Every day, our skin is affected by aggressors such as pollution and fatigue which causes our skin to be dull and dehydrated. Just like how our body needs vitamins to be healthy, our skin needs to have minerals to strengthen itself and fight against skin stressors. For many years now, my skin has been plagued with hydration issues and I’m all for discovering new skincare products to help my skin stay moisturised and healthy.
Empowered by in-depth expertise on the impacts of external aggressors on our human skin, Vichy Laboratories creates the first daily care to reinforce the skin’s crucial barrier and promote its optimal health – Vichy Minéral 89 Skin Fortifying Daily Booster.
Made up of 89% Vichy pH Balancing Thermal Water (which is a favourite of mine in the Thermal Spa Water facial mist I have been using for years), this daily booster, with its naturally unique formula rich in 15 essential minerals, actively participates in skin’s health. It helps increases skin strength, preparing the skin to resist against environmental aggressors. With Hyaluronic Acid, the gel-like moisturiser also fortifies skin and delivers a boost of hydration for a natural healthy glow.
After using for about a week, I can visibly see that my skin feels more hydrated and plumped up, even in air-conditioning. My skin is naturally dry on the surface and oily inside, hence this moisturising formula really helps to boost hydration levels. It is light-weight, fast-absorbing and totally transparent too. It’s like a moisturiser that surpasses all the fuss to bring you instant hydration and softer skin.
When you first apply, note that you’ll first feel a sticky feeling which will quickly disappear to reveal a velvety smooth finish. It’s also non-greasy, fragrance-free and oil-free. Tested for allergy and on sensitive skin, the booster proves to work effectively without causing discomfort. Well, having sensitive skin, I can totally vouch for that.
I was totally sold by the minimalistic packaging of the Minéral 89 coupled with an 89% concentration of Vichy pH Balancing Thermal Water alongside high-dose of hyaluronic acid. No fancy labels or packaging, just efforts focusing on having a product that works. Two thumbs up for this new-found moisturiser. It’s definitely going to stay in my skincare stash for a really long time.
The Vichy Minéral 89 (50ml) retails for SGD62 and is available at leading pharmacies including Watsons, Guardian, Unity and selected hospital pharmacies. Note that this is a Limited Edition 30ml size. The full-sized product is 50ml.
Create yourself and be gorgeous! XOXO, Roanna.
