I admit it; I don’t pay as much attention to skin care as I do makeup. Can you tell, LOL? But when I hear a buzz about one, I try and investigate as it seems to be where technological advances shine, which fascinates me.
What I do know is that most of time the first ingredient in a skin care products seems to always be water and I also know that as we age our skin becomes more dehydrated. To keep the skin plump and hydrated can be a challenge for both men and women. So saying this VICHY Minéral 89 ($29.50/1.69oz @ vichyusa.com, dermstore.com, ulta.com, walgreens.com) is just made up of water would be accurate but it’s not just any water. Like all the products in the Vichy line, they contain mineralizing thermal water found in the volcanoes in Vichy, France; 4,000 meters underground (just let that sink in for a moment!). This water contains a super unique blend of 15 skin-strengthening minerals that protect the skin against free radicals and this blend also balances the skin’s pH, which is important.
So what makes this Minéral 89 stand out? It also contains Hyaluronic Acid, which replenishes the moisture your skin needs, and is suitable for every skin type.
I’ve been using it for a solid 3 weeks just before my moisturizer at bedtime, and I hate to sound like a commercial, but I have caught myself taking an extra look at my skin; specifically, the cheek area. It just seems smoother than usual and my skin is usually not that clear this time of year.
And the price tag doesn’t hurt either.
