Review: Vichy Skincare

As always, my quest for perfect skincare continues!

A few weeks ago (probably more than 2 months now!) I bought a few products from Vichy.

When I bought them there was an offer on, when you bought the new Normaderm day moisturiser you got the full sized cleansing gel for free! It was worth £12 if I remember rightly so this was quite a bargain!

To make up the set I decided to buy the Normaderm night cream too, as I’m really picky about having matching day and night creams, is anyone else like this?!

First up is the Normaderm Hydrating care Moisturiser.

I should probably mention at this point that Vichy’s products are paraben free and non-comodogenic, which as we all know is very promising and it’s stamped all over the packaging!

They claim:

Our complete care for imperfection-prone skin.

Transforms 6 imperfection concerns.

-Oily Skin
-Uneven Complexion

To me this sounds like a lot of promises for a product that I hadn’t heard of before I saw it on the shelf.

However I’m a sucker for lists and simple packaging so obviously my inner demon wanted it!

I would like no blemishes, no pores, no shine, marks or uneven complexion and would definitely like the banish my oily skin!

The moisturiser is white and quite thin in consistency, I absolutely LOVE it.

I truly believe that my skin has improved from using this, and whilst I’ve had a few spots I think this is due to the better weather causing my skin to excrete oil at an even higher rate than usual.

I’m hoping with such a good improvement over a small space of time I’m hoping that with time my pores will shrink a little and my skin will appear more even.

 I bought the Normaderm night cream because I like a matching set of skincare and had to buy the night cream as well as the day one.

However I was mildly surprised to find that I also love this product too!

Surprising only because I hadn’t intended to buy it, not because I thought it would be rubbish.

This product feels like a thicker version of the day moisturiser and when on the skin feels like a primer would.

I loved the fell of it as it was unexpected, it felt like it mattified my skin and made it feel like velvet!

I have definitely seen an improvement in my skin tone after using these two products combined, and am interested in trying out their Normaderm Total Mat Gel as it claims to control shine under make up all day which would be amazing right now!

I haven’t used the cleanser yet as I also bought Liz Earle at the same time…..but I will be trialling it soon when the pump finishes.

Have you tried anything from Vichy?
