Dehydration Is (Not) Coming | Vichy Aqualia Thermal Review

With summer coming to a screeching halt, it's time so switch skincare gears and lean towards products that aim to rehydrate and plump the skin. My skin is oily most of the time but can have its short spells of dehydration, especially in  between seasons. For the last few months I have been testing out one of the new offerings from Vichy and I have loved it more and more with each use - the Aqualia Thermal Night Spa

It's a rehydrating mask that is meant to be used at night time, as needed. It has a light gel-creme texture that sinks into the skin quickly and leaves it plump and hydrated by the time you wake up. I use this on top of Indeed Labs Hydraluron on nights where I want an extra kick of moisture and the two are absolutely lovely together.

If you have ever used Chanel's Hydramax / Hydra Beauty Gel Cream, the texture is identical and the price is less than half, with similar results.

It's the perfect hydrating pick-me up for girls with oily/combination skin that want to combat the grease but keep the dehydration at bay at the same time. I use it about twice a week. If you're in Canada you can find Vichy products at your local Shoppers Drug Mart or Rexall, amongst other drug stores. It is not out in the United States yet - but you can explore and shop the rest of the Aqualia Thermal range at http://vichy.ca or http://www.vichyusa.com.



  1. I'm a bit confused, Sandra. So is this a mask or a moisturizer? Are you to peel it off or does this just sink into you skin? Thanks :)

    1. it's a mask that you just leave on and it sinks in and works over night. :)

  2. Hi is it has the silicone feeling? a lot of vichy has...

  3. I bet this will work well with a different sleeping mask too. I have one from the Korean brand Laneige. Some pesky flaky bits are starting to pop up on my skin since the weather suddenly took a turn for the dead of Fall here in the midwest. Thanks for the tip. :)

  4. I LOVE Vichy products! I use the Day Aqualia Thermal and the LiftActiv Nuit, both every day. I don't think I'll be able to use anything else again. :)

  5. Sandra, where do you buy your hydraluron from?

  6. I have combo/oily skin as well and the normal Aqualia Thermal (day?) cream did not work well for me. It didn't do much at all and had a bad scent to it.

  7. Recently, I didnt give lots of consideration to leaving comments on site page articles and have placed comments even much less. Reading via your nice posting, will assist me to do so sometimes.
