I usually use Proactiv products with my skincare regimen. When I was traveling in Europe a few years ago, I had forgotten to pack some of my usual products and needed something to basically get my face clean, especially in the hot summer sun. I purchased some Vichy products from a local pharmacy in Florence, Italy, and it happened to be Vichy. The shopkeeper didn't speak very good English, so I judged the product based on its label and that it had some English words. I have remained with the Vichy product line since then. This product is particularly good in that it isn't harsh on my skin, and it really does appear to work for my oily face. Possibly the best attribute to this product (and really all Vichy products) is the pleasant smell. Unlike some other face products that can tend to smell like medicine, this smells just clean with a slight hint of a floral scent. The great thing is that this nice smell really seems to last all day. Overall, I really like all Vichy products, and this in particular, because they work and because they are quality.
