Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti Imperfection Hydrating Care Review

This is a review of Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti Imperfection Hydrating Care for acne prone skin.

The price of Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti Imperfection Hydrating Care is Rs. 590 for 30 ml. It is available at Health & Glow stores and online at

Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti Imperfection Hydrating Care Reviewingredients:  water, glycerin, alcohol denat., dimethicone, phenyl trimethicone, methylsilanol / silicate crosspolymer, silica, isopropyl lauroyl sarcosinate, C 13-14 isoparaffin, blue 1, titanium dioxide, zinc PCA, glycolic acid, licorice root extract, salicylic acid, sodium hydroxide, sodium polyacrylate, poloxamer 338, nylon-12, disodium EDTA, capryloyl salicylic acid, tetrasodium EDTA, laureth-7, eperua falcata bark extract, dextrin, acrylates / C 10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, polyacrylamide, perfum.

The 3 active ingredients of Tri-Activ formula are:

Lipo-Hydroxy Acid (LHA) 0.14%

Salicylic Acid 0.5%

Glycolic Acid 0.175%

Even AHAGlow face wash has a greater percentage of glycolic acid than this (1%). And if you add in Clean & Clear Skin Balancing Moisturizer, you’ve made up for the 0.5% salicylic acid as well. That leaves the LHA component.

LHA is a derivative of salicylic acid. A study showed that LHA is effective for mild to moderate acne on skin that cannot tolerate strong acne treatments like benzoyl peroxide.

The good

  1. Silica and alcohol keep skin matte.
  2. Glycerin keeps dry acne prone skin hydrated.
  3. Licorice extract along with peeling agents lightens dark acne spots.
  4. Eperua falcata bark extract in it fights against inflammation and aging.
  5. Mild cases of acne (small pimples without too much swelling) will see a difference.

The bad

  1. The 3rd ingredient is denatured alcohol. It can irritate sensitive skin.
  2. The 4th ingredient is dimethicone, which is a mildly comedogenic silicone.
  3. Low percent of actives.


Due to a low percentage of peeling agents, Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti Imperfection Hydrating Care is only suitable for mild cases of acne. With its silica, alcohol and silicone content, it can be useful as a mattifying primer, but not exactly an acne cream for moderate to severe acne. For that, it is a bit pricey.
