Vichy Mineral 89

Vichy Mineral 89 Fortifying and Plumping Booster, R375

What they say: Mineral 89 combines our highest concentration of Vichy Thermal Mineralizing Water, along with Hyaluronic acid, to plump and strengthen the skin barrier and protect it from pollution. Our skin is the shield between our body and the external world, protecting it from daily aggressors such as pollution – hence it is essential to keep it strong and resilient. Mineral 89’s breakthrough formula does just that:

A daily dose of strength for your skin.

A 11 ingredient only formula suitable for sensitive skin.

A fresh, light gel-like texture that absorbs into the complexion immediately, drenching it with moisture.

The first step in your skincare regime which leaves skin plump, protected and ready for the next step.

What I say: Well, anything that’s 89% water that promises to hydrate my skin is going to be a winner.

As explained above, thanks to hyaluronic acid, they have managed to create a serum that is 89% Vichy thermal water. Fabulous news for dehydrated skin everywhere. Coined as the first step in your skincare routine, this is more of a pre-serum than an actual treatment serum, and promises to pump and prime your skin for the day ahead. There are only 11 ingredients, so suitable for even the most sensitive of skins.

The texture is like, well, thick water, I guess. It absorbs instantly and plays well with all the other products I apply over the top, including makeup. I’ve been using it daily for three weeks now, and my skin couldn’t be happier. My fine lines have improved and my complexion is more even.

If you’re reading this thinking that it won’t be for you because you have oily skin, make sure you know the difference between dry and dehydrated skin, as often, oily skins suffer with dehydration just as much as dry skins. I’ve done a post on the topic here. Chances are, you’ll benefit greatly from adding this to your routine. Basically, just get your hands on a bottle – you can thank me later.
