My new ‘Product of the Week’ is Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme!
Fortunately I don’t have deep wrinkles (yet) however this serum also improves tired features, uneven complexion and signs of fatigue which I definitely do have!
I (like most women) feel like my skin looks worse in the evening than it does in the morning and Vichy are also addressing this issue. While they say it takes 10 days to start noticing an impact on wrinkles, it only takes 10 minutes for the product to make skin look smoother and softer. It therefore acts like a primer too – as it keeps your skin and your make up looking good all day.
Hyaluronic acid seems to be extremely popular in anti-ageing products at the moment and this is because it hydrates, plumps and heals the skin. Rhamnose is another key ingredient which strengthens the skin and also has a smoothing effect.
LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme comes in a solid silver 30ml bottle. To dispense the product you press the button on the lid and one drop will be released from the wand (it’s actually a tube but I think ‘wand’ is a nicer way to describe it). You need approximately 4 drops to cover your face and I put one on my forehead, chin and both cheeks before massaging it in. I recommend wiping all the excess product off the edge of the wand before applying it as you will find it drips otherwise.
The texture of the serum is a watery gel and it soaks in extremely easily leaving no residue. It really does have an immediate smoothing effect and your skin will feel silky pretty much straight away. This means it is perfect as a makeup base.
My skin type is ‘combination’ and I’ve been applying it every morning and evening and haven’t needed to apply a night moisturiser with it. It does have quite a strong fragrance however although I have sensitive skin this hasn’t been an issue for me.
I wasn’t looking for a reduction in wrinkles however I definitely needed something to smooth and even out my complexion and this definitely ticks those boxes. I also think my foundation stays fresh looking for much longer.
Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme retails at €36 and is available in pharmacies.
