Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum

I love you, S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum. I really do. And I want to shout it off the rooftops like some severely co-dependent and obsessive lover, "I love you, Caudalie... AND I WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW!!!" Seriously. I'm one coffee away from Tom Cruise-ing my couch and exasperating, "I'm in love... I'm in love...."

Having been cursed with oily (and somewhat combination) skin my whole life, I never thought I needed MORE hydration...

...but I was wrong. See Mom, I can TOO admit when I'm wrong!

I spoke of my "dehydrated, but oily skin" epiphany in my facial oil posts (here and here), so no need to repeat myself.... to sum it up: my. skin. loves. this. Despite a bitter east coast winter, my face was plump, soft, and fully hydrated. Foundation and tinted moisturizer went on like a breeze, and the only times I noticed dry patches collecting foundation was during a brief stint where I couldn't find my little sample tube -- a tragedy I couldn't even wish upon my worst enemy (who is currently, by the way, the guy that constantly puts take-out menus in every crevice possible on my porch/front door and may or may not have dry or dehydrated skin).

For anyone with dry and/or dehydrated skin, I can't recommend this product enough. Get a sample somewhere -- my sample tube lasted for a little over a month with 2x a day usage -- and then feel free to send me a thank you e-card for the rec. I am quite fond of ones that put my face on to dancing elves, animals, etc... thank you in advance.

But in all seriousness, just ignore that hefty price tag and join in on the wonderful smelling hydration. Your skin will thank you. And in order to also keep your wallet happy, use and its constant 15-20% off promos.
