Image by name, Image by nature because this brightly coloured, clean-cut range is actually free of fancy frills and gimmicks and is all about the product. No fancy packaging to hide behind, just a bright, clinical-looking brand with a promise of hydrated, brighter-looking skin (as well as other things). Now Image Skincare is a brand that I was gifted way back when two skin serums arrived at my door. One, in truth, was not reallymy bag but the other .. well, it blew me away. That was the Vital C Serum and ever since then, this has been a brand on my radar to try more of. Knowing they are indeed stocked in many high-end salons worldwide enticed me into really getting to know them as it's not a brand you do hear of as often over social channels, but don't let that fool you because sometimes the best-kept secrets are for good reasons. 

Image Skincare Vital C 

About the Brand in brief

IMAGE Skincare was founded by an esthetician, developed by a plastic surgeon and is a clinical skincare brand powered by proven ingredients and smart botanicals. They have pioneered clean clinical skincare, with naturally effective, mindful formulas that deliver real results. The products are physician formulated and tested by a team of professionals. 

So, it isn't like we have heard this motto before, granted because of course, all brands will say that they are the first to do something ... but that is the beauty (excuse the pun) of skincare; there is a choice for everyone and you are bound to find 'the shoe that fits perfectly for you! This is the beauty of my job, where I can trial, report back then it is up to you whether you feel this could be ideal. 

As I mentioned their Vital C Serum drew me in. That product was magical and I will touch on it more but I was kindly offered up some more products to try from their range and the fact you are reading this means that they did not disappoint. 

This is a range designed to calm and revitalize skins so even if you don't fit into this category do not be deterred as they have such an extensive range within their catalogue so the version suited to your skin is definitely an option.

VITAL C Hydrating Facial Cleanser | (177ml) £32/€37

A creamy, lotion cleanser that emulsifies makeup and gently removes impurities while nourishing skin with essential antioxidants and vitamins. It infuses skin with high levels of antioxidant vitamin C to brighten as it cleanses.

The packaging is nice and simple and the smell of fresh oranges is a treat first thing in the morning to really wake you and your skin up! This is really unique being creamy, butter-like lotion as its a texture I haven't really come across in a cleanser but it feels so comforting and soothing that I welcome it. Especially now as the South of France is sunny yet very cold making this line is ideal for keeping my skin happy. A big plus is that with mask-wearing being part of life now, maskne is a real thing and this cleanser is ideal for keeping your skin soothed and happy. It is up to you how you remove it whether you use a damp face cloth or wash it off, it is undoubtedly a great cleanser for your skin needs some extra comfort and TLC. I love it and I can see why this is a best seller.

VITAL C Hydrating Antioxidant A C E Serum | (30ml) £79/€91

This is concentrated essence for the skin infused with vitamins A, C, E, and a powerful blend of plant antioxidants including green tea and echinacea extracts that help to reduce visible signs of ageing such as fine lines and dryness. Bearberry extract naturally helps to brighten the skin’s appearance. A complex of five amino acids supports healthy collagen and elastin.

This gorgeous essence feels like water on your skin making it super lightweight and easy to slot into your daily routine. It is light, refreshing with no worry about having too many layers of product going on so it really is such a simple way of getting a shot of hydration into your daily skin routine. The essence absorbs into your skin within seconds and again you get a lovely hit of citrus scent and a hydrated, complexion that has radiance to it. This is for those that don't maybe like heavy serums but want to add in some extra oomph into a simple routine. It is a little powerhouse of vitamins and one you'll love using all season in my opinion. I find the serums are definitely key items in Image's range that lure you in and get you hooked!

VITAL C Hydrating Anti-aging Serum | £83/€96 (pic above)

This best selling serum works effectively on all skin types to soften the appearance of wrinkles, support collagen and protect skin against oxidative damage. It acts as a wake-up call on the skin to fight the visible signs of stress and fatigue that commonly appear in ageing skin. 

This skincare gem was used up a long time ago as this comforting serum is what sold me on the brand and this entire Vital C line as it is absolutely fantastic. It is a lovely light lotion texture and feels so cooling and soothing on the skin. I wasn't expecting much from it I will admit when I first started using it as it didn't look anything fancy (I did, in fact, have the old packaging also) but my skin just got visibly better over the weeks and I knew the serum had been making a difference. I really love the fact that this combines Hyaluronic Acid with Vitamin C so you effectively get two in one as these are ingredients I always incorporate into my routine to keep it hydrated and looking bright and healthy. I believe this now comes in a deluxe size which just shows how it is loved by many and I have in fact really missed that in my routine but trying more of its relatives has been a joy.

Vital C Hydrating Repair Crème | £86/€100

This rich, reparative crème quenches dryness, soothes redness and comforts irritated skin. Ceramides help to prevent the evaporation of moisture by forming a protective barrier on the skin, while vitamins nourish and hyaluronic acid helps retain moisture. Physician formulated for Aging, Dry, dehydrated, Redness-prone skin.

This is comfort heaven. This gorgeous moisturiser will work for so many and although it isn't cheap as such, it is definitely worth it. This is no non-fancy being in very simple packaging but my god, it is a dream and it works. This is your hug in a pot and again, that citrus scent is never too much. Most repair creams today are quite basic looking and fragrance-free so I like that this feels more than that. There is some magic to this where it is very rich yet doesn't feel it and just leaves a nice soft feeling on your skin rather than any heavy residue. I love that this not only tackles skin's calmness but its anti-ageing too as being older with sensitive skin means you maybe want to use minimal products so choosing ones that multi-task is a key and a huge plus to this cream. Ultimately your skin will be smooth, calm, hydrated and very happy with this one. Like I mentioned, there are about 12 products within the Vital C family and I for one would try them all!

Round-Up ... 

A thing that I really like about this range is that in my opinion, I feel it has no real target age. Yes it has anti-ageing benefits so that helps us that need it (my hand is up) but who doesn't want all the things that it offers. I do feel that all skins could use the Vital C line you just need to pick what products would suit you more. For instance, the Repair Crème is definitely best suited to dry, dehydrated skins whereas oily/combo skins could get great results from the serums and a lighter cream .. as I obviously am trying what suits my skin. When I was reading the reviews of some of these products on their website, I noticed that the ages of people using the brand ranged from 25+ to 45+ which I think states my case. They really do work well for many skin ages. 

The only thing I can think of that wouldn't make you a fan of this range is you not being a fan of an orange peel scent. Although it is not overpowering at all, it is a part you can't escape. For me, its what adds to the loveliness of the Vital C Range. 

Price-wise, Image Skincare sits in that mid-range category so I think you could easily slot a few things into an existing skin routine before progressing. Top Tip; a key part to any good skincare routine is making sure you actually enjoy it because if you don't then you need to change it fast!
