Hi dc curly !

Here is the store locator link on the vichy usa website - maybe it would help??? I found Vichy Dermablend when I did a search, but not the Aera Teinte. I think the Aera Teinte is newer, but I can't say for certian because I never used this line before the foundation was recommended to me.

Here is a photo of the foundation itself:

Most of the links I could find when googling were from the UK. I live in Canada and you can find Vichy products in almost all drug stores and in many of the 'super' grocery stores that also have beauty, household items, etc.
The Aera Teinte foundation comes in a bottle and a tube. My skin gets very dry. The one in the tube is meant for dry skin. The coverage you get from it is amazing. I take an ivory in most foundation brands and I still take an ivory in the Vichy Aera Teinte.

I never used to have to use a primer, but the older I got the dryer my skin has become. I also have a lot of redness in my skin, which is why I need the extra coverage that this foundation gives me. I wish I didn't have to use a primer, but without it the makeup doesn't last on my skin and I don't get the coverage I need. There is a natural primer that doesn't contain silicones. I use it in the summer time by Exuberance; my skin is nowhere near as dry at that time of year. Here is the link for it:

What I love about this foundation is that my skin looks younger in it. Most higher coverage foundations aged me and I looked like I was wearing a mask. With this one, I get the coverage, but it doesn't look like I have my face caked with makeup.

Good luck finding it ... if you can't find the Aera Teinte, you might want to give the Dermablend version a try. I'm always surprised when I can get something in Canada that is difficult to find in the U.S. - that SELDOM happens. Hopefully this is not the case ... perhaps it is a brand that is readily available at drug stores for you as well, so it isn't sold on line as often ??

I'm looking for a new foundation as well. I've been using the Laura Mercier TM, but this thread made me think there might be something better out there. I've always liked FrizzBgone's hair care recs and they've worked for me...but where do you find Vichy? I googled, couldn't find a source in the US. (and of course, this is the one I want to try)
