Vichy Skincare

Beautiful healthy skin is what Shahnaz Loves Beauty is all about. Thanks to the gorgeous 3 products that Vichy sent me I got just that. Vichy Skincare is all about healthy beautiful skin and it’s a brand I recommend a lot. The Mineral 89 Skin Booster was on my radar for a while and I product I had already started using. If you didn’t catch my full review on the bad boy then click here to find out how much I love it. It was the first time using the Vitamin C Ampoules so was excited to get get my hands on this 30 day treatment. Literally where has the Vichy Daily Care Invisible Mist SPF50 UV Protect been all my life? This is a makeup game changer when it comes to applying sun block. A real winner.

The Vichy LiftActiv Specialist Peptide C Ampoules are a 30 day anti ageing treatment. They help with fine lines, wrinkles, firmness and radiance. A concentrated ampoule of Vitamin C  and natural Hyaluronic Acid. Skin feels hydrated and illuminated. Skin gets stressed and tired and often need s supercharge pick me up. This 30 day treatment is good for when the season changes so maybe 3/4 time a year, Consitency in your skincare is important and for the best results apply both in the morning and evening.

Having originated in Korea, ampoules are capsules containing a potent serum featuring a high concentration of active ingredients. The ampoules act like a booster or a shot to achieve an intense result in a short period of time.

Vichy’s are made from air-tight amber glass to protect the contents from UV light, oxidation and contamination for up to 48 hours once opened. There is a lot of product in each one so make are you really massage in all over and down your neck as well. Each ampoule contains 1.8ml of concentrated formula and two doses.

The Ampoules should be used on clean, dry skin after cleansing and before the rest of your skincare regime. Just don’t forget to use an SPF in the morning to protect the skin.

The vitamin C and bio-peptides (short chains of amino acids) in the formulation work for the skin because they help create proteins such as keratin and collagen, which are vital for stronger plumper skin. It also contains natural-origin hyaluronic acid as it holds 1,000 times its own weight in water, attracts water to the skin, and locks it in.

Our skin already produces hyaluronic acid to maintain hydration, but age and environmental factors such as UV rays and pollution can sap our complexion’s vitality. I always say an extra dose of Hyaluronic Acid helps to replenish what it’s naturally lost.

I loved how my skin looked after use definitely glowing and radiant. Will definitely use again. With the right skincare makeup sits better as its not oily like other vitamin c serums on the market.

The Mineral 89 Skin Booster is a fav of mine as its literally like a shot of water to the skin. The key ingredients Hyaluronic acid and 89% of the Vichy Spring Water. Its actually only got 11 ingredients instead of your usual 20. It seriously plumps and hydrates instantly.

Hyaluronic Acid is a molecule that can hold 1000 times its weight in water, to fortify the skin’s natural moisture barrier. When your skin barrier is impaired, you can start to suffer from dryness, irritation, and redness, and blemishes become more likely. The Vichy booster also makes use of glycerin, which works to draw moisture into the skin. Basically I love this stuff.

Its perfect for those with redness, breakouts as it doesn’t clog pores, dehydrated skin or even normal skin as it will plump up your complexion. I love it that much its also featured in shop my favourites.

Vichy Daily Care Invisible Mist SPF50 UV Protect is literally a sun block life saver for me.I have been needing tis for a long time. Its so hard when you are wearing makeup and then having to apply sunblock every 2 hours and ruin your base. So a lot of people including me haven’t applied as often meaning dark spots on the skin.

It’s as it says on the bottle it’s an invisible mist that doesn’t disturb makeup at all. Its got a dry finish so it adds a little glow but without that oily finish. Its an antioxidant with an anti pollutant properties. The mist also has a very high UVB protectant which is amazing especially living in this hot South African climate. Its formula contents Baicalin extract, enriched in antioxiodants that skin needs for defending itself.

Hold it away from your face and close eyes ands mouth and voila its that easy. It’s literally like you have put nothing on your face. Perfect for all skin types and tones and won’t leave a white cast. I just wish it was in a bigger bottle.
