I was selected on Crowdtap to participate in the 8 day #LifeproofSkin challenge using the Vichy Idéalia Life Serum samples I received in the mail. My samples arrived packaged in a cute shimmery pale pink organza bag. I thought that was a really nice touch; it was almost like receiving a gift from a boutique.
I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect when trying this new product, but was very excited at the prospect of getting some first hand experience with it. I generally just use a basic facial moisturizer and hadn’t tried a facial serum before, or an anti-aging product, for that matter.
The first thing I noticed was how silky feeling the Vichy Idéalia Life Serum is. I also detected a subtle fragrance that reminded me of roses, which was very pleasant and not the least bit overwhelming. I really liked how smoothly the serum went on and soaked into my skin, leaving it feeling baby soft. I expected that feeling to dissipate after awhile, but it lasted all day and didn’t make my face look greasy or feel heavy like other moisturizing products have in the past.
I used Vichy Idéalia Life Serum for 8 days straight and found that my skin continuously felt baby soft and toward the end I started to notice my dry skin areas were starting to shrink and look healthier. Overall, I’d say my skin actually brightened up a bit after using the serum and I noticed that my pores had also become smaller and less noticeable. I am very pleased with this product and would definitely use it again. I’m just sad that I am out. Thank you Crowdtap and Vichy for the opportunity!
