Vichy Normaderm Total Mat Oil and Shine Control Fresh Hydrating Gel-Review

Hello everyone!

I’m going to review Vichy Normaderm Total Mat Oil and Shine Control Fresh Hydrating Gel for you all today. I have a pretty oily T-zone and I realized that my Neutrogena oil-free moisturizer was not doing a very great job of controlling the oiliness. I needed a specialized product that would moisturize and at the same time mattify my T-zone to some extent.

When I saw this product at the Vichy counter, I was tempted to buy it but I was a bit confused. (I’m a skeptic when it comes to investing on products I haven’t heard about before). By then, SA’s from several other counters had huddled around me…wielding all sorts of potions for me to try out. It was then that the Vichy SA finally decided to sweeten the pot by offering me 3 sample-sized bottles of Vichy normaderm deep cleansing purifying gel with my purchase. 3 free samples of 30ml each…the Indian in me was elated! This, combined with all the positive reviews I had read about the Normaderm range on IMBB, finally ended my dilemma.

Product Description:

A fresh hydrating gel that mattifies and leaves a clean skin sensation for 12 hours. Skin care formula with high concentration of perlite. This natural ingredient of volcanic origin has been chosen for its strong absorbing power. Combined to micro-powders with ”blotting effect” it absorbs oil / sebum and perspiration on the surface of the skin. Results: Skin is perfectly mattified.

With Normaderm Total Mat, you get the feeling of clean skin all day. Product efficacy has been proven under extreme conditions: stress, heat, humidity and physical effort. Tested under dermatological control, this formula is suitable for sensitive skin.

Vichy’s Commitment:

– Paraben-free
– Hypoallergenic
– Non comedogenic
– Oil-free
– Tested on sensitive skin
– With soothing and fortifying Vichy thermal spa water

My take on Vichy Normaderm Total Mat Oil and Shine Control Fresh Hydrating Gel:

Packaging:

A cute white squeezy-tube with a lime green screw cap. The surface of the plastic tube and outer carton are matte, which is a nice touch considering it’s a mattifying product. The nozzle is convenient and enables controlled dispensing of the product.

Consistency:

It’s a translucent, milky white gel, neither thick nor too runny. A very tiny amount is required to cover the entire face. It’s very light and gets absorbed almost instantly upon application. It has a pleasant but slightly strong perfume-y fragrance which subsides within a few minutes.

Performance:

It works! It leaves my face completely matte without leaving it dry or stretchy at all. My skin feels smooth and hydrated after its application. I especially love it in summers as that’s when my face is at its oiliest and this gel gives me a clean, matte and fresh face. I would suggest using a light moisturizer underneath it during drier weather.

Vichy Normaderm Total Mat Oil and Shine Control Fresh Hydrating Gel succeeds in keeping my face oil-free for a good 4-5 hours after which, I start noticing some shine on my forehead, nose and chin. But I’m not complaining since this is the longest I have been without an oily T-zone ever! :p

These are the cleanser samples I got with my purchase. Aren’t the bottles cute!?
