Summary
Due to numerous promotional Vichy campaigns, both my mom (a bit shy of 65) and me (a bit shy of 35) have had our share of Vichy Liftactiv Supreme. It is designed to treat ageing issues from 35+, but in practice barely any anti-age effect has been noticed. However, it is a pretty good moisturizer. It absorbs within minutes and slightly smooths and refreshes the skin. It has a light texture and does not contribute to any film on the skin. It also goes well as a pre-make up tool allowing a good base and not contributing to any 'rolls' (but, it also does not have an SPF protection, so the use is limited). It smells slightly like a raspberry (to my mind) and the scent evaporates within seconds following the application. Apart from its failure to combat the wrinkles I also experienced slight tingling or even burning sensation on the skin upon application. No other adverse effects or redness or rash though. Still it felt rather unpleasant for me and made me think that I had some personal 'hidden' allergy to it. Mom did not experience the same.
In a nutshell, I can not recommend this cream for its intended use, and although it is good as a moisturizer, there are less pricey brands that provide nearly the same results.

Cream is lightweight and does absorb well, but that's about the only positives I can say about LIFTACTIV Supreme. The main ingredients seem to be anti-inflammatory i.e.: Rhamnose and adenosine, along with "optical brighteners". Nothing here that is ground breaking.

I was sent the normal to combination formula, which may account for why the degree of moisturising wasn't enough for my skin. As for the anti-inflammatory and brightening claims, I didn't see evidence of either of these. No SPF is also big no-no considering Vichy markets itself strongly as being very science-based, let's protect your skin. I'm not saying no SPF should put you off buying any brand of facial moisturiser, but considering this particular Vichy range is supposed to be "anti-ageing", it seems to me that UVA/UVB protection would be top of the list.

You can do a lot better for less money, so I'm giving this one a miss.
