One of my friends was absolutely raving about MyChelle’s The Perfect C Serum since the day that she picked it up. She said it made her skin feel plump and that it really minimized her fine lines and wrinkles. My first reaction was that $40 for .5 ounces of a concentrated serum of Vitamin C would have to be amazing to make it worthwhile. As the week went on though, and I started to notice my friend’s skin glowing, I decided I should stop resisting the temptation and just go ahead and buy it.
As you can see in the photo above, the bottle really is itty bitty. MyChelle C Serum says that it is an active antioxidant treatment with 17% L-ascorbic acid. It is free of phthalates, parabens, propylene, glycol, ureas, EDTA, fragrance and artificial colors. The claim is that it supports healthy collagen production, strengthens your skin’s immune function and promotes healing of the skin. How does the C Serum do this? Well the antioxidants are supposed to eliminate free radicals and the L-ascorbic acid and glucoasamine should boost your skin’s production of healthy collagen.
Claims always sound magnificient, but how does MyChelle C Serum actually work in practice? My overall experience was marvelous. My regimen was to wash my face at night, apply 2-3 pumps of the C Serum, wait 5-10 minutes, and then apply my usual night-time moisturizer. After using the C Serum every night for two weeks, I could definitely see changes in my skin. My skin brokeout far less, and any minor pimples that I got healed very quickly. The fine lines around my mouth (what I call “smile wrinkles”) and by the corners of my eyes were definitely becoming less apparent.
My experience with MyChelle’s C Serum was not all fun and games though. The first time I used it, I did not wash my hands right after applying the serum. You can see the orange-ish color of the serum, before applying it to my face, in the palm of my hand above. The next morning I woke up with a bright orange palm. I ran to the mirror and noticed that my face also had a strange orange-ish tint to it. This may have something to do with the fact that I have very fair skin, but I was not at all pleased when I first saw this. But much to my relief, the orange stain washed off of my hand and face fairly easily. I would be pleased if MyChelle came out with a clear formula though. My only other complaint about this product is the odor, which neither my husband nor I find pleasant, though I suppose this is the trade-off for getting an all natural product without added perfumes. Overall, these two complaints are greatly outweighed by the results I saw from using this product, so two thumbs up from me!
