My take on the product
Having heard a lot about Vichy Normaderm range of products for oily acne prone skin, I picked up this night cream few weeks back from Violetbag.com. This is my first Vichy product and I can say this is one of the best skin care products for oily acne prone skin I have found so far!
The product comes in green colored tube packaging with a thick screw on cap. I quite like the packaging – it doesn’t too clinical or dull and neither does it look too flashy. It looks like a professional product that delivers what it promises.
The texture of this product is somewhere between a light cream and a lotion. It absorbs into the skin with light massage to give a nongreasy yet hydrated looking finish to the skin. I generally apply the product in small dots and spread it with my fingers till it absorbs. The peculiar thing about the texture is that while spreading the product and massaging it into the skin, one can feel very fine micro particles in the cream, maybe something the size of clay particles. I do not know what that is but since its not abrasive, I do not have any issues with it. Upon absorbing, it gives a clean hydrated look to the skin.
I have been using this product for a little over 4 weeks now and I have observed the following changes in my skin :
- the large pores on the nose and inner cheeks appear smaller
- the texture of the skin looks more even
- the acne marks have lightened to considerable extent
- skin looks less oily and more hydrated
- breakouts have reduced (not eliminated completely)
- skin appears more uniform, cleaner and glowing
- does not prevent acne completely , I still have breakouts but they are less frequent
- does not heal acne
It is not a quick fix remedy for sudden breakouts nor does it heal pimples completely but it does make them less frequent. It improves the texture, suppleness and look of the skin while making it more hydrated, more even,glowing and less oily. Most products meant for oily acne prone skin type dry out the skin completely and this is a welcome change from that! Even the most drying products used to make my skin oily overnight. I used to wake up the morning with a horribly oily face but this products has changed that! I now wake up to just some oiliness around my T-zone and the rest of the face looks clear and clean. Also, the improvement in skin tone can be seen right from the first application.
There is a chance that it may not have the same effect in everyone’s skin but I would still recommend the product to all combination/ oily acne prone skin type women. I would personally repurchase this!
Vichy Normaderm products are known to be excellent for oily acne prone skin types and Normaderm Night Chrono-active anti-imperfection care does not disappoint! Its a light weight creamy lotion that helps in decreasing large pores and evens out the skin tone by decreasing post acne marks and pigmentation. It improves the texture, look and feel of the skin without dehydrating it. With regular use, it has made my skin more uniform, glowing and hydrated and the breakouts have become lesser and smaller.
I highly recommend this product to all combination/oily acne prone skin types. The product is worth the price and I would definitely try out more products from the Normaderm range.
