CAUDALIE Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum Review

In my previous post, I shared the gel moisturizer from the Caudalie Vinosource line and how well it works to keep skin hydrated without making it oily and prevent dryness and redness on skin.  Today I will share this skincare superstar which I am finding really hard to part with. I am close to finishing the bottle of this SOS Serum and I am actually wondering if I can live without it or just move to something more potent (read: anti- wrinkle) because my skin is getting older. The sooner I find amicable products that my skin cant help but love, the better it is. So, I am writing this blog to convince myself for a repurchase of the Caudalie SOS Serum, though I am distracted by a couple of amazing antiaging serums, the light weight texture of this serum with the benefits of hyaluronic acid is making me think twice.  

More on what the Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum is and how I like it on my skin on today's blog..

So let's begin with how it all started. I love hyaluronic acid, as I have seen how it can transform the health of my skin and have loved using HA based products during the cold, dry winter months. As I grow older, my skin tends to loose its moisture faster than I would like to imagine. Add stress, kids, Covid19 and the situation just worsens. So when I saw the SOS Serum as the first step to the Caudalie Vinosource routine inside the packaging, I quickly decided to get it for myself, because my skin was suffering from the stress and anxiety of being home. 
Shopping beauty wasn't easy couple months ago, as stores were closed and online orders took forever to deliver. On top of that I was out of my skincare products! So I immediately ordered it online from Sephora's website and started using it as the first step in my skincare regimen, or shall I say my Caudalie routine. 

CAUDALIE Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum is formulated with organic grape water, hyaluronic acid and olive squalane as its key ingredients. This vegan, cruelty free and parabens free serum promises to reduce dryness and redness caused by dryness. Since my skin keeps getting more and more sensitive with every passing year, I felt an urgent need to address this problem and fortify my skin barrier before I run in to more skin issues. 

This serum has helped me achieve hydrated and clearer skin. Ever since I started using this on my face and neck, I have fewer breakouts and my skin feels less itchy. I got a bout of breakout due to wearing masks for long and though, this is not something that happens commonly, I am aware it was happening on my skin, because my skin is super sensitive to everything. And the Caudalie SOS serum has greatly helped me protect my skin by providing the moisture it needs. I follow with the Vinosurce Moisturizing Sorbet which is completely non oily. 

That is my AM routine quite literally! I follow with an SPF lotion or just go ahead with my SPF based sun screen. I feel cutting down on exfoliants, mists, toners, and face masks has greatly helped my skin recently. If I feel my skin need a little exfoliation, I apply yogurt+turmeric+lemon as a mask (once per week) and rinse off with warm water. I have been using a non foamy cleanser in the morning and micellar water at night. I am just running away from alkaline products on my face, because there is enough science to believe that it causes more damage than good. 

I am also reading the book Beyond Soap by Dr Sandy Skotnicki which explains everything from why our generation is suffering from skin sensitivity to eczema, acne and other skin problems. Can I relate to all that? You bet! 

So overall, Caudalie Vinosource products are great for my sensitive, often dry skin and I find that sticking to all products designed to work together as a regimen is helping is achieve smoother, more hydrated skin. I will definitely repurchase the Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum for my winter skincare routine, but as we transition to fall, I am looking at some serums which will help me eliminate the acne marks and reduce the look of acne scarring on my face. I can't help but say being a beauty blogger aka product junkie comes with its side effects of always trying new things, but if I can finish a bottle of serum in a few months, that should have some credibility to it! ;)
