Vichy- Your skin's best mate

by Sophie Brown


This small blue bottle of white semenesque (don't let that put you off) liquid may look harmless and yes it is but it is extremely successful in it's job of hydrating parched skin. Thanks to this and Sali Hughes, my skin has really taken a turn down a good path.  

I always used to think I had dry skin and bought products according to this self assessment but after watching a YouTube video of Sali Hughes defining skin types, I realised my skin was actually dehydrated. It always used to feel like a lump of uncooked dough in mornings after nights out and my make up would be receding on my face by the end of a long day of work. This was because my skin was so thirsty it would just suck up anything on my face which lead to patchy make up. In the words of Alan Partridge, it was an A-Haaaaaa moment when I realised what the problem was. 

Sali Hughes recommended this serum on her blog and I thought I would give it a go as it had all round brilliant reviews on all websites I looked on. I got it for £15 instead of £22 on Escentual.com, my go to for skin products as they have year round sales and I started using it every night, patting it on my skin before applying moistuiser. I can genuinely say I saw a difference in my skin straight away. My make up stayed fresh and quite dewy all day, no patches. I also woke up with softer and more plumped feeling skin and I find that I don't get spots as often on my chin too. It has been a part of my skin routine for around 4-5 months now and I could not be without it. It is worth the investment and if you look out for sales and shop wisely you can get for a good price.  Total must have for all dehydrated gals!
