here with a finished product for you. I recently(ish) finished Vichy's Normaderm anti-age resurfacing care moisturizer. I used this as my day cream during the winter months (early Oct-end of March... welcome to Canada). I believe I paid $37 for it at Shoppers.
I actually really liked this as a day cream. It was mattifying and wore really nicely under makeup. Like, really nicely. I also liked that this contained glyolic acid. I'm not a huge fan of physical exfoliants. I have a jar of burt's bees exfoliant languishing unloved in my shower. Having the glycolic in my day cream was more realistic for me. I did notice that my skin looked quite luminous. This winter has been my best "skin" winter yet.
That said, I won't be using in the summer since I'm committed to a daily SPF. To get my chemical exfoliant fix I'm currently using NeoStrata's toner in level 2 which contains 8% glycolic acid. Will let you know what I think once it's all used up.
