With two white clays, the new purifying mask by Vichy is ideal when you return from the holidays to absorb excess sebum and cleanse skin in depth after all the excesses of solar creams that clogged it. Apply its creamy formula in a thick layer after a small massage from the inside to the outside and a 5 minute pose. Thanks to its smoothing and moisturizing active ingredients, skin is no longer aggressed and skin pores are tightened—your complexion becomes radiant and your tan is enhanced.
