 Vichy Purete Thermale Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover 150ml
Vichy Purete Thermale Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover 150ml
Remove every last trace of eye makeup with the Vichy Purete Thermale Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover, a gentle bi-phase cleanser. When makeup refuses to budge, this highly effective oil-based cleanser works deep down to clear the area. Even the most resistant mascara, eyeliner and eye shadow is gently removed, leaving the skin looking and feeling soft, clear and clean. The dual non-greasy oil and Vichy Thermal Spa Water formulation makes makeup removal easier than ever, and doesn't tug or pull at the skin. Ideal for sensitive eyes, it provides a satiny finish for the thin and delicate eye contour and limited the loss of lashes through tough mascara removal. Paraben-free, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, tested on sensitive eyes.

I've used a few of these bi-phase eye makeup removers, some more than double the price of this one, and for me personally there's little difference. This one is just as effective if not better than other brands and takes off all my eye makeup quickly and easily with no rubbing and it doesn't sting. It does leave a very slight oily residue, but I much prefer that than ones that leave the skin around my eyes dry and itchy. It's also a bigger bottle too, 150ml compared to a lot of others at only 125ml. I like this so much I bought another almost immediately.

I bought this to go with the Micellar Oil, and they really do compliment each other very well. It wipes away any residue after cleansing, and leaves my skin fresh and smooth, but more importantly it doesn't dry out my skin. It's also gentle enough to lightly sweep over my eyes without any irritation, so another bonus. It also has a light fresh fragrance too, so all in all it's another Vichy product I'll definitely be buying again.

Remove even the toughest make-up with the Vichy Purete Thermale Beautifying Cleansing Micellar Oil, suitable for all skin types. Lightweight, effective and non-greasy, this luxurious oil ensures pleasurable make-up removal. Both oily and dry skin types will benefit from its clarifying care as it won't overload the skin, instead transforming from an oil to a milk on contact with water.. At the heart of the formula are micelles, which gently remove waterproof make-up, impurities, sebum excess and dead cells with no need for rubbing. Added Camelia Oil moisturises and smoothes skin, while Vitamin E provides antioxidant protection. Massage onto skin to loosen makeup, and rinse away with water. Paraben-free, suitable for sensitive skin. Tested under dermatological and ophthalmological control.

My BFF recommended this to me, as quite frankly this is much better value for money compared to the more expensive brands which do exactly the same job. I don't wear a lot of makeup, so this is ideal for me and it cleans my face beautifully and doesn't leave any oily residue. The fragrance is lovely, but not overpowering like one I've used. I also use the Perfecting Toner to freshen my skin afterwards, which is also very good. I don't use this oil to remove eye makeup as my eyes are super sensitive, but other than that I will definitely buy this again.

Intensely freshen and hydrate your delicate eye area with the Vichy Aqualia Thermale Awakening Eye Balm. Created to help your eye area retain a fresh and vital look throughout the day, this comfortable and velvety balm creates balance, ensuring that swollen eyes are prevented in the morning and hollowness is boosted with moisture in the evening. The dynamic eye balm caresses skin with a big boost of hydration, working to fight dark circles, bags fatigues and fine lines. At the heart of the formula is a powerful hydration complex crafted from Hyaluronic Acid, Aquabioryl and ?-Carrageenans, renowned for their ability to improve water distribution between cells. An added infusion of 15% glycerine helps to retain that water, while caffeine drains and decongests to prevent the formation of bags. Apply using gentle massage motions both morning and evening. Suitable for sensitive eyes. Tested under dermatological and ophthalmological control. Paraben-free, perfume-free.

I tend to put eye creams/gels onto a very slightly damp skin, as I find it not only goes further but sinks in easier. This is a lovely gel like consistency, that is easy to apply, and its effectiveness seems to last all day. It doesn't appear to have the fragrance of the other Thermal Aqualia products which is fine, as some perfumed eye products have irritated my skin before. My only gripe is, that the pump dispenses more product than is needed (for me anyway) so I have to be careful not to push the pump too hard. Other than that I really like this eye balm.

