Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme, R560
What they say: New and improved! Our best-selling anti-wrinkle and hydrating face serum featuring 10% Rhamnose, now with Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid. Visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles–including crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, wrinkles under eyes, and neck wrinkles. Feel tighter and visibly plumped skin in 10 days.
What I say: So I’ve been using this for 10 days – the amount of time Vichy promises I’ll see results in, and my skin is definitely looking much plumper and firmer. It’s technically aimed at older skins, lacking firmness, but as it contains hyaluronic acid, it’s great for dehydrated skins, too.
The formula is a gel-like serum that, although it doesn’t absorb immediately, does soak into the skin, leaving it soft and without any sticky residue.
The biggest difference is on my décolletage, as this is where I had the most noticeable wrinkles. The fragmented hyaluronic acid is just smaller molecules, which can penetrate further and quicker than regular sized molecules. My skin looks firmer and feels super-hydrated all day long, even in icy cold winds.
There is one thing I wish they’d change, though, and that’s the dropper application method. I don’t know why, but I really dislike droppers. I much prefer pump bottles.
Annoying dropper aside, if you are prone to supreme dryness like I am in winter, or are in need of a firmness boost, this is the product to get you through.
