Vichy Skincare

I have previously raved about the Eucerin problem skin range and I stand by my views but ever the addict I came across the Vichy range in Boots. I had previously seen the range advertised in a few magazines but wasn't swayed. I would describe the brand as similar to Dermalogica in their approach to skincare & range. I went in to Boots in the midst of a buying coma and picked up the Vichy Normaderm purifying cleansing gel (200ML) £10.50, & Vichy Normaderm Active Anti-Imperfection Concentrate (15ML) £10.21, Vichy Normaderm Micellar Water For Imperfection Prone and Sensitive Skin (200ml) 10.50.

 Vichy Normaderm purifying cleansing gel 
This is a pretty good cleanser. For a start it has a push top which is much more hygienic and economical. The packaging isn't cheap looking, I think it looks slightly high end. It has a slight, fresh smell that goes once it is washed up. This foams up very well, so much so that if I breathe out of my nose bubbles fly out lol..the one thing keeping me going when I have to get up at 6am. Its very effective for getting off make up and grime & its not drying which is a big plus. With this a little goes a long way so it is very economical.

Vichy Normaderm Active Anti-Imperfection Concentrate
This again is green, looks like a cross between a cream and a gel.with a similar smell to the wash. It is 4% salycic acid which is quite rare. I would say this works best for general break outs. It definitely reduces the spot size but doesn't dry it out and make it look even worse like some products do.

Vichy Normaderm Micellar Water For Imperfection Prone and Sensitive Skin
I got this because I was seriously considering buying some Biodermabut was still a bit on the fence. This is similar in that its is basically like a cleansing water. It feels just like water & at first I was pretty sure I'd been taken for a ride but low and behold it takes off everything! I can use this on my sensitive eyes without irritation. Its not drying nor does it leave any sort of residue. I also find it very gentle so would imagine its good for those prone to redness or irritation. The only downside is the smell (its lasts for seconds) its pretty earthy. It doesn't bother me but I know some noses are much more sensitive.

This range is well worth a try. At the mo Boots are doing a 3 for 2 deal so the time is now!!!

I purchased my Vichy from Boots but having done a quick search on t'inernet have seen the range stocked at the following places:
Escentual (Free 1st class delivery on orders over £30)
Chemist Direct (Free delivery over £40)
Amazon UK (Free super saver)

I have used Amazon & Chemist direct before so can vouch for their good service)

Have you tried Vichy? Do you use Vichy?
