Vichy Idealia Life Serum Review

Remember I talked about this a while back? I promised to review it in slightly more detail so here it is. The serum is actual like a light lotion as it comes out white instead of the clear gel formula and instantly hydrates the skin on application. It doesn't only give superficial luminosity but you can actually feel the skin to be plump and softer to touch. I like how it has a pearlacent pinky sheen to it which cleverly works at making dull skin appear more radiant. If you don't get enough sleep at night like myself, are a work hard party harder kind of a person or just have a hectic lifestyle that keeps you on your feet, I feel this serum works for all.

I still haven't decided if I like to use it at day or night but I feel due to its light moisturising properties, it would work well during the day as well. As it absorbs in quickly, you can easily slather moisturiser on top and then some foundation to fake a good nights sleep and skin that's well taken care off. The pearlacent sheen I was talking about resembles that of MAC's Strobe Cream in my opinion so if you find that a little too thick, this one's a good alternative if you're older and want to incorporate some skincare benefits whilst adding some radiance.

I think it retails around the £30 mark which is not too pricey for a serum at all. I know most start at a £40 plus price tag making this a good one to add to your addition if you're new to serums. Oh and this didn't break my combination skin out by the way. I would think it works for all skin types besides too oily.

Your description reminds me of the Caudalie Vinosource serum in the consistency although that doesn't have any pearlacent sheen to it.

@Shruti - Really! I need to try out more Caudalie skincare in the future.

@Joanne - Same here! Helps a tonne at faking a well rested face :)
