GIVEAWAY : Vichy Idealia Skincare Line [Closes Feb 29, 2016]


Vichy introduces their new Idéalia Day Care, which corrects the first signs of aging by improving skin radiance and reducing the look of fine lines and visible pores. The leading ingredient? Kombucha, a multi-active tea concentrate, which has been used for centuries thanks to its tonifying and anti-oxidation properties.

Key Ingredients :
* Kombucha : obtained from Ceylon black tea, which naturally contains a unique combination of AHA + Vitamins + Probiotics + Polyphenols.
* Vitamin E : natural anti-oxidant playing a key role in the reducing signs of aging.
* Adenosine : stimulates the renewal of the epidermis and boosts the anti-wrinkle activity of Kombucha.
* LHA : activates micro-exfoliation and promotes the absorption of Kombucha and Adenosine.
* Mineralizing Thermal Water : soothing and fortifying.

Note : There are two versions : Normal to Combination (which I’ve been using) and Normal to Dry.


Thoughts :
* Nice moisturizer. Gives the skin a nice, healthy glow and a vibrant, iridescent sheen.
* Fine lines are nourished/moisturized and appear less visible.
* Like that the packaging has a mirror on the top of the lid, so I can apply this anywhere I am!
* The scent is slightly heavier than I’m used to.


Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep
I have previously reviewed this product in another post. Please read more about it HERE!


Vichy Idealia Life Serum
This product was also previously reviewed, which you can read more about HERE!

If I were to sum up my overall thoughts, at first glance, they all seem pretty similar in terms of colour/texture/scent. I think the key differences would be the ingredients used in each, which have long term effects for the skin over time. I like the Vichy Idealia Life Serum the best out of the three. The texture was nice, lightweight, vibrant and I liked the packaging best. The beauty jars are fine, but I guess my concern is double dipping. Even though I do wash my hands regularly, I wouldn’t want to be contaminating the product(s) with my fingers.

So which is your fave? Let’s have you be the judge of the Vichy Idealia line. If you’re interested in trying all three products, I’m holding a GIVEAWAY listed below!!
