Hope you all are in pink of your health and enjoying springs as well as various awesome posts which are daily uploaded on our favorite Wise She. Today’s review is about Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing purifying Gel for oily skin.
I decided to try these products, as Vichy Lab.are well known for their awesome range of products. In our town it is very difficult to find Vichy products, so I took the course of online shopping and placed the orders for these two great products. That E-commerce site was fast enough to deliver these products within 4 days of placing my order and generous enough to gift 30 ml.of Vichy Normaderm Deep cleansing Gel as free sample . Lets proceed on with the review of this beauty-

My take on VICHY NORMADERM Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel:
Packaging: This is a sample product; the packaging is different than the actual regular packaging. The product is housed in small green coloured opaque plastic bottle with a white screw open cap. The regular size of 100 ml. comes in green translucent tube with white flip top cap and 200 ml.comes in green translucent bottle with pump dispenser, the cap of which is white in colour.
Texture and Smell: As already mentioned the cleanser is in gel form the consistency of which is slightly runny and is slightly greenish in colour. It has a very mild subtle fruity smell which feels nice and disappears within a minute or two after washing it off with water.
Being gel in texture, this face wash is really good for oily skin- it is light weight, easy to work with and lathers well. Every time what I need is like 50 paise coin size amount to effectively wash my skin(however the mouth of the bottle is a bit wide and I end up with more than the required amount but Iam sure this would not be a case with the regular packaging due to the presence of flip open cap).
It cleanses skin well and gives a squeaky clean feel. It is easy to wash away this cleanser and you don’t need lots of water to get rid of the soapy feel on the face. Being alcohol and soap free it didn’t strip my skin the way some cleansers did.As an added bonanza this cleanser is free from Parabenes too, so I always rest assured that Iam not treating my skin with harsh and harmful chemicals.
However I have some rants also, I have oily acne prone skin which needs some special treatment to remain pimple-free and clear but sadly this cleansing gel is doing nothing in this front. The good thing is that it is not causing fresh severe acne break-outs (read allergic reaction here), but it is not doing anything for my existing acne either-neither clearing them nor reducing them
What I like about Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel:
- Lightweight gel texture.
- Pleasant smell.
- Lathers well.
- Cleanses skin well.
- Didn’t strip the natural moisture from my skin.
- Every time I need just a small amount and don’t have to waste lots of water to wash it off.
- Free from Soap, Alcohol and Parabene.
What I don’t like about Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel:
- Not easily available.
- Didn’t work effectively on my existing acne.
Shall I recommend it?
It is a nice cleanser in my humble opinion. It is light weight, in gel form i.e.suitable for oily skinnies, smells great and lathers well. It cleanses skin very well but if you are looking for some heavy duty cleanser to get rid of your various skin problems then you can very well skip it. All in all it is mild and gentle on your skin since it is free from harsh chemicals-so it never makes your skin feel dry, stretchy and uncomfortable post using this face wash.
