My Experience with Oshea Herbals NeemPure Anti Acne & Pimple Face Pack

Oshea Herbals NeemPure Anti Acne & Pimple Face Pack | Cherry On Top

I have been using Oshea Herbals NeemPure Anti Acne & Pimple Face Pack for the past couple of weeks and I am in a love-hate relationship with this face pack. I love it because of the natural ingredients and effectiveness but I hate it for it feels heavy on my face when I put it on. I find it difficult to wash off of my face. It also takes longer to dry completely than any other masks. It takes around 20-30 minutes to dry.

But, on the brighter side, it freshens up the skin. You can feel the freshness right after washing it off. It makes my skin brighter and adds a little glow to it. It doesn’t make the skin fairer as it claims. I haven’t seen any signs of acne or a pimple (not even the customary pre-menstrual one) since I have started using it. I use it twice a week at night.

If you love to have a face pack with all the benefits of natural ingredients like neem, tea tree oil, aloe vera and cinnamon, that too within budget then you can try out this face pack by Oshea Herbals.

My Experience with Astaberry Neem & Aloe Face Wash

I love neem-based face washes a lot. I feel they cleanse the face from within and give me a glowing healthy skin. I have been using this Astaberry Neem & Aloe Face Wash for more than a week and I feel I have noticed a few differences in my skin after I started using it. Astaberry Neem & Aloe Face Wash has the benefits of Neem, Aloe Vera, Basil and Lemon. Neem soothes irritation and prevents acne. It is rich in antioxidants. Aloe Vera is a natural moisturiser, it works to alleviate the effects of UV radiation, hydrates and softens the skin. Basil has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that purify the skin. Lemon is a natural source of Vitamin C, it clears and tones the skin.

I am quite happy with the results considering the price of the product. It can be termed as a good face wash within budget. I would recommend you guys to try it out.

The only thing I didn’t like is the long list of chemicals used in it.

So, let’s start-

My Experience with VLCC Neem Face Wash

VLCC Neem Face Wash Review | Cherry On Top

As I mentioned earlier, I have been using it for the past couple of days twice a day and I have seen my skin improving after washing my face with it. I know it is too fast to review a product within two days of time but I could do it as I don’t have any acne on my skin right now. At the moment, my major concern is oiliness which VLCC Neem Face Wash has been handling quite effectively.

Talking about the benefit of this face wash, we need to know the benefits of its key ingredients that is Neem, Tea Tree and Chamomile-

Neem, the most effective, easily available ingredient that has been used by every woman in India since time immemorial. Neem has antibacterial properties which help cure acne, reduce acne spots and scars and prevent breakouts. Also, it works on skin rashes and blackheads. I remember my mum used to soak neem leafs in a bucket full of water during summers and we used to bath with that water. It helped in diminishing rashes and prickly heat.

Chamomile is known as an anti-ageing agent for your skin. It also works wonders on skin irritation.

Tea tree, another great ingredient for your skin. A correct amount of tea-tree helps you get rid of acne or lighten acne scars. Tea tree is an anti-fungal agent that works on any infection. Its anti-oxidant property leaves the skin look and feels fresh and rejuvenated.

With my first wash, I knew that this is a good cleanser for combination skin. This product lathers up so well despite being a soap-free face wash. It takes out all the dirt and grime and excess sebum from your skin leaving your pores to breathe. It keeps oiliness at bay for a long time, for about 4-5 hours which is a boon for ladies with oily skin. As I do not have much acne on my skin, I cannot comment on the pimple prevention point. But, after using it twice daily for two days, it has reduced that one pimple I have on my forehead which I am very happy for. It leaves my skin soft, supple and oil-free after every wash. Also, the skin feels fresh and looks glowy. Seeing that, it can be called the best face wash for women.

It smells so fresh, quite like neem. VLCC Neem Face Wash is nature in a tube.

Hi, guys! If you follow me on my social media then you must know that I attended a #VLCCStyleStatements session a few days ago. VLCC  is India’s leading wellness brand that is the one-stop destination for all your skin and hair concerns. They have various beauty services and personal care services. Also known for their weight loss services, VLCC has several therapies and treatments for beauty and wellness using natural sciences. In this post, I am going to talk about the VLCC skin treatments.

