Product: Vichy Bi-White Med
Promise: Fairer skin with visibly reduced brown spots
Reviewer’s skin type: Combination, sensitive
Pros: While the packaging with its clinical feel is far from appealing, the product begins to perform immediately after the first couple of applications. My skin seemed clearer, even brighter. It even appeared to have a reducing effect on minor acne flare-ups.
Cons: For Rs 1,990, the product might scare the faint-hearted. The only complaint is that the cream starts leaking from your pores when you sweat, no matter how much earlier you applied it. That leaves small whitish marks on the face which then dry up into unfortunate residue.
Verdict: If it advertised itself as a fairy godmother for those seeking clearer skin, this product would be spot on. Fairer skin? Probably not.
