I always get excited for Vichy products, as they are a brand that just understands the different concerns with different skin types. On May 4th, Vichy launched 2 new products to their Ideal Collection. A collection containing my all time favourite, Ideal Skin Sleep Cream. The 2 new additions are Vichy Ideal Body Spa Shower Gel Cream & Oil.
Vichy created this product to turn your daily shower into a spa experience in just 20 seconds. I depend heavily on my morning shower to wake me up and provide freshness that lasts all day. Vichy Ideal Body Spa Shower Gel Cream was created for hydration and lasting comfort. It is enriched with shea butter, white clay, Vichy mineralizing water and Ideal Body fundamental oils. It is a runny cream with a subtle fragrance. When I first saw that it contained white clay, I was unsure if I’d like it because I find that products containing clay leave behind a residue on the skin. This however didn’t. The Gel Cream lathers into a nice foam and provides long hours of hydration and soft skin. Be content if you’re like me and forget to apply body lotion after the shower because the Gel Cream has you covered. I really do wish the fragrance was stronger but I totally get that Vichy makes products for those with sensitive skin and milder fragrances are best.
Vichy Ideal Body Spa Shower Gel Cream was definitely my favourite out of the two. Vichy’s Gel Cream retails for $16.95 (200 ML).
Vichy Ideal Body Spa Shower Gel Oil was created for hydration and illuminated skin. It is enriched with magnesium, zinc and copper, as well as Vichy mineralizing water and Ideal Body fundamental oils. It provides the freshness and cooling feeling of a hydrating gel with a slight oil finish. Unlike the Gel Cream which is a creamy white consistency. The Gel Oil is transparent and creates a richer foam than the cream. The Ideal Body Spa Shower Gel Oil retails for $16.95 (200 ML).
Although the two have different finishes, they some how both provide the same clean, fresh feeling. It just depends on your preference of formula. So if you’re on the hunt for a gentle body wash, then do check out Vichy Ideal Body Spa Shower Gel Oil or Cream. They aren’t overpowering and perfect for all skin types, even sensitive skin like my own.Vichy Ideal Body Spa Shower Gels can be purchased on www.vichy.ca, Shoppers Drug Mart and other drugstores.
