Aren’t you all happy when you find the perfect combination for your daily routine? Well I am and I am happy to share mine with you!
I was scrolling on Instagram one day (you should follow me at @stralthy) and stumbled upon the newest product from Vichy. As I can’t really be a normal person and spend just the right amount of money on things, I went and bought this one.
Discover your skin’s daily dose of strength, combining 15 Mineral Rich Water with Hyaluronic Acid to fortify skin and make it more resistant to visible aging caused by pollution, stress to skin, and fatigue. Minéral 89 face moisturizer, with 89% Mineralizing Thermal Water, delivers a boost of hydration for a vibrant, healthy glow.
First, my skin is oily in the T-zone and dry on my cheeks and chin so finding the right product is somehow hard for me. Anyway, I went to the pharmacy and requested this little bottle then tried it for some weeks. Even though the lady at the pharmacy told me that it will make my skin shine like the sun as this product is very “hydrating” I have to completely disagree with her.
It is definitely not very “hydrating” at least not for my face. I would describe it to be like the perfect for hot summer days at it is very easy on your face. My skin is soft after I apply it but I can steel feel some dry patches here and there but I have to say that I’m more than ok with it. I’ve even applied it under my foundation and I have nothing to complain about.
One thing that I really like about it is that it’s working really well with my Jade Roller. I’ve learned a little secret from Valeria Lipovetsky and I place my roller in the fridge so in the morning when I’m using it with this booster my face feel awaken and refresh.
I’m using my Jade Roller in the morning after I’ve washed my face. I tend to retain a lot of water (I know I should drink more) so this one really helps with the puffiness.
So, time for conclusions. This two are definitely a perfect match but even though I would buy this Jade Roller all over again, I can’t really say the same about the Vichy Mineral 89. It’s pricey (26 Euro) and it doesn’t really do the trick for me. For sure I am going to finish this bottle and maybe by then my opinion will be changed. In any case, I will let you know on my Instagram.
