The Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet might not need any introduction though this is the first time I’m mentioning it on my beauty blog.
This fluffy, luxurious moisturiser is well loved and one of Caudalie’s top selling products, but I had never been able to really give any attention to it – and Caudalie as a brand, actually – due to it not being available where I lived for a very long time.
I finally tested this famous moisturiser last year, and talk about worth the hype!
Caudalie is a French skincare brand said to be on the cutting edge of skincare, and the brand itself is based around grapevine and grapes, due to the founders – husband and wife team Mathilde and Bertrand Thomas – vineyard, where they started to believe that grapes have powerful effects on the skin.
And with the Vinosource – “wine source” – moisturising Sorbet, you can really start to believe grapes may just be the answer to good skin!
Like Its Namesake
Imagine a gorgeous whipped sorbet ice cream… that’s the consistency of this moisturiser. That, to me, is already half the benefit of this moisturiser – this cooling, light gel-ceam is so fun to apply! But not only that, it’s also a fantastic product.
Said to be a calming, hydrating moisturiser to quench and strengthen dry skin, it includes hydrating grape water – the whole Caudalie brand is based on the brand founders vineyard – as well as chamomile and other antioxidants to calm and sooth the skin.
I have dry, sensitive skin, and this moisturiser was fantastic for it. It’s incredibly gentle, and my skin looked supple, brighter and all around happy, if that makes sense. In one day I already saw a difference to my skin after applying morning and night, although I kinda of like this as a morning moisturizer due to it’s fresh, calming properties.
I am not sure if Caudalie is a natural skincare brand per say, but I know they are not clock full of chemicals and their products are often said to be “better” for your skin, and after trying the Vinosource Sorbet, I can see that. It felt so natural and pure on the skin, somehow. The product itself, too, was like rubbing ice cream sorbet onto your skin – cooling, gentle, and woke up my skin to make it feel fresh and happy. (I mean, who isn’t happy when there’s ice cream around?!)
There is not much else to say about it, except the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet does what it says and is so gentle and calming for the skin, I reckon even the most sensitive of skins would be able to handle this.
Where to Buy

The bottle is a gorgeous, welcomed piece to my bathroom counter and will look fab on yours too. Plus, a little goes a long way, and this 30ml tube, while a little on the expensive side, will surely last many months before you’ll need to restock.
Definitely a moisturiser to try if you’re looking for a gentle, simple daily moisturiser to keep skin hydrated and looking fresh and youthful.
