How do you use it?
On a clean skin, massage the moisturizing gel all over the face, a little goes a long way, in the morning and evening. Wait a few minutes for the gel to soak into the skin. I love using it at night time, because I wake up to healthy looking skin. 
 
Best for winter or summer?
It's best for winter, but you can use it in the summer, especially when you have stressed the skin, like being in the sun for a long time. 

How long did I test it for?
6 Months

How much is it & what’s the size?
It is $31. SIZE 50ml 1.69 fl oz

How’s the distribution? Available freely or limited?
You can easily order it online or buy it at different partner stores such as Target, CVS, Walgreens, etc. It's usually available and not too limited although some stores seem to run out of it, but within a week it is back on the shelf. 

What’s good about it?
Healing properties. When I burnt my skin with Tee tree essential oil, this product was a miracle worker. It peeled off the burns without leaving a scar. Basically the burn slid right off my face. Also it healed pretty quickly. It is very easy to use. The packaging is great and looks good for the price. This mineral water gel based formula can be used as a great moisturizer for dry skin. It really keeps your skin moisture up all day. Your skin just has a nice plump, well moisture look afterwards. For how good the product worked, the price is not too bad at all. Because it is water based and oil free, it works on all skin types. 
In February, when I had the worst break out of my life. Tried to treat it with Tea tree essential oil and I burnt my skin. Applied the Vichy Gel twice a day, and it cleared up without leaving a mark. 
What’s not so good about it? It takes a while for it to absorb into my skin. So I have to wait a few minutes more than usual, before I can apply makeup on my face. But besides this, the product is awesome.

Would I purchase/repurchase?
Yes I will. I might not use this everyday, but its definitely something to have in my skincare cabinet incase of emergency like a burn, irritation, or even in the winter when my skin is extra dry and needs a picker upper. 

Do you need it? 
Skin needs moisture to not be dehydrated; the hyaluronic acid in it is an essential. It also gives a very nice dewy look. If you have super dry skin, or irritated skin, this miracle mineral water gel product is best for you to use daily. You see results or a big difference in a matter of days.
Vichy's Aqualia Thermal Mineral Water Gel is $31.00 from Target and Vichy USA
