Vichy Normaderm Total Mat Fresh Hydrating Gel Review

Ok now I must confess that Vichy Normaderm is officially my favorite skin care range. There is no product from this brand that has not impressed me till date. Being oily skinned girl during the summers, I stock up on primers and mattifiers to keep my skin fresh all day. Here is one such amazing skin care product.

Product Description: A fresh hydrating gel that mattifies and leaves a clean skin sensation for 12 hours. Skin care formula with high concentration of perlite. This natural ingredient of volcanic origin has been chosen for its strong absorbing power. Combined to micro-powders with ”blotting effect” it absorbs oil / sebum and perspiration on the surface of the skin. Results: Skin is perfectly mattified. With Normaderm Total Mat, you get the feeling of clean skin all day. Product efficacy has been proven under extreme conditions: stress, heat, humidity and physical effort. Tested under dermatological control, this formula is suitable for sensitive skin.


Vichy’s Commitment:
– Paraben-free
– Hypoallergenic
– Non comedogenic
– Oil-free
– Tested on sensitive skin
– With soothing and fortifying Vichy thermal spa water
Price: Rs. 790/- for 30 ml. 
Ingredients: Aqua, Dimethicone, Alcohol denatured, Glycerin, Propylene glycol, Lauryl methacrylate/Glycol dimethacrylate crosspolymer, Perlite, Nylon-66, PEG-12 dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, Salicylic acid, Sodium polyacrylate, Sodium hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Ammonium polyacryldimethyltauramide, caprylyl glycol, Biosaccharide GUM-1, Parfum
It is a gel which spreads easily and quickly mattifies the skin. The matte effect lasts easily for 4-5 hours even in extreme summers. This can be used as a primer and it helps the foundation blend easily and also helps the makeup last longer. The packaging is very cute and simple. It is opaque so you wouldn’t know when it would get over. That’s the only issue with the packaging.
This product is a blessing for extremely oily skin. I personally would advice this to only for those with oily skin and those who are looking for a primer with good ingredients. It does contain silicone but that helps in shrinking the pores temporarily and keeps the skin matte and fresh. I use it only during the summers.
One tube would last me about 2 months if used daily during the summers. It depends on how many times you use it or how oily your skin is.
Rating: 4/5 I wish it was priced lesser. 790 bucks for just a mattifier is pricey for any Indian.
Final Words: If you have extremely oily skin, then this is definitely going to help you a lot in the summers. It keeps the excess oil at bay and the skin remains fresh all day. It also works as a makeup base so it is a 2- in 1 product. Vichy products are free of parabens so it suits sensitive skin as well.
