Vichy Normaderm Purifying Pore Tightening Toner (Rs 990 for 200 ml) available at Healthkart3 in 1 Unclogging Purifying Toner with Salicylic Acid, Totarol, a new purifying ingredient, and Eperuline to help regulate inflammations. Eliminates impurities and visibly reduces the appearance of pores for a more even skin surface and a matte effect.
I never realized the importance of a good toner until now. I started using Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 two months back and saw how much dirt and grim it sucks out of pores even after cleansing my face. However that toner didn’t do much for my acne issue and my skin still felt congested with occasional white heads on my chin and cheeks.
I decided to switch to one of my favorite brands Vichy. Vichy Normaderm range is for troubled skin, for acne breakout prone oily skin. I have a rare combination Dry Acne Prone skin !! So I am just using the Toner and nothing else at this moment.
Vichy Normaderm Purifying Pore Tightening Toner comes in a huge green plastic bottle and color of the toner is also green. It has a mild scent which isn’t bothersome.
I have been using this Astringent Toner for over 3 weeks now and this is what I have experienced -
I use Vichy Normaderm Purifying Pore Tightening Toner every night after cleansing my face. I pour some toner on a cotton round and gently sweep it across my face concentrating on target/ problem areas i.e. my jawline and cheeks. It doesn’t make my skin dry or uncomfortable. I let the product work for 5 minutes and then follow up with rest of the skincare routine i.e. serum & night cream.
The difference was visible in just 1 week. My skin started to looks fresh and clean. Congestion/ white heads disappeared and acne on jawline was gone to a great extent. I wouldn’t say that my acne is completely gone but yes 70% of it has disappeared. I have dry skin so I limit the use to one time only, however if you have combination or oily skin, I would advice using Vichy Normaderm Purifying Pore Tightening Toner twice a day.
I don’t have open/ large pores so can’t really comment on its effectiveness on pure-tightening claims!
This is the best toner I have used so far, it has salicylic acid that treats acne. It works like magic and believe me this 200 ml bottle is going to stay with you for good 2 months (for me it will be 2.5-3 months).
I will highly recommend Vichy Normaderm Purifying Pore Tightening Toner to those with troubled skin. Adding a toner to your skin care regime that targets the skin concern is really good. If you have dry skin (with no acne) you can add a toner that works for dry skin, similarly for acne prone skin this one would be the best choice available out there. I will definitely repurchase the same !!
