I had just received this in the most perfect timing! Recently I have been getting the most worst cystic acne every time I get my period. Every month it's been getting worse and worse and worse for about a year now. I have gone to so many beauty stores and I have spent so much money on different face washes and lotions. I received this in the mail and literally after the first use I've noticed a positive change in my face/acne. Cystic acne that I get is not the same as regular pimples so everything I've tried just made everything more inflamed or didn't do anything at all except for this face wash is actually helping to reduce my cystic acne. This face wash makes all the tiny cystic acne bumps go away after a couple days and it makes all the redness go away. It doesn't dry out my face and it actually is putting a little bit of moisture back in. My face will get super oily at first when I get my period and then I'll get some breakouts and then the whole thing will dry out for a few days and then the cystic acne will start slowly going away but with this face wash it makes it go away so much faster! I have looked everywhere for a face wash to help my face and this is one of the only ones I found that actually does what it says and works. I'm so excited that I actually got to try this and it came at the most perfect timing when my face has been at its worst. I would definitely get this if you have any kind of issues like I do because this hormonal cystic acne is awful and painful and washing my face with this helps it go away faster so then I don't pick out my face and they don't get inflamed any worse. My 16-year-old daughter has a little bit of the same issues as me and she started using us as well and it's helping her face also so thank you so much!!!!!
I was given this acne fighting moisturizer to add to my skin care routine as part of the Stellar Product Testing Panel. I have combination skin and occasional breakouts. After using this product I did not have any new breakouts, a positive result. No hormonal changes or added stress during the time I was trying the Vichy Normaderm PhytoAction Acne Control Daily Moisturizer no blemishes broke out on my face.
Adding a moisturizer to my routine was important during this dry winter season. I did not find my skin any less dry outside of my T-zone. Acne control products can cause dry skin so it was good to have no added dryness. I did not feel any added moisture.
The only drawback of this product was the scent. I added this Vichy Normaderm PhytoAction Acne Control Daily Moisturizer to my normal skin routine. I use products with little or no scent and just didn't like the new scent. I would have forgiven the scent if the moisturizer had SPF sun protection.

I would recommend this. Made my skin absolutely flawless. Only thing i did not like is the smell. But that might be a me thing. I dont get a lot of acne but when i do its one pimple and it annoys me.

I love using the Vichy Normaderm PhytoAction Acne Control Daily Moisturizer. It has really helped to control any acne. It's helped reduce and prevent acne. It's good as a moisturizer but I don't prefer to just use it alone, I use another moisturizer once this one dries. I didn't care for how it dries on my face by itself so I added another moisturizer on top and the combination of the 2 have become my perfect skin care routine in controlling acne.

It does everything it promises, I could feel the difference in the first use, after a while my face was clearer and free of blackheads, and my face always feels moisturized
Georgia Girl from Midwest
great combo of ingredients, highly effective. feels wonderful, noticeable results in days.
only issue.... product says can be used under makeup. not so much. it doesn't pill, it just smears. I might have used too much, didn't wait long enough for it to "dry" or it could be the IT CC foundation. regardless, its highly effective and definitely worth buying again.

I fell in love with this cream, removes acne on my face, very much moisturizes the face for the whole day🏼 I also ordered other acne products from Vichy

this is one of the best cleansers I've ever come across! I'm not sure why this one is so different from the rest, but I promise there is something special about it. This cleanser is moisturizing, smells great (very subtle) it has no problems cleaning off a light layer of makeup or getting off waterproof mascara. I normally alternate cleansers often because i get bored but not with this cleanser. I highly recommend this to both oily and dry types because of how well balanced the cleanser is.

I'm very sensitive to smells and I love the scent of this and so far I like the feeling of it. I've been breaking out and have very dry skin except for a few spots on my face that get oily… so I hope this helps with hormonal acne and dry patchy skin & redness.

I have dry sensitive skin with eczema so I struggle to find acne products that are effective without being irritating. I'm surprised how much I like this! It never burns, even on my driest skin days in the middle of December. And it does work really well for my hormonal acne and blackheads, I can tell a difference overnight :) not sure how it would work for oily skin types, but I'd recommend for normal-dry!

I started battling with adult acne with the past few months and kept buying and trying products but nothing seemed to work. Then I decided to try this product and saw a big improvement in a short space of time…about a week. I'm so thankful I found it. It really works,
Cece from West Valley
Does mot dry out my skin which is better than other acne prone products, however does not help like the description states. My skin stays the same after a month using. I would not say it works like other regular moisturizers because this one doesn't have that much mostuirizing.

I had been looking for a good moisturizer for oily skin that I could put on and not realize it's there. Every other "light weight" moisturizer felt good when I first put it on and then an hour or so later, my face felt like an oil slick covered with velvet.
But this moisturizer is nothing like that! A little goes a long way, it absorbs instantly and is incredibly light weight. This moisturizer does not feel greasy at all and I actually forget I put it on. I can already see improvements from the moisturizer which was a nice surprise.
I only use it every other day so far and at this point, I don't see the need to apply it every single day.
All in all, I'm very happy with this purchase and recommend it to anyone with true oily skin that wants a lightweight moisturizer.

It's really hard to find a moisturiser that hydrates but doesn't cause oily skin for combination skin.
I have super sensitive skin and when I apply a product I can instantly tell if my skins is reacting negatively or positively and this product soaks into my skin leaving it full of moisture and nourishment in the best way.
Extremely happy customer

At first I was pretty upset about Vichy discontinuing the Normaderm I used to use faithfully. However, the phytoaction had turned out to be pretty decent. It has given me an even skin tone across my face, isn't oily, and for someone like me with ultra sensitive skin, it has been so amazing!
I honestly wasn't sure at first. At first I thought it was causing burns on my face, but it turned out to actually be something else that was causing that to happen to me! (Go figure). It was just happening coincidentally at the same time as I was using that for the first time. (Lucky me, right?). So I have to close by apologizing to Vichy too for basically flipping my lid on them. The only thing I wish this still had was the silicone and vinyl crosspolymer in it for more filling in of cracks and such and wrinkles. But overall, I give it a 5 out of 5! Thanks for this product!

This lotion is the only thing that has controlled my acne in a long time. My face has cleared up so much while using it. I've purchased twice already and don't see myself switching any time soon!
Karen from Auburn, Indiana

Honestly I've struggled with acne for so long but this has helped me so much. Great for oily skin, and doesn't cling to dry spots. GET IT!!
anonymous from Sumter South Carolina
It has done my skin good. I will buy again. I'm always a bit nervous when I try new products. But this is good.

My first time trying this brand and I must say I'm impressed with how well my skin likes the consistency of the formula. My skin is a combination of both so it does help a lot right now in the cold weather. It's more like a gel moisturizer.
Kamila from Il
Great product! Highly recommend it. Just as described
nkto14 from Montevideo, UY
I ran through two bottles of this moisturizer and every day I like it more. Due to being lightweight my skin absorbs it very fast, leaving a glowy coat which I love. If you're consistent with your routine, in a matter of days your skin will clear so much. Overall it's a nice moisturizer, especially for the summer.
lemoni from undisclosed
It has some scent & it's a gel. Not the most moisturizing product out there, so if your skin is dry moisturize with a separate product. This one controls very efficiently my combo/oily skin and does not break me out! I have tried it under make up too and my face did not feel suffocated or oily during the day. Get this one if you have combo & acne prone skin!
