Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum: Review, Price


Review, Price, Buy Online Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum

By Contributor: Ananya

In the ever elusive search for the perfect serum for my sensitive skin, I have found only a few products that I gush over and am absolutely in love with. Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum fits the bill perfectly. I have been using the Vichy skin care product for more than 2 weeks now and I naturally gravitate towards it leaving everything else, I have been using of late, aside. Let’s start with the review.

Vichy Claims: Powerful 48-hour hydration in a lightweight serum suitable for all skin types, including combination. Ultra-light texture softens and deeply comforts skin all day, without stickiness or oiliness. Our moisturizing serum goes one step further in understanding skin dehydration. Beyond replenishing water loss, the reinvented Power Serum evenly distributes water to balance dry skin, target dry patches, and plump dehydration lines. Skin appears more luminous over time, giving the complexion a healthy glow. Oil-free. Non-comedogenic. Non-acnegenic. Allergy-tested. Suitable for sensitive skin. Tested under dermatological control.


My Review of Vichy Serum:

For this water based, perfumed serum, a little goes a long way. I have found that pumping it only once is enough for my face. I sometimes use it as a night time cream after cleansing my face. During the day, I use the dynamic hydration serum in conjunction with another product be it a sunscreen or a BB cream. It’s perfectly allowable and actually recommended to be used with other products. The first time I used it, my skin did look much brighter and visibly softer. Though for younger skins, some hydrating serums do work well but this one in particular (as I have read) actually works quite well with somewhat older skins with problems like dryness and fine lines.

The vichy serum has a milky, lightweight texture and leaves a layer of moisture over the skin. A little in to the background of its constituents; Hyaluronic Acid can hold 1000 times its weight in water and is a potent hydrant. Also the Aquabioryl is actually known as Fucogel and is a complex plant carbohydrate that is obtained through a bio-technological process. Fucogel protects the skin by forming a layer on it and prevents loss of water through evaporation. It also protects the skin from oiliness. This shows that the aqualia serum does work as a perfect base for make up as it does not stick or feel slippery, and is quickly absorbed into the skin and forms a refreshing and protective covering. It is suitable for sensitive skin as well even though it has a strong fragrance. I use it under my BB cream or powder compact and it works very well by controlling oil and keeping the skin hydrated. It also works well during long hours in an air conditioned environment and quite frankly, I am sticking to it for a long time.

This vichy thermal serum has turned out quite perfect for the summertime and I can’t wait to try it during the winter months. If it works well, it’s a perfect all year round serum and you don’t have to switch to something thicker during the winter months.

The price is a bit on the steeper side for a quantity of 30 ml but it gets negated by the fact that a little amount goes a long way and you can work with a single bottle for a pretty long time. But then again, if it does not suit you from season to season, you might just have to preserve it for the correct season. The main problem is you might by then have moved over to a different product altogether.

Packaging: The vichy thermal serum comes in a pretty blue glass bottle with a pump and a transparent cap. It can be carried in your hand bag or can fit in to your travel kit easily.

Fragrance: It has a mild and refreshing, somewhat aquatic fragrance that instantly works towards uplifting your mood. I was a bit skeptical wondering if it would lead to break outs on prolonged usage due to the perfume and the fact that my skin is pretty sensitive, but so far I haven’t had any break-outs or comedones.


What I love about Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum:

  • Effective, hydrates very well and leaves he skin radiant and supple
  • Attractive and travel friendly and compact packaging
  • No parabens
  • Long shelf life (2 years)
  • Little works a long way
  • Mildly perfumed and soothing on the skin

What I don’t like about Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum:

  • The price is on the steeper side


Price in India: Rs.1800 for 30ml

VNA Rating: 4.5/5

Where to Buy Online in India: religarewellness.com

Conclusion: Overall a great product with a great packaging that’s both attractive and prevents spillage or wastage. Its travel friendly and fits snugly in your handbag. Leaves the skin hydrated, looking radiant and controls oil. If you have specific dryness and dehydrated skin related issues, it’s definitely worth an investment. You can use it in conjunction with your regular moisturiser or make-up base and it comes with a decent shelf life.

  1. I have just bought my bottle after reading all sorts of reviews on the serum, since my regular serum is over.
    The skin I have is pretty weird as it keeps changing with a bit of weather change not really the caffeine intake. I suffer from super sensitive skin that becomes very dry, which leaves my skin red ppl often ask me at work what’s wrong it’s anyways embarrassing for me. Have tried every skin brand from lacto calimine to the most expensive brand to solve my skin issue.. today shiseido benefiance suits me.
    Anyways, post application of the serum i have received compliments and I didn’t need to re apply cream or wash my face in the middle of the day at work due to dryness or redness that I suffer from.
    But I must give you an heads up : if you are sensitive to smell it may irritate you the skin may start burning and may even get red but then after 5-7 mins it’s all ok you may want to purchase the face mist it helps to hydrate.
    You can use it under make up it really gives a glow to the overall face…

  2. Back pain can easily be actually such a lifestyle transforming ailment.
    Alternative treatments for back pain, also understood as complimentary therapies, are actually gaining myriads of fans
    as they are actually quickly coming to be a new strategy of working to
    acquire rid of ache and problems located all over the physical body.
