Goodies: Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care

Leave a comment

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! 🙂

Anti-Imperfection Deep Cleansing Foaming Cream
Photobucket

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
Photobucket

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? 🙂

/Sorry no photos for now as my laptop couldn’t detect anything and also it HANGS! UGH. (STILL!!!)

Thanks to LiJuan from thesamplestore and Ginvera, I’m sponered 2 items! And guess what? I had tried these 2 products before for some time now! They are:
Ginvera Green Tea Marvel Gel & Ginvera Green Tea Jade Eye Roll Away.

Other than “Zero Blackheads in One Step”, there are 10 more reasons why you have to use Ginvera Green Tea Marvel Gel!

1) Rubs away deep layers of dead skin cells
2) Rubs away blackheads painlessly
3) Contracts pores for refined skin (as dead skin cells have been cleared from pores)
4) Lightens black spots, freckles & scars
5) Removes oil seeds
6) Regulates sebum secretion to prevent pimples
7) Brightens dull complexion
8) Changes dark, rough skin to smooth skin
9) Whitens skin as it gives way to new born skin
10) Enhances quick absorption of skin care products

Seeing is believing!

Use daily on dry face with dry fingers. Squeeze a sufficient amount and dot on forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. Massage about one minute. Rinse off with water / facial cleanser after use.
TADA, soft supple skin is yours now. 🙂

As compared to other brands’ mental roller, Im loving the Ginvera Green Tea Jade Eye Roll Away.
Because Jade roller is more hygienic than other rollers as it has energy to inhibit bacteria. Unique with Jade Roller and blended with Bio energy ingredients such as Bio Energy Fluid, Bio Rice Fermentation Essence, water soluble Olive Oil, Ginseng, various whitening herb extracts, Pomelo and Royal Jelly.

Jade is a precious gem in the East that contains ample of energy. Besides using it as on arnament, it has beauty and health benefits. According to anciet Chinese medical book, “Jade has cooling properties. It can dissolve toxins, nourish skin, improve circulation, eyesight and energize the brain.”
According to modern scientific studies, Jade is enriched with trace minerals that are beneficial to human body. Through massaging using the Jade ball, this energy will be pentrated into the skin and body to nourish and beautify the skin.

I dont know about you girls but Im not a fan of wearing necklaces. Braclets are fine, rings are not as I wore one daily.
😦 Very boring I know. But, while walking on the streets, while seeing those Outfit Of the Day, I always think to myself, “Wow, how come this girl got such strong style.” or whatsnot. Im more of a fuss-free person when dressing up, right my friends?

But, somehow I begin to shop for more necklaces, online and offline. It is really a matter of either I like one at the first sight or it grows on me, or nope sorry I dont like it. I cant put it in words what do I like. Im a very “depends on my mood” person. Hahah.

Jo and Yi Wei started Shophaus  and when I went to check it out, this caught my eyes!
Photobucket
Isnt it prettyyy! I like how it glams up a simple black top.. I like how it brighten up a plain white racerback.. I cannot tell you how much I love it! But the blur me just had to spoilt it by spraying perfume when I was wearing it. 😦 It tarnished badly on me!
Photobucket
Oh well, shall get a brand new one.

I also like Hello Mr Arpel,
Black Shell, Blue, Black, White
Photobucket
Isnt it beautiful? Especially the Black Shell. Oh gosh, I could wear this to bed. I told Jo and Yi Wei that I would like Black Shell, but the white seems good too, right? And the Blue looks so out-of-the-norms, in a good way. Not the boring silver and gold and whatsnot. I told them I would like all colour! Hah! But they said why would I want to have ALL? Oh yayy, these are the necklaces they let me to get a snapshot of!

Photobucket 
Haha! As it is not a bright purple, I dare to wear this out! Instantly glam up my ponytail, and my bun!

 Photobucket

Think the purple flower is boring?
Photobucket
What about The Royal Camelia in Blue? So right to wear it to the beach!

 Photobucket
*Blur-ish but it hide my acne&scars! :X

Or just to add colours in your outfit, or may I say your hair!
Photobucket

On the last note.. Please dont be as silly as me to spray perfume on your necklaces! 🙂