At the event, we had Mr Rohit Murgai, Head- Beauty Sales, VLCC Healthcare who discussed with us various beauty treatments that VLCC has to offer. We got to know about various usual services like Vampire Facelift, Medavita Treatment, Kerafusion Treatment, Microblading and two new treatments that have been introduced in VLCC, Kolkata i.e. Ionic Detox and Cryofreeze Therapy. I’ll elaborately talk about each of them later. Also, read till the end to see if your questions have been answered!

Different VLCC Skin Treatments

Microblading

Most of us must have heard about Microblading, but despite that, we are not much familiar with the term. Mainly because the treatment is not easily accessible and not many places in India have this facility at this moment. We were being informed about this process by Mr Murgai when we got to know the difference between Microblading and Eyebrow Tattoos. Microblading can be called semi-permanent makeup. In this process, pigments are inserted into the epidermis, whereas in tattoos, pigments are inserted deep into the skin. We were lucky enough to have witnessed a Microblading session up close during our event. The expert had a pen-like tool with which she was actually drawing some hair-like strokes on the client’s eyebrows. This process takes almost up to two hours to complete depending on the thickness followed by a touch-up within a couple of weeks. We were told that these pigments last for 15-20 months. VLCC is a trustworthy place to stop by for microblading in India, mainly because they have the best experts.

Ionic Detox

Mr Rohit Murgai told us about the two new treatments that have recently been introduced to VLCC, Kolkata. One of them is Ionic Detox. In this therapy, the client goes through a pedicure which sucks out all the toxins from different organs of the client’s body. The description sounded was quite interesting. We were told that the colour of the water in the pedicure tub changes from transparent to black, green or muddy brown depending on the organs that release toxins.

Cryofreeze Therapy

Another thing that is new to VLCC, Kolkata is this Cryofreeze Therapy. This is mainly an anti-ageing therapy that gives you an instantaneous glow. This is a 20-minute session in which your body temperature is taken down to sub-zero level to constrict your blood vessels. Now, when the temperature is black to normal, the blood gushes back to the entire body giving it an instant tightness, glow and it also instantly reduces the appearance of your fine lines. This therapy is another intriguing one.

Now, we were requested to ask our questions to Mr Murgai and he answered all of them with a smile. I am going to list down Mr Murgai’s answers to the question that you had asked me on Instagram and Facebook. Most of the cures included cosmetological help.

1. Remedy for Hair loss

Firstly, Mr Murgai made it clear that hair loss is curable at any age. There are different therapies that you can try out like Medavita or Mesotherapy in which certain proteins and vitamins are infused into your scalp. Else, you can go for hair transplant, hair patches and toupees or Polydioxanone Threads which is an advanced solution of Androgenetic Alopecia in which hair strands are thread embedded into your scalp.

2. Remedy for Frizz

The more humidity, the more frizz. At VLCC, they have a treatment called Kerafusion that is a keratin therapy for hair. In this process, your hair is given a coating of Kerafusion which makes it more manageable. Another thing is called Velour that is an advanced, in-depth Medavita treatment that is a re-energizing frizz-reduction treatment.

3. Remedy for Open Pores

You need to go through a daily CTM (Cleansing-Toning-Moisturizing) routine. Exfoliate your skin on a regular basis. Use a scrub that has walnut, avoid those that have small beads. There is a tool called derma roller that helps to reduce the appearance of open pores. You can also take help of collagen-based products that helps fill in the pores from within. One of the VLCC skin treatments include Vampire Facelift which is great for treating open pores, as well as dark elbows and knees.

4. Remedy for Dark Circles

Dark Circle happens because of the lesser blood circulation under your eyes. You need to increase the microcirculation there by getting yourself a proper treatment. You can go for a vision energy treatment or you can try eye cell treatment which is best for deeper dark circles. The only thing to consider and remember is that dark circles never go away completely, a treatment can only lessen their appearances.

Dr Das speaking about facial aesthetics and how botox and fillers work on the skin

We were also introduced to botox and fillers by Dr Das who is a very skilled dermatologist. Those are very common ways of improving one’s facial aesthetics and slow down ageing. Also, one very important thing that I have learnt there is that everyone person is born with a different skin type. So, we all need a skincare that is tailor-made keeping that particular skin type and skin conditions in mind. If two people have oily skin that doesn’t mean that the oil-free products that suit one will also suit the other. We need to get our skin tested to find the best products according to what our skin needs.

