For a long time I tried posting reviews for products that I absolutely adored. Or hated. It was always one of the two and somehow I skipped that ‘something in between’ part. And then I realized it was wrong! Because so many times I found myself in a shop holding some product in one hand and my phone in another, trying to find some reviews for this product. And so many times these reviews prevented me from buying stuff that wasn’t that great or not worth even looking at so now I decided to write the reviews for everything that I’ve tried out. No matter if I liked it a lot or it was just ok. Maybe it will help you when you have to make a tough choice! So, today’s time for a review for a product from the ‘in between’ category: Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel.

My opinion:

Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel is a cleansing gel from Vichy’s line for problem, young, oily skin. So I don’t know what business did I have buying it in the first place as my skin is not (so) young anymore, not oily and well yeah it does still fall under definition of problem skin. So that’s 1 out of 3. Anyways, the gel has a very nice texture, it smells fresh (the fragrance is very light though). It’s a good product to be used in combination with my clarisonic, that for sure. I can’t say that it dried my skin out a lot, no, nothing like that as I still used it twice a day and I’m not crazy to use something that dries my skin out a lot that often. It did dry my skin out a bit though. So in the end, if you have young, problem skin and you want to calm it down and cleanse it properly, I think you might like this product. Me, I prefer something that cleanses just as good but is more gentle to my skin, something like my all time favorite bioderma.

Overall note: B.
