New Vichy Normaderm Hyaluspot gel

Vichy launches Normaderm Hyaluspot gel


February 28 sees the launch of Normaderm Hyaluspot from skincare brand Vichy. This is an invisible gel for sensitive skin designed to fight blemishes in two hours and clear spots within 48 hours, without leaving a trace of a mark. Natural skin moisturiser Hyaluronic Acid works to fight bacteria, using anti-inflammatory properties to heal and soothe; whilst Salicylic Acid and LHA purify from the inside of skin to eliminate the spot. Normaderm Hyaluspot (priced at £10.50 for 15ml) will be available from Boots.


I think there's quite a few of us out there that have tried lots and lots of spot treatments trying to find the perfect one that leaves us with the clear skin we dream of. How many of you will be grabbing one of these??

Cara Delevingne

There's no real reason from this post apart from to admire the beauty that is current Burberry model Cara Delevingne. I just love her! Not only is she a great model she has a fun, hyper personality to go with it.

La Roche Posay Efficlar Duo

What they say

"Pores are unclogged and purified to help reduce the development of future breakouts. Helps to reduce skin imperfections leaving skin looking clearer and feeling smoother."

What I say

I'd never heard of this product untill I came across it being reviewed on YouTube, since then its pretty much all I've seen all over YouTube and all over the beauty blogs. From the reviews I saw of this product it sounded like something that would be good for me.

The anti-blemish moisturiser claims to reduce the development of breakouts and helps reduce skin imperfections, just what I needed. I don't have ache or particularly bad skin but I do get spots frequently and more often than not they will scar and don't seem to shift for at least a couple of weeks.

I have been using this for about 3 weeks and its a bit of a love/hate product for me, which is disappointing as I had high hopes and wanted to love it more than I do. I apply a thin layer of the cream all over my face in the evening after I have cleansed to let it work its magic over night. The reason I love this is that it does reduce the redness and size of my spots and my skin looks visibly clearer. The odd thing is that It seems to be giving me smaller pimples at the same time. I don't know how it's possible to get rid of spots and give me more at the same time, but it does. Maybe it's because I havent been using it long so il stick with it for now. 

I would recommend this product though as it does improve your skin and I've heard so many good things about this product, I just think It didn't suit my skin very well. 

If you have any questions about the Effliclar Duo just leave a comment and thanks for reading. I've decided to give blogging another go after a massive break, and thought this would be a good starting post.
