Vichy Minéral 89 was one of my favourite new skincare products from 2017. From the first use it became a staple in my daily complexion regimen, the main focus of which is hydration, especially in these deep-freeze months.
Now I'm thrilled to be able to share my love for this simple moisture booster with a great giveaway: You could win a Vichy Canada skincare prize that includes a bottle of Vichy Minéral 89 + a Vichy skincare regimen suited to your complexion! Winners will be able to choose from Normaderm (for breakout-prone skin), Idealia (for first signs of aging), LiftActiv (to firm skin and minimize wrinkles), and Neovadiol (for mature skin).
Even better, we'll be choosing three Canada-based beautygeeks winners!
As I noted in this gush-fest post about Minéral 89, the fragrance-free formula is 89% Vichy thermal water + glycerin + hyaluronic acid + a gelling component to make it easy to apply. (The gelling agent also slows the rate of evaporation from skin so you can layer essence and serums on top without losing that dose of extra hydration.)
For years my first step in AM and PM skincare application has been a light misting of thermal water to moisten my skin – or re-moisten – after having cleansed and patted dry. Damp skin absorbs skincare a bit better than dry skin does – the thermal water acts like a conduit. (You know how water beads on top of dry soil, but sinks right in if the soil is already damp or wet? Like that.)
Vichy Minéral 89 has, for the most part, replaced that first misting step; it serves the same encourages-absorbtion purpose. That little hit of extra H2O also helps shore up my moisture barrier and, along with my serums and moisturizer, keeps my skin supple and safe from the icy outdoors as well as dry, heat-blasting interiors. (I used Minéral 89 all summer too; dehydrated skin loves a drink of water even when the humidity is high.)
