I've been meaning to mention this serum for a couple of weeks now. Sent to me by the ever generous Paula, I was waiting on my HG Estée Lauder Idealist to finally give up the ghost so I could give Vichy a proper trial.
First impressions? I really like it. It's on the market (for €34 in Boots) to compliment LiftActiv day and night cream, of which I have neither but it's complimenting my Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream superbly, Thank you very much. Whatever Vichy do, they seem to do well.

|I found the dropper waaay too generous, one small pea size drop needed Maximum|
While it makes some pretty astounding claims, I must admit that I'm loving the effects I've found after a fortnight. My skin definitely seems 'velvetier' and somewhat lifted/tighter, that's a good thing, right? It has worked on refining my pores too and provides a lovely base for makeup.
LiftActiv won't replace my Estée Lauder Idealist in the long term but right now it's getting a lot of love from me. It's a definite consideration if you'd like something to work on the beginnings (middles or ends) of wrinkles or crow's feet.
