I’m very loyal to Philosophy’s bodycare products, simply because they are effective for my skin all year. I’m happy to report that Vichy offers a very good alternative.
Vichy NutriExtra Fluid Replenishing Nourishing Body Care was a surprisingly moisturizing lotion for so thin a formula. Unfortunately, I was not able to test it in winter conditions. Although the lotion is thinner, it is not necessarily a deciding factor for whether it will perform worse in cold and drying conditions – current science and engineering can do wonders. Of course, being the experimenter that I am, I tested in on my face when it is written not to. I do have somewhat sensitive skin and I use Philosophy’s creams on it without problem and with a lot of benefit. NutriExtra Body Care successfully passed the face test. It didn’t make my skin oily, sensitive, or cause it to break out. Conclusively, it is a great whole body product. The only problem I saw with it was its scent. On its own, it is a nice, clean floral. However, it may alter the smell of perfume. Whether this will be for the better or not is dependent on the person and his or her preferences.
Having been using Philosophy’s products happily for a few years, I will not be switching to Vichy NutriExtra. However, if it does come into my possession, I will put it to use. My skin feels good with it, it is just not the smell that I prefer.
