Tuesday evening I was lucky enough to be invited to the Vichy press launch that was hosted at Rook + Raven. On arrival I was greeted by a lovely member of the Vichy staff & met up with Lea from SincerelyShug & Sarah from SRFTaylor. We got a walk through of all the products that Vichy has to offer, I’m already a big fan of their Normaderm range as this helped clear all my acne up in the past.
After having our little tour of all the products we walked around & tested quite a few out. I must say my hand felt amazing at the end of the night.
We got speaking to Dr Anjali Mahto who is Vichy’s Dermatologist on their expert panel. She was telling us about the benefits of starting a good anti-aging skincare routine in your early 20’s. She spoke about the LiftActiv range, this range is targeted at people with deep wrinkles & loss of firmness but I personally think someone my age could benefit from at least two the of products DR Anjali Mahto told us about. The first product she recommended us to try was the Serum 10 for eyes & lashes, this serum is meant to illuminate & lift the eyes. You can also you this on your eyelashes to help strength them. The other product see recommended was Advanced Filler night cream; this has a high amount of retinol which is great to help smooth wrinkles. Serum 10 cost £24.50 for 15ml & Advanced Filler cost £31 for 30ml.
Along with all the great products Vichy already has to offer they have launched a new product to their Idealia line. The idealia line already gets rave reviews especially for the Life Serum. They have launched their Skin Sleep night gel balm. This is a gel balm instead of a cream; it’s designed to give you the richness of a balm but with the freshness of a gel. So what is this Skin Sleep you ask, Skin Sleep is a night cream designed to give your skin the look of having a full night’s sleep. So if you suffer with sleep or someone that works nights this will be great for you. This was tested on 50 new mums, night nurses & cabin crew, they all noticed a difference in their skin & how much smoother its felt with less signs of fatigue. Now I’m not saying you can go out on the town then pop some of this on & look like you’ve had a full 8 hours sleep, this is more designed to work while you sleep even if you only get a few hours with your busy life. Skin Sleep cost £26.50 for 50ml
After a great evening of trying new products we popped to get coloured matched for Vichy’s well known foundation DermaBlend. Vichy has brought out three new shades for the DermaBlend range, we now have Porcelain which is the lightest shade in the range & we also have Coffee & Espresso which are the two darkest shades on the range. This is great that Vichy has brought out three new shades as this range now caters to more skin colours. I’ve always been a fan of the foundation; it’s a great high coverage foundation that’s very build able. I used this a lot when I suffered from acne. DermaBlend ranges costs from £15 to £29.50.
Before we left the event I was lucky enough to pop to Vichy’s little pop up pharmacy where they had all the products for us to pick from. I was allowed to pick two products I wanted to try out as well as take home the Idealia Skin Sleep night cream & the perfect shade of the DermaBlend foundation. With the help from one of the lovely Vichy staff members I picked the LiftActiv Serum 10 & the Idealia Smoothing & Illuminating day cream.
I will be testing all the product’s I was lucky enough to take home & will do a full review on everything.
I would like to say thank you to Vichy for having me at their press event.
