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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dupe for Clarins hydraquench Everything I wanted clariins hydra quench moisturiser to be without the greasy feeling and for half the price. Totally turned around the dry dehydrated skin on my forehead, dry patches disappeared and fine lines reduced. Better than any anti wrinkle cream I've tried. Hydration last all throughout day, great base for foundations. Doesn't worsen my oily acne prone areas either. Skin feels plumped and hydrated without the greasy feeling a lot of other hydrating moisturisers give. Worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The one product I need in my routine I work from home, there are days I don’t see real people so I naturally don’t need to put on makeup. So hilariously the ONLY product that is a constant in my life must be my evening moisturizer . Which one I use changes with the seasons ... my winter moisturizer is the heaviest because it’s so cold and dry, my summer moisturizer needs to be oil free and light .... my fall and spring’s hard to find one but Vichy manages to get it right! It’s just enough to feel barely there while making my skin feel so soft and supple. Highly recommend! I got this product for free to test but my opinions are my own. #freesample

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New formula is terrible I have been using this cream for 3 years, it was light and heavy enough to deal with dry skin. It would immediately brighten my skin on application. This new formula is awful, sticky heavy consistency it stays on the top of the skin and makes my skin dull. It’s such a shame I will have to change my products now. PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THE NIGHT CREAM!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE This cream is amazing. I've used the Normaderm line for several years, but have found lately that a few patches around my face have been dry, and the normaderm moisturizer just isn't cutting it. Tried a few different brands before coming back to Vichy and trying this - I wouldn't say my skin is very dry, but the texture of this is so luxurious and soothing. All redness, unevenness and blotchiness is gone. My face feels hydrated, looks plump and glowy. I use day and night, a little goes a long way, and appreciative that it's unscented. Has helped cut down on the amount of makeup I felt I needed to use as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) The pro : it is very hydrating and does as advertised. It is rich but not uncomfortably thick on the skin. I do actually love the texture of the product and it is quite ‘luxe’ feeling The not so good : I don’t like the jar packaging. It causes the entire product to be exposed to air on a regular basis and that can break down good ingredients that are within the formula. I also don’t like the fact that it has a perfumy scent. It also did cause my to break out, I typically have dry acne prone skin and therefor I need hydrating products that don’t block my pores and this product sadly did

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New Formula Terrible I have been using this moisturiser for 4 years. It hydrated my dry/oily/sensitive skin perfectly. I have always suggested to friends as an amazing hydrating moisturiser. I’m so disappointed with the new formula. The silky cream that glides on has been replaced with a mushy soap like consistency that has to be roughly rubbed in. Instead of feeling glowy and fresh after my skin feels like it’s got an oily film on top. Loved the original, now a waste of money. Will now have to find an alternative.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back the old version please!! I have been using the old version of Aqualia Thermal Rich for absolutely years. It was wonderful, I loved using it and always recommended it to friends. But this NEW version is horrible! It sits on the skin and feels sticky and tacky - yeuch! Please bring back the original was the perfect moisturiser for dry skin. I am so disappointed now, will have to start looking for a replacement :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE best! I got the chance to try this product and I'm so happy to have been choosen for this one: it was a marvelous surprise for me. It's smooth, delicate, easy to apply. A nice delicate perfume and fast effects. I use it before going to bed and I can see the results when waking it: I look more hydrate and refreshed. My skin is more even, more radiant, more everything in fact. I feel that this product is a must in winter season, with a very dry skin, all hydration is more thant needed. I loved everything in this product, I didn't find anything bad in it. Just good effects, features and mostly: fast results that last! Recommend it at 110%!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) I have already used the rich cream before, but in the old packaging. Loved it then, still love it now. It's a little heavier than I like for day use, so I prefer to apply it at night and let it work its magic and wake up to hydrated skin. My sensitive skin has had no issues. One note to make is the scent. It's a little strong for my liking, which I also think adds to my wanting to use it at night while I sleep. It's a bit too much for me during the day. I did receive this product complimentary from Influenster for testing and reviewing purposes. Pictures and thoughts are my own.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I used this cream for 20 years and considered it the best cream ever. I am not sure what they done to it but it makes my skin feel horrible! Why change a perfect formula?? Very upsetting- will have to search for a new product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Serious hydration! I have been using the Aqualia Thermal cream for the last couple weeks, every evening after the Aqualia Thermal serum. These both have the same nice light floral scent. This has a nice dense cream consistency, and a little goes a long way...just a small amount covers the whole face. I prefer to use at night to let it absorb fully since it is a rich cream, and it was a bit too much under my daytime makeup. Gives my skin an amazing moisture boost, I didn't realize how dry my cheeks were until after I started using it...face looked plumped, hydrated and even reduced the appearance of fine smile lines by my mouth!! So happy to receive this product to try #freeproduct #trywithtopbox #freesample

