Vichy Idealia Life Serum

Hello lovelies!

This is one of the excellent example of where all you other Beauty Bloggers are a terrible influence on me and my poor bank account. I recently purchased the Vichy Idealia Life Serum after hearing so many rave reviews about it online from other bloggers. I have a small confession to make, I have never used any serum before. If I'm honest I never really understood the point of them and never seen the benefits, but after reading a lot about this particular one it really stood out to me and I knew I had to try it.  It is said to be designed for the everyday woman, helping with the things that take the biggest toll on our skin in everyday life such as stress, late nights, bad diets, pollution and exposure to UV rays. The stress part really intrigued me, because when I'm stressed my skin really pays the price so that really sold it to me and I knew I had to have it. 

So €38.50 later (ouch!) I had it and I have been using it every evening since and sometimes in the morning as a base for my make-up. On first impressions I really love the packaging. It's pink which obviously wins me over but it feels really luxurious and expensive. It has a pump on it which makes application all the easier, one pump and I'm done! The product itself is white in colour with a pearl sheen to it, but once applied to the skin it is invisible. It smells gorgeous and again really luxurious! I find one I apply this it really does make my skin look brighter and healthier. Like I said I use one pump, it sinks in really quickly which is great because you can use it as a base for under make up if you like or just use it on its own.  It can also be used under or instead of a moisturiser, some nights I just stick with this because I find it gives my skin enough moisturisation on its own and I don't feel like adding another layer.

I really do love this product and it's fit in perfectly with my skincare routine and has become an excellent addition! It's available online to buy here if you are interested!
