VICHY Laboratories LIFTACTIV NUIT (Rs 2190/50 ml) is a night care cream meant for mature skin that claims to have anti-wrinkle and firming properties.

The VICHY LIFTACTIVE NUIT comes in a blue glass jar with a white screw top lid. The packaging is fuss free, but I don’t really prefer glass jars. It sits prettily on the dresser and the blue color of the jar lends that hint of seriousness to the product. I love it, but wouldn’t dare to travel with it!


The texture of this cream is luxuriously thick and dense, but surprisingly it just melts on the skin and gets absorbed easily.. It does look a bit greasy upon application and stays like that.  It does have VICHY Thermal Spa Water as an ingredient and is mild and gentle on my skin, and has never broken me out.


I have been using this cream for about 2 months now, and I’m totally in love with this.My earlier night cream was also from VICHY (about which you might have read about HERE , and which I also loved a lot) . Unlike many night creams, that tingle , and create a whitish case, and in some cases also broke me out, this night cream delivers a lot of what it promises to. Although , this cream is meant for mature ageing skin, and I’m not quite there, but I still decided to give this a shot because I did feel my skin was looking dehydrated more than anything else and I wanted a rich cream to help restore my skin’s hydration levels. The formula is super amazing and it works best when I mildly exfoliate my face before application. It just sinks in deep and slowly works it’s way towards the deepest layers of skin (or so I felt!). 

After 2 months of constant usage, my skin definitely feels a lot firmer, glowing and more supple. Since the texture is quite heavy, you need a small amount of product in every usage. The amount that you see is left in the jar is after using the cream for two months, both as a day and as a night cream. It may seem funny , but I like to not buy a separate day cream from the same range and instead use the same night cream in a lesser quantity and top off with my sunscreen for day time wear. That way , I get the maximum usage and benefit out of both the products and since I use only one or two skincare products at a time, I can know exactly if any of them is causing any allergies or irritations on my skin. I was extremely satisfied with my VICHY Bi-WHITE MED NIGHT , however, as a beauty blogger, I’m always tempted to try newer products so I can review them on the blog. And the LIFTACTIVE NIGHT is one purchase I’m so happy about. 

Vichy products are all Made in France and we know that the French wouldn’t settle for anything that’s even an iota short of perfection. Maybe that’s the reason why I have been having great experiences with all VICHY Skincare that I’ve used till date, though it is not a lot!

Overall, the Vichy LIFTACTIV NUIT  is a great night care routine product for ageing/ mature skin , especially for women with Normal to Dry Skin. Women with extremely Oily skin should skip this one because the texture is quite rich and it is advisable to try a sample before you buy the full sized product. Continuous usage of the LIFTAVTIV NIGHT (and insane amount of drinking water!) has really helped my skin bounce over to a much better state(which some of you may have noticed in my FOTDs as well) than ever before. I wake up to radiant skin every morning and the the effects are actually quite visible. TOTALLY RECOMMEND!
