Caudalie S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum

11 June 2012

Caudalie is one of the more recent beauty blogger hypes, and for good reason too. I personally find skincare important and I've often found that quality is indeed what you need to get the best out of your skin, and so I don't mind paying a little more for a skincare product. Caudalie is priced quite well for the results you get I think, and widely available which is a bonus. I think one of my fav things about Caudalie, is that not only was it created by childhood sweethearts, but the main ingredients are from the vines you get when growing grapes - wine anyone? I was fortunate to receive this SOS Thirst Quenching Serum from Glossybox after winning a competition and after using it for about a month, I thought it was time to give my thoughts.

Packaging is typically Caudalie - minimalist, glassy and to the point. Personally, I love the glass bottles and although they do clunk a little in your makeup bag if you're on the move, they do look high quality. My bottle is a 30ml bottle, and over a month I've used about a third, which isn't too bad when you're using a product twice a day. Caudalie recommends to use twice daily, morning and evening, before your moisturiser which I've been doing. Now, I have dry skin so this product sounds perfect, and the truth is, it IS perfect. My skin has felt so revived since using this. It feels glowy, fresh, and most definitely hydrated. The consistency is very runny and milky, and a little stretches a long way. Plus, because it's so runny, it's very light on the skin and doesn't feel  like you're doused in product.

Would I buy again? Definitely yes. Fortunately I have over half of the product left which should last me until July/August I hope, but I'm happy to pay £26.10 for this life saver. You can buy it from Feel Unique and you get a free gift at the moment..tempted? I'd certainly be if I was near to running out! Has anyone else found this to be a miracle product for dry skin?

Also - apologies for not blogging in over a week. The Jubilee weekend seemed to take up so much time, and then we were busy moving house over 3 days - photos to come as soon as I can! Also, I'm really close to 600 followers - how exciting! Giveaway to come if I get there :)

  1. I have this, brought into it after all the hype. Story of my life haha! I wasn't impressed to be honest I didn't notice anything different happening to my skin. It is still dry. However I do love the Claudine cleanser!

  2. ooooh thanks for sharing x

  3. I read more and more great reviews on caudalie products everyday and it just makes me want to buy it more. I do like a bit of serum for treatment, but as i have oily-skin it is hard for me to consider this product seeing that it is for dehydrated skin. However, i really do want to try the Caudalie beauty elixer which is well-hyped about in the blogging community because of it's pore tightening benefits and it may help improve my skin :) Thanks for sharing and it's great to know that this is working wonders for you~

  4. ahhh no Tamsin I keep seeing amazing reviews on these products... running out of excuses to not get them! :)thanks for the info! :)

  5. I love reading product reviews, always makes me want to buy the product... Do you think this would work on combination/oily skin?


I appreciate each and every little comment I get. Thank you.
