Where have you been all my life Vichy Idealia Serum?

*This review contains a product sent for review*

What does ‘Behavioral Aging’ mean to you?  It didn’t mean much to me until I saw Vichy’s newest serum, the Idealia Life Serum.  If you need a more formal definition:

‘Behavioral aging is the visible result of everything our skin is subjected to, whether through our lifestyle, behaviors, or the environments in which we live.”

Hey guess what? Your daily activities……they show up. ON YOUR  SKIN….and they show up differently on everyone.  These ‘enemies’  that accelerate aging can include:

-lack of sleep

-pollution

-stress

-unbalanced diet

-lack of exercise

-hormonal imbalances

-UV rays

-dry weather

Vichy Idealia life serum (LR2412+LHA) claims to give an even and illuminated complexion, refined looking pores, and rested facial features.  This serum promotes “good skin behavior.”  After applying, skin should look radiant and fresh, better in 8 days, and even better in 4 weeks.

This particular ingredient LR2414 is derived from jasmonic acid (yes, jasmine) and is inspired by the repair process of jasmne in its natural state, which responds to aggressions by secreting a repairing acid.   It accelerates epidermal repair and improves the skin’s ability to protect itself.  Let’s get it on my face already!

LR2414 + LHA:  this is a first time coupling-LHA is a derivate of salicylic acid that stimulates cellular renewal in tired skin.  It improves the quality of skin by increasing the reflection of light on the surface of the skin.

So, these 2 active ingredients improve the skin texture by acting on the skin surface!

So of course, I had to get my hands on this…..I haven’t had a full nights sleep in about 5 years!  I wish I was kidding.  Before I get to my thoughts about the product, a bit more about the product itself:

1.  has a light, non-greasy texture that also acts as a barrier to protect the skin from the evils it may come into contact with throughout the day.

2.  light, delicate floral hypoallergenic scent-it is  light but *please* note-fragrance sensitive people, there IS a fragrance.

3. formula is ideal for sensitive skin

4. 30ml is $59.00 CAD

Thoughts-after using for 2 weeks:

1. Scent is quite pleasant….I actually want to put this on my face partially because of the scent.

2.  packaging is pretty, but it’s glass so be careful! Love the pump dispenser…..for serum, that’s ESSENTIAL

I have seen a difference in my skin’s texture after using it for 2 weeks. Immediately after I apply the serum, my skin feels firmer, and it appears brighter.  I have noticed that it allows my moisturizer to apply SO much better and penetrate deeper.  My skin feels fresh after using.  Overall, I am happy with this product.  I do realize some may be a bit intimidated by the price….but to be honest, this serum functions like many of it’s higher end competitors for a much lower price point, making it entirely worth it.

If you’re still skeptical, many drugstores have testers….try it out on your hand and walk around for a minute or two.  It’s a great product, and one I’ll use until it runs out.  I’m anxious to see what my results will be after 8 weeks!
