Review | Vichy Ideal Body Line
For the longest time, I never used any specific soap/shower gel. I would always just use whatever was in the shower (soap bar, mostly). After using this for a while, I literally had a revelation. This stuff feels super luxurious and creamy on the skin. It smells really good but not too overpowering. I think it really helped to hydrate and keep my skin smooth (especially when paired with the Body Milk). I realized that using a soap bar would dry out my skin extremely, but with this product my skin looks and feels hydrated and soft. Also, something worthy to mention is that a little goes a long way. It lathers really easily so you won't need to use a lot to get yourself clean. I would definitely recommend this if you're willing to spend a little extra on shower gel ($17CAD).
Like I mention, my skin was extremely dry from using bar soap BUT what I also failed to do for the longest time was moisturize my skin after taking a shower. I would always be too lazy to put on lotion and as a result, my skin was always "ashy". I only started to religiously apply lotion at the start of this year. It helped a lot, but when I started using this...WOW. I don't know why I didn't try or hear about this sooner. The Body Milk keeps my skin super hydrated throughout the day. I would even go further to say that it gives my skin a glowy look. That's because the product has little flecks that just makes my skin look radiant in the sunlight. This is definitely something I will be repurchasing. It retails for $30CAD, by the way.
Replumping Lip Balm*
The lip balm was an "eh" for me. I love the smell, texture, initial result, and packaging of it. Again, this Vichy product smells good but isn't too overpowering. The texture is really soft and buttery on the lips, it applies really smoothly. The packaging is really sleek and sanitary to me. I love the initial result of it as it hydrates my lips and makes them look a lot more supple. But unfortunately, that feeling doesn't last. I find that I have to be constantly reapplying throughout the day to keep my lips moisturized. I'm really sad this didn't work for me, but I do hope it works for others because it costs a bit much for a lip balm ($15CAD).
