Vichy’s 80th Anniversary & Spa Water Workshop


Last week I was glad to attend the Vichy Spa Water Workshop to be re-introduced the goodness of Vichy Thermal Spa Water and to preview the latest Vichy products – Aqualia Thermal Aqua-Gel Moisturizer and Aqualia Thermal Mask.

Do you know that stress, pollution, climate variations and sun exposure can accelerate water evaporation on the skin’s surface? When it lacks water and minerals, skin renews itself less quickly, its structure becomes disorganized and allows more water to escape. At the surface, dehydration marks appear, skin becomes weakened, rough and sensitive too.

Inflammation such as stinging, itching and burning sensation will occur when skin becomes sensitive. So what can Vichy Thermal Spa Water do to help on these problems?


Vichy Thermal Spa Water

Vichy, the leading skincare brand in Europearn pharmacies, is known for its thermal spa water which is claimed to be more than just water. Originated from a spring in the town of Vichy in France, Vichy Thermal Spa Water is 100% natural and is rich in 15 rare minerals from an incredible journey in the heart of magmatic rocks. It is considered “living” water as it cannot be reproduced industrially and is therefore, an active ingredient that is genuinely pure and natural. Its exceptional richness allows soothing, fortifying and regenerating for a healthy-looking skin.

Soothing : Anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant

Fortifying : Strengthens and protects tissue against aging

Regenerating : Stimulates cell renewal

Its 100% natural properties is claimed to effectively soothe sensitive skin and reinforce skin’s natural defense systems. Researches have also shown that Vichy Thermal Spa Water has the highest ability to protect skin against external aggressors.

Do you know?

All Vichy products are formulated with Vichy Thermal Spa Water (water from Lucas Spring), which is particularly tailored to the needs of sensitive skin.


Thermal Spa Water Spray – 100% PURE Vichy Thermal Spa Water

Vichy Thermal Spa Water in a spray format offers all the therapeutic properties of thermal water with increased effectiveness thanks to its spraying of micro-droplets. The energizing mechanical action of the spray gives the skin a micro massage and thus optimizes the very benefits of Vichy Thermal Spa Water.

It is claimed that daily usage of Vichy Thermal Spa Water helps to soothe the skin and reinforces its natural defense systems. Skin is therefore more supple and resistant, all congestion is relieved.

Usage Benefits :

  • Soothes and strengthens the skin
  • Improves skin’s natural defence
  • Removes cleanser or soap residue
  • Tones, softens and smoothes the skin
  • Sets makeup, removes excess oil during day
  • Improves skincare efficacy

You can use Vichy Thermal Spa Water Spray day and evening or for various reasons as above image. Such as to soothe skin in harsh cold weather, sunburns, dehydrated skin, tight skin during traveling or after laser/chemical peel/microdermabrasion.

You can actually spray the Thermal Spa Water on a paper mask to soothe your skin too.

Due to my sensitive skin and stress, I actually encountered minor irritation on my cheek area during the event. I therefore did a live demo by spraying my face with Vichy Thermal Spa Water Spray. The irritation actually subsided an hour later. ;-)
