Vichy’s Aqualia Serum and Slow Age Moisturiser

In May of this year I was invited to a Bloggers Breakfast with TV’s Xpose and Vichy Skincare, an incredible day and a brilliant experience that you can read all about here => On the Road with Xposé’s Beauty Bus and Vichy Skincare

We were given products to try and test out, which is what I’ve been doing with Vichy’s Aqualia Serum and Slow Age Moisturiser. I used both products together for about 4 months, and I now can happily recommend them to my readers. When I’m at a Vichy stand and I see all the products on the shelves, I find it a bit overwhelming, and hard to determine what’s what. This post will give you an idea as to what the Slow Age Range is and what the Aqualia Range is and will hopefully make your life that little bit easier when trying to decide on a product that’s right for YOUR SKIN TYPE.

Vichy Aqualia Serum €32.50

Vichy Aqualia Serum

The Range

Vichy’s Aqualia Thermal range is for people who want to fight dehydration in their skin. Dehydrated skin is a SYMPTOM of your skin type, it is NOT a skin type. Dehydration means you are lacking water and whether you have oily skin or dry skin, you can suffer with dehydration. Vichy’s Aqualia Thermal Range fights dehydration to give you plumper, smoother skin.

The Science

Vichy Aqualia Serum contains –

Hyaluronic Acid

  • a humectant that attracts and holds moisture in the skin.
  • plumps skin cells to give you a more youthful appearance.

Glycerin

  • is another humectant that attracts and hold moisture in the skin
  • an emollient that makes skin soft and supple to touch

My Results

After about 2-3 weeks of use, I noticed a difference in the smoothness on my cheeks and forehead area. There was a notable difference in my fine dehydration lines and this only improved as time went on.  My skin was definitely softer to touch and I loved the silky feel of the serum. Important to note that when it comes to serums, they are more concentrated than moisturisers and only a small amount is to be used.

My Recommendations

Vichy’s Aqualia Serum would make the perfect for anyone who feels their skin is lacking in moisture, feels tight, rough or irritated. You will get results and notice an improvement in the over all feel to your skin with regular use. I used day and night and I applied it before moisturiser.

Vichy Slow Age Fluid Moisturiser €30

Vichy Slow Age

The Range

Vichy’s Slow Age range is their most powerful probiotic skincare line that is clinically proven to fight signs of aging, like lines, and wrinkles. It improves the overall health of the skin by improving skin complexion as well as it’s natural radiance. Bursting full of active ingredients to ensure your skin is functioning at it’s optimum level.

The Science

Vichy Slow Age Fluid Moisturiser contains –

Baicalin

  • is from the root of an ancient herb
  • protects the skin from free radical damage, for example, UV rays
  • restores and strengthens skin cells
  • improves firmness of the skin and it’s elasticity

Bifidus

  • is probiotic derived and can improve the overall tone and texture of your skin
  • probiotics are being used more and more in skincare because of their protective properties

My Results

I really liked this moisturiser, it wasn’t too thick or heavy and absorbed well into my skin.  I didn’t need to use a lot of it to feel that moisturised feeling we all want and love. For me it worked well under my makeup and my skin felt moisturised throughout the whole day. My skin felt a lot firmer and I did notice a reduction in lines and wrinkles. I loved that it has an SPF of 30 because it eliminates the need to buy two separate products.

My Recommendations

I would recommend Vichy’s Slow Age Fluid Moisturiser for people in their late twenties to mid thirties who are noticing the signs of aging. It can be used on even the most sensitive skin types as it’s hypoallergenic. It will slow down the signs of aging while also preventing it. Use every day for best results as your daily moisturiser.

About Me – Who am I?

(NOTE – This is not a sponsored post and I was not paid to give a good review.  It was given to me for my consideration and for me to give my opinion on it, good or bad. When I am given/sent something I use it for at least 4 weeks(sometimes more), research all the ingredients, see it’s effectiveness and then share with you my own experience with the product.

To me the single most important thing about blogging is TRUST and I wouldn’t want to ruin the trust I have built up with my readers by recommending something that’s not very good. I will never put my name to a mediocre product.)
