#Vichy works for me-ProEVEN for brighter skin!

I am constantly on the search for great skin care….and realized that although the majority of my routine contains medical/clinical grade products, that I do also know of some VERY effective drugstore products that I should discuss.  Options are everything, right?

One of my major skincare concerns is my hyperpigmentation, a result of my former dedication/obsession with tanning.  Since I’m older and wiser (the wiser is questionable), I now know that I have to protect my skin from the sun’s rays.

To address dark spots and uneven skin tone, Vichy has created the ProEVEN line.

Dark spots and uneven skin tone are very common skin concerns, affecting 74% of Canadian women.*
To address these growing concerns, Vichy created ProEVEN. Inspired by the latest dermatological advances in the treatment of hyperpigmentation, ProEVEN features active ingredients that have been rigorously tested for their strong efficacy, and optimal skin tolerance.

Here are the products I’ve been using from the ProEVEN line:


Brightening Cleansing Foam

For all skin types, even sensitive.

A gentle yet effective triple-action foaming cleanser. It gently exfoliates, purifies and brightens the skin tone. A perfect way to start a ProEVEN routine.

My thoughts:

I absolutely LOVE this cleanser.  I need barely ANY to make this foam up and it gets EVERY trace of dirt and makeup off my face.  The texture is light and it has the Vichy ‘fragrance.’  It rinses clean and leaves my face bright.


ProEVEN Advanced Daily Dark Spot Corrector

All skin types, even sensitive

For all women seeking to unify their skin tone, fade their stubborn spots (dark spots, brown spots, sun spots and acne scars), and reveal a flawlessly bright complexion.

My thoughts:

This is a fantastic a.m./p.m. treatment to use to brighten & lighten your sun spots.  My hyperpigmentation sits quite a bit deeper in my skin so I really have to be on the attack when treating it (to include consistent chemical peels, IPL, and microdermabrasion).  This is my extra 1-2 punch in between treatments.  It is light and slightly more liquid than a lotion with the ‘Vichy’ fragrance.



Skin with uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation or dark spots caused by premature aging, sun damage or acne scars. Suitable for sensitive skin.

Vichy’s 1st dark spots overnight concentrate, with skin resurfacing and brightening effect from the 1st morning, and effective reduction on the look of dark spots in 4 weeks.

My thoughts:

Products that work with little to no effort on my part will always get a thumbs up from me!  This is an extra KICK for those stubborn dark spots.  Proeven night is more gel-like in consistency.  In my case, I’ve noticed that my pigmentation is lighter around my eyes.

Vichy Pro-even dark spot corrector!

I received this product for review

All my skin care professionals that have looked at my skin know that I was a child of the sun…..yup, I frequented the beach, and tanning beds when I was younger. Now that I know better, I’m the sunscreen cheerleader!

But what about all the spots that I have as reminders? How do I get rid of those without going through some fairly invasive procedures?

Vichy Proeven Night is Vichy’s 1st dark spots overnight concentrate, with skin resurfacing and brightening effect from the 1st morning, and effective reduction on the look of dark spots in 4 weeks.


From the website:

Unique resurfacing technology with the highest concentration of LHA (3x more than the day formula), Ceramide Bright™ and Vitamin C. It infuses into all layers of the skin at night to act during the cells’ natural skin regeneration process for a resurfacing action all night long.

From the 1st morning: skin looks brighter and luminous.
In 4 weeks: dark spots, sun spots and brown spots look visibly reduced, skin tone looks evened with an improved skin texture and radiance.

How to use:

1. Use every night as a NIGHT TREATMENT applying a thin layer on cleansed face.
2. Use once or twice a week as a MASK, following these steps:
a. Apply in thick layer all over a cleansed face.
b. Allow product to infuse into the skin for 5 minutes.
c. Remove excess with cotton pad.

My thoughts?

I prefer using the Proeven at night, applying a thin layer on a clean face.  I concentrate the product more on the spots where I know my sun damage is most noticeable.  I’ve been using the product going on 3 weeks now and while the spots are still there, they are *slightly* less noticeable.  I also LOVE LOVE LOVE the fragrance of this product.  It’s not as heavy as other Vichy products.  This products absorbs quickly and makes my skin feel firmer (don’t know if it’s supposed to do that).
