A few weeks ago I headed out to The Deanery – St. James Cathedral Centre for the exclusive #VichyWorksForMe media launch event. I had never been to this event space before, and may have walked into the church thinking that was where it was…
Maybe…maybe not…I’ll never tell.
Ok – I did. Whatever, don’t judge me.
Once I made it tot he right event space, I made my way upstairs where I was greeted with a custom Vichy bracelet and glass of wine.
I was already in heaven…in a Cathedral Centre…get it?
The space was beautiful. Floor to ceiling windows allowed in all the natural light, and also provided a stellar view of the grounds outside.
As I was sipping my wine, I was nibbling on the delicious catering from Daniel et Daniel. How could I pass up on Oreo Beignets? Basically a deep fried Oreo ball. AKA an orgasm in my mouth.
stuffing my face having some snacks it was time for the main event. The Vichy Canada team explained the Vichy Works For Me campaign. They took every day people from across Canada, all at different stages in their lives. Using these every day people, they showcased how each line is beneficial for whatever stage of life you are at.
Vichy Normaderm is ideal for oily, acne prone skin. This is aimed towards people in their 20’s.
Vichy ProEVEN helps with pigmentation, dark spots and dull uneven skin. Geared towards those in their 30-40′s.
Vichy LiftActiv is for those in their 40’s who are concerned with wrinkles, lines, and signs of aging.
Vichy Neovadiol is for those 50+ with mature skin. They may be dealing with their skin aging more so due to menopause.
And finally – the line I believe was created specifically for me. LOL
Vichy Idealia. This is for those always on the go. Living a busy lifestyle and their skin showing signs of fatigue and wear on account of lack of a good nights sleep and a hectic lifestyle.
Umm, yup! That pretty much describes me to a tee!
With so much on our list of top priorities—career, marriage, babies, social life– we don’t want to find a “compromise” balance. We want it all at the same time, and it’s non-negotiable. Besides, why not? We can manage.
After the presentation, there were different stations set up. We had our skin analyzed, and a “prescription” written with their recommendations. Surprisingly, my skin had no sun damage, which is fantastic news. However, it was dehydrated and in need of a little help. As I had guessed, I was told I would benefit from use of the Idealia line (no surprise there) as well as some of their new products.
Vichy Purete Thermal Cleansing Gel
Vichy Purete Thermale 3-in-1 One Step Cleanser
Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep Recovery Night Gel Balm
Vichy Eau Thermale Spa Water
Please note – some of these products are not yet available in store! I’ll continue using them over the next couple of weeks and be sure to share my thoughts and results. As of right now, I can say the Idealia line has already made a huge difference. Event hough I average maybe 5 hours of sleep a night and wake up exhausted – my skin looks refreshed. In fact – I have been getting ID’d more and more at the LCBO, which is amazing seeing as I am
31 much older than the legal drinking age of 19.
The Vichy Purete Thermale 3-in-1 One Step Cleanser is AMAZING. It’s a milky cleanser that doesn’t have to be rinsed off after use. It’s hydrating and is helping unclog my pores. Wins all around, I tell ya!
Stay tuned for full the reviews!
