Vichy Idealia Life Serum | Review |

The change in season has affected my skin this year more than most other years, It seemed to look a bit dull, lifeless and lacking radiance. I have seen a couple of bloggers and You Tubers mention Vichy products before but i have never delved into their range until i came across the Vichy Idealia Life Serum in Boots, It promises to restore radiance in stressed out skin which I liked the sound of. 

The Packaging of the serum is really nice, It’s a shimmery pink glass bottle which looks really experience with a pump that dispenses the right amount of product for the face.

I have been using this serum in the morning after cleansing and acid toning, I use 2 pumps for my whole face an neck followed by my light moisturiser. The serum is a light cream with very small shimmery particles in the formula to a create a luminous effect, Don’t worry they are really small shimmery bit so you won’t look like a glitter ball. The texture of the cream is really silky and glides onto the face without stickiness or effort, it sinks into the skin for a great hydrated base for my makeup. The days i use this serum (Which is most days) I find my skin looks a lot brighter and more healthy for spring summer.  On a side note I absolutely love the fragrance of it – its a really fresh smell that is not too over powering! 

I bought mine from boots for £31.00 (Serums are always that little bit more expensive as they have active ingredients that often cost more) I have seen it from for £26.00 which is a little cheaper. 

I would defiantly recommend this if you find you want your skin to look more radiant, however it might not be strong enough if you have really dry skin. 

Have you tried anything from the Vichy range?
