Thanks to the drier fall weather, 8-hour plane rides and my hectic schedule, my dehydrated combination skin has been acting up more than ever! Not only did it get super dry and dull, I also developed a small flaky patch close to the jawline on the left side of my face – gross I know! Lucky the folks at Vichy came to my rescue and sent me two awesome products from their Aqualia Thermal line.
The Aqualia Thermal Serum 24 Hr Fortifying Moisturizer ($29) is a super lightweight moisturizer that combines 15 minerals for continuous hydration. Like what you would expect from a serum, it is a clear, slightly runny fluid that gets absorbed into the skin instantly. It never feels greasy or heavy on my skin and it works beautifully even under makeup! I have been using this for the past 2 weeks and not only did my skin go back to looking supple and soft but my flakies? Completely gone!
The Aqualia Thermal Eyes ($26), which is a clear gel with tiny blue beads for the eye area, contains Detran-Sulfate to help decongest undereye bags, Escin to increase microcirculation and Vichy’s Thermal Spa Water to help hydrate, soothe and reinforce fragile tissues. I did not see any major improvements in my undereye circles but it definitely managed to keep my eye area hydrated and puff-free. I love using it in the morning for an instant pick me up and my concealer goes on really smoothly on top of it too.
