    Irritates eyes

    By Miss Lipstick Maven

    from Washington, DC

    Comments about Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep Night Recovery Gel-Balm:

    I like the feel of this product and it's very moisturizing but it irritates my eyes to no end. Every night my eyes tear up and burn until I rinse them with cold water. It took a while to determine which product was irritating my eyes. I won't be repurchasing. This is a good product that performs good for the price point but nothing spectacular regardless of eye irritation.

    Bad ingredients

    By JaerY

    from Berkeley, CA

    Pros

    • Absorbs Quickly
    • Goes On Smoothly
    • Moisturizes Well
    • Smells Great

    Cons

    • Not for sensitive skin

    Best Uses

      Comments about Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep Night Recovery Gel-Balm:

      The product feels pretty nice. Smooth, smells amazing, not too light not too heavy, etc. BUT it's got a LOT of bad ingredients, which I did not know at the time of buying this as I was in a hurry. This is why I do some research before buying skincare product. Well, just don't even try this if you have sensitive skin. If you don't have sensitive skin like me, it's a so-so product.

      Still on the fence and not suited for sensitive skin

      By Thrizh

      from Atlanta

      About Me Beauty Conscious

      Pros

      • Goes On Smoothly
      • Long Lasting
      • Not Greasy

      Cons

      • Not good for sensitive skin

      Best Uses

      • Twice a week

      Comments about Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep Night Recovery Gel-Balm:

      I've tried this for a couple of weeks now. The first day it was fine but by the third night my skin was SO irritated and well, just visibly red. So beware this is NOT suited for sentive skin. Now, I'm on the fence cause my skin did look better after the redness went away, so I figured I could try to use this less often. I'm using it about twice a week now and so far so good...

        Comments about Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep Night Recovery Gel-Balm:

        This product went on smoothly but the next morning I woke up with the biggest most painful whitehead ever. My skin was finally back on tract with getting rid of dark spots thanks to the Clarisonic but after using this product my skin is blotchy, red, irritated, and breaking out. If you have sensitive or acne prone skin beware.

        This is a wonderful night cream. It moisturizes my skin, makes it smooth. I love using it overnight. I use it during the day too, if weather is not sunny. I think most people will enjoy it, like me.

          Comments about Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep Night Recovery Gel-Balm:

          I use this product at night with Liftactiv Retinol HA Night. I have found the HA works best for me in conjunction with the sleep recovery product as I am in my 70's and look like I am in my 50's.

              Irritated and Made My Face Red.

              By Beauty and The Best

              from SF, CA

                Cons

                • Doesn't Absorb Well

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep Night Recovery Gel-Balm:

                  I have sensitive skin and use several Vichy products that I love without a problem. This was marked as "Allergy-tested. Formulated for sensitive skin." so I decided to try this product, Idéalia Skin Sleep Night Recovery Gel-Balm. As I was applying this gel-balm, my face began stinging and got very irritated. The next morning, I woke up, my face very red from this product. My face returned to normal after a few days.

                  If you have sensitive skin, I highly recommend avoiding this product or at least testing this out on your hands at a store first. Be sure to read the ingredients; some are clearly not suitable for sensitive skin.

                  Good Skin Cream But Irritates My Sensitive Skin

                  By Ulta Ulta

                  from CA

                  Comments about Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep Night Recovery Gel-Balm:

                  Vichy products have been kind to my sensitive skin but this product irritated my skin. The gel balm is also thin and dried very quickly. I recommend if you have sensitive skin to test this out before purchasing. I am not using this product again.
