Something new from Vichy Laboratoires this way cometh. Well new for us here in Malaysia anyway 🙂
Vichy is introducing a new line of anti-aging skincare called LiftActiv CxP starting January 2010. The target audience is women of 40 years and up and this line of products is meant to firm up skin and reduce wrinkles while hydrating the skin with Vichy’s signature thermal spring water.
One of the key ingredients is Vitamin C which is slow released over a 24 hour period to stimulate collagen production. However, because vitamin C is rather unstable and oxidises easily, I’m not quite sure how effective it is as an ingredient. However, combined with the other ingredients, it does make the skin feel quite nice and smooth.
There are 3 products in the line – LiftActiv CxP day cream, night cream and eye cream. From a preliminary feel, the LiftActiv CxP creams feel good on the skin.
Both the day cream and night cream feel light. The texture is quite similar to the Bi-White Reveal cream if you have tried that one – soft and velvety smooth. The night cream is a little thicker but still feels nice. I have only just started using this one so we’ll see how it goes – I’m not yet 40 but I do have some lines and we will soon see if they get smoothened out 🙂 I’m also using my mum as a guinea pig so I’ll report on how it works on older skin 😀
What I’m really more interested in is the eye cream. Late nights, bad nights and just general malaise has given me tired looking eyes so I’m wondering if the LiftActiv CxP Anti Wrinkle Eye lifting cream will help me. I’ll let you know how it goes 🙂
The Vichy LiftActiv CxP Day and Night Creams retail at RM149 for 50ml tubs and the LiftActiv CxP Eye Care is RM130 for 15ml. Look out for this line at major pharmacies 🙂
Whilst new to Malaysia, the Vichy LiftActiv CxP line is not new internationally. If you have already tried products from this line which have been available in Europe and the USA since last year, do feel free to let us know what you think of it.
