Vichy Normaderm Anti-Age Review: Savvy Skincare

Vichy Normaderm Anti-Age

When I first read the blurb about Vichy Normaderm Anti-Age I felt like this product was speaking directly to me. I found myself nodding along in general agreement and stopped just shy of shouting AMEN TO THAT across the office floor. Because this is the first product I’ve come across that is specially designed for MY SKIN – skin that isn’t exactly young but not exactly old yet either, that’s starting to show a bit of wear and tear but still sports the odd blemish or two (or twenty, at certain times of the month)…
And when this highly promising little tube landed on my doormat it couldn’t have come at a better time.  I had just revised my opinion on my skin from ‘ah sure it’s grand’ to ‘holy jaysus’ with the advent of a particularly vicious breakout on my chin,  some milia caused by a particularly rich eye-cream, a couple of stubborn open pores and the realisation that the big freckle on my face is actually a sun spot. The horror!
Tackling not only blemishes and wrinkles, but also dilated pores, dark spots and an uneven complexion, this arrived like a blessing from the Skincare God(ess?).  
Vichy Normaderm Anti-Age

Billed as the first anti-imperfection and anti-wrinkle skincare, Vichy Normaderm Anti-Age contains active ingredients like lipo-hydroxy acid (LHA) and Glycolic Acid, both used in professional dermatological peels as they act on the epidermis to exfoliate and stimulate skin renewal from within.  This little green tube of goodness also contains glucosylated Vitamin C for a smoothing anti-wrinkle effect, to tackle dark spots and provide a softer complexion.  
The pale green gel cream is lightly scented and lovely to apply – it feels refreshing and soothing on my skin. It’s also paraben-free, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic so suitable for all skintypes.  
For the past week this has replaced my regular moisturiser in my skincare routine. I apply it after serum, morning and night, and noticed a definite improvement after just 2 to 3 days. My fine lines and that stubborn dark spot are, so far, unaffected but it’s opened a can of whoopass on those blemishes and the congestion on my chin has cleared up nicely. Most noticeably, my skin looks better and less ‘tired’: my complexion is a lot smoother and more even, and when I wake up in the morning my combination skin feels matte, without that slight oiliness in the t-zone.
Launching next month,  Vichy Normaderm will be priced at €17.50 which is an excellent price for such a unique and effective product.
This, combined with Lancôme Visionnaire, could be my new Holy Grail of skincare. And ladies, that is saying A LOT.

I thought it was going to cost a fortune. That's a really good price!

I KNOW! It's amazeballs.

Claire said...

I have used this range before but not the anti age stuff & I found it really good! I may go back to it after I finish the rudiculously expensive trilogy stuff I'm using! I live that bigger boots shops (jervis st) sell it so loads of lovely points for us :-)

Janelle said...

That's not a bad price at all. It sounds like a wonderful product! I may have to try!

I just started using Origins Plantscription this past month and I have to say it is FABULOUS! I've noticed so many improvements on my skin, including with fine lines and such (am in the same place as you with wear n' tear stating to show!).

Claire, that's good to know they stock Vichy in the Jervis St Boots, I can just about get there in my lunch hour!

Janelle, it's a great product but sounds like what you're using is working perfectly for you!

SJ said...

I got sample of the normal normaderm in the chemist last when I was buying spf and I really like it! Its great for days when your skin needs a little help.
Think I will get this one in the fullsize as its sounds like what I need.

Thank you for share you expirience with Nuit Normaderm anti age :)

Hello! Are you still using that cream? How are the results after 3 months? I've tried Vichy Normaderm
Triple Action Anti-Acne Hydrating Lotion ( yes i did copy-paste the name) in the past and like with all creams with anti-shine ingredients my skin got a lot of additional congestion from it :( Maybe this one is different. I'm currently trying out that regime though : http://www.garancedore.fr/en/2011/11/22/skin/

(but only for a few days yet so can't really tell yet if it works)

I might want to try this. I have my own product for anti-aging but i think it's not suitable for my skin. It doesn't have any good results at all since i've been using that for a long time. I want to try this product.

I'm glad you found a product that works for you! I might try this one after my tummy tuck procedure. I'll go through the knife next week in a liposuction Orange County clinic.

How did it work on the pores?

Marco Phillipstein said...

Using anti-aging products are important to maintain healthy skin even after undergoing cosmetic surgery. Vichy is a good anti-aging product.

I love the product that you share and I am definitely going to use it. Thanks for sharing such a awesome product

UB said...

Is 100% gel or cream-gel?

Regards!

fluff and fripperies said...

It's billed as a 'gel cream' - definitely not 100% gel! Hope that helps xo

dentist said...

Sounds like Vichy Normaderm Anti-Age will really be worthy to try out based on the reviews that I have read. It is seldom that we have products that are as effective as this.

Jen said...

Thanks for posting this review! I have been curious about this product for ages.

I've been using this for a few weeks on my 39 yo still getting zits, but let's throw in some fine lines and sun spot now skin...I'm also pleased with the results. I love the scent!! Would love to find body lotion or perfume that smells similar! Any idea what it is? (green tea or maybe white tea)
I bought it for about $25 dollars at Ulta (U.S.).
