COMPETITION! Caudalie Launches NEW Anti-Oxidant Skincare: Polyphenol C15

Your alarm goes off super early. You check your smartphone for any notifications and news you may have missed overnight, before starting another hectic day in the office. After a few essential coffees, lunch scoffed on the go and afternoon cake, you either head to the gym or out to meet your friends for dinner. Once you're home there are emails to answer, plans to organise, television to catch up on and social media to peruse. Before you get into bed, there's even more checking of the smartphone and an attempt to catch up with the message you've been meaning to send to your mum. We all leave hectic lives and juggle numerous different roles every single day, as well as exposing ourselves to the elements of city life, late nights and early mornings. Every second of our turbo-charged day generates tiny invisible aggressors called 'free radicals,' which become harder to fight off as we age. As soon as we hit our thirties, our skin begins to weaken and therefore takes a lot longer to repair or recover from damage; these free radicals can cause our skin to become dull, wrinkled and pigmented - all factors which we associate with the signs of ageing. In order to help minimise this and keep our skin looking radiant, French skincare brand Caudalie have developed a trio of products that block 100% of free radicals, as well as offering an instantly plumping effect to help our skin looking great.

The range of Polyphenol C15 products includes an Anti-Wrinkle Defense Serum (£35), Eye and Lip Cream (£26), and SPF20 Protect Fluid (£29), all designed to completely protect skin cells so they can regenerate more effectively. Put simply, these products enable skin to perform as it once did; the result is smooth, radiant, glowing and youthful looking skin. As a huge fan of Caudalie products, this range of Polyphenol C15 is a welcome addition to my morning routine, especially as I've hit my thirties and am more aware than ever of how my skin is changing. The hero product is definitely the Defense Serum, which can be applied using the dropper to dispense a small amount onto the hands and then massaged into the skin. The formula is extremely light and absorbs super quickly, leaving an amazing sheen on the skin which helps it to glow; once it's fully absorbed, skin is left both feeling and looking super smooth. The Defense Serum contains the highest concentration of active ingredients, providing an instant visible result as well as long-term skin benefit.

Although we have a tendency to wear SPF only when we're on holiday, sun exposure is the biggest cause of ageing and where we can really help to delay the onset of symptoms. Caudalie's Polyphenol C15 SPF20 Protect Fluid is the perfect companion for skin, every single day. It provides a broad-spectrum sunscreen to preserve the skin from UVA and UVB radiation, as well as being oil-free and ultra-light to the touch. It contains ingredients to help smooth the skin instantly, as well as providing the long-term benefit of Polyphenol C15, making it an all-in-one must-have product. Not only does it smell delicious and remind me of warm summer days, but it's so light you can wear it under foundation without even realising it's there. Most SPF formulas are too heavy for the face and can cause blocked pores, irritation and breakouts, but Caudalie have cleverly ensured this is predominately a skincare product with the added benefit of a high SPF - making it seamlessly fit into our existing skincare routine.

In addition, the Eye and Lip cream is a great complementary product that also provides multiple uses. Not only can you use it around the eye area to help plump dehydrated skin and combat dark circles, but it can be used on the lips to plump the pout and provide a smooth finish - essentially a great hydrating lip cream that can be used both morning and night. It contains soothing ingredients Calendula and Witch Hazel, as well as Licorice to decongest and a tightening Fern extract, all combined to provide a subtle effect that lifts the skin and boosts collagen. Although it's a strange sensation to use a cream on the eyes and lips, it makes sense as these are both highly sensitive areas which also have a much thinner layer of skin. Thanks to the targeted nozzle, this is easy to apply on the go and great for touch-ups throughout the day... Especially as it's a great lip base if you suffer from dry or chapped lips!

This is such a great range from Caudalie, providing great protection and instant results in three different formulas that are both easy to use and practical. As we all have busy lives and need to minimise the faff as much as possible in the morning, these make looking after our skin quick and easy - you can apply all three, do your hair and be ready to apply the rest of your makeup or base. In celebration of this new launch, Caudalie have developed a Facebook app which allows you to develop your own Anti'Ox profile and find out what products are right for you. All you have to do is answer ten simple multiple choice questions (including how much sun you're exposed to, where you live and your stress levels,) and you'll be given an Anti'Ox result. I'm apparently 50% Anti-Oxed, which isn't too bad but shows that everyone could do with a little Polyphenol C15 in their lives. Why don't you have a go at completing the mini questionnaire on their Facebook page? It only takes two minutes!

If you want to try the new products for yourself, then I've got FOUR Anti-Ox special edition boxes to give away to four lucky readers! Each box contains a sample all three products, as well as some handy post-it notes and an anti-stress ball to keep you calm and collected. If you want to give the three Polyphenol C15 products a whirl for yourself and see why I love them so much, then enter the competition via the widget below. Good luck!
