Guerlain 'SOS' Serum
I'm not sure why this phenomenal product flies beneath the radar, but it shouldn't! It is excellent at reducing, and in some cases, eliminating redness in the complexion caused by sensitivity and inflammation. I have dry, mature skin, with mild rosacea that I manage to keep well-controlled. I do flush, though, in reaction to just about everything. Since using SOS Serum, my skin has looked much more calm and the areas of redness have been significantly reduced. Like one of the other reviewers, I have tried just about everything throughout the years including some of the anti-redness products manufactured by major cosmeceutical companies. None of those have worked as fast or as efficiently as this wonderful serum by Guerlain.
As with any anti-redness product, consistency is key. The longer and more consistently you use this product, the greater will be your benefit. When I first tried the generous sample I was given, I thought it was nice but not particularly special. That changed dramatically as the week progressed. My skin became accustomed to it and much more responsive to my twice daily application. By the end of the week, I noticed a dramatic improvement and promptly went to my Guerlain counter to buy a bottle. I wouldn't be without it now.
If your redness is caused by broken capillaries or surface blood vessels, this product is not going to eliminate those. To do that, you need to see a dermatologist. If; however, your redness is caused by flushing or sensitivity, this product will calm your skin and reduce the redness significantly. SOS Serum is definitely an unsung hero.
I have tried a LOT of products in my life and this one really works. It's amazing how it soothes my sensitive skin and controls oil as well. I've just started to learn about Guerlain products and my experience so far (Orchidee Masque, SOS Serum, Eye Shadows, Nail Polish) is that they really work and the results are immediate. There isn't a guessing game involved where you think it *might* be working...IT DOES and you know it. I am the type of person that doesn't waste money on a lot of products that "sort of" work. I look for the best and spend on that item that I know will work time and time again.
I love this product. I have used this product for 2 years,very light and gently< but very pricely.
This really does live up to it name. I have sensitive skin, and very oily skin. I use this serum before I put the moiturizer on, and it is how amzing it feel. I am completely, and utterly in love with this serum. I have tried and tried alot different product for my skin, but nothing's working for my face. No one told me know of this product, I just accidently discover this serum on my own, and since then I only use this serum.
