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 months.so,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.
I really like this cream. A little pricey but I think it will last for a couple months. I have pretty nice skin and I've been looking for a firming cream that would keep my skin from future saggyness. After a couple nights of using this my face seems to be a little tighter. I will update this reveiw in a couple of weeks. So far I have not broken out or develope any type of rashes from using this cream. Bought this at CVS.
As far as lifting products go, this is one of the better ones. I am still a bit young to start "lifting", but I got some samples and I've got some time and so here's my review! I know it says that lifting products are aimed at women in their 30's, but my skin isn't there yet. Aside from some bothersome sheet marks on my face in the morning, I don't need more lift at this point. Nevertheless, this is still a winner in my books!
First of all the smell is nearly delicious! It smells citrisy, very unusual for Vichy. It's riddled with goodness and vitamin C and I believe, elastin. The texture on the skin is very smooth and very supple, indicative of all Vichy creams. This one however, has more zing to it than other formulations and you can feel more vitamin and ingredient penetration deeper into the skin's pores as it absorbs. Hence, you can really feel it working.
My skin immediately changed tone upon using this cream and became less sallow. I also used the day formulation, the serum and the eye cream and saw a noticable increase in skin's energized tone and smooth texture. As I said, I am too young (33) for this cream, and it doesn't have enough moisture for me so I could not continue to use it unfortunately. If there was a little bit more moisture in the DAY cream, I'd be using this line religiously!
I may begin using the Lift Active night cream to avoid those bothersome morning sheet marks I've been getting......Perhaps this is how it all begins!
