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 Best moisturizer ever! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My skin has always been very dry and I've tried everything from serums, heavy creams, vaseline, and every product on the market. I would often apply other moisturizers at least 2-3 times per day and still not get any relief. Not with Vichy! This product goes on smoothly, has a pleasant scent and literally lasts the entire day. My face is no longer dry and finally has the right combination of moisture and hydration. Can't say enough about the Vichy Aqualia Thermal. Absolutely the best product on the market. Hands down!

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 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed with the new formula I have been using this Vichy product for 2 years and repurchased this cream only to be disappointed at how much it has changed. The cream used to be lovely, hydrating, and soft and easy to apply. My face would have a lovely glow to it upon using the product and the product would sink into my skin leaving it soft. This new formula is not hydrating like the old one, smells slightly different, and is not soft like the old version but is very hard to take out of the pot. It doesn't sink into the skin and leaves the skin feeling tacky. I am really disappointed with this product as it was the one cream that actually worked for my dry skin, but now I will have to find something different. I also don't like the new packaging. Really disappointed Vichy, please bring back the old formula, PLEASE
