The challenge ends this Wed, 24 Nov. I'll just like to write a little post to share my challenger and my journey with VICHY.
1 month back, VICHY contacted me regarding this contest. They told me that Normaderm, the anti-blemish range, helps to reduce acne, redness and shine. And they are max confident of their products. They told me to find a friend who has these skin problems and they'll put her on a 2 week skin challenge.
I attended a rather educational talk about their product USPs and they even gave me a skin test. Of which I tested results of moderate to very high sebum on my cheeks and forehead. :/
1 month later, the challenge has ended and my dearest friend, Angeline, who was my friend who took up this challenge, has benefited so much from this.
Angeline and I go way back. We've been friends for... 13 years...! Check out an old secondary school photo of us!
It was racial harmony day. Angeline's the one on the left most of this pic and I'm the one in the blue sari. Oh those were the times. I think her skin was better then cos we didn't have makeup on in secondary school.
We kept in touch and 13 years later, and we're closer than we've ever been. Thanks to VICHY of course. However what makes this challenge most rewarding would be that:
The end result may not look like there was much improvements and to be honest, I didn't notice it myself too. Not until I met her in person and took a closer look.
1) Her pores on her cheek area are smaller.
2) Her pimples have cleared (even though midway through the challenge there was a fresh bout of ache attack)
3) She uses less oil absorbent sheets and skin stays matt longer.
4) But the BEST change of it all? Her chin area which used to be SEVERELY plaugued with tiny acne, is now completely cleared. Yup. Cleared. What's left are the nasty acne scars which will heal in time.
Did other products do it for her? Nope.
What helped her achieve this result? Yes, VICHY's Normaderm range. Click here to read her account of this challenge.
Even her hubby noticed this change. Her hubby who, like most husbands, are oblivious to the little changes in a woman's life. I'm glad to hear her friends asking her what's her secret and hearing her sharing her VICHY experience.
Most importantly, she gained the confidence that there is a cure/solution for her skin.
Girl, I'm loving the new confident you!
Throughout this challenge, a lot of emphasis was placed on getting all your friends to vote for you everyday. It started with just 3 photos, once every day and at this point, it was to vote 15 photos, once everyday. It has been 1 month of voting. I hereby sincerely thank all who voted for Angeline. I know it was tiring. But thank you for your support.
A lot of people asked me whether their constant voting is worth it, seeing that the other contestant's votes were a lot higher. I told them to give their best.
I had to keep reminding Angeline and myself that this challenge is NOT about the voting. It's about whose face as made the most improvements. And I believe the Normaderm products on Angeline's face have done us proud.
We're at the last leg of the contest now. I can't wait to see who wins but may the best man (woman) win. At the end of the day, having better skin makes us all winners already.
Three cheers to Angeline, who fought her fear of showing her "ugly" photos to all her friends on facebook. Who showed much bravery by participating in this and "expose" her skin this way. Because hey, I'm not so sure I'll be able to do the same!
Three cheers to the great people at VICHY, who gave me and Angeline this opportunity.
Three cheers to our friends and readers who voted. Every vote counts. Thank you!
