Putting My Sephora VIB Points to Good Use with Caudalie!

Hi, everyone! After a self-imposed blogging break to get my work and life in order, I'm returning with a new post today. First off, I'd like to thank everyone for their warm congratulations on my PhD graduation- you have all made the accomplishment extra special!! This blog has truly kept me sane and balanced throughout graduate school and all of your support means so very much. Thank you, thank you!

I know there has been a lot of controversy in the Sephora BI/VIB world these days and, as such, I haven't been making any special moves to rack up my points ultra quickly. But in my normal month to month shopping, I'd managed to accumulate over 500 points and had been biding my time to wait for the perfect reward. Earlier this week, I found just the treat- the Caudalie Skincare Stars Set, which was a 500-Point Perk from Sephora. Well worth it in my books! 




Caudalie is a brand that's always on my radar, though I haven't tried much from the line over the years. I've heard great things about their formulas, appreciate their affinity for natural ingredients, and appreciate their several environmental initiatives. When I spotted the Skincare Stars Set, I knew it was finally my opportunity to give the brand a proper go.

The set contains four skincare items, pretty much a complete daily regimen. It includes their Gentle Cleansing Milk (1oz), Vinoperfect Radiance Serum (.33oz), which I've been dying to try for ages, Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet (.33oz), which I know has been raved about by Essie Button, and their Polyphenol C15 Anti-Wrinkle Eye & Lip Cream. All of the goodies feature their signature grape-based antioxidant and brightening ingredients and come in quite generously sized tubes given their mini status. 




I cannot wait to give this set a go- I'm fairly confident my skin will totally love it. Overall I'm so happy that I held out for the perfect VIB reward- I'll get back to you soon with my thoughts on the set to see if my patience truly paid off! 

Have you tried anything from Caudalie? Any favourites?

Hope you're all having a wonderful week! xo

  1. Ahhh I've been eying this set! I am too impatient, so I tend to spend my points on 100 point items. (:

  6. That is such a nifty set and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on them! And what Sephora controversy may I ask? I don't think I've came across it before.

    1. Ah, there was recently a special points event that sold out so quickly that most people ended up saving their points for nothing (the free gifts were suuuper limited). Lots of people were angry! So excited to try this set, though :)
