50 ml

An intense and long-lasting gel cream for normal/combination skin types that provides up to 48 hours of hydration.





Did you know that the skin loses around 500ml of moisture each day which can leave the skin feeling dry and uncomfortable? The new and improved Aqualia Thermal Gel Cream targets this moisture loss by rehydrating normal to combination skin with an intense and long-lasting daily formula inspired by isotonic rehydration. This is a solution created for athletes consisting of water, minerals and sugar, designed to replenish a dehydrated body’s natural fluids.

97% of the ingredients in Vichy’s Aqualia Thermal Gel Cream formula are sourced from a natural origin. The formula, which is enriched with mineral salts, naturally sourced Hyaluronic Acid and plant sugar mannose, works to lock in moisture and reduce water loss. Suitable for normal/ combination skin, the complexion is left feeling dewy, fresh and hydrated for up to 48 hours.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Go back to the old formula please I've struggled with acne since I was 12 years old (I am 22 now) and it wasn't until 3 years ago when I started using this moisturizer (the old formula) that my acne went away and I fell in love with it. I've struggled finding moisturizers that penetrate into my skin rather than sitting at the top of my skin. With the new formula, this sits right on top of my skin and I hate it! My skin doesn't feel like it used to when I used the old formula and because of that I have been breaking out again. I'm really disappointed. This was my all time favourite moisturizer and it really was the cure for my acne. Now I have to search for another one. Please please please bring back the old formula!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product THAT BELONGS IN A PUMP. First, this product is AMAZING. It is lightweight, and absolutely hydrates skin. The formula dries fast, so you don’t have any issue with messy moisturizer face. ;) My skin looks and feels en pointe whenever I use it. In fact, I can apply make up and workout after putting it on with no issue. The gel is great also because it does not travel into my eyes. The caveat to this review, is the THIS PRODUCT NEEDS TO BE IN DISPENSER FORM. Even with washed hands, the product is comprimised by having to dip your fingers into it. I am convinced that if VICHY can come up with a dispenser that allows the entire product to be used with sanitary practices, it will garner a larger adoring fan base.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps reduce fine facial lines Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rehydrating Water Gel leaves my skin very soft, clean and hydrated. It feels very light-weight, absorbs into my skin immediately, is not oily and does not leave a my skin shiny. When I reached my 30's, I started to see fine lines by my eyes and forehead, this was the time to take action. I did not want to use anything heavy or with tons of parabens, silicones and oils which block my pores. I have used Vichy before because they make high quality products. It helps my skin stay hydrated all day especially now with the warm weather approaching. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quenches Skin I've been using Vichy's Aqualia Thermale Mineral Water Gel Face Cream with Hyaluronic Acid cream for a week and have noticed improvements in my skin already! My skin looks hydrated, smooth, and fresh. My pores look a tiny bit smaller which I wasn't expecting. My skin feels so soft! This face cream not only smells pleasant, but absorbs quickly into my skin. While I have heard of the brand Vichy, I hadn't heard about their Aqualia Thermale Mineral Water Gel Face Cream with Hyaluronic Acid. I plan to buy it again as soon as I'm close to running out. I have told a few of my friends about it and once has already bought it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glowing, well hydrated skin I have not liked my skin especially lately. Having extremely sensitive skin makes this worse as I cannot just use any product. I was reading that the ingredients are natural. I first noticed before opening that I loved the blue jar it comes in. I used this after my shower and instantly loved how smooth it felt. It felt like water. I noticed the hydrated skin just the very next day. I use this thermal water every other day and my skin looks and feels so nice. I really love this and after two weeks is when I fully glowed. I don't have too many fine lines yet but around my eyes and cheeks, I do have some that have smoothed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Refreshing. This gel is wonderful for thirsty skin, as soon as it’s applied it’s absorbed with no sticky residue, leaving the skin refreshed and hydrated. The month i have been using it i have noticed a difference, my skin is plumper and the surface definitely smoother with pores and lines less noticeable. I also love the glass pot it comes in, makes it feel more luxurious and looks lovely. Only downside for me is it is quite scented, not an unpleasant scent at all, but i’d rather my skin products were unscented but that’s my personal preference, Would that put me off repurchasing? Not at all as the results are worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, fresh, perfect, lovely, long overdue I never understood why only the rich cream version of this daily must-have basic was available in the US for the last few years. I grew up using the gorgeous light cream and the rich is way too much for me--unless I use it to counter snow and strong winds, it causes breakouts. So, very happy then that this is now in this market. Already trough my second and it is just perfect. Light, zero oily, nice feeling, makes my skin luminous and soft. Love it. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favourite! I received the Aqualia Thermal Gel Cream after I had been using the Aqualia Serum for about a month, and began using them together immediately. The gel cream was just lovely! I find that sometimes, gel moisturisers can be quite heavy and takes a bit of work to really absorb into the skin. Vichy have nailed it here, the gel is a gorgeous luxurious texture and when applied to the skin, gave a cooling, refreshing feel. The product left no residue or stickiness and left my skin feeling revitalised, even after the first use. I'd highly recommend using this product, and i'd definitely recommend picking up the serum to use in conjunction with the gel. But as a stand alone product, I couldn't fault it!
