Vichy Aqualia Thermal Fortifying & Soothing 24Hr Hydrating Cream review

This has been my face cream of choice since july and I couldn't be any happier!
As you know I have the most sensitive(and dry!) of skin so finding the right face cream is REALLY hard.
extremely disappointed with the limited choice Boots gave me regarding face creeams for sensitive skins, I got fed up and decided to go to the chemist's. Turning to a chemist for beauty is something I would often do back home but for some reason I haven't got into that habit yet over here. And I really should because I couldn't have been advised any better!
I went in and I asked for a face cream for VERY sensitive skins, light and possibly with an spf; she focused on Vichy straight away (I had a very bad burnt hands experience a few years ago whilst trecking in the Alps and Vichy was the one to sooth and alleviate pain a bit), so I was quite happy with that.

Vichy says:

"Ingredient Innovation:
Vichy Thermal Water + Activ Hyaluronine™, patent pending, combination of hyaluronic acid and lipidure proven for lasting moisture. Micro-encapsulated and delivered in a "sprinkler-like" system for 24Hr hydration. In a comforting yet refreshing cream that melts into skin. Non-greasy. Non-sticky.

For up to 24 hours, skin is intensely hydrated with moisture, feels soothed and comfortable, visibly fortified, with increased radiance.

Dermatological Standards:
Allergy tested. Formulated for sensitive skin. Tested on sensitive skin under dermatological control. Paraben-free. Non-comedogenic.."

I say: "HELL YES!!".
My skin DOES feel hydrated all day long, it is VERY light weight and it does dry pretty quickly, you just have to be careful not to apply more than needed or it'll take ages to dry and feel greasy. A very little goes a very long way and one jar will last you for ages!
The soothing effect is VERY good I have to say after a long day outside, be it in the sun or wind exposure.
And hey, it is also paraben free!

Great product!
