This Is the Best-Selling Serum in French Pharmacies

Finding a beauty product you love is a double-edged sword: On the one hand, it’s a relief to find something that works for you, but on the other, you realize your obsession will cost you a pretty penny over the years. Several years ago, I got hooked on Caudalie’s Vinoperfect Radiance Serum ($80) and have since purchased at least 15 bottles. No, I don’t want to do the math and find out how much that’s cost me! I’m clearly not the only one smitten: In the brand’s recent Instagram post, Caudalie proclaims that it’s the best-selling serum at French pharmacies and that one bottle sells every 30 seconds around the world. Impressive. 

So why do I love the serum? Let me count thy ways. First, the texture: it has a lightweight, milky feel that glides on very easily. It really wakes up my skin instantly, especially when my face looks as tired as I feel. It makes my face look glowy, fresh, and more even. Over time, it also helps brighten my post-acne marks, which is what I originally sought out the product for. Be patient with results, though, as the marks won’t fade right away. The serum’s ingredient that helps with dark spots is called viniferine, which is derived from grapes. Last but not least, it basically doubles as a moisturizer for my oily/combination skin. If you have dryer skin, you’ll probably want to add a heavier moisturizer, but I have felt that it’s great on its own for me.

Other ingredients include soothing chamomile and moisturizing grape water. 

You might remember that I waxed poetic about this salicylic acid serum last summer. It has done wonders in controlling my acne and is very gentle on my sensitive skin—and I’ve tried a lot of acne products. It also feels light and refreshing, which is especially great for warm weather. Don’t forget to follow it up with a moisturizer and sunscreen. 

This is the salicylic acid face wash accompaniment to the above serum. It’s great for controlling acne and clogged pores in a gentle way. 

This essence is designed to work in conjunction with the Vinoperfect Radiance Serum to boost its brightening effects. I have tried a few bottles of this stuff and can vouch for its moisturizing and glowy powers.

This is the go-to cleanser I use every day. It’s a no-frills, gentle, and soothing face wash for my acne-prone skin. 

Everyone is washing their hands more than ever these days, so hand creams are important. This cream is designed to soften and moisturize your hands and nails using grape seed oil, shea butter, and more. 

Where my fellow acne sufferers at? This helps rid your pores of gunk, allowing for clearer skin. 

This night cream has glycolic acid, which encourages cell renewal and smooths out your skin texture. 

This serum has a slightly heavier feel than the Vinoperfect Radiance Serum—yet is still lightweight—and is formulated to focus on moisturizing rather than brightening. A great buy if you have dry skin. 

The right eye cream can help you fake a good night’s sleep—and this one will definitely do the trick. It boasts vitamin C, rosehip oil, and grape water to  brighten and moisturize.
