Vichy was founded in 1931 by Dr. Haller, who discovered the benefits of Vichy Thermal Spa Water on the skin.
This water, rich with minerals and antioxidants, improved the quality of the skin, soothed sensitivity and accelerated skin wound healing.
Dr. Prosper Haller was convinced that beauty came from healthy skin, as a result, he pioneered the first line of dermocosmetics with this mineral-rich water.
The Vichy Mineral 89
The Vichy Mineral 89 is an oil-free, paraben-free, alcohol-free, silicone-free, fragrance-free, allergy-tested and dermatologist-tested serum.
This face serum contains hyaluronic acid and 15 Mineral-Rich Vichy Volcanic Water to hydrate, plump, strengthen and repair your skin barrier.
It's suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin types, and it's all thanks to their amazing formula made with only 11 ingredients.
The packaging of this face serum showcases what's on the inside, which is the face serum.
When I opened the packaging and I saw the Vichy Mineral 89, the first thing I thought, and I kid you not, was water which is very suiting because the products of the brand are powered by the Vichy Thermal Spa Water.
The Vichy Mineral 89 comes in a glass bottle with either 30ml, 50ml or 75ml (you can choose the size you want to purchase), the price is excellent because it goes accordingly to each amount which is quite a lot for your money's worth.
It has a watery serum-like consistency, which makes it easy to spread evenly over your face while it absorbs quickly into your skin.
I was very shocked that the moisturizer had no scent at all; not even chemical which makes this face serum even better; specially for those who can’t stand or are allergic to scent.
