Pros: 89% of thermal water, a little goes a long way, alcohol-free, comfortable to wear, deep moisturizer, doesn't cause any pimples, immediate results, lightweight formula, nourishes my skin, paraben-free, silicone-free, silky smooth skin right after the first use, suitable for all skin types, undetectable on my skin

Right up, I’m going to say a few words about my skin for you to understand my requirements better. Thus you can evaluate the result I got more properly.

Age: 28

Skin type: combination

Main issues: dryness, dry patches, dullness, first signs of the lack of tone and occasional breakouts on my chin.

My aims: to love myself without makeup and feel attractive!

In 2017 various brands produced plenty of serums as well as gel-like creams with promising claims. I’ve tried so many new launches that year, for example Givenchy, Lancome, Clinique and Clarins, but as a result, Vichy Mineral 89 turned out to be the best skincare product I’ve tried that year!

I’d go as far as to say, that Vichy Mineral 89 is really the best serum among all the new products I’ve tried in 2017 and my skin is going to prove that!

Your Skin's Daily Dose of Strength

Every day, our skin is attacked by elements like pollution, stress to skin, and fatigue, which causes the skin to be dehydrated and dull. Just like your body needs vitamins to be healthy, skin needs minerals to strengthen its moisture barrier and defend itself.

Country: France

Volume: 50 ml

Bottle: glass

Dispenser: pump dispenser

Initially the product comes in a paper package with the suggested use, ingredients and all the necessary information. It doesn’t contain any leaflets inside the box.

1️⃣ Ingredients:

As a rule, I don’t read the list of ingredients, as I’m quite sensitive and if I see all kinds of silicones and parabens on top of it, I stop using the product altogether!

In the case with the Vichy Mineral 89 Serum I was completely happy! The ingredients are all natural, quality. It contains some effective extracts as well as thermal water!

This time I can stop worrying about my health and my skin completely!

Finally I have no film on my face after use and no allergies!

Attention!!! This is such a rare occasion that a product doesn’t contain any alcohol ❌❌❌!!! My respect! I’m totally obsessed, although I became so happy about this product after use and only after a while I learnt the ingredients, which confirmed my happiness after use!



2️⃣First impressions:

  • The glass bottle is very beautiful, stylish and weighty. It makes my day! It looks splendid and it’s really nice to use! Moreover, it’s nice as a gift too!

  • As far as I understand, the serum is transparent and not too liquid as most of the popular serums I’ve used before. This product reminds me of a gel, which melts away instantaneously when it gets into contact with my skin. This is a huge plus.

  • Fragrance-free, which is quite logical taking into account the ingredients and the purpose of the product! However, most Vichy creams and skincare products have a fragrance.

  • It goes a really long way as promised. 2 drops are enough for the whole face. In the picture you can see the drop after pressing the pump just once yet to the full extent. You can press it just a little if you wish to get smaller amount. So, you control it!

  • The pump is of a good quality and gives an opportunity to get the required amount easy-breezy!

  • The transparent gel has a viscous texture and air bubbles in it, which makes it even more attractive!

  • The serum starts dissolving when it comes into contact with my skin, but I have enough time to spread it out evenly!

  • It glides over my face very easily and you can use the product sparingly or apply it generously, it’s up to you. My skin absorbs absolutely everything! More than that, I have silky-smooth, elastic and soft skin whatever the amount of the product I applied!

Direction to use:

I apply the serum morning and night. I love that it works in tracks and makes my skin good-looking, refreshed and very gentle.

I use it alone and don’t feel like needing to apply additional creams after!

I’m pleased with my skin and the comfortable feelings after use!

  • The makeup products apply perfectly, as I love my skin after this serum absorbs completely. In fact, I’ve tried to use a cream after that, but as a result my face was overloaded.

Conclusion: the serum works by itself and doesn’t need any help!

3️⃣ My feel after a while:

  • I wrote this review after 2 weeks of using it!

❄️ It’s the first time I have absolutely no gripes about the product and am 100% pleased with the results!

Every time I apply this serum, I feel refreshed, younger and more attractive.

❄️ It soaks in very quickly and doesn’t leave any oily sheen, film or anything else that I or you had after using serums and which could destroy the impression about serums in general ✅ !

❄️ My face was even and fresh already after a few applications. My dry patches and taut skin disappeared!

❄️ This is the case when I want to touch my skin over and over again, as I had such an abundance of problems some day, which I’ve been trying to counter for many years!

Recommend? Definitely yes!

Price: $29.50

Testing this serum, I didn’t expect any miracles or rather didn’t expect anything at all. But it changed my opinion about these types of skincare products completely. All the serums I’ve tried before were far from being that effective and great as the Vichy Mineral 89 Serum!

This is my favorite serum in my skincare routine. I have good-looking skin at the moment and can go out even without makeup, as I’m totally obsessed with the results!

I recommend you achieve the deep moisturizing and anti-aging effect and refreshed and youthful skin like me!



Thank you everyone who read my review to the end. I’ve tried to describe my opinion about the new serum in detail and to be utterly unbiased!


Have a nice day!
