Beauty Review-MyChelle Dermaceuticals: Vitamin A Plus Serum & Supreme Polypeptide Cream

 

Vitamin A Plus Serum

WP_002079

Skin-refining Vitamin A and nourishing antioxidants improve the texture and smoothness of rough, dull, and congested skin. Retinol and naturally-derived Vit-A-Like* work together to resurface skin, clearing pore blockage and minimizing the appearance of lines. Argan oil, naturally high in Vitamin E and Essential fatty acids, works to balance sebum production.

Give tired skin a healthy boost of restoring vitamins and antioxidants for renewed vibrancy, clear pores, and ultra-smooth textures.

Directions: For ultra-smooth, vibrant skin apply two pumps in the evening. Wait 30 minutes before following with the mist and nourishing cream. Serums may be layered for multiple benefits. This product will increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun; use only at night.

 

My Review

I love that this has a pump action top. It makes it so much easier to get the amount that you need without wasting. You get the right amount and no more.

It is a yellowish creamy like serum that smells absolutely delicious. It smells like flowers to me, but it may smell different to you. It’s the first serum that I’ve seen that actually smells good.

It soaks right in, although they tell right on the bottle to wait 30 minutes before putting anything on top of it so that it has the maximum time to sink into the skin before being smothered by something else.

Just the two weeks that I’ve been using this, I can already tell a big difference in my pores and the clarity of my skin. I had been using a nightcream that was very thick and was clogging up my pores. I could see the blackheads stuck like glue inside my nose pores.

I tried and tried to get the blackheads out. Using tons of different blackhead washes, creams, and ointments and nothing was working. I felt like I had GUNK and JUNK inside my pores. I leaned in real close to the mirrors and started pressing on the blackheads with my fingernails and they were so bad that they started seeping oil out.

It was very nasty, and I ended up cutting my nose with the side of my nail trying to get all the blackheads out. My skin felt like my hair feels when I don’t wash the conditioner all the way out. Greased up and too much product.

This is the only thing that really started helping with the thickness of the pores. I’m not mentioning what night cream this was that clogged them up in the first place, but I will never use it again.

I already have oily skin, but it promised to rejuvenate and replenish my skin cells. Hydrate, moisturize, and renew the skin so I bought it and used it. Worse mistake ever. It’s okay for people who have dry skin, but not me.. I ended up giving it to my mom.

I’m just thankful for the clear, blackhead free pores that I am now sporting. I absolutely HATE wearing foundation unless I have to, and I was seriously sporting foundation AND concealer on my nose to try and hide the hideousness before using the Vitamin A Plus Serum!

I love how healthy and glowing my skin looks now. Now I don’t have to wake up and cake on the concealer and foundation trying to hide blackheads that shouldn’t have been there in the first place!

I can now (on every other day) scrape the dead skin cells off my face. This serum is hands-DOWN the best serum I’ve ever used. Just within the short amount of time I’ve used this- my skin has turned a 180*. All those blocked pores, the oil, and the “dinginess” that came from the blocked pores are now gone!

I can’t believe how amazing this smells, feels, and works in just a short period of time. This is for a variety of skin (all/combination).. so whether you have oily, dry, combination, or even sensitive skin—this is perfect for you!

Supreme Polypeptide Cream

WP_002080

Unscented, nutrient-rich recontouring cream lifts and retexturizes skin for a more refined, youthful appearance. Matrixyl* synthe’6* reduces wrinkle volume by 21% and wrinkle depth by 19% in 8 weeks. Proteasyl* TP Pea Peptide is clinically proven to improve skin’s elasticity, increasing overall firmness by 35% in just 6 weeks. Rice Peptides improve the skin smoothness while Syn*-Coll Peptide triggers skin’s own reparative function to accelerate collagen production.

Directions: For youthful, smooth and radiant skin, apply a quarter-size amount to face and neck AM and PM after cleansing, treating, and applying serums.

My Review

WP_002082

This cream is a thick, white, creamy lotion like cream that goes on after you’ve cleaned your face and applied your toners, mists, and serums. It smells like a fragranced baby powder to me- which is a good thing.

It has immediate actions when going on. The skin just soaks it up and lavishes in it. Although I haven’t been using it for 6-8 weeks, I’ve already noticed that my skins texture has already improved. It increases not only the skin’s elasticity but it improves overall firmness.

I haven’t been using it long enough to say anything about the elasticity, but I can already tell how much my skin loves this cream. My skin looks so moisturized, healthy, and much more supple now.

It is thick but it doesn’t clog pores like other creams *ahem NIGHT creams*.. and it can be used day and/or night and can be applied before sunscreen and after moisturizer during the day.

I love the fact that it moisturizes but isn’t so thick that it causes zits or blemishes in my already oily zones. It has an amazing consistency, thick yet applies lightly and soaks in immediately.

It’s light enough to go under makeup without making it roll up, dissolve, or come off before the end of the day. It actually provide the perfect base for foundation- to where it looks almost airbrushed. Although it has a fragrance, it’s a light refreshing fragrance that doesn’t linger for a very long time.

This cream triggers your skin’s own reparative function so that it helps boost your collagen production. This is what helps your skin look and feel smoother and more firm over time.

As we get older our skin loses much of it’s elasticity and collagen. Although nothing is going to make you look 20 again when you’re 45- other than a face lift of course—there are products out there that can help you along the way!
