Hydraluron Left - Caudalie Right

I'm a big fan of the Caudalie SOS Serum, but I've always wanted to find out how the Hydraluron by Indeed Labs measured up to it. Everyone has said how great the Hydraluron is due to the science behind the product but which one is better?

Caudalie SOS Serum £26.00 :- 

You get 30ml of product which is stored in a glass bottle with a pump. The product itself is white, with a water like consistency - it will run down your hand at a angle. When using this product I feel like my skin just drinks the product up. It's very moisturising and any sign of dry skin on my face instantly goes when I use this. It leaves my skin so soft and stops any dehydration in its track. It's got 97% of natural product in it. Oil free and hypoallergenic. So, it's a great product for getting rid of dry/dehydrated skin - good on all skin types and even sensitive skin .

Downside? Travel. The heavy glass packaging isn't great for travel if you use a skincare bag - because the glass is thick, it means that it will have less chance of it breaking. The pump also means you can't control how much product comes out, but I normally use around 1-2 pumps to my face and that's enough.

Indeed Labs Hydraluron £24.99 :-

This product also has 30ml of product which is stored in a soft plastic tube and you squeeze the product out. The product itself is a clear gel. I don't mind the actual product. It feels okay applying it, and it doesn't run like the Caudalie one does. It's great for dehydrated skin, and states on the tube 'Hyaluronic acid holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water' - WOW! The science behind it sounds amazing, and it's raved about amongst the blogsphere. It does leave you again with soft skin and does what it's meant to with stopping dehydration and dry skin. It's good on all skin types. It is clinically proven or good for sensitive skin. You can control how much of the product you use which is great. The tube is small and great for travel? 

What's the downside? You have to wait for the results as they aren't as instant as the Caudalie serum. There's something about this product that makes me lean towards Caudalie more. 

So, what one should you get?

If you want serum for dry/dehydrated skin, that's natural and good for sensitive skin with instant results - go for Caudalie - Your skin will drink it up.

If you want a serum for dry/dehydrated skin that's great to travel with, good for all skin types and is clinically proven with Hydraluron.

They're both good product if you're looking for a serum for dry/dehydrated skin - in terms of the packaging and actual texture of the product is personal choice really. I prefer the Caudalie SOS Serum overall, but that doesn't mean to say that the Hydraluron isn't great - you need to give it a bit of time to work its magic. 

What one do you prefer?
