Regular BBB readers will know that I find it hard to muster excitement over skin care sometimes, but I have to say that Vichy Normaderm Night Detox is the most interesting launch of the year in terms of skin care. Aimed at adult spots and oily skin issues, Vichy Normaderm Night Detox is a night treatment to reduce both problems.
One of the stats that I’ve been given is pretty amazing (tested on 56 subjects aged 18 to 38), claiming that 99% found their skin was less oily during the next day. I always think the proof of a product is in the testing so I won’t go into the other stats, but that particular one stood out as very impressive. You won’t see results on actual blemishes for 4 weeks XXX
The Vichy theory is that sebum production is at its most intense at night (a handy finding, given the product, *cough*) but interestingly, it takes about 12 hours for the sebum that has been produced at night to find its way onto your skin during the day. Therefore, targeting overnight production to give a result the following day makes perfect sense. Key players, ingredient wise, are Salicylic Acid, LHA (anti-bacterial), Eperuline (Amazonian tree branch extract that’s both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant), a from of Urea (exfoliating) and Perlite (oil absorption).
I am so looking forward to reviews of this product – I don’t have oily skin or adult blemishes (thankfully) so I can’t put it to the test myself, but if the claims really do live up to their promises, I think Vichy has made an exceptional breakthrough. Exciting times for adults who thought they’d left their teen skin problems behind. It’s £15.50 (on a 3-for-2 currently) HERE.
