In a word: fabulous!
I recently tried Vichy's Idealia product for the first time courtesy of Crowdtap and I could not be more pleased with the results. I was lucky enough to be asked to host a Vichy sampling "party" which meant that I had five other sachets to give out to family and friends.
I provided my mother, sister, aunt, sister-in-law and mother-in-law with a sample of Vichy.
My mother, sister, and I are all pretty pale (read: IRISH) with combination skin. My sister has a bit more oil issues than my mother and I do. My sister-in-law and mother-in-law have more of an olive skin tone than we three. Their skin falls into the combination category of oily and dry, especially depending upon the seasons!
I tried Idealia for 8 nights as requested per Crowdtap and Vichy's instructions. From day ONE I could feel a difference in my skin. It was smooth, sunk right into my face and pores without leaving any awful slimy feeling that can sometimes come from facial products (a major pet peeve of mine). My skin felt so SOFT afterwards! I LOVED touching it (even though we all know how much of a no-no that is!) I could feel it on my skin THE NEXT MORNING! It was such an incredibly good feeling to wake up without having that sort of dry feeling you get with other cremes. My face still felt quite moisturized even after a night of sleep - lovely!
My family members had similar results:
Mom: "I thought it was great. I've been on this planet a lot longer than you, honey, and I've had time to try them all. You know how much I love my Pond's Cream thanks to Grandma, but I have to say, this could be on my Christmas list -- I'll have to ask Daddy!"
Sister: "Well, considering the fact that I've tried tons of products from the dermatologist because of my acne issues, I have to say that although I was inititally worried I might get a bad reaction to the cream, it was pretty nice. It smelled really good. I wouldn't say I had insanely perfect skin afterwards, I mean, I will always have some acne, but I definitely liked how my skin felt when I used the Vichy stuff!"
Mother-in-Law: "This product is amazing! Light, airy, my skin felt so smooth and fresh after using this creme for the 8-day trial! It was nice that I didn't need to use a LOT of the product to have the same nourishing effects on my skin night after night. I'm definitely going to invest in some Idealia!"
Sister-in-Law: "I thought it was great. I'm going to be honest, I didn't have time to put it on EVERY night -- you know how it is with two babies -- sometimes I just forgot to use it, BUT, the nights that I did, I could definitely tell a difference in my skin. Thanks so much for letting me be one of your product testers! This was a great product to try out!"
Well, there you have it, all! A pleased Crowdtap Party indeed!
Til next time...
