Vichy Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam Review
It’s been a recent change that I have inculcated in my skincare routine. I have stopped using my regular body soap/wash on my face and use a face wash instead. Yes some of you might find it amusing, but yes I too am not sure why didn’t I do it before. Our face needs that extra bit of attention than our regular body and a good face wash helps not only in cleaning the face but also adds an extra glow. I have used quite a few regular face washes by Ponds, Neutrogena and so on but till date I have only reviewed the VLCC Anti pollution face wash gel. A recent stay at my friends place made me try out the Vichy Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam and the same evening during our shopping trip, I picked this up. So here are my views on the Vichy Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam.
Product Claims: Ideal White range employs metabolic whitening with powerful active ingredients that work in harmony with each other to give Asian women the three dimensional fairness that they strive for – flawless, luminous and radiant skin.

My Take on the Product: Vichy Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam comes in a pearly white squeeze in tube just like other regular face washes. The flip cap bottle has a real tiny nozzle which dispenses a very small quantity on pressure but I am happy with it as you really need just a pea sized drop to cover and lather your entire face. The Vichy Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam has a lovely mild floral smell which I absolutely love. It fades away in a few minutes after wash and I wish it stayed a tad bit longer. Just a pea sized drop cover the entire face and I was surprised to see that it even foams up nicely leaving the skin clean and clear.
Moving on to the effectiveness, I never really had the same experience with any face wash before. I have really dry skin, but this face was just does not dry out my skin. Infact inspite of the fact that it cleans well, it kept my maintained the balance of my skin. I real don’t fall in the whitening claims of any products but this face was has helped me a bit with my skin pigmentation and dark spots to a certain extent. I have slightly dark forehead a recently got 2-3 dark spots on my cheeks which I feel are slowly fading out with regular usage. It’s been just a month’s use and I can already notice the difference.
My friend who has been loyal to this brand swears by using the Vichy Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam and the Vichy day cream/ serum with SPF. She claims the combination of both has worked really well for her and she does not replace this skincare routine with anything else. Vichy as a brand is quite popular for its effective skincare products, the only concern would be its price tag 😛

Misses – Vichy Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam
Overall Verdict: Apart from the price factor, I really can’t think of any con in this product. Even at a discounted price of Rs 1350, I find it to be a bit pricey for a face wash. The Vichy Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam works really well on all skin types and I am sure with the day cream or serum, the effects would be better and more prominent.
