vichy ideal body aqua sorbet

vichy ideal body aqua sorbetThe first body treatment with an ultra-refreshing texture to keep skin feeling fresh and energetic from morning until evening.

Vichy’s new Ideal Body Aqua Sorbet is as amazing as it sounds. The instructions are to apply to damp skin, so I have been using it after every shower for a couple of weeks and while I haven’t noticed any ‘firming’ (which I’ve never expected in my current shape, maybe in a few dozen pounds!), it smells heavenly (just like sorbet!), absorbs quickly, and leaves my skin feeling amazing.

So much more than hydration for radiant, well-toned skin all day long.
Freshness and Energy: [Gingko Biloba]
Continuous Hydration: [Aquabioryl + Hyaluronic acid + Carrageenan sugars + Fundamental oils]
Smooth Skin Tone : [LHA + Fundamental oils]
Firmness & Softness: [Hyaluronic acid + LHA + Fundamental oils]

The lotion itself is a light orange colour, and feels cool and refreshing when I apply it. Part of that is probably because I just stepped out of a super hot shower… hah. I love that it’s dispensed by pump to keep potential contaminants out, and it makes it easy for my kids to use after a bath which is a huge bonus. It’s a thin lotion so a little goes a long way, and it absorbs very quickly. With spring nowhere in sight, it’s wonderful to have a product like this that lifts my spirit and reminds me that summer will be here eventually!

It is dermatologically tested, hypoallergenic, contains no parabens, and is made with soothing and fortifying Vichy thermal spa water.

bioderma atoderm

biodermaatoderm1Even though I’ve experienced cold, dry, Canadian winters my entire life, I still struggle with the skin problems it creates. My legs especially get extremely dry and itchy and I am always excited to try out products that will help combat that. For the past few weeks the whole family has been using these new Bioderma Atoderm products specifically created for dry (or very dry) sensitive skin and I’ve gotta say… they’re all amazing.

[BI652V1]

Allergen-free, Soap-free, Paraben-free scented formula with no artificial colouring, Naturally bluish colour, Hypoallergenic

Like I said above, the whole family has been using this and I have noticed that even if I forget to apply lotion right after a bath, everyone is less itchy and no one feels like sandpaper. It foams up nicely with a puff, and the scent is extremely delicate and clean. I love the pump top as we waste less product and the bottle is huge so it will last us quite a while.

Ultra-Nourishing Balm

Atoderm PP Baume prevents severe and recurring skin dryness. Its Écodéfensine® patented complex regulates the skin’s ecosystem and preserves its biological balance.

[BI 560]

Fragrance-free formula, Paraben-free, Hypoallergenic

My husband was extremely excited about this because he has some damage to the lipid layer on his face and this restores lipids… he’s been using it for a few weeks and has found that it has reduced the redness and his skin isn’t as dry. It absorbs very quick in to my skin and even 12 hours after applying I still feel moisturized. One of the product benefits they list is that it improves the patient’s quality of life due to scratching in your sleep and I can absolutely say that it has.

Moisturizing Stick

Scented formula: delicious raspberry fragrance, Allergen-free, Paraben-free, Hypoallergenic

I can never have enough lipbalms in my life – and this one is fantastic. I love that it’s clear and so I don’t have to worry when I’m applying it on the go, I feel comfortable using it on the kids, and the raspberry scent is amazing. It feels very light on my lips and they feel hydrated for a couple hours after applying.

Overall I am extremely happy with these products, and if you are trying to combat dry skin I highly suggest checking them out!
