I am all about anti-aging treatments, so you can imagine how excited I was to receive Vichy LiftActiv With Rhamnose 5 Percent Day For Dry Skin in my Beautyfix Kit this season. It’s chock-full of amazing ingredients which, in the short time I’ve been using the product, have proven effective in more ways than one. My dryish, sensitive skin looks and feels so much better—fewer fine lines, a smoother texture and an increase in skin “plumpness.” And unlike many effective anti-aging treatments, this one does not dry my skin out in the slightest. Win, win, win, win!
So, how does this stuff work, exactly? Glad you asked. First of all, it contains a healthy amount of the all-star emollient shea butter (the first ingredient on the list). But that’s not even the best part. A 5% dose of Rhamnose—a naturally derived plant extract that penetrates deeply to boost cell turnover and reveal healthier, younger-looking skin—is what makes this anti-aging treatment a veritable fountain of youth in a bottle. As if that weren’t enough, it’s also got one of my most important skin care must-haves: vitamin C. In case you didn’t know, vitamin C works to defend our skin against free radical damage that leads to further aging woes. It also works to diminish the look of spots, giving us a fresher, more even-toned complexion.
Really, as far as anti-aging treatments go, Vichy LiftActiv With Rhamnose 5 Percent Day For Dry Skin is one of the most comprehensive I’ve had the privilege of trying. Did you get this one in your Beautyfix kit? If you did, how did you like it?
