While lazing around this Sunday, I noticed that I have not reviewed my Vichy Serum yet. I had got this a couple of months ago. I was reluctant to buy this for its huge cost! But then I bought it and have been using since then. Did it fare well on me? You will know 😛

My Take on Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Youth Enhancing Serum:
Well, the cost and claims are definitely tall for this one. I did not have much concern with skin aging, but I somehow wanted to try a good serum and Vichy seemed a good choice for me. Vichy has never disappointed me in terms of quality and performance.
I have been using this both in the morning and night as suggested by the brand. This works as an excellent base for my sunscreen and makeup without being sticky. With the anti-ageing tag, I had thought this serum would be very heavy for the skin and oily too, but this one has changed my perception. This gets absorbed in a jiffy like a gel leaving behind beautiful, healthy and plump skin. This works as a great night cream too. I wake up with beautiful skin in the morning. In my humble opinion, I think this justifies the price tag it has come along with. As far as the results are concerned, I can say that it has definitely given a new life to my skin. I may not be the best person to comment on anti-aging claims, as luckily I do not have wrinkles yet *touchwood*. But the way, it plumps my skin, I am sure it will do wonders for wrinkles too!
Pros of Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Youth Enhancing Serum:
- No parabens (clap clap).
- Has a gel-like consistency, gets absorbed quickly.
- Livens up the skin.
- Only a little is needed.
- Sturdy packaging.
- Plumps the skin and energizes it.
- Doubles up as a night cream too.
- Suits all skin types.
Cons of Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Youth Enhancing Serum:
- None for me.
I have been in love with this serum and despite the cost; I will repurchase it again and yet again. This has impressed me a lot!