The event ended with some healthy snacks. The #VLCCStyleStatements session was very informative and enriching. I as well as you got to know about a lot of things. I hope you liked knowing about the VLCC skin treatments as much as I did.

Disclaimer: I was invited by VLCC, KOLKATA to attend the bloggers’ meet.

When we are young, we don’t value things in life as we believe that we can get away with anything. Growing up, we learn so many things that actually benefit us in the long run. For me, it was skincare. Skincare was the thing I paid no heed to. The reason behind it was undoubtedly the lack of knowledge. The moment I started learning about things that do and don’t benefit my skin, I started taking my skincare quite seriously. In fact, I started a proper basic skincare ‘routine’ just a couple of years ago.

It took me years to understand that my skin has some special requirements that need to be taken care of. I was lucky that I had not caused any severe damage to my skin. But, not many are fortunate. That is why I wanted to share the mistakes I made when I was younger so that you who are still teenagers learn from them. So, here we go

1. Washing Your Face At Least Twice a Day

7 Things About Basic Skin Care I Wish I Knew When I Was Younger | Cherry On Top | In this post, I wanted to share the basic skin care mistakes I made when I was younger so that you who are still teenagers learn from them.

Talking about basic skincare, the one common thing I can think of is washing your face. People who don’t follow any skincare routine, at least wash their face religiously. But, do they do that twice a day, are the most likely to forget washing their face at night? In most of the cases, yes. People wash their face in the morning for a dose of freshness but as the day proceeds, they start to become tired and lethargic which leads to skipping the nighttime skincare.

This practice is definitely a no-no if you want to have clearer and healthier skin. During the day, your skin surface gathers dirt, grime, sebum and what not! You must get rid of those impurities before sleep to prevent those things from clogging your pores and producing acne.

Make sure you are using a cleanser that is meant for your skin type. Use a gentle/mild cleanser if you have sensitive skin, an oil-free foaming cleanser if you have oily skin and a hydrating, soap-free cleanser if you have dry skin.

 2. Scrubbing is Essential

7 Things About Basic Skin Care I Wish I Knew When I Was Younger | Cherry On Top | In this post, I wanted to share the basic skin care mistakes I made when I was younger so that you who are still teenagers learn from them.

Speaking of clogged pores and acne, how can I miss the part that is often overlooked but really important in basic skincare. Exfoliation is a must for your skin, no matter how much you neglect it. Scrubbing your face at least twice a week makes sure your skin gets rid of all the impurities and dead cells which will result in an even skin surface. When your dead cells are removed and new cells are uncovered, you know that all the toner, serum or moisturiser that you use actually goes into the skin instead of stopping there on the outer surface. Exfoliation also helps unclog your pores, helping it breathe properly.

If you have oily skin then you must not skip this part. People with oily skin have more open pores because of which they secrete more sebum. If you don’t exfoliate your oily skin religiously then the impurities will clog them which will result in breakouts.

Remember to exfoliate and not over-exfoliate your skin.

3. Moisturise Your Face No Matter How Oily It is

7 Things About Basic Skin Care I Wish I Knew When I Was Younger | Cherry On Top | In this post, I wanted to share the basic skin care mistakes I made when I was younger so that you who are still teenagers learn from them.

One thing that I have been doing wrong all my life is not moisturising my face during summer. It’s not too long ago when I actually changed this practice. Every single skin-type needs proper hydration. If you don’t moisturize your face, it will reflect more signs of dullness, ageing and fatigue. The drier your skin, the more chances of appearance of fine lines. Now, people with dry and normal skin cannot think of moisturizing their skin. It’s the people with combination to oily skin type who often skin the moisturization part thinking that oily skin does not need hydration, especially in summers.

Just because your skin looks greasy doesn’t mean it’s properly hydrated. People with combination to oily skin use products that help control the secretion of sebum and make your pores shrink so that it secretes less oil. In this process, we actually make it dehydrated. You definitely need a dose of hydration to make it healthy. You should use an oil-free moisturizer for your skin.

