If you are looking for an affordable drugstore moisturizer that is great quality then you need to try the Vichy Aqualia Thermal.
I’ll tell you why I like this moisturizer: it’s simple and leaves my skin feeling fresh and slightly dewy.
The Vichy Aqualia Thermal UV Defense Moisturizer has an SPF of 30 so I’m confident that I’m getting the proper UV protection from the sun.
I still use a sunscreen everyday which is the La Roche Posay Anthelios Fluid SPF50+
The Vichy Aqualia Thermal UV Defense Moisturizer is good for normal to dry skin. Although I have normal to oily skin, I still love this moisturizer because it gives me a thicker hydration which I love.
The ingredients in the Aqualia Thermal promote soothing for a 24 hour period. I never believe that one application of moisturizer will make your skin hydrated for 24 hours but it does ensure I am hydrated throughout the day!
The main active ingredient in this moisturizer is hyaluronic acid which acts as a humectant and locks moisture within the skin (check out my frequently asked questions about skincare to find out what a humectant really does)
I also really love the packaging because it comes in a glass stand up bottle with a pump. I have so many other moisturizers that come in tubs which I have to dip my fingers in. I much prefer this bottle because it also looks great on my skincare shelf!
On the Vichy website, you can often find this moisturizer bundled with other serums and cleansers in a gift set so you can try the whole Vichy range.
I would recommend the Vichy Aqualia Thermal UV Defense moisturizer to anybody who has normal to dry skin and wants an affordable moisturizer that provides moisture throughout the day.
The other Moisturizer I love is the Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation moisturizer but that is thinner and doesn’t have an SPF in it.
Trust me when I say that the Vichy Aqualia Thermal UV Defense is one of the best drugstore moisturizers with SPF that you can buy.
