Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care : Review

Written by: Swati on:

Around 6 months back, my skin was experiencing a very severe attack of acne. Alhough that has come down a lot now, I am still battling with scars, but that is a story for another time. 
Desperate attempts to bring the acne under control led me to the Vichy counter. I remember wanting to buy the night cream version, but it was out of stock. I got the Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care instead.

(If you would ask me off-chance on any regular day, I wouldn't even remember the name...some Vichy anti imperfection cream I would say. I'm bad with names!).

Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care review

"Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care is an all-in-one daily-use care to: treat imperfections, provide 24 hour hydration and leave a long lasting matte finish. Its unique Hydra Peeling technology is a new association of 3 peeling ingredients in daily hydrating care (salicyclic acid, glycolic acid, LHA). LHA is a patented ingredient that helps gently micro-exfoliate the surface of the skin for a smoother surface and uniform complexion. Purifying salicylic acid targets pores and helps break down blackheads and whiteheads by gently micro-exfoliating the top layer of skin and clearing blocked pores. Glycolic acid naturally neutralises bacteria that cause imperfections. The three ingredients are combined in a hydrating emulsion-gel texture that is quickly absorbed into the skin and provides a matte finish.

The cream comes in a sleek white squeezy tube with a screw on cap. It is leak proof and completely travel friendly. The precise nozzle helps dispensing the product well, minimizing wastage to a huge extent.

It has a very mild fragrance, which is quite pleasant but does not last long. Texture wise, the product was beautiful to use, being a light cream-gel that blends easily and sinks into the skin with minimal strokes. 
Sadly, those are all the plus-points for me. I used it for a nearly a month and it did not help in preventing breakouts, neither did it clear the existing acne, nor did it miraculously shrink my pores. My blemishes remained as bad as they were, and new ones kept erupting every other day!

All it helped was in keeping the skin hydrated. I was very much disappointed with this purchase.

Price : 750 INR for 30ml

I don't think this one is worth buying. I know they have a Tri-Active Anti Imperfection (I am not sure if it is the same thing or not, but it has better reviews). I have read many good reviews for the Night cream version also (which is probably what I should have stuck with as well, instead of listening to the SA!) *bangs head against the wall*

You can absolutely skip this one.

Have any of you tried it? If you have had a good experience with this one. then please let us all know. Maybe it works for a certain skin type, so do share the knowledge!
