Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care (phew what a mouthful!) is a treatment lotion that promises smoother skin texture, purified skin and reduced appearance of pores with a mattifying effect on shine-prone skin.
The benefits of Vichy Normaderm lotion are:
1. Total anti-imperfection action: shine, pores, skin texture
2. 24hr hydration
3. Long lasting matte finish
I tend to have quite dry, patchy skin so I gave this bottle of Vichy Normaderm lotion to flatmate Jules, as she is always looking for good pore-minimising products and has quite shine-prone skin from working in an over air-conditioned office.
She tested it for me over a two-week period and this is what she discovered…
She really likes it!
Vichy Normaderm is a really light weight fluid lotion that has a delicious fresh fragrance, it melts into your skin easily and doesn’t leave a greasey residue.
Jules noticed that in the first few days of using Vichy Normaderm her skin was actually a little more shiny than normal, but I forced her to persevere with the lotion so we could see some longer-term results.
Boy is she pleased she did! … The Normaderm lotion has worked to even her skin-tone and reduce the look of her pores, I noticed in particular after about a week that the texture of her skin was much smoother and more even. Jules herself has said that even in the hideous elevator light at her work she can see a noticible improvement in the look of her skin.
The only complaint that she has is that she doesn’t think that Vichy Normaderm has a discernable mattifying effect, so she is still using blotting paper every now and then.
Overall Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection care has lived up to it’s claims though! I am always really impressed when you can actually see visible results from a skin care product.
Now Normaderm is meant to be for young, prone to problem skin… and while I’m not saying Jules is old – she’s no teenager and this product really suits her skin, so if you have oily skin I’d recommend it, even if your teen days are a slightly hazy memory!
I was sent Vichy Normaderm by Escentual.com where you can buy Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care online for £7.67 (instead of £11.50).
