Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa Mask - A Review

Being cursed with oily skin, I often forget the importance of moisturizing my skin. When I find my skin looking dull and red, it is often because I haven't been moisturizing enough. With the seasons changing, I'm finding my skin drier and more sensitive, so I've started making a point to moisturize at least once a day to keep my skin healthy. One of the products that has been a skin-saver in the past month, has been the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa Mask. Not technically a moisturizer, this mask has been making my skin look absolutely radiant.

This product is meant to offer deep moisture to your skin as an overnight treatment. It's full of hyaluronic acid which helps infuse maximum moisture into your skin at night, which is when it is most prone to being replenished. It's also meant for sensitive skin.

The instructions suggest to apply a thick layer, but I only need a very small amount in order for my skin to be coated. I supposed you could apply it heavily as it does absorb quite quickly into the skin. The mask is quite thin in texture and gel like, but very very moisturizing. The texture of the product feels quite slippery upon application, but it takes no time to sink into my skin. For those of you familiar with Hydraluron, it has a similar texture, but thicker, and moisturizing. Vichy claims this product is non-greasy and I agree - it doesn't feel greasy at all on my skin, and it doesn't leave any marks on my pillow at night. It hasn't given me any break outs and my skin looks amazing the next morning. Perhaps it's the lighter texture of the mask that my skin is digging, but I don't think my skin has gotten along so well with such a high level of moisture before.When I wake up after applying the mask, my skin is plump and nourished. Applying foundation in the morning is a dream as my skin is so soft. As my skin is oily, I can't really speak to how well it moisturizes a drier skin type, but my skin is definitely happy and looking much healthier since I started using this product. On top of how well it performs, it smells absolutely heavenly. The scent isn't too strong in my opinion, but if you're not a fan, it quickly dissipates after application anyway.

I highly recommend this product if you're looking to add a little something extra in your skincare routine. Not only does it smell delicious and feel luxurious, it actually works very well at moisturizing my skin and leaving it looking really healthy in the morning. And for once, the product isn't too heavy for my oily skin.

Thank you for reading and have a great day!
