Serums are an important part of my daily skincare regime. Be it a single serum or multiple serums that I layer based on my skin’s need, I never miss out on a serum, not a single day. Weather change and environmental factors have always affected my skin, not much in a good way, so in turn, I have to take extra care of my skin. I have been using Vichy Mineral 89 Daily Skin Booster Serum since last six month, on and off, either as a single serum or layering it over my other treatment serum. It has never disappointed me, like other products that I have used from the brand.
Vichy Mineral 89 (CAD $39.95) is described as a pure and powerful formula concentrated with 89% Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water, born in the French volcanoes, and associated with natural hyaluronic acid. It hydrates to strengthen skin and protect it against aggressors like weather changes, stress, fatigue and pollution, factors that lead to dull skin, skin damage, and weak skin barrier. It is suitable for all skin types, even the sensitive ones. It is paraben free, fragrance-free, alcohol-free, oil-free, non-greasy, and silicone free.
I have been reaching out for this serum when my skin needs an extra boost of hydration or if my skin is feeling dehydrated. The texture of the serum is a light gel which absorbs very fast into the skin without leaving any oiliness or greasy feeling. I use it after cleansing and before my moisturizer or another serum. It even works great the next day after using the detox or clay mask, I have noticed it balances the skin without making it dry or oily. My skin feels hydrated and plump when I use this serum, it does feel very lightweight.
The makeup sits on well on the skin with this serum, no issues of rolling off or caking. I have used it day and night with no irritation or breakouts, that is a plus for acne prone skin types as it hydrates already irritated skin without causing more congestion. I still have a half bottle left, and it will be over by the end of winter. The packaging is in a heavy glass bottle with a pump which dispenses the right amount of serum, I need one and a half pump to cover my face and a part of the neck.
Overall, it is a nice serum to add to your skincare routine in any season when your skin needs an extra boost of hydration and plumpness, without breakouts or congestion, for all skin types. Vichy Mineral 89 is available at Vichy.ca, beauty boutique online.
