Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder Review

I spoke about the Vichy Dermablend Foundation* last week where I also showed a sneak preview of the Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder*. I was kindly gifted this powder at the #Discovervichy Event back in August and I have really enjoyed using it.  I usually stick to my normal compact powder from MAC and you all know that the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish is my favourite. However, there are times you just want a light powder that does not really add any more coverage or colour to your face and this is where the Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder* comes in. The only other loose setting powder I have in my stash is the Kuddy Ultra HD Powder* which I also really like. The Vichy Dermablend one is not necessarily a HD powder but it acts in the same way with even more benefits. I am really impressed with it and it goes so well with the Vichy Dermablend foundation and a range of other foundations as well.

I feel there is little one can do to make a setting powder in a loose form different from all the others. However, I do like that the Vichy Dermblend powder has a sticker at the top which prevents the powder from wasting when not in use. I absolutely adore this and that’s why it is one I pop in my bag when travelling. It has a really classy white and black packaging which feels quite sturdy but not heavy if that makes any sense. You get 28g of product which is a lot for a powder and I can not see this powder finishing any time soon. It also comes with a powder puff which is really good quality compared to some substandard ones I have tried (those that come in some compact powders). I don't use this much though because I can't bear to see it dirty so I just use it sparingly.

 It is expected that loose setting powders have a light texture and that’s exactly what you get with the Vichy Dermablend Powder. I am really impressed with how ultra fine the particles are which makes it super easy to use. It is a universal shade so it fits everyone and I am really pleased about that. I do have to mention that I am sometimes sceptical when I see powders labelled as universal but come in completely white powders. I always fear I would look ashy but I am super impressed that the Dermablend powder is truly translucent.

I would not say it has any coverage per say because it is not designed as a powder to add coverage. Rather it helps set my foundation and  keep my face matte, shine and oil-free. I love that it does not give my face a super matte and dry look; my face still looks healthy. I already mentioned it has a light texture so it does not feel like you have anything on at all

I am so pleased that its  effects are not short-lived. I find that it helps control oil on my face so much more than other powders I have tried especially during summer. I wish it came in a compact form as I would take it with me for on-the-go touch ups. I have really enjoyed using it and I still use it even now my skin is not very oily  (I am not very oily during A/W)

Cost// from £15 (Currently on sale for £11.25 in Boots)
I think it comes at a really reasonable price- £15 although there are always lovely Vichy offers in Boots, Escentual and Dermacenter.  Boots currently have it on sale for £11.25 which is an amazing bargain so if you wanted to get it, this is a good time.  You almost never have to pay full price but even at £15, I do think it is pretty affordable. You get a good amount of product which I don't see finishing any time soon especially as you only need a little at a time.

Overall Thoughts
I can’t really think of anything I don’t like about this powder. I guess the only downside may be the fact that it may not be the easiest to carry around in your handbag. If it were in a compact form, I would be the happiest person ever. It may even replace my MAC MSF. That's pretty much my review. I hope you enjoyed it. Have you tried the Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder?..xx
