As one of the quintessential French pharmacy brands, Vichy offers a huge variety of skincare and hair care products that offer simple (and dermatologist-approved) solutions to everyday concerns. In order to help you navigate this iconic French brand, we’ve selected 10 of the best Vichy products out there; from skincare to hair care, we’re sure you’ll find the right product for you in this selection.
Vichy Minéral 89
Best hydration booster
The best-selling Vichy Minéral 89 is much more than a simple hydrating serum: it’s also a powerful daily booster that fortifies and strengthens your skin barrier through the combined action of hyaluronic acid and Vichy Mineralizing Water.
With a fresh gel texture, suitable for all skin types, Vichy Minéral 89 is perfect to deliver a daily boost of hydration, all the while protecting your skin against external aggressors. In essence, this is one of the best Vichy products for any skin type. As of 2021, you can also look to a new version of this product, the incredibly repairing Vichy Minéral 89 Probiotic Fractions.
Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation 16h
Best high coverage foundation
With so many Vichy Dermablend foundations to choose from, it can be hard to select the right one; but the original Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation is usually a safe bet.
It offers high coverage for acne and blemishes, dark circles, rosacea, vitiligo, tattoos, and scars. It provides a natural finish that’s suitable for all skin types, but it can be easily built up for a more dramatic effect.
Vichy Normaderm Phytosolution Double Correction Daily Care
Best for acne-prone skin
Vichy Normaderm Phytosolution minimizes imperfections and regenerates oily and acne-prone skin. It corrects not only local imperfections, such as whiteheads, blackheads, and enlarged pores, but also global issues such as excess oil and uneven texture.
The light gel-serum texture feels pleasant on the skin and doesn’t create an oily film, making this product perfect for use as a make-up base.
Vichy Liftactiv Supreme Vitamin C Serum
Best for a boost of vitamin C
This Vitamin C booster visibly brightens the skin in as short as 10 days! With a powerful antioxidant action, it minimizes signs of fatigue all the while visibly reducing lines and wrinkles. In short, it boosts the natural luminosity of your skin!
From the first day of use, the skin looks more radiant, better-rested; within 10 days, fine lines are visibly reduced and the skin is brighter. If you feel like your skin needs a little boost, this energy-boosting treatment from the Liftactiv range will definitely help!
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rehydrating Light Cream
Best for long-lasting hydration
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rehydrating Light Cream is a replenishing cream with an anti-pollution effect. It grants up to 48 hours of hydration, all the while protecting the skin against external aggressors.
This formula is specifically designed for normal to dry skin; you can also opt for the Rich Cream for dry to very dry skin, or the Cream Gel for normal to combination skin.
Vichy Neovadiol Compensating Complex Night Care
Best for mature skin
Vichy Neovadiol has always been a popular range; it is designed for post-menopausal women, whose skin deals with specific issues, such as loss of density and firmness. In 2021, the Neovadiol line underwent a bit of a makeover, so it may be time to update your list of favorites.
If you were a fan of the old Compensating Complex Night Care, then you will find the same benefits in the new Vichy Neovadiol Redensifying Revitalizing Night Cream. With hyaluronic acid to ensure deep hydration and promote elasticity, this cream helps you give a smoother, firmer look to your skin. The light and refreshing gel-cream consistency offers a pleasant cooling effect, fighting menopausal hot flashes and promoting restful sleep.
Vichy Dercos Energising Stimulating Shampoo
Best shampoo for hair loss
Vichy Dercos Energising Stimulating Shampoo is the perfect shampoo to complement your anti-hair loss treatment. While it won’t treat hair loss on its own (look to the Vichy Aminexil ampoules for treatment), this shampoo can help thinning hair retain density and strength.
If you’re looking to tackle hair loss with a multi-step treatment, then this dermatological complement shampoo is one of the best Vichy products for you.
Vichy Deodorant Stress Resist Anti-perspirant Treatment 72h
Best for excess perspiration
Vichy offers plenty of trusty deodorant options; among them, our customers love the Vichy Deodorant Stress Resist Anti-Perspirant Treatment 72h. This is a versatile deodorant that controls both body odor and excess perspiration.
Ultra-absorbing minerals keep the skin dry throughout the day, while Perspicalm regulates perspiration during periods of extreme heat or stress.
Vichy Dercos Anti-Dandruff DS Shampoo
Best for oily dandruff
Dandruff is a common scalp concern, so it’s no wonder that one of the best Vichy products on the market is specifically formulated to help you manage it.
This version of the Vichy Dercos Anti-Dandruff DS Shampoo prevents and treats oily dandruff (the kind that “sticks” to the scalp). If you struggle with dry dandruff (that kind that doesn’t stick, but falls down to your shoulders), look for the Vichy Dercos Anti-Dandruff DS Shampoo for Dry Hair instead.
Vichy Idéal Soleil BB Cream Tinted Mattifying Face Fluid SPF50
Best BB cream
It’s hard to pick just one sunscreen from Vichy, so we’re going with our best-seller: the Vichy Idéal Soleil BB Cream with SPF50. This perfecting product is designed for combination to oily skin, as it evens out the complexion while providing a mattifying effect.
If you’re looking for an everyday facial sunscreen with a versatile formula and a light, non-oily finish, then look no further: this is it!
We’ll be honest with you: selecting just 10 of the best Vichy products doesn’t feel like enough–there is so, so much more to explore! If you’d like to get to know this best-selling French brand a little better, feel free to drop by the shop, where you will find every product range from Vichy.
