I received this 50ml Vichy Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid serum bottle via a website called Sampleo, which is a kind of Octoly for regular people, e.i. you don’t have to be a youtuber or blogger with a lot of subs to get products to test. I don’t have to write a review on my blog, but I’ve found the Vichy Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid so good that I thought it would be worth sharing my experience with it here.

What I think of the Vichy Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid
If you know me, you know I like to be sassy and nitpicky at times, especially with more expensive skincare products, but I’m a bit at a loss for words here.
It actually doesn’t take weeks and weeks of usage (at the time of writing this review, I’ve been using it for three weeks) to see results. The extreme hydration, plumping and healthy glow are visible upon the first application.
What I particularly enjoy about it is that it penetrates the skin really quickly thanks to its gel-like texture. The lightweight texture is very reminiscent of the Clinique Moisture Surge that I’ve already mentioned here, there and everywhere. My skincare routine is pretty long, so it helps when I don’t have to wait 4 minutes for one of the products to dry to get cracking. Much like Clinique products, it doesn’t smell of anything and I know that’s a big plus for many people.
I absolutely recommend the Vichy Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid if your skin is mature, dry, sensitive or dehydrated, but it’ll work on pretty much any skin type.
Finally, a little product goes a long way. It is recommended that you use two pumps, but I find that one is more than enough. This serum might be on the pricey side (especially across the pond), but those 50ml will last you a very long time.
