After hearing so many positive reviews about Vichy’s products, I decided to get one of these for myself. I have oily skin which is so prone to breakouts, so I have to be extra careful while selecting my cosmetics. Since I knew Vichy’s products were paraben-free and good for sensitive skin, I ordered Normaderm cream from one of the e-commerce sites about a fortnight ago. Let’s take a detailed review of the same.
Product Being Reviewed:
Vichy Normaderm Anti Imperfection Hydrating Care.
INR 590 for 30 ml. It comes in a white and green plastic tube with a nozzle at the top. The tube packaging is good but about the nozzle, I will reserve my comments for the time being.

My Take on Vichy Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care:
Well, I have already described my skin type above and how difficult it is for me to choose a product, but I can safely and surely say that I can’t find a better cream than this. It is a white-coloured gel like cream which gets absorbed into the skin within seconds. I have been using this cream only during night and when I get up in the morning, my skin feels hydrated and supple. With continuous usage, the skin has also started to show evenness. My skin had lost the smooth texture because of the outburst of acne :cry:, but this cream seems to be doing a great job for my face. It gets completely absorbed in the skin and you are left with a matte feel , only a small quantity is needed, so 30 ml would last me for 20-25 days.
The ingredients list though mentions perfume but there is no fragrance whatsoever, if at all there is, it is extremely mild and almost negligible.
About the packaging, the small tube seems very handy and travel friendly, but the nozzle at the top keeps emitting the cream on its own. Unless I put the cap back, the cream does not stop to come out. I faced the same issue with one of my dermatologica creams also. This product is non-comodogenic, so it won’t clog the pores and hence oily-skinned beauties can pick it up without a second thought. Needless to add, it never broke me out.
All in all, I am in love :love: with this find of mine :jalwa:
