Beauty Review : Vichy ProEVEN Cleansing Foam / ProEVEN Daily / ProEVEN Night / Aqualia Thermal UV

A while back, I had attended a Vichy Works For Me Event, where skincare experts analyzed our skin and prescribed a specific line for each of us depending on our needs. For me, that line was ProEVEN, which targets dark spots and uneven skin tone. I’ve been using it for a while now, surprisingly, since I usually switch up my skincare quite often due to blogging. So here’s what I have to say about it!

Vichy ProEVEN Brightening Cleansing Foam

Key Points :
* Enriched with Ceramide Bright, Vitamin C and LHA.
* Gently exfoliates skin to remove dark dead cells to reveal smoother, newer-looking and more radiant skin.

Thoughts :
* Provides a deep cleanse without drying the skin.
* Skin did feel smoother and seemed brighter.
* A little goes a long way — just use a pea size, lather it up really well in your hands and use that to wash your face.
* If you use it directly on the skin first, I find you’ll end up using too much and it might be too drying for the skin in this case.

Vichy ProEVEN Advanced Daily Dark Spot Corrector

Key Points :
* Visibly reduces the look of dark spots. Brighter skin tone. More uniform complexion with long-lasting results.
* Enriched with an antioxidant complex PhE-Resorcinol, Ellagic Acid and exfoliant LHA.
* Works on multi-ethnic skin and spots of different intensities.

Thoughts :
* Has a very runny liquid-like texture that feels very lightweight.
* Contains subtle iridescent pearls, which helps brighten your overall complexion.

Vichy ProEVEN Night Overnight Concentrate Dark Spots & Uneven Skin Tone

Key Points :
* Skin infusing mask effect technology with Ceramide Bright, LHA & Vitamin C.
* Skin resurfacing and brightening effect from the 1st morning. Effectively reduces the look of dark spots in only 4 weeks.
* Can use once a week as a mask and/or as nightly skincare.

Thoughts :
I’m not really sure if the Day vs Night works better, as I’ve been using both products, as they’re meant to work best together! I noticed near the beginning when I switched to this line that I saw immediate results. I even had a makeup client of mine compliment me and asked if I was wearing any makeup. When I told her no, she said she thought my skin looked “flawless”. LOL! Not sure if she was just being polite though! But my skin, in my opinion, did seem more refined and better.

The dark spots that I’ve had for a long time did lighten a bit and afterwards maintained the same intensity over time — meaning it didn’t get any worse or darker. But they definitely have not disappeared. Most people who notice my older dark spots generally think that they’re faint birthmarks vs actual sun damage.

Some of the newer dark spots that have popped up do seem to have faded much better than the older ones. So I think this product works better when you catch the newer spots early vs trying to fix the older ones.

For me, the drastic change kind of happened in the early stages and then results kind of plateaued, so things kind of looked/remained the same for a while. Overall, I do really like this line from Vichy and the fact that I’ve emptied the ProEVEN cleanser and have almost emptied the Night cream shows that I found it to be quite effective as a topical treatment. I also preferred this over the Vichy Idealia line.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal UV 24HR Hydrating Cream SPF 25

Key Points :
* To protect the results of ProEVEN, while preventing future dark spots from appearing, we were advised to also use an SPF product.
* Is a fortifying and hydrating moisturizer used to help the skin become more supple, comfortable and less vulnerable to dryness.
* Provides a broad-spectrum SPF 25 to protect the skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays, while helping prevent sunburns.

Thoughts :
* I really like the air-tight pump packaging. Very compact and easy to carry around.
* Product feels lightweight on the skin and didn’t leave a white cast.
* Fragrance was slightly stronger than what I’m used to though, however has a very fresh scent.
