Speed Review: Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream

Caudalie, the French brand based around the antioxidant power of grapes, features in the personal bathrooms of many a beauty editor so it's not surprising that a new launch from them is always eagerly anticipated within the industry. Their latest launch is Premier Cru The Eye Cream.
Its predacessor, Premier Cru The Cream has sold almost a quarter of a million worldwide since launching and become the number one anti-aging cream in France. French women are as known for their enviably good skin as their chic wardrobes so this is no mean feat for any brand!

The packaging is everything I hope for in a product- sleek, luxurious and functional. At £48.50 for 15ml, it doesn't come cheap but I do believe that you should spend as much as you can afford to on skincare, eye creams in particular.
I don't necessarily feel ready to start using anti-aging products on my face as yet but I suffer from dehydrated skin which has meant the first signs of aging creeping in around my eyes. It is this delicate area which tends to be the first to show fine lines in most people so I feel that targeted products are a worthwhile investment. Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream aims to target wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dehydration, malnourishment, dark circles, puffiness, dark spots and loss of radiance.
The cream itself is a lot thicker than the products I'm accustomed to applying to my eyes yet it feels lightweight on the skin and I didn't suffer any puffiness, as I have with other cream formulas... a big bonus for me. One pump dispenses sufficient cream for both eyes as a little goes a long way. As it's a richer formula than the serums I've opted for previously, I found that it took a while to sink into the skin but the trade-off was that my skin felt especially nourished and my dehydration issues were improved. I don't yet suffer from the other issues mentioned but given that Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream has proven so successful in helping my eyecare concerns, I'd have no hesitation in recommending this product to either those looking to fight the first signs of aging to those with mature skin who need a little extra helping hand.
