Vichy has recently released its eye catching and beautifully packaged Idealia range that definitely stands out in drugstores. This range is meant to restore and regenerate overstressed and overexposed skin. The pink and silver reflective packaging really draws attention. They look so beautiful that I felt I had to try them out.
Vichy Idealia Life Serum is meant to brighten and restore radiance to your complexion. It comes in a fantastic pump dispenser that gives you just the right amount for a whole face. When swatched it is mostly white with a subtle reflective pink-gold duochrome sheen, similar to MAC Rebel Lustre Drops. On the skin I find it hardly moisturises however and that my rough patches are no different (may be even worse). It is quite highly fragranced so I would not recommend this on sensitive skin. Overall I have not seen any improvement in the quality of my skin using this so I will sadly not repurchase.
Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep Recovery Night Gel-Balm is a night treatment meant to repair and regenerate dull skin overnight by improving microcirculation and barrier function of the skin. It comes in a pot (unhygienic!) although with a delightful mirror at the top of the lid (genius!). I find in the mornings that my skin does look brighter but I'm not sure whether that's because I've had some rest or because of this product. I tend to sleep like a log and I do try to get a good 8 hours' sleep when possible. Again like the life serum above, it is fragranced and does not really help with my skin's texture and perhaps I would not repurchase.
I really wanted to love these but unfortunately as they don't seem to do much for me I cannot recommend them.
Have you tried this Vichy Idealia Range?
