Vichy Summer Skin Saviors

Press Sample and Purchased (Affiliate Links)

I have rounded up three of my all-time favorite, and most coveted, Vichy products that I have used for years, and that I have been using all summer long. They are the perfect skin saviors for this hot weather!

I am a huge fan of thermal water sprays, and Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water is sourced directly from French volcanoes. This soothing and refreshing spray feels amazing against the skin, and I often spritz it on right after I apply my favorite beauty oil to help speed up absorption, and because it allows me to use less oil. This can be used any time of the day, but I do like to spritz my face before going to bed for a little extra hydration. However, in the warm and hot weather, I keep this in the refrigerator and use it whenever I need to cool down and feel refreshed, and since the weather has been very hot in LA, I have been reaching for this with great frequency! Furthermore, it can be used to moisten makeup sponges, used to help set makeup. 

($10.00 for 5.1 oz. from Vichy, Walgreens and SkinCareRX)

According to Vichy.

Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water enriched with 15 rare minerals. 15 clinical studies have proven the skin health benefits of Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water. Recognized by the French Academy of Medicine for its soothing and fortifying properties. Completes every skin care regimen and infused in all Vichy skin care products. 100% pure and natural. Preservative free. Paraben free. Fragrance free. Alcohol free. Non comedogenic. Allergy-tested

- Extremely soothing and infused with antioxidants, Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water is a natural solution for boosting skin quality and health
- A unique combination of 15 rare minerals that give the Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water its remarkable ability to fortify & protect the skin from environmental aggressors
- Spray on face before makeup application or as a booster throughout the day
- Can be used to wet makeup sponges

Ingredients: AQUA / WATER.

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 warmer months 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. 

($29.50 for 1.69 oz. from UltaAmazonDermstore and Walgreens)

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.

    Directions: 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 Gu

    Vichy 3-in-1 Micellar Wipes: I use makeup wipes all of the time, and these micellar wipes are among my very favorites. They gently and effectively remove every trace of makeup, they are gentle enough for sensitive eyes and skin, and they soothe and hydrate rather than irritate and strip the skin.

    ($7.99-$8.99 for 25 wipes from VichyWalgreensDermstore and Amazon)

    According to Vichy,

    Micellar cleansing makeup remover wipes instantly cleanse skin in only one-step. The makeup remover formula, enriched with Vitamin E, soothes and refreshes skin. Skin feels softer and more comfortable.

    These makeup remover wipes are a one-step cleansing solution that:
    1. Cleanse
    2. Remove Waterproof Makeup
    3. Soothe Skin

    Directions: Gently wipe face with makeup remover wipe to remove dirt and all traces of face and eye makeup. Wipe without rubbing face and eyes. Reseal pack to prevent remaining makeup remover wipes from drying out.

    1. These products sound so refreshing for summer weather! And I love that they are safe for sensitive skin. My sunless tanner is based on thermal water and is good for my skin, so I can imagine how wonderful Vichy products must be. Thanks for sharing your favorites! - Angie,

      1. Hi Angie, They really are incredibly refreshing! They are very gentle and kind on sensitive skin. I love to keep the thermal water in the refrigerator during the summer– a spritz to cool down in the heat is wonderful! How wonderful that your sunless tanner contains thermal water!

    2. I am looking at a sample of Vichy Mineral 89 right now on my desk. I've used up a bottle of this terrific serum, and I know I will be purchasing it again in the future. Plus the Thermal Water is iconic!

      1. I completely agree with you about Vichy Mineral 89! I have at least one full bottle left, but will definitely purchase more when I start to get low!
