Hello everyone, sorry for falling off the face of the earth again. Just popping in with a little cheap yet very effective skin-saver I've been wanting to share for a while. This has helped my congested stressed out skin immensely, and I reccomend it for oily to normal/congested skin. It contains a mixture of chemical skin exfoliating ingredients: Salicylic acid, and Glycolic acid, as well as microbeads that help scrub and buff the skin physically, which is great for preventing clogged pores and acne. I'm a sucker for multipurpose products, and so this is right up my ally. You can cleanse with it daily, use it more profusely as a scrub, and leave it on dry skin for 10-15 min as a clearing skin mask. I've mainly kept to cleansing and scrubbing.
Full ingredient list:AQUA/WATER • SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE • GLYCERIN • DECYL GLUCOSIDE • POLYETHYLENE ACRYLATES/C10-30 ALKYL ACRYLATE • CROSSPOLYMER • CI 19140 • CI 42053 • CI 77289 • SODIUM HYDROXIDE • SALICYLIC ACID • CHONDRUS CRISPUS (CARRAGEENAN) • JOJOBA ESTERS • DIPOTASSIUM GLYCYRRHIZATE • TETRASODIUM EDTA • CAPRYLYL GLYCOL • CAPRYLOYL SALICYLIC ACID • FRAGRANCE
I also highly recommend the toner in the same range which I use mornings only, unless I'm using my glycolic acid nighttime treatment. Remember Salicylic and Glycolic acids mix poorly with retinol containing products!
Vichy Normaderm is available in most pharmacies world wide.
Have a blessed Sunday!
