Review | Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Light Cream

I’m just going to dive right in and tell you that I love this product and it is amazing. Why? Because even though I have dry skin, this Dynamic Hydration Light Cream is enough to soothe and hydrate my skin. I’m a tough task master when it comes to products, and I want my products to work for me. Okay, now I’ll tell you what I’m talking about…

Hydrate your skin for up to 48 hours with Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light, an intensive moisturiser that restores the balance of normal to combination skin with a lightweight touch. The innovative gel-crème contains Activ Hyaluronine™, a combination of hyaluronic acid and lipidure that is proven to infuse lasting moisture. This key ingredient is micro-encapsulated and delivered as part of a continuous system of hydration, which lasts for up to 48 hours. The fresh and quenching cream strengthens the natural protective function of the skin and soothes discomfort. The feather-light, refreshing texture of the Aqualia Thermal Cream is rich in Vichy Thermal Water, which instantly cools irritation and tightness. The lotion instantly melts into the skin without greasiness or stickiness, ensuring that skin is replenished with water.”

This review is going to be short and sweet, because I love this stuff. It does a really good job of hydrating my skin and has a silky smooth texture. It doesn’t clog my pores, and as such I have never suffered from a breakout. It has a beautiful, feint scent, and it makes my skin so soft upon application that I just want to apply it all day long. It isn’t greasy and gets absorbed in a flash. Over the last few weeks, I have been using the Aqualia Thermal light moisturiser and my skin feels softer, brighter and clearer. My skin is looking plump and amazing! And it feels hydrated!

I highly recommend this moisturiser to anyone who has normal/dry skin looking for a great hydrating day/night moisturiser. For those of you with super dry skin, you could try the Rich version. I haven’t tried it, but if it’s anything like the Light, it’s bound to knock your socks off!

Aqualia Thermal Light Cream Dynamic Hydration was the winner of the ‘Best Face Moisturiser’ in the international category at the Elle Beauty Awards 2015. So there you have it!
