Have any of you experienced that while your skin radiates with a healthy glow in the morning, by lunchtime it’s a different story? You look tired and wrinkles (if you have any) are more noticeable – resulting in having to reapply blush and concealer in an effort to banish the lacklustre look.

It has been proven that signs of aging become more distinct over the course of the day – It’s not just the years that give away a woman’s age, it’s each passing day.

In an exclusive clinical study, Vichy identified key markers that give skin its “tired look” by the end of the day, namely dulled complexion, deepening wrinkles and sagging features. With this in mind, Vichy formulated the Liftactiv supreme range and I was lucky enough to receive some product try out.

I’ve been using the products for just over a month, and can definitely recommend the range. My favourite being the Liftactiv serum 10 supreme!

Liftactiv serum 10 supreme


 The Lifltactiv serum 10 covers the 10 signs of agingfirmness, tonicity, volume, fatigue, dehydration, uneven complexion, sagging, dullness, fine lines and deep wrinkles. And receives a 10/10 from me!

10 signs of aging

10% Rhamnose, a natural sugar clinically-proven to act on skin rejuvenation and to fight the signs of aging is combined with fragmented hyaluronic acid, resulting in 2x more Rhamnose being absorbed into the skin’s surface layers for an immediate plumping and hydrating effect. Pores are also visibly reduced and the serum leaves one’s skin feeling lifted.

In just 10 minutes after applying the serum, I could see the effect as my skin looked illuminated and plumped. After one month of using the serum, my skin feels and looks noticeably firmer and lifted. The results even convinced my husband to start using the product!

For best results, the full range should be used. The Liftactiv day cream is a new generation of anti-aging day care specifically created to counteract daily aging, resulting in a more youthful-looking appearance, all day.

Instant 3d optical correctors simultaneously mattify, blur, and illuminates the skin. Exclusive dayproof technology combines Caffeine + Adenosine for younger-looking features all day and Rhamnose combined with the powerful antioxidant Neohesperidine, helps reduce the look of wrinkles over time.

The day cream is a light yet comfortable cream that melts immediately into the skin and provides a fresh, comfortable feeling all day. What I like about this day cream is that it is non-sticky and ideal for layering under sunscreen or makeup, without making your skin look greasy.

Liftactiv night supreme


If you are like me, a night cream is a MUST in your beauty cupboard. And as far as night creams go, the Liftactiv night supreme is definitely one I would use as part of my daily routine. This night cream, featuring Rhamnose, helps combat the signs of skin aging by visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles & helping to boost skin’s firmness overnight.

The thick, creamy texture melts immediately into the skin, leaving a soft, smooth finish.

Even though we all want to believe that there is a quick fix to aging, there is not. In addition to using the right products, make sure your diet is varied and well balanced by eating plenty of vegetables, fruit and proteins that will give your body the nourishment it needs. Finally, regular exercise is very important. Just a few minutes each day will go a long way!

There is no better time than the present to take action! So take control of your signs of aging as they appear now, tonight and for the years to come!
