Some way, somehow, we've reached the final stretch of 2020. While most things about the end of the year are still unclear — obscured by a hazy cloud of hand sanitizer, perhaps — there's one thing you can pretty much always count on as winter rolls around: dry skin. To counteract the cold, wind, and low humidity that can cause extra dryness, you'll need some heavy-duty hydrating products. One such item? Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst-Quenching Serum.
For me, layering products that promise moisture over anything else (ie: no brightening or wrinkle-filling claims) is key whenever my skin starts to look a bit red and flaky. Hydration is this serum's main game: Its key ingredients are hyaluronic acid, olive squalane, and organic grape water, which the brand says work together to "restore the skin's water balance." Since there are no exfoliating ingredients, it's definitely gentle enough to use twice a day, if you're someone who likes to have a serum in both your morning and nighttime routines.
There's a tendency to think that in order for a serum or lotion to be a heavy-duty moisturizer, it also has to have a heavy texture. Not so with Caudalie's S.O.S serum. It's almost as lightweight as an essence and absorbs into the skin very quickly. Immediately after applying, my skin looks glowy and feels very bouncy — as if I've been getting eight hours of sleep and as many daily cups of water on a regular basis. As I type this approximately two hours before my dinnertime, my skin still looks very plump and hydrated from my morning skin-care routine.
If this sounds like the type of serum your skin would adore, I have great news. You can score Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst-Quenching Serum in our December Allure Beauty Box.
