Can you honestly say that you treat your skin with all the love and TLC it rightly deserves. No of course not because life sometimes get in the way, i'm sure the majority of us try our hardest but research has shown that at least a third of British women commit a skin care crime on a daily basis such a smoking, poor diet, alcohol and lack of sleep. Oops but fear not as Vichy Idealia Life Serum has been created to target the four areas of skin quality and concerns that contribute how skin ages and its appearance such as - Skin Tone (skin tone, sallowness, dullness) , Skin Contrasts (pigmentation marks , uneven skin tone, scarring) , Expressivity (sagging, loss of elasticity ) and Skin Balance (open pores, excess sebum and dry patches).
Vichy have patented a new approach to skin care in the form of their Idealia Life Serum swooping in and helping us rewind the revenges of time with a suit all serum that will allow you to live your normal and most likely stress filled life with a little assurance that you are doing all you can for your skin. The innovative formula has been created with the inclusion of LR2412 and LHA. The LR2412 molecule is inspired by the jasmine flower’s process of self repair, encouraging epidermal repair and boosting the skin’s natural ability to protect itself. LHA stimulates cellular repair in tired skin, and exfoliates the surface of the skin to better reflect light and reduce the appearance of pigmentation. Couple that with regenerating Vichy Thermal Spa Water which natural benefits are simply astounding : it Soothes and acts as an anti-inflammatory,fortifies, protects the skin tissue, helps with cell oxygenation,aids hydration, regenerates skin tissue and skin cells and is a great antioxidant. Rather impressive I'm sure you will agree.
I liken Vichy Idealia Life Serum a little to Estee Lauder's new Advanced Night Repair only this serum is a little lighter in texture and has an illuminating, opalescent texture which is made up of golden and red pearls to add a quick boost of radiance to the skin - the overall effect is very subtle and is somewhat similar to MAC's Strobe Cream. The texture leaves is as mentioned light, non greasy, quickly absorbed and the product forms a protective film on the skin’s surface to protects the skin from the micro particles that collect on the surface throughout the day. It is suggested that you use the serum both day and night in conduction with your regular moisturiser but I have only been using it in the morning and will state that it hydrates the skin while leaving it glowing, is the perfect base product for applying make-up on top off and although it does brighten immediately I rather like knowing that once applied I am guarding my skin against all the day can through at it. For a skin care product that protects, is laden with anti-ageing technology and leaves the skin looking and feeling fresh you can't really go wrong with Idealia Life Serum particularly if you are looking for a slightly cheaper alternative to Estee Lauder ANR.