Vichy has been around for so long, I can't remember not having used their products at some time. This moisturiser whilst being for normal to combination skin and quite lightweight in texture, keeps my skin very nicely hydrated. The fragrance is lovely and fresh and a little it seems goes a long way.

This little tube of eye cream is lovely. The lines around my eyes won't ever disappear completely, but certainly the little ones are less noticeable, and the skin around my eyes is softer. The cream/gel like consistency goes on easily, and a little goes a long way. I don't have sensitive skin, I just prefer to use La Roche-Posay treatment rather than any other brand.

Intensely soothe your extremely dry, itchy, atopy-prone skin with the La Roche-Posay Lipikar Balm AP+M, a lipid-replenishing balm that soothes and breaks the cycle of itching and irritation. The compensating texture of the balm prevents allergens from penetrating the cutaneous barrier of the skin, stopping the stinging, scratching, and pulling of tight skin. Lipikar Balm AP+ immediately soothes and breaks this vicious cycle to lastingly restore skin comfort. A high dose of Niacinamide fights against irritation messengers and restores the cutaneous barrier, while a significant 20% concentration of Shea Butter and Canola oil - which is rich in Omegas 3 and 6 - provide intense lipid replenishment, allowing skin to regain a supple, high-comfort feel. Apply the non-sticky, non-greasy formulation to the skin of babies, adults and children once a day.

I was recommended this by my BF who has eczema, and she rates it the best ever. Although it's very rich, it's not in the least bit sticky or tacky and sinks into my skin easily. It's very soothing on my dry, flaky, itchy elbows, knees and lower legs, and lasts all day without having to reapply like some I've used before. 10/10.

Lipikar Surgras - Ultra Rich Body Wash 200ml
Restore the softness of your skin every time you shower with the La Roche-Posay Lipikar Surgras ultra rich body wash, an intensively moisturising creamy cleanser. The compensating cream is made up of a 10% lipid replenishing concentrate that is soap-free and paraben-free, and is specifically designed for dried out and uncomfortable skin in both children and adults. Formulated with a very mild cleansing base containing a lipid-replenishing derivative of Shea Butter, it gently cleanses the skin without irritation and keeps the skin's hydrolipidic film intact and protects against the drying effects of water. Shower after shower, the skin is protected against any feelings of tightness and continues to retain its natural softness and comfort. Put a dab in the palm of the hand, apply to wet skin, massage lightly and then rinse away.

I have dry, flaky, itchy skin on my elbows, knees and lower legs, and this wonderful shower cream certainly helps to soothe and calm these areas. I now use a baby sponge rather than those horrible twisted plastic things, and this helps too. This shower cream doesn't irritate at all, and leaves my skin feeling really soft. A little goes a long way and it has a fair amount of lather even in the hard water area where I live. A great product.

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Lips intensely replenishes chapped and sore lips. The protective formula creates a layer on the lips, filling in cracks and preventing external aggressions from worsening the problem. A 5% concentration of panthenol provides instant, intense relief from discomfort and repairs the damaged skin, while 3% MP-lipids recreates the hydrolupidic film to prevent chapping. From the very first application, lips are soothed and comforted. After 4 weeks, irritation is reduced around the lip contour, and new cracks are reduced. Apply Cicaplast Lips as often as required. The compensating formula is suitable for all skin types including patients taking Roaccutane, and is allergy tested under dermatological control.

But it's not what I thought it was going to be. I want a light cream that I can put on my lips either under or over my moisturiser and under my foundation. This type of product appears to be in short supply on the market. Having said that, this Cicaplast lip balm is one of the best I've used. I put it on my lips just before going to bed, and they are definitely soft and not dry in the morning. So on the whole, although it's not what I wanted, it's a good product.

Although I haven't got dry skin on my hands, they do sometimes get itchy. Some hand creams I've used that are heavily fragranced can irritate them. This Lipikar hand cream is lovely. It's light but very moisturising and a little goes a long way. The fragrance is unobtrusive but is light and fresh and very pleasant. My only gripe is that I had a dickens of a job getting the plastic seal off from around the lid.
