Vichy Spa Shower Gel Head to Head

vichy-spa-gel-oil-soap

Vichy is the master of skincare, but I don’t usually think of them as my whole body skin. Vichy is known for face skin care. They are moving from face to body with their new shower gels. We tried both the oil and the cream to see which Vichy Shower Gel reigns supreme.

I started with the Oil version of the shower gel. This one is for all skin types from dry to oily and even sensitive. It has magnesium, copper and zinc to help your skin glow. It has a light soapy smell that is fairly subtle. I found the gel-oil to be very difficult to get out of the bottle. No matter how much a squeezed, I could never get a good stream out. Since it doesn’t really froth up a lot that made for some tricky showers. I felt like I could never get a good clean.

I didn’t give up though, because I had another Vichy cleanser to try.

Next I moved the Vichy Spa Shower Gel –Cream. This one has the same distinct smell so if you like it (or don’t) then you will have an easy decision. It’s also for all skin types, so everyone is in luck. The Cream has shea butter and white clay in it for intense comfort and hydration and to help soften your skin. Unlike the oil, this cleanser comes out of the bottle easily and gets nice and frothy. I love how soft this cleaner is on my skin. My skin feels almost instantly smother and softer after using it.

I am so glad that I didn’t give up on Vichy, because I love this Gel-Cream. I am sure that some people will prefer the oil version, so go with your gut on what you think you will like best!

Luckily, as an adult there are a whole new group of adult friendly acne fighters that you won’t be embarrassed about using.

Garnier Pure Control

It probably sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t. Garnier really does make an affordable and effective acne line that is so simple and foolproof. I got addicted to the Deep Pore Exfoliating Cream Scrub pretty quickly for giving my face a deep clean. They also have this amazing duo that is perfect for on the go. There is the Targeted Gel Treatment and Anti-Pimple Tinted Roller that are discreet treatment and concealer to cover up the redness.

Smashbox Photo Finish More Than Primer Blemish Control

When I found out that Smashbox was making a primer to help me fight acne and keep my skin clean, I knew there was finally a brand who really understood me. This is really is so much more than a primer for under my foundation. It’s a protecting layer and a salicylic acid acne treatment. It doesn’t even feel like you are fighting acne, just going about your normal makeup routine.
