Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep Pre-launch Review

Idealia has been one of the most popular Vichy‘s ranges since it came out. This suite of radiant moisturizers that visibly smooth the appearance of first signs of aging and make my skin radiant and healthy, has been one of my favourite ranges of all time, not only from Vichy’s, but in general. I was lucky enough to get the chance to test out all of the products in the range (except the Idealia Pro which targets dark spots, that I luckily don’t have), everything from the smoothing and illuminating daily cream, to BB cream, an eye cream and last but not least Idealia Life Serum. As a loyal Vichy user and their brand ambassador, I was thrilled when they offered me to pre-premierly test out and review their newest »member of the Idealia family«, a restorative night cream Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep.

A product like this was really missing in the Idealia range, at least for me. If I wanted something richer for my nightly skincare, the classic Idealia cream just wasn’t enough. I needed to add an additional oil or a »non-idealia« night cream. You can imagine how excited I was when they first reached to me and revealed me their newest product. Upon first sight, the Skin Sleep nourishing balm looks amazing. It comes in a 50ml darker-pink-toned jar with a mirror cover; luxurious and chic! I would much rather prefer a non-jar packaging due to hygienic reasons, but hey, you can’t have everything. What’s most important is inside! Vichy promises to rebuilt and restored skin in the morning, even if you don’t have a “normal” sleep; your skin will look fresh, it will regain it lost firmness and luster. I’ve been noticing a visible difference since I started using it and it is completely enough for my normal to dry skin type. However, I like to add a drop of serum or oil every now and then to additionally pamper my skin after some extremely intense days. Ingredient wise, it is not a powerful anti-aging cream, therefore it is suitable for women aged from 25-40 with all skin types (I wouldn’t recommend it to those with acne or extremely oily skin tough). It contains a beneficial combination of ingredients, everything from apricot oil, vitamin B3, LHA (for targeted exfoliation), caffeine and adenosine, hyaluronic acid and glycyrrhizic. The texture is just prefect! It’s a mix of nourishing balmy texture and a lightweight gel-ly one. While the scent is just divine! It has the typical “Idealia” scent, which is mainly floral but quite hard to describe (there’s supposed to be some notes green tea and jasmine in there), it’s not aggressive, which I actually prefer. To sum up, it is a lovely moisturizer for non-problematic skin and it will probably be completely enough to take care of your skin while you sleep.

A little disclaimer: despite all the amazing stuff Vichy does for me, I can assure you, my reviews of their products have always been completely honest and true. I’d never expect a sample to review that I wouldn’t believe it could work for me, that’s why you can mainly read good reviews of good products (however, I always mention the downsides as well as you might notice). I am always giving you my honest opinion, regardless of the source. At this point, I would also like to thank you all for following my blog ramblings and trusting my words. Thank you all!

    Can you explain why you wouldn't recommend it for acne/oily skin type? I have been thinking of buying this product because the lack of hydration in my skin but I do have acne and oily skin. So there for my question ;).

      I believe it could be too much for really oily and acne prone skin, so you could wake up with a greasy visage. However, I am not sure (because no one with that skin type I know tried it), it may work for you. Keep in mind it contains apricot oil – some people with your skin type love it, some don't.

      Thank you for your answer, I'll think about it. Maybe I will ask for a sample to see if this product is going to break me out or not.
