Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 - 30ml - $55 - contains 10% Rhamnose - a natural sugar that stimulates the papillary dermis (the layer of dermis containing unique and fragile cells which are capable of commanding the regeneration of the entire skin) sending out cells to regenerate the skin in its entirety. In combination with hyaluronic acid, ceramides and mineral-rich Vichy Thermal Spa Water - to soothe, strengthen and regenerate - they result in skin that’s immediately lifted, plumped with elasticity improved.
So I know you're all sighing right now and thinking "for dog's sake Lisamarie, another serum?!" Ok fine, I admit it, I like serums - but I'm telling you people, you need to feel this stuff on your skin, it's freaking amazing! It makes my skin feel so smooth and velvety without being the least bit greasy, it just soaks right in! It can be worn day and/or night and is meant to be layered under your usual moisturizer, so don't worry about having to give it up.
I've been using it under my day cream and I swear, within a week, my skin looked smoother, brighter and felt much softer. I don't have a lot of wrinkles to test it on but the ones I do have seem less obvious. I guess the best way I can describe it is it has given me an all-around youthful glow!
The other thing that makes it exciting is the cost. - I can appreciate that most of the serums I have raved about in the past are a bit pricey, but at $55 this one isn't bad at all - especially when you take into account how little of it I use each time. This bottle is going to last me ages!
Think you can't try it because you have sensitive skin? Think again - Rhamnose is recognized for it's soothing properties and is perfectly tolerated by sensitive skin.
When I was at Shoppers the other day they had product booklets that contained a sample, so go score yourself one, I think once you use it a couple of times you will understand what I am talking about here and will be running back for your own bottle!
