Why the Vichy Minéral 89 Is a Must-Have Moisturizer for Spring and Summer
Vichy is known for its proprietary volcanic water, an ingredient that’s rich in 15 essential minerals that help strengthen and protect the skin.

With a lightweight formula, it’s become my go-to moisturizer for the spring and summer months. To find out whether the formula is right for you, keep reading for my full review.
My Review of Minéral 89
Before even testing the product, I quickly became obsessed with its sleek packaging. It’s housed in a glass bottle and features an elegant ombré blue design that instantly conjured up images of the bubbling French thermal waters used in its formula.
I was equally as impressed with the product’s texture upon first use.Many hyaluronic acid serums have a liquid consistency that I find make it challenging to determine the right amount to apply. This moisturizer is different; it has a gel-like texture and easy-to-use pump, so I was able to quickly dispense two drops without worrying about wasting product.
After application, I found that there was no greasy or sticky residue left behind. Instead, I felt fresh and hydrated. Another pleasant surprise? It layered nicely under makeup and worked as a primer for my foundation.
A few weeks after incorporating the hyaluronic acid serum into my routine, I noticed that my skin felt more hydrated, plumped and toned. I would definitely recommend Minéral 89 to anyone looking for lightweight hydration as the temperature heats up.
