Initially I was very skeptical about the VI Peel Home Care Kit, just simply because it was given away for free (I’m quite certain that the price includes the kit :P) and the ingredients didn’t seem to be that impressive. However, the texture of the products on my skin was great and they were very easy to work with overall.
VI Derm Cleanser (includes ingredients)
Their transparent liquid gel cleanser foams very easily and the foam is very fine that it reminded me of my favourite all time Institut Esthederm OSMOCLEAN Pure Cleansing Gel. Basically the Esthederm one has a better scent and a more gel-like feel on the skin, whereas VI Derm Cleanser feels quite light. Although it’s a foaming cleanser, because it’s free of sulfates, it didn’t dry my skin out after washing.
VI Post Peel Towelette
The towelette though, has an awful smell. At least the smell goes away pretty quick, which was a relief XD. Although the esthetician didn’t cover my eye and neck areas, I rub the towelettes on those areas anyway as well as the rest of my face. The towelette by itself felt quite rough on skin, it’s pretty tough and thick compared to cleansing wipes on the market. I first swiped all over my face and along the jawline, then I worked on each part of my face and neck thoroughly with rubbing motion, starting with the areas I was most concerned about to the least. If you are planning to put around the eyes though, you should be very careful not to go near lashline. It can really sting your eyes temporarily. So if you have some sensitivity issues around that area, I think that it’s best to just avoid it.
VI Derm Post Peel Protectant with Hydrocortisone 1%
The regular cream texture without any fragrance. It absorbs fast and blends well without leaving any major oily residue. I’m not sure if it’s enough for dry / dehydrated skin types though. It does hydrate skin pretty well but I felt that it somehow lingered on top of my skin since the hydration doesn’t last long. Due to the reason, in the end, I had to incorporate my Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin range into post VI Peel skin care along with VI Derm Post Peel Protectant. After all, as it’s stated on the back of the tube, its main purpose is to relieve itch with a bit of hydration. In terms of that, yes, it does its job, but if your skin leans towards to sensitive skin, you might need to reapply throughout the day.
VI Derm Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF50+ (includes ingredients)
To be honest, I really love the texture along with the fact that VI Derm Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF50+ is a physical sunblock. It’s an emulsion type that soaks into skin quite fast like a physical sunblock. The most important thing to note, it doesn’t dry out skin and leaves no white cast, and none of that typical sunblock smell either! Yaaaaay! It also gives a nice subtle glow and you can even use it under your foundation since it just creates a perfect canvas. If you look for something mattifying or hydrating, though, VI Derm Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF50+ isn’t right for you. You will need to moisturise first before using it unless you have oily skin that can get away with it :).
