Growing up my mom was my beauty inspiration. She wasn’t always glamorous but was well dressed and always took impeccable care of her skin. What I took away from my childhood regarding beauty is that your skin is the foundation to eternal youth. I recall my mother would rub coconut oil on her skin and use the dead sea masks every morning and night. These beauty methods are very traditional and fall in line with the middle eastern cultural . As my mother matured into her 40’s she started to incorporate anti-aging skincare into her routine and of course like mother like daughter she fell in love with Vichy products and has used their skincare since she was in her 40’s! Now at 65 she is still a Vichy lover and loves that I followed in her footsteps and made Vichy my go-to skincare brand.
When Vichy sent me the Neovadiol Rose Platinum Luxury Moisturizer for mature skin, I knew my mom would be the perfect candidate to test the product out and help me with this review.
The Neovadiol Rose Platinum Luxury Moisturizer is formulated with beeswax + Vichy Thermal water + Calcium to replenish and restore skins natural glow. It’s best for mature skin and results are visible in as little as 3.5 weeks.
I decided to write this article as a Q&A over a warm cup of chai tea with my momma! These are her exact words and English is not her first language. I chose to not alter any of her wording or grammar because I think it’s very authentic and I wanted her to express herself in the way she knows how.
Maha: Hi Momma! Thank you for having me over ( lol because I am over all the time!)
Momma Amira: OK thank you Maha for coming (she’s so nervous. She never calls me by my name !)
Maha: Momma, how long have you been testing the product?
Momma Amira: 3 .5 weeks, morning and night like you say to do.
Maha: What change did you want to see in your skin while using the Neovadiol Rose Platinum Luxury Moisturizer?
Momma Amira: I wanted so see the dry skin go away. I wanted to have more glowy skin…like you Momma
( she’s referring to me. Middle Eastern parents call their kids Momma or Baba.It’s a discussion for another post 🙂 )
Maha: Ah Thank you! Anything else?
Momma Amira: Yes. I wanted to see less the wrinkles around my mouth and forehead.
Maha: Has the Neovadiol helped you to achieve hydrated and glowing skin?
Momma Amira: Yes! I see the difference after I put it on my face right away.
Maha: How about the wrinkles around your mouth and forehead?
Momma Amira: I think they are less…what you say? ( she points to her forehead so I examine it up close).
Maha: Definitely they are less visible. That deep one you had in the middle doesn’t look that deep anymore. The wrinkles could be less visible because your skin was dehydrated before, so with added hydration to your skin they are looking less and less. I’m so happy for you momma, I know the dryness was a huge concern of yours.
Momma Amira: Of course every woman in her 60’s wants glowy skin and more water in her skin so it looks smooth, younger and not dry.
Maha: I think every woman in her 30’s wants to achieve the same as a women in her 60’s! Hydrated and subtle skin. No ones wants to look older than they are.
Momma Amira: But you look young Momma, you look almost still in high school (of course, I blush and give her a big hug and kiss. She’s the sweetest!)
Maha: Well you taught me early on to take care of my skin so I have a skincare routine that I religiously follow. I switch things up every 3 months to keep my skin guessing and working on repairing itself with the help, of course, of well formulated products!
Maha: How did you find the texture of the moisturizer?
Momma Amira: Oh very much I liked it. It was very soft and silky when I apply it to my skin. I wash my face first and then apply the moisture as soon as I finish drying it.
Maha: Did it have a fragrance to it? I know you don’t like products that have too much of a fragrance.
Momma Amira: No, it wasn’t too bad. A little bit of a rose fragrance but it didn’t bother me. It was nice!
Maha: Overall momma what did you think about the product?
Momma Amira: I liked it very much and I want to continue using it for a long long time or until Vichy has another product that works better than this one. I will switch!
Maha: So overall are you satisfied with your results?
Momma Amira: Yes, I am so happy with it all! My skin has a glow and when I apply my foundation in the morning it looks very good with the moisturizer because the foundation applies smooth and looks bright not dull like before. Really, it’s a good product and I will ask for it again on my birthday! Thank you Vichy for giving my Mahooha ( that’s her nickname for me) the product to try it! It is so good for woman like me, so good!
So that’s a wrap on my mothers first product review! I hope you enjoyed it . Have you tried or gifted the Neovadiol Rose Platinum Luxury Moisturizer to someone? If so I would love to hear your comments on it!
