Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep
Vichy is a french skincare brand that is raved about consistently in the beauty community. I have tried a couple of their products including the normaderm micellar solution and the thermal water spray both of which I loved at the time; so when I received the *Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep Recovery Night Gel Balm (£26.50, 50ml) I was excited to give it a go and not just because the packaging is so cute. 

The Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep is a gel consistency night moisturiser that contains LHA, Vitamin B3, Caffeine and hyaluronic acid which we all know is amazing for hydrating and plumping the skin. A good nights sleep is important as the skin repairs itself as you sleep so your skin needs to function at optimum levels during the night which may not happen if you have poor sleep quality. The Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep is the first night skincare product clinically proven to stimulate the skin's repair mechanisms as you sleep so even if you have only had a few hours sleep, your skin will still have gone through it's mechanisms needed to repair and regenerate itself which is something I've never come across in any skincare I've used and it's a very interesting concept!  

The product itself is light pink in colour and it has a very smooth gel like consistency that feels lightweight on the skin but it really smoothes over the skin and packs in a tonne of moisture. The moisturiser feels nourishing and comforting to use and it leaves the skin looking hydrated and plumped. I've been using it on and off as part of my evening skincare routine and it does really help reduce the look of dull and tired skin. It has a light sweet floral scent that not everyone will like but it personally doesn't irritate my skin. 

I think it's difficult to tell if the moisturiser itself is contributing to a less tired, dull and lacklustre complexion or if it actually does completely live up to those amazing claims but overall, I do see an improvement in my skin. My skin looks much more radiant, awake and more plumped when I use this moisturiser as part of my evening skincare routine. It doesn't irritate my skin although I don't put it around my eyes anyway which is where my skin is most sensitive. A little goes a long way so I think this one tub will last a while. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5. 


Have you tried any products from Vichy?

  3. Sounds like lovely stuff, and I don't think Vichy have ever let me down. You can always rely on French pharmacy brands to be good to your skin, I find :)

  13. I've been trying this out and I really like it. My skin pretty much always looks dull no matter how much sleep I get but this has really been helping it look a little glowy for once. I've tried several Vichy products recently and I really like them x
