Happy New Year people¬†ūüôā Its been a great 2014 for me and I hope the same trend continues this year as well¬†smiley¬†Also hope¬†that this year brings you guys all the work and money you‚Äôve been wishing for¬†smiley

So, I have been wondering for a few days about¬†what should be my first post for 2015. And all through this thinking, one idea that kept coming back to my mind was¬†Vichy. After a highly inspiring session with¬†Dr. Jaishree Sharad¬†at the¬†Vichy Blogger‚Äôs Meet¬†last month, I was so kicked that I bought myself some really cool products from this brand. It seemed like a nice year-end gift to myself that would also give me the opportunity to introduce myself to such a highly reputed brand that works on skincare, bodycare, makeup and anti-ageing products. The best thing I decided was to pick up products from each range and so I got¬†Bi White MED¬†for pigmentation,¬†LiftActiv¬†for Anti-Ageing,¬†Normaderm¬†for Anti Acne and imperfections,¬†Capital Soleil¬†for Sun protection and¬†Aqualia Thermal¬†for Hydration. I have been using these products for about two weeks¬†now and would love to share my thoughts about them with you all. So here they are. Read on…

  1. VICHY Aqualia Thermal: This is by far one of the best creams I have ever used. Contained in a small blue tinted glass jar with a shiny silver cap,¬†It‚Äôs¬†is a white colored cream that¬†is very light on the skin and absorbs¬†really well. It¬†lives up to its promise of providing hydration and keeps my skin well plumped and moisturized to say the least.¬†Its not at all greasy.¬†A little hard on fragrance, yes, but I love the smell. Full marks to packaging as well. I‚Äôm asboloutely in love with this one. Priced at INR1,350/- for 50ml, its a ‚Äėmust buy‚Äô.¬†Will I repurchase it again? You bet!

  1. VICHY Capital Soleil: This sunscreen comes in a yellow colored tube and has a thickish¬†cream consistency. It is¬†SPF 50 and offers both UVA and UVB protection.¬†The best thing about this sunscreen is that it blends well into the skin¬†and does not leave a white cast, which most¬†of other sunscreens do. Instead it provides a matte effect on blending which is what I always seek in a sunscreen.¬†I have a normal skin with oily patches and this sunscreen works perfectly well for me. You can also wear this under your makeup. And yes, it has a bit of a fragrance which I‚Äôm oaky with. End of the day, I‚Äôm really happy to have found a sunscreen that actually works. Priced at INR1,090/- for 50ml,¬†its a ‚Äėmust buy‚Äô. I would definitely buy this product again and will highly recommend it to my friends.

  1. VICHY LiftActiv: This is an anti-ageing formula and comes in the form of a translucent viscous serum. With a gel-like consistency, it gets absorbed quickly and is really light and non-greasy.  It has a dropper dispenser which I quite like because it dispenses small quantity of the gel and does not waste it.The one thing that you cant miss about this product is the instant lift/boost it gives to the skin. Once applied, your face will immediately feel taut and firm and its such a great feeling. I’m in my early 30s and even though I dont have any visible wrinkles, I believe its time for me to start using anti-ageing creams & serums and this one seems quite promising. I have been using it for two weeks now, I apply it usually mornings and nights and it has clearly made my skin more plumper and my pores look smaller. It has a light fragrance which is quite alright. Priced at INR2,650/ for 30ml, it does sound a bit steep, but its definitely worth it! I would surely repurchase this and highly recommend it.

  1. VICHY Normaderm: This is a cleanser/facewash that comes in a green tube packaging. ¬†Its a transparent gel with a hint of green.¬†Initially when I used it, my skin broke out a bit. But on¬†constantly using it for about two weeks¬†now, I dont get anymore breakouts plus this facewash does not make my skin feel dry in the least. This product smells great. Its a combination of green, clean and fresh fragrance which I absoloutely love. Its quite gentle and cleans really well. This product claims to fight against acne but since I dont really have acne issues, I guess I cant comment much about it. Priced at INR490/- for 100ml its a pretty good facewash and a ‚Äėmust try‚Äô.

  1. VICHY Bi White MED: Sorry guys, but you will have to wait for the review of this one. I have given this cream¬†to a friend who has spots on his face and I want to see how well this product works. So stay tuned ūüôā
