MyChelle SKIN CARE REVIEW: the 3 Skin Care Ingredients Every Skin Type Needs
I was very excited to try skin care products by MyChelle, as I have already heard many good things about this cruelty free (find more cruelty free brands here) and natural skin care brand- and: I was not disappointed! MyChelle offers a huge selection of skin care items- but the ones they send me, hit my "anti aging" nail on the head: truly the 3 most important skin care ingredients that we all need to fight those wrinkles and age spots are: sunscreen, retinol and a vitamin C serum (as I have preached many times on my blog!). Yes, you need these 3 items in your skin care regime, if you care about your skin!
MyChelle PERFECT C SERUM ($44.00)
The MyChelle Perfect C Serum offers: Plant stem cells, Antioxidant Complex, and potent Vitamin C for collagen-rich skin.
- Highest concentration of pure 17% L-Ascorbic Acid- Combats signs of aging by strengthening collagen and evening skin tone- Contains Buddleja Plant Stem Cells to protect against sun damage
Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Ascorbic Acid (L), Alcohol, Glycerin, Aqua (Water), Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate, Ergothioneine (L), Buddleja Davidii Meristem Cell Culture, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Lipids, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Peel Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Citrus Paradisi (Pink Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Fructooligosaccharides (D-beta), Beta-Carotene (D), Glucosamine HCI (D), Wine Extract, Astaxanthin, Tocotrienols, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Tocopherol (D-alpha), Ubiquinone (CoQ10), Benzyl Alcohol, Xanthan Gum
The MyChelle Perfect C Serum comes in a convenient pump bottle- a tiny pump gives you enough serum to cover your face. Don´t forget your neck and the back of your hands to get rid of an uneven skin tone and to get rid and even prevent those age spots! It smells like a bitter-sweet fruit punch and goes on light weight and easy. A tiny bit of tackiness dissolves within a minute. If you don´t have time to make your own Vitamin C serum, this is as good as it gets with a store bought vitamin c serum. Use it every morning after cleansing and follow up with sunscreen. I recommend this highly!
MyChelle REMARKABLE RETINAL SERUM ($47.50)
What it is:
a wrinkle-fighter with Vitamin A, Ceramide 3, and Plant Stem Cells.
- Strongest cosmeceutical Vitamin A available without a prescription- Reduces fine lines by 42% and redness by 70% in 4 weeks- Patented technology creates a less irritating formula
Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Gluconolactone, Retinal (Retinaldehyde), Rubus Chamaemorus (Cloud Berry) Seed Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Callus Culture Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass) Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Tocopherol (D-alpha), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Allantoin, Ceramide 3, Pentylene Glycol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Cyclodextrin, Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate, Xanthan Gum, Phytic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract
The MyChelle Remarkable Retinal Serum comes also in a convenient pump bottle. A pea size of the light weight and bright yellow colored serum is enough for your whole face. I also use it on the back of my hands. It contains Retinal which is a form of Vitamin A (just like Retinol)- so important in our anti aging skin care regime. Use this serum every night after cleansing your face. Top of with a moisturizer if needed.

Wow- I am impressed by the MyChelle Sun Shield! It is a very light weight feeling mineral sunscreen (which is much safer than the use of chemical sunscreens). I have usually an oily t-zone that gets shiny in no time. Living in humid Florida does not really help but oh surprise: the MyChelle Sun Shield keeps up with my greasiness! It does not feel heavy and my face stays matte! Apply this sunscreen every morning (yes: even on rainy days!) after your vitamin c serum! Interesting add on for our active gals: this product is reef safe! Winner!
