Interestingly, Vichy’s step 0 in your skincare routine and one of my fave hydrators is now available in supersize! Here’s the low down on the brand new Vichy Mineral 89 Skin Fortifying Daily Booster. Skincare junkies will love this.
I have had this booster in my kit for a couple of years now and continue to love it. If you are looking to boost hydration, this is something you can easily slot into your current regime.
What is Vichy Mineral 89?
This extra skincare step (and I love an extra step) is all about strengthening the skin’s barrier function and protecting it from beauty’s hot topic, pollution. It does this using a combination of Vichy Mineralizing Water and Hyaluronic Acid (and not a lot else) in a breakthrough formula.
The 89 of Mineral 89 refers to a groundbreaking 89% concentration of Mineralizing Water. Until now, the highest concentration achieved was 20%. It is an active, extremely potent ingredient, charged with 15 essential minerals, which makes it very hard to stabilise.
The booster is a fairly new category in skincare and there are quite a few of these products around now. Vichy’s version is a simpler and affordable, yet super effective option and it works to repair, protect and prepare.
What is in it?
This is an incredibly minimalist, clean formulation with a very concise ingredients list.
The Mineralizing Water itself has been proven to stimulate antioxidant defences and reinforce skin’s integrity specifically by stimulating regeneration and improving its barrier function. Using expertise called Exposome, Vichy developed a breakthrough formula based on 89% Mineralizing Water. The Vichy water combines brilliantly with Hyaluronic Acid and together they have a complementary action to protect skin’s integrity and increase its strength. Together they intensely hydrate, smooth and plump the skin, and prepare for subsequent skincare steps, optimising serums and creams.
It is a beautifully light and fast absorbing formula. It feels like a massive drink of thirst quenching water as you apply it and then it sinks into the skin in a flash. Because it’s such a pure formulation, with no fragrance, colour or fillers, it is suitable for the most sensitive skin. Whatever you are already using, you simply use this first to upgrade and amp up your routine. Simple.
It’s the perfect addition to an in-flight beauty routine.
