2 weeks back, Eileen invited me to join her for the Vichy workshop. It was to introduce the NEW Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care.

At the start of the session, we did this test to find out what type of skin do we have. I have combination/oily skin. And I battle acne. Eww all these gross pimples! ): I have always been on a lookout for good acne fighting products, and good products to clear up some scars left behind..

Research International reported that 3 out of 5 Singaporean women suffer from oily skin imperfections. (I say, no thanks to Singapore’s weather!)
And 4 major problems which comes hand in hand with oily skin are:
1. Acnes/ Pimples
2. Clogge pores/ Blackheads
3. Localised shine
4. Dilated pores

To not only break the vicious cycle of imperfection, and also to restore healthy and beautiful skin, Vichy combined complete skin management with 3 simultaneous actions.
Anti imperfection + Mattifying + Hydration = Cleaner and healthier skin

And just for asian skin, Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care is made!
For the very first time, 3 dermatological peeling active ingredient were integrated in a daily hydrating care to target all the different layers of the epidermis.

The unique combination of the peeling acids is such that,
1. Peeling effect on 100% of epidermis: Each active ingredient has a different penetration length and location in the epidermis.
2.Time-release effect: Glycolic acid stays twice as salicylic acid and lipo-hydroxy acid stays 4 times longer than salicylic acid.
3. More efficient than using salicylic acid alone: Unique in-vitro test shows that all actives together have a better efficacy on cell renewal.

Each of us was given 3 products to try. And they are Anti-Imperfection Deep Cleansing Foaming Cream, Purifying Cleansing Gel and Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care.

After trying the products for 2 weeks, here is my reviews! 🙂

JFoams well and quickly. Not much of a smell.
LDont feel that skin was clean after using it. Felt a layer of something was left behind.

I recommand this for people with normal to dry skin.

 

Purifying Cleansing Gel

JSkin was soooooo clean and fresh after using it.
L Sometimes, I felt abit of tightness on my cheeks, but after a while skin was back to normal.

If you have very oily skin, or after workout, this is for you. 🙂

 

Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care

JLightweight and absorbs quickly. Skin was matte after using. No bumps nor pimples was seen during the 2 weeks, but I would still like to monitor my skin, especially during the time of the month. And you can use this both day and night.
During the day, my skin was not as oily as it was. I skip moisturizer normally as my sunblock is quite oily. But with this, my skin does not feel too loaded, in fact it is so lightweight that I dont feel it on my skin.
At night, this is the BEST thing ever! Not too heavy that makes me look like a oil pan when I wakes. It is just right!
LBlackheads were still there! 

 

Overall, I feel that this range is good for women battling acnes. If you have relatively good skin, or want to keep your acne at bay, the Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care is for you!

I’m awaiting to get my hands on the new Night Anti-Imperfection+Rejuvenating Care.

Have you tried any Vichy products, which do you recommand? 🙂
