I’ve been hearing a lot of good feedback about Vichy but only knew about it too late. This brand is no longer available in Malaysia since March 2012 for reasons that we have no idea of. So I asked my sister to get it from UK.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light Pot, 50ml (Â£16.00). Not that cheap really.
It claims that…
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light gives, for the first time, Vichy Thermal Spa Water and a micro-encapsulated delivery system of Active Hyaluronine improve the diffusion of moisture into the surface of the epidermis.
The skin feels replenished with water, as if continuously hydrated by misting micro-sprays.The skin is intensely hydrated feeling soothed. It feels supple, refreshed and velvety soft, free of sensation of tightness all day long.The skin is more resilient, with increased suppleness and radiance.It’s effectiveness is proven on 100 women under dermatological control.
The light cream is refreshing and melts into the skin. Non-greasy and non-stick with no sensation of thickness. The Aqualia Thermal range helps fortify and soothe the skin giving it 24 hour hydrating care for use on dehydrated and sensitive skin. Intensely hydrated, the skin feels soother, refreshed and free from sensations of tightness.
Just like using sleeping mask except it doesn’t leave a layer on the face. I only apply this at night either on its own or after toner as I don’t have such luxury of time to apply it in the morning because it doesn’t absorb immediately. Once it melted into the skin, you can feel the softness and suppleness. Great to replenish the moisture loss being in the air-conditioning office during the day and at night. True to its claim. I also wake up with hydrated skin, no oiliness.
As for the smell, it’s not overpowering instead the smell is quite soothing and light.
There’s another version of this, Vichy Aqualia Rich Pot, I think would be too rich for me.
Conclusion, definitely a good product just too bad why it’s no longer being sold in Malaysia, there’s many users here in this part of the world. Why?
Also got another product from Vichy and will review it soon.
