It feels like quite some time since I've written a review. I've been a tad busy with school lately, and I find hat reviews can be a bit tedious to write when I'm tired! Current state of mind= listening to old Lily Allen songs, and eating vanilla ice-cream on bed. Sure what else do us teenagers do?
Right, back to the review! I received* this serum at the official launch in Dublin weeks ago, which you can read about here, but I wanted to give it a proper try before writing this review. First things first- I have never actually owned anything by Vichy before this! Well, I've had the few samples, but not full size products. I've also actually never used a serum. Before attending the launch, I always presumed that that serums were typically for older skin. But I was wrong!
The Vichy Idealia Life Serum is a "skin idealizer", that claims an "even and illuminated complexion, refined looking pores and rested facial features". It's suitable for all skin types, including sensitive, and better yet- ITS PARABEN FREE! For those of you who don't know what parabens are- they're specific nasty things are in most skincare products, and most of the time cause no harm. MOST of the time. The serum smells absolutely heavenly. I realise that scent means nothing but I can't help it! Roses and jasmine are the first things I think of. Its pearly white in colour, with tiny bits of shimmer inside, and its very easy to apply to the face. Iadore the packaging too- pink holographic, what more could a girl want?
The serum itself has most definitely changed my skin over the past few weeks. It states to help skin within 8 days, which I think is a tad far fetched! I applied it one in the morning, once in the night. My skin looks brighter, less tired and definitely alot smoother. Although I can't say if it helps with ageing ~ I am only 15..~ my mum also tried it out, and she loved it too!