4. Don’t Rub Under Your Eyes

7 Things About Basic Skin Care I Wish I Knew When I Was Younger | Cherry On Top | In this post, I wanted to share the basic skin care mistakes I made when I was younger so that you who are still teenagers learn from them.

This is another thing that I have learnt so late. Now, I want to warn you while you are young so that you don’t make the same mistake. The skin under our eyes is extremely delicate and thin. It gets thinner as you age. Rubbing them can cause irritation, it can also accelerate the appearance of fine lines under your eyes. This is something we don’t need at all. I have spent the majority of my life rubbing under my eyes for removing that stubborn kajal and it has caused me a couple of baby-fine lines there.

You should always use a good eye makeup remover to remove your makeup so that you don’t end up rubbing it. Take some makeup remover onto two cotton rounds and press them against your eyes for 10 seconds and gently wipe the makeup off of your eyes. You will see how easily it removes your eye makeup, even the intense ones.

Applying eye cream is a must for as you start ageing the skin under your eyes tends to sag and also becomes thinner. You need some firming eye cream to help tighten the skin. Take the eye cream onto the tip of your ring finger and gently dab it on the under-eye area. The ring finger is advisable because it produces the least pressure. If you are not concerned about ageing skin or fine lines, you can always use a brightening eye cream for obvious reasons. Our under-eye area tends to get dehydrated, so we need to give it a boost of moisture. Try and make it a part of your basic skincare.

5. Don’t Go to Bed with Makeup

7 Things About Basic Skin Care I Wish I Knew When I Was Younger | Cherry On Top | In this post, I wanted to share the basic skin care mistakes I made when I was younger so that you who are still teenagers learn from them.

Never ever do this! The primer or base makeup that you apply fill in all your pores, suffocate the skin and results in a massive breakout (or a few pimples). The mascara that you have on your lashes makes them weak and then they tend to fall. Make sure to break down all your makeup using a good makeup remover and then follow it by a good wash using a deep cleaning face wash. One product I can swear by is the Maybelline Clean Express Total Clean. I have already finished three bottles of it!

I like to scrub my face after washing my face to make sure that my pores are open and can breathe. This is one of the most important points to remember in your basic skincare.

6. Invest in Good Products

In skincare, what you give is what you get in return. Consider this as an investment that going to benefit you in the long run. Use good products, quality products. Don’t hesitate in spending your money (Obviously, don’t make a hole in your pocket!) on quality products. Use paraben-free products, collagen-based products for your basic skincare.

7. Always Read the Ingredients List

If you are even a little bit aware of harsh chemicals and how they affect your skin, you must read the list of ingredients written on the product that you are buying. Don’t go for products that don’t have a proper ingredients list unless you have read several reviews on those products. Avoid anything that has SLS/SLES, Paraben, Silicone, Propylene Glycol etc.

Which mistakes are you still doing?

Hi, guys! Hope you are doing well in hot and humid weather. Today, I’ll be reviewing another skincare product from Organic Harvest. You might have read my review on their Masseuscious Damage Control Face Wash. I have fallen in love with their products since then. So now, when they wanted me to try the new Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk, I readily accepted! I have been using this product for a few weeks now and I am all set to share my review with you. Let’s start-

Price- Rs 1195/- for 100ml (Buy here)

Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk for Normal Skin Review & Price | Cherry On Top

Packaging- The product comes in a bottle form with a pump dispenser that has a transparent plastic cap. The packaging is sturdy but it isn’t as travel-friendly as I would like it to be. The bottle is quite heavy and I don’t think it’a convenient enough to carry a heavy bottle along.

Key Ingredients- Aqua, Certified organic Decyl glycoside, Provitamin B5, Propylene glycol, Sodium benzoate, Potassium sorbate and Perfume. No Color Added.

How to Use- “Wet your face. Apply the product to your face in a circular motion, making sure each spot gets covered with cleanser. Keep massaging in a circular motion for thirty seconds to a minute. Rinse thoroughly.”

How It Works- The richness of natural minerals and Provitamin B5 in this fortifying cleanser soothes the skin by removing excess oil without tightening or over drying.

