MyChelle Skin Care offers clean, healthy, effective, science backed skin care at an affordable price point.
I received the trio of Remarkable Retinol Serum, Perfect C Serum and Replenishing Solar Defense SPF 30 that are meant to treat, refine, brighten and protect my complexion with powerful actives and botanicals.
After cleansing and using an essence or concentrate to prep my skin for maximum uptake of beneficial ingredients, I apply a serum. I make sure that any serum (or serums) I apply are packed with my skin's "power ingredients" to provide real results. One of my power ingredients is Vitamin C. This antioxidant prefects and brightens my complexion. MyChelle Perfect C Serum contains 17% Vitamin C, an effective level that will, with consistent use, deliver real and visible results to the skin.

MyChelle Perfect C Serum is a light yellow fluid that has some scent that reminds me vaguely of sulfur. It isn't strong and it doesn't linger. I don't walk around smelling like fire and brimstone or anything. Well... Not because I've used this serum, anyway. This serum spreads easily across my skin, drops in almost immediately and doesn't leave behind any after feel.
I am an avid active ingredients mixologist and one of my favorite ingredients to cocktail with Vitamin C is Retinol. Another of my skin's "power ingredients," Retinol refines, clarifies, brightens, fades hyper pigmentation and post acne marks and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and provide that good Retinol glow. If you haven't tried Retinol what are you waiting for? Trust me, once you get started with this wondrous substance and start seeing what it can do for your complexion, you won't want to be without it!
MyChelle Remarkable Retinol Serum contains the most potent form of Vitamin A in over-the-counter preparations. (No percentage is provided. I normally use a 2.5%.) Buffered with natural Ceramide 3 and Orange Plant Stem Cells to provide natural hydration and reduce redness. Very sensitive beauties be aware that this serum contains citrus peel and lavender oils. If you are pregnant or breast feeding, consult your physician before using Retinol.

A lightweight, bright yellow creamy serum, MyChelle Remarkable Retinol Serum has a very light citrus scent that dissipates nearly instantly on application. This serum drops instantly into my skin, leaving it feeling smooth and not at all sticky. I don't experience any stinging, warmth, redness or other discomfort. I don't have sensitive skin and I've been using Retinol for years.
A word to Retinol newbies or anyone with very sensitive skin: Although this serum is very gentle, go in slowly. First, test in a small spot and gauge any reaction. Start off with once or twice a week and build up, from there.
Once you have treated your skin to the good actives and your skin is busily engaging in increased cell turnover and producing new, fresh, younger looking and feeling skin it is crucial that we protect our revitalized complexion with an effective sunscreen.
