In my teens I had pretty mild acne but as an adult, I find that I seem to battle breakouts more rather than less. And since my skin doesn’t recover as quickly as it did when I was a teenager, I sometimes end up with age spots and acne scars that take months, if not years, to fade. So when I received a package containing two of the products from the newest additions to the Vichy ProEVEN line, I was thrilled. I’m a bit of a beauty product junkie so I’m always excited to try a new item. But this line was especially exciting to me as it was designed specifically to reduce the appearance of dark spots and even skin tone.
I received the ProEVEN Brightening Cleansing Foam and the ProEVEN Daily Eye Corrector to review and I started using both products immediately. The Brightening Cleaning Foam was something that I was a little hesitant about, as some cleaners are too rich for my skin causing breakouts and others are too abrasive leaving my skin tight and dry. The Brightening Cleansing Foam uses LHA to gently remove dead skin cells revealing younger and more even skin. And the Vitamin C in the cleanser leaves skin looking immediately brighter too!
I found that the cleanser left my skin feeling slightly tight as if it was a cleanser and a toner in one. But I was amazed by how gentle it was on my face. My skin felt better and was less prone to breakouts after only a few days of use and after a few weeks, I had a noticeable difference in the evenness of my skin tone.
I was even more excited about using the ProEVEN Daily Eye Corrector, partly because running my blog leads to a lot of late nights and partly because I have a small red acne scar under one of my eyes that I am always trying to lighten. I had high hopes that the product would help lighten not just the dark circles under my eyes but the scar as well. [Read more…]
