Vichy Normaderm Purifying pore- tightening lotion Review-
Toners play a pivotal role in our Skicare Regime ( if you have Oily-Acne Prone Skin , you would certainely agree ) . For my problematic skin I try to use toners / astringents regularly . I was recommended this product by a friend who calls it a Holy-Grail Product and she has been re purchasing this for years now . On her recommendation , I purchased this around June and have finished my bottle now , so sharing my thoughts in the review today..
What Vichy Says-
An association of peeling effect ingredients and a skin soothing agent in a purifying lotion. Results- from the 1stapplication, leaves skin feeling mattified and helps unclog/ tighten pores.
Price : Rs. 1150 for 200 ml.
My take on the Vichy Normaderm Purifying pore-tightening lotion-
Vichy Normaderm Purifying Pore-tightening lotion comes in a light green plastic bottle with a white flip-top cap which shuts tight . The cap has a small hole to dispense the lotion . The translucent bottle allows one to easily see the amount of product left inside . The packaging is simple, convenient to use and travel friendly.
The lotion/toner is a clear liquid formula and has a sweet , mild fragrance which is common to the Normaderm range .
To use it, I pour a little amount of this toner/lotion on a damp cotton round . It gives a slight tingling sensation for a few seconds due to presence of peeling agents , but nothing bothersome . I like the way it deep cleans my skin and removes any dirt or impurities left on the skin after cleansing . My skin feels soft , taut and slightly mattified after using this ( with no residue / greasy film ). However ,it does not control oil or shine well , as my skin does get shiny/oily after an hour of using this .
I have used this toner during summers and the bottle lasted for about 3 months when used twice a day . While I was using this , I have noticed my skin was less congested , with fewer whiteheads . Also , the occasional breakouts on my skin did settle/heal faster than usual .
I have visible enlarged pores around my nose and cheeks but it has not done anything to reduce their appearance . But considering the overall performance of this lotion/toner ,I find this to be a very good option for combination oily, acne-prone skin . I would definitely recommend and repurchase another bottle of this .

Do I recommend the Vichy Normaderm Purifying pore- tightening lotion?
Vichy Normaderm Purifying Pore-tightening lotion is a good toner for Oily-Combination Skin . It easily deep-cleans my skin and removes any impurities left after cleansing . My skin feels soft and slightly tight but not uncomfortable each time I use this . It works well by controlling whiteheads and helps in reducing the size of breakouts . I could not notice any significant change in the appearance of my enlarged pores even after using this regularly. However , it did not harm /cause any skin irritation on my extremely sensitive skin so I would certainly repurchase another bottle of this .
