Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light Rehydrating Cream, Analysis And Alternative

It is one of the best moisturizers chosen by the OCU, and also one of the most popular, so I was looking forward to reviewing it.

The cream provides great hydration to all skin types, but especially dry and dehydrated ones. The result is fresher and more comfortable skin, which remains hydrated for up to 48 hours, and is protected from variations in weather, stress or pollution.

Contains 97% ingredients of natural origin, including hyaluronic acid, and Mannose sugar. Let’s see in what position and proportion is hyaluronic acid, and if it has any more benefits for skin than hydration.

When you read this article, I recommend reading this other one that analyzes the Best Face Creams on the market, also the part after the analysis, in which I tell a lot of things about face creams.

So let’s go with the analysis of this Vichy cream.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light Rehydrating Cream Review

Summary analysis of Vichy Aqualia Thermal Light Rehydrating Cream

The first 6 ingredients on the list are not very promising, they do not go beyond a lubricant, an emollient, an alcohol and a conditioner, and also one of them is an irritant.

My expectations are improved with shea butter, which helps retain moisture, and also slows water loss by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface. But aside from a couple more moisturizers, and hyaluronic acid, this cream has no more juice.

Hyaluronic acid, a great asset, is in a very low position, they have not been able to take advantage of it well, like the rest of the assets. A shame

And to be a cream for dry and sensitive skin, I see that it has an alcohol, and a couple of irritating ingredients, so I do not see it highly recommended for this type of skin.

It is true that it does not have parabens, silicones or other harmful ingredients for health, something that is appreciated, but it falls a little short of benefits.


I recommend Nezeni Cosmetics Collagen cream, which I think is a much better option. Not only does it intensely hydrate, it also nourishes and smoothes the skin thanks to the hydrolyzed collagen. In addition, it has a filling effect on wrinkles and firms the fabric.

It is the option that I use now, and I cannot stop recommending it. You have the INCI analysis in the article that I recommend above in the intro.
