Review: Vichy LiftActiv Serum

Since I turned the ripe old age of 25 I'm like 'hey I hear cat pee stops wrinkles, got to get on that trend' and before you know it I'm spending the equivalent of a mortgage on my skincare regime.

Recently I've been all about the serums which are supposed to be full of antioxidants and vitamins to leave my skin looking like I'm basically age 12. The one I recently just finished up was the Vichy Liftactiv Serum (£30) and since it's a little bit more of an investment I thought I'd share my thoughts.

The Vichy Liftactiv Serum comes in some pretty badass packaging, and I really like the dropper mechanism as it deposited the exact amount of product for the face every time.

The serum itself was quite watery in consistency and settled straight into the skin without even the slightest residue. After the first few uses I noticed it left my skin feeling silky which made makeup application a lot better and the rose scent is really lovely without being overpowering.

With long term use it left my skin feeling tighter and it definitely improved the skin texture and tone. Areas which were generally discoloured reduced and I noticed my blemishes healed which was a nice surprise.

The downside was that whilst it improved the more problematic areas of my skin it also dried it out. This was easily fixed with a more intensive moisturiser though (this one here is excellent) and didn't prevent the serum from doing it's thing.

Also it's marketed as 'anti-wrinkle' but I honestly noticed no difference in this area, although it made my skin's tone improve quite a lot.

Honestly if you have the budget for this product I would definitely recommend this serum. It really improved discolouration and the more problematic areas such as blemishes like nothing I've ever used before.

For me personally though it wasn't a significant enough difference to keep repurchasing this every month at £30 a pop.

Overall: 8.5/10
