5-Second Pick-Me-Up: Mineral 89

Take a hot-second to drench your skin in lightweight, fortifying hydration.

*We’ve partnered with Vichy USA because those 5 extra seconds should really be about us, right mom?

Sleep and time: those are the two precious things that new moms never seem to have enough of (and would do anything) to get back. That’s what makes Mineral 89 from Vichy USA such an essential part of a bare-bones daily routine, since it can fake a bit of both, and doesn’t take more than a few seconds.

On days when I barely have time to fasten all the hooks of my bra or tie my shoes— much less do some sort of multi-step skincare routine— this is my vital one step (apart from sunscreen, of course). Just a quick pump and a few swipes over my skin and I get a massive boost of hydration, thanks to the moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid and mineralizing thermal water.

This stuff is about as pure as you can get; It’s called Mineral 89 because it’s literally made from 89% water that comes from volcanic rainwater collected in the chic spa town of Vichy, in France. The water contains 15 skin-strengthening minerals, including iron, potassium, calcium, and manganese. The clear gel is super lightweight and fast-absorbing, so there’s no waiting for it to seep in, and it doesn’t leave any stickiness or residue. My face goes from looking parched and fatigued to perky and plump, and the fortifying, antioxidant activity keeps working all day long.