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I've been using this for about 6 weeks now. The packaging is impressive and the mirrored lid a great plus. The cream smells quite strong for an aqua based product but has a lovely fragrance. It is a smooth almost fell like feel and glides onto your skin. It doesn't absorb quickly so I suggest applying it, leaving it for a while and then continue with your regime. My skin does look plumper and glowing. not sure though if it is worth the price tag. I like the novelty of the packaging so I might stick with this for a while. There are other product that compare to this that is a little cheaper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The consistency is amazing I got this as a #frersample from Topbox . #freeproduct #trywithtopbox I am in love with this product. I have dry skin so it’s really hard for me to love a product trust when I say this it’s the best thirst quench cream for my dry skin I have used so far my skin absorbes it so fast like it exactly needed this type of hydration. I am using this product in my morning routine before makeup and in my night time skincare routine following with the serum and I am seeing absolutely great results in my skin texture. Definitely recommend this for a normal to dry skin types. I’m sure I’m going to keep this product in my skincare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) This really is a rich cream. It's probably best suited for super dry skin in the winter. I would not use this in the summer because it's like one of the thickest creams I have every used. It's thicker than the Charlotte Tilbury magic cream, but Vichy actually hydrates and works. I guess with a formula so thick it has to be in a jar or the pump would get clogged. The jar is glass and is nice and heavy. Feels like a lux product for a much lower price point. The smell is very subtle and is more like a skincare scent--fresh. You really have to work it into the skin to get it to absorb unless your skin is beyond dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love for night use! I received this from Glamsense in return for my honest review. As much as I love the Light version for the day, this one shines at night for me. Some days I need the extra moisture of this in the morning, but the Light is usually enough. But I love putting this on at night and letting it work it's magic while I sleep. It makes my skin feel so hydrated and plump, a major plus in the colder months in Canada!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) I've been using this on a daily basis for a few weeks, and so far it's been a great match with my dry and sensitive skin. I do wish it was unscented, but the scent doesn't bother me at all. The packaging comes in a glass container with a white lid that holds the product perfectly. The cream itself is on the thicker side. Once you apply it on your skin it glides perfectly and doesn't leave a residue of any kind. My skin was able to grasp onto the consistency of the cream and feel moisturized after. I received this product courtesy of Influenster for review purposes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for nighttime This moisturizer was the perfect step in my nighttime routine. I started out using this in the morning but felt it was a little too thick. That’s okay with me because I prefer having a different moisturizer for day and night and a richer consistency is best at night because that’s when our skin is repairing itself. I’ve tried the lighter version of this and would suggest that for daytime if you are normal or combo skin like me. If you are drier you could probably get away with using this in the daytime too. I received this product for free from Topbox for review #freeproduct

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this I was selected to try this product for #Free for giving my honest opinion and feedback. So i really enjoy using this product it is a rehydrating cream which I really needed my skin is so dry this helps so much it also nourishes formup to 48 hours a good things so I have been following what the box recommends and it says put on in the morning and in the evening it even recommends to use it after you use aquaria thermal rehydrating serum or alone. It has been allergen tested so that’s a plus to. So I have been using it every day that I have had it and I really like how it leaves my skin feeling hydrated and nourished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) I received this product complimentary of Influenster for reviewing purposes. This product is rich, creamy and super hydrating. I have combo-oily skin that is prone to dryness on my cheeks and this definitely plumps up my skin when I need it. The only gripe I have about it is it is strongly scented; so those of you who do not like fragrant skincare may not enjoy this. Otherwise, if you're looking for a luxurious cream to add to your routine, definitely give this a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My whole family loves this stuff [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This has been my go to moisturizer for a couple of years. Now my husband and teenage son have started to use it too. It is great for dry skin and it absorbs quickly. New England winters can be brutal on my face, and this stuff is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) I really took my time testing this product out because I wanted to write and honest review. I really love this moisturizer!! I have very dry skin that is really sensitive and breaks out a lot if I put any product on it. For this reason, I rarely use any skin care but this Vichy cream really impressed me. It has become a staple in my night time routine. I apply it before I go to bed and wake up with fresh hydrated skin. I highly recommend this moisturizer if you have sensitive dry skin like me, it’s definitely worth the money and I will buy again! Thank you to Influenster and Vichy for sending me this complimentary cream.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The new formula is not good Please bring back the old vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Creme as the new formula sucks and does not penetrate into the skin. It's also very hard to layer under your foundation and does not help with dry skin concerns at all. Please bring back the old formula.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very dissapointed Very disappointed with the new product, cream substance changed for worse. Skin felt tight, dry amd blotchy .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed This is not an improved formula. It is greasy and yet leaves my skin tight and thirsty. The old formula was perfect and the only face cream I could find to suit my skin. Now I will have to search for something else, so so disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) I am recommending to use this cream if you have a dry dryyy skin. I always have a struggle with my dry skin. I used 2 different moisturizers + sleeping mask + some mist for dry skin everyday morning and before my bedtime. If not I feel very uncomfortable, sometimes it’s very difficult to sleep. I started using this moisturizing cream a few weeks before and I absolutely loved it! This cream does all the same job/ even better of my old skin cares. Of course, I use a sleeping mask SOMETIMES but not everyday! It's helping me a lot: save my time and save my money too! It’s always better to buy one product to buy 3-4for products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from (This review was collected as part of a promotion.) when i got the email from influenster saying i was being sent this moisturizer for free, i was STOKED!! i love water based/gel moisturizers so much, they always work amazingly with my skin. i have dry/combo skin. the texture of this surprised me, as water based moisturizers are usually very thin. this one has a thicker consistency, but its still very light feeling on the skin. over the past week that ive been using this, morning and night, my skin has been looking super glowy and hydrated. if you are in the market for a super hydrating moisturizer, this is the one for you. splurging on your skincare is a must in my opinion!!
Date published: 2018-06-27
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same as the original!!! I am so disappointed and quite frankly devastated that Vichy changed this product. The original went on so smooth, hydrated my skin so nicely, gave a nice glow, and smoothed out the wrinkles. This new version is thick and doesn't penetrate like the original. Still have one travel bottle of the original, once finished, t's off to looking for another brand of moisturizer. Please Vichy, make the original one again.
