My skin goes a little crazy when the weather changes, and when I travel. Here in Canada the weather has been warm, cold, rainy and occasionally snowy, so I’ve been battling the conditions when it comes to my skin.
I also just travelled to New York City and for some reason being on planes tends to make my skin break out, and/or I get strange rashes or irritated patches after travel! It’s really frustrating knowing that it’s going to happen, and being unsure as to why exactly, and how to prevent it.
Over the last few weeks I have been calming my skin with Vichy’s Aqualia Thermal Extrasensitive Soothing Ultra-Calming Care cream.
It has a fresh fragrance, and it has a medium-thick consistency. I tend to get rashes around my chin, and I had one when I started to use this cream. Sometimes I worry that fragrant creams will irritate my sensitive skin, but it didn’t happen that way in this case. It felt great to apply to my face, and it was not irritating to my skin.
I would cleanse my skin at night, and then I would apply a small amount to my face and neck. I also applied it in the morning, but to be honest I don’t cleanse in the morning (I know, it’s horrible!) so I would just apply it when I woke up,and then applied my makeup.
I didn’t have any issues with it bothering my skin or causing it to break out – it actually did quite the opposite and was very soothing.
The formula includes highly concentrated in Vitamin B3, and Vichy Thermal Spa Water. It is a very hydrating cream! It isn’t so thick that my skin would get oily, and because of it’s consistency it was easily absorbed into my skin.
It’s preservative, paraben, alcohol and colourant free. I really love that it only pumps out what you need for a single use. You really don’t need much of this cream for coverage, and it’s in a great air-tight container.
I have been using it every day since I received it, and my skin seems very happy about it!
