New! Vichy Idealia Life Serum / Product Review

A new era anti-aging skin serum, Vichy Idealia, transformed my skin to having more radiant, fresh complexion regardless of my stressful lifestyle, giving my skin a second chance!

What is it? Idealia is a tool, the 1st lifeproof skin idealizer, that is meant to keep the damage to a minimum.  As a result of research and years of observing Women's behaviour, Vichy has developed this new serum to fight the enemies of an ideal skin quality: lack of sleep, pollution, unbalanced diet, lack of sport, hormonal imbalances, uv rays, and dry weather. Sounds too familiar! All of these factors are detrimental to my skin, especially lack of sleep and... yes, alcohol.

What kind of skin can benefit from this product? Dehydrated, exposed to smoke and pollution, overstressed skin, and skin affected by an unbalanced diet.

How does it work? It uses jasmonic ( as in jasmine ) acid derivative molecule - inspired by the repair process of jasmine in its natural state. The molecule, LR2412, accelerates skin repair and improves its ability to protect itself. When couples with LHA, a derivative of Salicylic acid, the skin's complexion, colour and texture become improved. Ah, renewed epidermis sure sounds like a dream come true.

The serum is also a radiance primer, enriched with golden and red pearls, it allows for the ideal colour of skin to flourish. It is best used morning and evening, followed by moisturizer and your regular makeup routine.
