Fustany Tried It: The Vichy Normaderm Phytosolution Line
I was first introduced to the Vichy Noraderm Cleanser when one of my friends recommended it to my partner because his oily skin was bothering him. He said he liked it but let's just say the cleanser bottle is still more than half full and I'm pretty sure he uses it once a month...
My Acne-Prone Skin
If you've been reading Fustany Tried It for a while you might know that I have acne-prone skin that scars and bruises like a peach. It's frustrating and heartbreaking, but I've learned to live with it. You'd think that the quarantine would help my skin glow and be close to perfect, but it's actually had the opposite effect. It seems like my skin just can't handle stress lately and it's breaking out and scarring like it hadn't been in a while. Even the products that have saved my skin before and worked wonders for me haven't been working.
Vichy Normaderm Phytosolution Cleanser Review
I didn't think anything would ever come near to my beloved Nuxe Rêve de Miel Cleansing Gel, until I saw one of the bloggers I follow post about the Vichy Normaderm Phytosolution Cleanser and that it's great for acne. I went to our Fustany Reviews Facebook group for more opinions and many people loved it as well. So naturally, I bought.
Let's just say off the bat, it's been a while that a product has worked this fast with clear results for my skin. Two or three days in, I already felt my skin being smoother, looking brighter and clearer. One week in, my scars even looked lighter! It has Salicylic Acid, which I talked about it detail before here, which makes it on the stronger end of cleaners, so you need to moisturize afterwards.
My mom didn't love it, for example, she found it to be a bit harsh. So, she uses it once or twice a week. Like any other product on the planet, it depends of your skin type. But, from my experience, honestly it says what it does on the bottle. But I'll try to check in after a couple more months for an update.
Vichy Normaderm Phytosolution Double-Correction Daily Care Moisturizer Review
When mom saw that I bought the cleanser, she told me her dermatologist had recommended the Vichy Normaderm Phytosolution Daily Care moisturizer for her oily skin. I looked at its ingredients and found that it had Salicylic Acid as well, but it also had Hyaluronic Acid, which I've decided I can't live without. I thought it would be the perfect bestie to my new favorite cleanser. I use the cleanser twice a day, morning and night, but I only use this moisturizer at night.
It's such a lightweight moisturizer, it's almost like water, so I sometimes finish off with an oil or a heavier cream. I have to say I haven't been using it long enough to tell any magnificent results, but I have noticed that combined with the cleanser I wake up in the morning and my skin is surprisingly soft, even when I don't top it off with any other hydrating product. I thought considering how light it is, it wouldn't be enough to leave my skin soft but it actually did, despite the cleanser being on the heavy side.
My skin has been really good recently and the tiny bumps and clogged pores have mostly cleared up which could be thanks to the cleanser, the moisturizer or both. I think this would be much loved and deeply appreciated by those with oily skin who are looking for the lightest moisturizer ever.
