The Suits-all Hydrating Serum

The perfect spring skincare buy


By Amy Lawrenson

Sometimes our skin needs extra hydration. Either you suffer with a dry skin type and it’s always in need of moisture, or it has a tendency to get dehydrated. I have spot-prone skin so all the blemish-fighting products my dermatologist prescribes me tend to have a dehydrating effect. What’s important to know is that as long as your skin is hydrated then it will look bright, plump and dewy - a complexion I’m sure we all strive for.



Caudalie has just launched a serum that works for any skin type to instantly hydrate; well worth squeezing into your routine. S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum, £29, sinks in fast and contains organic grape water, which hydrates the skin while also reducing sensitivity and inflammation; hyaluronic acid to help your skin hold on to moisture; and olive squalane, that has antioxidant properties that protect the skin. I’ve been using it daily and not only does my complexion look brighter, but it has helped prevent that oily yet dry, tight feel I get across my cheeks during the day.

Caudalie S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum, £29 is available from John Lewis now.
