Vichy Idealia Smoothing and Illuminating Cream

Vichy isn't a brand I had ever tried until I recently tried this cream - Vichy Idealia Smoothing & Illuminating Cream. I had heard of them but I never knew much about what they sold or saw their products about much when shopping in the usual high street drugstores.

This cream is like a dream cream though, I have really come to love it over the past month or so of use. It boasts to smooth the skin, reduce pores and help with wrinkles, amongst other things. I can confirm that it smoothes and does make my pores appear smaller, but I haven't noticed any other major differences yet.

But yes, I love it. On application it instantly brightens the skin, giving a fresh faced glow. It smoothes and illuminates, hence the pores apprearing less. For me it is a perfect cream to apply before foundation because it gives the glow underneath foundation as well as the smoother texture.

It feels light to apply and sinks in quickly, it also has a nice scent, non-offensive and very light and fresh. I am quite addicted to how it makes my skin looks and would most definitely consider repurchasing this, though this 50ml seems to be going a long way - you don't need to use to much at all.

Vichy Idealia is available for dry skin and normal/combination skin. It contains fortifying Vichy Thermal Spa Water. It is Paraben-free and suitable for sensitive skin. It's a skincare/beauty must have for me.

Vichy Idealia Smoothing & Illuminating Cream is available at Gordons Direct for £22.00, for Normal/Combination or Dry Skin.
