MyChelle Dermaceuticals Review (Part 1)

Hello, hello!

As you all probably know, I absolutely love skincare products. So when I saw on twitter that MyChelle Dermaceuticals was looking for Canadian Beauty Bloggers, I knew that I wanted to work with them as their products are based on Clean Science (vegetarian, cruelty free, recyclable, and free of phthlates, parabens, sulfates, ureas, artificial fragrances and colours, petroleum, GMOs and gluten).

I was super excited to find out that they are expanding into the Canadian market, starting with four products from their line at select Murale stores (owned by Shopper’s Drug Mart / Pharmaprix). The first four products being launched are the Refining Sugar Cleanser, Remarkable Retinal Serum, Perfect C Serum and the Supreme Polypeptide Cream – out of which I received three (the cleanser and two serums). I also received  four other products from their line to test and review.

Today I’m reviewing three products, and will be reviewing the remaining four tomorrow.

Before getting to the individual product reviews, I want to talk about the packaging. Each product type (cleanser, serum, moisturizer) is colour coded. And contains product information on the sides of the box – Clean Science information, ingredients, product information, and usage instructions.

Refining Sugar Cleanser (3.5oz / 104ml, msrp $32 CAD / $25 USD)

Natural sugar and intoxicating Vanilla-infused cleanser that gently exfoliates surface impurities as it transforms into a creamy, foaming lather—leaving skin radiant and refined. Boosted with anti-aging Matrixyl® Synthe’6™ Peptide, bioactive Plant Extracts, and Hyaluronic Acid to help keep skin hydrated.

I really love this scrub, it is gentle and turns creamy as the sugar dissolves. It has a mild sweet scent of vanilla with a hint of something that smells bright to my nose. It might be the honeysuckle, I’m not sure. My skin feels so soft and smooth after using this one. By adjusting the amount of water you use, you can tailor the amount of exfoliation.

MyChelle Dermaceuticals

Ingredients: Sucrose, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Canola Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Silica, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Vanillin, Zeolite, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38, Crocus Chrysanthus Bulb Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate (L), Sodium Polyglutamate, Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Acacia Senegal Gum, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Alcohol, Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrin, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract 

Perfect C Serum 17% (0.5 oz / 15ml, msrp $56 CAD / $44 USD)

Advanced multi-tasking Vitamin C formula reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. A high active level of 17% L-Ascorbic Acid, the only effective anti-aging form of Vitamin C, and Buddleja Plant Stem Cells brighten, protect against photo-damage, and combat the visible signs of aging.

First of all, I love the pump packaging, one pump will give enough to cover the entire face. It smells better than most Vitamin C serums, due to the inclusion of essential oils (tangerine, lavender, pink grapefruit). I love Vitamin C serums, and this one is my favourite one that I’ve tried thus far!

Pumpkin Renew Cream (1.2 oz / 35ml, msrp $35 CAD / $28 USD)

An essential lightweight daily moisturizer with antioxidant-rich Pumpkin Seed Oil and Cloudberry Extract to protect and nourish skin. Astaxanthin, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E prevent dehydration, and replenish and balance skin’s moisture levels.

One of my favorite body butters is made with pumpkin seed oil, so I was excited to see that I received a pumpkin facial cream. It is super hydrating without being heavy or greasy on my skin. My skin stays moisturized all day. Love this one!

  1. I’ve been wanting to try the MyChelle sunscreen that contains only clearn zinc oxide. It was always sold out though!
    I’ve not tried anything yet but good to hear they’re expanding in Canada. The Vitamin C serum sounded good initially but it’s got alcohol as one of the top ingredient – why?
