As you know, I have combination/oily skin which break out easily and because of this acne prone condition I choose my products very carefully. I prefer to go for only few selected brands making exceptions once in a while. After trying out the face shop white seed blanclouding white moisture cream, I decided to try Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light Cream I have used Vichy products , and as they performed good on my skin so I was intrigued to try their new launch. Since I have been using this cream for over four weeks now I feel it is time to pen down its review.
What the product says
Aqualia Thermal skincare light cream recharges dry & dehydrated skin with intense hydration, using 97% naturally derived ingredients, including Hyaluronic Acid, fortifying Vichy mineralizing water, and plant sugar mannose. Skin is instantly dewy-fresh, feels comfortable, stays hydrated for up to 48 hours and are as reinforced even under climate variations, stress, or pollution.
My take on ‘Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light Cream’
This cream comes in a blue glass jar that is quite heavy; I would say a lot heavier considering it just contains 50ml in terms of quantity. It is easily available in all pharmacies and drug-stores, and if you are lucky you will also see an offer with it. I bought mine when Shopper drug mart was running 10% discount on it. It has 1 year shelf life, but I hardly expect it to last that long. I use it twice a day (morning and evening) and it has already come half way down. It does not contain SPF so when I apply it in the morning I make sure to apply another layer of sunscreen on top of it.
I have a combination skin, my T-zone is a bit greasier during the summer, while my cheeks are comparatively dry. In cold season my face lacks hydration resulting in flaky skin on the cheeks and around nostrils. This led to go for Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light Cream as it is made exclusively for people like me.
It has semi-runny consistency with very mild fragrance. It’s easy to spread and seeps into the skin really fast. Because of these things I have to take more quantity (as compared to other face creams) to cover my entire face and neck are and that’s why it is emptying fast. Well, I do not mid buying it again considering it does the moisturization job pretty well. Instantly, after the application the skin feels healthy and well-hydrated. Thankfully, it does not make the skin greasy and a home for bacteria growth which always results in acne. It is an absolutely light-weight cream and makes a good makeup base as well. Even when I wear it underneath the primer I do not see it messing up with the base.
Since I have started using this cream, my skin looks way better than how it used to be a few weeks ago. I can see it has become plump and glowing, and there are no more signs of dryness around the nose & cheeks. I also believe, it has reduced those fine lines that were started to appear on some areas of my face. I am using it as a night cream too to double the effects. And, I real hope if I keep giving my skin the required nourishment it will stay youthful for a long time.
