Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa

Today is the launch of a very exciting product that I am over the moon to tell you about – Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa. It is the first sleeping mask in Canada and is suitable for sensitive skin!

Vichy Thermal spa water (the Auvergne water travels through volcanic rocks and is enriched with 15 beneficial minerals) is known for its soothing and skin regenerating properties.

– reinforces the skin’s natural defense system
– ensures a balanced pH
– reduces signs and sensations of discomfort experienced by sensitive skin (redness, rashes, tightness, etc.)
– improves skin quality
– helps skin regenerate faster.

Now Vichy launches a brand new product with its Thermal spa water, supported with 2 times more hyaluronic acid, and Aquabioryl (a hydration booster). And we have the Night Spa, like bringing the treatment from an actual Vichy Thermal spa home 🙂

Just look at that gel cream aqua goodness. I could eat it with a spoon if that is possible lol.

So what is a sleeping mask? It is a mask that you leave on overnight, once or twice a week.

Instruction says to apply a thick layer of the Night Spa to face and neck, leave on 10 – 15 minutes while you relax. Then gently massage any excess onto the skin and go to sleep. Simple?

The product can also be used as a moisturizer with less amount required (a thin layer) every night.

The scent is like heaven in a jar, fresh, light and relaxing, exactly like one from a luxurious spa. I can’t pinpoint what exactly the scent is, I just know that it smells good enough that I want it on my face every night.

The texture is creamy and light. When applied as a moisturizer, especially after a good serum (like Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10), it takes no time at all to absorb. The skin feels soft almost instantly.

When applied as a mask, it does take a bit of time before you can go to bed without the product sticking to your pillow –  20 to 40 minutes depending on the amount you use. And the soft and refreshed feeling continues into the morning when you wake up. My morning moisturizer goes on a lot easier, and so does my makeup. Skin feels less stressed, refreshed, I’m ready to face the day!

I fully intended to test this product as a sleeping mask but after the first night, I couldn’t stop using it, so it has been my night moisturizer of choice (since the day I received it) and sleeping mask on nights I wanted a bit of spa treatment luxury.

Do I like it and recommend it? At this point, you tell me 🙂

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Dimethicone, CaprylicTriglyceride, Squalane, Ammonium Polyacryldimethyltauramide, CI 42090, CI 42053, Dimethiconol, Parfum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol, Poloxamer 338, Disodium EDTA, Caprylyl Glycol, Citric Acid, Biosaccharide Gum 1, Xanthan Gum.

The product is paraben free, and like I said, suitable for sensitive skin. The jar is 75ml (larger size than most skin care products), retails for $44. This price tag is not bad at all, I did the math – Night Spa would cost you $30 if it comes in 50ml size.

Night Spa is available in drugstores today, May 15. Go check it out, or at least smell it and spread a small amount on your hand (if they have tester), and relax 🙂
