This time with my Normaderm day cream, I bought Aqualia AntiOx Pro-Youth Antioxidant 24Hr Hydrating Fluid too as an addition for my anti-ageing regime.
A little info about the Aqualia antiox range from Vichy:
Skin Type: All skin types, especially sensitive skin.
Action: The origin of young and fresh looking skin lies in the creation of new cells. Daily aggression from UV rays and the environment damage vital substances that help create new cells. Around the age of 25 skin can begin to appear dull with signs of fatigue, fine lines and pigmentation contrasts.
For the first time ever, Vichy uses a combination of active ingredients including Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Pure Citrus Polyphenol to help protect against oxidative stress, so that cells can retain their regenerative potential.
Vichy has identified the extraordinary potential of Pure Citrus Polyphenol, a nearly 100% pure antioxidant, to help protect skin from daily oxidation by environmental aggressors.
Active Ingredients :
Pure Citrus Polyphenol
AQUALIA ANTI-OX ideal for women aged 25-35 years who have begun to notice signs of aging and who seek younger looking, smoother and more radiant skin.
(Information taken from their UK site)
The range includes 3 products; a face serum, eye roll-on stick and a moisturizer. The roll-on stick is missing from the picture, probably introduced later. As for the availability, I could not find the serum or the eye roll-on stick in Health and Glow. They told me that it would be introduced in India after two months. Anyway, on to the review.
What the Company Claims about Aqualia AntiOx Pro-Youth Antioxidant 24Hr Hydrating Fluid:
All skin types, even sensitive skin. AQUALIA ANTI-OX Deoxidizing Pro-Youth 24Hr Hydrating Care uses, for the first time, Pure Citrus Polyphenol, a pro-regenerative antioxidant. It acts as an antioxidant by helping protect and renew surface skin cells for younger looking skin. Comparable to Oligo 25 Anti-dull Skin Hydrating Care. Skin appears to have a healthy glow. It appears more radiant and smooth, and the complexion appears more even.

Pros of Vichy Aqualia AntiOx Pro-Youth Antioxidant 24Hr Hydrating Fluid:
• It gives me that extra dose of antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin E.
• It has definitely helped me with uneven skin tone around my mouth and nose.
• My skin looks more radiant, plus this has a dewy finish to it.
• It contains SPF 12 UVA+++, which in addition to my sunscreen provides ample sun protection.
• It did not break me out!! I thought probably because of vitamin E and the Shea butter, it might break me out, but it did not!
• Its texture is amazing and gets absorbed nicely into the skin.
• It definitely hydrates for 24 hours, I did not feel like using an additional moisturizer.
• The packaging is in a tube form, which is better than jar packaging.
• It has a light citrus smell which is very pleasant, but does not stay for long.
• It did not give any redness and perfectly suited my sensitive skin.
• It acts as a good makeup base too.
It has little tiny-winy beads.
Notice the dewy finish, I just love it!
Cons of Vichy Aqualia AntiOx Pro-Youth Antioxidant 24Hr Hydrating Fluid:
• The price is on the higher side.
• Flip-top cap would have been better.
• Since this comes in a tube, I would have to guess how much product is left.
Otherwise, I really like this product and it is a nice addition to my Vichy’s Normaderm moisturizer. I would suggest this for all skin types who would want an additional dose of antioxidants and to prevent or lessen signs of ageing.
