Rave review on the outset but I'm concerned.
I picked up a small sample I had laying around since forever. Used under eye, apparently my thinner under eye skin didn't like it and I was immediately heavily wrinkled - didn't do that again and things returned to normal. I used the rest of the sample in teeny-tiny amounts for about a week on my smile lines only at night and *over retin-a*. I want to be clear on that - maybe the retin-a took this moisturizer to another level because in about 4 days I noticed the smile lines weren't as deep. I kept a close eye on them. At day 6-7 the left side is 60% smoothed, right side 30% - so fast and so sure a great change that I ordered a full size, yes at the incredible price point of $158usd. (However I did start at ebates and used a 10% coupon code at Sephora dot com. All told I saved about $20usd if that matters to anyone.) I'm watching the current progress as I have run out of sample and the purchase won't be here for another 2 days. Will my skin de-plump in 2 or 3 days? I'll let you know.
A note retin-a users might be interested in, I have noticed more exfoliation in the areas I used this product over retin-a.
My concern is I've read the reviews and thought about the purchase for days before taking the plunge. What I found in the reviews from several sources is that a few people have questioned if the sample and purchase formulas are the same. Apparently the sample is thought to be more potent. On that, I'll definitely let you know. I'm not about to be fooled out of 150 bucks.

So I used this last year and decided to give it a go with the night infusion cream instead. That was great, but nothing I've found compares to this. It is the best night cream I have ever used (it should be for the price!) and with just the once nightly use I can see a difference in my skin. When I started using this again, in a couple of weeks my skin was just so much clearer/brighter and youthful looking. It smells great, sinks right into my skin, and is especially helpful in keeping my skin moisturized. And the best thing is it is non-comedogenic, so important for me it's all I can use. I will continue to purchase this product and would definitely recommend it. Oh and when your bottle runs low just unscrew the top and remove the inner packaging from the bottle, theres still a lot more in there.

Fantastic moisturizer. Feels and smells great, really imparts moisture to my oily dehydrated skin, making my skin feel lush and plump.

Sorry for the low ratings on this but I am on the fence about this product. My biggest peeve is with the price.
I am 44 and need a good night face cream and eye cream. I picked up a set with both this cream and the Premier Cru eye cream. The La Creme came in a small tube but I don't think this is the normal packaging for this product. But I am unsure so I wont speak about packaging.
While the product is a nice night time cream and my skin does look good after using it, I just don't feel that I am wowed by it. In order for me to pay this high a retail price, it better do wonders.
I did find that my skin tone is more even and brightened after using so it's not that this isn't working that I have a hard time with it.

This product is just fantastic! I have just open account to leave review, since it is best moisturizer that I ever had. I have dehydrated skin, and mimic wrinkles on the forehead (3 lines!), yet my forehead can be sometimes (in summer time) a bit greasy, but just a bit.
After first use my skin was much softer in the morning, so I went back to pharmacy in Paris where price was lower than in other parts in EU and bought one additional bottle.
After using maybe 3/4 of first bottle I noticed my mimic wrinkles on forehead are less visible, and like plumped from inside. Also my skin is soft, it is glowing and it looks much better than before.
Earlier was using products from Chanel (suited best my skin), Clinique, Biotherm, and have tried also Collistar, Lancaster, Este Lauder, Nuxe, Dior, and many more, and I can warmly recommend this cream as best fitting my skin than all over-mentioned ones.
I also like smell, and package- you can use all, till last drop since it has plastic bag vacuum package inside.

This is my favourite moisturiser ever - it seems thick but sinks in really well. I use one pump and it really spreads out into a lot of cream - I really like the texture of this cream. A bottle lasts a surprisingly long time considering I'm using it twice a day on my face and neck. My skin is dry and dehydrated but with quite a few open pores and blackheads (lovely!) and my eyes are quite sensitive. No problems with this - my skin is really looking a lot fresher and I'm sure my open pores have improved too.
I'm on my second bottle now and am really pleased with it. Also, you can open the bottle and get a few more days out of it once the pump stops working so 5 stars for the packaging too!

No. This is nothing but an over hyped, drugstore level cream with no visible benefits. Amlactin and Cerave would do more, seriously. It is mid-weight, not particularly finely textured and makes my skin oily as the day goes on. For the price, I see no redeeming features. After using the full sized cream and eye cream in the cru range, i'm done with this brand. If you want something natural, try Immortelle, its seriously much better or the divine range is also better. I don't recommend this under any circumstance, you will just be disappointed for the price.

I wanted to like it but after applying it made some of the fine wrinkles on my face appear MUCH larger and barely moisturized my skin. It also made me look greasy & oily, which rarely happens with my skin. It looked more like a film on my face than a moisturizer or cream.

I have always enjoyed Caudalie's range of products so when I got a free sample of their Premier Cru cream I was excited to try something new especially as I knew it was very expensive and as a nurse I was sure the sample would be as far as I got.
I was very wrong, I love this cream. Its so light and not all all greasy like some. It dries in quickly and your skin feels so fresh and it can breathe. After using it the first time I thought it was a coincidence that my skin looked so bright and fresh and believe me after 12hour days this is unusual. So when my lovely mum bought me a bottle as a birthday present I was delighted and have got into the habit of applying x 2 a day and use their eye cream also as its light and does not cause my eyes to be running or red and sore the next day. My face looks the best its ever looked, my fine lines on my forehead have faded and my skin has a lovely glow so I would definitely say its the best cream I have ever used and thats a lot of creams at 42!!!! My husband is continually commenting on how well I look, crikey poor man what has he been living with for the last 24yrs if its only now he comments on my glow!!! So start saving, you use such a small amount it will last for ages.

This cream feels like a body butter for your face but not greasy. It is so moisturizing and it feels so luxurious. I love that this cream covers all signs of aging with resveratrol, vineferine, plant oils, peptides...etc. I got this at Nordstrom Rack for $43 dollars! A bargain considering the original price is $150. I would probably repurchase but its really expensive. I will update if I notice younger skin.