My Experience with Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk for Normal Skin

As I told you earlier, I have been using the Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk for the past few weeks and I can tell you that I am impressed with it. I am too picky and choosy when it comes to skincare products but this product has successfully made a place in my heart (read skincare stash). The product says that it is meant for normal skin types but it works equally great for those who have combination skin. I have combination skin, my t-zone is nothing less than an oil-field during summers. This product works wonders on me.

I had a feeling that cream/lotion based cleansers will make me more 0ily but that’s not the case for this product. It applies as a lotion but when I rinse it off my face, there’s no trace of oil left on my skin. Instead, it gives my skin the perfect amount of hydration and suppleness.

Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk for Normal Skin Review & Price | Cherry On Top

This product removes makeup quite effectively. For makeup removal, I apply it on my face in circular motions, giving it enough time to break down all the makeup and then wipe it off my face using a damp cotton round. Then, I wash my face thoroughly with cold water. One thing I must tell you guys, don’t use it around your eye area. Once I tried to remove my eye makeup with it and it burnt my eyes like hell. Never ever do that!

The Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk is free from parabens, mineral oils, animal products and alcohol. This product is very gentle on the skin. I would recommend this product to you if you have normal to combination skin and you want a cleanser that would get rid of all the makeup and impurities without dehydrating your skin.

Have you used anything from Organic Harvest?

Hi, guys! Today I am back with another skincare product review. For the last few months, I have been trying out various new products. One of them is this TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub. I am a big fan of exfoliating as it instantly makes the skin bright and renewed. Now without wasting more time, let’s jump straight into the review.

Price- Rs 350 for 100g

Key Ingredients- Pineapple, Pomegranate, Keratinase: Effectively peel and help uncover a smooth, fresh, new complexion.

Packaging- TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub comes in a regular red-coloured plastic tube packaging. The tube has a secure closer that ensures there is no spillage. The tube comes in an outer packaging made out of cardboard. The packaging makes it easy to carry around.

How to Use- You have to apply this scrub on clean, dry skin and then massage in a circular motion to roll, lift and sweep away dead skin cells. Next step is to rinse your face well. For extra enzymatic exfoliation, leave on skin for one to five minutes then rinse.

My Experience with TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub

The first time I read the product description as written on the pack, I knew I had to try it. It said, “A peeling gel that visibly rolls, lifts, and sweeps away dead skin cells when massaged onto skin. Multi-action enzymes (pineapple, pomegranate, and keratinase) along with cellulose effectively peel and help uncover a smooth, fresh, new complexion without drying, irritating, or causing undue stress to skin. It removes impurities and decongests clogged pores for a youthful, radiant look.” Their claim was so huge and fascinating that it immediately made me want to try it.

I have been trying this scrub for a week now and now I am ready to share my review with you. TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub is a mild exfoliator with fine exfoliating particles. The granules don’t cause any kind of irritation. Despite being used on a dry skin, it is not harsh on the skin. The gel spreads evenly on your face when you apply it so that it is easy to massage in. This product does not lather up.

Now, let’s talk about its effectiveness. TBC by Nature Power Magic Peeling Gel Scrub mildly exfoliates the skin leaving it soft, supple and brighter. It is very effective in removing dead cells and blackheads. Although I haven’t seen anything dramatic like ‘rolling, lifting and sweeping away dead skin’ but it definitely cleanses the face, helps unclog the pores and peels the dead skin cells off your face. This product contains β-White whitening peptides and it’s made using Nanotechnology. Honestly, I don’t know much about these. I haven’t seen any whitening effect on my skin but it definitely brightens up my face whenever I use it.

Hi, guys! I am back again with yet another post for you. A lot of you got really excited when I shared a picture of the Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask that I bought from Nykaa during their Valentine’s Day sale. I have been using it since then and I am so impressed with it that I felt the need to share my thoughts with you guys. So, here I am sharing my review on the Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask.

Price- Rs 300 for 25g, Rs 550 for 50g ( Buy here)

Ingredients- Oatmeal, Organic rice flour, Prunus dulcis (Almond meal), Juglans regia (Walnut), Ocimum basilicum (Basil), Rosa (Rose), Lavandula (Lavender), Mentha (Peppermint), Fuller’s earth, Activated Carbon, Mentha piperita (Peppermint essential oil), Piper nigrum (Black pepper essential oil), Citrus bergamia (Bergamot essential oil), Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea tree essential oil), Juniperus communis (Juniper berry essential oil)

Packaging- Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask comes in a simple transparent plastic jar with a screw-open lid. A wooden spoon also comes along with the product. The label on the tub has all the information including ingredients, usage and effectiveness. I really like the simplicity of the packaging. It looks simple but definitely not cheap.

