The product has a fresh scent, which is also a flowery. Here, the slightly flowery yet discreet scent very pleasant to me. The scent is also then vanished pretty quickly. The consistency of the moisturizer is creamy and not too tight. This allows the product dosing well and apply. The cream is absorbed relatively quickly and leaves no residue. After a good half week I could feel my skin of improved day to day. Likewise, my skin looked clearer and relaxed definitely kept out. My skin has changed really positive over the past weeks. The blemishes are reduced. The skin feels cared for, and even if the blemishes do not disappear completely, a total of the skin has changed definitely. The cream reduces irregular complexion.
I'm always trying to find the perfect combination of products for my combination skin and prefer something light, yet intensely moisturising. Vichy products, although a little pricey are great value for money. I always find that they stretch really far as you don't need to use much with each application. It is particularly easy to control application size with this product as there is a push-to-dispense style top.
I use this product at night (because I like to use something with SPF during the day) and love it's clean fresh smell. It doesn't smell too sweet - I always thing it's more like fresh cut grass. It smooths easily over my skin and when I wake my skin still feels soft, supple and hydrated.
The main downside, apart from it being a little bit expensive, is the size of the bottle. I'd love to get just a little bit more in there, rather than just the 50mls! And while I can't say it prevents imperfections, it certainly doesn't irritate my skin and cause heaps more blemishes and it does a great job keeping it soft and hydrated.
