Vichy Calming Solution (1) Vichy Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Calming Cleansing Solution Review

Guest Review By Priya R

Product Description: Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Calming Cleansing Solution with Micelle Technology to effectively remove make-up and impurities, yet ultra-gentle on the skin. Ideal for all types of skin, even the most sensitive. A refreshing cleansing water enriched with soothing Rose Phytopheno to clean the face, remove eye/lip make-up and soothe the skin in one simple step. No rinsing required.

Results: Face, eyes and lips are perfectly cleansed in one simple step. Even the most sensitive skin feels soothed. Ultra-effective: cleanses and removes makeup without rubbing.

My Views:

Vichy is one brand whose products seem to not agree with my skin! It all started with their Face Wash & since then whatever I tried from their range, my skin always breaks out, except for this  Vichy Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Calming Cleansing Solution. I had no intentions of buying this solution in the first place, but I got 3 sample bottles to try with my previous purchase & after using it for a while I ended up buying the full-sized product.

Oily makeup removers do not work for my skin, mainly because they end up clogging my pores & I don’t like the sticky feeling they leave on my skin. I was on the lookout for a water based makeup remover & Vichy Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Calming Cleansing Solution came to my rescue. It is hydrating, and  does not rip  the moisture off my skin  plus it ensures it steeps clear of the oiliness without being harsh on the skin.

It does not cause any kind of redness or irritation & has not broken out on me. It claims you do not need to cleanse your face after removing the makeup with this solution but the feeling of a light watery film on my skin, makes me atleast rinse my skin if not use a face wash. It is perfect for those times when at the end of tiring days you don’t feel like using a seperate makeup remover and cleanser.

As far as its effectiveness in removing makeup is concerned, it is not 100% true to its claims. It easily wipes off base makeup, eyeshadows, lipsticks, in short anything that is not water-proof or smudge-proof.  For water proof items, it requires a few more swipes. Despite its shortcoming, it works for me & I would definitely purchase it again, I do not mind going in with the makeup remover a few times as far as it is not oil-based. It is perfect for those who have sensitive skin.

Pros:

  1. Oil-free makeup remover
  2. Does not need rinsing afterward
  3. Does not clog pores
  4. Does not require toning the skin after cleansing
  5. Does not cause irritation, redness or dryness
  6. Alcohol-free, fragrance free, soap free

Cons:            

  1. Not very effective in removing water-proof makeup
  2. The hole opening churns out more solution than required

 Rating:B+

Price: Rs. 890

Recommendation: Vichy Purete Thermale 3 in 1 Calming Cleansing Solution is a decent oil-free makeup remover which works well if you have sensitive skin which is prone to breaking out easily. It is effective in cleansing out regular makeup but it needs extra effort for water-proof makeup. If you do not like oil based makeup removers that clog pores then this is for you.

Vichy products are amazing, but I would skip this one. I use oils to cleanse my face & they take care of waterproof makeup as well.

Nice review. I have not tried any Vichy products yet, I have my eyes on one of their moisturisers, I think the normaderm one.
