MyChelle Dermaceuticals Review

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

MyChelle Dermaceuticals is an American skincare company that has recently expanded to the Canadian market. The company is a pioneer in the beauty industry, using scientifically advanced formulas with ethically sourced ingredients to make products that are vegetarian, cruelty-free, and free of phthalates, parabans, sulphates, ureas, artificial fragrances and colors, petroleum, GMOs and gluten. The company was kind enough to send me some products to review, but I was impressed before I even tried them because I am all for environmentally-friendly, cruelty-free products. After testing the products for over 6 weeks, I remain very impressed with this company and have actually found a new holy grail skincare item!

REFINING SUGAR CLEANSER | I was so excited to see the Refining Sugar Cleanser in the box as I had heard other bloggers raving about this product and I really wanted to try it. This product contains peptides to combat aging by rebuilding collagen and hyaluronic acid to improve hydration and prevent water loss. As evidenced by the name, the cleanser contains natural sugar and initially feels quite gritty. However, the sugar quickly dissolves into a gentle, creamy lather, making it suitable for daily use. And as an added bonus it has a sweet, marshmallow-like scent! I've been using this product nearly every day for the past six weeks and I love it. The sugar effectively scrubs my face while the cream leaves it feels hydrated. Since I started using this, my overall skin condition has improved and I rarely ever experience an oily t-zone anymore. I will definitely be repurchasing this once my tube is empty! The Refining Sugar Cleanser contains 104mls and retails for $32 CAD.

PERFECT C SERUM | Unfortunately, some of the Perfect C Serum leaked out in the box, but luckily I was able to salvage most of it. This product contains 17% Ascorbic Acid, or Vitamin C, which brightens the skin, diminishes wrinkles, smoothes texture and aids in wound healing. It also contains Buddleja Davidii Stems C, which is a stem cell that protects the skin against damage, reduces inflammation, and helps prevent visible signs of aging. I've been using one pump of this product every morning before applying moisturizer and my skin appears brighter. The only downside of this product is the very peculiar scent (to me it smells like burnt popcorn) but it isn't a deal breaker! This is the first time I've used a serum and I will continue to include it in my daily routine. The Perfect C Serum contains 15ml and retails for $56 CAD.

SUPREME POLYPEPTIDE CREAM | The Supreme Polypeptide Cream is a nutrient-rich anti-aging moisturizer. This worried me a little initially because while I think it is never too early to start an anti-aging skincare routine, I don't actually have any signs of aging at this point. I'm not sure if it's because I'm still in my (late) 20s or if it's because I've been blessed with good genes, but most people think that I am still in high school. In any event, this cream is super-thick and rich, with a herbal-y scent (it does come in an unscented version though!). It contains a number of peptides and claims to reduce wrinkle volume by 21% and depth by 19% in 6 weeks of use. Again, I don't have any wrinkles so I cannot comment on those claims. However, I have been using this product daily and despite how creamy and luxurious it is, it has successfully moisturized by skin without making it oily. While I won't repurchase this particular cream, I definitely want to try some of MyChelle's other moisturizers such as the Pumpkin Renew Cream. The Supreme Polypeptide Cream contains 35ml and retails for $70 CAD.

REMARKABLE RETINAL SERUM | The final product that I received is another anti-aging product - the Remarkable Retinal Serum. Retinal is 500x more effective than the most potent form of non-prescription Vitamin A and works to promote skin radiance, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and helps improve acne, follicular papillose, and oily skin. This is a thick, yellow serum that is best applied in the evening as it increases your skin's sensitivity to the sun. Again, this product has a strong, herbal-like scent (reminds me of LUSH products, for those who are familiar with that company) which doesn't bother me personally. Despite the fact that this product is meant to improve skin texture and help with acne, I found that it made me break out in small bumps on my forehead. Apparently that is a common issue when you initially start using products containing Retinol, and it supposedly subsides once your skin adapts. However, because I don't have issues with acne, nor do I have any wrinkles or fine lines, I did not continue to use this product. The Remarkable Retinal Serum contains 30ml and retails for $60 CAD.

Overall, I am very impressed with MyChelle Dermaceuticals and I cannot wait to try more products from them in the future! The only product that did not work for me was the Remarkable Retinal Serum, and while I would not necessarily repurchase the Perfect C Serum or the Supreme Polypeptide Cream, I would definitely try other serums or creams more suited to my skin type. As for the Refining Sugar Cleanser - I will definitely be repurchasing another one of those, as well as recommending it to every one I know.

MyChelle Dermaceuticals is currently available for purchase in Canada at the Shoppers Drug Mart Beauty Boutique. Be sure to let me know if you decide to pick up any of their products!
