Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10: Dermatocare Reviews
Liftactiv Serum 10 is an anti-wrinkle serum suitable for oily skin types.
Will it work?
Liftactiv Serum 10 has 4 anti-aging ingredients:
- Salicyloyl Phytosphingosine is a ceramide derivative that helps in repair of photo-aged skin as proven in a study.
- Rhamnose is a sugar derived from natural sources that are shown to have an anti-aging effect in a study. Vichy uses this ingredient at a high concentration of 5 % and claims that its anti-ageing efficacy has been demonstrated by medical research and protected by seven patents.
- Sodium Hyaluronate is a sodium salt of the hyaluronic acid that is a natural component of the dermal layer of skin, and hence it might help in reducing the wrinkles only if it gets absorbed. This is so because few studies claim that hyaluronic acid is too big to reach the dermal layer skin and hence acts as an excellent moisturiser by absorbing water 1000 times its volume, giving a smoother appearance to the skin.
- Adenosine has anti-aging and skin rejuvenating benefits.
Liftactiv Serum 10 might help in reducing wrinkles when used continuously. However, don’t expect that you will look younger overnight as claimed. For more details, read this article to know what to expect from anti-aging creams.
For which skin type?
Liftactiv Serum 10 is best suited for oily skin because it has a very thin consistency and is unlikely to clog the pores. It is not recommended for dry to combination skin types because it might not have enough moisturization.
Is it safe?

Will it irritate sensitive skin?
Sensitive skin types can also try this serum because it does not have major irritating ingredient. However, a patch test is recommended before first use.
