I have tried quite a few products from French skincare experts Vichy over the years and I am always impressed by their quality. I especially loved the Double Glow Peel Mask and Purete Thermale Range because my number one skin concern is dull, lacklustre skin and they both helped my skin look fresh and achieve that natural healthy glow. So when I heard about this new Idéalia range which is formulated to boost radiance I was so excited to put it to the test, and this duo came through my door at just the right time to combat the dulling effects of Winter on my skin.
So this serum has a lovely lightweight consistency (it contains regenerating Vichy Thermal Spa Water) and I have been enjoying using it in the morning as the first step in my skincare regime. It glides on my skin and instantly gives is a smooth, soft feel. Its emulsified texture leaves a light, non-greasy, protective film on the skin’s surface and protects the complexion from the microparticles that it collects throughout the day.
- Radiance is restored and dullness reduced
- Skin texture appears smoother
- Vichy Mineralising Thermal Water strengthens the skin against aggressors
- Tested on sensitive skin under dermatological control
This Idéalia range is formulated to help repair and restore your complexion so it looks healthy and has that fresh glow. I am all about trying to achieve that glow! It is safe to say that Vichy has packed both products full of incredible ingredients that help protect against environmental aggressors, stimulates cellular repair and gently exfoliates the skin’s surface.
Over the past 3 months, this has become an integral part of my evening skincare regime, I use it after cleansing by applying it with a cotton pad, (avoiding the eye contour) I just sweep it across my skin and it gently exfoliates the skin whilst the active ingredients illuminate skin from within.
If you have tried other glycolic acids but found them too much for your sensitive skin then I highly recommend trying this Vichy one as it is very gentle and a little product goes a long way. This formula has a combination of 4% glycolic acid and 5% hepes to provide an exfoliating effect whilst boosting cell turnover.
- Formulated with blueberry polyphenols, fermented black tea extract & Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water
- Wake up to the look of naturally glowing skin
- Evens skin tone and smoothes fine lines
- Evens complexion
- Awakens dull skin to reveal a natural glow
I think this has really helped even out my skin and give it that refreshed healthy glow. My skin also feels smoother and softer since using both products and I’ve found my makeup also sits better, which is a real bonus.
I’ve been very impressed with both products but out of the two (if I was forced to only repurchase one) I don’t think I could be without the Vichy Idéalia Peeling – Night Peeling Care. It is unlike any other product I am using at the moment and I know how important it is to use glycolic acid to help renew and rejuvenate skin. I think I have found the right fit for me.
Have you tried either of these products from the new Vichy Idéalia range or do you have any recommendations for gentle glycolic acid toners?
