I have said it too many times to recall, but I have long been obsessed with French Pharmacy skincare, and Vichy is one of my favorite brands. They have so many amazing products, and I have two current favorites that I want to share with you.
Vichy Normaderm 3-in-1 Micellar Solution is a wonderful micellar water that is specifically formulated for oily skin, and while I have normal/combination skin I have been reaching for this lately because I have been having mild breakouts on my chin. It is very gentle, it doesn't strip the skin, and yet it thoroughly cleanses. It has really helped clear my skin, and while I only use it as a spot treatment– it should prove effective on your entire face if you have oily skin.

According to Vichy,

This Micellar no rinse cleanser is both effective and gentle. It contains Zinc in order to purify oily skin and is suitable for sensitive skin.

Normaderm 3 in 1 Micellar Water Cleanser for oily skin. It is a one-step cleanser that purifies skin, removes make up and tones without dryness or irritation. Suitable for sensitive skin and eyes.

Directions: Apply micellar water with a cotton pad. Smooth the pad from the center of the face outwards to remove impurities. Pay attention to the eye area: cover eyes with a cotton pad and press lightly to soak skin and lashes. Remove make-up by pressing gently towards the front of your eyelashes. Do not rinse off.

Ingredients: Aqua / Water - Hexylene Glycol, Glycerin,Poloxamer 188, Zinc PCA, Sodium Lactate, Sodium Chloride, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Disodium EDTA, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Citric Acid, Dihydrocholeth-30 and Polyaminopropyl Biguanide.

$14.50 for 200 ml. from Vichy USA and Target.
Vichy Mineral 89 is described as a "new generation face moisturizer." It features 89% of Vichy's iconic Mineralizing Thermal Water that is further enhanced by Hyaluronic Acid to deeply boost hydration and fortify the skin. The consistency is that of a lightweight gel-like serum that sinks into the skin immediately leaving it hydrated with a luminous, ethereal glow. Dehydrated and dull skin gives way to comfortable, refreshed and moisturized skin without any greasy residue or stickiness. Furthermore, this fragrance-free moisturizer plumps fine lines, nourishes the skin and leaves skin soft, smooth and supple. It offers my normal/combination skin enough moisture and hydration during the summer that I can forgo a regular moisturizer altogether, and it pairs beautifully with my favorite serums and face oils, but during the rest of the year I layer it with richer moisturizers.

According to Vichy,

For the 1st time, a breakthrough moisturizing formula, with 89% Mineralizing Thermal Water to help strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier and make skin more resistant to visible aging caused by environmental factors combined with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump skin.

Minéral 89 face moisturizer fortifies and makes skin more resistant to visible aging caused by pollution, stress to skin, and fatigue. Its moisturizing formula boosts hydration to replenish the skin's moisture barrier. As a result, skin feels more hydrated, plumped, and toned. Day after day, skin radiates with a healthy glow.

  • Solution: Skin's Daily Dose of Strength
  • Hyaluronic acid for 24 hour hydration
  • Plumped, toned and healthy looking skin
  • Enhance the skin's barrier function
  • Restore pH value and reinforce immune defense
  • Stimulate antioxidant defenses

Vichy's Suggested Use: Apply morning and evening to cleansed skin by spreading a touch of booster all over the face. Spread with outward movements from the middle of the face, without applying too much pressure. All skin types benefit from Mineral 89. It can be easily included in any beauty regimen after cleansing and before your usual serum and/or moisturizer.

Ingredients: Aqua, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, PEG/PPG/Polybutylene Glycol-8/5/3 Glycerin, Methyl Gluceth-20, Citric Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbomer, Biosaccharide Gum-1.

Overall Assessment: I really love Vichy products, and love discovering more of their offerings. I am already on my second bottle of Vichy Mineral 89, and while I will go through the Vichy Normaderm 3-in-1 Micellar Solution much slower, I will definitely use it whenever I have a breakout.
