Review: Vichy Mineral 89 vs. AVON Hydra Fusion Serum

Review Vichy Mineral 89

I used to be a huge fan of hyaluronic acid in my nighttime skin care routine back when it took the skincare market by a storm back in 2014. I even wrote about it in this post where I reviewed a bunch of my favorite night moisturizers. As a combination-skin girl, I was an early believer in "HA" because of its incredible ability to provide hydration and plumpness to the skin. Over the winter I always move more towards oils, acids and thick balms to keep my skin soft, but this summer I tried to lighten things up to avoid those pore-clogging creams. Welcome, Vichy Mineral 89 and AVON's Hydra Fusion Serum, two clear gels that make my skin look like a fresh bouncy ball.


AVON Hydra Fusion Serum Review

I was inspired by Allanarama’s tutorials to start using my Vichy Mineral 89 serum as a makeup primer to help alleviate dryness, flakes and fine lines under makeup. I adore this trick because unlike thick or oily skincare, this serum dries down to a soft finish that really allows my makeup to adhere nicely on the skin. I have an almost identical product from Avon that I've been loving in the same way, and wanted to see if they truly are twins.

Let's compare the two to see how they stack up:


Vichy Mineral 89 Review

Minéral 89 Fortifying & Hydrating Daily Skin Booster With Hyaluronic Acid $49.95

This refreshing serum is composed of high-dose Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water and natural origin hyaluronic acid to strengthen skin’s barrier function.

Ingredients:

Aqua, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Peg/Ppg/Polybutylene Glycol-8/5/3 Glycerin, Methyl Gluceth-20, Citric Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Carbomer, Biosaccharide Gum-1.

Anew Hydra Fusion Serum $29.99

Use this jelly-like serum after cleansing a.m./p.m.or use as needed to spot treat dry areas. Hyaluronic acid acts like a sponge by holding up to 1000 times its weight in water for lasting hydration. It's also ideal for someone wanting overall deep hydration or a spot treatment for extra-dry areas, even elbows!

Ingredients:

Water/Eau; Glycerin; Pentylene Glycol; Propanediol; Sd Alcohol 40-B; Sodium Hyaluronate; Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract; Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid; Phenoxyethanol; Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil; Ppg-26-Buteth-26; Methylparaben; Fragrance/Parfum; Trioxaundecanedioic Acid; Disodium Edta; Sodium Hydroxide; Sodium Citrate; Arginine; Citric Acid; Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer; Propylene Glycol. 

Verdict:

These are definitely very similar products, and the Vichy version has less ingredients, and no parabens. The Avon serum will run you less money, so it could be a great option for those who are on a tighter budget. The Avon packaging is a little less bulky too, but they are both in glass bottles. Overall, a staple in my morning beauty routine right now - for sure.
