The Vichy Meta Whitening Sleeping Mask comes in a sturdy jar packaging. The product is a light-pink colored gel with white beads filled in it. The beads are not exfoliating and burst almost as soon as you start massaging the product into your skin. One thing very noticeable about this product is its discernible smell of alcohol. Although I haven’t ever felt uncomfortable while using this product, the dominating smell of alcohol is enough to deter me form using it when my skin is particularly feeling irritated (like after a threading or exfoliation).
The product is meant to be used as a sleeping mask 1-2 times per week as well as a night time moisturiser. As a sleeping mask (which just means applying a thicker layer of the product right before you sleep), it can feel a bit sticky. Since I have an oily/ sensitive skin combination, I like to sleep with a thoroughly cleansed face and so wasn’t very comfortable with the sticky feeling. However, I’ve been particularly enjoying using this as a night time moisturiser. As a night care, you need to use a small quantity of the product and massage it into your skin. Done this way, it absorbs into the skin fast and leaves just a healthy sheen behind. Ever since I’ve been using this product, I wake up to a very well-hydrated and radiant skin. Regarding its melanin correction claims, I feel that it has worked a bit to reduce my skin’s hyper-pigmentation. But its complexion brightening and hydrating effect is what has got me hooked on to it. For this very reason, I feel that this product would work really well for dull complexions.

Vichy Ideal White Meta Whitening Sleeping Mask is a gel-based product that works well to boost the skin’s radiance while you sleep. I didn’t particularly enjoy using it as a sleeping mask but as night care, it works really well to hydrate the skin, decrease its pigmentation and enhance the natural glow. It will work across a range of skin types from slightly oily-normal-slightly dry, especially those prone to dullness. Sensitive skin types, however, need to use their discretion because of the discernible amount of alcohol in it.
