I have been trying out some Vichy skincare products for the last 4 weeks. Today, I'm excited to finally share with you my thoughts on the serum, face cream, and eye balm from the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Line.
Let's get started!
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Power Serum
Average Price: $42
At first I was concerned that this would be too heavy for the skin, especially with the hot weather. To my surprise, this is actually really light weight and absorbs in seconds. It feels really nice and luxurious. It's very hydrating but not oily at all. Sometimes I prefer to use this on its own because it is moisturizing enough (or because I'm lazy) and it sits well under makeup. I don't know if this keeps my face hydrated for 48 hrs, since I wash my face every day. When I use it at night, my face will still feel moisturized the next morning. I highly recommend this product!
Average Price: $39.95
I have mixed feeling about this. First, I don't think it is actually "light". My skin is dry to normal but it feels a little heavy for me in the morning. I'm not sure if it's because of the hot weather but I like it more for night time use. Second, you really only need a little or else it will leave the skin a little oily. It is only "light" when I use a little and massage it thoroughly into my skin. I like how there's no strong perfume scent but when I first got it, the scent and texture reminds me a little like elmer's glue? (Maybe it's just me) Other than that, the cream feels really nice on the skin, and if you massage it in it doesn't leave the sticky feeling on the face and my skin feels very moisturized.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Awakening Eye Balm
Average Price: $36
I love the product but not the packaging. I don't usually use an eye cream. I was so excited to receive this eye cream because the price is not too bad compared to other brands. The product itself is blue, which is pretty cool. The formula is pretty light weight and easily spreadable around the eye area. I think it's quite cooling, which wakes me up in the morning! It is also moisturizing, which is really obvious when I apply makeup on top of the area I applied this eye cream on. About the packaging, I don't understand why the container is plastic, it seems a bit cheap. Also the pump is not too effective. Sometimes it doesn't pump out the product at all, or way too much product comes out. Other than that, I really recommend this eye cream!
Overall, I enjoyed all three products, but for my skin, I would prefer to use the cream during colder months. I also appreciate that these products are suitable for sensitive skin. I am happy to report that I did not break out or have any allergic reaction from using these products. I wish to try out more products from Vichy's skincare line! #VichyWorksForMe
