The “Vichy Mineral 89 Fortifying and plumping daily booster” by Vichy comes in a fancy glass bottle that is transparent but gradates in translucent color from completely transparent to marine blue. The bottle has black inscriptions on it and a white and silver dispenser pump that can be seen through a transparent cap. Because it is made of glass, the bottle is a bit heavy.
The texture of the “Mineral 89 Fortifying and plumping daily booster” is very light-weight and has a gel-like consistency.
Although the packaging indicates that the product is fragrance-free, the “Mineral 89 Plumping Daily Booster” has a strong chemical smell.
This product is suitable for all skin types.
In the morning and the evening, apply two drops of the product on the face before your regular skin care routine.
The “Mineral 89 Fortifying and plumping daily booster” by Vichy gets its name because it contains 89% thermal water which is very rich in minerals. We tested this product as recommended, in the morning and the evening before our regular skin care routine. We found that the face absorbs the product very quickly and hydrates almost instantly. The feeling is like the skin drank water. Even hours after application, the face felt moist and dewy but not sticky.
The appearance of the face was radiant, and the skin felt soft, supple and luscious. The product did not cause irritation and worked well with other products because it dries quickly. However, since the “Mineral 89 Plumping Daily Booster” is not a moisturizer, we recommend sealing it in with a layer of moisturizing cream with SPF protection as this will give a boost to the product and will allow the skin to be protected.
The average price market for “Mineral 89 Fortifying and plumping daily booster” by Vichy is $43.7/50 mL which lasts a while given that only 4 pumps are needed per day.
