NEW Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care


Last week, I’ve attended the Vichy workshop at House @ Dempsey Road to preview the new improved version of Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care.

What a relaxing greenery venue to introduce the new Vichy product.

Tasty canapes and interesting drink were served at the event.

The new packaging (on the right) has 3 circles that symbolize triple performance – anti-imperfection, mattifying and 24-hour hydration.

Do you know that 20 million units of Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care have been sold worldwide since 2003?

Vichy Normaderm range is specially designed for imperfection skin such as acne, skin oiliness and clogged pores. In fact, Vichy has done a research that 3 out of 5 Singaporean women actually suffer from oily skin imperfections. Due to the humid tropical climate in Singapore, many women find it really hard to control their skin oiliness. So how can we control the increased oil production without compromising skin hydration?

And can we achieve an anti-imperfection, mattifying skin with 24-hour hydration? Vichy believes it is possible with the new improved Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care.

The 4 Most Common Skin Imperfections are acne/pimples, clogged pores/blackheads, oily skin and enlarged pores.


Introducing the new Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care

This new improved Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care is created to provide stronger and faster anti-imperfection results for a healthier and clearer skin. It is paraben free and it is suitable for sensitive skin.

Triple Performance in one application

1. Anti-imperfection

2. Mattifying

3. 24-hour hydration


Hydra-Peeling Technology (2 Registered Patents Pending)

Inspired by dermatological peeling, Vichy creates a complete daily care for Asian skin with 3 dermatological peeling active ingredients – 0.14% lipo-hydroxy Acid (LHA), 0.5% salicylic acid (BHA) and 0.175% glycolic acid (AHA). This patented Hydra-Peeling technology targets and reduces acne, blackheads and redness.

In fact, this is the first product I’ve ever came across to contain all 3 exfoliating ingredients in a bottle. I believe there are other products that have this similar formulation too but I yet to find out what are they. As far as I know salicylic acid (also known as beta hydroxy acid, BHA in short) and glycolic acid (also known as alpha hydroxy acid, AHA in short) are proven as potent exfoliating ingredients for skin rejuvenation. But in order to see result, the percentage for BHA and AHA play an important role too. The ideal percentage for BHA is 1 – 2% and as for AHA is 8%.

But since the 3 powerful active peeling ingredients are contained in one bottle, I reckon the low percentage of each ingredient - 0.14% lipo-hydroxy Acid (LHA), 0.5% salicylic acid (BHA) and 0.175% glycolic acid (AHA) – are acceptable as that will make the product gentle enough for all skin types including sensitive skin too.

The 3 peeling active ingredients were integrated in a daily hydrating care to target all the different layers of the epidermis. The unique association has a synergistic and stronger action on cellular renewal.


Anti-Shine Active Ingredient

Excess sebum can be oxidised by UV rays, creating irritations and redness that will sustain and produce even more imperfections. Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care contains silica that has the ability to absorb sebum and thereby provide a long-lasting shine control and mattifying result.

I’m actually a little disappointed to find out that alcohol denat is the third ingredient listed on the ingredient list. Although alcohol has the ability to control oiliness which is great for people with extremely oily skin but it may cause skin irritation to some people I believe.


24-Hour Ultra-Hydrating Texture

Its ultra light creamy texture easily absorbs onto the skin and provides a matte and powdery finish. Vichy believes that when skin is dehydrated, dead skin cells accumulate and thereby creating more imperfections.

I couldn’t find many hydrating ingredients on the ingredient list except glycerin and isopropyl lauroyl sarcosinate. This new improved Hydrating Care has an increase of 2% glycerin to provide comfort and 24-hour intense hydration to the skin.

    just stumbled across your site while searching for reviews for this product. I’m a little confused though, is the Hydrating Care a serum or moisturizer?

  2. Shirleen says:

    Hi Lynne,

    Hydrating Care is a moisturizer. ;-)

  3. lili says:

    what is the difference between serum and a moisturizer or a cream, thx

  4. Shirleen says:

    Hi Lili,

    Serum is like a nutritional supplement, penetrating deep into you skin and energizing it from within. You can choose from hydrating, brightening, Vitamin C, anti-aging serums.

    Moisturizer or cream helps to seal in the serum’s nutrients and also to provide moisture to the skin.

  6. Shirleen says:

    Hi Kiki,

    Due to its alcohol content, I reckon it may not be suitable for your skin.

Got something to say? Go for it!
