Alright lets talk skin and body care! Theres nothing I love more than a product that REALLY does its job and makes me feel pampered. I’ve never tried Vichy face or bath products before so I was super excited to receive this box of goodies and give them a go.
The Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 Supreme is basically a youth power serum for boosted cell renewal. I’m in my late 20’s now so its never too early to start taking care of my skin with anti-wrinkle creams and serums. I really liked this Liftactiv serum because the formula is super lightweight and didn’t make my face feel heavy or oily at all. Its definitely not greasy, sticky, or super shiny. I use it at night-time on cleansed skin before I go to bed by squeezing 3-4 drops and applying it all over my face and neck. In the morning my face looks noticeably illuminated and plumped. I’ve definitely seen the lines in my forehead diminish. I would recommend this serum for any skin type.
The formula features:
- 10% Rhamnose, a natural sugar sourced from the silver birch tree known for its strong regeneration properties, clinically-proven to act on skin rejuvenation and fight the signs of aging
- New Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid: smaller in size and weight than traditional hyaluronic acid, it is able to transport 2X more Rhamnose into skin for immediate plumping and hydrating action. Pores are visibly reduced and skin feels lifted, without irritation to even the most sensitive skin.
The Ideal Body Spa Shower Gel-Oil is actually a really cool in shower body cleanser without soap. It leaves your skin feeling super soft and silky. The gel-oil is cleanser enriched with their signature Vichy thermal spa water with 15 mineral active ingredients and naturals oils. I would highly recommend this for sensitive skin because it has NO parabens and its hypoallergenic. I also find this great for shaving it helps prevent any razor burns. All you gotta do is pour the gel into the palm of your hand or loofah, lather and apply all over body (but don’t use it on your face).
The Ideal Body Spa Shower Gel-Cream is really similar to the oil where it acts as an in-shower Gel-Cream body cleanser without soap. It’s also highly recommended for sensitive skin because it has no parabens and is hypoallergenic. The only thing that is different is that the cream contains shea butter and white clay which gives you that extra bit of silky smoothness.
So it really depends on your personal preference on which formula you like better. Personally i really liked the way the cream based shower cleanser felt so I used that one more and on the days where I felt that my skin was super dry and needed that extra bit of tlc, then i used the oil based cleanser.
I’ve also been adding the Vichy Ideal Soleil Double Usage After-Sun Care into my shower routine. You can actually use this product on both wet and dry skin. I don’t really get outside much especially because of the horrible weather we have been having so instead i’ve been using this in the shower on the few hot sunny days. Its great for hydrating and prepping your skin for a radiant tan. It contains a blend of shea oil and apricot kernel oil, coriander seeds, blackcurrant seeds and Viper’s Bugloss rich in essential fatty acids, and lots of Vitamin E. This product is also great for people like me who have sensitive skin (no parabens, hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, non-comedogenic and tested under dermatological control).
