caudalie vinoperfect concentrated brightening essence review

Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence (49 USD; Made in France) is packed with potent ingredients like plant-derived Glycolic Acid, Organic Grape Water and White Peony Extract to reveal luminous and smooth skin.

I have had this guy in my routine since 2018 (original review here) and it is still a favorite. Although it might not be the most hydrating toner/essence that you will come across, as far as skin radiance and texture are concerned - it will deliver. If you are new to the "Glycolic" or AHA scene in general, then it is worth mentioning that a formula like this might cause a tingling sensation at first, however, this is nothing to panic about. Since this acid is known for effectively exfoliating the outermost layer of dead cells and boosting collagen production, it penetrates skin deeply and some people need time to get used to it.

A formula like this is perfect for gradually erasing skin pigmentation, tightening pores, cleaning out blackheads and smoothing out the skin. When used daily, you start seeing results within two weeks. It does make my skin a bit dry, but when used together with a hydrating serum or cream (plus gentle physical exfoliator once a week), it works just fine. Not something I use daily at the moment, but if you are on a hunt for a mild Glycolic Acid toner/essence - this could be the one.

Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence has a very light, [hard to label] herbal scent. It does not linger, disappearing almost immediately.
