It has been a really rough winter (still is, it just snowed yesterday lol), I was lucky to receive Vichy LiftActiv Supreme right in the middle of it for review. Have been using it every morning since.
LiftActiv Supreme is a daily wrinkle corrector and firming skin care, with 5% Rhamnose + Adenosine + Caffeine + Neohesperidine.
Now if you remember Rhamnose, a natural sugar extracted from silver beech to rejuvenate the skin in LiftActiv Serum 10 and LiftActiv Serum 10 Eyes & Lashes, my skin took some liking to this ingredient and I saw good results of its effects.
On top of that, LiftActiv Supreme is supposed to have:
– Instant 3D Optical technology: Offers mattifying and blurring finish, with illuminating effect
– Over-day Aging prevention: Caffeine and Retinol-like Adenosine promote cellular energy and responsiveness, so skin remains smooth, firm and rested all day long
– Fight long-term Aging effects: Rhamnose 5% helps reduce the look of wrinkles and increase skin firmness; and Neohesperidine, a potent anti-oxidant, boosts the effects of rhamnose, for cellular renewal and global protection.
You could probably guess by the look of it in the jar (and the texture showed below, on the left), LiftActiv Supreme is a thicker cream, but Glycerin, Apricot nourishing kernel butter and shea butter in the ingredients help it melt into the skin quite fast and I could hardly feel it after that.
Suggestions: apply all over the face, decollete and neck, avoiding the eye area, spread with upward strokes, from inside to outside.
I am not very good at moisturizing my neck but try to remember the instruction to be better at it. With daily use, my skin has not felt tight nor dry with morning commute in the cold, snow, freezing rain and everything in between.
The mattifying and blurring effect show in some extent, with other makeup put on top of it for the day. But the skin does feel plumped and firm, signs of wrinkles reduce. I feel like the better version of me 🙂
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Rhamnose, Isohexadecane, Alcohol Denat, Propanediol, Isopropyl Isostearate, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Behenyl Alcohol, etc.
Like all Vichy skin care products, LiftActiv Supreme is enriched with Vichy Thermal Spa Water, paraben-free, suitable for all skin types. It does have a light scent which does not bother me. When spring (and then summer) comes, I might alternate it with Aqualia Thermal Dynamic hydration, shown above on the right for texture comparison.
Available now, the jar is 50ml, retails $49.50. Check out Vichy Works for Me website where you can receive a coupon up to $20 off a routine that works for you, and there is always sales at drugstoers for extra savings.
