      Love and use several products from Vichy line, but recommend staying away from this one. Did not smell good at first use and smell got so bad after a week, I discontinued use. Contacted Vichy and was surprised they never responded.

      Comments about Vichy Idéalia Life Serum:

      I got this serum as a sample and was wary about trying it, since my face tends to be very sensitive and dry. To my surprise, it didn't burn when I put it on. A good sign! I think it smells a little bit like hairspray, but my nose is very sensitive and the smell faded quickly once the product dried on my skin. I usually just get a pea-sized amount and rub it onto my fingertips before patting it on. If I go any heavier, the product doesn't soak in and peels off in goopy gel balls. A little goes a long way! I use before bed 2-3 times a week and have noticed on the second week now that my skin is more radiant and looks healthier. Overall, I will likely be purchasing after my sample runs out!

      Comments about Vichy Idéalia Life Serum:

      So soft & smooth going on, feels great. I use it between a toner & moisturizer. Although it's meant for anti aging, it has actually done wonders for my cystic acne along my jawline. I've struggled for many years with painful acne & since using this serum it has almost completely disappeared, with noticeable results in a couple of weeks.

                So far no huge results with any wrinkles but OMG this smells great. I'm so in love with the smell that I can't wait to use it, just to smell that sent again. When I put it on it glides on well and absorbs quickly. It leaves my skin super soft but I am still conscious of the very slight wrinkles that I don't as of yet see a change. Going to try it a bit longer to see tho...

                    Another Vichy product that fell short for me. This product DOES NOT ABSORB into the skin! It goes on smooth, feels nice, but even after 30 minutes, it is still sitting on top of your skin. I had a little mosquito bite that was bugging me and I hate to scratch at bug bites, so I rubbed it, and to my surprise, the moisturizer beaded up under my fingers. So I tried rubbing on my forehead, and sure enough, little rolls of product. GROSS! Spending more money on this product was a waste. I saw other reviews include comments about breakouts: I too have had a couple of breakouts, so I will be returning this bottle tomorrow. (Brand owned by L'Oreal... bummer.)

                        This is great to use in the daytime before applying foundation or mixing it with your foundation because it has a pearl luminosity w/o the overdone highlighters ppl are using now. This gives your skin a beautiful natural glow! I'm on my second bottle and will continue to purchase just for this reason!! As far as benefits of a serum hmm this is more like a lotion but it is worth it if you want glowing skin!!

                            Hi Celeste! Although the Vichy Idealia Life Serum is not specifically for removing dark spots, it transforms skin quality, revives glow, evens complexion, refines pores and smoothes lines. We hope this information is helpful.

                          I loved this product the first time I bought it. But the second bottle is a different consistency. more like a lotion and not a clear serum. would prefer the clear serum. Did I buy an old version? is the formula different?
