Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep Review
Taking better care of my health and body is my number one New Year’s resolution so when I was given the opportunity to try Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep Recovery Night Gel-Balm on a complimentary basis, I quickly agreed. () I am always interested in trying new skincare products to determine which ones work best on my skin.
A lot of companies make false claims about their skincare products, promising glowing results. It’s hard to sift through marketing clichés to determine if a product will really work. I’m at the age where I want my skin to look rested and refreshed and that doesn’t always happen on its own.
Vichy Idéalia Skin Sleep is promoted as being good for dull skin or fine lines. Vichy states that using Idéalia Skin Sleep mimics the repair activity that happens to skin during the deep sleep period. They claim that skin will look “smoother and more luminous” after one week’s use of the product.
Active Ingredients in Idéalia Skin Sleep
Idéalia’s active ingredients stimulate the skin’s deep sleep mechanisms to recreate their reparative effects: Glycyrrhizic acid is anti-inflammatory, Hyaluronic acid is responsible for plumping and hydrating skin while caffeine stimulates circulation. Jasmine and green tea have been added for their calming benefits. Idéalia Skin Sleep is hypoallergenic and contains no parabens and is suitable for all skin types.
The directions indicate to apply a thick layer to the face and neck one to three times per week. You are then supposed to let the gel penetrate the skin for 10 to 15 minutes, then massage any excess gel into the skin. Place your thumbs on the temples and the ring fingers in-between the eyebrows and apply a relaxing pressure. The last step is key to creating a relaxed state before going to bed.
I applied a layer of Idéalia Skin Sleep to my face before going to bed. First, I will say that I love the texture and smell of the product. The gel is cooling to the skin and the fragrance is pleasing. There wasn’t a lot of excess gel to massage into my skin because my skin tends to be dehydrated, but I did gently massage the remaining gel into my skin. I immediately noticed how smooth my skin felt, but of course, the real test was whether my skin would feel as smooth in the morning.
Results of Using Idéalia Skin Sleep
I woke up the next morning and, unlike The Weeknd, I could feel my face…and it was silky and supple. I looked in the mirror and I noticed that my cheek area was definitely plumped up. It’s hard to believe that a product could produce results so quickly, but Idéalia Skin Sleep did and my skin continued to feel soft throughout the day. I have continued to use the product for several days with the same excellent results. I recommend using Idéalia Skin Sleep because it does what it promises.

As a teenager I had a routine of cleansing, toning and moisturizing. Then I had kids and the routine was washing and mayonnaising my face. Now I am old and washing is all I do….and it shows!
Now that it’s winter, I try to use a cleanser that is appropriate for this time of year. When I was younger, I didn’t do that and I could feel it but didn’t think there was something different out there. When you’re young, you don’t think your skin is ‘dry’. I thought my skin felt clean after washing.
my routine is a cleanser and moisturizer morning and at night before i go to bed
I don’t have a routine, but I should as the winter air is so very dry dry dry here on the Prairies!!
I don’t, but I should!
Yes I do…..Both morning and before bed I use Vichy’s One-Step Cleanser and a day/night moisturiser. I usually do not buy the moisturiser from Vichy as they are a little to expensive for me. I do love Vichy and is my favourite brand to buy.

i absolutely love vichy and the idealia smells like heaven!!
Cleanse and moisturise morning and evening
I always moisturise morning and night, but am not yet loyal to a particular brand. I have sensitive skin so I’ve been experimenting with heavier night creams. Vichy has a good rep for sensitive skin, so I’d be interested to try this.
I like to cleanse, moisturize daily and always wear sunscreen with SPF.
I also love experimenting with luxurious creams that can hydrate my aging skin.
It would be lovely to try the Vichy facial cream.Tanks for the chance. 🙂
Yes, right now I use Neutrogena products, always happy to try new regimes!
I cleanse my skin than moisturize
Skincare is so important! A gentle cleanser, toner, serum and moisturizer are absolute musts. Healthy glowing skin can take some effort, but it is so worth it!
