I am a self-proclaimed procrastinator, and no, I have no shame in that. I always put off doing something until the very last minute, or sometimes I won’t even do what I had planned to do... I’m working on it. So yes, I skip many things in life, but skipping moisturiser is definitely not one. For someone with dry skin it’s of the upmost importance that some sort of cream is used every single day, I mean hello, I’m trying to avoid wrinkles here.
I first heard of Caudalie, and I’m sure most of you did too, thanks to the hype around their Beauty Elixir, like seriously, everyone kept banging on about it and rightfully so. It’s one of my all-time favourite products and something I will happily repurchase time and time again. The Beauty Elixir sparked my interest in the brand and I tried a few more bits from them, mainly from the Vinosource range. I bought their Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum - which I highly recommend and it came in a set with their Grape Water and a mini version of the Moisturizing Sorbet. Bearing in mind that the set cost the same as the serum on its own and I loved every product that came in it, I kept repurchasing the set and was always gutted every time I squeezed out the last of the Moisturizing Sorbet.
I recently finished my Dior Hydra-Life Sorbet Creme and seeing as I have repurchased it three times already, I thought I’d go for something else this time. I finally picked up the full size Moisturizing Sorbet by Caudalie. It’s definitely the perfect moisturiser for the warmer months, it packs a punch in the hydration department which I most definitely need, but also sinks into the skin really quickly so it doesn’t leave that tacky feeling behind which can be rather uncomfortable in warm weather. The product is housed in a squeeze tube which is perfect for lugging around in your handbag and for travelling as you won’t have to worry about it breaking.
One moisturiser is clearly not enough when you need moisturise as much as I do, and after reading so many great reviews on the new Lancôme Énergie De Vie Liquid Moisturiser, I went ahead and bought that too. Now this was quite an ‘out of the box' purchase for me and something I would never usually go for because liquid + moisturiser doesn’t sound really good to someone with dry skin. But after researching a bit more about it and how it’s meant to add glow and loads of hydration, I took the plunge and I'm so glad I did. It’s perfect for days where I just feel a bit ‘meh’ and my skin is looking dull and lacklustre, this instantly makes me look more awake and like I’ve had a good 8h sleep. It has a serum-like texture and leaves the skin a bit tacky so it’s perfect to wear under makeup. It also feels really refreshing making it an absolute pleasure to use first thing in the morning.
