All right ladies, save your 30$ and better invest it in something else. I didn't expect any miracles from this product. I have pretty bad dark circles under eyes, but Iíve learnt long time ago that nothing will take them away, so I invested in a good concealer [Vishy Dermablend, for those of you how is still searching for one :) ]. I just need a new jar of an eye cream and chose this one because it was more or less natural. What can i say, of cource, it doesn't help with undereye darkness and my biggest issue is that it is impossible to put makeup after this cream. Even if you used Ging the night before and even if you washed your eyes in the morning promptly. Needless to say it's impossible to apply concealer if you put the cream right before the application. The cream kind of flakes and there is this residue that doesn't go away, and you concealer appears to be all over the place together with the residue left from the cream... really bad. This product reminds me a lot of one of Dior cream and Olay has smthng similar also. However, my mom claims that it helped to reduce puffiness under her eyes, but she was taking some medication at the same time, so Iím not sure if that's because the cream, but Iím happy there was some use for it. Overall, now Iím stuck with a cute orange jar I have no use for. Recently got a tester of L'Occitane Apple-Almond concentrate eye gel, why oh why I didn't get the one instead :-/
First of all, let me tell you, I donít like Vichy. Everything that Iíve tried is either very average for the price that you paying or simply not good at all. Moreover, I donít like Dermablend foundation cause it makes my skin very oily in within an hour after application. Surprisingly I really LOVE this corrector. Iím using a sample that I occasionally got in the drug store, and Iím so happy that Iíve tried it! It is so perfect for undereye circles! Iíve tried many concealers and quite a few concealer pens: Dior, Guerlain, Chanel and all of them do not come even close to this. It actually hides the darkness and most importantly doesnít make you look like a ďcrazy anti-pandaĒ with white circles under your eyes. As for the texture and staying power I totally agree with the previous review. Iím definitely purchasing and repurchasing and repurchasing. The color range is ok since there is 5 shades, if Iím not mistaken, which is decent cause most of the concelears come in max of 3 shades. Itís does a good job on pimples as well, but Iím not buying it for this purpose. As for the price (23$), I think itís not that expensive especially compairing with Guerlain (55$) and even Maybelline (12$) both do nothing to the undereye darkness . Also I have feeling that this stuff will last for quite a while. I'll update if i stop loving it.
This scrub is wonderful! I loooove how my skin is after using it very smooth and velvet! The only big problem is packaging - it's horrible. Honestly, i'm never being too picky about packaging, but spending minutes in the shower trying to squeeze it out of a tube is kind of not very pleasant! Itís too bad that the packaging has ruined such a wonderful product. I might repurchase though and just squeeze it out to some other jar.

I'm on my second tube right now and don't really plan to switch to something else. I have acne, i mean real acne, not just couple of pimples here and there, and this foundation makes my skin look flawless. It doesn't break me out and i also believe that i break out much less when i'm wearing it. Before buying it for the first time i got a bunch of samples of Vichy Dermablend and LRP Toleriane.They are very similar. Both have great coverage and not so great colors. Why did i choose Toleriane? With Dermablend my face became extremely oily within an hour, much oilier then without any makeup, with Toleriane it stays matte for 3-4 hours, not bad! It might seem a bit pricy, but i was using my first tube for more than a year and i don't go outside without putting on the foundation. I will definitely give 5 lippies for the great coverage. It happened to me so many times when i wanted to buy some products in a drugstore for acne prone skin, consultants tried to convince me that i don't need them and that i don't have any acne whatsoever! The colors are a little bit odd. I'm using #13 Sand beige. My first choice was light beige, but it's a bit pinkish, and i have olive undertone, so i had to go one shade darker. Normally this Sand beige would be too dark for my skin, but somehow it doesn't look fake and blends just fine. Itís not the ideal shade though, I have to admit, but itís the closest one and the loose powder smoothes it out. The bottom line is: if you have ACNE GIVE IT A TRY!
