New Vichy Idéalia Skincare

NEW Vichy Idealia Skincare

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.

New Vichy Serum

Vichy Idéalia Radiance Boosting Serum

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
  • Hypoallergenic

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.

NEW Vichy Radiance Peeling Solution

Vichy Idéalia Peeling – Night Peeling Care

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?

Aldi Lacura Vitacell Anti Ageing Skincare

We all know how popular the Aldi Caviar skincare range (which won Best Own-Brand Range of the Year at the 2016 Beauty Awards) is with skincare fans of all budgets, well it seems Aldi has pulled it out of the bag again and I wanted to give you lovely people the HEADS UP!

Get excited, Aldi are introducing their latest budget friendly skincare collection, the new Aldi Lacura Vitacell Anti Ageing Skincare which is being released for a limited time only on 9th February when it will be launched into Aldi stores & online as a Specialbuy. So that means once the range has sold out it is gone (as in GONE) so make sure you mark your calendars so you’re not disappointed as they’re expecting demand to be high.

It is not going to hang around long because this is some seriously good skincare! Have you marked your calendar?!

Lacura Vitacell Anti Ageing Skincare*

This is a range that is said to rival even the most premium skincare brands, it has been developed using Complex TCR3 which helps prolong the longevity of cells and promotes cell turnover.

The active ingredients that run through this collection has been extracted from the Ancient Chinese plant root Baicalin which helps protect the DNA during cell divisions, promoting young cells, increases skin firmness and elasticity, improves skin restructuring as well reducing the surface effects of free-radicals and pollutants on the skin. So it is quite the all rounder for your skin. I have been sent 3 products from the mature skin range to test out.

Lacura Vitacell 24hr ceme de luxe Skincare

Aldi will be releasing three products in the Vitacell Collection for mature skin and this will include,

Lacura Vitacell 24HR Creme De Luxe 50ml for £6.99

Which comes in a lovely pot with a spatula so you can scoop the cream out. The cream feels very rich and quite thick but once you start to massage it in to your face and neck it smooths out and feels weightless. So the Baicalin extract works as a Telomerase activator which helps protect the DNA during cell divisions and the Stem Cells from sea plants help improve the structure and elasticity of the skin. This cream delivers a great amount of hydration and gives your skin that healthy, plump rejuvenated glow. So if you’re 40+ and are looking for a product to add to your skincare regime that will not only protect your skin but help the overall appearance then this needs to be top of your list.

Lacura Vitacell Skincare at Aldi

Lacura Vitacell Serum Concentrate 

This contains most of the same active ingredients as the moisturiser and is a cloudy consistency which is very liquid, not as thick as most serums I have used. It feels nice once massaged in and much like this entire range is promotes elasticity and cell regeneration. It also contains hyluronic acid and glutamine amino acid for optimising moisture storage and helping your skin appear more youthful. This serum comes beautifully packaged with a pipet so you can dispense just the right amount of product. I have found that 2 – 3 drops are more than enough for your face and neck.

Lacura Vitacell Eye Cream

This is an eye cream for all skin types and the TCR3 anti ageing complex in this cream helps promote blood circulation and reduce fine lines and those pesky dark circles. It has a lovely rich texture but it isn’t too heavy or greasy. It also contains EYESERIL which help de puff tired looking eyes. This is a great cream for helping hydrate, de puff and revive your delicate eye area.

As I said the packaging is incredible quality and it is what you would expect to see from a much more luxurious brand, Lacura have pulled out all the stops with this Vitacell range. This range is available in Mature and Sensitive variations so fingers crossed there will be a product to suit your needs.

Available in Aldi Stores and online at aldi.co.uk as a Specialbuy on 9th February 2017. Let me know if you get your hands on anything.
