Vichy Essentielles Review.
Well over a month ago I saw a post on Sophie's blog, asking if anyone wanted to try out the Vichy stuff she had been sent. I put myself forward, and a few days later the goodies were in my possession.
I'll admit I was a little sceptical about using them properly until I knew I wasn't going to react to them, if you are not aware, a few people have had some extreme reactions to the products, and because Sophie has sensitive skin she decided not to risk it.
So, what did I think?
Body Cream Milk for Dry Skin : This, like the other products has a lovely rose scent which I think is lovely, and it is quite subtle. It isn't too thick and soaked in pretty well without leaving a greasy feeling on the skin, My skin felt nourished and well moisturised after use.
Facial Cleanser for All Skin Types I like this, smells delicious and lathered up really nice me (that always makes me feel like I am really cleaning my face) It's quite thick and rich and after rinsing it off my skin felt really soft and fresh. I didn't see any amazing changes to my skin, but it was pleasant to use and made my skin feel very clean.
Facial Emulsion for Normal to Combination Skin I use this after cleansing, It's not overly thick in consistency and it soaks in nicely and moisturises my skin well leaving it feeling soft. The scent, once again, is subtle but really nice and not over powering.
Overall I think this is a nice range, but I wasn't wowed by anything in particular. They are nice to use but I don't feel they helped improve my skin, but then again I don't know if anything will!
