Vichy recently launched the Idealia line, with an improved formula. I received them a few weeks ago and I have to admit that the packaging was so appealing I said I have to give them a try.

This new formula has new extracts (black tea and blueberry antioxidants), illuminating the skin and giving the skin a more polished look. At least that’s what Vichy says!

 Vichy Ideala energizing and smoothing cream (mixed skin)

I can’t lie and not admit that this cream got me from the first look thanks to the packaging. A glass jar, in a colour that suggests “antioxidant” and hydration. I liked the creamy and light texture of this cream, soft touch that sinks quickly into the skin. The smell is very pleasant and fruity. I used it in the mornings, after I apply my La Roche Posay Effaclar, to hydrate my skin. It maintained my skin hydrated throughout the day and it really gave me a fresh feeling. It really is nice to apply in the morning!

Vichy Idealia radiance boosting antioxidant serum

I applied the serum in the evening. This comes in a glass bottle with a pump. It pumps just the right amount for an application. It has a liquid texture, slightly transparent and very watery. It gives you a very nice feeling on the skin and you have to leave it to sink in a little bit, but it hydrates very good. I like to apply it before any other treatment or cream, right after I took my makeup off and washed my face. There where many nights when I just applied the serum and no other cream or treatment. The next day I really woke up with a more luminous and even skin. I had a fresh feeling on the skin. I think this is what I like the most about it. And if you wonder why I chose to use a serum at night, it’s because it penetrates the skin even better than a cream, thanks to it’s texture and it manages to hydrate the skin more efficiently. Of course, I apply a night cream or treatment afterwards, but I think a serum is a pretty important step, especially if you want to prevent wrinkles.

 As a conlcusion, these are two products that I really like, two “basic” hydrating products, that I think every woman should have in their skincare regime (hydrating cream and serum). I think they are accessible as far a price goes, for what they have to offer. The purpose of this range is to give you a more “alive” and illuminated face and I think it manages so.

I’m very curious if you already tried this range, and if you did, please do share!

Cei de la Vichy au relansat pe piata gama Idealia, cu o formula imbunatatita. Le-am primit si eu acum cateva saptamani si recunosc ca m-a atras ambalajul asa ca m-am decis sa le incerc si eu.

Aceasta noua formula contine extracte noi (extract de ceai negru si antioxidanti din afine), acestea oferindu-i tenului netezire, luminozitate si energie. Cel putin asa spune Vichy!

Crema energizanta cu efect de netezire Vichy Ideala (pentru ten mixt)

Nu pot sa mint si sa nu recunosc ca aceasta crema m-a fermecat din prima clipa cu ambalajul sau. Un borcan de sticla, intr-o culoare care sugereaza asa “antioxidanti” si hidratare. Mi-a placut foarte mult textura ei cremoasa si foarte usoara, foarte fina la atingere si care intra repede in piele. Mirosul este placut, usor fructat. Eu am folosit-o dimineata, dupa ce imi aplic La Roche Posay Effaclar, pentru a-mi hidrata tenul. Mi-a mentinut tenul hidratat pe tot parcursul zilei si intr-adevar mi-a dat o senzatie de prospetime. Este un sentiment chiar foarte placut sa o aplici dimineata!

Serumul cu efect de iluminare Vichy Idealia

Serumul l-am aplicat seara. Acesta vine intr-o sticluta de sticla, cu pompa. Pompa dozeaza cantitatea potrivita pentru o aplicare. Are o textura lichida, usor transparenta si foarte apoasa. Iti da o senzatie foarte placuta pe ten si trebuie sa o lasi putin sa intre in ten, dar il hidrateaza foarte bine. Imi place sa il aplic inainte de a-mi aplica orice al tratament, imediat dupa ce m-am demachiat si m-am spalat. Au fost destule seri in care nu am aplicat absolut nimic altceva in afara de acest serum. A doua zi chiar m-am trezit cu un ten luminos si mai uniformizat ca si culoare. Aveam o senzatie foarte fresh. Asta cred ca imi place cel mai mult la el. Iar daca va intrebati de ce am ales sa folosesc un serum seara, este pentru ca acesta intra mult mai profund in piele datorita texturii si reuseste sa hidrateze pielea intr-un mod mai eficient. Desigur, apoi folosesc si o crema de seara, dar serumul zic eu ca este un pas in plus destul de important, mai ales daca doresti sa previi semnele imbatranirii.

Ca si concluzie, sunt doua produse care mie imi plac foarte mult, doua produse “basic”, de hidratare, care cred eu ca ar trebui sa existe oricum in regimul de ingrijire al oricarei femei (o crema hidratanta si un serum). Mi se par doua produse destul de accesibile ca pret pentru ceea ce ofera. Scopul acestei game este sa ofere un ten mai “vioi” si mai luminos si spun eu ca reuseste.

Sunt tare curioasa daca voi ati incercat pana acum un produs din noua gama Idealia, iar daca ati incercat, chiar va rog sa imi spuneti si mie ce parere aveti despre ele!
