I haven’t tried Vichy in a long while, but this newly launched Minéral 89 Skin Fortifying Daily Booster sure got my attention. Mine is in a limited edition packaging by the way, the usual one is much bigger! Formulated with just 11 ingredients and 89% pH Balancing Thermal Water, alongside an extra-pure natural hyaluronic acid, Minéral 89 by Vichy helps to strengthen skin and boost its defence against the environment. We’ve all heard of thermal water in the form of facial mists, but the serum version sure is a first – for me at least.
Used as a first step of my morning routine, before toner/facial mist, it helps reinforces skin barrier function before stepping out to face the daily skin aggressors. This gel texture is super lightweight and liquefies into water upon application, resulting in quick absorption into my skin. To me, the selling point is definitely the hyaluronic acid to help kick up my hydration level before I spend the day in my office; my dry skin is noticeably soothed after using it too. I have been using it for close to a fortnight now, and though I have yet to notice much visible difference on myself, my facial therapist noted that my skin was much more glowy than my previous treatment. That’s a good sign right? 😉
Just for my kitties, you can get a 1 week trial here and see the difference yourselves! x
