We all know I have a love affair with French pharmacy brands. This is mostly due to Lisa Eldridge who says she uses French pharmacy skincare on models to tackle so many skin concerns. I was lucky enough to receive a pre-sample (see below for production bottle) of Vichy Mineral 89 – I have been trialling it for a few weeks now, and I absolutely love it.
Vichy Mineral 89 Serum is a next-generation treatment that harvests the power of Vichy Mineralizing Water, born in the French Volcanoes. The serum is 89% Mineralising Thermal Water enriched with 15 rare minerals and Hyaluronic Acid. Delivering an intense boost of hydration while creating a completely transparent veil to protect your skin against daily pollutants as well as visible effects of stress and fatigue.
Vichy Mineral 89 is free from fragrance and oil, dermatologically tested on sensitive skin and allergy tested, making it ideal for even the most sensitive skin types with just 11 ingredients in total.
As an oily skin type, I love to layer lightweight serums, especially in the morning instead of a heavy moisturiser. Vichy Mineral 89 disappears into my skin without a trace, giving a hydrated feeling with no residue or grease – creating a perfect base for applying makeup. I would not be without this as a step in my skincare routine from now on.
Vichy Mineral 89 is currently 25% off and exclusive to Look Fantastic £18.75 (RRP: £25.00) FREE DELIVERY.
I would recommend Vichy mineral 89 to all skin types, here are some 5 star reviews from the website:
Normal Skin: ‘A MUST HAVE FOR ME! – Absolutely in love with this product, I hate the feeling of a greasy face so i’m really conscious about trying new serums/moisturisers. This is now my go to product. I was so surprised how quickly the serum is absorbed and how refreshed (yet not greasy) my skin felt and looked after use. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.’
Oily Skin: ‘A MUST HAVE – I absolutely love this serum, I have oily skin and so I am wary about using serums as they can sometimes feel heavy and leave my skin very greasy. This serum is lightweight and is fine to use throughout the day, I use it under my makeup and have had no problems! I would highly recommend this to anyone especially if you have oily skin!’
Dry Skin: ‘A MUST FOR DRY SKIN – This has a beautiful texture, smooth and easy to apply. Some serums are sticky but this doesn’t leave any residue. I apply a couple of drops before moisturiser and my dry/dehydrated skin feels plumper and leaves a lovely glow. Perfect.’
Combination Skin: ‘CLEAR SKIN AND A FRESH FACE – This product left my skin looking clear, bright and refreshed. It really hydrated my skin and wasnt sticky or tacky, it was instantly absorbed into the skin. Would definetly recommend for a skin boost. My skin is radiant, clear and glowing 5stars worthy!’
Sensitive Skin: ‘NEW STAPLE – This is such a great product – I like that the ingredients are so simple which means it doesn’t irritate my skin. I’m using it as my moisturiser at the moment but in the winter I think I’ll layer a thicker moisturiser over it for extra moisture.’
