Ever heard of Vichy? Vichy is a premium brand of skincare, body care, make up and anti-aging products. Vichy is best known for its thermal spa water, and many called them the miracle water!
About the Miracle water:It contains 15 minerals and constitutes a natural active ingredient in itself. Some of its minerals play a key role in skin metabolism:
+ Protecting skin’s tissue: Calcium
+ Cell oxygenation: Iron
+ Antioxidant action: Manganese
+ Skin hydration: Potassium

In other words, Vichy Thermal Spa Water is suitable, and work wonders for all skin types, whether sensitive or reactive. Its irreproachable quality is rigorously checked daily to guarantee optimal tolerance and efficacy!
3 Main Properties of the Thermal Spa Water:
SoothingIt reduces irritation (dryness, erythema, scaling), inflammation (vasodilation and redness) and sensation of discomfort from various dermatological pathologies such as acne or contact eczema.
It soothes intolerant and sensitive skin. Its buffer properties help correct the acid-base imbalance than can be created on the skin by pollution, for instance.
It also rebalances skin when aggressed by harsh cleansing.
FortifyingIt increases by more than 20% the catalase activity, an enzyme which plays an essential role in the skin’s natural defences.
It thus helps reinforce skin’s antioxidant defenses, protecting it against ageing and the harmful sun effects linked to free radicals.
It fortifies the stratum corneum, enriching it with calcium, magnesium and sodium.
RegeneratingIt stimulates cell metabolism by increasing cellular oxygen consumption by 77%. It acts on epidermal repair and remodelling mechanisms.
Enough of saying the endless benefits of Vichy Thermal Spa Water! Remember that in my earlier post, I posted an article about some of the myths about skin and skincare? (HERE!)
Today, I am going to share with you a series of products that is really great for acne-prone skin, even to the most sensitive skin! I am raving it so much because I am of the above condition, and many times, if I used the wrong products, my skin will have adverse effects instantly!
ㅠㅠ The miracle products is all packed in this nice, classy box!
Yes, you are right! They are from Vichy Laboratories! Vichy Vichy!!!
Its the Vichy Normaderm series!
About Normaderm Series:VICHY'S NORMADERM RANGE IS FORMULATED TO TREAT IMPERFECTIONS EVEN ON SENSITIVE SKIN. VISIBLY CLEARER SKIN WITHIN 7 DAYS!
Before I go on further, just a question to ask! Do you know what causes pimple?
We subconsciously touch our faces dozens of times everyday, and even more when a small pimple hurts, without realizing it! In making these insignificant gestures, we are adding to a bacteria over-contamination leading to the formation of pimples.
The bacteria carried on the fingers are transferred onto an already weakened skin; they enjoyed it, multiply and prevent the pimple from disappearing rapidly! And in just a few hours, the pimple will become redder, bigger and more painful, turning it into a real nightmare!
Now back to Normaderm range. Vichy's Normaderm range is formulated to treat imperfections, even on sensitive skin.
All Vichy products contain Vichy Thermal Spa Water which soothes intolerant and sensitive skin, protects the skin against aging and free radicals from the sun, and regenerates skin cells by stimulating cell metabolism and epidermal repair.

Though it is gel-like, but the foam actually lathers really easily. The smell of the cleansing gel is really nice, maybe more like a mild tangerine smell if i did smell correctly! ㅋㅋㅋ!

The lotion makes my face really refreshing! It did removes every traces of my makeup residues too. It is non-sticky, and it dries quite fast.
After using for a week to two now, I think my pores did shrinks a little.(Or maybe is it me only?) I guess results will be more obvious probably after using it more frequently.
But the instant results is that the pores are slightly tighten and skin feels more refine.

I AM SO IMPRESSED WITH THIS HYALUSPOT! It really makes my pimples/acne/blemish disappear within 48 hours! I simply could not believe my eyes!
The cold applicator makes the swelling pimples/acne/blemish less aggravate, calms down the infected skin while the gel/essence works on the pimple/acne/blemish.
To be honest, within 5 minutes upon applying the hyaluspot, the pimple is instantly losing the battle as the gel is really really really powerful. It makes the area leaving with tingling sensation, but it is bearable though!
I personally think that everyone should invest a stick of the Hyaluspot in case of emergencies! You know you do not want the annoying pimple/acne/blemish to spoil your big day/date/gathering/outing!
*PS: the cold applicator is so cold and soothing to the skin! I can still keep the applicator for future usage once it is finished! LOL
