New in! Vichy’s Purete Thermale Skincare Range* | available from Boots
Cleansing has become quite the ‘it‘ word in the world of beauty over the last few years and skincare fanatics are all too aware that a thorough cleanse-tone-moisturise system is a surefire step towards healthy, happy, glowing skin.
Vichy is one of those brands that I trust when it comes to skincare and rightly so considering they boast over 80 years experience and expertise in caring for women’s skin. With so many skincare brands and bold claims on the market at one time it can be a bit overwhelming to choose the right products that will benefit your skin and fit in with your lifestyle which is why Vichy has released some new additions and some re-branded favourites from their popular Purete Thermale range. This collection of cleansers, toners, scrubs and micellar water prove to be quick yet effective for us busy women who are after a fast fix in the morning yet maybe a more leisurely cleansing ritual in the evening.
The three products I have recently added to my skincare routine are the Cleansing Micellar Solution (£12), the 3 in 1 Cleanser (12) and finally a new Cleansing Gel (£12). All are suitable for all skin types, but specifically gentle on sensitive skin, and help to protect your complexion from hard water that can deposit limescale on to the skin – causing drying and irritation.
The Cleansing Micellar Solution is a great non-aggressive step to effectively remove all stubborn makeup and impurities without irritating the skin. Simply douse the light liquid onto a cotton wool pad and sweep over your skin to leave it feeling supple and smooth. I do like to always have a micellar water on the go and I particularly like this one as it leaves you skin feeling refreshed without any greasy residue. The New Cleansing Gel is an innovative anti-pollution expert cleanser which frees the skin of impurities and pollutants. It is enriched with Glycerin and Mooring to deeply cleanse and protects cells from pollution nasties and the gel formula gently foams up when rinsed with water leaving the skin fresh, clear and soft. I have never been much a fan of gel-based cleansers but this one has won me over – it is quick and efficient and perfect for a morning cleanse to awaken the skin. Finally we have the 3 in 1 Cleanser which is the ultimate quick yet effective step in a busy women’s regime. This creamy solution is a multi-purpose cream and contains everything you need to cleanse, tone and remove a full face of makeup. The fresh, no-rinse texture (just massage on and wipe off with cotton pad/cloth) doesn’t leave the skin feeling oily or sticky in any way and does get rid of pretty much every scrap of makeup without drying my skin out. With one sold every 20 seconds across the world I can definitely see why this is a firm favourite for many!
