Skin-Clearing Matte Moisture: Vichy Laboratoires Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care

  • Author:

According to Vichy Laboratoires research, breakout-prone skin has more nerve endings connected to its sebaceous glands than clear skin. The increased number of nerve endings over-stimulate and irritate those glands, which results in excess sebum, inflammation, and another dismayed gaze in the mirror.

Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care ($29), a daily moisturizer, is designed to calm those nerve endings and minimize recurring breakouts even in sensitive skin. Formulated with ingredients (including salicylic acid) to soothe inflammation, reduce redness and smooth skin, the light cream also helps to control shine, which is often an issue for blemished-inclined skin.

And does it ever control shine. I've never met a moisturizer that delivers so much moisture with so much matte. The nicely hygenic pump delivers a generous (slightly too generous) dollop of lotion that feels fresh and satisfyingly hydrating on the skin, and leaves a clean, smooth and comfortable matte finish that lasts for hours.

So your personality can shine through instead.

Vichy Laboratoires skincare is available at major drugstores.
