Yes, I know saying that might be considered blasphemy in the skin care world. But I don’t care. Hang me. I have found a product so much better than La Mer it’s ridiculous. (And it’s half the price.)
Last time I was at Sephora, I got a sample of a new product called Caudalie Vinexpert Firming Serum. It’s got Resveratrol in it (the anti-aging ingredient in red wine that Harvard, the NY Times and everyone else is going crazy over).
Any way, I put the Vinexpert Firming Serum on ½ my face (because I’m crazy) before going to bed that night.
You can’t. It was. I couldn’t believe. I can’t even form a sentence I’m so excited about the product. Give me a second.
OK. First I just want to say, “Super expensive, La Mer, I spit on your fancy Tiffany-type box.”
Where was I? Oh yeah, that morning I awoke to find the Caudalie side of my face not only looked amazing: years younger, clearer, less fine lines (by a mile), more radiant, but here’s the kicker. I looked in the mirror, and tried to remove an odd fleck from my face. Turns out it was a long, lost dimple I forgot I had. I’m not kidding. I guess my skin had lost elasticity and had gotten too couch-potato-like to form a dimple when I smiled. Yes, this stuff is that firming.
That was just the first application. By the 3rd application, I noticed a DRASTIC, I’m talking DRASTIC, reduction in the size of my pores on the Caudalie half of my T-zone.
And just so you know I’m not hallucinating these results. I immediately, ran back to Sephora to buy it and the sales woman told me it was sold out (and always is) and that it’s their best seller. She said I should put my name on a list to make sure I got one. (Apparently, this new product is the wii of the skin care world. And rightfully so.)
I've gotten some emails asking where people can find the products I talk about in my posts. Feel free to use Google “search the web” box, to the right, to find out where you can find it (and for how much).
