Caudalie debuts new skin-care line and facial with anti-aging benefits

This September, French beauty brand Caudalie launched a new skin-care line featuring their star ingredient, Resveratrol. Though the brand has long used this polyphenol with antioxidant properties, they are currently awaiting approval for an exciting patent in the hopes that their new technology, developed with Harvard University, will become exclusive to their Resveratrol Lift collection. The tech fuses Resveratrol with micro-hyaluronic acids and promises to hydrate and plump skin by encouraging the skin's own production of hyaluronic acid—thus encouraging a more filled-out, lifted appearance. To go with the new skin-care line, Caudalie will launch the Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Facial ($175) on November 1. The facial is exclusive in Canada to Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie at Toronto's Shangri-La Hotel and I was lucky enough to experience it with Caudalie's New York–based director of treatment, Régine Berthelot, who treated me to an hour of total relaxation including masking, hot towels for the feet and a scalp and neck massage. The main point of distinction for this facial, besides the products used, is Caudalie's  le palpé roulé massage technique, which involves "holding and rolling the skin, working on the muscles," she says. "It works the connective tissue, which has a tendency to cause the skin to sag. The massage lifts everything up and re-oxygenates the tissue so that it can absorb the serum and creams." After I left the spa, I had several people say that I was glowing. So the treatment works—at very least in the short term! If you can't get to Toronto or prefer to conduct your own treatments, all of the products are available for purchase on ca.caudalie.com, sephora.ca and at the spa. For a mini facial at home, Berthelot recommends exfoliating your face with a scrub or Clarisonic brush, applying a serum and then layering a mask over top to help the serum penetrate deeply. Leave it on for 10 minutes and you should reveal fresher, softer skin. Caudalie_products Resveratrol Lift Eye Lifting Balm, $66. Resveratrol Lift Firming Serum, $86. Resveratrol Lift Face Lifting Moisturizer, $69. Resveratrol Lift Night Infusion Cream, $79.  Follow us on our new Instagram account, @CLxStyle!
