My Vichy Routine | #VichyWorksForMe

#vichyworksforme my vichy routine

I liked skincare before I started blogging, but over the years have come to be a little bit more obsessed with everything skin. A brand that has helped that obsession is most certainly Vichy, whose products seem to multiply when I'm not looking- I have quite a collection of brand favourites. So, you see why I was totally thrilled when Vichy offered me a customized skincare routine. Want a peek at what it includes and details on how you can create your own custom Vichy routine? Read on!

#vichyworksforme eau thermal proeven cleanser  (1)

A product I repurchase annually- it's a summer favourite for me- is Vichy Eau Thermale Thermal Spa Water. Yes, it's just water in a can, but it's just so versatile. It soothes irritated skin, is cooling, reduces redness, and is so gentle you can use it to sooth baby's delicate skin as well as your own. I tend to go for the jumbo cans whenever they're available (usually in the summer months, check your drugstores!) but the 50 g can is the perfect size for stashing in your bag for quick mists on the go. 

You likely know I'm a sucker for brightening products and as such have become a fan of Vichy's ProEven range (full review here.) The cleanser of the range, Vichy ProEven Brightening Cleansing Foam is one for the books as it effectively cleanses skin and offers up a brightened complexion from the first use. Better yet, it's a triple duty cleanser as it cleanses, brightens, and exfoliates thanks to LHA for a smoother more radiant complexion.

#vichyworksforme idealia life serum

Vichy's serums are the jam (or jelly, whatever you prefer.) Vichy Idealia Life Serum is a night and day option that gives skin a complete overhaul. Touted as a skin idealizer it works to perfect skin (tone, texture, complexion etc) and give skin the look of a full night's sleep and an enviable je ne sais qui. I don't usually get excited about scent in my skincare, but the Idealia Serum has the nicest, soft scent that I really love. See my full review here.

#vichyworksforme proeven dark sot corrector proeven night concentrate

In the treatment department, Vichy's ProEven range ticks a lot of boxes. Vichy ProEven Advanced Daily Dark Spot Corrector is a daily treatment that works to correct uneven skin tone and reduce visible imperfections on skin with a moisturizing formula. I find the effect on dark spots does take some time to notice, but the change in overall tone and evenness is noticable with just a dew weeks use. Full review here.

For overnight correcting, Vichy PreEven Night Overnight Concentrate picks up where the Daily Corrector leaves off as it contains 3x the amount of active ingredients and acts as a resurfacing product as well. While the spot reducing capabilities are appreciates, I especially love how this transforms skin texture for the smoothest skin possible. Read my full review here.

Overall, I'm very pleased with my Vichy routine as I know each product meets my needs and gets me that much closer to my ideal skin. Vichy currently has a nifty skin diagnostic tool on their website which allows you to upload a photo and pinpoint your specific skincare concerns and targeted questions to determine your optimal Vichy products. Oh, and even better, you can save $20 on your purchase. Head to vichyworksforme.ca to check it out. Have you tried any of these products? Do you have a favourite Vichy product?
