I started using both of these when my rather dry skin went little crazy on my chin and jawline with some huge, hurting red bumps that where just not going anywhere probably because of stress/hormones but who knows. At first I tried Effaclar Duo but that didn’t do anything except for more drying (must admit though that I’m getting the hang of it).
Vichy Normaderm Night Detox
So on to what they do and how I use them: The night detox aka the sebum controller obviously in the evening after cleansing & toning, before face oil – sometimes in the morning when I feel like it (e.g. that time of the month or if I had lots of pizza that week). The first morning I noticed a really remarkable difference – my there-to-stay spots did hurt a lot less and where less red which continued to get better trough the course of one week until almost every blemish was gone. I also noticed less bumpy skin which I can get sometimes when my face is producing sebum-stuff like crazy. Most importantly there was no dryness to be seen so I could go and conceal without flaky skin – great!! I have been using this for over half a year and it is still working and I notice my skin getting blemish-y when I stop using it.
The Anti-Age cream is not by any means heavy, sinks in very well and leaves the skin hydrated but with no feel of greasiness – so this is now my go-to morning moisturizer for my dry but slightly spot prone skin and does the job fine but I didn’t see less fine lines or else for me it’s just a good all round moisturizer.
Both have a slight green color, no detectable scent (even though listed) and a gel/cream consistency. I would recommend the night detox to everyone who has breakouts or acne, if it’s hormonal or you just were partying to much and is not afraid/prone to breakout more when silicone is involved. You don’t have to use much product, my first tubes are nearly empty after plus 6 month of use.
sidenote: I emptied the night detox, cut the tube to get out the remaining product and went to buy a new one yesterday.
