The people over at Vichy contacted me recently for a testing of their foundation types and for a sponsored contest for all of you, my So Fash readers.  I asked my sister to help me test the products and write the reviews below. We are no make-up experts, so the comments below are purely from a consumer point of view.

And that is exactly what I will ask of you: go to the nearest pharmacy and test one of the above products and let me know what you think, if you liked it or not. Tell me your own Vichy story and you can actually win lots of Vichy products. I will choose the winner at the end of the week; you are free to comment in any language you like.

Florina with no make-up. Still pretty. :)

She has a normal/dry skin type; all of the tested products are medium colored/Sand. So here are the results:

1. Liftactiv Flexilift Teint

The Liftactiv Flexilift Teint is mostly for women over 30, to combat the appearance of wrinkles. It’s not the case here, as my sister is only 20 years old. She told me it felt a bit heavy on the face, but I liked how clean her face looked after she applied it.

Flo also gave props to the Vichy make-up remover, she loved it a lot and said it was very easy to remove the make-up with and that the skin felt very soft afterwards. You actually get a free make-up remover with any foundation purchase from Vichy. Pretty great, right?

2.Normaderm Teint

Pros: covers imperfections very well.

Cons: too liquid compared to Aera Teint Pure, also feels heavier on the face.

3. Aera Teint Pure

Pros: creamier and feels very light on the face.

Cons: none. The Vichy Aera Teint Pure foundation was her absolute favorite!

Anca Buzea and AloModa also tested and wrote about Vichy.

Conclusion: testing foundation products is very fun, so go ahead and take your sister or your best friend to the nearest pharmacy and ask for the available Vichy foundation testers and then come back here and leave your comments below describing your experience.

The loveliest stories will win!

Nu stiu de ce, dar niciodata nu am achizitionat un FDT de la Vichy. Probabil am fost putin reticenta din cauza preturilor, desi pana acum nici nu m-am uitat ce pret are. Cel mai probabil nu am facut-o deoarece am fost intotdeauna fidela primului fond de ten, iar altele nu m-au mai interesat.

Dar astazi, cu ocazia acestui concurs, dar si ptr faptul ca am vazut FDT-ul in shop-ul meu preferat, am incercat in sfarsit un nou fond de ten: Vichy.

La prima atingere mi s-a parut putin ciudat, deoarece este cu mult diferit de fond-ul meu de ten, dar la a doua, toate convingerile mele au disparut. Pana acum, credeam ca e normal ca un fond de ten sa iti lase fata putin uleioasa, sau sa fie putin vizibil. Am zis ca asa sunt toate.

Ei bine, este al doilea FDT testat de mine si tot al doilea, dar si ultimul pe care il voi achizitiona.

Hihihi, concurs! :) m-am bucurat sa vad ca testati exact produsele mele preferate asa ca nu m-am putut abtine sa nu las un comentariu. Desi nu eram adepta fondului de ten pentru ca imi simteam in permanenta fata incarcata si daca mai ai si un ten cu probleme fondul de ten este exact ceea ce nu ar trebui sa folosesti! Norma Teint de la Vichy m-a facut sa-mi schimb radical opinia, mai ales ca am un ten mixt foarte pretentios care are nevoie de produse nici prea grase nici prea slabe. Sunt foarte multumita pentru ca acopera bine imperefctiunile si nu lasa tenul incarcat, se absoarbe foarte bine asa ca nu exista pericolul sa arate ca o masca si in plus mai are si factor de protectie solara 20 ceea ce este genial! Eu sunt foarte incantata, tenul meu este mai luminos, are o culoare placuta si uniforma si imperfectiunile sunt mai greu de observat.

Well, I use Vichy for a couple of years now, as my doctor recommended it. I have a mixt skin type, so this product is light but also does its best in covering the unwanted spots. :)

I will definitly wannt to try the new Vichy foundation as it’s light on the skin and highly recommended.

So, sign me in for this contest!

Thanks!

