natural products

I would like to try one of the "natural" skincare lines. I use Philosophy. Has anyone used Caudalie and/or Origins? Thoughts? I have dry, sensitive skin, and quite a bit of sun damage.

I use a bunch of Caudalie products, I love the Vinoperfect Radience serum! It is so light and airy to apply, works really well on age spots and it faded a nasty scar that I had on my wrist. Definitely give their products a try, there is a nice Our Favorites kit that gives you 4 products to try for a great price ($35). The Primiere Cru set is also nice.


Hope this helps!

Both line are very gentle toward the skin. I'm using Origins because it feels good and is relatively inexpensive, the Brighter by Nature and Charcoal mask are really good. The anti-aging lines feels good but are not as effective as Caudalie. I love love love Caudalie, but they are expensive, so I'm sticking with Origins right now.

Re: natural products

Try Eminence. I know I just posted about this on a different question. But seriously if your skin is sensitive, beware of Origins. Origins dried out my skin to a point of rawness and cracking within a week. I had to use olive oil to return it to normal. I was using a basic, regular line assigned to me by one of their store associates. Such a mistake.

Re: natural products

I'm not a fan of Origins, and Eminence was okay, but I felt like their products are too targeted/specific.  For example, if I wanted to shrink pores and help my fine lines, I'd have to buy 3 different products to target each specific thing.  Never tried Caudalie.  My skin is dry and sensitive as well and some other products really irritated my skin. I found my holy grail from a referral from a celebrity makeup artist friend who uses an all-natural product called Airelle.  I can't express how much I love what it does for my skin.  It's not cheap, but I've always figured you get what you pay for.  I hope you can find your holy grail too!

Re: natural products

Caudalie is one of my favorite lines but I really don't use them anymore.  I use Repechage, though you cannot buy it on Sephora - only in select salons and online.

Re: natural products

Origins is hit or miss for me. I absolutely love Dr. Weil's Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Cleanser for Origins. My skin is sensitive, on the dry side, plus I have bits of rosacea. My skin looks and feels calm after I use it. However, the Mega-Mushroom serum and face mask gave me bad reactions, and so did the Plantscription Anti-Aging SPF 25 cream.

If you have sun damage, I'm assuming you're looking for a serum - Caudalie makes the only serums that haven't given me a bad reaction (so far - I haven't tried everything yet). I currently use the Vinexpert Firming Serum. I'm young and more looking for preventative care, but I love how this makes my skin look and feel. It's expensive though, so I'm saving up for more.

Re: natural products

Depends on what you mean as "natural". Origins, for example, uses more botanicals in their line, but they, as an Estée Lauder company, test on animals. Murad and REN use no animal testing. As for organic lines, I have heard YouTubers use Michael Todd. Overall, keep in mind that parabens are use in a lot of products that have packaging that can't keep the ingredients safe from decay. Renee Rouleau, for example, uses very few parabens and no sulfates in her products.

So, what is is you're looking for when you say "natural"? That'll help more. : )

Re: natural products

I have sensitive skin and some sun damage. I love the natural skincare lines but breakout like the plague when I used Philosophy, Origins and Caudalie. I use a combination of Josie Maran, Korres and Bare Minerals. My skin looks and feels great. That being said, I did use Murad Spot Removal Serum since my sun spots were getting darker. I know it's not natural but I think I'm balancing it out by being gluten, sugar and dairy-free. Plus the majority of products I use are relatively natural.

Re: natural products

I've been enjoying Origins Checks & Balances cleanser.  I also really like the Plantscription Eye Treatment... A LOT!
