Vichy Idealia Smoothing & Illuminating Cream
Vichy Idealia is a new smoothing and illuminating cream from Vichy, designed to help restore the behaviour of healthy looking skin. "Vichy Idealia Smoothing & Illuminating Cream visibly smoothes the appearance of wrinkles and leaves skin's texture refined and softer. It re-awakens the skin's natural radiance for a fresh, and even complexion.”
The pale pink gel cream is pleasantly fragranced and colour coordinated with the opalescent pale pink jar! It absorbs quickly and creates an instant sheen on the skin.
My friend Alison (who knows all about beauty potions) has been testing Idealia for this review… here are her thoughts…
"I have been using Vichy Idealia for a few weeks now. My skin is dry in the morning and oily by the afternoon (what a combination!) and this product worked really well for me all day.
It feels gorgeous when you put it on in the morning - really light and fresh and I love the smell. My makeup glides on afterwards and I do think that its marketing claims are true with regards to skin looking more radiant as my skin can look quite dull at times (due to me not drinking enough water!). The whole texture and smell of it even makes you feel more radiant.
I can't comment on my wrinkles as I think it is too early yet, but will definitely continue to use Idealia and would recommend to others. The only downside it that is hasn't got an SPF but then again if it did. it mightn't feel as light on your skin.
So, whilst I still wouldn't pass for a Middleton sister I definitely feel it gives my skin a glow.”
Thanks so much for your brilliant review Alison - I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed using this product.
