Caudalie Parties at the Plaza and Toasts a New Eye Cream—And You Can Win It!

Feather-tipped and gold-accented masks may have been the must-have accessory at Caudalie and Sephora's Masquerade party Wednesday feting Caudalie's new Premier Cru The Eye Cream, but the unofficial belle of the ball was the Caudalie Vinothérapie Spa at the Plaza Hotel and its floor-to-ceiling glass wine rack that's smack in the middle of its French Paradox Lounge. Housing reds and whites from the brand's very own winery in the Bordeaux region of France, a post-treatment glass of wine is always encouraged&mdash:it's the only spa with its own sommelier. And holding court in the lounge was Caudalie's founder, Mathilde Thomas, who gave us some serious beauty 4-1-1. "Our Premier Cru moisturizer is a product that does it all, so introducing a Premier Cru eye cream was the obvious next step," she told us. "I wanted to combine the French view of long-term treatment with the American love of the quick-fix, so it has both instant and lasting effects. I like to think of it as 90% skincare and 10% makeup, because it gives the eyes an instant lift and has a sheen that acts like a concealer, but it also contains our grapevine-based antioxidants that have super powerful anti-aging benefits." Consisting of fourteen treatment rooms, the 8,000 square foot spa on the Plaza's fourth floor incorporates Caudalie products into extra luxe vinothérapie treatments—think honey and wine wraps, crushed cabernet scrubs, a fresh grape massage, or an hour and 50 minute Premier Cru anti-aging facia—and with the launch of a new Premier Cru eye cream and Thomas' upcoming plans to add even higher levels of treatments to the spa, (not to mention some really great glasses of vino), this is as chic as it gets.
