Spring Beauty Essential: Falling in Love with Vichy Idealia Life Serum

Vichy Idealia Life Serum & Creme de Lumiere Lissant
After yet another brief hiatus from the bloggersphere, I'm back feeling inspired, refreshed and more motivated to create new content on my little blog (apologies in advance for the iPhone quality imagery though..). 
Maybe it's the fact that today was the first day of Spring, but it's undeniably easier to create blogs when it's actually light still by the time you get home from work - hallelujah!

And Spring is exactly what the topic of my comeback blog is about. Well, not exactly Spring itself, but the effects that the change in weather have had on my skin, and how I've been combating it.

So I don't know about you, but I find that the moment a new season begins to turn, my skin has a complete meltdown, and it's usually just as I've cracked my skincare regime - annoying! I have pretty sensitive, dry skin, and over the last few weeks have found that my Clarins products just weren't cutting it (no hate at all to Clarins, they took care of my face through the harsh winter months, but the change in weather calls for a new arsenal of beauty products). After experimenting with the vast array of lotions and potions I've been hoarding in my cupboards, to no avail, I decided it was time to head to Boots in search of something that, would not only smooth my dry skin, but brighten it too. After all, don't we all lust after that dewy glow the moment the sun begins to shine again!

It was there in Boots I stumbled upon Vichy's Idealia Life Serum. There's no denying I was captivated by the iridescent, unicorn-esque packaging, but I was also intrigued by the products claims. 

'Spectacular transformation on skin quality, even on: Skin affected by stress / fatigue, overexposure to the sun, pollution / smoke and an unbalanced diet.'

(The unbalanced diet definitely resonated with the multiple Dominos orders I've placed in the last couple of months!) 

It also claims that within 4 weeks your skin will appear visibly refined, rested, healthier and younger. And though I've only been using the product for a little over a week, I've already begun to notice the effects of the product. Teamed with Vichy's Idealia Creme de Lumiere Lissant, my once parched skin is not only quenched, but visibly more even. I can't even begin to say how impressed I am with how much easier it's made the application of my foundation too. In fact, it's made such a difference I'm considering switching from Estée Lauder's Double Wear foundation, to Double Wear Light - which for a die hard DW fan, is a huge deal!

Obviously I can't go into great detail about either of these products because I really haven't used them enough to give an official verdict, but I am seriously impressed with the results so far, and can't wait to see what my skin is like in a few weeks from now. 

If you've used any of Vichy's products before and can recommend anything in particular, let me know below - I'm always up for discovering new skincare products!

Until next time..
