Caudalie Vinopure Purifying Gel Cleanser

The Vinopure Collection from Caudalie has been one of my favourites from the brand and the Purifying Toner is my absolute favourite product alongside the Beauty Elixir, both of which I go through a lot of throughout the year.  New to the range is the Vinopure Purifying Gel Cleanser* and I was excited to give it a try.
Caudalie Vinopure Purifying Gel Cleanser
This Cleanser is described as being a natural and refreshing cleansing gel unclogs the skin to tighten pores, reduce excess sebum and blemishes. It fits perfectly within the existing Vinopure range as the start of your skincare routine, giving you the chance to use the other three afterwards.  I have combination-oily skin, so this range is perfect for my skin type. It contains six organic essentials oil which is said to be a highly effective concentrate for tackling blemishes, but it is three of these oils that really make their stand and can be used in a variety of ways:

  • Rose Geranium - Used to soothe the skin and it also works as a powerful antibacterial ingredient.
  • Hybrid Lavender - A combination of real and wild lavender, its blend gives a much richer essence and is perfect for helping the skin to heal as well as its relaxing properties, it is used to relax, calm and can also help to relieve cramps and muscle contractions.
  • Peppermint - One of the major essential oils in aromatherapy, peppermint is known for its ability to stimulate and reinvigorate the mind and body. Traditionally used to calm nausea or relieve headaches, it also works as a decongestant too.

It is also enriched in natural salicylic acid to help gently exfoliate and unclog those pores and as it is a Caudalie product, you won't be surprised to find grapeseed polyphenols and they are one of the most powerful antioxidants which help to protect the skin from free radical attacks. Lemongrass oil is also added in and its job and of course is to help with decongestion, Rosemary which is great for its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and the all-important organic Grape Water which not only soothes but also moisturises too.

On the skin, what I love about this Purifying Gel Cleanser is how it feels on the skin, the gel is instantly cooling and as soon as it comes into contact with water, it foams as you massage it onto the skin. At this point, those essential oils really come to life as the peppermint battles with the Lavender to create a relaxing scent.

After using, my skin feels silky smooth to the touch and more importantly for me, because I have combination-oily skin, I don't want to use products which leave my skin feeling dry and taut to the touch, with this cleanser, I have skin that is hydrated and smooth to the touch. As expected from Caudalie, this is such a fabulous addition to the Vinopure range and it is a great start to the skincare routine.
The Caudalie Vinopure Purifying Gel Cleanser is available from Caudalie, Cult Beauty, Lookfantastic and Feelunique and it is priced at £16 for 150ml.
