This product is for the LiftActiv Nuit featured in the blue jar, not the LIftActiv CxP Nuit, which I believe is discontinued. HOLY WOW! This product may be more deserving of five stars than any product I have ever tried or reviewed, ever.

Throughout my 30s, I had been fighting off the fine lines under the eyes, usually with easy success. As that decade round to a close, products that had previously worked did not work anymore. Namely my Biotherm Rides Repair Nuit, a former Holy Grail.

I found myself layering products or trying different combinations, or worse, layering several products throughout the day to try to keep those fine lines plumped out. Then I would go outside into the dry winter air, or wake up from sleep to find those lines just entrenched. Truly frustrating. Since Vichy has a full line at Walgreens and I'm familiar with several of their products, I figured why not give this one a try.

I am thrilled to say it works like nothing else ever has. I will condition this by saying that year-round, I always add some Silkia camellia oil underneath my eyes after I wash my face. Then, over the entire face, I add Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10. Once that is dry, I add this product around the full eye area and the mouth area, including the nasolabial folds.

Now, my skin under the eyes seem so resilient! So full of moisture. I was initially worried, because this product does not feel as emollient as the Biotherm. However, it does the job. I can go hours outside in the harshest Chicago winter days, and the undereye area still looks and feels moist and mostly line-free. Even better, when I wake up after sleeping on my side, I don't have those annoying set-in crease lines under my eyes.

I can't promise it will work as well for you, but if you've exhausted all other options, give it a try! It's my new Holy Grail!

I use Vichy products at night and this is one I use regularly. The Liftactiv Nuit is creamy, fresh scent, and absorbs well, I prefer a faster absorbing lotion. No reaction to the product. It's anti-wrinkling, firming lotion, and paraben-free. I have been using this product for about 2 years and the 50ml last about 8 months for me. I use to use the Lift Activ Nuit CxP but I don't think they make that product anymore :( This will have to do. Thanks for reading.

Let's start off about my skin: I have normal to dry skin with the beginning of some fine lines under my eyes and very clear skin. This night cream retails for $49 and can be found at Walgreens and Ulta, probably some other retailers as well. I did not purchase this but I received it for free from a Vichy/LRP training seminar that my coworker attended. As It's for mature skin, I didn't think I would like it, being that it's extremely thick and I'm not used to a thick cream. I'm only 27 so I didn't think I needed something for wrinkles. However, after using it for a month, I feel like it's one of the best creams that has ever touched my face. Yes, it's very thick and almost ointment like, but it does not feel heavy on my face. A little bit goes a long way so I don't see this having to be repurchased that often. It makes my skin extremely smooth and does seem to help with elasticity. Even though I received this for free I'm pretty sure I would go out and buy it again because it really is the best cream i've ever used. I will update further if it's helped with any fine lines.

This is a lovely, rich product. Lightly scented, silky, and very hydrating on my dry, maturing skin. After exfolating, I smooth it on, and it absorbs easily. I wake every morning with smooth, soft, hydrated skin, and, because it is so refreshed, my fine lines are nearly non-existent! There was definitely a firming effect for me as well after several uses! Worth every penny!

i've been testing vichy liftactiv since a couple of,i finally decided to buy it! Not only was it in special(10 dollards off)but i received in a gift set:a little day liftactiv cream,plus a one step cleanser(purete thermale)! Wow! I am really happy with vichy! It brings a velvety smoothness to the skin,firm the skin,treat some redness,treats the general aspect of the skin,brings a healthy glow to the skin!so far so good! I combine it with collagen ellastin by st ives.i take l'oreal for day time.but will surely buy the big day liftactiv cream and probably the serum and eye cream liftactiv!that's how much i love vichy liftactiv cream!love it!

I must be using a different product than the other reviewers. I saw no change in wrinkles. It is not moisturizing although it sold as more of a treatment rather than a moisturizer.

This cream might be ok if it were priced at $25. However, at $50 I do not think I have ever used a more disappointing cream.

NeOvadiol is the only product I will be buying from the Vichy line the future. It is my HG.

Loooving this product!!! Have been using for 3 nights now, and i can feel my skin smoother, more replenished and more even... Its not greasy, it's silky texture, thats great cuz that way i dont wake up with pimples in my face... The only thing i wish the container was a pump, i dont like to put my fingers in contact with the rest of the cream, that might contaminate the cream with germs... but anyways... Great facial cream, the only downer is the container...

This is a luxuriously rich cream. My skin was a little dry, but I didn't think it warranted a thick cream like this. Still, I put a bit of it on my neck and cheeks and it felt so good I ended up slathering it on. I don't know what it did to me, but my skin simply looked BETTER. My daughter said I looked "well-hydrated".

I've only been using this cream for a few days, but my skin feels so good, I'm sure I'll be using this for some time.

Very nice!! I haven't tried any Vichy products for a very long time. I went to Shoppers Drug Mart with dry winter skin and this is what I was told was a great product. I am very happy with it. Nice smell, no break outs and my skin looks great in the morning. So far so good!!!! Will update if something changes, good or bad.

Not bad. It is a pretty good night cream for winter. It made my skin soft and radiant.
