Review: Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum

vichy serum

Looking for a new power house serum?! Look no further! This is the BEST skincare product I think I have ever discovered. This baby has worked wonders for my skin!

I have skin (duh!) that likes to be really finicky and complicated. Darn, you normal skin types out there! I have oily skin that also likes to be dehydrated. yay me! So when I am not battling the shine, I am fighting with unsavory texture from a dry epidermis. For the longest time, I just didn’t know what to do. Not moisturizing enough exacerbated the dehydration but over moisturizing maybe my skin oily. Until, my hangouts at ULTA paid off!

I had seen Vichy products around but never took the time to explore the line, mostly because it was not readily available. Well, when ULTA started carrying it, I was able to play at the store and get a better, or first impression, of what the product was like. ESPECIALLY for the texture of the product. I need hydration without any heaviness.

As you can see the in the picture it is a very thin formula. (Yes, I know that it looks a little gross, whats a girl to do?)

As I was getting my thoughts together, I wanted to check out Vichy’s website to see what they claim this product can do. Here is there description:

Ingredient Innovation

Reinvented with advanced Dynamic Hydration technology to help distribute & lock water in all facial zones, preserving the freshness of beauty. Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and Aquabioryl™ known to replenish the hydration with water and form a protective film. Contains fortifying and soothing Vichy Thermal Spa Water. Paraben-free. 


Our moisturizing serum goes one step further in understanding skin dehydration. Beyond replenishing water loss, the reinvented Power Serum evenly distributes water to balance dry skin, target dry patches, and plump dehydration lines. Skin appears more luminous over time, giving the complexion a healthy glow.


Ultra-refreshing, lightweight serum absorbs instantly into skin, leaving a velvety soft finish.


Oil-free. Non-comedogenic. Non-acnegenic. Allergy-tested. Suitable for sensitive skin. Tested under dermatological control.

PREACH HONEY PREACH! When I purchased this product originally, I didn’t read what this could do for my life. I purchased it on a whim and hoped for the best. I am now well through a second bottle and I don’t think I can live without it.

I 100% agree that it helps to balance the skin and decrease dehydration.  I find that my skin is baby soft and glows from within. And on top of all of that, it really is lightweight so  don’t find that it sits on the skin at all. I don’t even need to use an additional moisturizer on top.

I 10/10 recommend this to everyone. I think if you are someone like me, you definitely need this in your life. I think if you are someone that needs an extra step of moisturization to combat dryness, I think this would also be great to intensify other your other lotions or creams without creating any further heaviness from too many products.

Moral of the review: RUN, don’t walk, and get this in your life!
