Flawless looking skin
Women’s #1 universal skin aspiration is to have flawless looking skin. The Vichy Idéalia Line is designed to freshen and re-awaken the skin by tapping into its natural radiance for visibly transformed skin, no matter what your age, skin type or ethnicity. Vichy Idéalia Life Serum has been a cult favourite for a while now, but the line now offers two new products, Vichy Idéalia Eyes and Vichy Idéalia BB Cream to the collection.
Vichy Idéalia Life Serum is designed for skin exposed to stress, sun, pollution and an unbalanced diet. I’m sure everyone falls into at least one of those categories? It helps to transform the appearance of skin’s quality, by tightening the pores, adding radiance back into the skin, while evening out skin tone, for a fresher, well rested complexion. It contains 2 active ingredients, LR2412 which will help skin repair itself naturally and improve the ability to protect itself, along with LHA that will help improve the overall appearance of your complexion.
Vichy Idéalia Life Serum comes in a pretty pink glass jar with a pump applicator. It has a lightweight, slightly tinted gold/ pink sheen that helps to illuminate the skin instantly. It has a silky texture that absorbs into the skin quickly leaving it soft and hydrated. Only one pump is needed to cover the entire face and it can either be used on its own, or before your moisturizer and foundation. It has a non-greasy, non-sticky formula that provides a great base for your makeup. It has a very subtle fresh floral fragrance that slowly disappears after a few short minutes.
Vichy Idéalia Life Serum has a somewhat exfoliating effect that helps to even out my skin tone. It adds a gorgeous glow to my face, while filling in my pores, to give the appearance of reduced pores. I love that it gives my skin a protective barrier that helps stop external factors from damaging my skin any further. Even before my moisturizer or foundation, my skin is left feeling and looking fresh and radiant. No really, my skin looked flawless and brighter in a few short weeks. I’ve also been skipping my primer when using this, as it already fills in my pores and acts as an excellent base for my foundation to adhere to. It retails for $59 for 30ml.
Vichy Idéalia Eyes is designed to instantly illuminate and soften the appearance of dark circles. In as little as 4 weeks, it not only helps to reduce the appearance of dark shadows around the eyes, but brightens the skin around the eyes that can make you look fatigue, along with smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. This hybrid product combines both eye care and makeup for brighter, more awake looking eyes in one easy step.
Vichy Idéalia Eyes comes in a squeeze tube with a soft and flexible, rubber tip applicator that helps to easily spread the serum on the eye contour below the eyes. It has a lightweight, slightly pink creamy texture that helps to counteract any dark circles. It absorbs into the skin fairly quickly without any sticky, greasy or residue left behind.
Vichy Idéalia Eyes really does have instant results. The lines around my eyes were softened, not completely gone, because let’s get real, no cream will ever diminish them completely, but they were less noticeable. I don’t suffer from dark circles, but it does give a brightening effect under the eyes, so I can see how this can combat dark shadows. It really does illuminate my under eye area and gives almost an airbrushed finish, even before I apply my foundation. It’s extremely hydrating and thanks to its LHA, it also helps to stimulate cell renewal. It retails for $39.50 for 15ml.
Vichy Idéalia BB Cream is enriched with a unique complex (Kombucha + UV Filter System) and light reflecting pigments that’s designed to target 6 different actions. It helps to Illuminate, hydrate, smooth wrinkles, refine skin texture, reduce the appearance of dark spots and protect with SPF 25. It features Vichy Thermal Spa water that fights irritation, dryness, itching and flaking along with inflammation and discomfort such as acne.
Vichy Idéalia BB Cream has a lightweight, creamy pinkish texture that gives a sheer wash of colour for radiant looking skin, without looking like you have anything on your skin. It can be built up to medium coverage as it’s a cross between a foundation and a tinted moisturizer. It gives a flawless effect to the skin with only a dime size amount. It gives a semi-matte finish that doesn’t look greasy or oily. It applies and spreads easily and evenly and melts into the skin instantly. It’s extremely hydrating and moisturizing for an all-over smoother texture and healthier, radiant, glowing skin that lasts throughout the day, without fading or oxidizing.
Vichy Idéalia BB Cream immediately brightened and smoothed out my complexion. It instantly gave my skin a more evened out, flawless look, without being too heavy or cakey looking. Although not my normal full-coverage foundation look, it did give me the confidence I needed to wear it alone. This also could have something to do with the other 2 Vichy Idéalia products I’ve been using these past 3 to 4 weeks. It’s evened out my skin tone, brightened my skin and gave an all over glow to my complexion. It blends like a dream, keeps my skin extremely moisturized throughout the day and smells amazing. It provides a natural flawless base and a smooth surface for when I do apply foundation over top. It reduces the redness around my nose, conceals dark spots and minor breakouts and helps smooth out fine lines around the eyes. It also did an excellent job at filling in my pores, without the use of a pore filler or primer. It gives an illuminated glow from within, thanks to its light reflecting pigments, without looking shiny or glittery. It retails for $37 for 40ml and comes in two new shades, light and medium.
