Vichy Essentielles Skincare Review

Just before Christmas Vichy sent me some products from the Essentielles range. I know you have probably seen lots of reviews of these products by now but I just wanted to use them for a longer period of time before I gave you my opinion on the products.

The stand out of the 3 for me has been the cleanser. A negative is that there are no instructions on the packaging at all. It comes out of the tube as a very thick and sticky liquid and there is no way I was just slapping that on my face! I have found that the best way to use it is to put some in your hand and then mix it with water which turns it into a nice foamy liquid consistency. I have found that it does a great job at removing makeup, including mascara and eyeliner. I have found that it stings if it gets in my eyes so I make sure to keep them firmly closed!

The Moisturiser is nice, its a light cream and absorbes fairly quickly, I have combination dry skin during the winter and this has done a good job at keeping my flakey winter skin at bay. I have been using it twice daily since Christmas and I am almost at the end of the tube now.

The Body Moisturiser is the product that I have used the least, I am not overly fond of the scent which I find stronger in this than the other products. It's not that its a bad product and it does it's job well I just have other products that I prefer.

The Essentielles range is available at Lloydspharmacy and is very reasonably priced. I would definately look at re-purchasing the cleanser and facial moisturiser. These are my opinions on the products and obviously my experience is based solely on my skin.
