EVENT: Vichy's Spa Water Workshop

At Vichy, we believe in that skin health is the safest, most effective, and most advanced path for achieving true, more visible and sustained beauty.

Back in August, Pearlin invited me to Vichy's Spa Water Workshop. (:

For this workshop, the spotlights were on the Thermal Spa Water and the Aqualia Thermal range.

Vichy Thermal Spa Water originates from a spring in Vichy, which has one of the richest waters in rare minerals in France. The water's 'exceptional richness in 15 minerals' comes from the its journey though magmatic rocks. These minerals

Soothes (Anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant.)
The water prevents and soothes skin irritations caused by external aggressors such as pollution, climate changes and stress. It relives skin from discomfort, puffiness, redness and itching.

Fortifies (Strengthens and protects skin tissues against ageing.)
The water protects skin against ageing and pollution by reinforcing the skin's anti-oxidant protection and barrier, after exposure to UV rays.

Regenerates (Stimulates cell renewal.)
The water increases skin cells' metabolism and promotes cells' renewal. Skin becomes more radiant, balanced and comfortable.

For the Aqualia Thermal range, it contains Vichy Thermal Spa Water, Aquabioryl and Hyaluronic acid.

Aquabioryl is a new generation of ultra-hydrating ingredient that amplifies comfort and soothing sensations, giving softness and silkiness to the skin, by intensively hydrating 100% of the epidermis.

Hyaluronic Acid, which is no stranger to most of us, penetrates into the skin and locks in water molecules for 24 hours. The protective film created on the skin's surface protects it from external aggressions and acts as a barrier against water loss.

I had no idea that Vichy has lip balms! They are really pricey though. :\ Anyway, I have started using the Aqualia Thermal Mask. The recent burning of midnight oil has left some areas of my face parched like the desert. :\ But this, along with my new skincare regime, has helped to quench my skin's thirst. (: Reviews will be up later. (:

At the event, we were treated to a scrumptious dinner from Freshly Baked by Le Bijoux. I had Egg Mayonnaise (Which was sooo fresh! And the mayonnaise was just the right amount. You know how sometimes the mayo's too much and the whole bread turns soggy and yucky. And then, there are times when the mayo's non-existent and the meal gets so dry. This was just right!) and salad (Yay! Fresh, leafy veggies! :D I have issues with cheese though... :\).

And guess what?!? The Vichy Spa Water can make an awesome mask as well! All you have to do is drench a facial sheet with it and voilà!!! I didn't try it at the event but I have been spraying oh-so-luxurious spa water on my face after baths (I have been doing so for a very long time now, actually.)!

Last but not least, these are the pretties whom I attended the event with! (: (I was looking at Himeko's camera. Ugh... Spoilt the photo!) I love how easily beauty bloggers click the moment we go "Hey! Do you know about ___(insert beauty product)___?". :D

Thanks for Pearlin and Vichy for the invitation and as always, thank YOU for reading! Have a fab Sunday! (:
