VICHY Bi-White MED Deep Corrective Whitening Essence, (Rs 1150/ 15 ml)
VICHY Bi-White MED Deep Whitening Spot Intervention, (Rs 1390/15 ml)
I have been very dedicated in following a proper skincare routine for the past year or so, and one brand that I whole heartedly love and trust is Vichy. It has been a year and a half that I have been using ONLY Vichy products to get my skin back in shape and I’m quite happy and satisfied with the results that I got, except for The Normaderm Moisturizer, everything worked great.
Today, I’m going to review two star products from the Bi-White MED range, The Deep Corrective Whitening Essence and the Deep Cell Whitening Spot Intervention.
BI-WHITE MED DEEP CORRECTIVE WHITENING ESSENCE
WITH DRM-WHITE. WHITENING BREAKTHROUGH PRESENTED AT THE WORLD CONGRESS OF DERMATOLOGY TO TARGET FIBROBLASTS, THE DEEPER SOURCE OF PIGMENTATION. WITH DEEP CELL-WHITENING TO DEPIGMENT CELLS IN 100% OF EPIDERMIS.
Efficacy on Dark spots, Dullness, Yellowish complexion, Irregular skin texture.
The Bi-White Med Deep Corrective Whitening Essence comes in a metal tube with a nozzle opening that allows for optimum control on the amount of product dispensed. The only problem is if you press the tube a bit too much, it can’t be retracted to it’s original form and it will continue to ooze out the product until you’ve wasted enough. For the same reason , I won’t call it a travel friendly packaging.
The essence is creamy off-white in color, and the consistency of the essence is thicker than a regular serum but definitely more runny than a cream. The essence is emollient and gets absorbed super fast. On regular days , I don’t need any additional moisturizer over it and a pea sized amount of product is sufficient to cover the whole face.. It keeps my skin supple for as long as 8-9 hours at a stretch.
BI-WHITE MED DEEP CELL-WHITENING SPOT INTERVENTION
EXCLUSIVE COMBINATION OF LHA, 5 TIMES MORE CONCENTRATED, AND CERAMIDE WHITE FOR IN-DEPTH ACTION ON ALL PIGMENTATION MARKS, EVEN ACNE SCARRING. DAY AFTER DAY, PIGMENTATION MARKS ARE REDUCED IN SIZE AND INTENSITY.
5 times more concentrated*(in LHA compared to Essence), SPOT INTERVENTION combines Ceramide White and LHA to effectively combat all pigmentation marks while protecting sensitive skin.
The Bi-White Med Deep Whitening Spot Intervention comes in a plastic tube with a steel head and a small opening . The plastic tube allows for retracting when you have squeezed out too much product while the steel head feels cool when you apply the product directly on the spots.
The deep corrective spot intervention is slightly thin in consistency and and lighter in color as compared to the Essence and has to be applied locally to treat spots. The trick with this product is to not rub it over but just apply in a dab-dab motion on to the areas which have hyperpigmentation. The LHA concentration is 5 times higher than that of the essence and it claims to work on all kind of pigmentation.
Skin Concerns: Normal-Combination Skin, Breakouts once in a while (especially during that time of the month!), and a few dark spots (which I am not sure if they are sun spots or age spots and I’ve had them for 4-5 years now!)
I have used the Deep Corrective Whitening Essence for over a month now and I think it is one of the best “first layer” skin product that I have ever used. Withing a week of starting to use this product, I saw a difference in the way my skin looked everyday. The dullness in the skin was replaced by a supple healthy glow and the texture of skin looked more even than it it ever had been before. I would say the effects are very similar to the JAFRA Skin Serum (reviewed HERE), except that it works on lightening up dark spots as well.
The Deep Whitening Spot Intervention is a more concentrated version of the Essence and it helped me clear out fresh marks more easily than old marks.
There are two or three brown spots on the outer corner of my eyes, almost on the udnerside of them, and in a months’ time of using the Essence and Spot Intervention together, I can finally see them fading up a bit. I don’t know how exactly should I explain this but it seems to me that the Melanin is beginning to disperse and they are lighter than what they were before. I hope it is not the placebo effect and I am going to continue using this product for another month or until the tube finishes and if the spots disappear completely by then, I would definitely update you !
For now, I can only say that if you are looking for a complexion uplifting product only, The Bi-White Deep Corrective Whitening Essence is a great product to invest in. It visibly adds brightness to the face and works well as a daily skincare essence. Do not expect whitening benefits, I never do!
The Bi-White Deep Cell-Whitening Spot Intervention, is an excellent product to invest in if you have some dark dark spots/hyperpigmentation to deal with. According to my experience, the fresher the pigmentation/mark, the faster will be the action.
Totally recommend these two products for a cleaner, brighter skin!! Say bye-bye to dullness!