How to Use- Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask comes in a powder form. So, you need to make a paste out of it using either water or milk. I like to use it with organic rose water.

My Experience with Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask

As I said earlier, I have been using this for the past few weeks. I use this pack twice a week and every time I use it I see visible results. I use rosewater to make a paste out of the powder. When the paste is made, you can see that it is a little crumbly. This is because of the finely milled oatmeal and almond. I apply the mask evenly on my face using a spatula and then let it dry until its semi-wet. Then, I just rub it on my face in circular motions and finally wash it off using lukewarm water. I finish it off by splashing cold water on my face.

The oatmeal and almond meal in this mask efficiently exfoliates the skin and removes blackheads. One of the two main ingredients, activated carbon, sucks out any dirt from the pores and unclog them. Another main ingredient is Tea tree oil which is really effective on acne. Its antibacterial property helps fight acne. Then there is peppermint which is great for oily skin as it controls the secretion of excessive sebum and prevents the pores from being clogged and causing acne. My skin is not acne-prone so I can’t tell you if this face pack really works on acne or not.

I would highly recommend this mask to you. The smaller size comes for Rs 300 only and you get the benefits of a scrub and a mask in one product. This is definitely a great value for money. This product is all-natural, contains no preservative and good for sensitive skin. Those who have oily or combination skin must try it out this summer. This controls excess oiliness without making the skin dry.

What’s your favourite face mask at this moment?

Hi, guys! Happy Saturday to all of you. Hope you had a great week. Today, I’ll be reviewing the night cream/treatment that I have been loving lately. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know that I had shared a picture of the Vichy Normaderm Night Detox after a few days of using it.

Now, I’ll tell you why the Vichy Normaderm Night Detox has become my favourite.

My Experience with Vichy Normaderm Night Detox Anti-Imperfection Clarifying Care

Vichy Normaderm Night Detox Review | Cherry On Top

It’s been almost 15 days since I have started using the Vichy Normaderm Night Detox and it took me a couple of days to see the results. You already know how oily my skin is especially around the t-zone. During the winter, my skin was dry but as the weather has started to change, my skin has started to become oily too. That is the moment when I started using this night treatment and it completely changed my night time skincare routine. But before telling you how it changed the game, let me tell you why is this cream important to you. Vichy says-

“At night, oily skin accumulates toxins and produces an excess of sebum which leads to the development of imperfections and bad skin quality. Normal skin produces less toxins and sebum and wakes up to clean skin. Upon awakening, oily skin shows a dull complexion and dirty look.”

This cream is meant to target the excess sebum that your skin produces overnight and it also supposedly detoxifies it. It also clears out your pores and makes them less visible. I don’t have acne issues but the occasional ones that I get haven’t made any appearance during these 15 days. I am blessed with a clear skin so I cannot really tell you if it really works on blemishes and imperfections or not but I can definitely tell you that it controls sebum. Yes, it does. I used to wake up with an extremely oily t-zone which has completely gone when I have this overnight cream on. My face looks fresher and brighter. Also, after I wash my face with a facial cleanser, my skin doesn’t feel dehydrated. The Vichy Normaderm Night Detox gives you a long-lasting moisturization. It also blurs the pores to some extent. It gives a bit cooling sensation which I think I am going to love during the summers.

I am in love with this product. This product is a must-have for those who have oily, acne-prone skin. This cream is also non-comedogenic which means that it does not clog your pores and it is also non-allergenic and suitable for sensitive skin. This cream is an amalgamation of two important technologies- Detox Technology and Purifying Technology. The combination of Eperuline, LHA and Salicylic Acid. Eperuline works as an anti-aging agent. Then there is a concoction of Perlite and absorbing powders which work in purifying your skin. I love this product and I can swear by it. I am looking forward to seeing how well it work during the hot and humid summer.

Have you used anything from Vichy yet?
