen. After cleansing, I apply this moisturizing toner with a cotton pad to face and eyes. It leaves my skin perfectly toned. However, my skin feels dry and stinging.

For anyone who has dry combination skin, perhaps getting the sample size before getting the full-size products as every individual skin type is different. You can find them in S E P H O R A store/online store.
