Vichy Normaderm - Micellar Water.

3 July 2013
Here we are again with the French skincare brand Vichy, today we'll be taking a look at their Normaderm 3-in-1 Solution For Imperfection Prone Skin Micellar Lotion.


For starters (and those who want a quick idea of what this is like) this micellar water is comparable to Bioderma Crealine H2O. It does the same job when it comes to removing makeup, it doesn't leave a residue and if you're comfortable not washing your face after using a makeup removal product then you certainly don't have to with this.

This product claims to cleanse, remove makeup and sooth skin and is recommended for imperfection prone skin consisting of blocked pores, uneven texture, excess oil, redness and/or large pores.

It smells simillar to other micellar waters and is a clear solution. It contains no alcohol, parabens, colours or soap, is hypoallergenic and has been tested on sensitive skin.

My personal experience has been very pleasant. When used with a cotton pad it easily removes all traces of makeup and I've never had an issue with skin or eye irritation. On occasion (usually wee hours of the morning after being out all night) I used this product without washing my face afterwards and didn't experience a single issue with dryness/excess oil, irritation or breakouts the following day.

Pros:
  • Removes all makeup easily.
  • No residue of any kind left on skin.
  • No issues with drying out skin or exacerbating my oil problems.
  • Cheaper than Bioderma Crealine H2O.
  • Gentle on skin.
  • Suitable for sensitive skin types.

Cons:
  • Hard to find in Australia :/
  • Didn't personally see results with blocked pores, uneven texture or reducing the size of my pores.

Conclusion:
Love it, would buy again. If I saw this in a shop and I could choose between Bioderma and Vichy I would just go for the less expensive one on the shelf because they both do the same thing. Vichy really needs to bring their whole range to Australia so people can sample these in store without having to rely on online reviews.

Have you tried micellar solutions? What are your thoughts?

    1. Really loved this stuff, I've not found it in stores anywhere in Australia yet and as far as I know they haven't planned to bring Vichy here but it can be found online. Amazon is my first port of call when I'm keen to shop for french products, there are quite a few sellers that ship direct from French pharmacies so their prices are reasonable.

      I have a few more French brands and products lined up to review, I'll have all my readers obsessed soon enough haha!
