Does Vichy Dermablend cover all flaws?

Does Vichy Dermablend cover all flaws?

As a beauty blogger one of the things that I get asked most is ‘can you recommend a good foundation?’. Women want lots of benefits from a foundation, but the main requirement is that it evens out the skin tone and covers any marks or blemishes. Some people are lucky enough to have fairly clear skin, and can make do with a tinted moisturiser or light foundation, whereas others have blemishes, acne, birthmarks, scars and other marks that need more coverage. Vichy Dermablend is a range of base make-up developed to cover all complexion flaws. I have been testing out the Fluid Corrective Foundation 16hr* and the Corrective Stick 14hr*, both in the palest Opal shade to see if they live up to Vichy’s claims. I have combination skin that is prone to a lot of blemishes, plus I have a few pale acne scars and uneven skintone on my cheeks from when I was a teenager, and some darker pigmentation marks around my eyes. None of these issues...

Vichy – Aqualia Thermal Power Serum

Vichy – Aqualia Thermal Power Serum

I’m quite partial to a serum, especially when it promises super hydration. I have combination skin, and my forehead and cheeks can get very dry particularly in cold weather, so I’m always on the lookout for something that will rehydrate my skin. This Aqualia Thermal Power Serum from Vichy contains three hydrating sugars which helps to hold water inside the skin for up to 48 hours, thus helping prevent dehydration.

Over the course of the day your skin can lose water, and dehydration can cause small wrinkles to appear and make skin start to look dull. I’ve been using Vichy Aqualia Thermal Power Serum for around 2 weeks now, applying it at night before I go to bed. It’s a white milky serum with a gentle floral scent and you only need one squirt to cover the whole face. You apply it before your regular moisturiser and it feels silky on your skin, it’s...

Glossybox – November 2013

Glossybox – November 2013

The theme of this month’s Glossybox is ‘The Glossy Wishlist’, I think the idea is that these are products you might want to add to your Christmas list (although if you’ve just received them in your Glossybox then there’s no need!). There are four full-sized products this month which is great, although in my opinion the choices aren’t particularly luxurious, and another Glossybox magazine too… So, now onto the products…. The first product is a full-sized Cocoa & Pistachio Nut Hand Cream from Yves Rocher. I tried this out as soon as I opened my Glossybox and it has a lovely rich, creamy scent perfect for Winter. It’s pretty much a budget product though and is priced at £1.95 for a 75ml tube. The next product is a full-sized tube of Dry Skin Exfoliator from footcare specialists Scholl. I’m not generally into footcare products and this certainly isn’t the luxurious sort of beauty product I would be adding to my Christmas list! I would have perhaps expected to see...
