Is Vichy Normaderm Night Detox Anti-Imperfection Clarifying Care the Best Night Cream For Oily Skin?
Hello Pretty Ladies,
Vichy is a brand which I have always inclined towards, when it comes to skin care especially their “Normaderm” range which is a boon for oily skin beauties. I have been using their Normaderm Night cream for more than 2 years now and had no intentions of changing it for a few more years’ as well. With the same intention, I stepped into their outlet one day just to find that the night cream which I had been using since so long discontinued. I was devastated! The SA there immediately took this “green beauty” off the shelf and raved that the Vichy Normaderm Night Detox Anti-Imperfection Clarifying Care was a replacement to the older formula. Read on to find out if this lived up to my high-set expectations.
What the company claims:
Normaderm detox night – for the 1st time, a treatment that works against the overproduction of sebum and toxins night.
Effectiveness: Overnight oily sebum and toxins accumulate causing imperfections and poor skin quality. Oily skins are “dirty skin” and wake up with a dull complexion. The normal skin produces less toxins and sebum and remains “clean skin.” Upon awakening: clear skin, pores tightened, refined skin texture, glowing complexion. Tolerance: Does not sting and does not irritate. Well tolerated by the skin, comfortable, and suitable for sensitive skin.
900 INR for 40 ml.
My Take on Vichy Normaderm Night Detox Anti-Imperfection Clarifying Care:
The long, sleek, and sturdy green color tube looks absolutely chic. The product dispenses through a nozzle and is completely mess-free. Overall, the packaging is ideal to travel with. The moisturizer has a consistency which falls between a lotion and gel. On blending, it does thin down even further, but it does take a while to completely sink into the skin. It’s a transparent lotion and the fragrance of it is very mild or almost negligible. Once completely absorbed into the skin, it makes your face look slightly shiny but not greasy at all. This can be overlooked for what results it delivers.
I was really disappointed with this product during the first two weeks since it did almost nothing to my skin at all except for making it slightly even. But oh-my-God moment came during the third week of using it. It was a pretty hot day and even after spending the whole day without any blotting, my skin remained fairly fresh and less oily. This was huge for an oil tank skin as mine and I knew the very moment it was not the primer but this night cream which did the magic.
It has been more than a month now and I can definitely tell that this is the best night cream I have used so far. It minimizes pores, reduces the oil production 😛 and evens out the skin making it look radiant.
Having said that, it is not heavily moisturizing and hence not suitable for dry skin types. This product is best suited for combination to oily skin. Till now, it has not caused any irritation or breakouts, thus suits sensitive skin as well. Therefore to be on the safer side, I have already got one back up tube :P.
It does not claim to provide any anti-aging benefits, but I have observed that it makes my skin feel slightly firm and even, so that’s a plus.
Summing it up, this is the best night cream I have used so far. Be it in hotter or cooler months, it effectively delivers what it claims. Oily skin beauties, go grab this!!
Lastly, summing up the pros and cons:
