An Introduction to Vichy

Vichy invented the concept of dermocosmetics in 1931. Since then, with over 80 years of advanced research, Vichy has continued the legacy of its founder Dr Haller with pioneering skincare solutions in the field of skincare. It offers solutions designed for different lifestyles and skin types, accompanying women throughout each stage of their life. Vichy’s unique formulations combine mineral rich thermal spa water with renowned dermatological ingredients selected for each individual skin need. Believing in health, means looking at skin in a unique way. They believe that health is the most effective, secure and advanced path to sustainable beauty and that true beauty stems from healthy-looking skin. Here at Beauty Expert, we couldn’t agree more! Read on to discover more about the brand’s unique thermal spa water and the products we’re most excited about!

The Thermal Spa Water

The thermal water is at the heart of Vichy, and is the unifying element across time, from the very origins of the brand. It is well known for its fortifying and soothing properties. Filtered through volcanic layers, Vichy Thermal Spa Water is naturally enriched with 15 minerals and 13 trace elements.

Today, Vichy Thermal Spa Water is recognised by the French Academy of Medicine and has been shown to hydrate and soothe the feel of the skin in order to fortify the skin’s natural protective function. The benefits are endless, from relieving redness and soothing sensitive skin, to reinforcing the skin’s natural protection.

And the products we’re most excited about…

LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme

Vichy has shown that as a woman ages, her skin recovers from daily aggression slower than that of a younger woman. Alongside this, ageing signs can become more prominent and begin to settle into the skin. Wrinkles can also start to appear and a loss of firmness can occur.

LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme targets 10 signs of ageing, whilst accelerating surface skin cell renewal. With over 10 years of research and 10 proofs behind it, including instrumental and clinical tests, it is Vichy’s most powerful anti-wrinkle serum.

The unique formula is enriched for the 1st time with 10% Rhamnose and both Hyaluronic Acid and fragmented Hyaluronic Acid. The ultra-concentrated formula delivers up to 2 times more Rhamnose in the epidermis* and helps accelerate surface skin cell renewal.

10 signs of ageing look improved:

  1. Wrinkles
  2. Loss of firmness
  3. An uneven complexion
  4. Dullness
  5. Fine lines
  6. Tired features
  7. A loss of tonicity
  8. Dehydrated skin
  9. A loss of plumpness
  10. Signs of fatigue

Dermablend 3D Correction Foundation

With Vichy Dermablend 3D Correction, one application is enough to turn acne-prone skin into a smoother, more even, “ready to face the world” complexion. The complexion looks even, smooth and matte for up to 16 hours. Better still, the foundation provides an SPF 25 so your skin will be protected from environmental aggressors too.

A breathable, gentle, effective formula that will:

  • Provide immediate texture correction
  • Helps conceal blemishes and breakouts of acne
  • Reduce the appearance of redness
  • Leave skin looking clearer
  • Mattify skin for a natural finish

Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum combines, for the first time, Vichy Thermal Spa Water and a micro-encapsulated delivery system of Activ Hyaluronine to improve the diffusion of moisture into the surface of the epidermis. The skin feels replenished with water, as if continuously hydrated by misting micro-sprays.

The velvety hydra-fluid texture has been designed to instantly infuse moisture throughout the layers of the upper epidermis, leaving the skin instantly hydrated, soothed and fortified. The skin is softer and more supple to touch and looks instantly healthier.
