Get better skin in 8 days

What if I told you your skin could look better just over a week from now? I’m talking improved texture, more even skin tone, refined pores, a refreshed complexion….the whole nine yards.

I know that my first reaction would be to roll my eyes and move on. I’ll admit that when Vichy Idéalia Life Serum landed on my desk, I was pretty skeptical. I wasn’t sure I really needed a product quite like this but opted to give it the old college try since, really, I can’t resist a serum.

I’m glad I did – after my first application, I saw improved skin texture and luminosity. After 8 days, I was shouting from the rooftops. A few weeks later, I’m still raving about the serum which is why I’m writing about it today. 8 days to better skin. This is the real deal. My only regret is that I didn’t take a “before” photo.

Vichy Idealia Life Serum Review

In an ideal world, we would all get 8-10 hours of sleep, live a stress and pollution-free existence where we eat a balanced diet and work out the ideal amount. We wouldn’t be subject to hormonal imbalances or UV rays or dry weather. Unfortunately, that’s just life. Every day, we’re faced with these factors that will impact the quality of our skin. I can tell you right now that I was impacted by almost all of those factors yesterday.

Vichy Idéalia Life Serum is clinically proven to work on skin under extreme conditions: overstressed, UV-rays exposed, pollution/smoke exposed or affected by an unbalanced diet. Again, if I hadn’t seen this work for myself I wouldn’t believe it for a second. This serum, essentially, can “undo” that extra glass of bubbly you had last night, preventing it from aging your skin.

Vichy Idealia Life Serum Swatch Review

Vichy Idéalia Life Serum is a silky smooth and creamy serum that effortlessly absorbs into the skin, leaving behind a luminous pearlescent glow. As you can see, the golden and red pearls glisten on the skin in a subtle, beautiful way. Once massaged into the skin, all that’s left is a smooth, plump, illuminated surface. This non-greasy protective film protects the skin throughout the day. As someone with super-dry skin, I’m always excited by any product that delivers instant moisture. This does the job and then some.

The second I put it on, my skin brightens up and looks refreshed – one of the reasons it made my list of must-haves for sleepless, stressful weeks. 30mL retails for $59 CDN making it a bit of an investment, but one that is very worthwhile. The pea-size amount swatched above is enough to cover and illuminate your whole face. Vichy Idéalia Life Serum is available in drugstores across Canada.

Would you give this serum a try?
