IT’s hot out and I’m SUMMER READY WITH VICHY !


This past weekend we hit 32 degrees in Ottawa!  It was a scorcher and I loved every moment of this Summer heat! I spent the whole day at the beach with the kiddies!

Now that the heat is officially here , I had to switch up my skin care routine to include some of my favourite Summer products from Vichy. If you’re an avid reader of my blog , ahem….I hope you are 🙂  then you already know that I’m a huge Vichy fan. I don’t think I have come across any of their skincare products that I didn’t like. No joke! I know it’s rare to discover a brand that meets all your skin care needs but Vichy truly does for me. That’s why every Summer I buy the same 3 sun products and this Summer is no different.  They work beautifully on my skin and I know they are protecting me from sun damage.

Must have Products

The 3 products I buy every year are the Vichy Idéal Soleil SPF 60 Sunblock for body application, Vichy Idéal Soleil 50 Sunblock for face application and Idéal Soleil After Sun Spray.

I find the Idéal Soleil SPF 60 too thick to use on my face, but you can most definitely use it for the face.  I prefer a lighter formula so I opt for the  Idéal 50 which is lighter in texture and absorbs really quickly on the skin so you can apply your makeup right on top of it. 

The IdĂ©al Soleil after sun spray is a unique product. It’s one of those products that you never knew you needed until you tried it. My first bottle was provided to me by Vichy 2 Summers ago but I loved it so much it’s been on my repurchase list every Summer since then.  It has amazing hydrating qualities due to the mix of vigorous and active ingredients such as  shea oil, apricot kernel oil, coriander seeds, and blackcurrant seeds.

After-Sun can be used in 2 ways:

On DRY skin while your out and about enjoying the sun . It will instanlty nourish and hydrate parched skin OR on WET Skin. You can spray it on, preferably in the shower as I do,  to cool your skin off from the Summer heat.  I pump a few drops of the oil in my palm and rub it on myself. I let it sink in for a minute or two then rinse it off. The fragrance is so invigorating and it feels like a gel body wash with the added benefits of the nourishing ingredients.

New Vichy products 

Vichy was kind enough to send me 2 of their newest launches just in time for Summer heat to ensure my skin stays hydrated.

Vichy Double Glow Peel Mask

The Double Glow Peel Mask is a very potent product. It contains:

  • AHA to remove dead skin cells
  • Exfoliating properties in the form of Rocks from Volcanic origins, and
  • Vitamin CG to help illuminate skin tone

Its simple to use and very efficient in removing dead skin. Apply the mask and let sit for 5 minutes and then you can gently remove it with luke warm water. Apply your night time moisturizer immediately to reap all the benefits that this mask offers!

I was also fortunate to receive the highly anticipated Mineral 89 Skin Booster!

Vichy Minéral 89 Daily Skin Booster

The Minéral 89 booster contains 89%  mineralizing thermal water and hyaluronic acid and contains no paraben , silicones, frangrance, colorant or alcohol. The skin booster is best used after cleansing and  to help protect against environmental factors like pollution and cold or hot weather. It boosts hydration and replenishes skins moisture barrier.

I’ve been using the MinĂ©ral 89 booster exactly as prescribed, right after cleansing and before my Idealia serum , morning and night and I’m really happy with the results. Now that the hot weather is here,(for good I hope), I can see myself needing extra hydration to my skin and this amazing product definitely delivers!

Have you tried any to these Vichy products? If so leave me a comment below! I love hearing from you 🙂

      If you go to Shoppers and ask for a sample of any Vichy product, they will give you one just so you can try before you buy. That way if you don’t like it no harm done 🙂
