The vichy aqualia thermal dynamic hydration serum was one of the most disappointing products for me I used in the last year. Did it stay so? Let us check out.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum Product Review
Price : Rs 1,850 for 30ml
Since this is a hydrating serum, it is meant for all skin types from dry to mature to oily.
Texture and Fragrance
The Vichy aqualia thermal dynamic hydration serum is a very runny liquid which is light in texture and gets absorbed into the skin in a jiffy. The texture of the serum is light and suits all kinds of skin.

Usage and Results
I use two pumps of vichy aqualia thermal dynamic hydration serum twice a day, morning right after the shower and evening right after the shower to lock in the moisture as the first step of my skin care routine. Once I am done with body lotion, I proceed on with sunscreen in the morning and rest of my nightly regime which includes Estee Lauder ANR for the time being or may be just a sleeping mask.
So, after using this product for almost one to two months, I am not really sure what to say. It does a great job at hydration thanks to sodium hyaluronate or hyaluronic acid. Locks in the moisture and keeps it there. You can see the difference pretty much immediately and the glow persists. Skin is plump and happy and no dry skin patches. Great product to get rid of dullness. Would be great serum for summers as well since it is so light.

But, it has silicones for the starters. And, even if I skip that, I am not very comfortable with its price tag. The vichy aqualia thermal dynamic hydration serum is too expensive for what it gives back. Hydration is not the only thing you expect when you are spending that much. At least I really expected it would do something else as well. But, then, may be this is what it is supposed to do. It does not really claim anything else so let me say that yes it does deliver on what it promises.
Barring the price, I would say that it is a good serum but when it comes it its efficacy, I would really like to see something more from it than just hydration.
