Introducing new Vichy Liftactiv Specialist
We've just taken delivery of a brand new anti-ageing skincare range at Gordons Chemists - Vichy have just launched their Liftactiv Specialist collection. It's aimed at women who want 360º correction (read: a total, full fix) from the signs of age, with a cutting-edge product.
Vichy Liftactiv Specialist has been inspired by the advancement of "non-invasive aesthetic procedures" (treatments that are designed to make us look younger, without surgery). It works by helping your skin reactivate its own, natural production of collagen and hyaluronic acid.
The Vichy Liftactiv Specialist Range
There are 3 products (so far...) in the collection: Liftactiv Collagen Specialist (a daily-use cream that corrects 100% of ageing signs, for all skin types); Liftactiv Micro Hyalu-Filler Eye Patches (for an overnight transformation at home); and Liftactiv Hyalu-Filler Mask (with a record concentration of hyaluronic acid).
The range is powered by natural ingredients, and helps your skin to reactivate its own, natural production of Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid - to 100% correct the signs of age.
BTW - I'm loving these claims of the range being able to correct 100% of ageing signs. Can it really??
Vichy Liftactiv Collagen Specialist is a cream that is meant for daily use. It contains Biopeptides - natural mini-proteins that boost production of natural collagen by your skin; Vitamin C - an antioxidant that reduces brown spots and unifies your complexion; and Vichy Mineralizing Water - to boost your skin's defences. The main difference between this, and other anti-ageing products that we've seen, is the effect it has on your skin - helping it to increase its own collagen production.
Vichy Liftactiv Collagen Specialist claims to reduce wrinkles, improve skin tone, and give a more even complexion. You'll also benefit from a 'crescendo' effect - the longer you use it, the greater benefits you'll see.
Immediately upon use, you should notice your skin to be more toned and firm (based upon a clinical trial with 52 women aged 45-65 years). After one month of usage, your skin's regeneration is boosted, and you should notice less wrinkles, and more plump skin.
After 2 months, you'll notice less wrinkles, and your contours will be re-sculpted. Your complexion should be more even.
It's worth noting that Vichy are giving us these results as a clinical trial. They've sampled 52 women aged between 45-65 years, with sensitive skin. So when they say that skin appears more toned, more firm, and wrinkles are reduced - they're basing this claim on real life results.
Hyaluronic Acid Production
As well as collagen production, the Vichy Liftactiv Specialist range also includes 2 products that boost your skin's own, natural production of Hyaluronic Acid - Micro Hyalu-Filler Eye Patches, and a Hyalu-Filler Mask.
The Liftactiv Hyalu-Filler Eye Patches offer an overnight transformation at home, and should be used whenever they're needed. Each eye patch contains 160 micro-needles (needles...?) which gently dissolve into your skin's surface - delivering a targeted dose of 100% pure Hyaluronic Acid, to attack eye contour wrinkles.
Needles... "attack"... for our eyes? I'm assured by Vichy that this isn't what it sounds. You'll not notice anything unusual when using these Eye Patches, and they've been thoroughly tested under the control of dermatologists and opthamologists. They're suitable for sensitive skin and sensitive eyes.
Simply apply them under the eye before bed on cleansed skin. Wake up, remove, and voila!
Lines and wrinkles are filled, from within. Again, clinical trials back up what Vichy claim these Hyalu-Filler Eye Patches can achieve. In trials, 71% of people reported their Crow's Feet to be reduced, and 64% said their skin still seemed smoother the following evening.
They can also be used on your forehead, or between your eyes, and for wrinkles around the mouth.
The Liftactiv Hyalu-Filler Mask contains a record concentration of 1% Hyaluronic Acid - to deliver an injection-strength dose to your skin. Expect incredible smoothness, a more even skin tone, and improved radiance. Use it 2/3 times a week, at night time.
It features what Vichy are calling high-weight and low-weight hyaluronic acid - some of it remains on the surface of the skin to plump it, while some penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate its own production of hyaluronic acid.
Dermatologists (when putting this item through a clinical trial) saw skin to be instantly hydrated, softer and smoother. After 4 weeks of use, 83% of people trialling it said their skin was softer; 75% said it was more supple; and 72% thought their features were more rested and relaxed. Those are solid numbers.
This is an exciting anti-ageing range from Vichy, and we're looking forward to getting our hands on it. I've already a long list of colleagues who've put their names forward, "in case I wanted someone to try it..."
We're expecting the results to speak for themselves. Vichy are famed for the quality of the products they produce - everything is extensively researched, and developed with sensitive skin in mind, using the very best ingredients. We've seem time and time again that when they make a bold claim as to how a product will perform, they're usually correct.
Exciting times in the world of anti-ageing skincare - if this new Liftactiv range from Vichy works as well as they're saying it will, it is a gamechanger!
