Beauty Talk: Vichy Cleanser

January 15, 2014

I’m a product junkie- tried and true; confessed and accepted! I love beauty products and am always seeking the best. I’ve come across an amazing cleanser at Ulta that I have completely fallen in love with- Purete Thermale 3-in-1 Cleanser by Vichy.

Vichy is a region in France known for its healing thermal waters dating back to the 1600s. Royalty would often visit for dermatological treatments becoming a destination for the elite. In 1903, Coco Chanel was a “water girl” for Vichy before she ventured into the fashion world. The Vichy Brand of 80 years have encompassed the essence of this region creating state-of-the-art skincare.

Purete Thermale 3-in-1 cleanser is a cleansing milk, toner and makeup remover all in one. Free of parabens, dyes and harsh sulfates, this cleanser is perfect for all skin types-even sensitive. Although the directions state you can just apply with a cotton ball and no rinsing is needed, I can’t stand the thought of leaving anything on my skin. Cleansing is the art of rinsing away impurities, right? So I apply, massage in and rinse.

This cleanser is amazing! It really does remove even the hardest waterproof mascara and lip-stains while leaving my skin soft, clean and supple (thanks to the generous amount of vitamins and thermal water).  I highly recommend this product.

If $19.50 sounds costly for a cleanser, just think about this: you don’t need to buy makeup remover or toner. So, in reality, this cleanser is a smart choice for everyone. You won’t be disappointed!
