VICHY Purete Thermale Purifying Foaming water, Radiance Revealer, Rs 650 / 50 ml,
You all must already know about my love for skincare by VICHY. I really can't rave enough about their products, especially since this is the brand that pulled my skin back from the rough patch that I was going through. It has been more than 3 years I have been using products from them, and have literally tried all of their products from all the lines and my favorite so far has been the LiftActiv Line. Anyway, sometime back, while I did some shopping from the brand, the SA was generous enough to hand me over this bottle of the facial cleanser as a GWP and I'm glad that she did.
The VICHY Purete Thermale Purifying Foaming Water is basically a clear watery cleanser that comes in an attractive pink bottle with a pump dispenser. As you pump, the water is dispensed as foam. The bottle is plastic and super sturdy. I have traveled with it and there have been so mishaps so far. Touchwood!
The packaging mentions that the product is paraben free and for sensitive skin, and honestly, for someone with skin like me which breaks out at every opportunity, this is god sent. I have found most facial cleansers too hard for my skin. The ones that I have really really liked are too few, like the Faces Foam Away Mousse Cleanser. I love foaming cleansers for they are a delight to use and need minimum effort. Simply for the ease of usage, I'm going to give this product some extra brownie points!
Coming to the efficacy, well, I never completely rely on face cleansers to take off my waterproof makeup, so makeup removal beforehand is a must for me. Once that is done, this foaming water by Vichy takes care of all extra dirt and grime on the face and washes them away with utmost ease. Two pumps of the product on your palm and some gentle massaging on the face is all that you need to do.
Once the foma is washed away, you get fresh and radiant looking skin, minus any dryness or irritation. I have mostly normal skin these days, though sensitive, and this cleanser has never caused any allergic reactions on my face. It has a soft delicate scent that I like. The perception of scent is different for different people and I'm not quite sure how someone else might react to it.
Overall, the VICHY Purete Thermale Purifying Foaming Water is a great product for normal to combination and/or sensitive skin. It cleanses effectively without any dryness or irritation and is simple and easy to use. Available easily, this is by far one of my favorite facial cleansers.Highly recommended for sensitive skin!
