The folks at MyChelle were kind enough to send me new goodies from their Spring 2017 skincare line, and I’ve been happy to test them out. I have dubbed 2017 the year of skincare after all. At this point, I’ve used the products for a couple of weeks, and I feel comfortable sharing my thoughts.
I’ve always been curious about MyChelle, but I’ve never tried the brand until now. The Spring 2017 line features a tinted sunscreen, a vitamin c serum, and a mycelllar water — all very on trend products right now.
In the spirit of my previous anti-haul post, I’m going to be very honest about how these products worked for me and if I would purchase them with my own money. Keep in mind, these are how the products worked for my specifically. I’ll start with the products I liked most to the least.
The Perfect C Serum – I like this stuff, and it’s relatively affordable compared to other ridiculously priced serums out there, looking at you, Tata Harper (though I do REALLY love some of your stuff and have repurchased it). I think the Maya Chia Super Couple serum was beginning to break me out on my forehead, which is the area of my face that never breaks out. I had to stop using it for now. The MyChelle serum, on the other hand, doesn’t irritate me at all. It’s more of a gel, sticky texture that sinks right into the skin. (One low point – the pump for this product is broken. The others are fine). At this point, I’m not sure if it’s actually reducing my fine lines or giving me any anti-aging benefits, but I’ll continue to use the entire bottle. Then, I’ll let you know if I truly need to repurchase. It will be between buying this or, ironically, a larger size of the Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex, which is a lot more affordable than her other serums and truly makes my skin look plumper.
Tinted Sunscreen – This reminds me a lot of the old Marie Veronique Organics tinted skin perfecter….I cannot remember what it’s called. Oh right — the moisturizing face screen. They’re extremely similar in texture and coverage. I’m still wary of using any all over face/spf product aside from the Pratima Neem Sunscreen because I know that one doesn’t make me breakout. I think this product could be drying on some people’s skin, but that dryer texture is more of a plus for me and my oily, acne-prone face. The shades pictured above are natural tan and nude.
Comparing it now to the Suntegrity 5-in-1 Tinted Sunscreen in Light on the back of my hand, the MyChelle is way more viscous coming out of the pump. It sounds like there’s a tiny metal ball inside the bottle that bounces around to help keep the product from separating when you shake it. (Suntegrity is a much more traditional, cream texture). This actually makes the MyChelle super easy to apply. The opacity of the Mychelle is also better than the Suntegrity, but it sort of settles into fine lines. Its finish is matte, but it leaves my skin feeling soft. It doesn’t really have a scent. I’m going to keep playing around with it in terms of wear time.
Mycellar Water – I’ve never been tempted to try this type of product before, but I was sort of curious about the hype once I had the much-celebrated mycellar water in my hands. Honestly, I don’t get what all the fuss is about. It doesn’t really remove makeup that well, and I much prefer the Elizabeth Dehn Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil oil for removing makeup or my first step in a double cleanse. I don’t see myself purchasing this.
So, there you have it! I’ll keep you updated on my experience with the vitamin c serum and tinted sunscreen. Check out my Instagram stories for more frequent updates on my daily skincare :). Have you guys tried MyChelle? Are you interested in anything from this collection?
