It was 21C yesterday in Edmonton, and today it’s supposed to be 18C! That means it’s time to start thinking about showing that skin of ours that’s been hiding in sweaters all winter long! And I have two Vichy products to show you that will definitely help!
Vichy Ideal Body Serum-Milk & Vichy Cellu Destock Serum Flash
Vichy Ideal Body Serum-Milk
Vichy Ideal Body Serum-Milk is quite different from other body moisturizers you’ve tried before! Why? Well, it has ingredients that are traditionally used in face products! It contains Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate and help skin look hydrated and less wrinkled. It also contains LHA which is a micro-exfoliator to help skin look smoother and firmer. But Vichy didn’t just stop there oh no! There’s TEN oils as well in Vichy Ideal Body Serum-Milk! With Apricot kernel, Passionflower, Corn, Rice Bran, Sunflower, Blackcurrant Pips, Rosehip, Coriander, Macadamia and Jojoba oils. Vichy Ideal Body Serum-Milk will intensely hydrate as well as make your skin look warm weather ready.
Vichy Ideal Body Serum-Milk($22.50) has a milky, fluid-gel texture and as you can see it’s fairly thin and spreads easily. It just melts into skin instantly and you can get dressed right after using it. No greasy basted turkey feel with this one! As you can see, there are mother-of-pearl particles to enhance the skin. They are subtle, but you can see them on your skin. The scent is quite lovely and my nose would describe it as an amber floral, and it does linger for a bit on the skin. But it’s a nice clean smell and nothing overpowering I promise. I think it’s pretty much a perfect moisturizer for warmer weather and worth picking up next time you’re at the drugstore.
Vichy Cellu Destock Serum Flash
Vichy Cellu Destock Serum Flash($50) is also inspired by face care serums and is formulated with 3 powerful active ingredients: 6% pure caffeine, hyaluronic acid & salicylic acid. It also has light reflecting pearls for an instant skin blurring effect. Now, this is no magic potion that’s gonna make you slimmer and cellulite free. Sorry! Believe me, I wish there was a cream that would do that! But combined with exercise, Vichy Cellu Destock Serum Flash will help your skin look smoother and firmer thanks to those ingredients. It will help out the effects of exercise quite a bit, reducing the appearance of cellulite by up to 20% in 14 days. You need to use it twice a day for optimal results, which is usually my problem with these kinds of products. I tend to forget that part! Seriously, you have to be a keener! Putting on a body product twice a day is too much work for me hahaha! So, I can’t really comment on whether the claims are true about cellulite reduction. And honestly, I can’t say this enough: exercise will REALLY make your cellulite look better. So get out there and find something you love to do and you’ll see results I promise! Vichy Cellu Destock absorbs quickly as it’s a thin, caramel tinted serum, so you can immediately get dressed after application as well. But, it does instantly make skin look better by kind of blurring imperfections, which is really cool! It smells a little herbal though, with a hint of mint. Not my fave scent to be honest, but it’s not strong at least and doesn’t last.
Both of these Vichy products well really help get your skin looking good for warmer weather I promise!
Happy Friday everyone! Warmer weather finally! I hope the weather is beautiful where you are too! But to be honest, Edmonton needs a couple of days of really good rain to clean and green things up. Everything looks so…yellow and dirty right now! Where’s the April showers Mother Nature?!
I’m really liking this new body serum trend! The texture is more my style and I actually USE them compared to heavy body butters. Have you tried a body serum yet?
