Vichy Normaderm Range | Review

“Vichy Normaderm, the first port of call for women who battle with oily skin. Normaderm technologies reorganise the cells for a healthy skin in 4 weeks: skin quality is transformed and imperfections are absorbed.
Cleansing and exfoliating products for a clearer skin and numerous specific treatments.
The Vichy Normaderm collection is ideal for women aged 20 to 30 concerned by skin imperfections: blocked pores, irregular texture, localised shine, redness, and dilated pores.”

[all italics material courtesy]

I am a big fan of French Pharmacy products, specially Vichy, La Roche Posay, Aderma and Ducray. I have been a regular user of Vichy’s Normaderm rage since my college years. During those days my skin was much oilier and pretty acne prone. Now, although the acne is gone, and my skin is no longer oily, I still keep my stock of Normaderm with me.

The range contains roughly 6-7 items. I generally use these four:

Vichy Normaderm Nuit Anti Imperfection Night Cream –

“Transform your imperfection-prone skin as you sleep with the Vichy Normaderm Night cream, a nourishing night-time treatment.
The innovative formulation limits hyperactivity of the pores, making them contract night after night with Pore-Targeting Technology and Zincadone A™. By morning, the skin is regulated, purified and clarified, with a more uniform appearance.
Massage into the complexion at night after thorough cleansing, avoiding the eye contour. Use Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care as a follow-up during the day. The ultra-absorbent cream can be used on even swollen and irregular skin textures.Allergy tested. Tested on acne-prone skin under dermatological control. Non-comedogenic.”

This one is an emulsion i.e more concentrated than a cream. It is basically for correction texture and uneven skintone. This is a product I use only when I have blemishes on my face or if my skin needs to be disciplined. Price – £13.00 for 50ml, available in India in 30 ml packaging for INR 900.

Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel – 

“Cleanse your imperfection-prone and oily skin with the Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel, a lightly scented, purifying daily wash.
The caring formula ensures clear skin with salicylic acid concentrated at 0.5%. Totarol, a new purifying ingredient , inhibits the proliferation of propionibacterium acnes, which are the bacteria responsible for acne. Eperuline, a new soothing ingredient of natural origin, regulates inflammation. Glycyrrhizinate Acid soothes skin and helps reduce redness.
Twice daily: wet face, work product into a lather and massage onto face avoiding the eyes. Rinse well. Pores are deeply cleansed and unblocked with a double purifying and anti-irritant action.
Allergy tested. Soap free. Tested on sensitive skin under Dermatological control. Non-comedogenic.” 

A soap and paraben free foaming gel. Nothing special, what I like is that it is devoid of harmful ingredients and gives me a squeaky clean face. Plus it kind of feels like an extremely gentle and safe face peel. It does make pores smaller from first use itself. Although you can find cheaper alternatives of it. Price £11 for 500ml or INR 990 for 200ml.

Vichy Normaderm Total Mat Fresh Hydrating Gel – 

“Ensure a perfectly matte complexion with the Vichy Normaderm Total Mat, a new and improved version of the fresh hydrating Normaderm Pro Mat gel.
The lightweight formula has a ‘blotting’ effect on the skin, which works to soak up excess sebum, oils and even sweat. This is achieved with Perlite, a naturally occurring substance that has a very high absorption rate, and the micro-powder Polytrap, which leaves a smooth and soft texture on the skin’s surface. Added Vichy Thermal Spa Water soothes and fortifies the skin, making for a smooth and hydrated complexion,
You’re left with shine-free skin, even in extreme conditions of heat, humidity, and enhanced exertion. The complexion is plumped and smoothed with a dry touch finish.
Apply daily to clean and dry skin. Avoid the eye area. Paraben free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic.”

My favourite product of the range. This hydrating gel is a master multitasker. It works perfectly good for an oily skin. For dry skinned people facing oily bouts during rainy season or while traveling to an area of high humidity, this is magic. It keeps your skin hydrated, while keeping in check excess sebum and sweat. Hence, it also works perfect as a makeup base/primer. Infact, it has been my goto makeup base during every weather change, summer and rainy season. I swear, you do not need a primer with this. It keeps makeup in place and extends foundation’s stay. Price £13.00 or INR 1250

Vichy Normaderm Nettoyant Tri-Active Cleanser+Scrub+Mask –

“Regulate your complexion with the Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1 Cleanser, Scrub and Mask, an all-in-one solution for oily skin.
When skin produces too much oil and becomes overburdened, clogged and imperfection-prone, it needs gentle care to make it feel fresh and comfortable again. The Normaderm 3-in-1 combined cleanse, scrub and mask action is made up of ultra soothing agents and deeply clarifying clay, making it perfect for even sensitive complexions.
The Normaderm cleansing cream reduces the appearance of imperfections, clears impurities and eliminates excess sebum. Lather onto your damp face and then rinse off with plenty of water. Alternatively, use the cream as a daily scrub to unclog pores, and make the texture of the skin more uniform. Lather up and rinse away thoroughly.”
To use as a mask, apply in a thick layer and leave on for 5 minutes. Rinse away thoroughly for a matte and clear complexion, making sure to avoid the eye contour.”
This one though my least favourite, works pretty well. Actually, I am not a fan of scrubs, I do not like to rub anything grainy or sharp on my face. I am not saying scrubs are bad, but they are just not for me, or maybe I have not yet found a good one. This one works as a cleanser, that is, use it like a face-wash, Scrub, for it has exfoliating grains and lastly, the manner I use it frequently, Mask. Absolutely absorbs the oil from your skin. Keeps matte even the oiliest of skin for a day or two.
Price £11 or INR 990
