Being a working mom of two, a lot of my daily routines have changed-especially for my skin. I am sleep less, chasing around a two-year old, while also caring for a newborn. Needless to say, my skin has definitely been affected by all this along with being neglected. Finding products that are safe for my skin and actually show results (and feel good!) have been a big priority for me! I am constantly getting messages on whether or not I use any specific products for anti-aging so I am super excited to finally share with you guys a couple that I love from French skincare brand Vichy!

Most recently, I have been using the Vichy Mineral 89 and LifeActiv Vitamin C Serum which have been super easy for me to incorporate to my routine. Vichy is the #1 anti-aging brand in European pharmacies, driven by potent, safe, clean formulation. At the core of Vichy products is the proprietary Vichy – Mineralizing Thermal Water which is rich in 15 minerals to protect skin against daily aggressors like pollution, stress and fatigue. I’ve always been curious about French skincare since I read and hear about it so much.. And Parisians have this natural beauty to them! This may be the secret that they all use because each time I apply in the morning when I wake up and at night before I go to bed, my skin instantly feels hydrated and plump. I start the morning with the Vichy’s LiftActiv Vitamin C Serum, which is formulated with 15% Pure Vitamin C and Natural Origin Hyaluronic Acid. This dermatologist-grade Vitamin C Serum brightens and firms skin (in as little as 10 days!). To lock in the Vitamin C I follow with Mineral 89, formulated with Vichy’s proprietary 15 mineral-rich water and Natural Origin Hyaluronic Acid to plump, hydrate and fortify the skin. Both products are safe for all skin types and concerns (even sensitive skin). During my pregnancy with Esme, my skin became super sensitive so I had to be very careful on what I put on was putting on my skin. I really learned so much about what I should be looking for in the ingredients part of skincare products. Both of these are formulated with pure and potent ingredients! NO NASTIES-the stuff my doctors would tell me to stay clear of like parabens, colorants, etc. I have really carried all that I learned during my pregnancy to my everyday routine now. Head to to shop with the code ARIELLE18 and get 20% off. Be sure to let me know what you all think!
