I´ve been testing the Vichy Idelia Life Serum for the last few months, and I have to say – for what it is, along with it´s friendly price tag (compared to other similar face serums) – it really does the trick! It´s non-oily, in a light cream consistency and sinks straight into the skin. It´s also hypoallergenic and paraben-free (which are big positives in my opinion), and suitable to all skin types. The latter of which is something I often tend to go for, as I am always testing various brands and products; I need something quite neutral that can fit in with my varied skin care regime.
The serum can be used on it´s own or under a daily moisturiser; I tend to mix it up dependant on if I´m wearing make-up or not, and dependant on the weather. The serum is certainly rich enough to act as a moisturiser, but during the summer months I always have SPF, and both combined work really well together – leaving my skin feel smooth and non-oily.
