Trying out a foundation from Vichy and their most popular one for acne prone skin Do I like it? This is my first ever product purchased from Vichy and one that I was quite eager to try as I have heard quite a lot about this foundation from those who suffer from acne like me. So I purchased it and thought I would give it a try to see if I would like it. Here is what I thought of it…
Vichy is very popular in the skincare world amongst the likes of Clinique and Nivea. I have heard so many people rave about this foundation and especially those with acne prone skin. I picked up the Vichy DermaBlend Fluid Corrective Foundation with 16 Hour Protection in the hope that it can fix my acne prone skin. At first I thought Vichy were cruelty free and thought this foundation could replace my Clinique Anti Blemish Solution Foundation but later I discovered that Vichy aren’t actually cruelty free but I’m still going to type and post this review anyway. I picked this foundation up in the shade Opal 15, after I did a Foundation Matrix and swatch test I thought this shade would suit me better. This foundation claims to give you high coverage but with a natural looking and lightweight finish. Suitable for all ages and skin types including sensitive skin. It provided to give up to 16 hours of flawless and even coverage and becomes water and perspiration resistant when used in conjunction with the Dermablend Setting Powder, which I didn’t use. It also provides up to 24 hour hydration and helps protect your skin against UV rays with SPF 35.
HOW IT WEARS
When I first applied it I thought I was going to be really impressed with it, it had amazing coverage and the shade I picked up really matched my skin tone. But the more I wore it and after I set it with my pressed powder I always use I noticed that it wasn’t going to suit my skin and it was really showing up my oily patches. I think this is due to the ‘hydrating’ factor of this foundation which is really annoying as I really wanted to like this foundation, It had a similar feeling to the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation when it felt like it was melting off my face and I had only just applied it and my oily patches on my face felt really wet. (Sounds gross I know.)
I didn’t wear this foundation long enough to try the lasting power, as soon as I saw that this wasn’t going to work for me I removed it straight away. I have a feeling though that this will work better for those with acne and dry skin more so than those with oily and acne prone skin.
So I’m afraid I am going to have to get rid of this foundation somehow. I’ll probably sell it on my DEPOP which if you are interested in buying it you will find the link in my CONTACT page. If you know of any good cruelty free foundations suitable for those with oily and acne prone skin, please let me know and I’ll check them out.
*Update: Vichy aren’t cruelty free*
