I picked some Vichy products in March.My first vichy product was Vichy Total Mat Hydrating, which you can check out here.I bought this product also since I heard so much about it.I was not sure if it would live up to its claims but I was surprised when I started using it.
- As a Cleanser:I really doubted it since it has Kaolin which sets pretty quickly but it lathered and cleansed properly.It is helpful for acne prone skin.
- As a Scrub:It contains tiny scrub particles which is gentle and more than enough for daily use.
- As a Face pack:It is easy to apply.It sets in about 5 minutes.
Skin feels soft and smooth.Salicylic acid,Glycolic acid are added bonus which favour oily-acne prone skin.Except for the cost,I have no other issues with it.It especially comes in handy when you are travelling,3 products in one.Overall a excellent product from Vichy,definitely worth the money!