Eu folosesc de multa vreme produsele Vichy din gama Normaderm. Am tenul mixt spre gras si pot sa spun ca ma ajuta.Produsele pe care eu le folosesc regulat sunt : gelul de curatare, tonicul si crema anti-imperfectiuni. Am fost la un pas sa-mi achizitionez si fondul de ten dar farmacista mi-a recomandat altul asemanator:(
Poate data viitoare !

Diana on 06.10.2010

&Issa poti sa povestesti cum ai inceput sa folosti produsele Vichy, poate castigi acum fondul de ten ca sa ai toata gama :D :D:D

Am testat acum 2 luni un FDT Vichy. Ma dusesem la o farmacie pentru a lua absorbante si doamna farmacista s-a gandit sa-mi faca ziua mai buna si mi-a oferit si o mostra din fondul de ten Vichy Liftactiv Flexilift Teint. L-am folosit chiar in ziua aceea si mi-a placut pentru ca acoperea imperfectiunile chiar si utilizand un strat subtire, fara sa risc sa am fata “tencuita”. Am fost multumita pana cand m-a lovit canicula acelor zile de august si a trebuit sa folosesc apa termala, tot de la Vichy (sunt fana), pentru a imi hidrata tenul.

Eu folosesc de aproape doi ani fondul de ten NormaDerm pentru ca este perfect pentru tenul meu. Inainte am incercat destul de multe si nu eram multumita pentru ca am un ten cu probleme si mi se parea ca orice fond de ten mai mult inrautateste situatia si nici macar nu acopera suficient.Normaderm acopera uimitor de bine fara sa para o masca si nu-mi luceste fata. Si ca bonus, nu imi mai apar cosuri atat de des :)

laura on 07.10.2010

Chiar interesant subiectul asta mai ales ca Vichy cred ca este pe departe FDT preferat.Prima oara am “facut cunostinta” cu el intr-o revista,il primisem ca mostra.M-am indragostit pe loc de el mai ales pentru ca nu era uleios si se intindea perfect pe fata ramanand cu fata neteda aproape perfecta dara a se vedea ca as folosi fond de ten.Bineinteles ca mi-a luat ceva timp pana sa il gasesc in magazine(tinand cont ca stau intr-un oras mic)dar in cele din urma dintr-o greseala facandu-mi cu ochiul intr-o farmacie.Cam aceasta ar fi poveste mea si a lui.:D

issa on 07.10.2010

Diana, buna idee !:) Nu sunt eu prea norocoasa…dar cand termin fdt actual imi cumpar Vichy. De incercat, l-am incercat in farmacie. Acum sa revin la inceputuri :D
Primul produs Vichy l-am cumparat la recomandarea medicului dermatolog – Capital Soleil factor 60 – si tin minte ca am mers dupa el in Ungaria…nu stiu de ce:( asa a zis medicul. Asta se intampla cu mult timp in urma si am devenit dependenta de acest produs. Eu stau f. mult la soare si mi-au aparut f. multe pete pe fata iar daca nu am emulsia in poseta intru in panica…Acum am 50+ , nu am mai gasit 60 dar cu el am inceput. Ulterior am descoperit si gama Normaderm anti-imperfectiuni(cele mentionate in postul anterior) si ma inteleg bine cu ea.
Cam asta-i pe scurt povestea mea Vichy ! ;)

Hey :)
I bought the Liftactiv Flexilift Teint some months ago, as I needed a good foundation, but I picked the wrong shade unfortunatelly (it was also the only shade they had in the drugstore). I did not use it for long and even thought of giving it away until I read a tip on a beauty blog. This particular tip stated that you should combine your foundation with your day cream in order to get a light formula and a closer color to your skin tone.
I did and I was extremely happy. So now I love my Vichy foundation and I don’t have to give up on it even if it is a darker color.
Hehe.

Diana on 15.10.2010

@Birminghamlady, thanks so much for the tip. I actually noticed that you can better apply the foundation on your skin if you used a day cream first, but I will see if it also changes it’s color a bit. Was not really careful, but now that you point it out I am actually curious to compare :) Thanks!

Birminghamlady on 16.10.2010

hehe, cu placere :P

Silvia on 24.04.2011
