Vichy Normaderm Night Anti-imperfection Rejuvenating Care

Hi gorgies 😀
Festival make up *rather over make up :P* gets us really thinking after we wipe it off. :-/  The blemishes, the acne scars, the pigmented patches, the dark circles look even more in your face and prominent after wiping off the flawless concealers and highlighters and its that which finally got me into thinking that I have got to invest less in makeup, more on skincare! ‘cause practically speaking, if you have awful skin, no amount of makeup can eventually make you look glowing and radiant! I badly needed a night cream after going through mynatures co. one *I got bored of it and mom took it :P* , so read up on a few things and zeroed in onto the so hyped vichy normaderm range 😀 This range has 2 night creams. One is Vichy Normaderm Nuit Anti- Imperfection Care that is already reviewed on ETM, mine is the other.

What Vichy says:

From the age of 25, skin needs skin care that both treats its imperfections and preserves its youth. At night, in the absence of external environmental aggressions and disturbances, skin cells are more receptive to active ingredients. It is the optimal moment to purify and rejuvenate skin. Vichy Normaderm has the goodness of LHA and Glycolic acid that have a ‘peeling effect’ on skin and Vitamin C that regenerates skin.  Night after night skin renewal is boosted. Skin becomes purified and visibly rejuvenated. Imperfections are reduced, pores tighten, skin texture is refined. Skin is visibly smoother, more luminous and more supple. Its youth is preserved. Light skin texture. Fast penetrating and fresh. Suitable for sensitive skin. Long-lasting hydration.

Product Claims:

  • Reduces imperfections.
  • Smooths skin.
  • Restores luminosity.

My take:

The cream comes in a cute green tube packaging with a nozzle mouth for easy and non-messy dispensing of the product. 🙂 The product never accumulates around the mouth of the cap and the cute tube also makes it easy to carry.
The product itself is a pale green in color which looks almost white and is oh-so light, fresh and non-greasy. 😀 It has a fresh cucumbery cool feel to it and as soon as you apply this on your face both your skin and senses are calmed a little runny, absorbed by the skin within moments and gives a light fresh matte finish ! It has the typical fresh fragrance of the entire normaderm range which I love!

As for the effective part, does it work?

Oh yes it does 😀 I picked this up after going through various night creams and their compositions because I wanted something with either glycolic acid or lactic acid as a key ingredient.

*trivia- these skin friendly acids eat up dead cells and debris gently and reveals a fresher,younger skin* This cream suited my needs to the T as it had both vitamin C *Another natural antioxidant for skin* and glycolic acid
The first time I used this and went to sleep, I woke up the next morning with zero grease on face, fresh and supple skin like I had just applied it. 😀 Needless to say I luurrvvv it. 😀
Ohh and 1 night I had a pimple just coming on and applied this before bed. Next morning the pimple was almost gone. 😀
It, however is better for combination-oily beauties and not really for dry skins as it does not dry out skin but neither does it hydrate it. :-/

The pros:

  • Cute, travel friendly packaging with nozzle mouth for easy dispensing of the cream 🙂
  • Very light, watery, fresh texture which gets absorbed instantaneously in the skin and leaves behind a supple fresh feel <3
  • Helps to control oil 🙂
  • Does not dry out or stretch the skin.
  • Helps in combating pimples and left behind marks <3
  • Has skin friendly ingredients and chemicals which are hard to come by in other night creams in such a perfect combination. ^_^
  • The glycolic acid eats up the dead and dull skin, revealing glowing effects which are noticeable!
  • Fresh, green fragrance like cut grass on a spring day.  🙂

The cons:

  • None really except for the rapid escalation of price. :-/ Few months ago it was 750, now its 900 O-o..like WTH!!!

Do I recommend?

Ohh absolutely 😀 I admit the price is steep for a miserly 30ml but then only a teeny bit is required for the entire face and neck which makes it last for ages! I bought mine 2 months back and have hardly gone through 1/3rd of the tube! It brightens my complexion, controls oil and pimples and definitely makes my face look soft and supple . I am going to repurchase for sure which is a difficult feat for me as those of you who know me understand well. 😀

That’s it for today pretties. 🙂 Hope the review was of use.

ETM Edit* If you are going to repurchase this then it must be really really effective. Sadly the weather here has totally messed up my skin which is so dry right now that even the deserts of Sahara would be put to shame. 🙁 Looking for a really hydrating cream for my skin but afraid that it might break me out. :X Shall give this a try during the summer months. Nice and detailed review. 🙂
