I wanted to try the Vichy eye cream from the Mineral 89 range for a while. And last month, I had the opportunity to have it in my hands in the form of a pleasant surprise. A good thing about being a pharmacist is that from time to time, we receive some treats, from brands, who want to promote their products. Between us, I had never received a full-size product from Vichy, so I was pleased to have received what I wanted to try.
If you never heard about this cream, this is a partner to Vichy Minéral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Booster. Minéral 89 Eyes Hyaluronic Acid Eye Fortifier, is designed to hydrate and protect the skin barrier around the delicate eye area. A hydrating eye serum, enriched by Vichy’s Thermal Mineralizing Water, Hyaluronic Acid, and Caffeine to strengthen, hydrate, and energize. It promises a smooth and bright eye contour whilst protecting the skin barrier.

When to use and how to use:
Use daily in the morning to awake tired eyes and boost hydration.
1. Apply to clean dry skin morning and evening.

I have been using this product for about one month, and I like the way it feels when I apply it – it is not greasy, doesn’t have fragrance, and doesn’t leave any residue. I like it because I can apply moisturizer over and don’t feel clogged up. I tried some heavy eye creams in the past that caused me Milia, but I’m safe with this eye cream!
It feels like I’m putting on water, and it feels very natural. The gel pump is perfect, to maintain the freshness of the product. You only need one squeeze for both eyes. Because the formula is very watery, one pump is more than enough! It feels cool when I dab it around the eye area, and I like it. Skin feel instantly soothed and looks revitalized and brighter. Hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin.
I have not seen any major difference in the reduction of fine lines. I can say that the skin is smoother, and that’s more visible when I apply the concealer. Before, the concealer didn’t look like it does now – like a second skin, impeccable! My dark circles are still here, but that could take a lot more time of use. Although I have not seen any results yet on my main problem- dark circles – I would still recommend this product to a friend for all the other reasons above!
