Vichy Mineral 89 Fortifying and Hydrating Daily Skin Booster

Housed in an elegant and sturdy 50ml glass bottle equipped with a convenient pump dispenser, Vichy Mineral 89 is a lightweight gel hydration booster. Made with 89% Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water sourced from the French volcanoes of the Auvergne region, the product contains15 essential minerals that strengthen the skin by enforcing its defense against both environmental and internal aggressors (ex. UV rays, pollution, stress, lack of sleep). Additionally, the formulation is free of alcohols and silicones, and it is infused with a healthy dose of hyaluronic acid, which boosts hydration by drawing water towards the skin.

Vichy Mineral 89 Fortifying and Hydrating Daily Skin Booster
Although the product appears quite viscous in the bottle, it spreads surprisingly easily on the skin, absorbing very quickly, and leaving behind no greasy residue. With that said, I have noticed that when I apply makeup on top, there is slight pilling and shedding as the gel leaves behind just the thinnest layer of film. Therefore, the product doesn't pair very well with makeup so I would recommend wearing it at night or on days when you don't plan on putting on any foundation.
Although not specifically indicated, Vichy 89 can be used alone as a lightweight moisturizer or paired with your regular day or night cream. I find the product super hydrating without feeling greasy or heavy. It's a great summer daytime moisturizer for my oily skin and I would also recommend it for normal to dry skin looking for an extra boost of hydration! Overall, this is a great product! I love the simple ingredients and the refreshing, lightweight formulation.
