Review - Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster

I'm always battling with dry and dehydrated skin.. even when I do nothing different, my skin will react differently all the time.

Aging, environmental pollution, stress and diet causes all the problems.. we have to keep changing. To me... changing of skin care products also kinda helps to target skin issue (stick to those that work great as the basic and add on different booster, serum to target the skin concerns)

When I learned about this NEW Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster.. I'm excited... I love Vichy thermal water and my dehydrated skin need some extra HA boost!

Review on the Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster

  • I use it together with my usual skincare products and it works great.


  • I didn't change or start using new products (because I want to know if the serum do any good on my skin)... simply just add in the Vichy Mineral 89 into my routine, I can say that I do see results and my skin really enjoy the extra boost of hydration.



I have dry skin with dehydration issue from time to time... seriously sometimes I think that I have chronic dry skin symptoms! Because my skin will become dehydrated like every few weeks!

No change on skincare, no change on my diet and yet my skin will still become tight, dry, itchy and red... (sigh~)

MAYBE I didn't drink enough water... 
Aircon too strong in my room (BUT I only and always set it on 24°C leh~) ... 
Had too much coffee and tea? (lolx...)
I should consider changing my diet and lifestyle... maybe get out more, be more active and ects~



Dry skin need "oil" 
Dehydrated skin need "water"



  • The consistency of the booster feel quite watery.... like a more liquid and light version of a "gel" (not really that gel~ish.. but more of a thicker toner lotion type of texture)
  • Very easy to spread out on the skin without tugging/pulling the skin
  • Feels quite nice, soothing and refreshing on the skin
    I apply this after misting my face.. so my skin was a little damp and this feel watery on the skin. 
  • Absorbed really nicely without feeling oily nor too sticky on the skin
  • Skin feel hydrated and soft
  • No skin irritation
  • No itchy skin
  • Doesn't cause any break-out
When skin is well hydrated... a lot of signs of aging will start to diminishing.
Skin routine::
  • I'm using 2 type of mists... Vichy thermal spa water (the popular mineralizing water...) and Hardy & Co Dewy Skin anti-aging champagne mist. (Let it sit on my skin for about 20 seconds and lightly pat it in.
  • Apply 2 pumps of Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster... once absorbed apply another layer if skin are pretty dehydrated
  • Cream (NUXE or DSC day and night cream~)
  • Oils -  Mix Sweet almond oil and tamanu oil to finish off my skincare routine.
Before I start using Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster...
my skin texture feel quite nice (not too dry nor tight, no irritation and itchy skin) ... but once every few weeks... my skin will start to feel dry on the surface (dehydrated)... will have a bit of powdery skin texture (the beginning of flakey skin)...

I have been having dehydrating issue for about a week and I realised that the products I'm using are mostly high in the oil department and lack of the "water" (dehydrated skin need water... where dry skin need oil...)

When I was thinking about adding hyaluronic acid serum or toner lotion.... I received a bottle of Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster.... what a great timing !

I always do patch test before using the product on my whole face (because of my sensitive skin) and so after 2 days of testing the product on my inner arm and the back of my ear with no issue... I start applying the Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster on my whole face!

After 3 days of adding the Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster into my skincare routine, I noticed the powdery feeling of my skin texture are slowly feeling like skin texture again and after 7 days... OMGOSH!... my skin feel like a normal skin, no dryness, tightness and feel really nice to touch!

The Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster work so well with my cream and oils!
Recently, my skin start to feel dehydrated again (still using the same skincare products) .... I blame it on sleeping in air-con, lack of water AND I'm sick... when I'm sick, my skin always feel so dry and tight!

So I apply 2 layers of Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster to see if it can boost up the hydration level... it does feel nicer, but the results was kinda slow and these couple of days.. I tried to layer more...

Korean love doing layering (layering their toner lotion for hydrating) and Sophia mentioned about layering of serum also something quite popular now in Korea...
So I try to layer more of the Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster (like 3 or 4 layers) and just one night, I can feel the different!!!! Amazing!!! My skin still feels a little powdery BUT it's not feeling tight nor itchy anymore... and my skin is feeling more plump and supple!! (thumb up!)


Tip 1
When you have broken skin, it's nature that the skin will feel a little burning sensation (thick layer of product will intensify the burning sensation...) so I say try masking your face with cotton pad or dry mask soak with Vichy thermal water for about 5 mins daily, apply a thin layer of cream and oil.... once the skin not so flakey... have fun with layering!!!

Tip 2
With hydrated and well balance skin (oil/water balance)... you can start to add in skincare that will do wonder on pores, fine lines and pigmentation.

If your skin are very sensitive (like mine) try to do very basic skincare without much layering of different products.. You don't want to stress your skin ... so "less = more" for stress skin, very sensitive skin or irritation skin... once the skin feeling relax and less trouble, you can just add in different products slowly to boost up your skin immunity (if you are not afraid of using pure oil...100% oils... there are a lot of different oils that will help to boost up your skin health.)

I have been really enjoy using pure oils and I really seeing GREAT results...
I will talk more on my favourite oils other times.
 



The bottle of 30 ml, can last more then a month of heavy usage (I start using the Vichy Mineral 89 Skin fortifying daily Booster on 15 May and I took these pictures tuesday... and I still have like 1/3 of product left!)


Both are glass bottles~ 
Which feel quite solid and thick
(don't drop it... it will hurt your toes more then the glass bottle)
