I hate the feeling of dry skin. It irritates my body. If the lotion is not thick enough it does very little hydrating my skin. I hate to constantly reapply lotions when I just applied some on a second ago. Depending on the season I change up my lotions depending on what my body needs. Lately I am a big fan of Vichy Ideal Body Serum-Milk and the Ideal Body Balm.
It is just too bad Vichy Ideal body cream does not give me the "Ideal Body" by helping me shed 20-30 pounds of my body weight by applying the cream. However, it does give me the ideal body of smooth, healthy and hydrated skin. The Vichy Ideal Body product is to help women achieve their best skin.
I love the Ideal Body Balm. It is rich and creamy, perfect for my very dehydrated skin. Fall and winter makes my skin ridiculously dry so I like to slap some the balm in the evening and immediately my skin feels hydrated. It absorbs quickly but temporarily leaves a slight sticky feeling on my skin then it goes away after it has been fully absorbed.
This Balm combines LHA, hyaluronic acid and the benefits
of 10 fundamental oils, resulting in greater effectiveness.
Continuous hydration, firmer and smoother skin, and more
even skin tone.
With its compact, buttery appearance, this balm’s texture
will surprise you. Upon its first contact with the skin,
the balm is transformed into a sensual, melting cream,
which produces a “cocoon” effect. As a “cushiony balm”
of enriched ingredients, it reinforces the firmness and
smoothness of the skin and results in an improved skin
The presence of Shea butter enhances the nourishing and
soothing properties of this especially moisturizing balm.
The Ideal Body Balm’s thick and creamy texture makes it
the ideal choice for dry and very dry skin types.
The Serum-milk has a light and gentle texture. It is creamy and absorbs quickly and leaves my skin non greasy and hydrated. This is a perfect lotion for this summer.
A valuable combination of LHA and hyaluronic acid, with
10 fundamental oils. Skin is more moisturized, nourished
and smooth. With daily use, this “radiant care” product
transforms the complexion and skin tone is improved. Its
hydrating power continues and, in time, plays an active
role in improving the skin’s elasticity and firmness, as
demonstrated by the results of the clinical tests.
The Ideal Body Serum-Milk is made up of hyaluronic
acid polymer of high molecular weight (generally used,
in the same concentration, in the Vichy skin care serum
products) and a new sodium polyacrylate polymer.
This product is hypoallergenic, highly protective and is
suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.
This skin care product has an innovative texture - between
milk and serum – which is characterized by the liquidity
of its emulsifying gel.
After just one application, the Ideal Body Serum-Milk
provides an immediate feeling of freshness, without
sticking to the skin. This Serum-Milk is infinitely gentle and
has a subtle floral fragrance, fresh and amber-scented.
Both products have a scent I am having trouble describing. I am not sure but I think they have scents of cucumbers. It said it has a floral scent but I didn't notice it. It is light and not over powering.
This fragrance has been carefully developed to minimize the risk of allergies.
