I’ve out in the sun alot lately.  Between gardening,birthday parties and a Baseball game my skin has gotten significantly darker in a short amount of time.  Recently I was sent the Vichy Ideal Soleil Double Usage After Sun care which has really transformed my skin. Normally after being exposed to the sun, my skin feels dry. Although I am a Woman of colours I do burn very bad and that too, irritates and dries out my skin. The Vichy Ideal Soleil Double Usage After Sun care is a double use after sun care that can be used on wet and dry skin, to replenish skins hydration. There are a few key elements of the Vichy Ideal Soleil Double Usage After Sun care, that  made me fall in love with it and I wanted to share what they are.

Vichy Ideal Soleil Double Usage After Sun care  Key elements:

It provides 48 hour nourishment to the skin, I found that after being out in the sun although I was darker my skin lacked the Radiance I was looking for. I applied the sun care after a shower and I noticed that my skin didn’t feel as irritated and “burnt” as it did, and my skin was amazingly hydrated. I was able to skip the body lotion process and just wear the after sun care. Another key element for me is,Its great for sensitive skin and extends a tan for a longer period of time. Which means you don’t have to spend time in the sun to get that “Tan” Along with that, as with alot of Vichy products the after sun care is also infused with Thermal Water to fortify, soothe and regenerate the skin.

It is Fragrance free but I didn’t notice a slight clean scent when I used it, it wasn’t overpowering but I could definitely smell it on my skin for a few hours after showering. The technology of the Vichy Ideal Soleil Double Usage After Sun care is quite unique because its the first Tan beautifying after sun care that can be used in the shower or on wet skin.
