Skin Type- Combination to Oily; Sensitive Skin – No
Vichy made a lot of noise recently with the launch of the Sleeping Mask. I have been using it for my oily/combination skin. Read on to know how it fared for me.
Price – Rs 2350/-
The range employs metabolic whitening with powerful active ingredients that work in harmony with each other to give Asian women the three dimensional fairness that they strive for – flawless, luminous and radiant skin. The 1st whitening sleeping mask three times more effective1 that works overnight for a dewy, brighter and fairer skin.
Skin Type: Normal
• Dull complexion.
• Sensitive skin.
My Experience with Vichy Ideal White Meta Whitening Sleeping Mask:
The packaging is attractive and sturdy at the same time. As the tub is made of glass it is not very travel friendly. There is a mirror on the cap and it is very cute, but not really necessary. The details about the product are mentioned on the outer paper carton it comes in.
The texture of the cream is like gel with white beads in it. It applies super smooth and the beads melt while massaging the product on the face. It is very satisfying to me as I like feeling the beads on the skin and then getting dissolved. I think the pricing can be justified as a little goes a long way. There is a typical cosmetic smell to the cream which is quite pleasant to my sensitive nose.
Coming to the effectiveness of the product, I would say, this works like a magic when used as a sleeping mask. I apply a thick layer on the skin and massage till the beads melt and keep it like that. Most of it gets absorbed by itself in some 20 minutes or so; the remaining has to be massaged in for complete absorption. When used like mask I wake up with happy-skin. It feels all plumped-up, bright and rejuvenated which I love! But when used as a night cream I find the effectiveness to be pretty average; you don’t get to see amazing results from such an expensive cream.
For me it is a great sleeping mask and I am NOT going to use it as a night cream. So if you are looking for a regular night cream, this might not be the best pick; but as a sleeping mask it is SUPERB!
