Vichy Pureté Thermale Nourishing Cleansing Milk & 3-in-1 Micellar Wipes

I have been obsessed with French Pharmacy brands since the time that I was a teenager living in Paris with my Parisian relatives. I would spend countless hours wandering through the aisles finding the things that would not make their way to the states for decades. Vichy is one of my favorite French Pharmacy beauty brands, and I have two products that I am thrilled to share with you.
Vichy Pureté Thermale Cleansing Milk Balm ($16.00 for 6.7 oz. from Vichy and Dermstore): This is a wonderful lightweight, non-lathering, cleansing balm that gently lifts makeup, dirt and impurities, without stripping or irritating the skin. In fact, it effectively hydrates the skin and leaves it soft, smooth and supple. It has a light and clean aroma that is quite pleasant, but it does not linger. You can remove it with water, or with a cotton pad or wash cloth, but there is no need to rinse it.

According to Vichy,

This eye & face cleanser gently removes make-up and impurities while leaving skin hydrated and soothed. This cleansing milk face cleanser gently removes all traces of makeup. Enriched with antioxidant Vitamin E and hydrating glycerin, the formula leaves skin feeling soft and refreshed.

Directions: Apply face cleanser to a cotton pad. Wipe over face and eyes to remove makeup and impurities. No need to rinse.
Ingredients: Aqua / Water • Glycerin • Ethylhexyl Palmitate • Isopropyl Palmitate • Butylene Glycol • Isododecane • Peg-100 Stearate • Carbomer • Glyceryl Stearate • Sodium Hydroxide • Phenoxyethanol • Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) • Disodium Edta • Caprylyl Glycol • Xanthan Gum • Myrtrimonium Bromide • Cetyl Alcohol • Parfum / Fragrance.
Vichy 3-in-1 Micellar Wipes ($7.99 for 25 wipes from Vichy, Walgreens, Dermstore and Amazon): I use makeup wipes all of the time, and these micellar wipes are among my very favorites. They gently and effectively remove every trace of makeup, they are gentle enough for sensitive eyes and skin, and they soothe and hydrate rather than irritate and strip the skin.

According to Vichy,

Micellar cleansing makeup remover wipes instantly cleanse skin in only one-step. The makeup remover formula, enriched with Vitamin E, soothes and refreshes skin. Skin feels softer and more comfortable.

These makeup remover wipes are a one-step cleansing solution that:
1. Cleanse
2. Remove Waterproof Makeup
3. Soothe Skin

Directions: Gently wipe face with makeup remover wipe to remove dirt and all traces of face and eye makeup. Wipe without rubbing face and eyes. Reseal pack to prevent remaining makeup remover wipes from drying out.

Ingredients: Water • Isohexadecane • Dicaprylyl Ether • Hexylene Glycol • Phenoxyethanol • Sobitan Laurate • Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspoylymer • Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate • Propylene Glycol • Aminomethyl Propanol • Lauryl Glucoside • Polyglycerol-2 Dipolyhydroxystearate • Glycerin • Citric Acid • Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate • Tocopherol • Tocopheryl Acetate Code F.I.L. : D208813/1.
Overall Assessment: I have long loved Vichy, and these are two must-haves for me. I highly recommend them! A+

  3. When I was in France I spent so much time in the Pharmacys but it was before I had the internet to look things up. Instead I bought things that were expensive back home and reasonable there. Next time I order from dermstore I'll add the wipes into my order.

  5. The cleansing milk balm sounds nice. I hate the thick, greasy texture of cleansing balms (and they get beneath my nails), so it's nice to see one in liquid form.
