Vichy Liftactiv Retinol Ha Concentrate ~ #Review

Last month, my daughter had her birthday and I always feel older than the day of my actual birthday.  I guess it is because watching her blow out her candles makes me wonder where all those years go.  As those years tick by and I feel myself having more back pains, sore muscles, and being very forgetful.

Vichy Lifeactiv Retinol Ha Concentrate

It is funny how my daughter always keeps asking me how old I am.  I was telling her that I am so old that I eventually need a cane.  Then she asked how old her father was and I told her that he is ancient.  Then she said "19?"  I said alot older than that but she didn't believe me because she actually believes that being 19 is old.  That reminded me that 21 was old when I was only 16.

Even if I am getting older I never want to actually look older than I am.  It is those unfortunate skin conditions that we call wrinkles which appear like acne.  One minute I had smooth skin and then I see a shadow of wrinkles forming on my face.  Vichy understands what we need so they spent 11 years of research to develop a new product - Liftactiv Retinol Ha Concentrate.  It is a new generation of wrinkle-filler treatment where it helps reduces the appearance of wrinkles.  It adds a layer of moisturizer to help plump up the skin and fill into the wrinkles.  This is one of Vichy's most extensive anti-aging research with 5 studies, over 400 women in 2 continents.

Vichy created a formula to combine retinol and LR2412 which are anti aging ingredients.  They delay the maturation process of epidermal cells to provide increase thickness of the epidermis for visibly plumper skin and smooth out wrinkles.

It has a light weight texture and was quickly absorbed into my skin.  It didn't leave a greasy feel or any bad odors.  It is gentle on my skin and easy hydrates my skin.  It could be worn underneath my makeup or on its own.  400 women have tested this product for one and two months and most noticed their skin felt smoother, looked less tired, and reduced the appearance of wrinkles.  It is even suitable for sensitive skin.  It is known to also work well with Vichy Serum 10.  Nobody likes wrinkles on their face so the faster we treat it the faster it goes away so hopefully it does not appear at all.  This Vichy Liftactiv Retinol Ha Concentrate is like one big eraser to remove all sign of aging.  Maybe one day I might be asked for my ID to see if I was over 25 again.  My mother would love this product.  She is always looking for new anti aging products to try.

Vichy Liftactiv Retinol Ha Concentrate (30ml, $49.50) is available in drug stores that sells Vichy products.

  1. Will you update us on the results?

  2. I've heard really good things about this product. I can't wait to see your results!

  3. When I was little, my mom made us lie about her age. Only by a year though lol. She looks younger then she is but probably because she takes care of her skin. I should definitely start using products like this.

  4. Wow sounds like a great product thanks for the awesome review :) rafflecopter name Treen Goodwin

  5. I've never bothered with things like this, I'm old and that's it :-) I do have a cousing who's over 80 and doesn't look a day over 60, wish that was in my genes too.

    Vichy has a really good line of products and by your review it sounds like Vichy has another good product in their lineup

  7. My daughters have always looked young for their age, one daughter had to show her ID when buying alcohol and astonished them by being a doctor - and at this time she was 34!
