Product Review—Skin Care: A 3-in1 Wonder for Oily Skin—Vichy Normaderm Triple Action Anti-Acne Hydrating Lotion
Keeping my skin hydrated has always been a battle. Between oily zones and dry areas, my skin seems to be in a constant war zone. Some treatment moisturizers just dry my skin out completely, while others go too far and turn my face into an oil slick (#gross).
It's very rare occasion that I come across a moisturizer that balances my oily skin, leaving it hydrated and refreshed. Vichy Normaderm Triple Action Anti-Acne Hydrating Lotion is designed to hydrate, mattify, and fight acne, and I desperately need ALL THREE in my life. So needless to say, having this product to review made my oily acne-prone skin quite happy.
Here are the details about Vichy Normaderm Triple Action Anti-Acne Hydrating Lotion:
3-in-1 Anti-Acne hydrating lotion: Clears acne, Mattifies and hydrates. Unique association of salicylic acid, glycolic acid and LHA in a daily hydrating lotion. Oil-free hydration clinically proven to fight the cycle of acne imperfections. Clears blemishes and blackheads and helps prevent new ones from forming, purifies and helps control oils. Skin feels soft and comfortable.
Formulated to minimize side effects. Also with silica and perlite for an instant matte effect. In an easily absorbed, lightweight, non sticky, oil-free lotion providing 24Hr hydration. Paraben Free, Non comedogenic. Allergy tested. Tested on sensitive skin under dermatological control.
After my first use of this Vichy lotion I fell in love. The scent, texture, and immediate results were enough to seal the deal for me. Here is why Normaderm lotion works:
Acne prevention: salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and LHA work together to exfoliate and treat and prevent acne.
Mattifying and hydration: resulting from balanced more normalized skin.
Vichy's Normaderm was a winner for me for several reasons:
It leaves my skin hydrated yet matte throughout the day. I started using this moisturizer right before my wedding and it helped keep my stress-related acne flareups at bay! My skin is so clear that I need to use much less makeup than usual.
The pump bottle insures that you receive just the right amount of product for application. Additionally, I love that I do not have to put my fingers in a jar—it keeps my product free from added bacteria.
One thing that I did find is that you need to allow sufficient time between applying Normaderm and applying makeup. The active ingredients in Normaderm need time to settle on your skin, so give it about 15- 20 minutes before applying makeup.
This product works. The packaging is eye-catching, and the green top makes for an easy find in the medicine cabinet in the morning. The sum of all of the above means 5 blings!
