There’s a new night cream on the block ladies… say hello to Vichy’s Idealia Skin Sleep recovery night gel-balm. The idea behind this one is that it aims to stimulate the skin’s own deep sleep mechanisms, so even if you don’t get much sleep, skins nightly functions will remain at their optimum, meaning you make the most of your beauty sleep.
In reality, this stuff is pretty unusual. The texture is a very cooling and soothing gel, as opposed to a traditional creamy formula and as such is something that’s probably going to appeal to those who might be considering their first night anti-aging cream.
Ingredients wise it’s got a dreamy green tea and jasmine fragrance that’s actually lovely for bed time. It’s also got skin loving Hyaluronic Acid to help stimulate cell regeneration, LHA to help smooth and even out the skin, as well as caffeine and Vitamin B.
Overall I quite liked this one and its unique light texture. At first it feel right for night time, it was so refreshing on the skin, and the subtle scent and softening feel really made it a hit. Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep is available in a 50ml jar.
