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 Rich Cream targets this moisture loss by rehydrating dry and very dry 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 Rich 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 sensitive skin, the skin is left feeling dewy, fresh and hydrated for up to 48 hours.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula change disappointment I’ve been using the Aqualia Thermal Rich cream for years now and it’s been almost a month that I’m using the new version of it (they changed the formula) and my skin has been dryer than ever and so so dehydrated. It’s a real disappointment as the old and original version really changed, cleared up and hydrated my skin. But now it’s worse than it’s been in a long while. I’m very disappointed with this formula change and I think for a ‘rich’ hydrating cream, it does exactly the opposite. Even the texture went from soft and fluffy to hard and you have to basically scrape it out of the bottle and it sits on your skin, doesn’t penetrate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I have a very dry skin and sensitive. I am from Brazil and we do not have many options of moisture for dry skin in my country. So I used to ask the dermatologist to prescribe special moisture Taylor made for me. When I used to travel I tried several moisture from Top brands like shiseido, Lancôme, La Mer etc. One day in Ulta a lady introduced me this wonderful moisture. No question, this one is the best, makes my skin feels hydrated and no irritation. I always buy Vichy moisture when I came to US or Europe on vacation. I use everyday. Vichy, in South of Brazil there are several people that came from Germany, Poland... Please give us the option to buy this product in Brazil.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I highly recommend this product. I started using a week ago and can't believe the improvement in my skin. I have had dry, flakey, red sensitive skin for a year and it was getting worse. I tried numerous creams in all price ranges and everything made it worse. After 2 days of using it the red was completely gone and a week later all the dry flakey skin disappeared. My skin is smooth, soft and looks healthy again. I am 57 years old and this is the first face cream I've found that addressed all my problems. I also use the night mask and serum and I love them. Vichy is a must try product for every age.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely feeling I'm 47 and just become menopausal. I've always had awkward skin and it was becoming worse. Tight dry but not flaky, oily in the T zone, open pores, prone to the odd spot and always had that feeling that there was a layer that needed to be scrubbed off. I exfoliated regularly and moisturised well. I took the Vichy test online and it suggested I try the Aquilla range. I was a little worried at first as I don't like 'moist' skin. I was worried my foundation would slide off and I'd have an oil slick look. Anyway three weeks in and after the usual and expected adjustment period I'm glad I took the plunge. My skin is clear of spots so far and has a nice plump look to it and it does glow but not in a wet way! It feels fabulous and my makeup stays put, it goes on nicely to start with, non of the patchiness I used to get. I would definitely recommend this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I love this and the serum. I have very dry skin and this works great. My skin is also very sensitive and for once I've found something that doesn't irritate my skin and actually works. I like that it doesn't have a strong scent, give me a product that works over one that smells good any day. I find that this product doesn't stay sticky on my face. I've been very happy with this and the serum so far now for 1wk. I use them both twice a day and have noticed fine lines are disappearing and the texture of my skin is much better. I'm an Esthetician and quite impressed Vichy, kudos on great products!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Bye Dry I Received this as a #freesample from TOPBOX #trywithtopbox. I am a very picky person when it comes to selecting a moisturizer, and one I am able to use day and night at that. This moisturizer has changed my skin for the better. I use this day and night as apart of my regular routine now. It is so light weight but packs a punch of hydration to the skin. I have always been skeptical of hydrating product because of how heavy they are in the skin but this product is so lightweight I can’t even feel on the skin after I have applied! If you are looking for something to change your life, this product is it! #freeproduct #thankyouvichy

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for dry patches I received this product to try by Topbox Circle. I have oily-combination skin but I have the occasional dry days. It is on those days that this moisturizer has really helped. I usually get dry patches on my nose or around my mouth so I've been spot moisturizing after using the Aqualia Thermal Rehydrating Serum. It is a thicker consistency than I like so I wouldn't use a lot or all over but for those people who do have very dry skin this could be the one. The scent is subtle so it is great to use at night if you are sensitive to scents when trying to fall asleep (I am). Good product but I don't see myself purchasing it as an all over moisturizer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is good for most dry skin I bought this cream for both my sister, who has combination skin, and me, who has exceptionally dry skin. We both liked it very much. She is using it with the Aqualia Thermal and she sees a reduction in lines and she says her skin looks healthier. As for me, I used it with a serum I was already using, and the cream wasn't emollient enough for me. I am the exception to any rule, however, because I've always had very dry skin and now a medical condition has made it twice as dry. I used this cream along with a very emollient prescription cream on my face but I still think it was a better moisturizer than the ones I've tried from the Department stores. I think that, in time, my skin may become less dry as the weather gets warmer and more humid. But I will continue to buy this moisturizer, especially for my sister.
