I love this product since it was recommended to me by another mnetter ages ago and have recently bought some only to find that it is now being made to a much thinner consistencyshock. IMO it is nothing like it used to be and doesnt provide anywhere near the coverage.I loved the thick coverage it gave and it honestly doesnt last as long either on the skin.I am so disappointed and have sent off an email of complaint just now to Vichy.
Has anyone else found this?

I haven't used it for a while, so don't know about the change, although I was thinking of trying it again, so thanks for the heads up. I do sometimes still use the stick foundation version - which can be used as a foundation or concealer - so maybe you could try that? I really like it as a full coverage foundation.

Quinn you were the one who recommended it to me yonks ago-was under a different alias then << locks Quinn in a bear hug>>.I was so grateful at the time as it was just what I was looking for.Am really annoyed about this nowangry.I am really interested to see if anyone else has found this.I was back in the place I bought it yesterday and mentioned it to the cosmetics lady and she said 'yes they have recently changed it to a thinner consistency'.Why wont they leave successful products alone?

That sucks that they've changed it. An alternative for you might be the Estee Lauder double wear Maximum coverage foundation ( it's in a dark blue tube ) - that's excellent. Also, La Roche Posay do a good full coverage foundation. Can't remember what it's called. Let me try and find a link. Anyhow, these two are quite comparable to the old Vichy Dermablend, especially the Estee Lauder maximum coverage.

Would Dermacolor be of any use?
