Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream


When it comes to skincare most of us start the year saying we want to invest more into it, that we should spend more on skincare than we do on make up. Well that may be how I felt last year, but when it comes to serums and creams, the things I use daily, I don't want my products to have a massive price tag. Honestly I think that just makes us use products sparingly when how long we want a product to last should not come into play when looking after your skin. Some of my favourite brands like Estee Lauder and Lancome retail their face creams at silly prices and whilst this may not be the cheapest product from the drugstore this is an amazing cream that you can happily use without having to save up to re-purchase. 
So on with the review; if you have dehydrated or dry to combination skin like myself then this is really worth a try. It has a non-greasy formula that sinks instantly into the skin that means you can apply this just before your make up and it will not affect the finish of you foundation, or look like you have applied a hydrating product at all. This actually seams to target the dryer areas of the skin balancing them to achieve an all over normal skin type. I like to use this in combination with the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum *review. Both products contain glycerin, which will encourage your skin to absorb more water, so applying the serum before the cream will really help to keep your skin hydrated.
If you are not prone to dryness there is also an Aqualia Thermal Light Hydration cream available, this will still keep your skin hydrated but the lighter cream will be more suitable if you have combination to oily skin. Both creams retail from £17.00 and can be purchased in most larger Boots stores and online here, but as most British retailers have neglected to list them, head over to vichyusa.com for a full list of ingredients.
