I love Chick Advisor, because they let me try out some pretty amazing products. I had never used anything from Vichy before, so I was excited to give the brand a try and start using Vichy ProEVEN Advanced Daily Dark Spot Corrector.
After a hard winter, my skin is pretty blah. I’ve been lucky because I haven’t had too many major breakouts, but due to lack of sun I don’t have much color in my face.
I started using the product over a week ago, and around that time I came down with something I have never had before – pink eye! I was afraid to use a new cream in the midst of this minor health emergency, but things got a little drastic so I gave it a try. My left cheek ended up getting very red and irritated – I am not sure what it had to do with my pink eye situation, but they seemed to be linked. My face was really itchy, so I started to use the Vichy cream to see what would happen.
Basically it soothed my skin and cleared up my red itchy patches so everything returned to normal. I was very happy to see that the cream not only soothed my itchy skin, but it went from red to that blah winter left over skin color I already had going on.
Once my skin was back to normal and the pink eye had cleared up, I continued to use the product twice daily to see what else it could offer.
I applied it every morning, and every night over my cleansed skin as instructed.
It claims to target all sources of hyperpigmentation to reduce the colour, intensity, and size of dark spots.
I don’t have many dark spots, but I do have one that recently came up under my nose (ok, I’m not good at waiting for blemishes to just disappear!) that I have been using concealer on for a while now. I wasn’t sure how to lighten it up, so I specifically targeted that area, and the rest of my face to see what results would come up.
The cream absorbs quickly, and it’s not greasy at all. It actually smells pretty good too. I would apply it all over my skin, and concentrated more on my dark spot. I could wear the cream under makeup and it didn’t make it slide around at all!
Since using the cream my skintone has been much more brighter and even. I was really surprised – it sort of livened my face up a bit! That dark spot isn’t gone yet, but it’s just a little bit lighter which made me really happy.
I’ve had no breakouts since using the product, and I’ve been really happy with the results. The tone of my skin seems just a little bit brighter. It’s officially been added to my beauty arsenal!
The cream is also Hydroquinone free, Paraben-free and hypoallergenic.
The average price of this product is $48.50, but it’s a rather large tube and would last a long time because little is needed. It’s worth the price to me. To see more Chick Advisor reviews on the product, click here! To learn more about Vichy and the ProEven line, click here.
