I have used other Vichy Laboratoires products in the last few months, namely the LiftActiv Retinol HA Night Total Wrinkle Plumping Care and the LiftActiv Day HA with SPF 18, so I was excited to be able to test another Vichy LiftActiv product, especially a lifting cream. As is typical with me, as soon as I see a product I like, I go straight to the brand’s site and check out the ingredients, reviews from other users and claims from the company. I consider myself to be a total beauty junkie and am always looking for the latest and greatest new lifting product. If it says firming, lifting, remodeling or tightening on the label, I will usually try it, as long as it’s within my budget. My bathroom cabinet is a testament to this! There have been many products on the market I have tried only to be disappointed.

When I received my sample of the Vichy LiftActiv Night Cream ($49), I used it for about three weeks and sadly did not notice any lifting nor firming in my facial features. I mainly concentrated on my jawline and “marionette” lines, two of my biggest problem areas. I did not expect to look like I had a facelift as that would be unrealistic for a cream, lotion or serum to do, in my opinion. However, when I looked in the mirror, I did not see any firming effect or even a tightening of my skin, at all. I guess I am still on my quest to find the perfect firming product, if such a product exists. Unfortunately, I would not be able to recommend this to my friends even though I wanted it to work. The smooth texture and the pleasant smell of the cream made it a joy to apply each day, but this would not be enough for a lifting product to do.
