Caudalie makes some seriously dreamy serums – I thought I’d compare all of them in case some of you are on the fence about which one to get!


Caudalie Vinopure Serum

This is a light, somewhat minty-smelling serum designed to purify oily, acne-prone skin. I’ll admit I haven’t used this one much; in fact after using up a deluxe sample of it I haven’t cracked open this full size bottle. This one just didn’t suit my skin as it wasn’t hydrating enough for me, but I could see it being lovely for someone with less dehydrated skin!

Vinosource S.O.S. Serum

Currently one of the mainstays of my #skincareroutine , I LOVE this milky serum. I find it very hydrating but it doesn’t leave stickiness or greasiness and it layers very very well without pilling. It has an almost identical texture to the VinoPerfect Serum but is $30 cheaper, so if you don’t need the anti-aging/brightening benefits but just want a great serum, I’d go for the S.O.S. serum!

VinoPerfect Serum

One of my HGs, this is my third or fourth bottle? (I’ve lost count). Lovely milky, hydrating texture along with brightening and antioxidant benefits! In the brightening department I do find that it evens out my skin tone but isn’t as effective as a good vitamin C serum in lightening pigmentation. But it’s also very gentle and great if you have sensitive skin. At $79 it’s pricey for sure, but my favorite among all the Caudalie serums and I think it’s worth it.

Premier Cru Serum

Such a luxurious bottle, and price ($150). I like this serum a lot, but not enough to justify spending that much out of pocket (the Premier Cru Cream though is another story, I’d definitely repurchase it). It’s a lovely hydrating serum, not milky, absorbs very quickly and layers very well. While I do find it hydrating I still feel like my skin needs more. For the price you could get almost TWO of the Vinoperfect serum, and that’s what I’d do, TBH!

Which One Would I Buy?

While all of the Caudalie Serums are lovely, one is my clear favorite, and that’s the VinoPerfect Serum at $79. If I wanted to be a little more budget conscious, I’d go for the VinoSource S.O.S. serum at $49. These are all kind of investment serums, to be honest, but they’re ones that I reach for time and time again, which makes them absolutely worth it to me!
