My Thoughts:

I have had really nice experience with VICHY products before, so one fine day, when I was running out of a daily moisturizer, I decided to give this anti-imperfection hydrating care a try. 


The VICHY NORMADERM Global anti-imperfection Hydrating Care comes in a simple pump bottle with a sturdy fresh green cap. Although, pump packaging that is un-openble, leads to a lot of product wastage towards the end, however , I still love them because it’s so much easier and non-messy to use. Also, the opaque bottle will never allow you to know how much product you have left inside.

The consistency of this moisturizer is quite dense and thick, but it almost melts when you massage it across your face and disappears within seconds. The texture is light and it gets absorbed super fast.

It has a very light fresh green scent to it which I like , but it doesn’t stay on for long.

The moisturizer is very well hydrating, and especially if you have rough skin with dry patches. The hydrating effect lasts for as long as 7-8 hours , and this is my preferred moisturizer to be used under my foundation. It also minimizes the appearance of pores temporarily . However, when worn just on it’s own, I feel this moisturizer is quite comfortable with a little bit of shiny residue which I don’t mind. However, on very humid days, I have to set it with a  little bit of powder. Contrary to its claims of providing shine free skin, this actually adds a bit of shine on the face. It’s not too much, but still it isvery much there. 

Overall, The VICHY NORMADERM Global anti-imperfection Hydrating Care is a great daily moisturizer. It does deliver on most of it’s claims like long-lasting hydration, minimizing pores, and working on uneven skin (in my case rough/dry patches sometimes!!). I am not sure how much it works on blemishes, because I don’t have too many right now, and the few sun spots that I have, have been there for years and nothing works on them. I only wish it had a more mattifying effect, and that would have totally made it an indispensable part of my life. For now, I would enjoy using this till it lasts !! I would not recommend it unless you have imperfection prone skin because at that price point, you can surely get a better moisturiser. However, since it has Salicylic Acid as an active ingredient, I’m sure it would be great for acne prone skin.

    Im crazy for anything with salicylic acid.It helps with smoothening acne as well as grainy bumpy skin (keratosis piliaris) ..looks like its worth a try

    Woah this would be great for me as this contains salicylic acid.
    I have been using SebaMed for my cleansing and moisturizing needs. I would like a change though :)
    Thanks Agni for the review.
