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?
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!
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!
