I have had some amazing results with this product. I was using a Vitamin C serum for a while but then switched over after talking with a Sephora consultant about the benefits of this serum. Read my full review on my blog at www dot Ameeme dot Blogspot dot com

I had been wanting to try this Caudalie serum for the longest time. I hesitated because of the price tag. Luckily, Sephora was having their annual VIB 20% off in the beginning of November. So this was one of my discounted purchases.
- I knew right away that this product would give me results over a few months. But I do see small improvements with my skin. Overall, my skin is glowing, my tiny acne scars and marks are disappearing
- You need the smallest amount for your entire face. One time I applied too much and my combination skin became an oil slick.
- Because I am oily t-zone'd, I only apply my moisturizer in the spots I really need it (sides of my face and my mouth area)
- I have one red acne mark on the bridge of my nose that has been bothering me for a few years now. It hasn't faded completely whatsoever, but I can tell that this product is helping because I only need a tiny bit of concealer now to cover it. Before using this serum, I had to layer concealer on this one spot.
- It really helps if you exfoliate 2-3 times a week and do facial masks to get the gunk out of your skin to allow the serum to really seep into your skin
If you're able and willing to dish out the money to buy this full price, then I recommend it.

I got this among other caudalie product samples for a 500 point perk and was very displeased with all of them. I'm pretty sure this broke me out. I have a lot of acne scars from picking at acne and thought this would be good to lighten them. This product felt very sticky on the skin, it did not smooth over easily. It doesn't smell very good either. I do love the packaging I love when serums have pipettes it makes me feel so fancy. Overall I only used it a handful of times and broke out in horrendous acne. Keep in mind I have very dry skin so maybe that had something to do with how it didn't spread over my skin with ease.

Love love love this product. I have combination skin (normal cheeks/oily t-zone) and have hyperpigmentation from sun damage along my cheek bones. I started using this product a month ago, morning and night, after reading some online reviews and I have already seen dramatic lightening of my spots. I love the thin consistency of the product because it feels like it just glides on your face and gets absorbed really quickly. It has a great, unique fresh scent and it does a great job moisturizing (although I do put on moisturizer afterwards--you could definitely get away with not putting moisturizer on if you have normal skin). You also only need a tiny bit; after one month of twice a day use, the bottle looks like I have barely made a dent. It is very expensive, but I think this bottle was last me a long time and it has definitely been worth the splurge.

I'm on my second bottle of this serum, and usually only use it at night. I've noticed small differences in my skin. A lot of my acne scarring has faded and my overall skin tone is more even. I like that only a small amount of product is needed to apply to the whole face, the first bottle lasted me about 5 months. Definitely, exfoliating a few times a week helps and I do not find this serum to be drying (although I moisturize after applying this).
It's expensive for what it does and how slowly it works but I'll continue to buy it until I find a better alternative. I made the switch to this from Clinique's Even Better skin corrector since Clinique's product contains hydroquinone, a bleaching agent.

Expensive worthless product that did nothing for my sun spots but also dried out my already dry skin. Pretty bottle though.

It is a nice serum, but totally overpriced. I used a bottle during the summer months and it did anything to lighten my dark spots. Of course I worn sunscreen as I am very careful with the sun. You feel the moisture in your skin, but many less expensive serums can give you the same results. Won't repurchase

This is my second bottle. I have been using this serum religiously every night for the past few months. At first I did not notice any dramatic difference but now I see myself with faded dark spots and my face complexion got brighter and more radiant. I like this serum because it doesnt have harsh chemicals or preservatives. I will continue buying this serum.

I am now on my 2nd bottle of this hydrating, balancing serum. I have oily acne prone skin with sun spots. I have noticed adding this to my routine has helped balanced my skin with the right amount of hydration. I have fewer break outs, my skin looks more calm and less red. My esthetician commented without prompting that my skin was looking more even. I have been getting facials for the past 8 months, I have been using this serum for the past 4 months. I highly recommend this product.

This serum has always been a favorite of mine. When I discovered it at around 17, I couldn't afford it. Every time I set foot in Sephora, I would not leave without stopping by the Caudalie section and putting some of this on my face. The scent is divine. The packaging is flawless. The results -- better than most products you will find in Sephora to be honest. It DOES show improvement (unlike Fresh products, for instance) if you are trying to fade acne scars.
When I finally got my hands on a full-size bottle at 22, I was ecstatic. This was one of the first things I bought with my first checks as a court reporter. Just the ritual alone of putting two drops at night and drops in the morning (one for each cheek) was so relaxing and luxurious. The look of it on my dresser made me feel like a million bucks. Even picking it up - the weighted glass - was a pleasure. I only used it for my cheeks because that's the only places I really wanted to brighten because of light acne scars, and I also didn't want to use more than was necessary.
I have confidence that my acne scars would have faded with this alone in a year or two (truly), but I have found a cheaper and more effective way to fade them (AHAs, namely, lactic acid). Now I do MUAC's 40% lactic acid peels once a week and put on argan oil every other night under my moisturizer to prevent acne, and my scars are nearly gone (it hasn't even been three months). I can walk out the house with no makeup already.
Because what I needed for is already almost gone and because there is a product that does more than it for half the price, I will not repurchase. Also, because of the price, the questionable ingredients (fragrance, for instance), and the fact that it does cause slight clogging for me, I would have already had some hesitation. If you are sensitive to AHAs, maybe it is worth a try. This bottle will always hold a place in my heart because I admired it for so long from a distance. As a serum, it is not that pricey since there are many that go for more than $100. If it never caused clogged skin, I would consider using it under my SPF every day as extra protection, but I will be looking for a different serum for that purpose.
Pros: does brighten with no irritation, protects against the sun under SPF, pleasant scent, perfect packaging, natural cruelty-free brand, fades into skin
Cons: so-so ingredients, does cause slight clogging, other better products for fading acne scars
