In the moment, yes, there’s a hint of hydration and cells plumping up and saying “Mmmm.” But that’s about it. Add moisturizer and 10 minutes later there’s no noticeable difference. I know; a couple mornings and evenings in a row, I used this before moisturizing one side of my face — forehead to chin and down to the tan line on my neck — and went without it on the other half.
That approach also enables me to say that neither did it make my sometimes fussy skin react to it negatively. And the light fragrance was pleasant, lingering briefly before disappearing. I do live in a pretty humid climate, so sun and wind or forgetting to drink enough water are the usual reasons my face sometimes feels dry. Those who live in drier climates or who have to make it through cold winters and hot summers might get more benefit from this than I did.
This Vichy Aqualia Thermal Hydrating Refreshing Water made it difficult to apply my favorite tinted moisturizer. It was blotchy and not blendable. It did not slide across my face which is why I like that tinted SPF moisturizer so much.
But I persisted. Over time, flakes and redness around my mouth started to appear. It could be a reaction to the active ingredients, which are water, glycerin, and castor oil. Or any number of color dyes . Or the version of polyethylene glycol which is derived from bees wax. (I also have reactions to most bee products from a guy whose name begins with "B".) Or the copper sulfate, which in large enough quantity dissolves roots from plumbing pipes. Or the chelation agent disodium EDTA, which is probably beibg used as a preservative. Or the "parfum", which could be anything. Or the myrtrimonium bromide, which is an ammonium salt.
So I cannot say what my skin reacted to, but react it did. I had to discontinue the product and get a prescription from my dermatologist for the redness which also tightened my skin painfully.
Yes, it sounds like plain old innocuous water. And it was indeed tested on "asian (sic) sensitive skin". But not on mine anymore. (I am neither asian nor Asian.)
But I have admittedly wonky skin. If you have wonky skin, I would not recommend this. If you have admirably normal, normal dry, or otherwise non-sensitive skin, then I would say yes, give this product a try. But know that you are getting a lot more than just water.
