Today I’m reviewing the Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel, meant for oily skin. This product is slowly becoming my HG! Read on to know why!
About Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel:
· Skin type- oily, acne prone skin

· Result- opens pores, cleanses and purifies skin from deep within

Packaging: The face wash comes in a handy squeezy tube of a bright green color, with a translucent white flip-top cap. [This specific type is the 100mL packaging. The 200mL pack (costs Rs. 990) comes with a pump dispenser.] The packaging is nice, and the translucent body of the tube allows one to see how much of the product is left inside. It is travel friendly too.

Shelf life: 12 months after opening.
My take on Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel: The product has the consistency of a gel, slightly runny, it has a light green tinge to it, and it foams moderately, not too much. The fragrance is mild, and a bit like astringent, but that doesn’t bother me. The gel is easy to use, and it does not leave the skin feeling dry and stretchy. Since I have oily skin, I prefer gel-based or liquid cleansers, as opposed to mousse-like cleansers which tend to leave the skin feeling stretchy. So this particular product passes on that front too. You need a very small amount of product each time, so with twice-daily usage, one tube will last you around 3 months.
Efficacy wise, the skin feels refreshed and squeaky clean, and not dry! Also, the cleanser controls oil secretion decently, though I wouldn’t say that it completely mattifies my face. The number of break-outs is definitely low ever since I started using this product, so I’m happy with the gel wash, since it does what it claims.
Pros of Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel:
· Gel type consistency, does not dry out the skin
· Leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed
· Controls oil secretion
· Minimises breakouts
· A little goes a long way
· Easy to carry packaging
Cons of Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel: None, really!
Verdict: If you have oily, acne prone skin, this one’s a must-try! It does what it claims!
