Vichy Bi-White Med Essence Review and Blogger Meet

Being a Francophile it was but natural that when Vichy, the French pharmacy brand was launched in India in 2003, I would incorporate some of their skincare into my daily routine. My skincare then was very basic (I was just 24) and consisted of only Vichy Normaderm cleanser, toner and moisturiser. Soon, I also went on to use the Normaderm Triactive (reviewed here) and Normaderm Hyaluspot (reviewed here) as well as the Capital Soleil (reviewed here) so you can understand how much I love this brand. Needless to say, when Vichy had their first blogger meet last month, I was thrilled to attend it. Read on to know more about the event and a mini-review of the Bi-White Med Essence….

Vichy Bi-White Med Essence Review

The Vichy team gave us some of their best-sellers but the product I was really eager to try out first was the Bi-White Med since my main concern at the moment are the sun spots and marks left behind by the acne breakouts. I started using this on the same night as the event and have been using it the whole month as part of my night-time routine.

The Bi-White Med Essence is a “Deep Corrective Whitening Essence” that “visibly reduces brown spots”. It is a tube with a slim nozzle that lets you precisely control the quantity that it dispenses. Since it is such a compact tube, it is extremely travel-friendly too and had accompanied me on my New Year’s Eve trip to Matheran.

The Bi-White Med Essence has a very light texture and gets easily absorbed into the skin without leaving it shiny. Vichy’s products have a unique fragrance; all Normaderm products have a similar fragrance as do all the Bi-White ones. It isn’t a heavy or strong fragrance and doesn’t linger after application.

Since it is an essence, it can be used in conjuction with your existing skincare, after the toner/mist and before the moisturiser. I have been using it only at night and you have to see my skin in the morning to believe me when I say my skin looks radiant! The brown sun spots and acne marks are still there, but they are slowly diminishing in size.

But the best part is the wound on my forehead, where I had got hurt a couple of months ago, and which just refused to fade, has become significantly lighter now! So I’m sure it will definitely help me with the sun spots and acne marks.

Vichy Bi-White Med Essence ingredients
The Bi-White Med Essence has a paraben-free formula and in this one month of using it, it hasn’t made me break out. I guess the Salicylic Acid in it is responsible for preventing acne.
Priced at ₹1150 for 15ml, it is on the higher side but seeing how well it is working for me, I would say it is worth the price. I’m sure this tube is going to last me another month and I hope to see continued results with this.
