Moisturising booster: the Madara SOS hydra repair intensive serum

A good moisturiser is indispensable for me - I always need to have one. I can use it every day, or occasionally on days when my skin feels a bit more tired and dull.
If you are like me and love a one-off product that can deliver a great amounts of hydration and acts instantly, then you may be interested in the Madara moisturising booster, which is also called the SOS hydra repair intensive serum.


Product name: SOS hydra repair intensive serum
For: all skin types
Certified: yes (Ecocert)
Texture: light cream
Price: € 35.00 for 30 ml

My opinion

I really love serums. Concentrated and straight to the point. My skin doesn't tend to be dehydrated, although cold weather can really have a bad impact on its general appearance.
Well, we are approaching the end of the summer (end of September and still feels really nice here in Amsterdam) and over the past few weeks, I have occasionally reached out to the SOS hydra repair serum when my skin needed to feel replumped or recharged after the longs days in the french countryside or on windy Amsterdam beaches (yes, there are beaches!).

The SOS hydra repair serum is a lovely and light pale pink cream, bursting with some top moisturising ingredients such as glycerin, sodium PCA, and hyaluronic acid. It also contains Peony extract which is supposed to be anti-inflammatory and healing. You can also find a blend of wonderful botanical oils including Sea Bucktorn, Nettle and Linseed oils.

The serum feels really velvety on the skin, as the texture is light and really easy to massage evenly. You don't need a lot of product to provide an instant hydration and soothing effect. I like to use it in the evening but I sometimes use 1 or 2  drops in the morning, just to give a nice glow to my skin. Bare in mind that despite the pink color, the serum does not provide any coverage.
I can't seem to find any faults with this serum. It may sound a little bit pricy but you only need to apply a tiny bit eveytime, so, I would say, still decent value for money!

If you are a follower of Mademoiselle Nature, you already know that I have been impressed by some Madara beauty products (see here and here). I really believe Madara is a brand that diserves credit for their result-driven products and without doubt, the SOS repair serum is one of them.

....another winner from Madara!
