If you’ve been keeping up with my posts – and I hope you have – you’ll know that I’ve been trialling some products from the Vichy Normaderm range. If you missed it you can read the post here.
I’ve been trying out the 3 step process day and night for 7 days using the Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel, Purifying Pore-tightening Lotion and Global Anti-imperfection Hydrating Care each morning and using the same cleanse and tone products at night but substituting the Night Detox Anti-imperfection Clarifying Care for the Global at night. I haven’t tried the 3 in 1 cleanser + scrub + mask yet but when I do you’ll be the first to know.
So one week on – how is my skin doing? Well I’m pretty pleased over all. To be fair, I don’t have blemish prone skin so I can’t really say how well the spot clearing elements of the products work but as a cleanse tone and moisturise regime I’m pretty impressed. Here’s what I thought of the individual products.
This is a really practical pump dispenser that you can keep by the bathroom sink for all the family to use – if you don’t mind sharing your precious Vichy with them. It makes your skin feel really clean without feeling dry or tight.
Purifying Pore-tightening Lotion
In general I’d stopped using toner, which is what this is essentially, but I don’t know why. Using this lotion was almost like double cleansing and I was reminded that even after using a super purifying gel you can still see some dirt on the cotton wool pad when you use a toner. It also tightened up pores but again without making my skin feel tight.
Global Anti-imperfection Hydrating Care
This is a lovely moisturising lotion with no parabens and was perfectly pleasant to use. I do prefer to use a moisturiser with an SPF and also some firming action but this wasn’t the purpose of this product which in the main is to address imperfections.
Night Detox Anti-imperfection Clarifying Care
This is the newest product in the range. It certainly hydrated my skin overnight and helped me to avoid the pillow lines that I tend to get when I don’t use a night cream. I was a little surprised to feel that my skin was slightly greasy to the touch when I woke but of course this was soon sorted when I used the Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel and started the process all over again.
A great range from Vichy.
