A bestselling gel-cream to intensely moisturize and calm dehydrated, irritated skin.

Solutions for:
- Dryness
- Dullness and uneven texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles

If you want to know more…
This cult classic gel-cream deeply hydrates, soothes, and softens all skin types—even the hypersensitive ones. Powered by Caudalie's organic grape water and patented grape-seed polyphenols, this cream not only provides hydration, but it also protects the skin from free-radicals, which causes wrinkles. This formula is rich in Vinolevure® to strengthen skin to become less sensitive and more resilient over time.

When applied, the texture is initially a cream, and once it comes in contact with the skin, it “breaks” and turns into a gel, creating a surge of moisture. This “quick break” technology is the lipophilic technology that allows water to be trapped in the cream, and once the cream touches the skin, it releases the water for lightweight hydration.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

Beauty Tip:
Store your Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet in the refrigerator for an intense feeling of freshness and coolness.

"The lotus has been cultivated in eastern Asia for over 3,000 years. The plant is considered sacred in many cultures, but I especially love the way the Buddhists regard it. They believe that it is the ultimate symbol of complete purification, as it journeys through muddy waters to rise above the surface and blossom into a stunning flower. Various parts of the lotus have been used in traditional herbal medicine for centuries to treat a number of skin diseases, most often inflammation. After doing clinical tests, we were stunned at this ingredient’s high levels of polyphenols, the most powerful antioxidants known to defend against wrinkle-causing free radicals."—Lev Glazman, Fresh Co-founder
