Overall Opinion:

Overall I really like VICHY Liftactiv Retinol HA Night!

I noticed results for sure.  My skin appeared toned and tighter and my lines softer.

Even though a 4/5 is a great rating, I didn’t place it slightly higher for two main reasons…

First, I hated the application process.  The bottle is so cheaply made and pumping it out was awkward and frustrating.

Second, I don’t like when a product give you too much of an over the top guarantee. It seems very gimmicky to me.

The box reads that you will see a plumping effect visible after one use. Although, I loved my skin in the morning, the claim was not the case which just makes me wonder.

I really have nothing bad to say about my results. Overtime, I really noticed great changes that aren’t all that typical with over the counter products.

I have normal to dry skin and I never experienced any drying side effects, which is great!

Personally I enjoyed the green tea aroma of this product, however I would caution if you are sensitive to smells, that it may bother you because it ‘s fairly strong.

I am really happy with what VICHY did for my skin; I just wish they would fix the bottle :)

Detailed Opinion:

Texture/Feel

VICHY Liftactiv Retinol HA is a white, lightweight cream.

It has the texture more of a lotion than a cream.

When it first hits your skin, it has a silky smooth feel to it, which I liked.

Application

Applying this retinol cream was probably my least favorite thing about it.

I hate the container and it’s super hard to pump out.  In fact, you end up wasting a lot of the product by the time you get it out!

Once you manage to get the cream out of the container, the rest is simple.

After you cleanse your skin at night, you apply a thin layer all over your face, avoiding your eye area.

I used this product every night before bed.

Drying Time

VICHY dries semi-quickly.

Although it absorbs fast and never feels gooey on your face, you can feel it on your skin for about a minute.

It has the effect of any typical lotion or moisturizer that you may apply.

Smell

This product smells great!

I would describe it as a refreshing green tea; it felt very “spa like”.

The fragrance dissipates after about 5 minutes.

Short Term Results

Immediately after using VICHY my skin felt tight and tingling.

It’s hard to explain exactly, but it felt sort of how your skin feels when you have a face mask on.

Now, waking up the next morning after using VICHY, I noticed a few things.

The box claims that you see a plumping effect the very next day.  I wouldn’t go THAT far, but I did like what I saw.

My skin seemed a lot smoother and my makeup went on great.

My face had such a glow about it; in fact, someone asked me that day if I got my makeup airbrushed! AWESOME :)

I experienced no side effects either which was also great.

Longer Term Results

Longer term I did notice some positive changes in my skin…

It appeared more toned and my wrinkles faded.  I noticed it the most on my cheeks, it helped improve my nasolabial folds (those smile lines that form on either side of your nose and mouth and the bottom of your cheeks).

My skin continued to get smoother and stayed hydrated!

Ingredients Analysis

This cream contains retinol; however the actual amount is not stated.

The retinol in this product is used to help with lines which I did notice!

Hyaluronic Acid is used in many lip fillers when you have plastic surgery. Its purpose is to plump your skin.

I feel as if this ingredient played a huge role into why my skin appeared to be firmer over time.

Finally I like that this product had Shea Butter in it.  Shea butter is super hydrating, which is most likely why no redness or irritation occurred :)

Price

This product is very reasonably priced at $47.50 per ounce.  Although it’s slightly above average for an over the counter “drugstore” style product, this product was much more potent and can still be purchased without a prescription!

It was well worth the money.

Guarantee

VICHY offers a satisfaction guarantee.

A full refund is given if the product is returned 30 days from the purchase date.

Keep in mind that completely empty bottles can NOT be returned (so the guarantee is a little ambiguous).
